Today we are going to share all about that new user interface in IBPS RRB PO Prelims exam.

This year IBPS has made the major change in displaying questions. Earlier, there used to be one language either English or Hindi as selected by the candidates, at one time, But this time, both the languages in the question were displayed together due to which aspirants faced many problems in finding the correct answer, marking of the answer, and it was consuming much of their time than usual. Although IBPS released a mock test with the same interface to make aspirants aware of this change. As no aspirant was familiar with this new release, it consumes their lot of time in scrolling.
