Complex numbers 20 10.0%
Vectors 18 9.0%
Integration & its applications 15 7.5%
Differential equations 13 6.5%
APGP 11 5.5%
Functions (Inverse, composite, even function) 9 4.5%
Graphing techniques 7 3.5%
Sequence and series, sigma notation 7 3.5%
Mathematical Induction 5 2.5%
Maclaurin’s series 4 2.0%
Binomial expansion 4 2.0%
Subtotal 140 70.0%
Statistics Marks Percentage
Poisson distribution 11 5.5%
Probability 10 5.0%
Approximation of distribution 9 4.5%
Hypothesis testing 9 4.5%
Permuations and combinations 8 4.0%
Correlation and regression 8 4.0%
Sampling 4 2.0%
Binomial distribution 1 0.5%
Subtotal 60 30.0%

As usual, these are the four important modules:

Module Percentage
Calculus (Differentiation, integration, differential eqn, maclaurin) 29.5%
