Do note that you can attempt realistic IBPS Clerk Prelim exams on Studycopter here.
1. It is essential that you go through all the questions at least once in the exam. This helps you identify questions which are easy and can be solved in less time. NEVER, NEVER leave any questions unread in the exam. Note that this doesn’t not mean that you attempt all exam questions. The PO Prelim and Mains exams that happened earlier this year were very different from the pattern that people were expecting so never assume anything for granted.
2. Always start with the section you are most comfortable in. This helps you build confidence and do well on the exam. Make sure you don’t spend more than 20-25 minutes on Reasoning or Quantitative Aptitude. The English section should take 15 minutes only (assuming you are OK or good in english). NEVER get disillusioned with a section that you did badly on. Always focus on doing better on other sections to make up for one poor section.
3. Remember to never try and waste your time attempting the questions you are not confident of solving. There are a lot of other questions to solve and score. MOSTLY THE EXAMS ARE TESTING YOUR TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS AND ABILITY TO SKIP HARD QUESTIONS.
4. If you can eliminate 2-3 choices, then GUESS the correct answer. Based on probability, you would end up with a good score if you did this.
5. Many Questions in Quantitative and Reasoning are caselets, i.e. one paragraph or data set, and many questions based on that. ALWAYS solve all caselet questions of the given set in one go. Do not leave the set partially solved. If you do so, you get out of the flow and have to re-read the caselet, thereby loosing precious time
6. Solve all Reading Comprehension questions in one go. You can leave only vocabulary based questions for solving later. Passage based questions should be solved in ONE go only. Same logic holds for Parajumbles questions also.
7. If the answers to Data Interpretation (DI) questions are not close to each other, then DON’T waste time on exact calculations. Get a approximate answer and move on to the next question. Many time, DI questions are very time consuming.
WITH ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT FOR THE EXAM, THIS IS THE TIME NOT TO GET WORRIED. If you have faith in yourself and your preparation, luck will go your way and you WILL clear the exam.
DO A FEW MOCK TESTS IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS TO GET READY FOR THE EXAM. BUT DON’T OVERBURDEN YOURSELF AND DON’T TAKE TOO MUCH PRESSURE.
IF THERE IS A TOPIC YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND, IGNORE IT. MOVE TO THINGS YOU KNOW WELL.
REVISE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR PREPARATION TILL DATE. SPEND TIME ANALYZING YOUR MISTAKES AND TRICKY CONCEPTS. TAKE HELP OF A FRIEND OR TEACHER. Studycopter’s Tutors are always available for help.
