NCERT Solutions For Class 12 Maths Chapter 2 Inverse Trigonometric Functions: Exercise 2.2

Question:1 Prove the following: 3\sin^{-1}x = \sin^{-1}(3x - 4x^3),\;\;x\in\left[-\frac{1}{2},\frac{1}{2} \right ]


Given to prove: 3\sin^{-1}x = \sin^{-1}(3x - 4x^3)

where, x\:\epsilon \left[-\frac{1}{2},\frac{1}{2} \right ] .

Take \theta= \sin ^{-1}x or x = \sin \theta

Take R.H.S value

\sin^{-1}(3x - 4x^3)

= \sin^{-1}(3\sin \theta - 4\sin^3 \theta)

= \sin^{-1}(\sin 3\theta)

= 3\theta

= 3\sin^{-1}x = L.H.S

Question:2 Prove the following: 3\cos^{-1} x = \cos^{-1}(4x^3 - 3x), \;\;x\in\left[\frac{1}{2},1 \right ]


Given to prove 3\cos^{-1} x = \cos^{-1}(4x^3 - 3x), \;\;x\in\left[\frac{1}{2},1 \right ] .

Take \cos^{-1}x = \theta or \cos \theta = x ;

Then we have;


\cos^{-1}(4x^3 - 3x)

= \cos^{-1}(4\cos^3 \theta - 3\cos\theta) \left [ \because 4\cos^3 \theta - 3\cos\theta = \cos3 \theta \right ]

= \cos^{-1}(\cos3\theta)

= 3\theta

= 3\cos^{-1}x = L.H.S

Hence Proved.

Question:3 Prove the following: \tan^{-1}\frac{2}{11} + \tan^{-1}\frac{7}{24} = \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{2}


Given to prove \tan^{-1}\frac{2}{11} + \tan^{-1}\frac{7}{24} = \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{2}

We have L.H.S

\tan^{-1}\frac{2}{11} + \tan^{-1}\frac{7}{24}

=\tan^{-1}\frac{\frac{2}{11} + \frac{7}{24} }{1 - \left ( \frac{2}{11}\times\frac{7}{24} \right ) } \left [ \because \tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1}y = \tan^{-1} \frac{x +y}{1 - xy} \right ]

=\tan^{-1}\frac{11\times 24 }{\frac{11\times24 -14}{11\times 24} }

=\tan^{-1}\frac{48 + 77}{264 -14}

=\tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{125}{250}\right ) = \tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )

= R.H.S

Hence proved.

Question:4 Prove the following: 2\tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{7} = \tan^{-1}\frac{31}{17}


Given to prove 2\tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{7} = \tan^{-1}\frac{31}{17}

Then taking L.H.S.

We have 2\tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{7}

=\tan^{-1} \frac{2.\frac{1}{2}}{1 - \left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2} + \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{7} \because 2\tan^{-1} x = \tan^{-1} \frac{2x}{1- x^2}

=\tan^{-1} \frac{1}{(\frac{3}{4})} + \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{7}

=\tan^{-1} \frac{4}{3} + \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{7}

=\tan^{-1} \frac{\frac{4}{3} + \frac{1}{7}}{1 - \frac{4}{3}.\frac{1}{7}} \left [ \because \tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1} y = \tan^{-1} \frac{x +y}{1- xy}\right ]

=\tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{\frac{28+3}{21}}{\frac{21-4}{21}} \right )

=\tan^{-1} \frac{31}{17}

= R.H.S.

Hence proved.

Question:5 Write the following functions in the simplest form: \tan^{-1}\frac{\sqrt{1 + x^2}- 1}{x},\;\;x\neq 0


We have \tan^{-1}\frac{\sqrt{1 + x^2}- 1}{x}


\therefore \tan^{-1} \frac {\sqrt{1+x^2} - 1}{x} = \tan^{-1}\frac{\sqrt{1+\tan^2 \Theta - 1}}{\tan \Theta}

=\tan^{-1}(\frac{sec \Theta-1}{tan \Theta}) = \tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{1-cos \Theta}{sin \Theta} \right )

=\tan^{-1}\left ( \frac {2sin^2\left ( \frac{\Theta}{2} \right )}{2sin\frac{\Theta}{2}cos\frac{\Theta}{2}} \right )

=\tan^{-1}\left ( \tan\frac{\Theta}{2} \right ) = \frac{\Theta}{2} =\frac{1}{2}\tan^{-1}x

=\frac{1}{2}\tan^{-1}x is the simplified form.

