Key Preparation Tips for SBI Clerk 2021 Exam

Before moving on to the study plan, we'll walk you through some of the key preparation tips for the SBI Clerk exam which you must follow in the remaining time span. Follow the below-mentioned points whole-heartedly to taste the success in SBI Clerk Prelims Exam -

Strict Time-table - The Foremost Requirement

(i) For the remaining days, plan your time very well. You should forget everything except studies for this one month.

(ii) Schedule all your breaks, sleep cycle, study time within the boundaries of your timetable. Make sure you stick to it.

(iii) Cover the entire syllabus properly. Give more attention to important topics. Mark the important points with pen and later revise them anywhere you get the time.

(iv)Take the study sessions. For example, at least 3 study sessions of 3 hours each are required daily. You can cover three subjects in a day or a subject per day or a week. It’s up to you.

Mock Tests - The Best Tool

(i) Attempting the mock test is the best way to analyze your preparation level. It also helps a lot in time management during the exam as well as in handling exam pressure during the actual exam.  In short, attempting a mock test is the best way to gauge your skills.

(ii)Through attempting a mock test you can easily know about the scope of improvement in each section. You can easily analyze your strengths and weaknesses afterward and can work upon them to improve. 

(iii) Daily practice of mock tests will help you a lot in improving your speed as well as accuracy.

Practice - Solve Exercises Regularly

(i) As the old proverb says, 'Practice makes a man perfect'. To get a high score daily practice is required along with a clear understanding of the concepts.

(ii) Practice concepts of each and every section. You can take 2 sections for practice in a day like reasoning and English a day, while quantitative aptitude the next day followed by a mock test which you can take on a daily basis.

(iv) Now only a few weeks are left for the exams so start with practicing more and more quizzes and mini mock tests which are available on gradeup. Then analyze your performance.

Speed and Accuracy - The Important Parameter 

(i) With the introduction of sectional time, speed and accuracy will play a major role in the selection of candidates. To score well in all three sections focus on speed and accuracy.

(ii) As a smart approach, solve the easier question at first and leave the tough ones. Once you are done with easy to moderate questions, you can switch on to tough questions, if time allows.

(iii) Spending too much time on a single question will waste your precious time, so if you are not able to solve it within 1 minute then you should move on to the next question.
