NDA 2 Maths Question Paper 2019 Analysis

The NDA 2 paper for Mathematics 2019 was a perfect blend of difficult and easy questions, thus maintaining the difficulty level of the paper as “average”. As per the usual pattern of the paper, the Algebra section consisted of 40 questions, Analytical geometry consisted of 12 questions, and Statistics and Probability consisted of 20 questions. This time the Statistics required conceptual knowledge. The Trigonometry consisted of 15 questions with a few of them based on the ‘periodicity’ which is a bit different from the pattern followed in the previous years. In the  Matrices and Determinants, the weightage was less than expected, with just 5 questions. Moreover, the Vector Algebra also consisted of just a few questions, the questions required a thorough knowledge of the vector concepts as well as the 3-D and 2-D figures together. For the Integral calculus and Differential, the Calculus followed almost 20 questions together, but the pattern was slightly different from that of the previous year’s. And the applications of derivatives maintained their importance.


So, in the NDA 2 maths question paper the students who prepared well for the Algebra, Trigonometry, Differential Calculus, and Integral Calculus were in advantage. However, for attempting the Matrices and Determinants, Statistics and Probability and Vectors, the students needed to be conceptually strong. So, after analysing this paper, it can be concluded that the NDA is expecting more knowledge of ‘Functions’ from the students, as the majority of the questions were based on functions in some of the other ways.
