So, here is the strategy for LIC HFL Assistant and Assistant Manager Examination being provided by bankersadda to help you perform to the best of your ability in the examination.

If we talk about the banking examinations, the pattern of this year's examinations has shown drastic variations when compared to the previous year examinations. The questions being asked are getting more and more complex and convoluted this year. The Online Written Examination for the post of Assistant Managers and Assistants will be held on 10th October 2017 (Tentative) and 12th October 2017 (Tentative) respectively and the Interview will be held post declaration of Online Written Examination. So, all that you need to do to bring the house down is to practice strenuously. Everyone has only 24 hours in a day, what makes the difference is how he/she utilizes these hours. If you really wish to crack the examination, you need to dedicate most of your everyday hours to studies only, as its the high time to start off with your preparations. Hardly 25 days are left for your preparations, jump on the bandwagon and hit while the iron is hot.

And here is the pattern of Online Written Examination:

S. No. Section No. of questions Max. Marks Duration
1. Reasoning Ability 50 50 35 minutes
2. English Language 50 50 35 minutes
3. General Awareness 50 50 15 minutes
4. Numerical Ability 50 50 35 minutes
Total (Aggregate) 200 200 120 minutes

Prepare a study plan. Such a timetable would assist you in completing the target syllabus on time. Organize all the things you have to do and fix your timetable around it. Making a time table inculcates a sense of discipline; the aspirant is bound to give a certain amount of time to a particular subject or topic. Once you are done with the topics in advance, you get enough of extra hours to revise everything that you have already done. Regular studies reduce the level of stress, as the number of topics to be done does not accumulate into blizzards, hence provide the aspirant with a better physical and mental health. If you do not revise the topics that you studied months back, you end up remembering nothing at all.

Do remember that you need to assess your progress from time to time. Practicing with test series helps you ace the original tests/examinations. You can identify what topics you are good at and where you lack. That way, in the original examination, you will choose to attempt the very section first that you are very good, or say fast at.

Quantitative Aptitude

The trick to scoring marks in Quantitative Aptitude Section is to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations, Simplification and Approximation first and then going for Number Series. After having attempted all these questions efficiently, go for Data Interpretation. In every DI 3 questions are always doable and the rest two are a bit tricky and calculative. The remaining few questions will be based on miscellaneous topics like CI & SI, Time and Work, Pipes and Cisterns, Partnership, etc. Practice continuously, it will pay big time.

Reasoning Ability

The trick to attempt the maximum number of questions in Reasoning Section in minimum time is to attempt the difficult puzzles in the end. Start with the questions that are not in the form of puzzles, you can choose to start with questions based on inequalities, direction and distance, syllogism, coding decoding, alpha numeric series, and other random topics. Then try to start with puzzles that appear easy to be solved and proceed with moderate and difficult puzzles in a similar way. So, this is how you have to manage to attempt this section.

English Language

The trick to scoring in English section can vary from one person to another depending on his/her strengths and weaknesses. If you are good at vocab and reading then attempt the reading comprehension first and proceed with Cloze Test and other miscellaneous topics like Error Detection, Para Jumbles, Phrase Replacement, Double Fillers, etc. But if you are good at grammar, attempt Reading Comprehension in the end. The Reading comprehension too should be attempted in a way that you attempt questions based on vocab and phrases first and then the questions that need a deep penetration through the paragraphs. The important topics for cloze test are subject verb agreement, preposition and verbs. These topics may help you some other questions too that will be based on grammar. So make sure that you have these topics on your finger tips when you are to attempt the examination.

Banking awareness

So much is happening every day that unless you keep yourself abreast of these changes you cannot adjust yourself to them or tackle the GA section of any exam smoothly and easily. A busy person hardly gets the time to read everything that it contains. This is why, to save your precious time, we provide you with an alternative that is our “Daily GK Update” (Available in both Hindi and English languages) that contains only the news that is important from the point of view of competitive examinations.
