The candidates are advised that first understand the concept of IBPS PO Exam Pattern 2016 (Preliminary and Main Exam) then you should read the following preparation tips to do quick preparation.

#Tip 1: Reasoning is easy as well as tough!

There prevails a misconception that reasoning section is highly scoring. As an experienced campaigner, my advice would be to solve the ones which can do it in the first attempt and move on to the other sections. Later on, if you get time, then try and solve questions based on puzzles. If you are not sure of any question, then better leave it unattended.

#Tip 2: Focus on questions from English Language

English Language is like a pot of gold hidden under a bush. Not much student fancy a good chance of scoring almost 100% in the English Language section. But the truth is, English Language section is relatively easier than other section. The best part is you either know an answer, or you don’t. This saves a lot of time for other sections.

#Tip 3: Don’t ignore Quantitative Aptitude

Don’t forget the fact that there are sectional cut offs for every competitive exam. Hence, you cannot ignore Quantitative Aptitude section where Maths and Data Interpretation would be waiting for you. About 35 questions are present from this section during the preliminary exam, so, you will have to concentrate on this area as well. Nevertheless, you can choose to ignore Geometry and Trigonometry.

#Tip 4: Touch every section on a daily basis

For the preliminary exam, there are 3 sections, namely, Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude and English Language. Never try to complete sections one by one, rather spend some time on each section on a daily basis. For an instance, you can give 2 hours daily to Quantitative Aptitude then take a break for an hour, then start with Logical Reasoning and spend another 2 hours followed by a break of 2 hours and then giving one hour to English Language.

#Tip 5: Balance between study and refreshment

Never think of studying for more than 3 hours continuously. Your level of concentration will not remain the same throughout. It is advised to take some breaks in between slots of 2 or 3 hours so that you comeback with a re-energized brain.

#Tip 6: Solve previous years’ question papers

You must be thinking that this is one of the most common tip which is offered by all. In fact, it is and because of its effectiveness, everybody likes it. Solving previous years’ question papers gives you confidence as well as knowledge about the pattern of paper which you would be getting in the examination hall. The pattern of questions will allow you to adjust your preparations accordingly for a better result.

All the best for IBPS PO 2016!
