  • Aspirants need to maintain about 90% accuracy in the examination to crack this.

  • There is a need for the aspirants to devote time to all the four sections in a planned and practiced manner in order to clear the sectional cut-offs for each while maximizing your overall score.

 

Some important tips for preparing BOB PO Written Test:

 

1. Easy Method for preparing Quantitative Aptitude:

  • Start From the Basics:

For the BOB PO exam, there is no set syllabus that aspirants can follow, in general. But if any particular test appraises you with the topics included, then you should stick to that. Otherwise, it is always suggested to go back to the basics of Mathematics, It is very important to cover all the basic topics from the academic syllabus.

  • Work on fundamentals:

Make sure your fundamentals are clear. The basic concepts of all the topics involved should be clearly understood. Take guidance from your mentors if you are stuck on any particular topic. Never leave any topic, even if you think it seems relatively unimportant, as any question can be asked from any topic. Always revise the concepts, whenever possible.

  • Practice - Practice -Practice:

Most of the entrance exams have Quantitative Aptitude as one of the papers. Solve all the possible previous year's papers and get the model papers of these exams. This will help to get yourself familiar with the pattern and structure of the questions set. The key mantra to success is extensive practice and speed.

  • Take a well planned systematic approach:

Solve the practice questions topic wise and attempt the entire paper. In the beginning, you can always solve the problems using conventional methods. But as your practice increases, aspirants should focus on various shortcut methods to increase speed. Always know the conventional or basic method before you switch to the shortcut model.

  • Remember important formulas, theorems, tables, and shortcuts:

Quantitative Aptitude has a lot of formulas, theorems, tables and many more things to refer to. Write down the critical ones that you need to memorize on an easily accessible place like write it over a paper and paste it on your wall. This can help you a lot in the long run. you can glance at the formulas or important topics at any time. Practice a lot to get yourself familiar with them. 

Like practice some square root or cube root problems to resolve or solve quickly during the exam.

  • SPOT Analysis - Mark strong and weak sections:

SWOT analysis is required. While solving the problems of different sections, try to analyze the topics that you are really strong in and also the ones you need more practice. Work on your weaker areas, and get a decent hold on it.

Work on your strong areas and gain more command over them. So that you can save good solving time there.  Take guidance from your, mentor, or senior to gain the required knowledge.

  • Read the questions very carefully:

Always remember understanding the question is the key to solving the question. Read the questions very carefully so that you thoroughly understand it properly before attempting. A slight misinterpretation/misunderstanding of the question can cost your exam or rank.

 

2. The easy way of preparing Reasoning:

  • Topics covered under Reasoning:

  • Syllogism

  • Seating Arrangement

  • Puzzle

  • Input-Output

  • Inequality

  • Data Sufficiency

  • Coding-Decoding

  • Blood Relation

  • Ranking

  • Direction

 

Some more important topics to note down to get prepared for reasoning:                   

  • By practicing mock tests frequently we can try to score good marks and so you can at least get cutoffs.

  • After practicing work on your weak areas.

  • Go for easy questions first so that you can save time. Time management is important.

  • First try to attempt Inequalities, Coding, and Decoding, Alphanumeric symbols which is comparatively easy than others.

  • After that attempt Syllogisms, Blood relation, Input-output and finally attempt Puzzles, Seating arrangement, Logical Reasoning.

  • Don’t spend more than 45 minutes in the reasoning section. Leave the questions which you can’t attend.

 

3. Tips for preparation of General Awareness:
 

  • Topics covered under General Awareness:

  • Physical Geography

  • Indian and World Geography

  • Indian and World History

  • International Organizations

  • Everyday Science

  • Awards and Honors

  • Indian Economy

  • Indian Polity

  • Constitution

General Awareness section may have a lot of topics to cover but at the same, it also promises you of right answers unless you are attempting blindly and it is also very less time-consuming. If you guys are preparing properly with the above-mentioned tips in mind, you will definitely be able to crack this section with good marks. So, mug up facts and then revise properly so that you can get back the information quickly when required. Some more important topics to note down are:

 

  • Finish the Syllabus First:

You have to finish the complete syllabus without leaving any chapter. However, keep in mind that you need not be an expert on this subject. Therefore don’t go into more detail while preparing for it

  • Revise as Much as You Can:

While learning for General Awareness you will go through lot of different topics, so you can’t keep all the topics at your fingertips. So keep on revising as much as you can.

  • Keep A Fixed Time for Revision Every Week:

Have one or two days for revision of what you have read in the past week or in the same week. This will help you in keeping information memorized in an effective manner.

  • Take Mock Tests as Many as You Can:                                        

Once you are done with the syllabus and revision, start taking tests even if they are only GA tests. It helps a lot if you face a lot of questions before actually facing the questions in the examination.

  • Solve Previous Year Papers Without Fail:

It is a very common trend in SSC that questions get repeated from previous years and it is especially helpful for the GA section. Hence, solve the last 10 years papers of SSC Exams without fail before you step in to write the actual examination.

 

Tips for the English Language:

  • Read newspaper daily

  • Learn about grammar rules

  • Improve Vocabulary

  • Listen to podcasts

  • Listen to some songs and try to sing along with it.

  • Learn more words and their meanings

  • Do lots of reading
