There will be two questions; 1 on essay writing and 1 on letter writing. Address the topic from differing viewpoints and cover various aspects. Also provide details, examples and explanations.

How well the topic has been understood and explained is main criteria of evaluating any piece of descriptive writing. Make sure you address each of the following while developing any essay.

3. Practice Mock Tests

As you might have observed in the revision plan, attempt as many mock tests you can in these last few days. With this, you will not just improve your knowledge but will also get used to the exam pattern.

I utilised almost 10-15 Mock Tests of Oliveboard and trust me, nothing beats it. It is the most indispensable source that any candidate must stick to throughout their preparatory period. I cracked almost 6-7 exams back to back and this was made possible majorly with the help of Oliveboard Test series. So, I suggest this Test Series to everyone who is seriously preparing for any of the exams.” – Shivam Tiwari (Cleared IBPS PO)

5. Have you built your time strategy yet?

Time management plays an important role in IBPS and other competitive exams. If you are not being able to complete your mock attempt in the given time, you should try to improve your speed.

With regular mock attempt, you should be aware of your strengths. Attempt questions from those areas first. Build a time strategy and implement it during mock attempts to stay confident for the actual exam.

6. Don’t go for any new topics

Do not try to learn any new topics in the last few days. First, you will not be able to learn it well. Secondly, you will end up wasting valuable time that you could have invested in revising or practicing important topics.
