SBI PO Prelims Study Plan 2017: Section-Wise Strategy

The reason why majority of students fail in the examination is that they couldn’t manage to seek the minimum cut off in a section, no matter they may score very good in other sections. You need to understand here that if your section A is weak and section B is strong, lay your focus mainly on section A so that atleast you clear the sectional cutoff easily. Generally, this problem is majorly seen with English Language. The first section of our analysis is English Language.

Below is a list of some topics that we understand to be important for this exam. The topics are mentioned along with the expected number of questions & expected difficulty level.

 Topics    Expected No. of Questions  Difficulty Meter
Reading Comprehension  10  Moderate
Cloze Test   5 Easy
 Spotting the errors  5 Moderate-Difficult
 Jumbled Sentences/ Parajumbles  5 Moderate
Miscellaneous  5 Difficult

At times, due to lack of practice candidates tend to leave some topics untouched. It is advisable not to do this and to invest time to practice English language section as it will help you to score more. Always read the sentence carefully and try to interpret its meaning. Divide the sentence into two parts and then combine them after correction by searching for connectives. If a question is taking much time to solve, leave it for the time being and attempt the next. Prepare SBI PO English Language Section according to the information given above. Let us now move to the second section of our study plan i.e Reasoning Ability.

The best part of preparing for the reasoning section is that it can be solved by using common sense (Indeed, it is not so common). One’s presence of mind is more than sufficient to solve these problems and one can score very heavily in this section by having a strategy in place resulting in achieving the overall cut-off for the exam. While building concepts and solving questions, there should be no time limit or pressure. Below is a list of some topics that we understand to be important for this exam.

 Topics    Expected No. of Questions  Difficulty Meter

Mathematical Operations  2-3 Moderate-Difficult
Direction Based  2-3 Moderate
Inequalities 3-5 Moderate
