NIACL AO – Preparation Strategy

A candidate needs to have a proper preparation strategy if he/she wants to clear the NIACL AO 2021 exam. A candidate first needs to know all the sections/ subjects that are involved in the exam and the examination pattern also. After understanding all this, a candidate is required to make a preparation strategy which should be two things (a) attainable (b) practical. Assign short-term goals daily. Finish them and then assign them again, this way a candidate will remain motivated about the exam and could be able to clear it with flying colors.

NIACL AO Mains Reasoning Ability General Preparation Strategy

    • Divide your time according to your strengths & weaknesses – The first job while starting the preparation for the reasoning section is the strengths & weaknesses check. Candidates should focus more on the weaknesses to ace the examination.
    • Focus on the mock tests– Mock test helps you to find where your preparation presently stands in terms of accuracy and speed. This is why mock tests play a major role in your preparation.
    • Divide the chapters according to the difficulty level – Easy / Moderate / Difficult-Cover the easy ones first and move to difficult ones with every passing day.
    • Equal attention: varied time duration – You need to pay equal ‘attention’ to all topics but in different ways. It is not necessary that all topics will need an equal amount of time, thus you need to decide which topic needs how much time.
  • Practice puzzles – Give ample amount of time to puzzles. They are the decider in the reasoning section as the NIACL examination contains a lot of questions on puzzles.
  • Continuous preparation is the key –  There is nothing better than giving enough time to your practice. Only regular practice can save you from the storm of ignorance and let you discover new ways each day to go about the same question. Make the best use of the time that is left with you till the mains examination.

NIACL AO Mains General Awareness 

General Awareness’ is one of the most tricky and important sections of the examination. It holds a special place when you plan to appear for any bigger/smaller examination. ‘GENERAL AWARENESS’ can be considered easy as it requires only memory work and no pen and paper approach but sometimes it proves to be the most difficult to crack. You do not have to make/ change your strategy on the spot unlike other sections, where you do not know what surprise awaits you.


This section is as important as any other section, maybe more as it might be a scoring section and can act as a booster to your exam performance. So now the question is what should be your approach to crack this section?

  • Know what to cover – The most important step in boosting your performance is knowing ‘what all you need to cover’. Make a daily planner accordingly.
  • Read the newspaper – Reading newspapers daily is very important. Try to at least read all the headlines covered in a newspaper, preferably English .
  • Make notes and go through them on a timely basis When it comes to GK, it is really important to go through all that you have compiled to date and make it permanent in your memory. Except for current and daily happenings and events, Static GK holds as much importance as anything else. It would be good if you take a glance over all that is important from a static point of view, one or two days before the exam also. revise on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

Static GK topics to cover –

  • Important Days
  • Important Events
  • Capitals & Currencies ( especially those currently in news)
  • Important National & International Organizations and their Headquarters
  • National Parks / Dams / Rivers
  • Airports / Stadiums
  • Recent Summits
  • Books & Authors
  • Sports
  • Economy / Finance
  • History/ Science /Geography etc

NIACL AO Mains English Language

  • Read as much as you can – the English Language automatically improves when you come across different content on and daily basis. Nothing can improve your language as much as a regular reading. It is an important way that can help you with the battle and make you win.
  • Look out for new words –  As and when you read anything – an article, a book, a newspaper, online reading portals, or magazines – you should highlight any new word that you spot and also note it down. Try to use these new words in your day-to-day conversations.
  • Practice exercises – Practicing is the key to achieve everything. Learning should always be followed by practice so that you are able to record all learning permanently. Thus, try to get yourself to practice more and more grammar exercises as possible, in order to be well prepared for any challenge that the examiner throws at you.

NIACL AO Mains Quantitative Aptitude 

NIACL AO Mains ‘Quantitative aptitude’ is a section that may be a hard nut, cause it is termed as the most difficult section by the majority of candidates. If practiced well, it can also be a game-changer, so it is for you to decide whether you want to win over your fears or let the numbers take over your future. As it is the mains exam, you can expect a tough challenge. The good thing is, the topics that need to be covered here are similar to any of the banking examinations, thus we do not need to change our study pattern or routine as far as a quant is concerned.


Students with a non-mathematics background may face more difficulty in this section, but it is also one scoring section, where you can find a certain number of approachable questions which an average student may also find easy to attempt. Provided are the tips that you can follow –


  • Build a relationship with the numbers – It’s all in the numbers. This subject of numbers will lead you to attain more numbers in the final game! Learn to play with them. Stressing too much will not lead you anywhere. Quant is all about making use of your calculation skills well.
  • Accuracy – Not only speed but accuracy also plays a major role in the examination. Attempting more may also cost you more with respect to marks, which is not going to be good for you.
  • Mastering the Formulas Try to grasp all the important formulae from all important chapters/topics in the quant section.
  • Using short tricks to solveSometimes shortcuts can be good! Try to learn some good and effective shortcut methods which can give an edge over others and assist you in solving a question in lesser time as expected.
  • Follow Easy to difficult approach  – Segregate & classify the chapters according to their difficulty level and then prepare accordingly.
  • Practice –  Last but not least, ‘practice’ will always make you go long way in the long run. Practice all formulae, all kinds of questions that will help you in realizing your stronger areas and make your weaker areas strong.


Tips for the common topics that come in both the exams, i.e. Generalist and Specialist category both. Some basic things to keep in mind are –


  • Do not rush with your answers. Never answer in a hurry just to increase the question count. Keep your calm and don’t panic.
  • Attempt the paper wisely: Attempting more will not always prove fruitful.
  • Avoid guesswork: Always remember there is no scope of committing errors, as you will be charged 1/4th of every wrong answer you save there. So always check before you click next.
  • Take breaks between your study plan: Don’t forget to keep some time for yourself to avoid stress and take over your peace of mind. Panic will never lead you anywhere but rob you of everything that you might have learned till that D-day.
