Dear Readers, one of our IG follower, Mr.Saba has completed his IBPS PO Prelims Examination today (3rd October 2015) Slot-1 and he shared has exam experience with us, and we have posted it here, candidates those who are yet to face their examination can us this.
Guys I finished my exam 1st shift.
Resoning – 31
Maths – 22
English – 15
Attend the section you are strong. My strong section was Reasoning.
So i attended in this order. Reasoning ( 26 mins) -> Maths( 25 mins) -> English ( 9 mins)
Section wise review:
As Expected there was 2 seating arrangement ( Circular and Linear) . I just took 4 mins for circular and 2 mins for Linear.
Circular was tricky bcoz they combined Blood Relationship with it like ( M’s daughter sits second to the right of M’s Father) . If you carefully analyse you can finish it within 4 to 5 mins. Linear was simple with two parallel rows facing each other. don’t get confused between left and right in this problem.
There have 1 puzzle test which was very difficult like 8 people spend certain amount of money in 30 days. P spends on 14th day, Q spends on 16th day etx.. I just left out this section but there was one direct question asked which can be easily inferred from passage and answer.
Syllogism -> 5 qns. 4 qns was easy and 1 was Moderate.
You can easily get 5 questions if you practiced very well
Inequality -> 5 qns. Another easy topic you can get really 5. No complicated conclusion.
Blood relation -> 5 qns. 4 to 5 blood Relation in the form of sentence will be given, 5 questions will be asked. Drawing flow diagram can solve this in 3 to 4 mins.
Simplification -> This was Moderate and not too much complicated just involving +,-,*,/ and sqrt. You could solve this in 5 mins or even less if you are good at speed maths
Quadratic -> 5 qns. Moderate. 2 questions was in the form of ax^2 = C. So you can get 2 questions with ease and rest you should Use formula.
Series -> 5 qns. 2 qns was easy. I attended only 2
DI -> 10 qns. 1 graph and 1 table. Attended only graph type since it was easy. Don’t attend Table if you dont have time as it consumes lot of time.
Misc. -> 1 SI, 1 CI, 1 cylinder problem, 2 probability, 1 Permutation and Combination, 1 Partnership, 1 percentage,etc.. Attend this section at last. I answered 4 qns.
RC -> Due to lack of time i attended only synonyms and antonyms which conntained 5 qns.
Error -> 3 was easy and 2 were difficult.
Para jumbles -> Again due to lack of time couldn’t attend this. Skipping this part is better.
Cloze test -> Moderate. Just mark the answers you are confident. Attended 5 out of 10
Sentence complition with 2 blanks -> Attended 2
If you are good at Either reasoning or quant. Attend atleast 20 to 25. Aim for 50 atleast with 90% accuracy
Our Sincere Thanks toMr. Saba
