Banking & IBPS EXAM STRATEGY

Banking exams prep strategy & tips

 

You are here that means you r pretty serious about your career …I am glad to have u all here..

As we know IBPS is going to conduct prelims & mains this year so we need to prepare accordingly.

But don’t worry syllabus remains same (SBI NO CHANGES)… Prelims will have fewer questions than mains & it will be qualifying  nature … & u know what is good thing about it …???

Mains will be conducted in a single day so competition remains same for everyone.

Pattern as per 2014 ( It might be same for Mains this year also )

Prep Strategy

This is the chapter which actually requires least prepration & it yields very good return .

  • Ø If you see the glass of water half full with water & half with air then u are going good.
    • If you see the Glass of water HALF EMPTY : It is called Pessimism
    • If you see the Girl instead of the Glass :  It isGuy-ism !!! 

  Check the Below Picture.
Now,  if you say that the Glass is Completely Full???

reasoning-glass-concept


Well, welcome to our concept..... It is called REASONING. 

For remaining sections of the competitive exams like Aptitude, Current Affairs, Computers and English.. .. Application of your prior knowledge is enough. But for reasoning, along with the application of your previous knowledge, you should use some logic too... You should think beyond the label.  The Reasoning is probably the most important section of the bank exams because Most of us face problem in this section as we find it difficult to finish the section on time. 

 We often confuse to decide whether our answer is correct one or not. What is the problem here? Lack of practice. In your home you sit and try to solve some problems. You do 2 or 3. Later you feel that those are very easy and you don't even need preparation for them. SO our suggestion to you is, please don't underestimate any topic. Prepare well. 

PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE !!!

 One needs to understand the nature of question first from previous year question paper

• Develop the skills of time management to make themselves prepare for solving questions in a speedy manner
• More and more practice of previous year and model question papers will be helpful
• Online test would be a better option to judge your speed in solving reasoning section

2. English Language

English pattern po

Prep Strategy:-

This section is most crucial part of Banking exam prep, actually many students lacks in this section.

And this is the section in which most students receives misguided guidelines…

I have seen in many groups/Coaching students that they always focus on grammar., Error correction and you know what is worse part of it ???

Basically it denominates only 5-10 questions…

So we need to do what??

Actually we need to shift our focus on Vocab, Passage, and Rearrangement.

Which actually cover the section.

If we see only Vocab covers – 15-20 questions, Passage-7-15 questions, Rearrangement – 5 questions.

Vocabulary Development - 7 points- MUST READ IF YOU WANT TO BE GOOD IN ENGLISH.

1.It is like entertainment ,entertainment, entertainment- Read, read, and read. The more you read -- especially novels and literary works, but also magazines and newspapers (specially for banking)-- the more words you'll be exposed to. As you read and uncover new words, use a combination of attempting to derive meaning from the context of the sentence as well as from looking up the definition in a dictionary.

2.Keep a dictionary and thesaurus handy. Use whatever versions you prefer -- in print, software, or online(i will recommend Dictionary.com ) . When you uncover a new word, look it up in the dictionary to get both its pronunciation and its meaning(s). Next, go to the thesaurus and find similar words and phrases -- and their opposites (synonyms and antonyms, respectively) -- and learn the nuances among the words.

3.Use a journal. It's a good idea to keep a running list of the new words you discover so that you can refer back to the list and slowly build them into your everyday vocabulary. Plus, keeping a journal of all your new words can provide positive reinforcement for learning even more words -- especially when you can see how many new words you've already learned.( Very important for PO PASSAGE )

4.Learn a word a day. Using a word-a-day calendar or Website -- or developing your own list of words to learn -- is a great technique many people use to learn new words. This approach may be too rigid for some, so even if you do use this method, don't feel you must learn a new word every day. Find some word-a-day Websites at the end of this
session.( RIGHT KNOW YOU SHOULD GOOGLE IT)

5.Go back to your roots(WORD ROOTS). One of the most powerful tools for learning new words -- and for deciphering the meaning of other new words -- is studying Latin and Greek roots. Latin and Greek elements (prefixes, roots, and suffixes) are a significant part of the English language and a great tool for learning new words.

