Dear Readers,

With just 3-4 days remaining for IBPS Clerk Mains, you all must be feeling the heat of the moment. Yes, the First Day Of Next Year will be the Judgment Day for all. We have compiled this article to help you understand the bits and parts of all the Clerical Mains exam conducted in 2016. We cannot rely on last year pattern as the sectional timing has been introduced and pattern of various section kept on changing. This is going to be a battle of 135 minutes and you need to score Max to secure a seat. In preliminary exam, we have observed that cut-offs were sky high and it was difficult for average students to qualify for mains. Let us start our discussion with the structure of examination:

Note: The sequence in the above structure is kept the way it was asked in IBPS PO Mains. We are expecting the same sequence for Clerk Mains as well.

From the above table, it is clear that we have to practice a lot in the same way it is going to be in the exam. You can follow the CP Test Series for that. In fact we have embedded the questions asked in RRB Clerk Mains which was most recently conducted in various parts of India. In fact you can take advantage of the discount offered on the test series. Now coming to the particular sections, we can choose what to take care of. This is the era where we can not leave anything on luck. The only lesson IBPS taught everyone is Not To Expect anything. Every paper had a tragic end leaving all the aspirants confused. Let us talk about every subject that we will find in IBPS Clerk Mains.

Reasoning Ability:
This section has seen a lot of improvements if we compare it to the last year. Puzzle is one of the nightmares that students have been talking these days. In 2016, IBPS has experimented a lot and the analysis only showed that puzzle dominated the sections. Anyone using Career Power Test Series might have observed the change in the level of puzzles fact we have included the RRB Clerk Mains Memory Based for our in the package as an additional test so that they can face the exam like situation.

The best way to attempt this section is to go for everything except Puzzles. In all the videos as well, we have always recommended to attempt the puzzles in the end. Apart from these, you should practice rest of the questions as well because no one knows up to what extent IBPS can go. If you find the paper surprisingly tough then do remember, it will be for everyone. You have to be aware enough to decide what to do and what not to.

English Language:
Calling English a subject would be unfair to all the other subjects. English itself is a huge ocean where you all have to swim and the biggest dilemma is that no one knows where to go and what is safe. In recent times, it emerged as the most dangerous section leaving every banking aspirant shocked. The journey from Old Pattern to New Pattern was quite sudden and most of the students faced difficulty during the examination. After having a look at the level of questions, one can easily understand what IBPS is really searching for in an aspirant.

For English section, we can only say that you need to be good at both Vocabulary and Grammar to score GOOD Marks. In IBPS Clerks, you will get 30 minutes for this section which will be sufficient enough to clear the cut off. If the new pattern questions are asked then go for the selective questions technique and pick the ones you practiced. We have been providing these types of questions in both Career Power Speed Test and Bankersadda. Now its your turn as an aspirant that how you take advantage of those materials. In fact in few days, we will come up with some strategic moves to solve all the new pattern quizzes.

General Awareness:
We have innovated it like no other subject. If you are still complaining about this subject then I am sure that you have not visited our youtube channel which provides the general awareness in a whole new for. Now a days, we are also conducting the live discussion of GA Capsule launched for IBPS Clerk Mains. In the live discussion, you can interact with Faculty in charge and get your answers solved. So friends, I don’t see any reason why you all feeling it boring and tough. Even you can download Adda247 App to attempt the quizzes on the go.

We have already enabled you with a lot of options and the ball is in your court. Now you need to decide which way suits you better.

Computer is one of the subjects where you have to be limited as syllabus is wide and to cover the whole, you need time. Friends, things may change but for the time being, IBPS has been shuffling questions and making nominal changes in the questions asked. Bankersadda is providing you sufficient questions and you can rely on them as far as computers is concerned. We have also provided the questions asked in the recent exams, you just need to observe them and see what IBPS has been asking.

Quantitative Aptitude:
After Reasoning and English, this section has also seen some changes. One of the major change was in Inequalities where quadratic was replaced by other parts of the subject. Questions got transformed and anyone having the basic knowledge of Maths can attempt. Although the presence of DI brings Sigh of Relief. DI is the most attempted question in this section. Every student attempt DI and the question here arises is, What else you attempt after DI?

Well, you need to find the answer of above question and see how much it affects your performance in the examination. Things are same in Quant and you need to practice all varieties again and again. This will enhance your speed as well as accuracy. Rest you all know everything.

Friends, we have discussed each and every section and now we know that we have access to everything.
