It is often found that candidates do not take Revision seriously. But you should understand that revision is as important as your Preparation journey. It not only help you recollect and retain everything you have learnt so far but also boost your confidence on the final day! So, before starting with the Indian Bank PO Revision Strategy let’s glance through the exam pattern first.
Indian Bank PO Preliminary Exam Pattern
|Name of the section||No. of Questions||Max marks||Duration|
|English Language||30||30||Composite Time of 1 Hour|
Few important points to note from the pattern are:
- Speed is critical for success in the exam as 100 questions are to be answered in 60 minutes. This translates to roughly 36 seconds per question.
- There are no sectional time limits. Hence, one has to have a proper time strategy in place, the objective of which should be to: Clear sectional cutoffs first and then maximise the overall scores.
Indian Bank PO Revision Strategy
Do not take revision lightly and leave it for the last day. Revise all the concepts, formula, shortcuts and tricks so that you don’t forget them.
- Divide these 10 days as follows: 6 days (2 days / section) + 4 days.
- In the first 6 days, keep 2 days for each of the three sections. Keep the last 4 days aside for lighter topics such as: revision of calculation shortcuts or formulae you need to memorize.
- The trick to scoring marks in Quantitative Aptitude Section of Indian Bank PO is to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations, Simplification and Approximation first and then going for Number Series. Hence, work on strengthening these topics.
- Revise topics that form the base for other topics and then move on to higher-level difficult topics that require you to have a knowledge of these base topics.
- For instance, most Quantitative Aptitude topics require you to apply concepts of Interest, Percentage and Profit & Loss. Therefore, start with what are called the base of Arithmetic section: Percentage, Profit & Loss and Interest.
- The DI questions are known to be calculation intensive. Hence, make sure you practice at least 5 sets every day.
- For English, preparation involves building and strengthening grammar basics. Re-read the notes you’ve prepared.
- Also practice at least 5 RC passages every day.
While doing the above-mentioned things, it is also important to attempt at least 1-2 mocks in a everyday and spent some quality time analyzing your attempts. Devise a strategy on the following three points: –
- Order of attempting various sections
- Time to be spent on each section
- Number of questions to be attempted
Understand that all the 3 things mentioned above are dynamic and vary from person to person, or sometimes even paper to paper, based on the difficulty level. Understand, that the goal is to clear the cut-offs first and then to maximize your overall score. Apart from the subject knowledge, your time management skills play an equally important role in the exam. Taking Indian Bank PO Mock Tests will provide you with a situation where you can practice making such important decisions, and thus be better prepared for the actual exam.
