As the CDS 2 2019 examination is over, the students must be curious to know about their paper. Here we are sharing the detailed analysis of the CDS 2 2019 Maths paper. This analysis will contain the comparison of CDS 2 2019 paper with the previous year’s paper as well as the number of questions asked and their level of difficulty.


Mathematics is for those students who want to join INA, IMA and AFA as their future institutions. This section also comprises of a total of 100 questions and each question carries 1 mark.

Here we are analysing the Mathematics paper of CDS II 2019 by dividing the questions based on their topics.

                                                                                                  TYPE OF QUESTION NO. OF QUESTIONS
Number System 20 questions
Mensuration 15 questions
Geometry 11 Questions

Based on the analysis we can say that CDS II 2019 maths section was moderate- difficult. Out of 100 candidates can mark around 60 to 69 good attempts. Most of the questions were of expected difficulty but the paper was balanced.

Talking about the topics, Number system and Equations was a tough nut to crack. Some of the questions from trigonometry section were also of advanced order. Mensuration played a big role this year but the level of questions was low. Overall the paper was more or less expected.

However for the CDS II 2019 expected cut off we believe that it would remain more or less similar to the cut off of CDS I 2019.
