Exam Strategy for IBPS PO Mains

Published on Thursday, November 17, 2016

Quantitative Aptitude

  • Data Interpretation/ Data Analysis - 15 Marks
  • Data sufficiency - 5 Marks
  • Series - 5 Marks
  • Miscellaneous (Time & Work, P&L, SI, Speed &Distance, CI, etc) - 25 Marks 
How many questions can you attempt within 40 minutes ?

If you aren't a genius, you can't do 50.

So you need to pick easy questions. 

My recommended strategy: 

Miscellaneous part of the section is relative to attempt within less period of time.

Attempt Data Interpretation in the end. You can't attempt all the DI sets within the time allotted. 


  • Puzzles(In/Out, Floor, Circular, & Linear Arrangement) - 25 Marks 
  • Critical Reasoning (weak arguments, probable reason, conclusions) - 10 Marks 
  • Syllogism - 5 Marks 
  • Input/Output - 5 Marks 
  • Data Sufficiency - 5 Marks 

My Strategy:

Attempt puzzles at the end. It's an easy section if you are not wasting your time on difficult puzzles.

English Language

  • RC’s - 20 Marks 
  • Jumbled Sentence - 5 Marks 
  • Errors - 5 Marks 
  • Close Test - 5 Marks
