How to prepare for IBPS Clerk Exam 2022

Once, you are aware of the syllabus and pattern of IBPS clerk exam, you should start the preparation immediately. The preparation should always be done keeping the IBPS Clerk Mains exam in mind. The focus should be on clearing the basics first and then move to complex questions. This approach would always be fruitful and yield great results.

To make one’s own strategy for preparation and clearing the exam one needs to be aware of the previous year’s cut-off along with the syllabus.

State-wise Overall Cut-off for IBPS Clerk Prelims 2018


Section-wise Cut-off for IBPS Clerk Prelims 2018

CATEGORY English Language Reasoning Ability Quantitative Aptitude
General 9.75 10.75 11.75
OBC/SC/ST 6.75 6.25 8.00

IBPS Clerk Mains 2018 Cut off

CHANDIGARH 43.63   48.38 55.18
NEW DELHI 44.35 39.18 50.60 55.83

HIMACHAL PRADESH 40.28 40.38 45.15 53.50
PUNJAB 40.88   48.35 56.58

After a close analysis of the previous year cut offs and recent pattern asked in exams, it is advisable to all the students that all the sections, namely English, Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning need to be focused on equally. It is no longer the case that a person good at one particular section can easily clear the IBPS Clerk exam.

Also in IBPS Clerk exam, the role of current affairs in the final selection is very crucial, the section which is mostly ignored by the new aspirants.

Practice, practice and practice is the key to selection…
