LIC AAO 2023 tips smartkeeda

See, we have less than 1 month for LIC AAO 2023 and we need to cover three sections quantitative aptitude, Reasoning, and English. If you’ve been going to class and if you’ve been keeping on top of things this really doesn’t take very long at all. Preparing for LIC AAO 2023 should, ideally, be a giant review session, not a time when you actually learn anything for the first time. Of course, that’s never actually the case but as close as you can get is great.

As you all know the cut-off for LIC AAO 2023 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 2023 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 feel study, a financial burden.  We at Smartkeeda constantly spend hours to save you seconds in your exams.

3. Compare yourself with Topper

 Yes! Exactly Comparison, It’s a very negative word these days, you have heard from a lot of people that don’t compare yourself with others but if you are in the competition fields you will have to compare otherwise you can’t figure out how much competition is in the market. The LIC AAO 2023 test series at Smartkeeda would help you understand the strategy followed by the topper to become one.

You should dive into the following areas after attempting a LIC AAO mock test to understand the approach followed by him/her:
  • How many questions were correctly attempted by the topper?
  • What type of questions were skipped by the topper?
  • How much time was spent by the topper on the difficult questions?
  • What was the accuracy of the topper in each section?
  • How did the topper manage his time in each section to maximize his attempts?
An answer to the above question will help you understand the loopholes in your preparation. An effort to imitate the topper’s strategy for LIC AAO 2023 exam would help you build an effective roadmap to success.

4. Make a list of important things you need to get done

 Yes, absolutely right! Only important things. We don’t have enough time to practice each and everything. Go through LIC AAO 2023 syllabus and make a list of those topics where you are good at and set the priority according to the preparation or your mock test result.
Once you make that list, make a folder on your computer and just bring everything you need into that folder.
This would help you because it would put your mind at ease. If you have a list of everything which you need to get done, you can rest easy knowing exactly what is important for you. This helps lower your exam-related anxiety while studying and also during the test. If you know that all the material was on that list and that you can give competition to other aspirants, you have to stick to those topics and practice as hard as you can.

5. Cut your preparation into parts

 To tackle the big goal of the full-length test while you’re preparing for LIC AAO 2023, I would highly recommend you to cut your preparation into parts, do not try to cover all the topics together and take a full-length mock test.
  • First, you need to take quizzes regarding your section or topics. Quizzes are small goals, and they can make you feel positive which through you can cover big goals in small steps.
  • Next, attempt the Full-length assessment for LIC AAO 2023 and analyze it. After analyzing the complete test, flag your weak spots and the topics where you need to put more effort to maximize your score from the ‘Topic Strength’ section.
  • Further, move on to the Topic tests and practice & strengthen the topics where your topic strength is Average-Poor