Question:6 Write the following functions in the simplest form : \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2 -1}},\;\; |x| > 1


Given that \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2 -1}},\;\; |x| > 1

Take x =cosec\ \Theta or \Theta = cosec ^{-1}x

\therefore tan^{-1}\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2-1}}

=tan^{-1} \frac{1}{\sqrt{cosec^2 \Theta -1}}

=tan^{-1}(\frac{1}{\cot \Theta})

=tan^{-1}(\tan \Theta) = \Theta

= cosec^{-1}x

=\frac{\pi}{2}- \sec^{-1}x [\because cosec^{-1}x + \sec^{-1}x = \frac{\pi}{2}]

Question:7 Write the following functions in the simplest form: \tan^{-1}\left(\sqrt{\frac{1-\cos x}{1 + \cos x}} \right ),\;\; 0< x < \pi


Given that \tan^{-1}\left(\sqrt{\frac{1-\cos x}{1 + \cos x}} \right ),\;\; 0< x < \pi

We have in inside the root the term : \frac{1-\cos x}{1 + \cos x}

Put 1-\cos x = 2\sin^2\frac{x}{2} and 1+\cos x = 2\cos^2\frac{x}{2} ,

Then we have,

=\tan^{-1}\left(\sqrt{\frac{2\sin^2\frac{x}{2}}{2\cos^2\frac{x}{2}}} \right )

=\tan^{-1}\left( \frac{\sin \frac{x}{2}}{\cos\frac{x}{2}} \right )

=\tan^{-1}(\tan\frac{x}{2}) = \frac{x}{2}

Hence the simplest form is \frac{x}{2}

Question:8 Write the following functions in the simplest form: \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{\cos x -\sin x }{\cos x + \sin x} \right ),\;\; \frac{-\pi}{4} < x < \frac{3\pi}{4}


Given \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{\cos x -\sin x }{\cos x + \sin x} \right ) where x\:\epsilon\:( \frac{-\pi}{4} < x < \frac{3\pi}{4})


=\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{\cos x -\sin x }{\cos x + \sin x} \right )

Taking \cos x common from numerator and denominator.

We get:

=\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{1 -(\frac{\sin x}{\cos x}) }{1+(\frac{\sin x}{\cos x}) } \right )

=\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{1 - \tan x }{1+\tan x } \right )

= \tan^{-1}(1) - \tan^{-1}(\tan x) as, \left [ \because \tan^{-1}x - \tan^{-1}y = \frac{x - y}{1 + xy} \right ]

= \frac{\pi}{4} - x is the simplest form.

Question:9 Write the following functions in the simplest form: \tan^{-1} \frac{x}{\sqrt{a^2 - x^2}}, \;\; |x| < a


Given that \tan^{-1} \frac{x}{\sqrt{a^2 - x^2}}, \;\; |x| < a

Take x = a\sin \theta or

\theta = \sin^{-1}\left ( \frac{x}{a} \right ) and putting it in the equation above;

\tan^{-1} \frac{a\sin \theta}{\sqrt{a^2 - (a\sin \theta)^2}}

=\tan^{-1} \frac{a\sin \theta}{a\sqrt{1 - \sin^2 \theta}}

=\tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{\sin \theta}{\sqrt{\cos^2 \theta}} \right ) = \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{\sin \theta}{{\cos \theta}} \right )

=\tan^{-1}\left ( \tan \theta \right )

=\theta = \sin^{-1}\left ( \frac{x}{a} \right ) is the simplest form.

