JK Bank PO Prelims: How to Attempt the Exam

  • No blind guesswork. The number of questions you need to attempt cannot be pre-determined as it is a function of the level of difficulty. Just keep a fine balance of accuracy and speed. Remember that there is penalty for marking wrong answer. Therefore, avoid guess work as much possible. Accuracy is as important as speed in this exam. Try the elimination method to eliminate 2-3 options before making calculated guesses, and refrain from any blind guesswork.
  • Do not get stuck on one question and waste your time. You can always come back to it in case you have time left.

JK Bank PO Prelims: General Tips

Avoid New Topics

Do not start any new topic now. Any new thing that you would try learning now may not properly be retained. Try to revise whatever you have studied till now and get command over it.

Take Mock Tests

Take  mock tests after your preparation to measure your progress. Oliveboard’s Mock tests would provide you instant feedback in the form of analytics, which will help you determine your speed & accuracy in solving questions and identify your strong and weak areas. So practice as many mock tests as you can in these last few days.


Do not take it lightly and leave it for the last day. Revise all the concepts, formula, shortcuts and tricks so that you don’t forget them. Highlight the important points.

Make a Separate Note

Write the formula, shortcuts, tricks, etc. on a separate paper so that you can quickly go through it before the exam.

Time Management

Time is a crucial factor and it is easy to lose track while writing an exam. This is where your practice will show results. Manage it properly.

Speed and Accuracy

Speed and accuracy is one aspect that would outshine your performance. Practicing daily would help you in this regard. Try to attempt maximum number of questions with 100% accuracy to increase your chances of clearing the cut offs.

Read the Question Properly

Understand what is written in the question. Do no hastily skip the question just by looking at it. You might just be able to do it if you read it properly. So, before skipping, read it carefully because sometimes the questions that look difficult, are actually easy to solve, especially Puzzles.

It’s imperative to stay calm and composed. Do not get too excited or too worried. Doing some light exercise or meditation would help you.

Stay Away from Negative Thoughts

Try to stay away from negative thoughts or people that demotivate you. Have confidence that you have given your best & your hard-work will bear fruits.

Eat Right

Take a well-balanced diet. Avoid oily and sugary snacks. Stay well hydrated.

Relax and Rest:

Do not let anxiety ruin your preparation. Keep reminding yourself that there is nothing that you cannot achieve. Make sure you don’t deprive yourself of sleep. Taking proper sleep would improve your concentration and help you remember things easily.
