LIC ADO recruitment process is divided into two steps Written test and Interview.Candidates successful in written test will be called for Interview.They will be called in order of merit in written test.After Interview candidates have to pass medical test as well.Written test will be online and objective based.Written test will have three papers.

- Numeric Ability – 25 questions with 1 mark each

- English Language & Grammar – 25 questions with 1 mark each
- Insurance Awareness – 50 questions with 1 mark each
The total time will be 120 minutes.Candidates have to clear all the three sections to be eligible for selection in Interview.There is negative marking as well.You need to solve 150 questions in 120 minutes.Since there is sectional cut off it is good to answer at least 13 questions from each section before going to other section.Paper 1 is most time consuming followed by paper 2.To answer maximum number of questions you should focus more on Paper 3. Insurance questions will be theoretical only and will take less time to answer.
If you can finish Insurance Awareness section faster then you can get more time for Paper 1 (reasoning ability and numeric ability) and English section in paper 2.For English section you should focus more on Grammar.As per the advertisement special focus will be on Grammar.Also solving Grammar questions are less time consuming compared to Comprehensive questions.
75 questions are asked from Insurance Awareness and General knowledge out of 150 questions.So 50% of marks focuses on General Awareness and Interview awareness.Rest 50% marks are divided into traditional competitive exams topic like Numeric Ability,Reasoning and English language.So if you are preparing for other exams you do not have to prepare for these topics separately.The complexity of questions is almost the same.
But you need to separately dedicate time for preparation of topics like General Awareness and Insurance questions.Since these topics have more questions you should focus more on them.To clear LIC ADO exam this is the tip.If you have knowledge of these two sections then you can easily get more marks and in less time.This will help you answer more question of other topics.
