There will be lakhs of aspirants in your fray making the situation very competitive. What’s more! SBI is known to spring surprises in past years and this is another factor you need to take care of. To stay ahead of the competition, you need to put your best foot forward while doing your preparation. And to help you out, we have come with some tips to make the most of your preparation.
Assess Your Preparation by Taking a Free Mock Test
Before starting out with your preparation, you should assess your preparation by taking a Free Mock Test. A Mock Test replicates the actual exam in terms of the number of questions, sectional time limits, difficulty level of questions etc. With the help of the insightful analysis which you get once the test is finished, you get an idea of your strengths and weaknesses. The analysis also provides your rank & percentile to help you understand how much more effort you need to put to be in the top 10 percentile.
Put Extra Efforts on Your Weak Areas
Now that you know about your weak areas, you need to burn the midnight oil to ensure that you don’t miss a chance of scoring marks wherever you can. Even a single mark can make or mar the chance of you qualifying for mains. So don’t ignore any topic. The analysis also tells you which section you have spent unusually high time on. You need to find out the reason and work on it. The analysis also provides detailed solutions to all the questions so that you can review the ones which you answered incorrectly and don’t make the same mistake in the actual exam.
Keep Strengthening Your Strengths
Merely working on your weak areas will not help much. As already mentioned, surprises are common in SBI PO exam. New types of questions basically check your conceptual-clarity and this is where your strengths can help you out. Having crystal-clear concepts will help you solve even new types of questions or questions involving more than one concepts. Moreover, the conceptual clarity will also help you in taking the call of going ahead and solving the question or skipping it.
Take 1 Mock Test per day until the day before the exam
Keeping the above tips in mind and solving sectional tests under controlled circumstances will definitely improve your preparation level to a great extent. Working on the feedback provided by sectional tests is equally important to reach the best of your performance. 20-25 days prior to the exam, start solving 1 mock test on a daily basis and analyze the feedback carefully. This will put you into exam-mode and will boost your confidence in the actual test. Having practised so many mock tests, you don’t need to take any mock test on the day before the exam.
