Time Allotment & How Much Should You Attempt

Time Allotted
Target Marks
General Awareness
≤ 15 Minutes
Reasoning Ability
≤ 40 minutes
Quantitative Aptitude
≤ 40 minutes
English Language
≤ 25 minutes

The target marks has to be a good one. You simply cannot target a small score. Moreover, its not like SBI PO Mains or IBPS PO Mains. So, you better be aiming high.
On the other hand, the time allotted by yourself can easily be achieved with practice.

How to approach

Which one to attempt first? Well, we recommend to start with the General Awareness. General Awareness is a section which can fetch you a lot of marks. So, If you start with General Awareness, your confidence will boost up. The questions in GA are usually from Current Affairs, Banking Awareness and sometimes stock GKs. So you have the chance to score a lot of marks in the very beginning.

Even if you don’t like GA, you should start off with it. Do not foul attempt (tukka) in the GA section.

Next move on to, Quantitative Aptitude, do the Data Interpretations at first. They are scoring, they can be calculative but with practice and patience and concentration you can achieve the feat.

The do the P&L, Avg and Misc Sums. Then move on to the number series and simplifications, if you are finding it hard, just leave it for the end.

Now, go for English (only if you are strong at it! else reasoning) and do the comprehensions. Comprehensions are the most scoring in English, and you can secure your marks.

Do the Cloze Test after that, and then do the others, again, leave the tougher one for rest.

Go to Reasoning, Do the Seating Arrangements, Puzzles at first if you are good at it. Else go to the easier portions and secure your marks.

You will have a few minutes left for the remaining. If you have confidence, give it a try else, you have successfully secured a minimum 120 for you out of 200(Assuming 25 from each and 20 from Quantitative or Reasoning).

All the best! May the force be with you!
