FCI Syllabus –

Are you really interested in FCI ? or you’re looking for FCI Syllabus.

If your answer is Yes, you have come to the place because today I’m going to discuss the FCI Syllabus in detail.

At first, it’s very important to know what exactly FCI is.

FCI is an abbreviation of Food Corporation Of India and it’s a government of India as well.

At the end of the year, it recruits plenty of people for various posts.

In fact, there are lots of posts under FCI and you’re free to choose any of those as per your requirement. I’ve described all of them in a systematic way below.

FCI exam’s notification is published in the month of September or October every year for sundry posts.

But in this, those people are only able to enter, whose preparation is good enough.

Actually, the exam consists of three phases, the first one is Prelims, the second is Mains and the last one is about the Interview process thereby the whole process is completed.

In detail, there’s a discussion about the FCI syllabus or detailed information about all the phases of this exam.

Without spending the time, let’s start.

Before I explain, let me tell you that here you’ll know the FCI exam or FCI manager syllabus.

1. FCI Phase 1 Syllabus ( Prelims ) –

Firstly, I’ll tell you about the FCI Phase 1 Syllabus of this exam such as what topics will be asked, what’s negative marking & time period is, additionally even how many questions are taken from each subject.

For topics or chapters, which will be asked in this phase are in the table below.

But, there’re other more factors like negative marking, number of questions & time period. It’s very important to know about them.

First of all, it’s absolutely right that Phase-I includes negative marking and it’s 0.25 marks for every wrong answer.

It means that if you fail to answer the question, 0.25 marks will be deducted from obtained marks.

Now, we focus on subjects. Actually, there’re three subjects which will be included in Phase-I and they’re English, General Intelligence and Reasoning & Mathematics.

Whereas, you’re asked 30 questions of English with 20 minutes, 35 questions of Reasoning Ability with 20 minutes & 35 questions of General Aptitude with 20 minutes.

See the table below.

To understand easily, check all the comprehensive lists of chapters of individual subjects, which are related to phase-I.

1. Reasoning Ability

We know that General Reasoning is only asked for speculating the ability of thinking of the candidates.

So, the commission puts questions related to reasoning to check the speed of the candidates along with the accuracy. To be done so, the committee provides only 20 minutes for 30 questions and it’s bilingual.

Moreover, make sure what you’re reading is being revised in some intervals of days because it enhances your reading strength.

Hello everyone, My name is Vijay Gupta and I belong to a very small town that is situated in district Hardoi, which is in Uttar Pradesh. 1. Education – I’ve completed my primary education from a private school that is situated in my hometown and upper primary, matric and higher secondary education have been completed from a government college. Well, I was an average student till class 5th, but I accelerated my preference towards studies from class six. Consequently, I passed out many classes with good positions. Even I passed out 12th with good marks ( 405/500 ) and topped my college. Due to getting good marks, I got a cheque of 500 rupees and was rewarded by the Principal of my college. After completing my 12th, I prepared twice for IIT ( Indian Institute of Technology ) from Aakash institute, but unfortunately, I failed to get selected into the best IIT colleges. But during the preparation, I was being graduated from CSJMU Kanpur. I completed my graduation in 2016 and now I’m pursuing an educational degree ( B.Ed. ). 2. Profession – Although I love teaching, but I also do blogging. Both are my favorite jobs.
