SBI PO MAINS 2015: The Analysis

Dear Readers,
The D-Day has arrived.
Today, the first SBI PO MAINS 2015 was conducted all over India in different
centres. It comprised of 200 questions with 4 sections and was followed by a
descriptive paper. So what are we waiting for, let’s discuss the pattern in
detail.

 Section-Wise Analysis

Reasoning Ability
Questions
from Course of Action, Cause and Effect, Data Sufficiency, Statement and
Argument, Higher Reasoning, Input & output, Comparison of rank, Syllogism,
Puzzles, all formed a part of this section. Puzzles were difficult,
Input/Output was also difficult but Syllogism was doable, Critical Reasoning
was easy. The overall difficulty level of this section was moderate.
General Awareness/Computer/Marketing
This
section consisted of questions from Static G.K. (Banking), Current Affairs,
Computer Awareness and Marketing. The Questions were mainly from the current
happening of 3-4 months but also included some static questions. The Marketing
questions were analytical and the computer part was doable. Overall this
section was easy.
Data Analysis and Interpretation
This
section was heavily dominated by the questions revolving around percentages.
Questions from Line Graph, Bar Graph, Pie Chart and Table were asked in this
section. Questions from Quadratic Equations were there. As compared to the last
year’s SBI PO Exam, this section was lengthier and more difficult.
English Language
Overall
this was moderate. The section comprised of questions based on
Antonyms/Synonyms, Error Spotting, Reading Comprehension, FIB (2 blanks),
Para-jumbles and Cloze test. The difficulty level of the Reading Comprehensions
was difficult to moderate.  The 10 blanks cloze test was a tad bit
difficult. The difficulty level of Error spotting, FIB and Para jumbles was easy
to moderate.

Part B- Descriptive paper:
The Descriptive paper
includes just two questions, one was Letter Writing & the other was Essay
Writing. It was mainly based on the current happenings of the world. The
descriptive paper was a real test for the students as they have to type their
answers.
So
overall it was a great but tough experience for the students, as this will help
them to prepare very well in the upcoming Banking Entrances.
