Strategy

AMONG ALL DI SECTION IS IMPORTANT

  • This part is decision maker. There are 3 sets of 15 questions that has 5 questions in each set carrying 15 marks.
  • Simplifications is a matter of past for PO level exams.

What to do from now:

  • Many questions are repeated so try to solve recent year questions.
  • Do not solve 3-4 years old questions.Solve sample papers.
  • Use tricks to solve questions in less time. We will upload tips and tricks for some of the section as soon as possible so keep visiting the site.
  • Give 35-40 minutes to this section. Giving more and less time can affect your sectional cutoff.
  • Try to avoid lengthy questions, these questions are asked only to kill your time.
  • Avoiding questions comes only by practicing so try to solve 1-2 sample paper per day. It gives you an idea about which question should not be solved.
  • Solve at least 7-8 sectional papers before appearing for exam.

So from all discussion:

  • Try to Solve 10-12 question accurately to cross the cutoff marks.(Depends on level of question)
  • Focus on DI section
  • Don’t give more than 30-35 seconds in one question
  • Tips and Tricks (will be uploaded soon on KRISHIGYAN.COM)

      Hi kailash,
      Sorry, you cannot give IBPS SO exam until you are graduate. But you can start the preparation from now only. This will ensure your chances when you appear for the exams. Can I know you are graduating from which course and university?
