United India Insurance Admin Officer Selection Process
Selection Procedure for United Insurance Admin Officer consists of three stages:
Stage 1: Screening test (Objective).
Stage 2: Main examination   (Objective) +  Descriptive Test.
Stage 3: Interview.

Both the Screening test and Main examinations are of Objective type (i.e. MCQ) paper. Also, both the tests are going to be held online.

From the Screening test, 10 times the vacancy (i.e. 10 x 323 = 3230) are short-listed for the UIIC Mains exam.

In the Mains exam, besides the Objective paper, there is a Descriptive test also. The Descriptive test consists of Essay /précis writing and Letter writing. However the Descriptive test is for qualifying purpose only - i.e. mark you score in this test is not counted for deciding merit list.

Three times the vacancy (i.e. 3 x 323 = 969) are short-listed from Mains exam for the UIIC Interview. The Final merit list is based on the marks you score in the Mains exam and the Interview.

Exam Pattern/Syllabus:
