Strategy for IBPS Clerk VI Mains – How to Score Maximum Marks?


Hello and welcome to exampundit. So here is the last minute strategy for IBPS Clerk VI Mains Exam which will definitely help you to score maximum marks. The strategy is provided by our mentor Ketan Thakur.

Before preparing any strategy for an exam,
One needs to go through the structure of the exam.
No. of questions
Maximum Marks
Allotted time
20 mins
General Awareness
25 mins
30 mins
30 mins
Quantitative Aptitude
30 mins
135 mins

What is obvious from above structure is that there is no need of time
management in this exam since all the sections are allotted time beforehand and
there is nothing much you can do about it.
There is no jumping from one section to another or to commence with your
favourite section.

Also there is no pre-defined sequence of sections as they will appear in the
exam. So you need to be ready to solve whichever section pops up in front of
your screen and try to complete is reasonably well in the time allotted for
that particular section.

SO THE BIG QUESTION HERE IS :- Is there NO NEED for any strategy for such exam

Well the answer is YOU WILL STILL NEED A STRATEGY in the form of DOs and

Here we begin.. Lets go!!

1. Computer

à Just attempt the questions of which you have 100% surety.
à You may attempt the questions in which you are confused between 2
options, Go with your GUT!

X Don’t try to guess the answer.
Negative marking will pull you behind in the competition
X Don’t attempt the question in
which you are confused between 3 or more options. RUN AWAY!

NOTE: 20 Mins is too much for attempting 40 questions of Computers. You will be
done attempting 40 questions in 10 mins at best. For the next 10 mins, Just sit
idle with your eyes closed or your brain will force you to guess some of the
questions which you haven’t answered and this may lead to negative marking.

2. General Awareness

DOs and DON’Ts same
as Computer section.

NOTE: 25 Mins is again too much for this section. You will be done with this
section in 15mins at best. Please don’t guess the answers for the questions you
have no idea about. Negative marking will take away your hard earned marks from
total score.


à Select your question sets wisely. Ideally one should start with
Fillers/Cloze test followed by error detection/sentence correction. Para jumble
and Comprehension should be attempted last in the order.
à Take your time to read and understand the question carefully. This
will increase your accuracy significantly. There is sufficient time allotted
for this section.

X Don’t attempt the question if you
are confused between 3 or more options.
X Don’t start with para jumble or
comprehension as it might lead to more consumption of time

4. Reasoning

à Start with Syllogisms, Inequalities, Blood Relation, Direction
sense. Puzzles, Data sufficiency and Critical Reasoning should be last in the
order of attempt as they tend to consume more time.
à Although time allotted is not sufficient for this section, I’d
still advice you to take your time to read and understand the question
carefully. This will increase your accuracy significantly.

X Don’t commence this section with
puzzles. You might end up wasting time trying to solve difficult puzzles only
to find there were easier questions that you could have done in lesser time.

5. Quantitative Aptitude

à Start with Simplification/Approximation, Number series, Quadratic
equations followed by Data Interpretation.

X Word problems and Data Sufficiency
tend to consume more time. Avoid them until last if you have some time left.

That’s all from my side. All the very best.

The Power is in your hands. Be the Miracle.
