Difficulty Level of AFCAT 2 2013 Questions
    afcat 2 2013 cut off
  • General Awareness: This section was average if we compare it with last AFCAT. Though, most of the questions were from GK and General Science.
  • Verbal Ability in English: This section was slightly tougher than other sections, the level of questions came from Comprehension, Error Detection, Sentence Completion, Synonyms, Antonyms and Testing of Vocabulary were tough. We would say that IAF is keeping English level really high for aspirants, even higher than what comes in CDSE.
  • Numerical Ability: In this section, questions were mostly from percentage and profit/ loss. Overall, this section was easy and not that hard. Most of the questions were similar like we have seen earlier.
  • Reasoning and Military Aptitude Test: This section was the easiest among all. Though, reasoning section was with average difficulty level. One must get maximum marks out of this section. 

AFCAT 2 2013 Expected Cut off

Seeing the trend of AFCAT cut off marks, we don’t think there will be higher variation in AFCAT 2 2013 cut off mark.
  • AFCAT 1 2012 cut off: 135
  • AFCAT 2 2012 cut off: 143
  • AFCAT 1 2013 cut off: 144
  • AFCAT 2 2013 cut off: 110- 130
In short is you have done at least 35-45 correct questions ( Zero wrong), then you would have higher chances of clearing AFCAT 2 2013. 
Let’s hope for the best, hope our AFCAT preparation tips worked well for you. If you have any concern related to AFCAT 2 2013 cut off marks, do post it in the comment section below.

      bhai, GK hi toh difficult tha!

  • Abhishek

    I think relatively compared to previous year papers, this was the toughest of the lot. English was tricky and GK wasn’t easy too. Rest were fine. Any idea as to when result could be declared ??

  • harsha

    what was the answer of boys to girls ratio question

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      1:5

      • Ankit

        correct

        • harry

          the answer to tables and chair was none of these … ratio of chairs to tables was asked it was 5:1 so none of these is correct

          • Abhishek Gupta

            the ratio of chair and table was asked…not ratio of chair to the table..so i think 1:5 would be right one…

          • vinee

            totally agree with u abhishek

          • Ashirbad Nayak

            bro, they asked for tables to chair, not too sure though.

          • Praveen Kumar

            it was asked chairs:tables

          • Ashirbad Nayak

            aao k, time to reduce 4 marks from my expected total then :(

          • vinee

            no dy asked chairs and tables… dam sure…

      • ANUJ Tiwari

        1:5 was the answer to the table chair question. boys girls question’s answer was none of these.

        • Ashirbad Nayak

          right man, the ratio came out to be 8:11 .

      • Urvashi Chaudhuri

        for the table and chair ques 5:1 and not 1:5 because it asked chairs:table and not vice versa. so the answer would be none of these. and for boys and girls also it should be none of these.

        • Ashirbad Nayak

          umm, i went over the question thrice to make sure and i think it was tables:chair. Too bad if i got it wrong :(

  • harsha

    paper was tough:-(

  • Shivam Kumar

    PAPER WAS LITTLE BIT TOUGHER THAN 01/13. CAN ANY ONE TELL THE SANIA MIRJA HAS PLAYED 21ST COMMON WEALTH GAMES. I THINK DATE HAS NOT BEEN DECIDED FOR THE 21ST GAME…THE QUESTION WAS WRONG.

    • kalyan

      i guess answer was none :)

      • Shivam Kumar

        question was wrong, so every one will get marks for that question…..
        just chill…..

    • happy

      this question was correct that’s why they putted 21th not 18 or 20 near to 19 , sania madam got silver medal in 19th CWG …thats why answer is none.

    • shashank

      i think silver was there in the options

  • Shivam Kumar

    ONE QUES FROM MATH WAS ALSO WRONG…
    A NUMBER HAS BEEN INCREASED BY 20% THAN BY WHAT% THE INCREASED NUMBER TO BE REDUCED TO GET THE ORIGINAL ONE…
    THE ANSWER SHOULD BE 16.66%,HOWEVER THERE WERE NO SUCH CHOICES GIVEN?
    PLEASE CORRECT ME, IF I AM WRONG

    • Jaideep Singh

      i agree…

    • Chirag Jain

      absolutely correct…answer must be (2/12)*100 i.e. 16.67%

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      think they typed the question wrong. I think they meant that the no. was increased by 20% and then again by 20% before being reduced

      • shashank

        some people on this page say that the question said “the no. was increased 20% TWICE ” … now , i din’t happen to find TWICE writen anywhere ..is this an Affirmative ?

