Firstly, what was the Trending Topic in LIC AAO 2016?
Overall the trending topic in LIC AAO 2016 first day was #GeneralAwareness.
Now coming back to the exam.
How was the Exam in Day 1?
First of all, exam was NOT very easy. It was a mixture of all emotions. The reason why aspirants mostly found the reasoning, quantitative aptitude part was Easy, because they have been preparing like IBPS PO V. So it was inevitable that anything Normal Standard will seem to be Easy for them.
The reasoning had a lot of puzzle. It was more like Puzzling Ability. However, they were not difficult. The syllogisms were easy. Puzzles were of Building, Floor related problems. On the other hand there were seating arrangement based puzzle. Over all the reasoning ability was quite attemptable.
The quantitative aptitude was not easy neither tough. It was on the moderate side. There were Data Interpretation questions which were very easy. The DIs were based on tables and charts mainly. There were quadratic equations which were easy to attempt. On the other hand, there were series based problems which were confusing and little bit of time consuming for a bunch. Other problems based on Interest, Boats, Average, Shape Based problems were moderate.
Although the problems were not difficult, but they were slightly calculative.
The most talked was “General Awareness”. Although, plenty of questions came from our Expected Questions PDF, still there were prominent presence of Stock GK. There were NO INSURANCE BASED QUESTIONS in LIC AAO 2016. The questions were mostly from Current Affairs and STOCK GKs. Stock GKs included, power plants, nation parks and other obvious topics. The current affairs had questions basically from January to February. There were no questions from any Budget.
Overall, General Awareness was MODERATE and aspirants did not attempt quite a lot.