Question:10 Write the following functions in the simplest form: \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{3a^2x -x^3}{a^3 - 3ax^2} \right ),\;\;a>0\;\;;\;\;\frac{-a}{\sqrt3} < x < \frac{a}{\sqrt3}


Given \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{3a^2x -x^3}{a^3 - 3ax^2} \right )

Here we can take x = a\tan \theta \Rightarrow \frac{x}{a} = \tan \theta

So, \theta = \tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{x}{a} \right )

\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{3a^2x -x^3}{a^3 - 3ax^2} \right ) will become;

=\tan^{-1}\left(\frac{3a^2a\tan \theta -(a\tan \theta)^3}{a^3 - 3a(a\tan \theta)^2} \right ) = \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{3a^3\tan \theta -a^3\tan ^3 \theta}{a^3 - 3a^3\tan ^2 \theta} \right )

and as \left [ \because \left(\frac{3\tan \theta -\tan ^3 \theta}{ 1- 3\tan ^2 \theta} \right) =\tan 3\theta \right ] ;

=3 \theta

=3 \tan^{-1}(\frac{x}{a})

hence the simplest form is 3 \tan^{-1}(\frac{x}{a}) .

Question:11 Find the values of each of the following: \tan^{-1}\left[2\cos\left(2\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ]


Given equation:

\tan^{-1}\left[2\cos\left(2\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ]

So, solving the inner bracket first, we take the value of \sin x^{-1} \frac{1}{2} = x.

Then we have,

\sin x = \frac{1}{2} = \sin \left ( \frac{\pi}{6} \right )

Therefore, we can write \sin^{-1} \frac{1}{2} = \frac{\pi}{6} .

\tan^{-1}\left[2\cos\left(2\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ] = \tan^{-1}\left[2\cos\left(2\times\frac{\pi}{6} \right ) \right ]

= \tan^{-1}\left[2\cos\left(\frac{\pi}{3} \right ) \right ] = \tan^{-1}\left[2\times\left(\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ] = \tan^{-1}1 = \frac{\pi}{4} .

Question:12 Find the values of each of the following: \cot(\tan^{-1}a + \cot^{-1}a)


We have to find the value of \cot(\tan^{-1}a + \cot^{-1}a)

As we know \left [\because \tan^{-1}x + \cot^{-1} x = \frac{\pi}{2} \right ] so,

Equation reduces to \cot(\frac{\pi}{2}) = 0 .

Question:13 Find the values of each of the following: \tan \frac{1}{2}\left[\sin^{-1}\frac{2x}{1+x^2} + cos^{-1}\frac{1-y^2}{1+y^2} \right ],\;\;|x|<1,\;y>0 and xy<1


Taking the value x = \tan \Theta or \tan^{-1}x = \Theta and y = \tan \Theta or \tan^{-1} y = \Theta then we have,

= \tan \frac{1}{2}\left[\sin^{-1}\frac{2\tan \Theta}{1+(\tan \Theta)^2} + cos^{-1}\frac{1-\tan^2 \Theta}{1+(\tan \Theta)^2} \right ] ,

= \tan \frac{1}{2}\left[\sin^{-1}(\sin2\Theta) + cos^{-1} (\cos 2\Theta) \right ]

\because \left[\cos^{-1}(\frac{1-\tan^2 \Theta}{1+ \tan^2\Theta}) = \cos^{-1} (\cos2 \Theta) , \right ]

\because \left[\sin^{-1}(\frac{2\tan\Theta}{1+ \tan^2\Theta}) = \sin^{-1} (\sin2 \Theta) \right ]


=\tan \frac{1}{2}\left[2\tan^{-1}x + 2\tan^{-1}y \right ] \because \left[\tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1}y = \tan^{-1} \frac{x+y}{1- xy} \right]

=\tan \left [ \tan^{-1}\frac{x+y}{1-xy} \right ]

=\frac{x+y}{1-xy} Ans.

Question:14 If \sin\left(\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{5} + \cos ^{-1}x \right ) =1 , then find the value of x .


As we know the identity;

sin^{-1} x + cos^{-1} x = \frac {\pi}{2},\ x\ \epsilon\ [-1,1] . it will just hit you by practice to apply this.

So, \sin\left(\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{5} + \cos ^{-1}x \right ) =1 or \sin^{-1}\frac{1}{5} + \cos ^{-1}x =\sin^{-1}(1) ,

we can then write \cos^{-1}x = \frac{\pi}{2} - \sin^{-1}x ,

putting in above equation we get;

\sin^{-1}\frac{1}{5} + \frac{\pi}{2} - \sin^{-1}x =\frac{\pi}{2} \because \left [ \sin^{-1}(1)=\frac{\pi}{2} \right ]

= \sin^{-1}x = \sin^{-1} \frac{1}{5}

Ans. x = \frac{1}{5}

Question:15 If \tan^{-1}\frac{x-1}{x-2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{x+1}{x+2} =\frac{\pi}{4} , then find the value of x .


