As we are left with 30 days effectively to prepare for Exam, we should carefully structure and review our “NIACL Assistant Study Plan”. Assuming that a student studies for 3 hours a day in the coming days, we are left with a total of 90 hours to prepare for the test.

Have a good look at the proper study hours to be dedicated towards each section and then proceed to our section-wise study plan for NIACL Examination.

NIACL Assistant Study Plan: English Language

English Language is one such section where you need to work on both intuition and understanding. If you have enough time, there is one advice that can take you places: READ.

  • Form a regular habit of reading newspapers and novels which would help you to increase your vocabulary as well as understanding at the same time.
  • Practice Reading comprehension, Para Jumbles and Cloze Test paragraphs by devoting at least an hour daily to these topics.
  • For Grammar, keep revising the rules and write them essentially from topics like Subject Verb Agreement, Tenses and Active & Passive Voice.
  • Study the following topics from paper-sets. Dedicate time in learning topics like one word Substitution, Synonym/Antonyms etc.

You will feel the change over the time as vocabulary cannot be improved in a single day.

It is not a rule that we are left with only 30 hours for this section. You may differ based on level of your preparation and allocate time for this section accordingly but the idea is to make you aware of the most Important Topics in each section.

Optimal Allocation of Hours for English Section

Try to understand the basic concepts of English language that will increase your performance but that might be a time taking task.

Topic Name  Number of Questions (Expected) Allocation of Hours
 Reading Comprehension 10 12
 Spotting the Error 5 6
 Parajumbles 5 3
 Synonyms/ Antonyms 2-3 3
 Idioms and Phrases 1-2 3
 Cloze Test 5-10 3

Follow our NIACL English language study plan for the upcoming days. The given plan will help you to prepare for English language in a structured manner.

While building concepts and solving questions, there should be no time limit or pressure. Ideally, one should try one’s best to solve 30-40 questions on each topic (attempt section tests)

Topic Name  Number of Questions (Expected) Allocation of Hours
 Blood Relations 2-4  2
 Coding Decoding 3-5  4
