Examination Pattern

Selection of Assistant Administrative Officers in LIC will be done through a three-tiered process and subsequent Pre-recruitment Medical examination.
  • Online Preliminary Exam
  • Online Main Exam
  • Interview

Stage I: Online Preliminary Exam

A preliminary Examination consisting of an objective test will be conducted online. The test will have three sections (with separate timings for each section) as follows:
  • The Preliminary examination will be the first stage of the selection process and is qualifying in nature. It is conducted in Computer Based Test mode.
  • Candidates will have to pass each of the objective tests of the online examinations.
  • Questions from three subjects, namely i.e., English language, Reasoning Ability, and Quantitative aptitude will be asked at this stage.
  • All the subjects of the preliminary examination will account for 100 marks with sectional timing of 20 minutes for each subject.
  • As per the marking scheme, 1 mark will be provided for every correct answer while there will be a deduction of 0.25 marks for each wrong answer marked by the candidate.
S.No. Name of test No. of questions Maximum marks Minimum Qualifying marks Duration

  Total 100 70**     60 minutes
** English Language test will be of qualifying nature and the marks in the English Language will not be counted for ranking.
Stage II: Online Main Exam
  • The main examination will consist of objective tests for 300 marks and descriptive tests for 25 marks.
  • Both the objective and descriptive tests will be online.
  • The objective test will have separate timing for every section.
  • Candidates will have to answer descriptive tests by typing on the computer.
  • A descriptive test will be administered immediately after the completion of the objective test.

  Total 120 300     2 Hours
  English Language (Letter Writing & Essay) 2
25** 9 10 30 minutes

**Kindly note that the descriptive test will be of qualifying nature and the marks will not be counted for ranking. Also, the Descriptive paper of only those candidates will be evaluated who qualify in the objective part of the main Examination.

Marks obtained in the Main Examination only will be considered for shortlisting for interview and marks obtained in Main Examination + marks obtained in the Interview will be considered for the final merit listing of candidates.

English Language (Letter Writing & Essay)

This is a part of the main examination and it is the easiest part of the LIC AAO exam. You are required to choose and write an Essay and a Letter out of the given topics. The total time allotted for the descriptive part is 30 minutes. Scoring well in this section can be a cakewalk for you if you are aware of the latest happenings in and around the world and have a good knowledge of the format for formal/informal letter writing.


An interview is the last stage of the LIC AAO examination. Candidates who clear the written examinations will be called for the interview round. This round is a very important part of the selection process.

In this round, the officials will try to check your knowledge, opinions, communication skills, and your fitness for the job. This is also the scoring part of the examination process and the marks obtained in this round are added to the final merit.

If you have successfully cleared the written exam and the document verification process, you will be appointed to the post of Assistant Administrative Officer (Generalist).

Qualifying Marks

As you all know the cut-off for LIC AAO 2024 prelims has already been decided. Unreserved category students have to score 18 in the Quantitative Aptitude & Reasoning Section and 10 marks in English.  However, the English Language section of LIC AAO 2024 prelims will be of qualifying nature and the marks in the English Language will not be counted for ranking. So, here is a huge advantage for the candidates who are not very good at English. But,  you will have to practice hard to score well in the Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning Ability section to qualify for the mains.

So, the key to all of the preparation, though, is understanding how to approach this exam. Once you know that, the rest of it doesn’t seem nearly as terrifying. Smartkeeda always tries to provide our students with quality content at the least possible price so that the students do not take studying as a financial burden.
