Exam Review - IBPS PO V Mains 2015

Hello and welcome to ExamPunditSo, according to everyone, IBPS PO Mains Reasoning was way above the expected standard. It caused a lot of panic. We received plenty of reviews and here is the official review of IBPS PO Mains 2015 held on 31st October, 2015.

Reasoning: The chapter turned into a villain within a few hours of the examination. Nobody has claimed that they did well in Reasoning. Most of the reviews suggested that the Puzzles, Input & Output was horribly confusing and took a lot of time. On the other hand, syllogisms, statement & course of actions were moderately easier than the other ones.

The reasoning standard was higher than anyone could imagine. Hence the reasoning test was dissatisfying for most of the candidates.

Quantitative Aptitude: Quantitative Aptitude questions were mostly moderate to expected standard. The Data Interpretations were mostly calculative and some of them were really difficult. The arithmetic questions were mostly moderate to normal standard. The overall Quantitative Aptitude section was comparatively easier than Reasoning.

English: English was mostly moderate for a large number of candidates. However, the Comprehension test took a lot of time. The Cloze test, Para Jumble were mostly moderate. Those who utilised the time in English did well otherwise it was mostly moderate for all.

Computer Knowledge & General Awareness: Computer was easy(in the morning) and moderate(in the day). The questions were basic to moderate and aspirants mostly attempted without any hassle. Similarly, General Awareness was also very easy for almost everyone. The questions were from Current Affairs, Banking Awareness and a few bits of Static GK. General Awareness and Computer had plenty of assured attempts by the candidates.

IBPS is continuously changing its exam patterns and will definitely follow this method in the future. A big round of applause for students who held their nerves and did well. No need to worry as most of the reviews were similar to each other. The average attempt varied between, 93-110 regardless of any Shift or Category.

All the best. May the force be with You.
