SBI PO EXAM ANALYSIS (MEMORY BASED) 

SBI conducts recruitment exam for Probationary Officer (PO) positions. The SBI PO exam is conducted in two phases- Preliminary and Main.

The sbi po Preliminary exam is an online objective exam consisting of 100 questions to be answered in 60 minutes. There are 3 Sections in SBI PO Pre exam namely English, Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude.

We have found that the overall difficulty level of the exam was moderate and not that difficult but yes time consuming, so smart work will work. So Speed, Accuracy and Planning is surely needed to have good attempts.The pattern of paper was similar to last years SBI PO prelims exam.

The over-all difficulty level of the SBI PO Main examination was really a Difficult and Out of the tradational exam pattern. The most surprising factor was that Different Weightage for Different Question.  SBI introduced new pattern of paper with sectional timing. It reflects on the overall difficulty level of the exam. Overall SBI PO paper was difficult and students were surprised by the pattern of paper. Since, there was different weightage for different questions; the overall difficulty level of exam increased.   

SBI PO Data Analysis And Interpretation section was difficult for students. The difficulty level of this section was high as the questions were tough and time consuming

In SBI PO Reasoning Ability and Computer Aptitude section Puzzles were less and other sections were also given importance and the overall difficult was moderate-Difficult, which simply means that accuracy will play an more important role. There were no questions from Computer Sections.

In SBI PO English Language section two Reading Comprehension, this section were tough as new types of questions have been asked. They asked Statement Fillers and Antonyms and Synonyms have been asked separately. A new set of questions have been introduced in this section.

SBI PO General Awareness questions were quite conventional and more emphasised are given to Current Affairs again and questions are easy which are based of facts and traditional general knowledge questions are lesser in numbers. SBI PO Banking awareness questions were also asked and these are mostly current affiars and some questions are based on fact.
