United India Insurance UIIC Assistant Exam 2017 Previous Cut Off Marks :
In the past the pattern was totally different. There used to be only 1 exam of 250 marks. Last time UIIC exam held in 2015 with cutoff marks 170 (unofficial) out of 250 . Let’s have a look at expected cut off for 2017
UIIC Assistant Previous Year Question Paper – As I said the pattern was totally different in the past, syllabus was also different. This time Pattern is different, question became tougher than before. Insurance exams are more like bank Po exams. You need to prepare hard, prepare very well to clear the exam. I personally won’t advise you to rely on previous papers because they outdated. Time has changed alot and so the syllabus, pattern & difficulty level. Instead of preparing on the basis of previous paper check model papers for 2017. Still if you want to have a look at the previous years question, i found couple of them
UIIC Assistant Exam 2015 Question Paper
Few important points to remember and Sources to Prepare United India Insurance UIIC Assistants Exam 2017 :
- Read the syllabus carefully and prioritize the topics, since you don’t have much time to prepare focus on topics which are scoring & easy to attempt. Prioritizing will helps you to cover more syllabus in less time.
- I spoke with my couple of friends who cleared the exam. according to them one thing is very important that is “Practice“. So before it is too late you must consider this aspect. Practice is just like spending time with your partner. More you spend time with questions, more you understand them and will get familier with them. And it becomes very easy for you to attempt and answer the question in less time while taking exam.
- “Time management” is important while taking exam. Since you need to answer 100 question in 60 Minutes. And it is impossible to answer all the questions. So you need to select the questions carefully which you need to answer. Select easy and less time consuming questions.
- While preparing make notes of all maths tricks and shortcut and revise them frequently. And also note down the exceptions from English Grammar that will help in solving “finding errors”
- Join some test series so that you can identify your weak areas and work on them. So you need to physically go some coaching center, everything is online there are plenty of website that provide online test series like GradeUp, Testbook, MeritShine etc.
- To prepare Maths tricks watch youtube videos by MeritShine, Very helpful videos, you will get enough confidence after watching and learning maths tricks. Watch videos published on SBI PO Quant section. Don’t worry these videos are not only for SBI exam. It covers major topics that may appear on any government exam. These videos are helpful to prepare Quant section of any exam. Only differnce that I have noticed in SBI PO quant and Other exam Quant is level of difficulty. SBI PO quant is relatively difficult than Others. So If you prepare for difficult, you will able to attempt easier question efficiently. Questions in UIIC Asst exam may be easier if we compare it with SBI PO exam, but in reality it is a diffcult exam which require a lot of practice and hard work.
