IBPS PO Notification 2024 – Prelims Preparation Strategy

Section-wise preparation strategies for the IBPS PO Prelims exam are as follows:

IBPS PO English Preparation Strategy

Candidates preparing for the English section in IBPS PO should keep the following points in mind

  • This section consists of fill-in-the-blanks, para-jumble, word usage, error spotting, reading comprehension, etc.
  • Usually, around 8-10 questions will be based on comprehension, while the other 20-22 questions will be based on the other topics mentioned.
  • You must prepare for this section by reading regularly. Reading newspapers, editorials, books, etc can help build up your grammar as well as vocabulary.
  • You need to be thorough on the usage of verbs and their different forms, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, etc. in different sentences.
  • For IBPS PO Prelims Preparation, reading at least two articles in the newspaper daily is advised. This can help you achieve a good score in the English Language section.

IBPS PO Numerical Ability Preparation Strategy

Candidates preparing for the quantitative section in IBPS PO should keep the following points in mind

  • Simplification or approximation questions form a very major portion of this section. Remember that the prelims exam is only a qualifying exam for the Mains exam. So, having a fast calculation speed is an important requirement for this section.
  • You should be well acquainted with the multiplication tables and squares and cubes of the first 30 natural numbers. There will also be miscellaneous individual questions based on topics like Profit and Loss, Time and Speed, Time and Work, Simple and Compound Interest, Mensuration, etc..
  • You should be well-versed with the formulas and basic concepts of these topics. Along with these, there will be Data Interpretation (DI) questions like tables, pie charts, bar graphs, case lets, etc. The table or graph will be followed by 4-5 questions based on the data given. The more questions you practice in this section, the better your chances of scoring a good score.

IBPS PO Reasoning Ability Preparation Strategy

free mock tests online

Candidates preparing for the reasoning section in IBPS PO should keep the following points in mind

  • The common topics in the reasoning section are Puzzles (Arrangement based sets of questions), Syllogism, Blood Relations, Coding-Decoding, Inequalities, etc..
  • The basic thing required to answer the questions of this section correctly is understanding the logic well.
  • Read the puzzles thoroughly and note down (or draw diagrams if required) as you do so.
  • Do not rush while reading the question, as a simple or silly reading mistake could lead to the whole set of puzzles getting solved wrong. Practice as many questions as possible to score well in the reasoning section.

Takeaways for IBPS PO Prelims Preparation Strategy

  • Read articles and newspapers regularly to improve your grammar and vocabulary and to score well in the English Language section.
  • Learn short tricks for the Quantitative Aptitude questions. Practice such tricks over and over to get a good grip on them.
  • For Reasoning questions, try to develop tricks for specific topics like blood relations, coding, and decoding, etc.
  • Do not use a calculator while solving quantitative questions even if you feel like it. Using the calculator now can make you unable to solve even easy calculations during the exam.
  • Practice as many questions as possible. Try to develop an understanding of your strong and weak areas so that you can work on them and approach the questions in the exam accordingly.
  • Once you are done studying topics individually, switch to practicing mock tests. Time-bound practice will help you and make you better prepared for the real exam.
