As mentioned above, you need to give a mock test daily. Mocks is much more than the scores and the percentiles. It is more about strategy making and analyzing your mistakes, things that you could have done better. With mocks you can always try out different things. SBI PO is not very concept driven beyond a point i.e. the exam is tough to crack because you need speed and accuracy to solve it right within a short time rather than the difficulty level of the questions. The questions are doable, it’s just that some questions take much more time. Respect the lengthy questions and don’t attempt at all of these types.

We hope that strictly following the above plan will fetch you enough to clear the cut-off marks.
