    1. Dude nobody knows evaluation process?
      Still i'm also confused how they evaluated these papers having different days and also having different level of difficulties.

      lets see what happens:(

      Delete
    2. Not each question carries equal marks... tough ones have more marks say about 1.25 per question and easy ones have .25, .50 etc...

      Your focus instead of worrying about marking system should be.. on time discipline... and solving of min 120 questions in 120 mins.. the more the merrier.. plzz dont worry that much about marking.. strict time discipline for each section is the essence of the hour.. say 30 min for quant, 35 for reasoning, 15 for gk, 15 for computer, rest english, miscellaneous......

    1. Go for iob po man , it is far better if you have decided to stick with the bank only , but if you want to prepare of some other exam or want a rural posting , which i think must not be the case as you have applied for iob manipal po program , you should go , you will learn a lot many things there and your pormotional aspects after joining in iob manipal will be much much more as you would be trained as well as experienced.
