IC 33 REVISION IN SYLLABUS AND OUR (LINGUISTIC) ISSUES

(EXISTING & EXPECTING SOLUTIONS)


As on 19.07.14, the revised syllabus in TAMIL for IC-33 has not been published by
IRDA. Hope the preparation is on. We only pray and wish, IRDA employs a good team
to translate the NEW syllabus in UNDERSTANDABLE TAMIL. Hope they keep in mind
that our rural candidates are APPLICANTS with a 10
th
standard qualification WITH
SIMPLE TAMIL KNOWLEDGE AND NOT LITERARY OR GOOGLE TAMIL. We also
expect that the case studies, question banks and study materials are simple.
It must also be advised to IRDA that the candidates who appear for online exam are
provided with a copy of the question and their answers which would help us to
analyse the preparation of future candidates. Candidates are paying for the exam
and they are not provided the question paper AND this practice must be stopped.
Further, we also come across cases where the answers - the options to tick- are
confusing and more than one answer appear to be right.
Therefore it should be insisted that there can be only TWO OPTIONS YES OR NO
(OR) TRUE OR FALSE.
The questions on arithmetic calculations must be avoided as the days of calculating
premium have been buried long back and it is not being followed even in the
departments with the availability of softwares & apps.
Hope such meaningful changes are made in the exam patterns.
The Insurers, particularly LICI, also must provide online mock tests with dummy ids
& pws.
The ultimate aim of these training & exam is only to provide the applicant his licence.
It is the license ONLY to market and service. Both of these can improve only after
them taking the field and meeting the customers.

Therefore, IRDA must allocate 25hrs of the total 50hrs for field training by the
sponsoring official and it must also be considered that 25 out of the 50 marks is
allocated for this field training to be awarded by the sponsoring officer.
They may fix a minimum for the theory, if they want; but the practical must hold
more as that is what is going to matter.
Chances are that IRDA is not aware of these beautiful ideas.
Chances are that our representatives briefing on these difficulties are not properly
understood so far by the decision making officials.
Hope is that this may be an eye-opener.
Let us try!
