Hello Friends,

The First day Third slot of SBI PO prelims exam is over. Here we bring you the Third Slot Analysis which will help you understand the composition of SBI PO Pre exam. There are 3 Sections in SBI PO Pre exam namely English, Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude.

We have seen that there were many similarities in the questions asked in Ist and IInd slot. In this IIIrd slot we have found that the overall difficulty level of the exam was moderate . The pattern of this paper was similar to last year’s SBI PO prelims exam and also to the first two slot's paper today. As the paper was moderate we can say the paper was also very tricky. There were 5 puzzles asked in this third slot just  as the previous two slot papers, that is an important point to note. But those puzzles were of moderate level with a tricky approach i.e. you need to pay attention while solving the puzzles and choose wisely.
The total time is 1 hour, so clearly Speed, Accuracy and Planning is surely needed to have good attempts.

Over-all Analysis:

 Section Level Good Attempts General English Moderate 16-20 Quantitative Aptitude Moderate 18-22 Reasoning Ability Moderate- Difficult 18-23 Overall Moderate 55-60

The analysis is based on the review given by various students across the country. And here is the section wise review:

English
The level of English was moderate as it was in the first two slots today. There was only one Reading Comprehension on the topic related to Empowerment in America (in which there was comparison between the treatment of men and women in working class).
 Topic No of Questions Level Reading Comprehension (Women Empowerment Index in World) 10 Moderate Cloze Test 5 Easy Para-jumbled 5 Difficult Error 5 Moderate Double Fillers 5 Easy Total 30 Moderate

Again Quantitative Aptitude was same as the previous slot. Arithmetic was a little difficult than other topics. DI data was given related to production.
 Topic No of Questions Level Number Series 5 Moderate-Difficult Quadratic Equation 5 Easy Data Interpretation (Bar graph/Table) 10 Easy-Moderate Approximation 5 Easy (Calculative) Arithmetic (profit and loss, partnership, S.I & C.I etc.) 10 Moderate but tricky Total 35 Moderate

Reasoning
As we've seen in earlier slots reasoning is tricky but it is of moderate level. With good accuracy students will score well.There were no coding decoding question asked in this slot and also there were no questions from Syllogism. Just as the previous slot 5 Puzzles were asked and they were tricky as in no direct information can be easily inferred from the directions given in them.

 Topic No of Questions Level Puzzle (North-South 8 People in same line/ Department and Persons and cars/ Boxes and their different colours) 20 Moderate Seating Arrangement (6 Person sitting from top to bottom) 5 Moderate Inequalities 5 Easy Direction Sense 2 Easy Blood Relation 3 Easy Total 35 Moderate-Difficult

So students keep your accuracy good and stay focused as the paper can be tricky. All the best for upcoming slots.
