IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims Preparation Tips 2022

About Exam

Candidates must have a thorough understanding of the IBPS RRB Assistant Office exam pattern, and it will aid in their preparation for the same. The examination is divided into two parts: Preliminary and Main. Because the exam patterns for the prelims and mains are different, candidates should plan their IBPS RRB office assistant preparation accordingly.

IBPS RRB Office Assistant Preparation Tips for Reasoning

When it comes to reasoning, it is usually better to start with the questions that can be answered quickly and in the area of expertise and then go on to the more time-consuming ones. Candidates can determine this by taking IBPS RRB Office Assistant Mains Mock Test.

  1. Note the conditions at a point in the puzzle/seating arrangement when reading the passage, i.e., if one condition is related to some person/thing and another condition is also telling about the same person/thing. Make a list of all of them in one place. State all the conditions and then assemble the puzzle/seating arrangement. This would save time and lessen the chances of getting incorrect answers in the IBPS RRB Office Assistant exam.
  2. It's crucial to recall the alphabet's position in the Alphabet sequence. In the Alphabet series, concepts like EJOTY and VQLGB will simplify locating any letter's place.

EJOTY is a notion that describes the location of the alphabets starting from the left end and counting in 5 letter intervals.

In terms of coding and decoding, the questions in the IBPS RRB Office Assistant prelims are quite simple. If a surprise occurs, the word will be encoded in letter code with one letter, one number, and one symbol, which could be the first or last letter or the previous/following letter of the supplied first/last letter, as given above and so on. In the numerical code, this could be the number of letters, vowels/consonants, the face value of the first/last/middle letter of the word, etc.

IBPS RRB Office Assistant Preparation Tips for Numerical Ability

Candidates must memorise a vast number of formulas for the Numerical Ability section. As a result, navigating this section is challenging. It will get easier for candidates over time if they comprehend the formulas and solve a lot of practice questions simultaneously. As a result, candidates should take care of the following things:

  1. a) When learning a new chapter, they should write down all the formulae.
  2. b) Complete practice questions with increasing difficulty levels.
  3. c) Mark questions that are difficult to solve and rewrite later.
  4. d) Go over the formulas frequently.

When it comes to numerical abilities, it's usually advisable to start with the questions that candidates can answer quickly and then move to the more time-consuming ones. They can figure this out by taking practice tests. However, starting with a quadratic equation, then a number series, and finally DI and Miscellaneous is preferable. They will present quadratic and number series questions in the IBPS RRB Office Assistant test that are easy to moderate and can be solved quickly.

Exam Taking Strategy

On the day of the exam, candidates must follow the below-mentioned instructions:

  • Before the IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims exam, keep a clear mind, and avoid overeating on exam day.
  • Remember to bring the IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims call letter and a valid picture ID.
  • Arrive at the exam centre at least one hour before the exam is scheduled to begin. Candidates who choose to arrive at the exam centre at the exact time of the exam may face unexpected challenges due to their haste.
  • Find the assigned seat using the roll numbers mentioned and take it before the exam begins.
  • Maintain complete silence throughout the exam since any applicant detected engaging in inappropriate behaviour will be penalised.
  • At the IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims exam centre, candidates cannot carry any electronic devices.
  • Candidates are forbidden to bring papers to the IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims test centre.

Detailed Study plan

  1. Quick Revision for IBPS RRB Office Assistant: Creating Short Notes while studying topic-specific principles, don't forget to jot down any tricks or formulas that are observed.This can be handy for a thorough last-minute review of all topics.
  2. Take the IBPS RRB Office Assistant Mock Test: It will help candidates manage time and analyse their performance:
  • Every day, attempt two to three mock tests and go over the entire analysis of those papers. Candidates can also take alternate approaches to the questions while practising mock papers, such as those listed below.
  • When it comes to reasoning, start with the puzzles/seating arrangements, then coding and decoding, singlets, and so on, and then go on to the other topics the next time. As a result, candidates will be able to determine the topic they want to begin with and the sequence they would like to complete the exam. In the quantitative section, attempt the DI first, then number series, miscellaneous, and so on, and then go on to other topics the next time.
  • Because these mock examinations provide not only speed and accuracy but also a clear notion of the order in which to complete the topics, by doing so, candidates can save time and have a higher attempt rate. Therefore candidates must practice while experimenting with the arrangement of test-taking sequences.
  • There are many surprises in bank exams these days, such as introducing new types of questions, patterns, and sectional time. As a result, candidates must be prepared for any unexpected surprises in the IBPS RRB Office Assistant test.

3. A good understanding of the previous year's cut-off: In the IBPS RRB exam, students must understand the exam analysis and cut-off of the prior year. Because the cut-off will be high if the paper level is easy and has fewer posts, the cut-off is determined by both the exam level and the number of positions available.

The Preliminary exam lasts 45 minutes and has a maximum score of 80 points. To be eligible for the main exam, candidates must pass each section's cut-off.

Section Number of Questions/Maximum Marks
Reasoning 40/40
Numerical Ability 40/40
Total 80/80

Even though the preliminary exam is just used to shortlist candidates for the main exam, passing the cut-off is sufficient. Both components of the preliminary exam (Reasoning and Numerical Ability) are included in the main exam. As a result, effectively preparing for these two portions will assist candidates in passing the Main exam.