Using the identity \tan^{-1}x+\tan^{-1} y = \tan^{-1}{\frac{x+y}{1-xy}} ,

We can find the value of x;

So, \tan^{-1}\frac{x-1}{x-2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{x+1}{x+2} =\frac{\pi}{4}

on applying,

= \tan^{-1}{\frac{\frac{x-1}{x-2}+\frac{x+1}{x+2}}{1- \left ( \frac{x-1}{x-2} \right )\left ( \frac{x+1}{x+2} \right )}}

=\tan^{-1}\frac{\frac{(x-1)(x+2)+(x-2)(x+1)}{x^2-4}}{1-\frac{x^2-1}{x^2-4}} = \tan^{-1} \left [ \frac{2x^2-4}{-3} \right ] = \frac{\pi}{4}

=\frac{2x^2-4}{-3} = \tan (\frac{\pi}{4})=1

= 2x^2=1 or x = \pm \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} ,

Hence, the possible values of x are \pm \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} .

Question:16 Find the values of each of the expressions in Exercises 16 to 18. \sin^{-1}\left (\sin\frac{2\pi}{3} \right )


Given \sin^{-1}\left (\sin\frac{2\pi}{3} \right ) ;

We know that \sin^{-1}(\sin x) = x

If the value of x belongs to \left [ \frac{-\pi}{2},\frac{\pi}{2} \right ] then we get the principal values of \sin^{-1}x .

Here, \frac{2\pi}{3} \notin \left [ \frac{-\pi}{2},\frac{\pi}{2} \right ]

We can write \sin^{-1}\left (\sin\frac{2\pi}{3} \right ) is as:

= \sin^{-1}\left [ \sin\left ( \pi-\frac{2\pi}{3} \right ) \right ]

= \sin^{-1}\left [ \sin \frac{\pi}{3} \right ] where \frac{\pi}{3} \epsilon \left [ \frac{-\pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right ]

\therefore \sin^{-1}\left (\sin\frac{2\pi}{3} \right )=\sin^{-1}\left [ \sin \frac{\pi}{3} \right ]=\frac{\pi}{3}

Question:17 Find the values of each of the expressions in Exercises 16 to 18. \tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right )


As we know \tan^{-1}\left ( \tan x \right ) =x

If x \epsilon \left ( -\frac{\pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right ). which is the principal value range of \tan^{-1}x .

So, as in \tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right ) ;

\frac{3\pi}{4}\notin \left ( -\frac{\pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right )

Hence we can write \tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right ) as :

\tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right ) = \tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right) = \tan^{-1}\left [ \tan(\pi - \frac{\pi}{4}) \right ] = \tan^{-1}\left [ \tan (\frac{-\pi}{4}) \right ]

Where -\frac{\pi}{4} \epsilon \left ( -\frac{\pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right )

and \therefore \tan^{-1}\left (\tan\frac{3\pi}{4} \right )=\tan^{-1}\left [ \tan (\frac{-\pi}{4}) \right ]=-\frac{\pi}{4}

Question:18 Find the values of each of the expressions in Exercises 16 to 18. \tan\left(\sin^{-1}\frac{3}{5}+\cot^{-1}\frac{3}{2} \right )


Given that \tan\left(\sin^{-1}\frac{3}{5}+\cot^{-1}\frac{3}{2} \right )

we can take \sin^{-1}\frac{3}{5} = x ,

then \sin x = \frac{3}{5}

or \cos x = \sqrt{1-\sin^{2}x}= \frac{4}{5}

\Rightarrow \tan x = \frac{\frac{3}{5}}{\frac{4}{5}} = \frac{3}{4}

\Rightarrow \tan^{-1}\frac{3}{4}= x

We have similarly;

