Friends, its time to discuss about the IBPS Clerks IV Online Exam. We already have started updating detailed study materials about this exam. But people have been requesting us to discuss the pattern and syllabus. So this post is for them. As we have already mentioned in our previous posts IBPS Clerical Exam is not that much hard to crack. With little preparation and focus you can easily clear this exam with good score. The best thing in this exam is, almost all questions will be direct questions. There probably will be NO twisted questions like the ones they ask in PO exams. Lets start our discussion with the Pattern of the Exam.
