SBI PO 2017: Preliminary Exam Paper Analysis, Expected Cutoff

New Delhi:  State Bank of India concluded the last of the preliminary examination yesterday. The dates for SBI preliminary examinations were April 29, 30 and May 6,7. Now that the last phase of the preliminary exam is over, we can develop a better idea of the overall difficulty level of the exam and the expected cut off for the preliminary exam.  The exam was conducted in four shifts on both days and was considered to be moderate to difficult in nature. The questions were not much different from the questions asked in the April 29 and 30 sessions. 

The previous sessions were marked by easy to moderate level difficulty level, while the recently conducted exam sessions fell in the bracket of moderate to difficult. The cut off, hence, is expected to be a little on the higher side than last year. 

Here's the overall analysis for SBI PO Preliminary exam conducted on May 6, 2017 and May 7, 2017. 

Difficulty Level: The Quantitative ability section was moderately difficult on both days. English language was easy to moderate and reasoning was moderate to difficult. The overall difficulty level was moderate. 

Good Attempt: 18-20 correct answers in English section could be considered a good attempt. Since reasoning section was a little difficult 15-18 correct answers could be considered good attempt. In quantitative ability section, an attempt of 19-21 correct questions can be considered good. An overall attempt in the range of 55-59 questions could be considered a good attempt.

Expected Cutoff: The expected cutoff for English language is 9-12, for reasoning ability section is 9-10, and for quantitative ability section is 10-12. The overall cutoff may range between 48-55.