6.Play some games. Word games that challenge you and help you discover new meanings and new words are a great and fun tool in your quest for expanding your vocabulary. Examples include crossword puzzles, anagrams, word jumble, Scrabble, and Boggle. (Find some word-game Websites at the end of this session )

7.Engage in conversations. Simply talking with other people can help you learn discover new words. As with reading, once you hear a new word, remember to jot it down so that you can study it later -- and then slowly add the new word to your vocabulary.( Never be shy ...remember it...no one is born with fluent & good English)

Reading Comprehension

In general,  IBPS  aptitude tests have 10-15, questions on Reading Comprehension’. Mastering this section is difficult, but not impossible. Try following few tricks to improve your RC score.

Speed reading techniques & important websites

I. Speed reading is a useful and valuable skill- Many people read at an average rate of 250

words per minute. This means that an average page in a book or document would take you

1-2 minutes to read. However, imagine if you could double your rate to 500 words per

minute. You could zip through all of the content in half the time. You could then spend the

time saved on other tasks, or take a few extra minutes to relax and de-stress. Another

important advantage of speed reading is that you can better comprehend the overall

structure of an argument. This leads to a "bigger picture" understanding, which can greatly

benefit your work and career.

II. Eliminate vocalization or sub-vocalization- As you read (sounding out the words either out

loud or in your head). Instead of reading word by word, read in chunks of words, or even full

sentences. Don't reread text that you have already read. Doing so will only disrupt your

brain's flow and will slow you down.

III. Practice, practice, practice- you have to use your skills on a regular basis

o Choose easy material to start with – when you begin speed reading, don't use a

challenging textbook.

o An English newspaper should be read daily. Start with the front page and other

news which you find interesting. But the objective should be to start studying

‘Editorial’ section of Newspaper as fast as possible. In fact it may take you a

minimum of 3-4 week’s time before you reach a stage that you can start reading

Editorial section of the newspaper.

o Check www.wikihow.com to discover various speed reading techniques

o www.eyercize.com/practice/read/– is a free online speed reading tool that can help

you become an accomplished speed reader.

o www.ireadfaster.com– is a speed reader designed to improve online-reading skills. It

flashes the provided text as chunks at a specified rate. It helps to increase your

reading speed by practicing your eyes, reducing sub-vocalization and eliminating

regressions.

o How to Read Better and Faster by Norman Lewis:

This is a book that

teaches readers not just how to read faster, but also techniques

that can help them retain what they have read. Speed reading techniques are not just about

counting how many words an individual can read in a minute. To actually read something states that

it is important that the person understands what is being read.

Some sample examples on Reading Comprehension questions can be as follows:

 Let us assume that this document is the one on which your comprehension abilities are to be

judgedJ. So here come the questions now:

 Q. Which of the following helps you in improving your vocabulary?

a. RAM Cards

b. EPROM cards

c. Flash Cards

d. IQ cards

The correct answer is ‘Flash Cards’.

Q .For improving which skill does one need to ‘Eliminate Vocalization’ ?

a. Verbal ability

b. Reading Comprehension

c. Grammar

d. All of the above.

The correct answer is ‘Reading Comprehension’.

 

Sentence correction

 When you read the sentence that you have to correct, please ensure that you first divide it into its components - main clauses and subordinate clauses/phrases. Ensure that you spot and correct errors in each component. Look at the placement of the subordinate clauses/phrases and see if that needs correction. Look at the connectives ( relative pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions) to see if they need correction. Then reassemble the sentence and check it against the choices that you have.

Practice in this manner will give you the familiarity that will help you combine this process with choice elimination, so that you get quicker at dealing with such questions.

Sentence correction questions ask the student to recognize and correct one or more of possibly erroneous grammatical structures, mainly (but not exclusively) of the following types.

Agreement
This refers to the consistency required among elements within a sentence.
There are two areas of agreement: nouns with verbs and with pronouns, and pronouns with verbs.
Noun-verb agreement: Singular subjects take singular verbs, whereas plural subjects take plural verbs.
For instance - “The number of applications has dropped.” (It would be incorrect to say: “The
number of applications have dropped.”)
Pronoun agreement: A pronoun must agree with the noun or pronoun it refers to in person, number, and gender, and if the subject of a verb, the verb needs to correspond in the singular or plural.
For instance - “When girls cry, they break your heart.” (It would be incorrect to say:”When girls cry, she breaks your heart.”)

