      Hi Darshni. LIC is the best place to work for females. They have employee friendly policies. To further alleviate your concerns, my mother is in LIC from last 19 years. So yes i can pretty much vouch for LIC’s suitability for female policies. They will give you transfer in your home state and you can request a transfer for your hometown. They will tranfer readily if vacancies are there.

  • Naman Agrawal

    in syllabus english language , attend or not “English Language test is of qualifying nature and the marks in English Language will not be counted for ranking.”

    what is the meaning

    • Vaibhav

      English test is qualifying in nature means you will need to clear sectional cutoff for this section. If you are unable to clear cutoff for English you will not be able to clear the exam. However if you clear sectional cutoff for English , the scores of english won’t be counted for ranking. Meaning ranking will be decided on the basis of scores in other sections.

      • Naman Agrawal

        thank you sir

  • Pritam

    For students who have got only cgpa, i suggest them convert your cgpa into percentage, then multiple with the total number of subjects you had in
    Example- if you got 60% marks in, and your total number of subject is 74. Then maximum marks would be- 7400
    Aggregate marks obtained would be- 74×60= 4440
    Do like this…
    Thank you!!

    Can u plz tell us from where we can get previous years question papers of diz exam?

  • Pritam

    Shailendra, if your percentage is 65.40%, then multiply 65.40 with the total number of subjects you had in, then you can get aggregate marks, and maximam marks would be total number of sujcets × 100

    • Shailendra kumar

      every university has their own rule of giving and calculating u can be sure of method u have given to me is correct.if i get selected and they will not consider my marks,then what i will pls confirm have u asked or mailed to ibps lic aao that this way u can calculate ur aggregate.pls help

  • Nishesh Bajpai

    Dear sir,

    I have three ques.
    1. I am B.TECH in electronics , in Qualification details Graduate in Others ( ?? ) should i write Engineering or technology of just B.Tech
    2. UPTU follows 25,50,75,100% in aggregrates, should i calculate all years marks n total mark then % or use UPTU % on marksheet
    3. experience will be beneficiary or not ??


    • Vaibhav

      Btech would be fine
      Yes calculate all years marks and then find the aggregate
      experience is desirable not mandatory

    • Vaibhav

      Ideally 6 months from the date of exam.

  • Pritam

    Yes shailendra, i asked my university, i am confirmed. And that is the common sense, try to calculate your higher secondary or secondary exam marks in that way which i told, and you will gate same result. But i am not sure that your percentage is 65.40, because as per AICTE rule 6.54 means 57.9%, first be sure about your percenrage then follow the method which i have told.

    • Shailendra kumar

      ya i m sure about my percentage calculation from my cgpa.i have passed from RGPV university.and according to all university rules (cgpa minus 0.5)multiplied 10(according to AICTE rule).u have calculated wrong.anyway thanks.

    Add +5 for SC/ST, +3 for OBC , +10 for PWD(General)”

    What does above statement says?
    Candidates from SC/ST category can appear for the exam till 35 and candidates from OBC category can appear for the exam till 33.

    This what means right?
