2. Few Tips to Crack SBI PO 2020 in First Attempt

Respect the time limit per question and pace yourself accordingly

In the SBI PO Prelims, you shall have 40 seconds per question of English Language and 34 seconds per question of Reasoning Ability and Quantitative Aptitude.

When you practice with the mock examinations, try to keep a timer or track of the amount of time you take to finish each question correctly.

In this case, to crack the SBI PO exam in the first attempt, you need to answer maximum questions correctly.

Use the method suggested to track and time your responses and their accuracy.

In the mock examinations, try to strike a balance between being fast and being right, because to crack the SBI PO in the first attempt, that’s exactly what’s needed.

  • Know your syllabus clearly and the kind of questions to expect

To crack the SBI PO exam in the first attempt, you must have a perfect understanding of all the sections and all the topics in each section.

This might sound quite hard, but with the help of proper and consistent practice, it shouldn’t be a challenge.

  • Practice previous years’ question papers.

This goes without saying. While mock examinations from various test preparation series and packs have made it so that you can get the exam – feeling.

But, it is necessary that you practice with the real test papers of the previous years to get the exact conditions as you would when you take the real examination.

This is applicable for both SBI PO Prelims as well as SBI PO Mains exams.

  • Focus on weak areas first, but do not ignore strong areas

This thought often confuses the aspirants. Thinking too much about what to focus on, makes you lose your focus. Your focus on both should go hand in hand.

Want to know your strong and weak areas? Give a free mock test, get the Mock Test Analysis done for you free of cost but spend at least an hour to go through the detailed analysis so that you can proceed accordingly.
