Starting from today, What should be the strategy to crack IBPS PO Exam 2018

Still we have 40 Days for Prelim Exam and If you give your best, I believe you can definitely make into Mains Exam. Though I recommend aspirants to focus more on Mains exam but as you are starting from Today so I am sharing you some of the tips which you can use to get selected in this exam.
  1. In exam If you are able to score 60% marks with 90% accuracy, you will surely be through.
  2. Sectional cut off marks on an average fall between the bracket of 4–12 marks per section which clearly suggests that one need not be a master of all the sections while preparing for this prestigious exam.
  3. 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 it’s always better to attempt only those questions which you are confident
  4. Never assume which questions will be asked in the exam or which type of difficulty level can be asked. They can change the pattern as per their convenience and requirement. Your job is to prepare for the worst case scenario.
  5. Concept clearance :- Fundamental should be strong and consider this as one time work so that it can help you in all the coming exam. Watch YouTube videos for that. (Adda247 , bank4success, feel free to Learn, Mahindra Guru etc.)
  6. Online Mock Test - Practice Daily 1-2 Mock Paper but what is more important than attempting mock paper is its analysis. Until and unless you do not analyze your every mistake, weakness and your strength, you won't be able to improve yourself. Oliveboard is one such mock which you can look up to for upcoming IBPS PO Exam.
  7. Daily Quiz from Various Apps - Attempting Daily Quiz will help you in sectional time management which is most important for this year's prelim exam. You can use adda, Grade up, affairs cloud,bsc4success etc.
  8. Giving time to weak Subject - If you are not good in any subject, most people it's either English or Aptitude. Give 2 hour daily to increase your level or at least you should be able to clear with any type of paper.
Study Plan for IBPS PO Exam Preparation
  1. Divide your Day in three Category → Must Do Daily Activity , Chapter Wise Preparation & Mock Test Practice.
  2. Must Do Activity (Give 3 Hr Daily for These Activity)→ Reading News Paper, Cramming Vocabulary, Reading News Paper, Learning Speed Math Techniques( cramming Tables, squares, cube, fractions etc.). Remember Current affairs is current activity don’t make it past one.
  3. Mock Practice (Daily 2 hr) → As we all Know without lots of practice we can’t crack any exam, so you will have to give lots of mock test before exam and analyze it Properly. Get Oliveboard Mock Test.
  4. Chapter-Wise Preparation (2 Hour for all three subject)→ With Mock test you will also have to practice chapter-wise (Only Important and High Weightage) Questions. when you solve chapter-wise, solve it with in time, like 60 questions in 35–45 min, then only it will help you in exam.
Don’t demotivate with Mocks Test score - The biggest myth that candidate have in their mind is that they take mock to check how good they are but it should be to know where they can Improve themselves. Also who are not scoring good marks in Mock Test, they feel that it’s waste of preparation and it is end of road for them. Keep Practicing regularly you can make it in exam.
