If you were to ask a person on what kind of Job should one seek that would offer him job security along with growth opportunities, most job aspirants would unanimously suggest you to apply for bank jobs. This is exactly the reason why aspirants write the IBPS PO exam to get into the major nationalized banks. The exam being a competitive one compels the aspirant to work smartly rather than working hard to surpass the cut-off scores. Aspirants have to have a clear idea of the pattern of exam and aspects allied to it. Thus students have to be at their best to clear such an exam when it comes to preparing for the same. Below are certain points that will come to your aid while preparing for the exam:
Prioritize answer quality over quantity
Aspirants should try to answer half the questions with around 90 per cent efficiency as this strategy would ensure that they would breeze past their peers with regard to clearing the exam with flying colors.
Ignore the urge for perfection
What every aspirant should bear in mind is the fact that the cut-off marks per section would be in a range between 4 to 12 marks and hence should not worry about not being able to master every section as not everyone has achieved this imaginary ideal. Thus the aim should be to maximize one’s strengths while doing away with the weaknesses.
Precision is crucial
The exams the aspirants would have appeared earlier might not have penalized them for providing wrong answers but in this case, there will be a penalty for the same that would dent their scores to a great extent. Thus aspirants should only answer those questions which they are hundred percent confident.
Do not resist the exam flow
Most aspirants would fall into the trap of fixing the previous year cut-off as their benchmark for the Upcoming Bank Exams 2017 and giving everything without having a litmus test of their strategy on whether it would go wrong or not. A better idea would be to be better than the next candidates than trying to score around 80 to 90 per cent. This could be done by not spending time on questions that they are doubtful of mainly when they have little time in hand. From our experience, those aspirants who pick the best questions during a pressure situation like this would emerge as the champions.
Aspirants would have to ensure to raise their skill level to such an extent that just by skimming through a section, you would be able to isolate questions on the level of difficulty (easy, medium and difficult). Aspirants could save time by attempting the questions by following the easy, medium difficult pattern one after the other.
From the above points, it is clear that aspirants could clear competitive exams at this level if they plan and prepare beforehand in a way that suits them. Hence they should focus on doing their best and leave the results to their destiny.