\cot^{-1} \frac{3}{2} = \tan^{-1} \frac{2}{3}

Therefore we can write \tan\left(\sin^{-1}\frac{3}{5}+\cot^{-1}\frac{3}{2} \right )

=\tan\left(\tan^{-1}\frac{3}{4}+\tan^{-1}\frac{2}{3} \right )

=\tan\left[\tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{\frac{3}{4}+\frac{2}{3}}{1- \frac{3}{4}.\frac{2}{3}} \right ) \right ] from As, \left [ \tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1}y = \tan^{-1} \frac{x+y}{1- xy} \right ]

=\tan \left (\tan^{-1} \frac{9+8}{12-6} \right ) = \tan \left (\tan^{-1} \frac{17}{6} \right )= \frac{17}{6}

Question:19 \cos^{-1}\left(\cos\frac{7\pi}{6} \right ) is equal to

(A) \frac{7\pi}{6}

(B) \frac{5\pi}{6}

(C) \frac{\pi}{3}

(D) \frac{\pi}{6}


As we know that \cos^{-1} (cos x ) = x if x\epsilon [0,\pi] and is principal value range of \cos^{-1}x .

In this case \cos^{-1}\left(\cos\frac{7\pi}{6} \right ) ,

\frac{7\pi}{6} \notin [0,\pi]

hence we have then,

\cos^{-1}\left(\cos\frac{7\pi}{6} \right ) = \cos^{-1} \left ( \cos \frac{-7\pi}{6} \right ) = \cos^{-1}\left [ \cos\left ( 2\pi - \frac{7\pi}{6} \right ) \right ]

\left [ \because \cos (2\pi + x) = \cos x \right ]

\therefore\ we\ have \cos^{-1}\left ( \cos \frac{7\pi}{6} \right ) = \cos^{-1}\left ( \cos \frac{5\pi}{6} \right ) = \frac{5\pi}{6}

Hence the correct answer is \frac{5\pi}{6} (B).

Question:20 \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{3} -\sin^{-1}\left(-\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ) is equal to

(A) \frac{1}{2}


(C) \frac{1}{4}

(D) 1


Solving the inner bracket of \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{3} -\sin^{-1}\left(-\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ) ;

\left(\frac{\pi}{3} -\sin^{-1}\left(-\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ) or

Take \sin^{-1}\left(-\frac{1}{2} \right ) = x then,

\sin x =-\frac{1}{2} and we know the range of principal value of \sin^{-1}x\ is\ \left [ -\frac{\pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right ].

Therefore we have \sin^{-1}\left ( -\frac{1}{2} \right ) = -\frac{\pi}{6} .

Hence, \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{3} -\sin^{-1}\left(-\frac{1}{2} \right ) \right ) = \sin \left ( \frac{\pi}{3}+ \frac{\pi}{6} \right )= \sin \left ( \frac{3\pi}{6} \right ) = \sin\left ( \frac{\pi}{2} \right ) = 1

Hence the correct answer is D.

Question:21 \tan^{-1}\sqrt3 - \cot^{-1}(-\sqrt3) is equal to

(A) \pi

(B) -\frac{\pi}{2}

(C) 0

(D) 2\sqrt3


We have \tan^{-1}\sqrt3 - \cot^{-1}(-\sqrt3) ;

finding the value of \cot^{-1}(-\sqrt3) :

Assume \cot^{-1}(-\sqrt3) =y then,

\cot y = -\sqrt 3 and the range of the principal value of \cot^{-1} is (0,\pi) .

Hence, principal value is \frac{5\pi}{6}

Therefore \cot^{-1} (-\sqrt3) = \frac {5\pi}{6}

and \tan^{-1} \sqrt3 = \frac{\pi}{3}

so, we have now,

\tan^{-1}\sqrt3 - \cot^{-1}(-\sqrt3)=\frac{\pi}{3} - \frac{5\pi}{6}

= \frac{2\pi - 5\pi}{6} = \frac{-3\pi}{6}

or, = \frac{ -\pi}{2}

Hence the answer is option (B).

Questions related to CBSE Class 12th

Have a question related to CBSE Class 12th ?

