Step by Step Guide: Quantitative Aptitude Preparation for SBI PO Prelims

Well, as said above, keeping smart work in mind, let's break down the schedule into three parts:

1. Easy questions that are very likely to come in the exam These are usually from Number Series, Simplification, Roots & Average, Surds & Indices, Ratio Proportion, Interest, Percentages.

2. Medium difficulty questions that are likely to come in the Exam These questions usually come from Profit & Loss, Time & Work, Time & Distance, Algebra, Mensuration, Data Interpretation, Progressions

3. Tough questions that are likely to appear in the exam: Questions on Permutation & Combination, Probability, Mixtures & Alligations, Data Sufficiency are usually tough to score in the exam.

Everyone has to necessarily be good at the easy questions. In addition, you should be strong in at least 2-3 topics where the questions are tougher. Usually, it is better to leave the tough questions in the exams unless you know any shortcuts that can help you score marks quickly.

Chapter-Wise Strategy Segregation:

Simplification

Simplification is perhaps the easiest of all to be attempted quickly as well as accurately. It is the matter of effective calculations at the tip of your tongue. Simplification is based on topics from decimals, percentages, square roots, cube roots etc. Marks can easily be obtained in these questions.

Number series

Coming to number series, the recognition of pattern happens to be a challenge but if you have practised well, don't worry about the difficulty. Prelims won't have very challenging questions yet safe advice is to prepare for the worst as well as best. Practice frequently to ace the series recognition.

Data interpretation

Data Interpretation is the illustration of data and extracting the data from the illustrations. Least to say, this chapter requires a hell lot of prior practice. Once you have the keen eye to find the right information, you can answer as many questions as you can from DI. 

Quadratic equations

Quadratic equations are all about formulas and identifying the questions the formula fit into. Prelims won't subject you to time-consuming quadratic questions so just ensure you stick to your solving speed and accuracy through practice.

Time, speed, and distance

These questions are a must and require a great deal of knowledge from streams and river-related questions. This area generally builds confusion among many students. It's the power to imagine the upstream and downstream questions and also apply the addition and subtraction effectively.

Permutations and combinations

You might be aware of the kind of questions that permutation and combination have in its reserve. They are tough and cannot be aced in a day or two, to be honest, but if you have a good approach towards permutation and combination, go for it without any fear.

Must-read: SBI PO English Preparation Guide for Prelims

Probability

If permutation and combination have been aced by you, probability requires very less effort now. Don't panic if a difficult probability question comes through, just move forward to the next question. Probability questions have wide varieties and if not practised before, don't attempt to waste time on it now.

Tips & Strategy: 

You need to make sure you take practice tests individually for each chapter and try to target at least 30 questions from each. Finish the individual practice test within 2 days (targeting both speed and accuracy). After the individual practice, run a quick revision. It's for retaining what you learn. And for the rest of the days till the exam, try to emphasis on mock tests. Mock tests are like fuel to the fire. They can ignite the spark as well as sustain the spark of the prelims. For the tough category chapters, make sure you don't waste enough time there. Skip the questions if you can’t get a clear idea within 30 seconds.

The prelims exam is all about getting enough marks to qualify for the mains. Once you are in the exam, try to maximize on your strengths and ensure that you are not spending too much time on any single question. We hope that you succeed in giving your best on this exam.

Lastly, fix the strategy that you have decided is the best for you, concentrating on your strengths and weakness.

SBI PO Updated Preparation Tips for 2018

How to Crack English Language Section in SBI Prelims 2018?

Hello Aspirant! We are now just a few weeks away from the Preliminary Exams of SBI PO and JA. As discussed in our previous strategy blogs, I am sure you have started taking mock tests to identify your strengths and weaknesses as well as to finalize your test-taking strategies.

In our column last week, we detailed out the test-taking strategy for the English Language section. We reasoned out the increased importance of this section because of the introduction of sectional time-limits and suggested a couple of strategies to maximize your score in this section.

I would strongly suggest you start employing these strategies in your mock tests if you haven’t done so yet. In today’s article, let us look at a few tips to attempt the different question types you come across in the English Language section in the PO and JA Preliminary Exams.

