Phase 2 of the CUET exam is ongoing, and students looking for important topics for the maths exam are already in a tricky phase.

Preparing for these topics will definitely help you with the exam.

After the exams, the CUET Answer key for phase 2 and the CUET results will be declared.

So you must appear for the exam with full preparations in order to get the desired college.

Important Topics for Maths Exam in CUET Phase 2

There are many topics to be covered, and it is always recommended that you cover the maximum of the syllabus. However, if you are unable to do so, you can still have a look at these topics and do well in your exams. Many questions are expected around these topics, so having your concepts cleared will eventually land you at a better rank.

Pattern for Mathematics and Applied Mathematics

  • Section A: 15 Questions are compulsory for both core Math and Applied Math students.
  • Section B-1: For Core math students, only 25 out of 35 questions are needed to be done.
  • Section B-2: For applied Mathematics students, only 25 out of 35 questions are needed to be done.

Some of the important topics to be covered for Maths Exam in CUET phase 2 are-

Relation and Function- There were 2-4 questions in the phase 1 exam on this topic. So having a look at these sub-topics will be very helpful-

  1. Types of relation, reflexive, symmetric, transitive, equivalence, inverse
  2. Functions domain and range
  3. Types of function- one on one, many one, onto, into, bijection
  4. Inverse function