Parallelism
Just as a mathematical equation needs balance, a sentence, too, when presenting ideas that contain different elements, must have parallel construction so that these elements balance each other.
For instance - “To listen to someone is to pay attention as you hear them.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “To listen to some one is paying attention as you hear them.”

Verb Form
Errors with the use of verbs may occur in the absence of agreement or parallelism (discussed above). They may also occur in the use of tenses, use of transitive/intransitive verbs, and use of modal auxiliaries
Some examples of the correct uses of tenses -
He prayed at the temple yesterday. (Simple past)
He prays at the temple every day. (Simple present)
He will pray at the temple tomorrow. (Simple future)
He was praying at the temple (past continuous) when I met him.
He is praying at the temple now. (Present continuous)
He will be praying at the temple (future continuous) at the same time tomorrow.
He had prayed at the temple (past perfect) before it was closed to the public.
He has prayed at the temple (present perfect) and is now on his way home.
He will have prayed at the temple (future perfect) by the time you meet him tomorrow.
He had been praying at the temple (past perfect continuous) for an hour before he was disturbed.
He has been praying at the temple (present perfect continuous) for more than an hour now.
He will have been praying at the temple (future perfect continuous) for over an hour by 6 pm tomorrow.
Some examples of the correct uses of transitive / intransitive verbs -
He eats apples. He plays tricks. (Transitive, similar to – He cuts wood. He hates work.)
He eats heartily. He plays carefully. (Intransitive, similar to – He sleeps soundly. He works late.)
Some examples of the correct uses of modal auxiliaries -
He can climb that hill. (Doer's ability)
He will climb that hill. (Doer's intent or responsibility undertaken)
He shall climb that hill. (Responsibility placed)

Comparisons
Forms of comparison and comparative terms have precise constructions and applications. Students should ensure that they use them appropriately.
For instance – The differences between 'fewer' and 'less', 'further' and 'farther'; the need for
'between...and', 'more..than'; and so on.

Modifiers
Students should be able to recognise whether modifiers are positioned where they clearly relate to the thoughts they are meant to modify. If not positioned clearly, they could cause illogical references, inappropriate comparisons, or distortion in the meanings of statements.
For instance - “He drove around the village, in a green shirt, looking for a pharmacy.” This
SHOULD NOT be written as “He drove around the village looking for a pharmacy in a green shirt.”

Grammatical Construction
Students must guard against improperly formed constructions such as those indicated below.

Fragments are parts of sentences that are disconnected from their main clauses.
For instance - “He's not wearing his shoes because he has hurt his toe.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “He's not wearing his shoes. Because he has hurt his toe.”

Run-on sentences are those in which independent clauses come together without proper connectives or punctuation.
For instance – “She hasn't gone to the office today; she isn't feeling well.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “She hasn't gone to the office today she isn't feeling well.”

Diction

When answering sentence correction questions, students should pay attention to the conventions followed with the use of words, and should chose those that properly and effectively reflect the intended thought.
For instance – Among/between. Among is used to refer to relationships involving more than two objects. Between is used to refer to relationships involving only two objects. Therefore: “The four thieves divided the loot among themselves.” (It would be incorrect to say: “The four thieves divided the loot between themselves.”)
Another example – As/like. When we use 'as' to mean “in the form of”, it's a preposition. In its other use it's a conjunction of manner followed by a verb. 'Like', on the other hand, is generally used as a preposition, and therefore is followed by a noun group. Therefore: “He commands respect as a teacher” would mean that he is a teacher, while “He commands respect like a teacher” would mean that he's being compared to a teacher.
And another – I/me/myself. “I” would always be the subject of the idea (“I hit him”); “me” would always be the object (“He hit me”); “myself” is when action carried out by the subject affects the self (“I hurt myself”).   ---- and so on.

Logical Predication

Students should be able to identify structural errors that render sentences illogical or ambiguous.
For instance - “Some believe that Communism was a very relevant ideology when it was born in the 19th century but has lost considerable ground since the breakup of the U.S.S.R.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “Some believe that the birth of the ideology of Communism was very relevant in the 19th century but has lost considerable ground since the breakup of the U.S.S.R.”

