BSF ASI & HC Exam Pattern, Papers & BooksThis blog article of mine is a sequel to a previous blog post titled: BSF ASI HC Recruitment 2012-2013 Notification & Forms and is intended to provide you the prep materials for BSF recruitment exam for Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI-Steno) and Head Constables (HC-Ministerial). It at first discusses about the pattern of BSF ASI & HC Exam and than goes on to provide you the sample papers & prep books to prepare for the same.

In the very beginning, let me tell you that prep materials available on the net for  BSF ASI & HC written Exam is very scarce- almost non-existent and hence, you have to depend on prep materials available for similar recruitment exams conducted for bank clerks as well as for SSC exam for Stenographers etc.

BSF ASI HC Selection processSelection process for BSF ASI-Steno & HC-Ministerial:
Selection process for ASI-Steno & HC-Ministerial positions in BSF is conducted in two phases: Written exam in Phase-I & other tests in Phase-II. You can find the selection process in the flow-chart at right.

The skill test for BSF ASI & HC consists of following:
BSF ASI (Steno):

Transcription of English diction in 60 minutes or Hindi diction in 75 minutes on computer.
BSF ASI (Min):

Exam Pattern/Syllabus for BSF ASI & HC Exam: 
BSF ASI & HC Exam Pattern
There are 100 marks in the written exam,which is of 1-hour 40 minute duration. It has five parts and you can find the section-wise mark-distribution of BSF ASI & HC Exam in the table at left. Minimum qualifying mark is 35 for General category & 33 for others.

IBPS CWE Clerk Exam Pattern
This exam pattern is very similar to Common written exam for bank clerks conducted by IBPS, which is as given in the table at right:  As you can see all the sections are identical and only the number of questions and hence the mark is double in IBPS CWE for Clerk. Hence you can use the prep materials (i.e. sample paper & book) for IBPS CWE for Clerk to prepare for the written exam of BSF ASI (Steno) & HC (Min).

No Syllabus for BSF ASI & HC Exam has been given along with the notification. But you can take help of the syllabus given for CISF ASI exam, which has almost almost the same format.

Sample papers for BSF ASI & HC Exam:
Although I searched on the net for sample/previous years exam papers of BSF ASI & HC Exam, I could not locate any reliable papers. But I feel following authentic previous years SSC Steno exam papers should help you understand what sort of questions are asked in recruitment exams:

This booklet provides you GK in banking industry in glance and gives a mock test paper.
