IBPS PO 2017 Last Minute Preparation Tips for Mains

It has been a tradition in IBPS PO Mains that the questions are based on the same set of topics, i.e. Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning and English Language. Apart from these, there is a new addition in the form of a descriptive paper which also needs some focus. Following is the paper-wise strategy that you might find useful:

English Language:

  • Do not spend more than 15 minutes in this section.
  • First focus on the comprehension, then set your focus on other sections as per your comfort zone.
  • Never aim for all questions, attempt only those which you are confident about.
  • For descriptive paper, stay updated with current affairs and don’t give up on reading long paragraphs or passages.


  • Spending 20 minutes in this section will be enough.
  • You need to hit the targets accurately as maximum marks can be achieved from this section.
  • Time killing topics pertaining to data sufficiency, coding-decoding and syllogism must be targetted first.

Quantitative aptitude:

  • This section should not take more than 25 minutes to finish.
  • Since this section is a tough nut to crack, be prepared to target the least difficult of all questions from this section such as data interpretation and number series.
  • Make use of shortcuts to save time.

Remember the following beforehand as a way to prepare at the last minute:

  • Revise meticulously not haphazardly
  • Don’t delve into new topics, stick to your strengths
