SBI Clerk Mains 2022-23 – Last Minute Tips & Revision Strategy

1) Get Familiar To The Question Pattern and Timing 

Sectional Timing format can be a huge relief for many as they do not need to think of how much time to spend on each section, but one should still get used to taking a long test that will go as long as 2 hours 40 minutes. Also, even if you have finished one section much ahead of time, you cannot jump to the other section until the specified time for that section is over.

Hence, your speed and accuracy should be adequate in all the sections of the exam. One  way to get used to this is to take timed online tests in the new pattern. Earlier you could do a timed test on paper as well but with different rules, different marking schemes and different sectional times, taking online tests in the last few days is a better utilization of time.

2) Check and Focus on Weak Areas On Last Time Before Exams

After taking a few mock tests, figure out the areas you are unable to score or the topics in which you have low confidence. Practice only those for a day or two. Once again, you can find your areas of weaknesses with Oliveboard’s AI enable mock tests giving you a complete view of your strengths and weaknesses in a single dashboard.

3) Take Mock Tests during the same time as your actual exam

Each one’s mind is active at different times during the day. To ensure that your mind is active during exam time, take mock tests during your exam slot so that your mind is trained to be alert during your exam.  For example, if your exam is between 9 am-12 noon, take the mock tests at that time only in these few days. Also, try not to sleep at these timings till the exam so that you do not feel sleepy at the time of the exam.

4) Do not start a new topic now

In these remaining days, it is advisable to focus on the topics that you are already acquainted with. Starting a new topic at this point of time can make you nervous and thus affect your confidence level.

5) Do not study too much 1 day before exam or on exam day

The SBI Clerk Mains is a long test – longer than any previous Bank Exam. In these an active & fresh mind will ensure you are in the best frame of mind to solve quicker & better. To achieve this, do not study too much leading upto your exam and get at least 8 hours of sleep before the exam day.