The English Language section consists of 30 questions spread across the following areas 

1. Reading Comprehension – 10 Questions usually

2. Cloze Test – 5 to 10 Questions

3. Fill In The Blanks – 0 to 5 Questions

4. Error Spotting – 0 to 5 Questions

5. Para jumbles – 0 to 5 Questions

6. Critical Reasoning Questions – 0 to 5 Questions (in the PO Exam only)

Reading Comprehension:

In Reading Comprehension, yes, you are expected to read the passage and answer the questions based on it. However, it is also important to know the common question types you would see in RC passages –

• Questions based on facts from the passage

• Synonym/ Antonym based questions

• Inference based questions

• Structure-based questions

• Questions based on the tone of the author/passage

• Questions on central idea/title of the passage & Questions on the summary of the passage

The first two question types are less time consuming as well as easy to score as they do not require us to understand the complete passage. The ability, however, lies in how fast you can identify a relevant paragraph to locate a word/ phrase in question. However, you need to be good with vocabulary to be able to answer these questions accurately.

Inference based questions require us to understand the logic behind author’s opinions/ assumptions. Based on what has been mentioned in the paragraph, which of the following would the author disagree with is a common question in this category. In some cases, questions could also be asked on the logical structure of the passage; for example, is the author answering a question that he has initially put forth in the passage or is he trying to convince the reader of his point of view with examples etc. These questions are more commonly asked in the PO as compared to the Clerk.

When it comes to questions based on the central idea of the passage, you are asked either for the summary of the passage or the purpose with which the author has written the passage. These questions are preferably attempted after fact-based or vocabulary-based questions.

Cloze Test & Fill in the Blank Question Types

Cloze test gives you a passage with some of the words omitted. While solving for the omitted words, remember that the sentences in a passage flow in a logical way and in the first reading, you should be able to understand the flow and hence the central idea of the passage. Once that is established, you can fill in the blanks while ensuring the tone of the passage is maintained. One more quick way to eliminate options is by making use of parts of speech. We have seen a few modifications of this question type in the last couple of years – however, the basic strategy still remains similar.

For dual blank questions, we suggest you guess the answer to the question based on the tone and context of the question before looking at the options. This will help manage your time well while reducing a lot of confusion.

Error Spotting Questions

Error Spotting questions evaluate a candidate’s grammar abilities. However, if you have really looked at the previous SBI PO and JA Prelims question papers, you would notice that questions often evaluate you on some basic principles such as subject-verb agreement, tenses, adjectives, and adverbs etc. With good practice, it is easy to develop comfort with these basic question varieties and error spotting questions can become easiest and the most scoring question types.

A student could be either asked to spot the error or pick the right option for a specific part of the sentence – in both these cases, the strategy remains the same. Do not go with gut feel but keep eliminating the different rules of grammar that are not violated until you identify the actual mistake.

Para jumbles

The first step in solving a para jumble is to identify the central idea of the paragraph. Look for connectors/ tone changes like but, however or further to build a logical flow to the passage. Mark these statements as pairs and start eliminating options based on these sentence combinations to arrive at the final answer. You could also use pronouns (which would only follow nouns) or words that suggest chronology or sequence of events to identify these pairs of statements. Students often find these questions confusing and rightly so – however, solving one set of jumbles can give you answers to 4 or 5 questions and that is always tempting

Critical Reasoning

The PO Exam could also see a few questions based on Critical Reasoning – these questions could range from identifying the central idea of a passage to flaws in author’s logical reasoning or identify options that might strengthen or weaken the author’s conclusion. You are certain to see these questions in Mains exam but if the examiner wants to spring a surprise, you might also see a few of these in the Preliminary Exam.

Before you go for the final exam, you should have a fair idea where your strengths lie – are you better with Para Jumbles or the Grammar-based questions or is RC your strong suit or the Cloze Passages? How do you do so? Practice, Practice, and Practice! A mock test a day keeps all worries away

We wish you all the best!
