As the IBPS Clerk Mains 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. The level of every other section is only getting complex and convoluted, there is no doubt that this section too will be making your blood run cold. But 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. Here is the strategy on how you can attempt the maximum number of questions with accuracy, in the Quantitative Aptitude Section.

The total number of questions asked in this Section in IBPS Clerk Mains Examination will be 50. The trick to make the grade in Quantitative Aptitude Section is pretty easy. Choose to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations/ Inequalities (Quantity 1, Quantity 2), Simplification/ Data Sufficiency/ Approximation, and Number Series first. The total number of questions based on these topics will be 10-15. If we talk about the previous year Examination of IBPS Clerk Mains, there were 5 questions on Data Sufficiency, 5 on Number Series, and 5 on Quadratic Equations. There can be questions on Simplification/Approximation and Inequality too. So, this is how questions are framed on these topics. Attempt at least 12-13 questions because this part is the easiest. After having attempted all these questions efficiently, go for Data Interpretation/ Caselet. There were 10 DI questions in the previous year IBPS Clerk Mains Examination so we can expect 15 questions on DI this year (as the total number of questions in Quant Sections has increased from 40 to 50 this year). There is a possibility that a Caselet can be asked along with 2 DI's. One should try to attempt at least 10-12 questions as 3 out of every 5 questions in a DI are doable. Attempt questions based on Arithmetic in the end. There were a total number of 15 questions from miscellaneous topics in IBPS Clerk Mains 2016, so, we can expect 15-20 questions from this portion this year. At least 6 questions from Arithmetic Section too will be easy to solve, so, try to attempt at least 11-15 questions within minimum time.

Students, Quantitative Aptitude is a section that can scare you out of your wits but do not forget that it can prove to be very scoring as well. The only way to score satisfactory marks in the section is strenuous practice. Work hard and everything will come up roses in the end.

All the best for Mains Examination!!
