The format of Paper 1 and Paper 2 were almost same but Paper 2 was more lengthy as compared to Paper 1. Students found Paper 2 more difficult as compared to Paper 1.

The good number of attempts in this paper was 40 to 45 at an accuracy of 85% to 90% and that would get a score of 115 plus out of 180, which is a decent score for getting into the top IITs.

Questions were there from both 11th and 12th class syllabus in almost equal proportion in all the three subjects.

Section 3 of each subject had 4 questions. Each question had 2 matching list, and only one out of the 4 options was matching.

This section was relatively more tedious and difficult as it required a lot of precision.

Overall Analysis of Paper I & II

Overall score of 250 plus is a good score for securing a rank under 1500 and getting into the top IITs. At a combined score of 220 plus, one can expect a rank of 5000 plus. 

A score of 280 plus will fetch a rank under 500 which will get sure shot admission in the top 2 IITs in the Computer Science.

A score of 220 plus is also a decent score for getting a rank under 4000 and admission in the next 5 IITs.

With a combined score of 200 plus, one can expect a rank of 6000 plus, and admission in other IITs.
