Hey guys, I have given last AAI ATC exam....and not selected due to 15 marks less than the cut-off. But many of u are confused about the syllabus and books to prepare. So let me tell you about the xam so that every1 of us get an idea....
1.) 120 questions of 120 marks in 120 min., so u can imagine what was the level of questions.
2) wt. 50% tech, 50% non-tech, but recently AAI mentioned 70% tech nd 30% non-tech for dis xam...so be prepared for both scenarios.
3) Technical includes Maths and Physics of 11nth and 12th class (last tym syllabus was not specifically mentioned by aai but at this tym they had uploaded the syllabus on site).
4) For maths u can follow 11th nd 12th class NCERT but mind it that all the topics of NCERT r not in the syllabus so just read : Linear Algebra(Matrix nd Determinant) , Calculus, Differential Equations, Probability and statics, and Numerical Methods, enough for the xam.
5) Physics contains mainly Mechanical portion of ncert but some other topics are also given in syllabus which are not in ncert, so make extra-efforts.
6) Non-tech contains: 20 marks english, Reasining 15 marks, apti 15 marks, gk 10 marks, But now it has only 30% wt. so marks reduces accordingly of each part.
7). No books are available in market for ATC preparation. Mind it Arihant and GKP publications has published books for JE(Electronics and ATC) but they are not for ATC, they have syllabus of only Electronics JE. So its a trap, don't purchase them.
8) Question paper was somewhat calculative, as it has Apti, Maths, Reasoning, and Physics...so speed decides the marit.
9) No sample papers are available in market and on internet, so just be focused on the syllabus only.
10) Date of exam is not announced so far...but it may be in last week of November or in December..so be prepared........if anybody still have any confusion den u can ask, bt don't ask silly questions as i had already mentiond all the points briefly....*(by an ATC candidate)