Here are some options you can explore to get admission in a good school even though admissions might be closed for many:

  • Waitlist: Many schools maintain waitlists after their initial application rounds close.  If a student who secured a seat decides not to join, the school might reach out to students on the waitlist.  So, even if the application deadline has passed,  it might be worth inquiring with schools you're interested in if they have a waitlist and if they would consider adding you to it.

  • Schools with ongoing admissions: Some schools, due to transfers or other reasons, might still have seats available even after the main admission rush.  Reach out to the schools directly to see if they have any open seats in 10th grade.

  • Consider other good schools: There might be other schools in your area that have a good reputation but weren't on your initial list. Research these schools and see if they have any seats available.

  • Focus on excelling in your current school: If you can't find a new school this year, focus on doing well in your current school. Maintain good grades and get involved in extracurricular activities. This will strengthen your application for next year if you decide to try transferring again.

In India, the design and coding fields offer exciting career options that can leverage your interest in both. Here's how you can navigate this path:

Choosing Your Stream:

  • Graphic Design Focus: Consider a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design or a design diploma. Build a strong portfolio showcasing your creative skills. Learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to understand web development better. Many online resources and bootcamps offer these introductory courses.

  • Coding Focus: Pursue a Computer Science degree or a coding bootcamp in India. These programs are intensive but can equip you with strong coding skills quickly. While building your coding prowess, take online courses in graphic design principles and UI/UX design.

Engineering Subjects (for a Degree):

  • Information Technology (IT): This offers a good mix of web development, networking, and database management, all valuable for web design/development roles.

  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI): This is a specialized field that bridges the gap between design and computer science, focusing on how users interact with technology. It's a perfect choice if you're interested in both aspects.

  • Passing NIOS in October 2024 will make you eligible for NIT admissions in 2025 . NIT admissions are based on your performance in entrance exams like JEE Main, which typically happen in January and April. These exams consider the previous year's Class 12th board results (or equivalent exams like NIOS).

Here's why 2025 is more likely:

  • JEE Main 2024 Admissions: The application process for NITs through JEE Main 2024 is likely complete by now (May 2024). They consider your 2023 Class 12th marks (CBSE in this case).
  • NIOS Results: Since NIOS results typically come out after the NIT admission process, your October 2024 NIOS marks wouldn't be available for JEE Main 2024.

Looking Ahead (2025 Admissions):

  • Focus on JEE Main: Since you have a computer science background, focus on preparing for JEE Main 2025. This exam tests your knowledge in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, crucial for engineering programs at NITs.
  • NIOS Preparation: Utilize the time between now and October 2024 to prepare for your NIOS exams.
  • Eligibility Criteria: Remember, NITs typically require a minimum of 75% marks in Class 12th (or equivalent) for general category students (65% for SC/ST). Ensure you meet this criteria in your NIOS exams.

Yes, scoring above 99.9 percentile in CAT significantly increases your chances of getting a call from IIM Bangalore,  with your academic background. Here's why:

  • High CAT Score: A score exceeding  99.9 percentile is exceptional and puts you amongst the top candidates vying for admission. IIM Bangalore prioritizes  CAT scores heavily in the shortlisting process.

  • Strong Academics: Your 96% in CBSE 12th and a B.Tech degree demonstrate a solid academic foundation, which IIM Bangalore also considers during shortlisting.

However, the shortlisting process is multifaceted:

  • Other Factors: IIM Bangalore considers other factors beyond CAT scores, such as your work experience (if any), XAT score (if you appear for it), academic diversity, gender diversity, and performance in the interview and Written Ability Test (WAT) stages (if shortlisted).

Here's what you can do to strengthen your application:

  • Focus on WAT and PI: If you receive a shortlist, prepare extensively for the Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI). These stages assess your communication, soft skills, leadership potential, and suitability for the program.

  • Work Experience (if applicable): If you have work experience, highlight your achievements and how they align with your chosen IIM Bangalore program.

Overall, with a stellar CAT score and a strong academic background, you have a very good chance of getting a call from IIM Bangalore. But remember to prepare comprehensively for the other stages of the selection process.


Yes you can appear for the compartment paper again since CBSE gives three chances to a candidate to clear his/her exams so you still have two more attempts. However, you can appear for your improvement paper for all subjects but you cannot appear for the ones in which you have failed.

I hope this was helpful!

Good Luck
