  1. Aspirants would have prepared in an immense manner and picking the right questions is the key in the IBPS CLERK Prelims Exam 2018. Attend the Questions which are easier, and which takes less amount of time. Don’t get stranded at a question as said before, picking the questions is the important factor which decides the total number of attempts.
  2. Don’t limit yourselves with limitations. Please attempt the maximum number of questions as this is the next important thing t score more marks. Aspirants normally think of the previous year cut off marks and some tend to limit themselves for several questions.
  3. Try to read all the questions first. Then picking the right questions is an easier task. Only after we come out of the Exam, many aspirants would feel for not attempting an easier question. So, the first thing to do while attending the question is to check all the questions.
  4. Try to concentrate more on your weaker sections. For Example, if English is your weaker section and getting marks is difficult in that section, please provide the necessary time to score sure shot marks in that section. Don’t waste your time doing the hard problems and questions. Again, choosing the right questions to score is the key.
  5. The individual cut off marks for different sections will be less when considered according to the previous tests. So, try to maintain and score more marks in the section in which you are stronger.

Remember scoring maximum marks is the only way to crack the IBPS CLERK PRELIMS EXAM 2018 (which absolutely depends on the difficulty level of the Questions). Whatever may be the difficulty level be calm and composed, if it is difficult for you, then the same questions will also be difficult for others, so don’t panic in any situations.
  6. The last one will be a general one. Please go to the exam center on time as we cannot speculate about the events which will happen at that time. So plan your travel accordingly, take necessary photocopies of other Original ID Proofs because if by chance when one proof is not accepted due to some reason, you can show the next one as ID proof and this will be the best way to deal the situation rather than to panic at that time.
