Dear Banking Aspirant,

The Start of the new season has flourished and we hope this year will provide you with the best results through your hard word and determination. The previous year ended with the Specialist Officer Exam and since this Clerk notification came in the previous year , this exam pertains to the year 2017, even though the mains exam happen in a different year. Reasoning Ability , one of the easiest section to crack the exam (almost every exam) and this section seems to be in the easier range in terms of difficulty. Apart from the Seating Arrangement and the Puzzles (even they are easier ) , other topics would be a cake walk for the candidates. In the recently held IBPS CLERK PRELIMS EXAM , the alphabet series and also the alphanumeric series constituted for the maximum marks, so you can expect the same level of questions in the mains exam too.

New Pattern Questions will make this section still more complex and even in the recent exams, only some sections will be asked in the new pattern and not all the sections.

As you all know the difficulty level of the exams that happened in the recent days are in a different level and one needs to constantly prepare to ace the exam and to achieve their dreams. The level of difficulty increases for each exam and there is no turning back for the easier level questions (some of the exams in the lower level cadre had easier questions because, the level of the exam is exactly like that). So to crack the exam and to be the best , you have to study for the exams in an exemplary way and lot of dedication has to be put to achieve this.

We have been providing Exam Planners for various exams and now due to constant feedback to start a new series for the IBPS CLERK MAINS EXAM 2017 which happens on 21st January, 2018 we have started a Exam study Planner to battle the IBPS CLERK MAINS EXAM 2017. Since the struggle for the final place in the list of selected needs bigger preparations, we hope this will help you to achieve the same. We have also provided Quantitative Aptitude , Reasoning Ability, English Language , Current Affairs and Static GK in the planner, so that this will be helpful for the candidates who are preparing for the IBPS CLERK MAINS EXAM 2017.