Idiom
Inappropriate or incorrect use of idiom would indicate unfamiliarity with idiomatic expression (such as idioms, phrasal verbs, prepositional phrases, correlative conjunctions and the like). Though idiomatic expressions are based more on convention or tradition than on conventional grammar rules, they are standard expressions and it is important to use them correctly.
For instance - “Having rested adequately overnight, the rallyists were able to resume driving at first light.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “Having rested adequately overnight, the rallyists were able to resume driving when they first saw light.”
Another example - “She lives in that small house on the corner.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “She lives at that small house by the corner.”
And another - “He advised us to read not only 'Julius Caesar' but 'Macbeth' as well.” This
SHOULD NOT be written as “He not only advised us to read 'Julius Caesar' but 'Macbeth' as well.”

Rhetorical Construction

Students should be able to identify constructions that are wordy, redundant, awkward, imprecise, or unclear, even if apparently free of grammatical errors.
For instance - Wordy, redundant constructions - “The meeting was cancelled for lack of quorum.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “The reason the meeting was cancelled was because there was lack of quorum.”
Another example - Awkward, imprecise, or unclear constructions - “When she entered the house, she dropped her briefcase, picked up her baby, and took her out into the sun.” This SHOULD NOT be written as “When she entered the house, she dropped the briefcase, picked up her baby, and took her to the sun.”

 Once in a while, say, once or twice a week, take one of the larger paragraphs from what you read and treat it as a grammar exercise - examine different aspects of grammar and the role they play in sentence structure - one day look at subjects (whether nouns or noun phrases/clauses), one day at verbs, one day at modifiers, one day at prepositional use, and so on.  This will really help, since you'll build familiarity the same way that you do with vocab.

3. Quantitative Aptitude

Quant pattern po

PREP STRATEGY :- First of all work on basics , improve your speed Mathematics

Stage-1

 Symptom : 1)Do not recall the theorems from geometry, mensuration, algebra ,Arithmetic etc.

2) Have to use pen to calculate tables upto 30, squares upto 30, cubes upto 20, square roots upto 20 and cube roots upto 12.

 Cure: 1) Learn the tables upto 30, squares upto 30, cubes upto 20, square roots upto 20 and cube roots upto 12. It is shameful if the answer to 17*7 does not come instantly to your mind.

2) Solve the basic QA material - . Don't waste a lot of time, try to finish in 3-4 weeks. Skip questions which seems solvable. Like ( what will be the interest on p=100 r=5 % t=2 yr)

3) Maintain a notebook of all the formulas.

Stage-2

Symptom : 1) Basics are clear. 2) Speed is slow.

Cure: 1) Solve questions mentally, without using pen. It will take time for the effect to be visible but is the single most effective way of improving speed.

2) Never get into the trap of vedic maths. Waste of time and low ROI. Moreover, it takes time to become a habit .

Stage-3

Symptom : 1) Basics are clear.

 2) Speed is decent.

3) Low accuracy.

4) No clue in 5-6 questions, even after dedicating time to them

Cure: 1) Practice a lot.

2) Do not have any weakness before one month of exams I repeat, do not have any weakness. Be prepared to solve a seater from any topic.

3) Solve last 5 year papers.

4) Solve previous year papers  and analyze your performance.

Let us look into DI (Same strategy for SBI PO)

Know your enemy :- 15-20  questions spread over 4-5 sets two of the sets will check calculation acumen and will involve operations on big numbers One of the sets will check visual acumen and will have charts and graphs. Last two set may be from Set theory/Venn diagram or anything generic. Three  of the set will be very easy, other two will be moderate. At times, one set can be very tough.

Stage-1

Symptom :

1) Have no idea of basic charts eg: pie charts and graphs eg: line graph, bar graph etc.

2) Calculation speed sucks.

Cure:

1)Solve basic DI material of any coaching institute/books/online sets

 Stage-2

Symptom : 1) Basics are clear. 2) Speed sucks.

