Mathematics Analysis

  • Level of Maths was similar to previous year but little bit on lengthy side.
  • Questions from quadratic, progression, straight line, circle and probability were little bit tricky.
  • Thirteen questions were asked from 11th, sixteen questions from 12th and one question was mixed of 11th and 12th (NCERT syllabus).
  • Total four questions were asked from 2-D in spite of five questions in general.
  • The options were carefully designed. Most probable wrong answers were also included in the options.
