Sanfoundry Mathematics Certification

Sanfoundry offers online certification in Mathematics for free. We offer multiple certification exams for school students, depending on the class in which they are studying i.e., students of Class 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th.

The certification exam is divided into two parts: Qualifier Test and Certification Test.

First step is to take the "Qualifier Test". If you have scored at least a B grade in the "Qualifier Test", then only you would be eligible to take part in the online "Certification Test". If you have scored an A* (Genius) or A (Excellent) grade in the certification test, then you will be awarded a “Certificate of Merit” in Mathematics from Sanfoundry.

Mathematics Certification Exam Overview:

Here are the details and format of the Certification Exam:

  • Format: Online & Multiple Choice
  • Prerequisite: Yes (Qualifier Test)
  • Total Questions: 50
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Negative Marking: Yes
  • Fee: Free
Marking Scheme:
In the online certification test, you will be given 2 points for every correct answer. There will also be negative marking of -1 for every wrong answer. So, you have to be more careful in your test. If needed, you should skip to the next question and come back to that question later so that you can manage the time more effectively during the test.

Based on your score, you would be given one of the following Grades:

Grade A* – Genius (You scored 100%)
Grade A – Excellent (Your score is in the range of 80% to 99%)
Grade B – Good (Your score is in the range of 60% to 80%)
Grade C – Average (Your score is in the range of 40% to 60%)
