  3. Sir,
    I have been selected for the LIC AAO Interview, but I have lost my application form and not able to take a reprint of the same. Could you please advise on how I can get a reprint of the application form?

  4. sir, previous sectional cut off were given like, 8 in numerical ability , 9 in reasoning etc., please tell me that, 8 questions need to be cleared or 8 marks need to be scored?

    • kanimozhi Vijaykumar
      Cutoff is always calculated in terms of marks. So if 8 is the cutoff means a minimum of 8 marks have to be obtained in that section.

    • Lakshmi
      English paper is only qualifying in nature.
      LIC will calculate its marks separately and they may negative marking as well.

  5. Sir, The last date to take the printout is over.. What do i do now?will I be allowed to appear for the exam without the application printout?

    • Anushree
      You need to have the print out of admit card and not application to appear for the exam.
      So just take a printout of the admit card now. That would be sufficient for now

  6. Hello Sir,
    I have applied for Aao 2016 but I forgot to take the printout of the final application form.

    Could you please help me out.

    • If you haven’t taken out printout do not worry. Just check your mail from LIC it will have your username and password. You can use that to download the admit card when its out.

  7. Sir,
    On downloadingpast year papers ifound that in some papers quant and reasoning were of ssc nature(yr 2011,2009,2012) while in others p.o. nature. (Yr 2013) why is that so?
    Tks

    • You don’t need that printout to give the exam. You must have received a confirmation email from LIC on your registered id with the following subject line: Application for Recruitment of Assistant Administrative Officer (Generalist) in Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC)

    while filling the application form of lic AAO,in the educational
    qualification column i am unable to fill my graduation details and
    marks obtained.i have done btech in grading system rule.i have scored
    6.54 pointer cgpa out of 10 and percentage according to my university

  53. For b.tech 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 b.tech.
    Example- if you got 60% marks in b.tech, 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…

  60. Hello Sir,
    I’m currently working as assistant manager in PSU bank and posted around 2000km away from home.
    Can you tell whether LIC AAO job gives home/nearby state posting?
    Also tell me about the transfer policies..
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Ajay

      Yes LIC considers your home state for transfers. You will be posted in the state of your choice. LIC has employee friendly transfer policies.

  61. 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

    • 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.

    • Quant : Quantum CAT by Sarvesh Kumar. You can also choose some other book like Tyra or RS Aggarwal etc.
      Reasoning : Analytical Reasoning by MK Pandey. You can also choose some other book like RS Aggarwal etc.
      English : You can choose to use a book like S P Bakshi or A P Bharadwaj.
      GA: Read Partiyogita Darpan,

  62. Sir , I wish to apply for this job but I have few concerns can you please help me out . Is this job profile suitable for female candidates ? Will I get posting in my own city itself since am a mother of 1 year old I can shift to any other places ??

    • 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.
