LIC AAO Exam Strategy: Last Minute Tips

LIC AAO Exam is going to be conducted on this weekend (Sat/Sun) and the next weekend and Lacs of aspirants will be competing for 750 post in India's Largest Insurance Company.

LIC AAO exam will be of 2 Hrs duration and structure of the exam will be as follows -


Section

Number of Questions
Marks

Reasoning Ability
30
90
2
Numerical Ability

60
4
Computer Knowledge
30
60
5

40
00

Total
160
300


It should be kept in mind that there will be negative marking in this exam - i.e. while each correct answer will fetch you 1 mark, 1/4 marks will be deducted for each wrong answer. Also, LIC has recently notified that the 5th section in above scheme (English Language) will be of qualifying nature and its marks will not be counted in the overall score/ranking of the candidate.


LIC AAO Exam Strategy:

Keeping in mind the tough competition, candidates should ensure that they go to the exam hall with full preparation and should avoid the slightest mistake in the exam. Essentially, candidates should keep in mind the following, while attempting the exam - 





1. Go with a Plan: Candidates should go with proper plan - as in which section to attempt first and which section to attempt last and how much time should one devote on each section. It is very important that candidate stick to their plan (time wise) i.e. if you had decided that you will give 40 minutes to Reasoning section, you should stick to it. Reason for the same is - sometimes a particular section may be very difficult, and while attempting the same you may get carried away by devoting more time on that, it will mean that you will compromise on some other section by giving it a lesser time. You need to remember that there is a sectional cut-off in the exam and if a particular section is tough, it will be tough for everyone and hence cut-off for that section will be low.


2. Sectional Cut-off: Please note that this exam will have sectional cut-offs, as decided by the LIC. So, you have to ensure that you get atleast qualifying marks in each section. To be on safer side you should try to get atleast 50% marks in each section.

3. English is only Qualifying: Please note that do not waste too much time on English Section, since it is qualifying only. Even if you are good at English and can attempt more, still do not waste time on this. If you can attempt 20 questions with good accuracy, it should be sufficient to qualify you in this section.

4. Attempt Paper in 2 Rounds: You should attempt each section in 2 rounds. While attempting each section - first do the questions, for which you are sure and which can be done in less than a minute. Leave tougher questions for the second round. This way will be not miss any easy question in the paper and will be able to optimize the score.

5. Start with Easier Section: Suppose, you are more comfortable in a particular section, attempt is first. It will give you the confidence and set the pace for the exam. Attempt most difficult part in the end.

6. Do not get stuck on a Question: Never get touchy about any question and hence do not waste time if you are not able to crack it within 1-2 mins. We have seen, many candidates get stuck with questions like seating arrangement/puzzles in reasoning part and precious time on these. Never do that. If you feel that you might get stuck, leave it for second round.

7. Never give up during exam: Competitions like this are the tests of your nerves. You should go with a positive frame of mind to the exam hall and maintain the same throughout the exam. Many times, when candidates get stuck or find a particular section difficult, they give up. Never ever give up. Paper is not going to be easy for anyone and winner will be one who will hold the nerves till the end.

8. Take proper sleep: Candidates should take a proper sleep before the exam day and should have light breakfast before the exam.

Bank Power wishes you all the best. Good Luck! God Speed!

Dear ADO job is most pathetic PSU job.
Even u cant compare it with bank job.
Isse accha toh private hi karlo, kamse kum salary to acchi milti hai private main.
Job kya hai agent recruit karo bas business badao.
Agar yeh kaam icici prudential main karoge to abt 50-60 thousand monthly milega.
Agar govt job karni hai to bas administrative officer ki he best hai.
Kyonki woh office ki job hai.

Manish said...

Actually Mr Singh,
Your heart already love this clerk job. You don't need to ask anyone. You just confirm what you did. Nothing is bad and good. Do what you like. Because no one knows you better that you.

Manish said...

Does it matter?
