Second point

You should carry original id proof and one photocopy of it for written test and Interview.The details you enter in application form should match the details of id proof.If your identification is doubtful then your candidature will be cancelled.

Third Point

Candidates should have valid caste certificate issued in format prescribed by Government of India.OBC candidates who belong to creamy layer should not fill the form as OBC candidate.They should indicate General while filling up the form.If you have caste certificate for IBPS exams then that will be valid for NICL recruitment as well.

Fourth point

You should take a printout of the e-receipt and online Application Form.You should keep them with you.Many candidates forget taking print out of either application or e receipt.

Fifth point

Please double check all the details you are entering while applying.On my IBPS post candidates often have queries that I have entered this detail wrong that detail wrong what to do? This does not help them and they are not able to focus on preparation.So it would be better to double check your application details and then submit.

NICL Administrative officer written exam format

NICL written exams will have separate format for General Administrative officer post and special Administrative officer post.So candidates preparing for exams should really understand the areas to focus on.Also there will be two parts in written test.One part will be objective exams and second part will be descriptive paper.You should prepare for both the sections.

However it is mandatory to clear the objective section before appearing for the descriptive section.Also objective section will carry more marks then descriptive section.So you can divide the time in ratio of 90% and 10% while preparing for these two sections.

General Administrative officer post exam format

  • Reasoning – 40 questions of 1 marks each
  • English – 40 questions of 1 marks each
  • General Awareness – 40 questions of 1 marks each
  • Quantitative Aptitude – 40 questions of 1 marks each
  • Descriptive paper (Essay,Comprehension) – 3 questions of total 40 marks and time 45 minutes

Specialist Administrative officer post exam format

  • Reasoning – 30 questions of 1 marks each
  • English – 30 questions of 1 marks each
  • General Awareness – 30 questions of 1 marks each
  • Quantitative Aptitude – 30 questions of 1 marks each
  • Professional Knowledge – 40 questions of 1 marks each
  • Descriptive paper (Essay,Comprehension) – 3 questions of total 40 marks and time 45 minutes

The total time is 120 minutes for each objective test.The total number of questions are also same (160).So basically a candidate gets less than 1 minute to solve a problem.So in either format speed and accuracy are the keys to success.

NICL Administrative officer preparation tips

If you see the NICL exam format above it is same as that of IBPS bank exams.The sections reasoning,English and Quantitative Aptitude are same.The difference is in General Awareness.IBPS general awareness focuses more on banking industry news and concepts.But NICL does not focus on banking.So your IBPS General Awareness preparation will not help much in NICL exam preparation.

Apart from General Awareness rest of the objective written test sections are same as that of IBPS.It is worth mentioning that IBPS PO exam question standard are same as that of NICL Administrative exam question standard.So in case you are preparing for IBPS PO exams then you do not have to prepare specially for NICL exams.These sections can be prepared together.