Cure: 1) Learn the art of approximation and mental calculation. The ratio and proportion chapter of Arun Sharma /R S AGARWAL QA will help a lot in this. Google some article to know more.

 Stage-3

Symptom : 1) Basics are clear. 2) Unable to solve all questions. 3) Low accuracy.

Cure: 1) Solve last 5 years papers. They have all possible DI sets and have good questions.

 2) Then practice mocks and sectionals.

So my final suggestions on QA are:-

1) Never panic. EXAMS is all about nerves.

2) Do not have any weakness BEFORE ONE MONTH OF EXAMS

3) Don't waste too much time on solving tough questions. Specially on threads /groups where the competition is - who posts tougher questions and who solves it faster.

 4) Keep your basics clear.

5) Not learning from mistakes is suicide.

6) Read the question very carefully. Half of the mistakes are because of not understanding the question properly.

4. General Awareness - 

 

Current Affairs 

This would primarily focus on all news based items from various fields like sports, awards, summits, new appointments, obituaries, Indian Defense, etc. Please be thorough with newspaper, preferably "THE HINDU".

 

Banking Awareness

History of Indian Banking Industry - (Pre Independence, Post Independence, Nationaliszation), Structure of Indian Banking, Types of Banks (Scheduled, Co-operatives), categorization of Bank (Pvt, PSU, Foreign), NHB, SIDBI, EXIM, NABARD, IDBI its role etc and concept of NBFC.

  • Regulatory Bodies- like – RBI, (RBI History/ Functions/ Roles/) SEBI, IRDA, PFRDA, FSDC, FMC etc its role functions and fact based details
  • Monetary & Credit Policies -who decides, basis of change and its relation with Inflation and other related issues & Inflation (Types) CRR/ SLR/ Repo/ Re-Repo/Bank Rate etc.
  • Budget Basics and Current Union Budget – Discussion of Budget related terminologies like GDP, Fiscal Deficit, Various kinds of taxes, Government revenue model and spending etc. and discussion on Union Budget 2014. Also major pointers for Rail Budget and Economic Survey to be read.

  • Capital Market & Money Market – Concept, Types of Instruments they deal in like (1. Call/Notice Money 2. Treasury Bills 3. Term Money, 4. Certificate of Deposit 5. Commercial Papers or Capital Market Instruments like equity Shares, preference shares, or Debt segment like Debentures etc also talk about Stock Exchanges in India and world.
  • Government Schemes – All important schemes for ex. Bharat Nirman, Swavlamban, Swabhiman , All schemes discussed in budget - the details like when was it introduced, important facts related to same, budgetary allocation etc.
  • Abbreviations and Economic terminologies - Frequently discussed in newspaper  
  • Other important concepts like – BASEL, Micro Finance, Base Rate, Negotiable Instruments, Credit Rating Agencies, Financial Inclusions, Teaser Rates, GAAR, Priority Sector Lending and all other important concepts.

Prep Strategy :_-  

This is the most important & scoring subject of Banking exams as it has a pattern-

As I discussed the syllabus & expected no. of questions from each topic …so here is a question – i.e HOW?

  1. Make a notebook of current affairs
  2. Jot down the current affairs section wise like  appointments, visits , schemes etc..
  3. So you can revise it in one go

Static G.k

Capital ,currency

Asian country Heads

Recent country in news – Heads

Stock exchanges

Folk Dances of States

Important Organization Heads & Headquarters

Banks & their Heads, Headquarters, taglines

Awards

Books & Authors

National parks & sanctuary

Thermal power plants, Dams,  Nuclear power plants

Budget, Census

Important Abbreviations

Etc

5. Computer Knowledge -

Computer syllabus po
 Prep Strategy:-

Basically it has static questions on basics…so just study the above mention chapters.

Revise regularly last 5 year questions

Buy any MCQ books of BSC/ARIHANT /MAHENDRA’S/KIRAN Publication.

Resources:-
Books- Wren & martin for English Grammar., word power made easy by Norman Lewis, 30 days to more power full vocabulary .

