Important Points to Note :

  1. Don't completely depend on Previous Papers. Because in olden days these organizations used to conduct their own exam (off line). But from last year, the IBPS has took up the responsibilities and started conducting online recruitment tests (similar to IBPS PO). So instead of practicing old papers, work with IBPS / SBI PO practice tests. 
  2. As we have mentioned earlier, the difficulty level will be little lower than that of IBPS PO Exam. But that doesn't mean you can easily clear the exam. The vacancies of United India Insurance AO are very low when compared to IBPS or other banking exams. So the cutoffs will be very high. So, inorder to beat these cutoffs, you have to get more than qualifying marks, that means, you have to solve more questions in less time with good accuracy. So practice well.
  3. For professional knowledge section, no need to mugup each and every topic you have in your graduation. Having a brief idea on the topic is enough. 
  4. Negative Marking will be there. So, NO BLIND GUESSING.
  5. Even though the organization didn't mention it, sectional wise cutffos will be there. That means, you have to get qualifying marks in each and every section.
  6. This will be a golden opportunity for those people who couldn't make it in IBPS and SBI PO Online Exams. So, don't neglect. 
  7. The syllabus and exam pattern of New India Assurance Company's AO exam is also more or less similar to United India Insurance Administrative Officers (AO) exam. So, with this preparation, you can appear for both the exams.
