2. Revision of the Important Topics:

In this remaining crucial time, BYJU'S Exam Prep advises you to not start any new topic preparation, no matter how essential it is. This is the time to just revise the important topics of the paper which you’ve already gone through. Revision plays an important role in the last-minute exam strategy.

Plan a proper timetable, focus on proper study plan as well as the revision. Dedicate more time towards analyzing your performance in mock tests you take and learn from your mistakes.

You should try full-length mock tests in the BYJU'S Exam Prep IBPS SO test series.

3. Stay cool and avoid last-minute cramming

Often students are seen engaged in heavy preparation at the last moment which results in muddling up of their thoughts. This will create undue stress which is not what you would want to do. We request you to stay calm and keep an eye on prepared topics.

Keep solving previous year's papers and have faith in preparation. Don't forget to go through the important topics asked in the professional knowledge section of the previous year's paper.

4. Start with Easy Topics to Boost up Yourself

Try to finish one of the topics you've chosen. Don't leave half of the topics in the middle of the discussion. You will be able to cope with your lack of confidence during exam days in this manner. As a result, finish the topics on time while focusing on one at a time.

5. Complete the Scoring Topics First

IBPS SO is the most difficult exam, with a lower selection ratio than other IBPS exams such as PO. As a result, it is recommended that you concentrate on high-scoring areas such as verbal reasoning, blood relation, and professional knowledge of your field.

6. Eat Healthy & Sleep well

Our body needs the energy to work and perform efficiently. Healthy nutrition and ample sleep give an extra edge during the exam. Avoid junk food and drink an adequate amount of water to avoid dehydration. Also, try to get at least 8 hours of sleep during the exam days.

7. Maintain the Speed & Accuracy

When writing a paper, your pace is quite vital. In a CBT-style test, you must keep track of both the time and the speed. Try to avoid lengthy problems that need a lot of reading time, especially in reasoning, such as seated arrangement issues, which you can solve later if you have the time.

  • Read all the questions properly. You might get questions in different formats or languages.
  • Be relaxed and stay calm. IBPS will decide the cut-off as per the level of difficulty of the exam.
