Dear students, no matter how old you are now, or for how long you have been striving to achieve your goal. You are never too young or too old for success or going after what you want. Many of you must be discontented with your performance in IBPS PO Mains Examination. Students, the exam was really very knotty, especially to those who have just started preparing for these examinations.
Changed pattern of the examination was a bombshell that blew almost everyone’s mind who attempted the examination. So, if you feel low just because you could not perform to the best of your ability, do bear it in mind that the pattern was new to everyone. You are not the only one whose performance was not up to his/her expectations.
Students, a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity and an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. So, be positive and hopeful because cut off is not going to go that high as the paper was really very tricky. Conventional pattern questions were hardly seen in the IBPS PO Mains examination and the new introduction of Online Descriptive Test made it more challenging for the students to deal with the examination with poise.
If we talk about the section wise changes then English was the section that showed the extreme changes in the pattern of examination followed by Reasoning, Data Analysis and Interpretation and General/Economic/Financial Awareness. In English Section, there were new pattern questions of Errors, Double Fillers, and Cloze test. In Reasoning Section, all the questions, apart from the ones on Data Sufficiency, followed a new and convoluted pattern that took the students to invest more time than usual in this Sections. New pattern Caselet and inclusion of Geometry in Data Sufficiency made Data Analysis and Interpretation Section more difficult and complicated than ever before.
And students, if we talk about the expected overall cut off of IBPS PO Mains 2017 Examination then it is supposed to be around 62 to 68. If we talk about Section-wise cut off then the expected Cut off is as follows:
|Reasoning and Computer Aptitude||5-8|
|Data Analysis and Interpretation||7-10|
So students, stop wasting your time being upset about something you can’t change. Start over right now, implement the lessons you have learned from your mistakes, and do it better next time.
Best of luck!!
