Time Management Strategy for SBI PO Prelims 2015


Hello and welcome to ExamPunditSo, as you all know SBI PO Prelims is heading your way
faster than the flash, we decided to give you a possible strategy on how to
attempt maximum in SBI PO Prelims 2015. Firstly, you should not give any
examination by targeting cut-off marks. Because, you are not MOSTLY going to attempt
50 and get 50. So basically, it is better to target maximum marks. Cut-off targeting
is the WORST THING a STUDENT can ever do.

Time Allotment:
Everyone has a strong zone and a weak zone, in case you don’t
have any weak zone, you are good to go, and you don’t need to read this post.
Firstly, you have to pick your WEAK ZONE and give it the
time it needs. After that the other two parts will have some time allotted
either equally or in a 60-40 ratio.
So, let’s get started.
In case you
have Quantitative Aptitude as WEAK ZONE, you should try with:

Quantitative Aptitude
 25 Minutes
 20 Minutes
 15 Minutes
In case you
have Reasoning as WEAK ZONE, you should try with:

Quantitative Aptitude
 20 Minutes
 25 Minutes
 15 Minutes
In case you have English as your Weak Zone, then you should
go with either of the Table Q or R, because giving English more than 15 minutes
will cause problem.
Q (Quantitative as WEAK):  
Start off with Either Reasoning or
English so that you do not miss out these while calculating Quantitative
If you are
Good at Reading and Good in English, straight away, start English and Do it
till any question bumps you.
Then go to
Quantitative Aptitude, and start doing the EASY sums (Sums which you will be
able to solve faster). As soon as you are done with the Easy ones and you only
have calculative one in your hand, keep them and go to REASONING.
Start off
with your Strong Zones, I/O or Puzzle or Syllogisms. Similarly do all the problems
which you can solve easily.
Move to
Quantitative Aptitude again and start doing the tough ones. By this time you
should have at least 30 minutes in your hand.
Now, take 15
minutes for quantitative and 15 for the remaining and do with confidence. No
matter HOW TOUGH it is, if you have self-belief, you are good to go!
R (Reasoning as WEAK):  
Start off
with Quantitative Aptitude, and Do the sums which you can solve easily. As soon
as you are done with those, go to English and do all the vocabulary and reading
Now, come to reasoning and start doing with ones you can
solve easily. It will boost up the confidence and kick out the fear. Now, go to
the tough ones (you find) and start solving them. If you are stuck in some question,
pause it and move ahead.
Come back to Quantitative Aptitude and do the rest. Check if
there is anything left.
Note: While
solving English, make sure you are calm as a cucumber. Because, if you are not,
then many of the known things won’t pop out!
In case you have strong Reasoning and Quantitative and
English is a WEAK ZONE, then go for English first, and then go for the other
  • DO Not Think About Cut-off marks
  • Do not think any of your problems during the exam
  • Believe in yourself and you will be SBI PO

All the best.
