NICL Administrative Officers (AOs) Exam Syllabus


sponsored links

Extremely sorry for the late update guys, we have been thinking whether to update it or not because there is no clarity from the organization about the syllabus. But we came to know that some of our friends have been blindly following the syllabus of banking exams to prepare for NICL. But unfortunately the question pattern (especially of General Awareness) is totally different from banks.  So by keeping the NICL Assistants exam which was held on 14th and 21st July 2013 we made this syllabus. We hope this will be helpful for you in your preparation.


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.
  • Ranking
  • Classification / Odd man Out
  • Directions & Distance
  • Seating Arrangement
  • Mathematical Operations
  • Statements and Conclusions
  • Blood Relations
  • Data Sufficiency
  • Syllogism
  • Series Completion
  • Analogy
  • Classification
  • Coding-Decoding
  • 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. 

English Language :
There are two sections in English. Objective and Descriptive.
for objective english you should prepare
  • Basic Grammar & Vocabulary 
  • Sentence Completion
  • Sentence Correction
  • Word Replacement
  • Fill in the Blanks
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Sentence Rearrangement

for Descriptive you should prepare
  • Essay writing
  • Precis writing and 
  • Comprehension Writing.
Below are the materials for Descriptive writing which we have earlier posted for SBI PO Exam. Hope these will helpful for you in your preparation.

Descriptive Paper Study Material:

  • Precis Writing Tips
  1.  Introduction
  2. How to write Good Precis for SBI PO Exams ?
  3. Approach to Precis Writing
  4. Important Techniques to Compress the given data for Precis Writing  
  5. Precis Writing Examples 
Note : For Specialist Officers posts inadition to the above mentioned topics you also should prepare your graduation subjects (technical& professional knowledge in the relevant discipline).

  8. Friends, a small suggestion to all those who are going to write this exam...For GK Section,go through Lucent GK book at least once + current affairs + insurance/banking knowledge.For NICL Assistants exam,there were no Current Affairs as well as Banking Knowledge.We cannot say it will be like this or will have banking go prepared...All the best !!

  9. Friends,I am one of the candidates who wrote NICL Assistants exam.There were not even a single question from current affairs or banking knowledge.To be in a safer side,go through Lucent's GK book or any such book at least once and also current affairs+banking knowledge...we cannot predict anything...All the best !!

  10. To all those who are going for IB exam...there is no specific syllabus for IB exam.The question paper has 100 MCQs + a descriptive section.These 100 MCQs has reasoning,maths & GK....There is NO SECTION WISE QUESTIONS(TILL THE LAST TIME)....They use to change the question pattern also.Only thing is that GK will be more (about 60 to 70%).Also for descriptive they can ask anything like letter or precis along with Essay !!
