What do you mean by preparation? First thing, any aspirant should do that he or she approaches the exam in a very well-structured manner so that no topic is left uncovered.   He or she should be ready for the exam in every way.

The mental state of the candidate plays a key role in preparation. The more candidate prepares well will have more self-confidence and will perform well on the exam day.


How to prepare for the IBPS Exam?

1- Be clear about the IBPS Exam Syllabus topics and subjects. Must stress on the major IBPS exam topics.

2- The reasoning is a scoring part where you can easily score good marks to push your overall score too high. This section is less time consuming if you solve paragraph puzzles with full concentration. The more you practice, the more you will have accuracy and speed. Mock test practice is best in the reasoning.

3- While preparing for the English section, the first thing you do is to read the passage with maximum speed. Try to practice difficult and tricky questions first, and then go for easy ones. You should practice English speaking like writing. You can make use of sentence diagrams. Try to learn the parts of speech thoroughly. For vocabulary read newspapers and magazines. You can also use flash cards. When it comes to verbal ability, identify the theme of each jumble to get an easy solution.

4- Numerical ability includes questions from Profit & Loss, Average, Simple & Compound Interest etc.. There are good banking guides available in the market. Keep on solving them. Revision is important in this section

5- Time management is the most important. Concentrate on the section which you’re most confident first in the exam day. Later on, proceed for the more difficult sections.
