Exam Review - SBI Clerk Prelims - 28 May, 2016

Hello and welcome to exampunditOn the second day of SBI Clerk Prelims 2016, we received a little less reviews than previous week. However, it was sufficient to provide a consolidated review for you all. A special thanks to disqus ID Bahubali, Sourav and Domino for providing a detailed review.

Exam Review – Like last week, it was easy all over. The only thing that bothered the aspirants is the time. The English was overall very easy. There was no lengthy problem in English. The comprehension, cloze test were very basic. Anyone with basic knowledge could easily attempt a lot. On the other hand, there was No Syllogism this week also. The reasoning test was easy. Quantitative Aptitude, comparatively was little time consuming. It was mainly due to some of the sums were lengthy. The problems in quantitative aptitude were easy but some took a few seconds more.

Average Attempts – The average attempts varied from 76 to 85 regardless of any shift, state or category.

Trending Topic – Similar to last week, the trending topic was #TimeManagement. So it is upto you to manage the time properly.


Verdict – It is better to start with the problems that takes a little time to solve. Do not spend too much on one problem. Move on. Here are some points mentioned by Bahubaali –

Note :
1. Level of exam is overall same as ibps clerk except math word prblms.. english errors( jo english mei mere jaise hain unke liye.. baakiyon ko to easy hi lga hoga . lolzz).

2. Dare to attempt word problems only if time permits.. and also do it at very last. They r complex & time consuming in nature.

3. Dont take any question on ur ego. Chahe wo maths ho ya reasoning.. maine ek reasoning+ek maths(simplification :DD)  ko ego pe liya.. & wasted 3-4 valuable minutes.. aur wo bna v nhi.. simplification ka shayad answer wrong tha option mei..

4. Forget everything in exam hall.. be urself.. utilize time very well(it will be the key factor).
