Note: Please do not start with Seating Arrangement/ Puzzle type’s questions because once you stuck on this you will lose your valuable time.
2. Data Analysis & Interpretation:
To score good marks in this section, you have to be quick in solving mathematical calculations. You should have good command on topics like Ratio, Percentage, and Average as in D.I. section mostly questions come on the basis of these topics.
Data Analysis & Interpretation mainly contains, Pie Charts, Bar Diagrams, Tables, Graphs, Probability & Data Analysis
It is one of the time consuming section. You have to practice more than 400+DI Sums to become master in it. So better prepare 5 sets of D.I. per day within 30mins.
In exam just attend only those questions in which you are sure to give accurate answer. Don’t do guess work over there. Don’t try to answer all DI questions.
If a DI consists of 5 questions just answer the easiest question first. Don’t do long calculations, multiplications etc..You just leave that and switch over to other question. If we do it confidentially there is no problem in scoring 25+
Note: 1. Have a fair clarity on how to get the right option in minimal time.
2. Have speed in solving this section.
3. Learn the Square till 30 and tables till 20.
3. English Language
SBI PO English paper is tough, if we compare with other competitive exams.Focus on English grammar & its deep concepts like verbs, adverbs, adjectives, noun, pronoun etc. And a good command on vocabulary would help you overcome the questions asked in the paper.
Which questions you should attempt first:
1. Fill in the Blanks.
2. Cloze Test
3. Common Error in Sentence
4. Para Jumbled
5. Passage Based questions
We recommend you to read comprehensions, if you have time at last, because if you are not able to understand in the middle of the passage, your time will be wasted. If you want to answer early, don’t spend too much of time for it. Set some time and follow the same.
Many candidates spend too much time to read passage. If you are not good in reading comprehensions so it is better to skip it. You can answer the questions just by reading the option and eliminate the option by reading the passage.  You will get idea which answer is too close to the question.
We strongly recommend you to learn the grammar part as much you can. If you are good at grammar, you can answer easily within less amount of time.
It is very important in PO exams that you have to know which question you have to leave and which question you have to answer first. There will be 20 questions from grammar section. If you can answer at least 15, you will be in safe zone.

After the test is over, revise all the answers and see where you have made mistakes and what all questions you could have easily answered but couldn’t. This would help you in improving your score in subsequent tests that you would take.
One month before the exam, evaluated your strengths and weaknesses:
This would help you in formulating your strategy for the ‘BIG DAY’. Let say, if I found that I am relatively weaker in English as compared to other sections, I would allocate more time for English while giving the test as I need to score a minimum cut-off marks in English to pass the exam.
We should also not forget that marks scored in the written exam have almost 80% weight age in the final selection. Hence, scoring more is equally important as qualifying all the sections of the paper. So, you need to score as much as you can in your stronger section.
Once you have made your strategy, start taking 2 tests per week in the month before the exam
 Practice, Practice and more practice: Practice makes a man perfect it is said and this is definitely not without reason. More the time spent in practicing, better is the efficiency in the examination. Higher the efforts prior to the examination, better is the efficiency during the examination.
Hence, a serious contender who is keen to land a job in banking needs to put in hours and hours of hard work, which has the ability of providing rewards in multiples.
The practice must be well directed: For any examination, practice has to be focused and in line with the requirements.
A professional guidance in understanding the areas which require practice will go a long way in making one better equipped to crack the bank examination.
Strategies and Plan: It’s better to decide that from which section you have to start the exam before appearing in the exam and how much time you have to spend on each section.
