Just 5 Days are left for RRB PO Prelims | Last Minute Strategy to Score in RRB PO Exam

Dear Readers,

Dear students, now that the time has come for you to face IBPS RRB PO Prelims, you need to gear up your preparations. Here are a few tips on how you can finish your preparation for the exam.

First, keep yourself updated with the pattern as well as new changes introduced in the pattern of examination.

  • IBPS introduced prelims examination last year for RRB PO and only two sections were asked in the exam, Numerical Ability, and Reasoning Ability.
  • One cannot expect the same pattern this year too as the pattern of all the banking examinations has changed dramatically this year.
  • The difficulty level of the IBPS RRB examination has never been too high, but this year, as new changes have already been introduced and the difficulty level of all other bank examinations has only raised, you can expect difficult questions in prelims as well as mains examination too.
  • IBPS releases state-wise cut-off for RRB PO. Last year's cut off was comparatively high, possibly the highest in 2016, as the questions asked were of easy to moderate level.

Second, make your own plan for Quant and Reasoning

As the IBPS RRB Exam is approaching, many of you must be anxious about the Quantitative Aptitude Section. Students, worrying about things is not an option. Stay positive as once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results.

  • One should not forget that a mix of accuracy and a good number of attempts can definitely turn the situation around in Quantitative Aptitude Section.
  • The total number of questions asked in this Section in IBPS RRB PO Prelims Examination will be 40. The amount of time that you need to spend on the Quantitative Aptitude Section is 25 minutes. 
  • Choose to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations/ Inequalities, Simplification/ Approximation and Number Series first. 
  • One should try to attempt at least 10-11 questions as 3 out of every 5 questions in a DI are doable. The time limit for DI's should be 10-12 minutes.
  • Attempt questions based on Arithmetic in the end. There were a total number of 10 questions from miscellaneous topics in IBPS RRB PO 2016. 6 questions from Arithmetic Section too will be doable, so, try to attempt at least 5-6 questions within a time limit of 5-6 minutes. 
  • The number of questions being asked on puzzles ranges from 60-65% of all the questions in Reasoning Section.
  • The other important topics to be prepared for IBPS RRB Examinations are Syllogism, Logical Reasoning, Inequality, Data Sufficiency, Blood Relation, Direction and Distance, Ranking, Alpha-Numerical, Direction Sense, Blood Relations, etc.
  • Puzzle is the most significant part of Reasoning Section as the number of expected questions from this topic is 15-20.

Third, make sure not to leave any important topic untouched or any concept unclear.

Fourth, keep practicing with test series.

  • Practicing with Test Series helps you ace the original tests/examinations.
  • You can identify what topics you are good at and where you lack.
  • Computer based Test Series for IBPS RRB PO also help you save your time as they simulate the real tests and let you know you how to attempt the questions in a way that you are able to attempt the maximum number of questions within the given time limit.
  • It also gives you an All India Rank so as you can assess where you stand and how much more you need to work.
  • Adda247 test series encompass a range of questions that match the level of frequently asked questions, previous year questions, and new pattern questions for RRB Prelims as well as Mains Examination.
