Strategy to clear SBI Clerk Prelims: 45 Days to achieve Glory

Dear Readers,


As you all know that State Bank Of India has declared 17000+ vacancies in the Clerical Cadre/Junior Associates for the year 2016-2017. So, to en-cash this golden opportunity, Bankersadda.com has decided to match the frequency needed to clear the Preliminary as well as Mains exam. Friends, cracking any exam would be tough if you don't strategize accordingly. Everyone can think of clearing the exam but only few will clear. It's not because you are incapable. It is because the ones who cleared has planned each and every step. This article will be focusing on the ROADMAP that one can follow. And we assure you that cracking preliminary is no big deal. The real battle will be afterwards. So, we have approximately 45 days left and these 45 days can really turn our world upside down.

The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same. Only difference is that how one change his failure into success.

Let us have a look at the expected pattern. Friends, based on the analysis done at the time of IBPS Clerk, SBI PO Prelim, we have derived a pattern that SBI might bring forward in the upcoming SBI Clerk Preliminary exam. We have not seen any major changes in the preliminary exams conducted last year and we don't think that SBI would do any different. However, the pattern for the SBI Clerk Mains has been altered a bit. SBI has introduced a Time-Locking Technique where a candidate will get locked for that much duration in that particular section. And those who are worried about this should know that it is common for everyone and no one is used to it.

There will be a set of 100 questions from the sections viz.
Reasoning Ability - 35 Questions
Quantitative Aptitude - 35 Questions
English Language - 35 Questions

Each question will have 5 options out of which, you need to select your answer. And there will be a penalty of 1/4 for each wrong answer. The duration of examination will be of 1 hour.

If you genuinely want something, don't wait for it teach yourself to be impatient.
