IBPS PO and SBI PO – Tips to crack the Probationary Officer Exam

by Jasjot Singh on October 5, 2014


IBPS-POIBPS will be conducting its IBPS PO exam from October 2014. Many candidates will be waiting for the exam to get selected as a probationary officer in one of the 20+ public sector banks which are participating for selecting probationary officers. While many candidates may be fully confident of cracking the exam this time (good luck to them!), many will be nervous about what and how to prepare, since attempting 200 questions online in 120 minutes is no easy feat. But rest assured, we have the tips and tricks for them !!

Just before you think this will be just like any other post available, I would like to inform that I appeared in the IBPS PO exam in 2013 and WAS SELECTED IN PUNJAB AND SIND BANK. I believe now you would love to follow my footsteps. Lets begin.

IBPS PO – Starting Your Preparation

One thing you need to understand is – this exam is just like any other. It is mainly a fight to see how quickly you can break down. The more time you can stay strong, the better chances you have of getting selected.

  • Start by buying a good reputed book for going through the IBPS PO papers of previous years. This will help you understand the pattern of the exam. You can buy this book from Flipkart for this purpose.
  • Start with any of the four topics – Data Interpretation, Quantitative Aptitude, General Awareness or English. I would recommend that you start with data interpretation.
  • Once you are done with one topic, start the next one, in order of which one you find easier, then less easier, then most difficult. This way, you wont be feeling overwhelmed until you are done with almost 50-75% of your syllabus.
  • When you are done with all four, its time to begin the revision.

IBPS PO – Before the exam

Almost one month before the exam begins, I would recommend buying a current affairs book, preferably a reputed one like this one.

  • Most sample papers have unsolved sample papers. This is the best time to start solving them. Get this book for unsolved papers
  • Side by side, I would recommend brushing up your current affairs topics. Many questions asked in the IBPS PO exam in current affairs are so easy, they are like grace marks, provided you atleast read the newspapers.
  • Computer knowledge required is not very high level, but basic. Somehow, many falter at the basic knowledge. This can be a good scoring area if you have basic knowledge of DOS, Visual Basic, MS Office, Network topologies, MS Windows etc.
  • It is also recommended that you relax at this stage and get a sound sleep one night before the exam. Throw down the books and unwind one day before the exam.

IBPS PO – In the exam

Before leaving for the exam, make sure you get all your papers in place (including the IBPS PO call letter, an original photo ID and a photostat copy of them). Reach the exam venue on time.

  • When you are allotted your workstation, do not touch the keyboard. This will also be mentioned in your IBPS PO call letter
  • Enter your details via the virtual keyboard. Remember – do not touch the keyboard at any time before, during or after the exam.
  • It is highly recommended that you take a wristwatch with you. You will be able to partition your time better this way.
  • Always start with the easiest topic of the four. This way, you can secure the maximum marks in the least time.
  • DO NOT attempt your weakest section first.
  • Allot time slots to each topic. Allot max 40 minutes to General Awareness and English.
  • If one section is time-intensive, switch over to the next topic when you have done atleast 20 questions in that topic. You need to qualify in ALL 4 to be selected, do remember that.
  • When you are done with 80 questions, return back to the first topic.
  • DO NOT PANIC. The cut off last year was 63 out of 200, I am sure with your preparation, you can score much more.

I followed this strategy and I scored 85/200 in my very first attempt at an IBPS PO exam. Despite being in a hectic job, I still managed to clear the exam and the interview (more on that later).

Are you feeling motivated enough? Can you do it this time around? I am sure you can. If you have any doubts about anything related to the IBPS PO exam, please drop in your doubts in the comments section below.

i need urgent help plz tell me how mny ques shud i attempt in ga sectn only

Reply

jasjotbains November 25, 2014 at 3:18 pm

Dear Mou

I will tell you one thing. You attempt 18 in GA, I dont even attempt that…the max I have attempted in GA is 16. You can never predict the type of questions in GA, hence I always attempt around 15 to clear the sectional cutoff. My strong areas are English and Computers, and I concentrate on doing extremely good in them. I attempt around 90-95% of the questions in both of them, and they, in a way, compensate for my bare minimum attempt in GA. Try this

kindly please help me..

jasjotbains December 9, 2014 at 1:06 pm

Dear Renuga

You can start preparing for the exam now, but giving the exam at the starting of your fourth year means you may get your joining BEFORE you complete degree. You can get selected ONLY if you have completed your degree, hence, giving it next year seems unlikely

Hi friend,

It’s a very neat, clean and informative post about IBPS PO. I have just one question in my mind.

How does the interview go? Does it require in-depth banking klnowledge?

I don’t have that kind of knowledge about banking industry.

So if I clear the written test, will the interview cause me trouble?

