Candidates preparing for the LIC AAO exam put more efforts in Analytical reasoning and Mathematics but tend to be lenient with English, Computer and General Knowledge section. Few candidates think English is easy and they can easily clear this section while few sustain a phobia from English. Both leniency and phobia must be eradicated in order to bag a good score in this section. We will emphasize on how to improve score in English section. The efforts required and systematic approach is discussed in this article.

1. Grammar:

Questions may be asked in the form of error detection. Sentence Correction may also appear but it is not very frequent. Yet, you should be ready for anything.
Questions on Cloze test and fill in the blanks are aslo partially based on grammar, if the words to be filled are easy.

If you are weak in Grammar, start with Wren and Martin. Make it your bible for grammar as it is a very good book for beginners. Moreover, LIC AAO does not deal with very advanced concepts and Wren and Martin deals with fundamental concepts in a good manner. Make sure that you solve the questions given at the end of every concept.

There are some topics that demand extra attention. The topics are mentioned below:
a) Tenses
b) Subject Verb agreement
c) Sequence of Tenses
d) Modifiers
e) Pronouns
f) Parts of Speech

2. Reading Comprehension:

It is the most important section on LIC AAO as it tests your ability to read and understand a text that is completely unfamiliar to you. If you answer this correctly, you can happily leave all other English questions unattempted.
There is no definite trick to crack this section. The only thing that can sail you through is by speeding up your reading skill by building a routinely reading habit. You will already be reading a newspaper for enhancing your vocabulary. The best part is that you would be preparing yourself for Reading Comprehension as well in that exercise by increasing your reading stamina, exposing yourself to a variety of topics. PLEASE READ REGULARLY!

3. Vocabulary:

Since Englsih is just a qualifying section, you can leave vocabulary for the last.
Questions pertaining to vocab come in the form of
a) Synonyms.
b) Antonyms.
c) Fill in the Blanks

Each question related to the above mentioned categories test your vocabulary. To build a strong vocabulary start reading a good National Newspaper (I prefer The Hindu). You would come across many new words in that exercise. Note them down in a notebook, along with their meanings, parts of speech (noun/verb/adjective etc.), and a sentence that uses the word. This simple exercise would give you a comprehensive and exhaustive grasp not only over the words but also over the usage. Revise these words to improve your retentive ability.
