Hello aspirants, let’s begin with one of the most important articles of NDA exam preparation (for 16th April 2023). You might have seen **NDA GAT preparation**, **NDA English preparation** and even **NDA Maths preparation** which I have released last week and getting awesome response from audience. Preparing for any competitive exam like NDA begins with detail analysis of previous year papers and exact NDA syllabus released by official sources.

Because UPSC has to stick with the syllabus which it has released at the time of Notification. NDA Maths syllabus is given in detail which can be highly helpful in your preparation, but NDA GAT paper syllabus is very generalized. That’s the reason why I have broken down **NDA Exam syllabus** with every important topic you must study. I have taken help of:

*Official Notification released by UPSC**Previous year trends of NDA exam**Important topics NDA focuses in every attempt**Experience of many successful NDA aspirants*

To make this “NDA Syllabus 2023” article a **detailed guide**. This detailed article on NDA exam syllabus will be highly helpful in your preparation as targeted study can be done if you have **exact NDA syllabus and Chapter wise weightage of NDA exam**. (especially during self study)

## NDA Maths syllabus 2023

Consider yourself lucky that you have detailed NDA syllabus of **Paper 1**, that is, **Maths paper**. We will first see exact syllabus of Maths paper and then focus on topic-wise weightage.

**NDA Maths paper consists of following major topics:** (120 questions for 300 marks)

Let’s have a look of **detail NDA syllabus** of each topic mentioned above.

(** Note:** Many aspirants start preparing for Maths directly from NDA specific book without knowing NDA syllabus of Maths. Knowing latest exam pattern and syllabus of nda exam is a symbol of smart working aspirant )

### 1. Algebra Subtopics:

Scoring Subtopics: Logarithm, Complex Number, Sets & Relations, Quadratic Equation, Binary Number (Don’t loose even 1 Mark here!)

Concept of set, operations on sets, Venn diagrams. De Morgan laws, Cartesian product, relation, equivalence relation. Representation of real numbers on a line. Complex numbers-basic properties, modulus, argument, cube roots of unity.

Binary system of numbers. Conversion of a number in decimal system to binary system and vice-versa. Arithmetic, Geometric and Harmonic progressions. Quadratic equations with real coefficients. Solution of linear inequations of two variables by graphs. Permutation and Combination.

Binomial theorem and its applications. Logarithms and their applications.

### 2. Matrices and Determinants:

9-10 Questions from this topic= 25 Free Marks (Low Hanging Fruits!)

Types of matrices, operations on matrices. Determinant of a matrix, basic properties of determinants. Adjoint and inverse of a square matrix, Applications-Solution of a system of linear equations in two or three unknowns by Cramer’s rule and by Matrix Method.

### 3. Trigonometry:

Even with basic trigonometry, you can solve 40-50% questions. 2-3 questions are very difficult and needs to be left. But rest all are easy to moderate. (And don’t be afraid of heights and distance problems. They are also scoring questions)

Angles and their measures in degrees and in radians. Trigonometrical ratios. Trigonometric identities Sum and difference formulae. Multiple and Sub-multiple angles. Inverse trigonometric functions. Applications-Height and distance, properties of triangles.

### 4. Analytical Geometry of two and Three dimensions:

Very easy topic (especially 3D geometry) and exact same type of questions repeat from previous year question papers

Rectangular Cartesian Coordinate system. Distance formula. Equation of a line in various forms. Angle between two lines. Distance of a point from a line. Equation of a circle in standard and in general form. Standard forms of parabola, ellipse and hyperbola.

Eccentricity and axis of a conic. Point in a three dimensional space, distance between two points. Direction Cosines and direction ratios. Equation two points. Direction Cosines and direction ratios. Equation of a plane and a line in various forms. Angle between two lines and angle between two planes. Equation of a sphere.

### 5. Differential Calculus:

Special efforts needed. Need to study chapters in proper sequence.No shortcut can be applied here

Concept of a real valued function–domain, range and graph of a function. Composite functions, one to one, onto and inverse functions. Notion of limit, Standard limits—examples. Continuity of functions— examples, algebraic operations on continuous functions.

Derivative of function at a point, geometrical and physical interpretation of a derivative—applications. Derivatives of sum, product and quotient of functions, derivative of a function with respect to another function, derivative of a composite function. Second order derivatives. Increasing and decreasing functions. Application of derivatives in problems of maxima and minima.

### 6. Integral Calculus and differential equations

Special efforts needed. Need to study chapters in proper sequence.No shortcut can be applied here

Integration as inverse of differentiation, integration by substitution and by parts, standard integrals involving algebraic expressions, trigonometric, exponential and hyperbolic functions. Evaluation of definite integrals—determination of areas of plane regions bounded by curves—applications.

Definition of order and degree of a differential equation, formation of a differential equation by examples. General and particular solution of a differential equations, solution of first order and first degree differential equations of various types—examples. Application in problems of growth and decay *(crucial part of NDA Syllabus for Maths paper)*

### 7. Vector Algebra:

60% vector algebra questions (5-6 Questions) are easy-moderate, so score atleast in these questions for 15 marks

Vectors in two and three dimensions, magnitude and direction of a vector. Unit and null vectors, addition of vectors, scalar multiplication of a vector, scalar product or dot product of two vectors. Vector product or cross product of two vectors. Applications—work done by a force and moment of a force and in geometrical problems.

### 8. Statistics and Probability:

#### A) Statistics syllabus:

Topic with second highest weightage in NDA Exam after Trigonometry. Also all statistics questions can be easily solved if you have command over previous year papers

Classification of data, Frequency distribution, cumulative frequency distribution—examples. Graphical representation— Histogram, Pie Chart, frequency polygon—examples. Measures of Central tendency—Mean, median and mode. Variance and standard deviation— determination and comparison. Correlation and regression.

#### B) Probability syllabus:

Fact: More number of questions are asked from Probability than integration & definite integral combined. Still, its most neglected topic by aspirants. So, please don’t do this mistake

Random experiment, outcomes and associated sample space, events, mutually exclusive and exhaustive events, impossible and certain events. Union and Intersection of events. Complementary, elementary and composite events. Definition of probability—classical and statistical— examples. Elementary theorems on probability—simple problems. Conditional probability, Bayes’ theorem—simple problems. Random variable as function on a sample space. Binomial distribution, examples of random experiments giving rise to Binominal distribution.
