sponsored links

Friends, as all of you know the National Insurance Company Ltd (NICL) is going to conduct online Examination for the posts of Administrative Officers (AO) from 4th April 2015. Many of our friends are in confusion on what to prepare and how to prepare for this exam. So, here is an analysis based on last time's NICL AO Exam shared by our friend Dhivya Yuvaraj. Hope these suggestions will help you in getting good marks in upcoming NICL AO Exam 2015. All the Best.

English language
  • Try to cover all the basic grammar topics. Concentrate more on Synonyms and Antonyms. Last time many questions were from synonyms.. nearly 5 or 6 out of 25.. They asked synonym of infamy, cessinate, procrastinate, etc..
  • Then sentence correction were lik 4 to 6.
  • Direct to indirect speech-2qns.
  • Better practice with bank exams' English knowledge papers.  That's enough.
  • It was so easy and I was able to attend all the questions.. Basic reasoning questions and it was very easy. So better focus on reasoning basics. No syllogism or non verbal questions were asked..So maximum chances are there that the paper will be same for this time too.. So don't waste much time in preparing these sections.
General Awareness
  • Last time people expected General Knowledge questions more. But to our surprise most of the questions are from Current Affairs. So focus more on last 6 months' current affairs. Some of the questions I remember from last time's exam are,
    • which state is recently constructing project of uranium
    • which of the following is a private bank (options were lik IDBI,Axis, UCO)
    • which bank has combined with the centurian bank
    • which of the following is the term related with economics (answer was deflation)
    • recently in assam a wire fence was contructed, tis forms as border between  india and which country..?
    • Press freedom day
    • which animal is affected by bird flu
    • world bank recently penalised india, for what reason..?
    • who is the costume designer who got award recently and was in news recently
    • which of the following abbrevation relates to food security (options were ASHA,WTO,etc)
    • gold revolution is associated with which of the following..?
    • where physical olympoid of 2011 held.?
    • the slogan, "applying thoughts" belongs to which company - wipro
Numerical ability
  • Focus on basic maths and simplification. Last time they have asked questions from 
    • Numerical ability (quite easy)
    • basic number system, square root
    • then discount question-1
    •  Mensuration
Computer Awareness
  • Computer literacy was kinda tough..
  • There was no basic questions, they asked questions in deep. So you have to focus more in this section.
Descriptive paper :
  • Comprehension was about manual scavengers.
  • Essay topics were, the changes mobile phones have made in communication and the privatizing insurance companies
  • The precis writing was about Indian theaters
There had been ample of time.. and no time management was needed in it.. So all that you have to do is stay cool and be focused. You surely will get good marks.Please share your views below at comments section. All the Best.
