Section-wise IBPS Clerk Mains Study Tips

IBPS Clerk Study Plan for General English

  1. To score high in the English Language section, you have to be strong with your English grammar basics. Good knowledge of grammar will help you try questions related to Tense, Active and Passive Voice, Error Spotting, Direct and Indirect Speech, Subject-Verb Agreement, etc.
  2. Building your vocabulary is another critical factor. Learn new words, their meanings and usage. Reading newspapers, books and magazines helps to enhance your language.
  3. Cultivating the habit of reading will help you read faster, and you can fully understand the information they want to convey quickly. Reading will help you quickly answer the questions in the Comprehension Tests, which are asked based on a passage. Reading has to be done regularly to improve your reading and understanding ability.

IBPS Clerk Study Plan for General/Financial Awareness

There are three categories in it:

(i) Current Affairs

(ii) Static GK

(iii) Banking Awareness

Let's read the preparation strategy for each of these categories.

The Current Affairs section includes the present and ongoing events of the past six months in various fields like Sports, Finance, Economy, Business, Politics, Awards, Science and Technology, etc. Read newspapers, current affairs magazines, etc., to prepare for this section. 

However, as this section is very vast, refer to the previous year's question papers to know the pattern of the set questions from a particular event or issue. Notice which type of news they mainly focus on and study accordingly. Don't waste time reading irrelevant articles.

Static GK is based on static facts which will not change. Therefore, for Static GK, it is best to refer to the standard books to enhance your knowledge. Topics like Geography, Countries – Capitals & Currency, History, Indian Constitution, Books and Authors, Inventions and Discoveries, etc., are included in this section. The section has the least weightage, so refer to the previous year's question papers.

The syllabus of Banking Awareness is properly defined. So, it is best to study and memorise the contents under it. The topics included are Types of Banks, Role of Banks, History of Banking Systems, RBI and its Functions, Inflation-Deflation, National Economy, etc. It is recommended to focus more on current affairs and banking awareness since they carry the maximum weightage of marks.

In the General Awareness / Financial awareness section, questions will be based on current happenings (primarily related to the financial world).

IBPS Clerk Study Plan for Quantitative Ability

  1. Solving questions related to basic concepts of Mathematics and formula-based questions does not take a lot of time. So, candidates can easily practice in their free time. It is best to learn the formulae and know where and how to apply and practice.
  2. In the case of Data Interpretation and Quadratic Equation problems, you need to practice and develop analytical skills continuously. You will then be able to solve them with ease once you understand and interpret the data given.
  3. On the other hand, tougher topics like Time-Speed-Distance, Probability, Time and Work, Permutations and Combinations, Mensuration and Geometry, etc., are tricky. These types of questions are very important. First, you need to understand the theoretical background for these topics, then try to know how to approach the problems, visualise the concepts, and learn why and which formula is appropriate.
  4. These problems consume more time. Thus, devote more time to such topics and keep practicing. Getting exposure to more questions of different types and difficulty levels will help you master this section.

IBPS Clerk Study Plan for Computer Aptitude and Reasoning Ability

The basic topics in the Reasoning Ability section are Seating Arrangement, Puzzles, Input-Output, Order and Ranking, Syllogism, Data Sufficiency, Directional Sense, Blood Relations, etc.

  1. Complete the non-descriptive topics that are easy, and go for the puzzles later.
  2. For the puzzles, read and understand carefully, pay attention to the variables involved, practice multiple parameter-based questions. Practice the puzzles regularly to increase efficiency.
  3. For seating arrangement problems, begin by noting down the direct information, be clear with the terms used and their relations, arrange these data and then focus on indirect data to approach the correct answer. 
  4. Developing the habit of making diagrams or doing paperwork is better than solving them verbally. Referring to the books and understanding the logic related to the question gives an idea of how to approach a question to solve it. Books, online study materials, and example/solved questions, will help you understand the question paper easily.

For Computer Aptitude, it is recommended to focus on theoretical knowledge of computer systems, hardware and software and revise them regularly so that you don’t forget. For topics like Microsoft Office, Keyboard Shortcuts, etc., practising on a computer will help. It will help in better retention.