    • Sonu Prasad

      let the no. be 100 after 20% increase it will become 120 and again after increasing it will become 144 so answer is 44 144-100=44

      • Sai Sandeep G

        @sonuprasad:disqus it was asked how much the number to be ” orginal value
        reduced” to get the

        • Sonu Prasad

          original value was 100 assumed

    • Kapil Ranga

      you are absolutely right and the nearest option was 19.35% and i felt the examiner was immature one he was concntrating on calculations rather than concept and yess no doubt they hav increased the level of afcat..dnt wether they want scientists at ol level…like which anhydride in unknown till date…… wtf

    • Nikita Singh

      Yes this question was wrong, I solved it many times but couldn’t find the answer in the options..I wasted around 10 mins on the question, which was obviously useless >:(

      • Alok Dutta

        u sud nevr waste 10 min on a single questn….

    • sangeetha

      hey the question was right.. let the no be 100… 20% increase twice means 120..144…. to convert back its (144-100)/144 percentage =30.56% which was one of the options

      • shashank

        how to we get 144 ?? …. 20% increase makes it 120 and now we had to reduce 120 by some percent so that it amounts to 100 again …where does 144 comes in picture ?

        • Shivam Kumar

          sahi hai shashank bhai!!!!
          answer should be 50/3 percent

        • sangeetha

          because the question was the “number was increased by 20% TWICE”

          • shashank

            sangeetha ,m pretty sure that the question said the number was to be reduced by some percentage to get the original number back after increasing it by 20% just once..if it said the number increased twice than your answer is correct otherwise the answer will be 16.66%

          • sangeetha

            but im sure the question was increase by 20% twice… even i missed that when i read it for the first time but then when i rechecked it i saw..

          • shashank

            u should check the AFCAT 2/2013 question paper …u will find the questions and this question in particular… the question never used the word twice .. “a number is increased by 20 % and again reduced to bring back the number its original value .By how much percent the number was reduced to obtain the original number ? ” ..this is the language they used

          • sangeetha

            is the original afcat paper out? :O could u put the link?

          • shashank

            no not the original paper …people have posted thew questions they remember ..u can google it …i don’t have the link ..i also googled it

          • sangeetha

            hmm… k

    • shashank

      16.66 roger that ..!! .. unfortunately ,i had to leave it unfilled .. most of my friends opted for the nearest value to 16.66 i.e 19 ..

  • Nidhi Agarwal

    what was the answer for electron affinity question…?
    is it Strong reducing agent?

    • Muskan Sharma

      strong oxidising agent

  • Shivam Kumar

    HIGHER ELECTRON AFFINITY, LESS OXIDISED . SO THE ANSWER SHOULD BE LESS OXIDISED

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      but they act as strong oxidising agents as they increase the charge on the ions they react with

      • shashank

        true .. they act as strong oxidisers

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      just use the relation of A^2 – B^2= (A-B)(A+B). The answer is 1

    • varun t

      thats 1..!!

  • Yogesh Rajanandam

    questions were similar type from last year. like sports award question, human brain, virus, geographical lines, and even last time in numerical ability questions were maximum from ratios and %ages, similar to this time. English was asusual tougher. a 2-3 week’s preparation can get u score more than 60 correct answers.

  • Jaideep Singh

    1 to pehle hi g**d fat gai h paper de ke… phir bolte ho cut off will be higher than last exam… BACHE KI JAAN LOGE KYA??

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      bhai, every successive batch outperforms the previous batch and unless the paper isn’t too difficult, the cut-offs would only increase. Expect 150-155 to be the range.

