IBPS PO- How to prepare for Quantitative aptitude for IBPS PO

With the release of the exam dates for IBPS PO, the IBPS has announced the release of the IBPS PO Admit Card on 30th September 2020. The Admit card is the most important document for the candidates appearing for the IBPS PO exam. The candidates will be denied entry to the exam hall without an admit card.

As per the schedule released, the Preliminary exams will be conducted on 3rd, 4th, and 10th October 2020. The IBPS PO Results for the Preliminary exams will be released on IBPS’s official website.

With exams dates nearing, it is very common for candidates to hit the panic button. Especially when it comes to Quantitative Aptitude. If you have referred to any of last year’s papers, you will realize that this section is getting tougher and the sectional cut-off seems difficult to achieve.

Though Quants may seem to be the toughest section, it is also the most scoring of the rest. It is therefore important that you read this article to prepare in the best manner and take that step closer to clearing the IBPS PO exams.

  • Quit the click- click

Yes, quit the click of the calculator. Practice math mentally. Learn tables till 30, also learn squares, cubes, square roots, and cube roots. It’ll help you cover the topic of Number systems and Number Series.

  • Birds of a feather, clock together

This means that candidates must combine interrelated chapters. This will help you to prepare for the tricky questions asked in the IBPS PO exams. Chapters such as ratios- proportions, percentages, speed, and work can be clubbed together so as to prepare in advance.

  • Too much data to analyze

Questions on data interpretation occupy a greater share of marks than other topics combined. However, this chapter can be mastered only when candidates have mastered speed along with accuracy. We suggest that candidates look up to as many question papers and quizzes on DI as possible so as to understand the variations with which this chapter is tackled in the exams.

  • Keep calm and practice

We have all heard the famous quote- Practice maketh a man perfect! Only 4-5% of the candidates appearing for the IBPS PO exams are eligible for selection. It is therefore very important that candidates give their 100% and practice every day to achieve a balance between speed and accuracy.

  • Do not snooze the study plan

Make a foolproof study plan. Incorporate all subjects, but more importantly incorporate all the chapters, allow time for revision, add break time, and naps. Along with this do not forget to add mock tests, question papers, quizzes, etc. Stick to the plan like your life depends on it- well your career surely does! It is very important that candidates are organized so as to avoid panic at the eleventh hour.

  • No hocus pocus, only focus

The key to success is focusing on speed and accuracy. Quantitative aptitude is all about achieving a balance between speed and accuracy. Speed is of no use if there is inaccuracy and accuracy is futile if one does not speed up to finish the paper. This balance can only be achieved when the candidates practice on a daily basis.
