"Go for the examination with a decent strategy so that you aren't barking the wrong trees while attempting the examination. Much of stress won't let you fathom out the questions asked in all four of the subjects so avoid anything that can stress you out, keep calm and stay focused," said Mr Anil Nagar.

"It is important for the students to have a positive mindset. The key is to put these nerves to positive use. Perform to the best of your ability," he added. 

He also said that, by going through the memory based paper, you can work on your time management skills as well as the ability to deal with the changed pattern of questions, so that you are able to attempt maximum number of questions in a minimum time period. 

All the best for IBPS PO prelims exam.
