How To Clear IBPS PO 2017 Prelims Cut Off


How To Clear IBPS PO 2017 Prelims Cut Off


A day after tomorrow many aspirants will appear for IBPS PO Prelims Exam and this is the time for you to add a finishing touch to your preparation. 
We all know how SBI PO Examination 2017 blew everyone's mind this year with new pattern questions. Well, IBPS too has introduced changes in the Mains Examination Pattern and it now looks similar to the pattern of SBI PO Mains Examination. But if we talk of the pattern of Prelims Examination, then, to your relief, the pattern is still the same.

Students, as far as the IBPS PO 2017 Prelims Examination cut off is concerned, it entirely depends on the number of vacancies declared and the complexity level of questions asked. The overall cut off for Prelims Examination of 2015 and 2016 were 37.25 and 47.50 respectively. As the difficulty level of every other examination has only been rising, there is no doubt that the level of IBPS Examination too has to rise. 

Quantitative Aptitude

Quantitative Aptitude Section has always been giving heebie-jeebies to the students, many of them are bundle of nerves while attempting this particular section. Well, this is a fact that this section can be very difficult and time-consuming. Data Interpretation and topics from arithmetic section make it hard for one to deal with the section as easily as any other section. But students, you can't ignore the fact that this very section can prove to be very scoring as well. The only way to ace the scores in the section is strenuous practice.

The trick to ace Quantitative Aptitude test is to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations, Simplification and Approximation first and then you can go for Number Series. The total number of questions on these topics will be 15. One should try to attempt at least 12 questions in not more than 8 minutes. After having attempted all these questions efficiently, go for Data Interpretation. As per the previous year pattern of IBPS PO 2016, the number of questions based on DI in 2017 Examination will be 10 i.e. 2 DI's, each holding 5 questions. In every DI 3 questions are always doable and the rest two are a bit tricky and calculative. So, one should try to attempt at least 6-7 questions out of the total 10 questions within 10 minutes. The remaining 10 questions will be based on miscellaneous topics like CI & SI, Time and Work, Pipes and Cisterns, Partnership, etc. 6 out of these 10 questions too will be doable and one should try to finish them within 7 minutes. If we observe the pattern of Quant Section of IBPS PO Prelims 2016 and SBI PO Prelims 2017, it's the same as described. So, one can be very sure that same is going to be the pattern of IBPS PO 2017 as IBPS follows the pattern of SBI only. This is how you have to wind up with the Quantitative Aptitude Section. The average time to be spent on this section should be 25 minutes. Practice continuously, it will pay big time.

The sectional cut off for Quantitative Aptitude Section in 2015 and 2016 were 7.75 and 8.25 respectively.

Reasoning Ability

This section is no doubt going to make your blood run cold with a great number of puzzles and the number can be as great as 55-60% of the total number of questions in this section. You literally need to practice quite hard if you genuinely wish to ace the grades in this particular section. 

The trick to attempt the maximum number of questions in minimum time is to attempt the difficult puzzles in the end. Start with the questions that are not in the form of puzzles, you can choose to start with questions based on inequalities, direction and distance, syllogism, coding decoding, alpha numeric series, and other random topics. Then try to start with puzzles that appear easy to be solved and proceed with moderate and difficult puzzles in a similar way. You can choose to leave an extremely difficult puzzle but do keep it in mind that it is just impossible to overlook puzzles as the expected number of total questions based on puzzles is 20-24. And yes, do read the question very carefully, you can miss a few important points while solving puzzles and mark a wrong answer too. So, this is how you have to manage to attempt this section. Make sure that the time that you spend on solving this section doesn't exceed 20 minutes.

The sectional cut off for Reasoning Ability Section in 2015 and 2016 were 11.25 and 8.50 respectively.

English Language

This topic can be easy as pie if your basics are clear. A habit of reading an English Newspaper can actually do a good turn because it helps to build up a strong vocabulary, effective knowledge of grammar, and efficient comprehension skills. Rest depends on how hard you practice.

The trick to scoring in English section can vary from one person to another depending on his/her strengths and weaknesses. If you are good at vocab and reading then attempt the reading comprehension first and proceed with Cloze Test and other miscellaneous topics like Error Detection, Para Jumbles, Phrase Replacement, Double Fillers, etc. But if you are good at grammar, attempt Reading Comprehension in the end. The Reading comprehension too should be attempted in a way that you attempt questions based on vocab and phrases first and then the questions that need a deep penetration through the paragraphs. The important topics for cloze test are subject verb agreement, preposition, and verbs. These topics may help you some other questions too that will be based on grammar. So make sure that you have these topics on your finger tips when you are to attempt the examination. This section should be finished within a time limit of 15 minutes.

The sectional cut off for English Language Section in 2015 and 2016 were 7.50 and 7.00 respectively.

So students, we hope this article proves to be helpful to you all. Do bear it in mind that there is an overall cut off too. So, do not just concentrate on clearing sectional cut off of every different section, try to perform to the best of your ability in every section so that you are able to clear the overall cut off too. Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret to success. 

Best of luck!!
