Syllabus of National Insurance Company AOs (Administrative Officers) Exam 2013
The exam is for two categories. Generalist and Specialist. For Reasoning, Numerical Ability, General Awareness and Computer Literacy the syllabus will be same. In addition to that for Specialists you should prepare your core subjects (depends on the post which you have applied for). Here is the sectional wise syllabus.
Test of Reasoning : This section will be similar to any bank po exam. Our reasoning material is more than enough to clear this section. In clerical exam they have focused on Analogy, Coding, Series etc. Concentrate on following areas.
- Classification / Odd man Out
- Directions & Distance
- Seating Arrangement
- Mathematical Operations
- Statements and Conclusions
- Blood Relations
- Data Sufficiency
- Series Completion
- Non Verbal Reasoning
Numerical Ability : Last time (for clerical exam) they have followed the similar strategy of SSC CGL Exam. They have asked questions from Data Interpretation (Pie Chart, Line Graphs), Mensuration (areas and volumes), Trigonometry, Trains, Speed and Distances, Algebra, Partnerships etc.
Computer Literacy : This section will be of PO level. You should get good knowledge on computer basics. Read our Computer Knowledge material from here
General Awareness : This was the heart breaking section for NICL Clerks exam. People have expected questions from Current Affairs but they have asked questions from General Knowledge. So you should prepare basic topics of Geography, History, Polity , Economy and General Science (Physics and Chemistry). And guys please don't neglect Current Affairs as the exam is totally unpredictable.