      • happy

        accha ji 150 -160 agar ah gayo nah cutt off toh kamal ho jayega abhi tune answer nai dekhe lagta hai sab ques ke

        • Ashirbad Nayak

          150 for sure brother, maths and military aptitude were very easy and that will shoot the scores

          • abhishek

            hey buddy u never get more than 100-120 so stop all ds ,n no need to post any comment until u dont know some thng …………dufr

          • abhishek

            cut off should never shoot more than 130-135……..sure

          • Ashirbad Nayak

    • Muskan Sharma

      vasco de gama

  • Ashirbad Nayak

    I dont see the cut-offs getting lower than AFCAT 1.

  • Aditya Pillai

    The paper was tough.
    And the question asked the ratio of chairs to table.
    And yes, the answer should be 16.6%.
    I expect the cutoff to be around 145.
    The results will b announced within 30 days from the written exam.
    Wishing all the candidates best of luck.

  • Neha

    which one ws odd… autocracy bureaucracy democracy diplomacy?

    • Arun Vaswani

      Diplomacy as all the others r related with government

      • Robin Marcus D’Souza

        i think autocracy was the odd one..coz all the other three are done by a group and autocracy is a single person’s rule..so i think it to be the odd one out..

    • sk

      diplomacy is the right answer & others r forms of govt.

  • Neha

    “LAPROSCOPY” how many wrds cud be made ?

    • happy

      Laparoscopy is the word and the question was how many letters u can change without effecting the word.
      answer:- three

    • Muskan Sharma

      the q. was that how many words could be made without changing the order of the letters. I marked 3 i.e. lap, copy, scopy.

      • Aman Sd

        I marked ‘Four’
        1. LAPAROSCOPY is a word itself
        2. LAP
        3. PAR
        4. COPY

        • Gaj Singh Rathore

          lap,cop,copy and par

          • Guest

            add ‘pro’ and we’ve 5.

          • Gaj Singh Rathore

            Pro is not afull word its a short form of professional!! cop is a meaningful word

        • Jaya Vamsi Tanakala

          a itself is also a word that makes it plus 1 count for 5

      • Ashirbad Nayak

        What does scopy mean?

        • Muskan Sharma

          process of visualising with an endoscope is called scopy

          • Ashirbad Nayak

            So,we’ve lap,pro,scopy,cop, copy, thats 5!

      • Alok Dutta

        dere is one more word “cop”

    GK was tough. Reasoning and English was easy. Not concerned about maths, only bothered to attempt 3 questions. Overall, I think my fate is sealed.

    • Aman Sd

    • Ashirbad Nayak

      you should be safe brother.

  • AFCAT XAM

    please post about non verbal reasoning questions asked in xam like a dark Point and Hollow point placed on the corners of lines separated by 45 degree angle….what will be correct answer..

    • AFCAT XAM

      I think 5th was correct

  • AFCAT XAM

    ALL OPTIONS WERE WRONG BUT FIRST ONE i.e. 19.67 will be most correct

    • Guest

      I think 5th was correct

    • Nikita Singh

      The question is- Why is it so, that we get to see such blunders in exams we don’t expect can have even a small mistake? This wasn’t expected out of these people. I simply left out the question thinking I might be wrong just because of the belief I had that the paper can’t have any mistakes as it might be published by some esteemed people. And something that’s wrong is entirely wrong. What’s the point of attempting a question that has all wrong options? Carelessness shouldn’t be forbidden on either side. If we are being careful enough in choosing the right answer then these people also got to be pretty careful while making the paper.

      • sangeetha

        hey the question wasn’t wrong… the answer was 30.56% and it was one of the options.. so chill. :/

        • Amlan Kumar Nath

          Please explain the procedure.

          • Ashirbad Nayak

            increase the no. by 20% successively and then reduce it.

          • sangeetha

            the question clearly said “the number was increased by 20% TWICE” which means 1.2*1.2x=1.44x…. to bring it back to x we have (1.44x-x)/1.44 *100%= 30.56% which was one of the options. even i didnt see the “twice” in the beginning but while i was rechecking i found that…

        • AFCAT XAM

          bakwas

      • shashank

        i know the pain :/ .. similar mistake was there in GK part … Sania Mirza won a silver in CWG but it was nowhere in the option

  • AFCAT XAM
