Title: How to crack IBPS PO 2017 exam | How to prepare for IBPS PO 2017 Bank exams

How to crack IBPS PO 2017 exam?
  • A sure-shot way
  • by

1st Step Get to know everything about the exam
you are going to take. Its crucial.
  • As I have been training students for different
    competitive exams for almost 6 years I generally
    keep myself abreast of the trend, exam pattern,
    cut-offs, etc. Below are the key points that you
    must be aware of before you actually start your
  • Insights
  • If you are able to score 50 marks with 90
    accuracy, you will surely be through.
  • Sectional cut off marks on an average fall
    between the bracket of 412 marks per section
    which clearly suggests that one need not be a
    master of all the sections while preparing for
    this prestigious exam.
  • Accuracy is the key. I repeat, Accuracy is the
    key to success in IBPS PO exam. IBPS marking
    system works on the basis of Percentile so its
    always better to attempt only those questions
    which you are confident of.

  • You must take the exam as it is. What students
    generally do is that they first fix a target
    based on past years cut offs and then they try
    achieving this target with their attempts, no
    matter their attempt go right or wrong. Mark my
    words, to crack a Bank PO exam you need not score
    80 -90 marks, you simply need to be better than
    the rest. So in any case, you must not try and
    attempt the questions which you arent sure of
    solving within a time limit. When the difficulty
    level of an exam rises, it rises for every
    candidate and the souls that are smart enough to
    pick the sitters are the top gainers.
  • You must be highly observant during the exam. As
    you go through a section, you must be able to
    segregate easy, moderate and difficult
    questions. Always pick the easiest of all first,
    attempt the moderate ones next and go to the
    difficult ones in the end if at all times allows
    you to. In Main exam I attempted only 76 out of
    200 questions. Section wise I could attempt only
    10 question in Reasoning (100 accuracy), 18 in
    English language (100 accuracy), 16 in GA (81
    accuracy), 14 in Computers (92 accuracy) and 18
    in Quantitative Aptitude section (88 accuracy).

2nd Step
  • Take a mock test to become aware of your current
    level of preparation. See how many marks you are
    able to score, get to know your strengths and
    weaknesses. Try to measure the gap you need to
    fill in. Make a list of topics which have high
    probability of getting featured in the next IBPS
    PO exam. You can refer to our website Smartkeeda
    for this purpose.

3rd Step
  • Make a habit of practicing high value topics such
    as DI, Inequalities, Data Sufficiency, etc. in
    Quantitative Aptitude, Syllogism, Inequalities,
    Puzzle Test, Seating Arrangement Puzzles,
    Statement-Inferences, Statement-Courses of
    Action, etc. in Reasoning and Comprehension Test,
    Finding the error, Jumbled Sentences, Cloze Test,
    etc in English language section. I egg you on not
    to be a jack of all trades but master of
    some. And when I state the word master here, I
    really mean you to be one.

4th Step
  • Keep enhancing your level of awareness. It will
    further help you increase your speed. Whenever
    you attempt a question or set of questions while
    practicing at home, try finding the shortest
    possible ways to reach the correct answers.
  • For instance, in my case I was sure of my
    attempts of Syllogism in the Reasoning section in
    the Main exam because I followed the method we
    explain at Smartkeeda. I didnt even use a pen
    and was able to mark the correct answers just by
    observing the given statements and conclusions.
  • Similarly, there are numerous shortcuts (though
    not all are worth following) and intuitive
    methods which would really help you attempt
    maximum number of questions in a given time

Lastly, I would like to state that
  • Cracking a competitive exam is more about
    strategy and planning than sheer hard-work.
