    LIC AAO Recruitment 2017: Is it Real or Fake News?

    The internet is abuzz with news of LIC AAO recruitment 2017 but with no official notification released yet – is it true or fake? Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) is India`s largest public sector life insurance provider & carries a high brand value among the public.It is one of the main reason why recruitments for jobs in LIC usually gets enormous number of application from candidates.


    Life Insurance Corporation of India conducts recruitments for various positions every year.Among them, AAO (Assistant Administrative Officer) & AO (Administrative Officer) are two posts that are hugely expected by those seeking govt jobs.

    For the past few days, many websites are reporting about an upcoming LIC recruitment for 650 AAO posts.They also mention that the registrations shall begin in the 1st week of December 2016.


    According to Indian Express website - out of 650 openings, the selections are to be held for generalist cadre with the below category-wise vacancies:


    All other websites started posting about the recruitment based on this article in indianexpress.com, which pushed individuals to start searching for the real notice.


    *December 5 Update*: The LIC AAO recruitment news article posted on Indianexpress website (see screenshot below) is removed & not accesible for viewing.




    But, there is NO OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION about AAO recruitment on LIC website till we published this article on November 30th.


    LIC Recruitment 2017: Is it True?

    Previously, LIC had conducted AAO recruitment in December 2015 to fill 700 vacancies. The online written exams were held during the month of March & final results were declared only in September 2016.


    Candidates selected through LIC AAO recruitment 2016 are undergoing training at various centres from October 2016.


    While the previous batch is still under training phase, will LIC come up with another round of selections so fast? is a question in the minds of some candidates.Hence they are terming the LIC AAO recruitment 2017 news as false/ fake & rumour.


    Even LIC employees we spoke to are not confirming about such a recruitment.Moreover, the govt`s employment news website that displays upcoming recruitments or the official LIC website does not carry any notice about AAO recruitment.


    Be Patient & Wait: Recruitments in public sector companies come dont follow a proper timeline & come out suddenly.


    So with no proper information available about LIC AAO recruitment 2017, we suggest all candidates to stay patient & wait for official announcement on LIC`s webpage.


    If any notification is uploaded in the coming days, we shall inform about it here on BankExamsIndia.com

    • Series (Number/ Alphabetical)
    • Puzzles
    • Direction Sense

    We were told that reasoning part was easy too & all those who have prepared well could complete it in 15 – 20 minutes.

    IBPS Clerk Expected Cutoffs

    What will be the cutoffs of IBPS clerk prelims 2016 exam could be the next big thought in all your minds now.


    The cutoffs would be fixed state-wise since the clerk vacancies differ for each state.So depending on the number of jobs allotted for a particular state, the qualifying marks will change.


    Total Cutoffs: Going by that logic, the ibps clerk prelims 2016 expected cutoffs could be in the range of 42 – 50 for general category & for other categories (OBC/SC/ST) it could be slightly lower than this figure.


    Few prominent states such as Gujarat, Tamilnadu etc., may have cutoffs ranging between 31 – 38 because Total vacancies in a particular state, Number of applicants from that state & their performance will determine the pass marks.


    Sectional Cutoffs: Candidates must pass in each section by scoring the individual cutoff scores fixed by IBPS.Based on your feedback, we feel the sectional cutoffs might be:

    • English: 7 – 9
    • Reasoning: 8 - 12
    • Numerical Ability: 5 – 8

    IBPS PO Mains 2016: Exam Review & Expected Cutoffs [Easy or Tough]

    IBPS PO Main exam 2015 review,How was IBPS PO Mains 2015,IBPS POP Main Exam 2015The most expected IBPS PO Main Exam 2016 is over, which is part of the recruitment of officers in public sector banks.A preliminary exam was conducted earlier & only those who qualified in it were eligible to appear for this written test held on November 20.Many of those who have taken part in this exam have termed it as tough & difficult.Read on to know more about the IBPS PO main exam review in detail.


    For the first time, aspirants appeared for PO main exam that had time limits on each section, that was recently introduced by IBPS (prelims results were out in Oct)


    Everyone were of the view that the difficulty level of IBPS PO mains would be similar to SBI PO mains, which was true to some extent.


    IBPS PO Mains Review: Reasoning & Quants were Tough

    The online test consisted of 5 sections with 200 questions in total.Since each section had time limits, candidates were under a sense of pressure throughout the exam duration.

    General awareness was the only section that was quickly answerable whereas 90% of the questions in IBPS PO mains ranged between moderate to difficult.

    Computer knowledge paper was difficult for some shifts, we were told.This again, was unexpected wh chidisappointed many candidates as it is a easy scoring section normally.


    ibps po main exam reviewFrustration Starts: Reasoning & Quantitative aptitude could have never been tougher than this - is the general opinion of all candidates.


    The kind of pattern may not have even been thought about in dreams.


    IBPS has now set a new benchmark for mains exam by omitting some common topics.It looks they purposefully set such a high level paper every year due to less vacancies & increasing competition for bank jobs.


    Candidates had to spend more time on questions they were not good at, which itself created a feeling of failure.

    Puzzles, Input/Output, Arguments, Direction questions were like waging a war due to its toughness.

    A majority of them were able to attend only 8 – 15 questions in each of these two sections which had a total of 100.This itself speaks about the difficulty level.


    Low Cutoffs Possible But…

    Having looked at the performance, there is a talk about the possibility of low cutoffs because the exam was considered to be tough.

    • But not all the sections were difficult.
    • Most candidates have performed really well in GK & Computers.
    • Some have managed to attempt nearly 22 – 30 questions in reasoning & aptitude with 100% accuracy.

    So the individual cutoff for reasoning & aptitude may go low whereas the total cutoff score need not be necessarily lower.


    Calculating Cutoff Scores: IBPS uses normalization method to convert your actual marks into scores and nobody knows that formula.


    But the difficulty level will taken into consideration along with the no. of vacancies this year while declaring the qualifying scores.If they also choose accuracy as a factor to determine the total cutoff, low scores may not be possible.


    Here is the IBPS PO Mains 2016 expected cutoffs:;

    Reasoning: 7 - 9

    English : 8 - 10

    Quantitative Aptitude: 9 - 11

    General Awareness: 12 - 15

    Computer Knowledge: 9 - 12


    Cutoffs on total scores: Based on the level of questions & candidates feedback, we expect the total cutoffs might be in the following ranges.


    General: 65 - 70

    OBC: 62 - 67

    SC: 41 - 46

    ST: 38 - 45


    As per estimates, atleast 1.8 lakh candidates may have appeared for main exam among which IBPS needs to shortlist only 26,000 – 30,000 candidates for interviews (ratio of 1:3).


    Hence the candidates who have performed well with good no. of attempts can easily get in.
