Preparation Tips For IBPS Exams

The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection conducts a number of bank exams to recruit employees at clerical and officer levels for different public sector banks. The examinations follow a similar format and are characterised by a strong focus on speed and accuracy. Preparing for these exams involves a lot of practice and development of problem-solving skills. Here are a few tips to help aspirants prepare for bank exams conducted by the IBPS:

       Make a Preparation Schedule: IBPS preparation should be done to a schedule. The frequency of exams is high and the time available between the preliminary and main examination is very less. Typically, a candidate should have a 3-6 month plan for covering the complete syllabus.

       Read Newspapers: Newspapers are crucial in preparing for the general awareness part of the exam. National and international news related to business and trade are the main areas one should focus on. The New Indian Express and The Hindu Business Line are considered ideal for bank preparation.

       Understand The Syllabus: The institute does not publish an official syllabus. Online resources can be a great help while preparing for the exam. One should check online resources and study previous year’s question papers to understand the syllabus of the IBPS exam. This should be done early on in the preparation schedule to avoid missing out on important topics.
       Practice Regularly: This is perhaps the most important aspect of preparing for this exam. The limited time available for the examination means that one should be proficient enough to answer questions in a fast and accurate manner.

       Appear for Mock Tests: Appearing for mock tests can be considered a part of practice. Mock tests help aspirants to analyse their level of knowledge and refocus on weak areas. They also provide a good idea of the actual exam conditions in terms of time limits and the number of correct answers required to clear the cutoff score.

IBPS exams are conducted every year, with a very large number of candidates appearing for a limited number of vacancies. Following the tips listed above would help aspirants stand head and shoulders above the competition and secure a banking job.
