IBPS Clerk Mains English Language Preparation Tips

Candidates can check the preparation tips to crack the IBPS Clerk Mains English Language sections below:

  • To clear the English section, candidates should keep their focus on RC, Cloze passage, parajumbles and fill in the blanks.
  • The maximum time to be given for the above topics is :
    • RC: 5 minutes
    • Cloze passage: 3 minutes
    • Parajumbles: 5 minutes
    • Fill in the blanks: 30 seconds per question
  • The total time given to the English section is 35 minutes.
  • Aim for solving 30 questions in 35 minutes. If candidates exhaust the time and feel that they can solve the other 10 questions in less than 1 minute (which they may not), be realistic and move on to other sections. They can come back, if time permits, to solve the remaining questions.
  • Candidates would always want to have a second look at the option, just to be sure. DO NOT do it! Trust in instincts and utilise that time for solving other sections instead.
  • While reading newspapers and magazines for preparation, pay attention to the structure of sentences, the words, tenses, verbs and other figures of speech used. This will come in handy while answering questions with 90%+ accuracy.
  • Take daily vocabulary challenges to improve the understanding of complex words in the English Language.
  • For the preparation of grammar, refer to the books of S P Bakshi or A P Bharadwaj.
  • Candidates should give one mock test daily to audit their preparation and measure their improvement each day.
