NICL AO exam started on 4th April. Below is the section-wise analysis of the exam till 5th April and you can see the questions asked in GA section at the end of this post. 

Overall, the exam was moderate. A good number of attempts in the exam were  94-103.

Overall Recommendation:

  • Focus on accuracy. Because the paper is moderate, you may be able to do more questions than normal. However, it is more important to get more of them right. In GA only guess if you are at least 50% sure of the answer. Avoid wild guesses. In QA and Reasoning, double check your solutions and be extremely vigilant. Simply by avoiding silly mistakes, you can push your accuracy in these 2 sections above 90%
  • Move on to next question if you are not able to solve/ recall the answer. Do not get stuck with one question. There are a lot of other questions which you can solve and score well. Good luck
