Both open-ended and closed ended questions were present in the questionnaire, which was designed for the proposed research. Some of the common difficulties encountered by the students in learning mathematics is identified in the present scenario and also the perceptions of the teachers about the mathematical difficulties faced by students were identified and recommendations were made finally, which were contemplated on the learning strategies and the beliefs of the students.
