SBI PO Mains : Reality Check Analysis
SBI PO Main Exam is over now across India. The Overall level of the exam is difficult
Reasoning – Difficult
REALITY ANALYSIS : Students are very much used to solve a pattern of puzzles be it circular , floor based , parallel row . No doubt every exam have these questions as well . Students depend upon the websites / coaching material/ test series too much hence they are lacking in solving unexpected new questions . SBI has turned the table by giving CAT level questions.
4 questions from Inference
4 questions from statement and assumptions
3-4 questions from decision making
I have shared two figures based on which 5 questions each were asked
2 questions from blood relation
2 questions from directions
One puzzle in which 6 months and date 2 dates mentioned
Coding questions also did in which SACRED is coded as first 12 even number (which is multiple of 4 respectively
English – Difficult
REALITY CHECK :
All websites / coaching says that one should read newspaper / develop vocabulary , but SBI provided language which needed to be understood very well. Student had to read multiple paragraph to find answers which were logical. Again a CAT + UPSC civil services decision making pattern type questions . Student need to change the way of stagnant thinking.
5 questions from double fillers in double sentences.
5 questions from phrase replacement
5 question were to identify the summary of the sentence given in bold
5 questions were error detection
5 questions from re-writing the sentence without changing its meaning.
10 questions were from 2 reading comprehensions
Quant – Very Difficult
Most talked section , DI . We are used to for pie chart , bar graph , line graph and missing DI .
Mostly students in Quant section attempt a set pattern that is ( NUMBER SERIES , QUADRATIC EQUATIONS , DI which all was already checked by SBI in prelims ) . Students just couldnt handled new way of DI which had inbuilt qualitative aptitude concept . Hence this section was an eye opener for all. That we need to fuse question upto a level of complexity
3 DIs based on Partnership – Missing data, Time and Work – Line Graph, and Boat and Stream – Pie Chart
One question based on acute angle
One question based on the area of a parallelogram
Few questions were from Probability
Data sufficiency questions were based on various topics like probability, Partnership, Integers etc.
Remember, Accuracy does matter and the Data Interpretation section has the worst feedback. So if you are wondering, what to do with your below average attempts, don’t worry! It does not matter if you have attempted 80 or 55 as long as your accuracy is high. Negative marking plays a big role in these exams. So keep calm and focus on your next target.