Reply

jasjotbains December 12, 2014 at 5:06 pm

Hello Swarup

Thanks for the feedback. In the interview, they ask you basic questions about banking, about you and your hometown. But they can also go in-depth, but this generally depends on the panel. If your preparation is well, the interview will not cause any trouble.

Cutoff marks in PO are very close to the cutoff, so you will need an exceptionally good interview to clear the total cutoff

Sir. Am in my final year of graduation (bcom computers). I will be done with my exams

by april 11th. Am thinking of starting my preparation for ibps/sbi po from april 15th.

I have a rigorous preparation plan for ibps syllabus and also for other activities

relating to interview like accumulating knowledge about banks,terminology,stock,info about

my state and city etc.

ibps exam is in oct. and i hope rigorous preparation from april is enough.

but i have few questions:

1) is it advisable to not to do a job and just prepare for the exam, or i should do a

job besides preparing for exam.

2)does a bcom computers graduate have good preference by interview panel since i have

knowledge about accounts,finance,banking,insurance. (and ofcourse computers)

3)does a fresher like me with 0 work exp has good chance to impress interview panel.

4)what all activities i should take up to increase my knowledge related to job during the

months of preparation.

5)i want to do mba in banking and finance after few years.so is it possible to go for

mba without leaving the job. like doing 1 year mba besides working.

pls help me.

Reply

jasjotbains March 16, 2015 at 3:24 am

Hello Pranav

Nice questions you have asked here. Let me answer them one by one.

1) is it advisable to not to do a job and just prepare for the exam, or i should do a job besides preparing for exam.

If you have no financial obligations to fulfill, you can prepare for the exams without taking up a job. Unless your job has hectic working hours, preparation can be done in a job too.

2)does a bcom computers graduate have good preference by interview panel since i have knowledge about accounts,finance,banking,insurance. (and ofcourse computers)

There is no such thing as a preference, unless the candidate has a banking background, since training them is easier. But if you know the ins and outs of how banks work, I believe your degree wont hamper your progress in the interview.

3)does a fresher like me with 0 work exp has good chance to impress interview panel.

Most of the candidates have 0 work experience. Impressing the candidates with your knowledge is far easier than having work ex and still not being able to answer their questions.

4)what all activities i should take up to increase my knowledge related to job during the months of preparation.

You can go through the newspapers, the Financial Times newspapers and read books on banking terms. You can increase your banking awareness by this book .

5)i want to do mba in banking and finance after few years.so is it possible to go for mba without leaving the job. like doing 1 year mba besides working.

There are plenty of executive MBA and correspondence courses available. Check with your favourite university for more details.

I hope I have satisfactorily answered your queries. If any doubt remains, feel free to ask :)

pls help me.

Do i need to be tremendously fluent in English for clearing the interviews?what should one do to score good in the GD?how should i answer the questions in order to make an everlasting impression on the interviewer?? How much hours will i have to devote in the preparations??

Reply

Jasjot Singh May 24, 2015 at 3:43 am

Hello Kashmeera
h
You can always opt for local language during the interview and GD if you are not very fluent in English, that is not an issue.
Questions in interview can range from why you want to choose this field to details about your background, hometown, b.com as well as banking sector.
To score good in GD, you need to get all the facts and figures correct for current issues that are going on around the time of your interview.
If your answers stand apart from the crowd, and you add further useful information to the discussion, that will leave an impression in the minds of the interviewers.
Preparation is all in your hands. People can devote months for the interview while some can do it in hours. It all depends on your knowledge.

Hope this helps.

You can start preparing for it any time you want. But you can only get this job if you have a degree, so plan accordingly.
For English, I would suggest you read good newspapers like The Hindu as well as novels and books by reputed authors. You will get a good understanding from the English in those books.

my engineering has been extended to 6 months due to a mass supply in the final sem(PTU Rockss).
iam confident of clearing the exam in December 2015 as i fell short of 4 marks to pass.
1.gave my CAT previous year and got 88.6%ile
2.Gave IBPS PO in 2014 and scored 67 marks. (didnt prepare rigorously for ibps)

**so my question is, to what extent does my degree extention hamper my chances in the interview (would they even consider me for the job??).

Dear Gaurav

I would suggest that you go through the advertisement which gives details on the minimum marks (if required). If there is no such condition mentioned, its upto your own abilities to convince the panel on why they should choose you.

HI sir,
I am a bank po aspirant.
I have passed graduation in 2010.After that I was working in a small IT firm till date.Now I have decided whole-heartedly to prepare for the upcoming Bank po exam.But I have one question that is bothering me?
Am I too old to become a bank po? as these days most of the young graduates apply for bank po are around 24-26 years age while I am nearing 28 years.
please reply my query sir.
I am waiting anxiously for your reply.

Hi

Age is just a number. If you have the passion for it, go for it !! Just ensure that you have not crossed the permissible age.
