5 Important Changes in LIC AAO 2019

So, we will be discussing the 5 Important changes that we saw in LIC AAO 2019 Notification.

Introduction of Prelims & Mains

It was quite due for LIC AAO. Since, last time there was no Prelims and Mains Examination in LIC AAO. So, this is a new addition to the exam. However, the exam pattern is bit different from previous years.

For eg, the Descriptive part in Mains examination is new in LIC AAO 2019.

 

No English Marks in Prelims

While English has always bothered aspirants in Bank and Insurance exam, many of the aspirants have started to grasp it. However, surprisingly in LIC AAO 2019, the marks of English in LIC AAO Prelims will not be counted. So, basically English will be just qualifying in nature.

What does that mean? It simply means you have to get the minimum qualifying marks in English but your English marks will not be counted for ranking.

Here is what they have mentioned in the notification,

English Language test will be of qualifying nature and the marks in English Language will not be counted for ranking.

Also, the exam pattern of LIC AAO Prelims do not carry the marks of English in Total Marks.

Test Questions Marks Time
English Language 30 30 20 Mins
Quantitative Aptitude 35 35 20 Mins
Reasoning Ability 35 35 20 Mins
Total 100 70 60 Mins

 

No English in Mains

Last time in LIC AAO 2016, the English did not carry any ranking marks which happened to Prelims in LIC AAO 2019. Now, one of the most surprising thing about LIC AAO 2019 Mains Exam is that it does not have English Objective Test at all. So, is this a relief? Well, a lot of aspirants have been working hard in English and now this may backfire for some.

However, they have added English Descriptive in LIC AAO 2019 Mains exam. But that too won’t be used for ranking an applicant.

Here is the LIC AAO 2019 Mains Exam pattern:

S. No. Name of the Test (Objective Tests) No. of Qs. Max. Marks Duration
1 Insurance and Financial Market Awareness 30 60 20 minutes
2 Reasoning Ability 30 90 40 minutes
3 Data Analysis & Interpretation 30 90 20 minutes
  General Knowledge, Current Affairs 30 60 20 minutes
    120 300 2 hours
  English Language (Letter writing & Essay) 2 25 30 Minutes

 

 

Introduction of Insurance and Financial Market Awareness

Perhaps, this was the most shocking thing in LIC AAO 2019 Notification. The introduction of Insurance and Financial Market Awareness is new to all the aspirants. While we have earlier given Insurance Awareness PDF for other Insurance Exams, this will be bit different.

The financial market awareness is same as Banking and Financial Awareness. But the Insurance part needs to be thoroughly studied for LIC AAO 2019.

 

Minimum Qualifying Marks in LIC AAO 2019

We all know that there is sectional cut-off in almost every Bank and Insurance exams. But, LIC AAO 2019 has clearly mentioned Minimum Qualifying Marks for both Prelims and Mains. So, forget about the LIC AAO Cut-off Marks and focus on clearing the minimum qualification marks.

If you are not understanding the concept, you have to score the minimum qualifying marks in order to get ahead. Then your category cut-off will come into play.

Minimum Qualifying Marks in LIC AAO 2019 Prelims

Subject SC/ST Others
Reasoning  16  18
Quantitative Aptitude  16  18
English Language with special emphasis on grammar, vocabulary and comprehension  9  10

 

Minimum Qualifying Marks in LIC AAO 2019 Mains
