# IBPS PO VI Online Exam Syllabus

IBPS Probationary Officers Exam is the toughest exam in the whole IBPS Exam series. It is the second hardest exam in the banking exam series (1st will be SBI PO). Of course, we don't mean that its impossible to crack, all that we wanted to say is.... you should be little more cautious and focused during the preparation and writing the exam. From the date of IBPS PO IV notification, people have been asking us to post the syllabus of this exam. But we felt its not so useful if we simply give the names of the topics.

So we have decided the preparation plan into two parts.
1. What to Prepare and
2. How to Prepare.

In this post we are going to discuss what to prepare (i.e., syllabus). In our next post we shall discuss complete preparation plan (How to prepare) so that you will get the complete idea on "How to prepare for this exam". So now lets have a look at the syllabus.

3. you must study Data interpretation it comes for 15 marks but no need to study non verbal

2. please remove the "note" under section of quantitative aptitude section that is"in ibps po 1 there are 20 questions from data interpretation and analysis. and in ibps po 2 ther are of 35 marks. but for this time they may not focus that much as its literally no possible for a person to scroll up and down to check the values again and again"

this is Because in Data interpretation question they display chart,table with every question so you do not need to scroll up and down to see the values.......so this time also preference would given to data interpretation...

1. s i 2 agree..bcoz in (ibps specialist officer march 17 2013)..there were no questions from non verbal reasoning..

2. no non verbal question can be asked for online exam, because there is non verbal question in IBPS RRB online exam, i know because i wrote that online exam

16. please remove the note under reasoning section as the ibps po 3 exam will going to be conduct on online in October, there is no preference for non verbal reasoning sine the systems doesn't support java in online. try to remove it and place statements & assumptions & arguments.