A mirror of common errors by A K Singh

MATH & reasoning - R S Agarwal & BSC publication

G.A- Follow- gktoday.com

E mahendras, Bankers adda, ibpaprepadda

Banking & marketing - Buy BSC books/Arihant Books

For practice- buy previous year paper book by BSC Publication

Logical reasoning & data interpretation by Arun Sharma (Highly recommended for SBI PO)

Another tips- BUY at least 2 online mock exam series ...bcz u can't count on one institution...

Will suggest- one from BSC & one frm Mahendras

Give at least 1 mocks in a week if u are beginner & 3 mocks if you are preparing for more than 3 months

And give 2-4 hrs on each mock to analyse ... n solve all questions...after result

Another tips- Search for Math & reasoning topic wise video on YouTube

Participate in group events

Read The Hindu news paper...try to read online...it will help u a lot... jot down the words make your own word list …find antonyms & synonyms ….make sentences …..n make sure that u revise it time to time

4.Now got the books ….now what ????

  1. Plan your study schedule such that you finish the entire syllabus or the most part of it at least two months before the date of the exam.( In this case by July )
  2. Try and study all the  subjects every day rather than picking up one subject a day or per week. Divide time between the subjects and then continue your studies on all  fronts.
  3. Read Novels and articles online for building stamina on the screen.
  4. Take a break in between and try to stick to your schedule.

5.WAY AHEAD

You are saying that finish the syllabus two months before – Why so??Wink

It’s because of the next aspect –  ”Full length at per Mock Exams. ”

What are mock exams?

These are exams exactly on the pattern of the IBPS & ACTUAL paper which students around the country give to assess their capabilities and preparation level.

Which all institutes provide these tests?

All most all the major institutes! We recommend that you join two test series of which one should be of Mahendra’s & BSC .Why Mahendra’s & BSC  ?- because we get money…..LOL .. we don’t get paid for anything we write here but the reason is that maximum number of students join this series and the quality is at par with other institutes, if not better. Since a large number of students are giving their test series with a more even span throughout the country, you get a better picture of your performance.

Why 2 Mock Series then?

Though BSC has a great test series, there is one thing that other institutes are doing better right now in our opinion. What is that you ask? It is “The post exam analysis.”

You can see this for yourself once you give the free MOCK of Test Funda/Bankers ADDA/ Mahendra’s . The post exam analysis with in depth info via charts and interactive mediums is just fantastic which is not the case with BSC.. They have analysis tools .

Why are these post exam analysis important?

Ok…this is where the 2 month early finishing comes in handy. Understand this thus

2 month before – Finished with my syllabus. This is how it follow from here:

1) Monday – You give the exam

2) Tuesday – You get the result and start analysis. Ideally, if the mock takes 2  hour, you should spend 4 hours while analyzing. You start analyzing the questions you did, did not do and which you did but got wrong and see the reasons to it.

3) Wednesday – You start revising the weak areas that the analysis has projected. You may have done all topics but somehow you are not able to solve questions of Geometry and Grammar properly/ OR WHATEVER  (as per the analysis) so you prepare Geometry again.

4) Thursday – You give smaller tests like skill builder and Total Gadha free tests/ TCY ONLINE FREE TESTS/OTHERS options while revising Geometry and Grammar in specific and other areas that you feel like in general.

5) Friday – You continue to do Geometry and grammar chapter from BOOKS .

6) Saturday – Give more smaller 20 minutes tests of Geometry and grammar and a few others.

7) Sunday - Break !! Now you have revised your weak areas in particular and ready to start the next week with your flaws covered.

Rinse, repeat and follow !! Then again the same routine. This will allow you to prepare for the test in the best possible manner and you can amend the flaws in your preparation. Of course, you can vary the schedule as per your conveinience.

 Few general tips :-

Minimum 5,000 Vocabulary (new data bank) required to prepare.

Daily two hours required to study newspapers and Editorials. (English)

Read at least two magazines, one novel each week.

Try for the shortcuts of mathematics. Calculations must be strong.

See any type of graph in any where you find, try to interpret that as fast as possible.(Specially for SBI PO)

 Change your attitude. Make one decision strictly. And only try for right decision or don’t answer in case of ambiguity.

 Read whatever you love. But try to read on different subjects articles.

Before two months of IBPS EXAMS , Daily solve any sets/sectional sets .

Try to make logical sense everywhere.

Try to solve calculations mentally.
