IBPS Clerk 2016 - Top 5 Incredible Time Management tips

“The bad news is time flies, the good news is you are the pilot” 

I still remember the days when examinations were “nightmares” for everyone. Examination hall was a battlefield for a student and he/ she used to struggle with his/her concepts and the questions asked. The most difficult part in any examination is “managing time”. The entire three hours passes like a minute and we beg for the last 5 mins to the invigilator to answer the questions which are left. In this case, efficient time management is the only weapon which makes you ace the examination. In this article, we bring you some of the most incredible time management tips for the aspirants of IBPS Clerk 2016.

IBPS Clerk 2016 is one of the prominent examinations in the ‘clerical cadre’. The examination is conducted on an annual basis. Before going to the tips for preparation, let us take a look at the pattern of IBPS Clerk Prelims 2016:

Let us take a look at some of the best time management tips which we would suggest you to cause every second is ‘a rip off’:
 

  • Try to invest not more than one minute per question. The questions which you find as lengthy try to skip them. They will consume much of your valuable time and you will end up running short of time. You can attempt these questions later when you save some time at the end.

  • Assign time slot for each section and adhere to the allocation. It will help you go through all the sections in a genuine manner and will not let skip any of them. Drop a question if it takes more time than required because that will create a problem for you when you attend other sections.

  • If you are good enough in solving a particular section, allocate a bit more time than to this section as compared to the section in which you are not good. Please do keep in mind that you need to clear the sectional cut- off marks which means that you have to attempt enough questions in all three sections. We suggest you a time allocation agenda which will help you out:

Priority level

  • Be confident about yourself and believe in your capabilities. Nervousness will make your mind blank and you will end up getting confused.

We hope that you will pull your socks up and prepare for the IBPS Clerk Prelims very effectively. Hope to see you at the top with great scores. Stay connected for more updates. All the best!
