IBPS PO/MT – Suggested approach to answering the paper

Keep in mind the following principles when taking the test

  • The questions are distributed unevenly across the sections (RA – 50, EL – 40, QA – 50, GA – 40 and Computers – 20). Keep in mind that you are require to get a minimum in EACH subject and a minimum in the TOTAL too.
  • There is negative marking
  • Competition is high. So EVERY MARK COUNTS!!

You might want to adopt the following methodology when attempting the test

You have 200 minutes to take the test i.e. 3 hours and 20 minutes. Plan three passes through the test – Pass 1, Pass 2 and Pass 3. Within each of the Passes, plan how much time you will spend on each section.

  • PASS 1 – Grab the ‘low hanging fruit’ i.e. taken the questions where you are most confident and take lesser time to respond and answer them. Park the time-consuming questions. This gets the pressure of poor timeline distribution off your head.
    • Keep a mental note of the distribution of difficult questions you are parking.
    • Keep an eye on the time.
  • PASS 2 – spend more time on the section where you have parked more questions, so that you target the minimum for each subject properly.
  • PASS 3 – Don’t let your tired mind look forward to escape from the classroom just yet. Review the answers as quickly as you can. You will be surprised how many questions you have marked incorrectly, though you had worked out the answer correctly.

All the best
