Last minute tips to perform well in IBPS PO prelims 2016

Oct 14, 2016 18:59 IST

    IBPS is all set to conduct the Written Examination for recruitment of personnel for Probationary Officer/ Management Trainee VI posts in the Participating Organisations. The exam is scheduled to be held on 16, 22, 23 and 27 October 2016.

    Here the banking team of jagran josh is providing some last minutes tips to perform well in the examination.

    Scan the section first: Every competitive examination has some easy, some moderate and some very tough questions – those who wish to ace the exam must learn to spot the easy ones and avoid the tough ones. No one will be able to attempt all questions in the given time and therefore the best approach is to focus on accuracy rather than on the number of questions to be attempted. In this scenario the key to score maximum marks is the ‘selection’ of the right question to attempt.

    Revise the concepts across all test subjects: Candidates are advised to revise all the formulas and rules for each subject.  For example: Revise basic English grammar rules from any grammar book.

    Sectional Cut off is there: Well, this eliminates a lot of candidates in the examination since nobody is a champion in each and every section of the examination. However, a banking job requires equal ease with all the subjects in the examination. In case you are not comfortable in one or two sections, try to score decent marks in those sections at least. Otherwise, even if you score high in other sections, you are out of the race altogether.

    Avoid using the shortcuts that you learn just before the exam:  Yes, this is one aspect that should be kept in mind especially for the freshers. Do not ever think of attempting more questions in case you are not sure about them. In the examination hall, it seems correct but once you come out, the number of wrong questions increases and so does negative marks, thereby, reducing the overall marks in the examination.

    Aspirants are advised to avoid guesswork as there will be negative marks of 0.25 for each wrong answer. Questions can be very tricky, so read them very carefully before answering.

    Do not lose excessive time over any question: The best rule is that if you are no closer to solving a Question even after 2-3 minutes then it is wise to abandon the same and move on to other one. 

    Cross-check the options also:  Sometimes one can easily get the answer by just checking the given options. So cross check the given options before marking your answer.

    Be confident:  Self Confidence is the key to crack this examination. From a comparative analysis of the candidates who got already selected, self confidence was one thing that found common amongst all selected ones. You need to keep yourself charged and have faith in yourself. This will definitely help you to answer your questions in the examination with self-assurance and conviction.  

    Don’t get panic: And last but not the least ensure aspirants should pace themselves during the exam. It is most important among all is “Don’t get panic” this will lower speed and thinking ability.
