Make your own plan; know your strength, understand your weak points
Every person has different strong and weak points and you need to identify your strengths and devise your exam plan yourself. Do not blindly go on with the hearsay of peers and friends, think smartly and act smartly.
Devise your strategy
Taking a test can help you in giving that much-needed finishing touch to your exam preparation. Take a mock test and practice your skills of time and topic management before the actual face off. Analyse your performance after the test.
To avoid unnecessary tension, equip yourself with all the necessary documents
This point could not take a back seat in our checklist because it is the foremost thing to be taken care of the sooner the better. Take a print out your admit card and ID proof, and read the instruction of your admit card.
Take 2 trips if you wish, while solving the paper
At first attempt the questions you find easy to approach and solve. Finishing them off will boost your confidence and keep you at bay from any stress. After you are done with all that you could have answered easily, then go for the second trip and try to attempt the questions you feel you can do with a little extra effort.
Be careful while choosing what to attempt and what to skip
Your every move, your every decision will make or break your deal so it is very important that you choose very carefully what you are going to attempt in the examination. Don't be tempted and get engrossed in any particular section or question for too long.
Don't take anything on your ego
Well, it is quite probable you may feel you know the concepts to solve a question just too well yet you are unable to crack it in the exam time, so just skip it, and take another question. Skip a question if you feel it is too time-consuming or you might not be able to get it right, at the end you have to score enough to clear sectional and overall cut off. Let nothing kill your speed! There are 100 questions for mere 60 minutes so keep a track of your time and don't get stuck anywhere.
It is good to be fast and save time when you have 100 questions for just 60 minutes but you have to be wise and careful as well. Instruction or directions of a question are very important and you should read the instruction of every question you are about to attempt.
Do not ignore simple questions; they may require you to be cautious
Simple or easy level of questions can be your saviour in IBPS PO prelims, so don't just get engrossed in the difficult ones. Read the instructions carefully, and attempt simple or easy level questions to gain plus points in your scoring bag.
Avoid making 'silly mistakes', they'll cost you a year
You've been longing for this opportunity to be a probationary officer.
So try to keep at a bay from making silly mistakes. Carefully solve and analyse question, do not presume things, just read the direction and be careful as you will have negative marking.
Get the thought of 'cut-off for IBPS PO Pre' out of your head
If the examination is of an easy level, it will be so for everyone else, so is the case even if it turns out to be of difficult level. Therefore focus more on preparation rather than quivering over the thought of cut off. First, concentrate on the exam and making a decent number of attempts according to its difficulty level. Rest things will fall into places.
So don't overburden yourself and refrain from diverting your concentration.
Keep your calm and be confident
Your confidence will help you sail through this recruitment, easily. No matter what is the difficulty level you'll face in the exam just stay calm and believe in yourself. With a composed mind you'll be able to crack through the examination, so sleep well and don't stress yourself out.
