IB ACIO Exam Pattern Sample Papers  BooksIB ACIO Exam 2014 for selection of Assistant Central Intelligence Officers in Intelligence Bureau has already been announced and submission of form has started. Are you one of those who had applied for this job and now want some prep material – the sample papers and books for IB ACIO exam? This blog post is being made just to help you find these exam papers and prescribed book.

If you are a graduate, aged 27 years or less and have not applied so far but would like to, please visit my previous blog article titled: IB ACIO 2014 Recruitment Exam Notification, Form & Eligibility.

First let us find what is the pattern of IB ACIO exam.

IB ACIO 2014 Exam Pattern:
Selection process for Assistant Central Intelligence Officers in Intelligence Bureau consists of a written exam followed by Interview.

The written exam consists of both objective type (Paper-I) & descriptive type questions (Paper-II).
The Objective type (multiple choice) question would be set from following test sections:
1.0 General awareness.
2.0 English language.
3.0 Test of reasoning.
4.0 Mathematical aptitude.
Descriptive type questions would be set for Test English language (Essay & Précis writing). Both objective & descriptive type examinations will be held in a single session for 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Other than above, ACIO exam notification has not said anything about the number of questions in each area and also what would be the mark distribution.

IB ACIO 2014 Exam Syllabus:
IB ACIO Exam does not tests your academic knowledge and hence there is no specified syllabus for this exam.  As you can find in Exam Pattern above, the exam is conducted to test your aptitude and hence you can find the standard of questions for these sections to be same as that of any other competitive exam, which requires same eligibility (i.e. graduation) - for example Bank Po Exams.

Sample/Previous years Exam papers of IB ACIO Exam:
I am always skeptical about the sample or old exam papers of recruitment exams posted on the net. The reason being there is no authenticity about the exam papers and whatever papers are posted, they are not of high quality. Therefore I always tell examinees to go for books instead of online sample papers as preparation material, as book authors are at least accountable for the accuracy of information published.

IB ACIO Exam papers are no exception - When I searched on the net for exam papers of this exam, I came across a lot of websites/blogs posting bogus links on paper download. However I could find following previous years paper of IB ACIO Exam useful:

This IB exam paper gives you solved Objective type question paper on English Language & Comprehension (Held on 24-1-2010).

In addition to above IB ACIO exam papers, I would advise you to go through the sample papers of Bank PO exams, as the test sections are identical - General awareness, English language, Test of reasoning and Mathematical aptitude. You can just go through this blog post on SBI PO exam papers.
