Hello guys, as we all are aware that AAI is in the process of conducting online test for the post of Junior Executive -ATC, it is crucial to know what is to be expected in the test. Also as per syllabus provided by AAI on its official websites, online test will be comprising of two sections:

- Non-Technical
- Technical

**Non-Technical Part:**

English Language (20 Questions), General Intelligence/Reasoning (15 questions), General Aptitude/Numerical Ability (15 questions), General Knowledge/ awareness (10 questions). Level of these questions should be moderate, so SSC level books can be referred for the preparation of Non-technical preparation.

**Technical Part:**

There will be 30 questions each from Mathematics and Physics. Technical is the main section which decides fate of almost all candidates appearing in the test as non tech section is covered well by everyone considering its level. Before writing this post, I went through previous years question papers so that whatever I present here is based on that only and not on some kind of speculations

**Year 2015**

**Physics**:

**Mathematics:**

- Differential Equations (Solution, IF and CF),
- Set,
- Integration (Definite and indefinite, numerical methods),
- Geometry (Asymptotes, Lines, Tangent and Normal),
- Limit,
- Matrices (Identity, skew symmetric, transpose, rank, Inverse),
- Functions (Analytic Function, C.R. equation),
- Convergence of Series,
- Vectors,
- Derivatives (Max., Min. Values) ,
- Lagrange Theorem and Formula,
- Complex Numbers

## Conclusion

So we can conclude that paper is mainly based on 11-12^{th} Maths and Physics concepts with some topics taken from Graduation level syllabus. Preparing from IIT preparation notes and NDA previous years papers will be very helpful in covering these topics. For graduation level topics, just refer books of first year of graduation.I hope covering above mentioned topics will certainly help you getting selected in Airports Authority of India as Air Traffic Control Officer for a job which is very challenging and stressful but equally rewarding in terms of various allowances paid to ATCOs only.
