As you can notice, the IBPS SO study plan recommends taking mocks intermittently throughout the course of your preparation. It is so for the following reasons:

  • Taking mocks in the beginning would help you gauge the level of your preparation and would help you strategize your further preparation accordingly.
  • While taking mocks it’s advisable to work on your attempt and question selection strategy. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses would be useful in devising these.
  • Taking mocks will also help you assess your speed and accuracy levels and will help you get accustomed to the duration and pattern of the test.

Analyzing Mocks – How to do it properly

In the study plan, mock tests are recommended almost every day, especially towards the end. Analysing mocks is as important as attempting them. Unless you analyse your performance, your preparation strategy won’t be fruitful. Here’s how to analyse mocks properly.

  • Review the Wrong Questions. Find where your concept or approach went wrong. Click on Review Wrong and this takes you through solutions of only the wrong attempts.
  • Attempt the Un-attempted ones. You can take an un-timed test of only the Un-attempted questions in the mock test. Click on Review Un attempted and this allows you to attempt all the ones left unanswered.
  • Review the Correct Answers. Check if there were better solutions or approaches to the one you adopted.
  • Practice tests from your Weak Areas. Oliveboard’s Adaptive Engine figures the top three areas that you need to work on the most based on your performance data and gives you lessons and tests on those topics. After each mock test, find new lessons + tests on your weak areas by visiting theImprove section.
  • Analyse Graphs. These are detailed reports on your time spent & accuracy section-wise, along with bench-marking reports on your score and percentile.
