TSC Secondary level Mathematics Curriculum

TSC Secondary level Maths Questions Paper

Teachers Service Commission has recently changed the curriculum of all level teachers for the recruitment by open competition. The examination system is divided into two categories; General Examination and Subjective examination.General examination is of 100 full marks and objective/multiple choice questions will be asked. The pass marks is 50. This examination is for all the subjects. Here you will get both types TSC Secondary level Mathematics Curriculum. The curriculum of General Examinations can be obtained from the given link below.

Curriculum of General Examination

Second paper is of subject wise. Each subject teachers should attend and pass this examination. It will be subjective type and full marks is 100 . Time is 3 hours Here you will get the curriculum of Mathematics for the Secondary level.
