IBPS IT Officer Scale-I Exam Review - Afternoon Session

59 comments

Hi Friends, I am Jisha. I attended the afternoon section of IBPS SO III exam, for IT Officer Scale-I, on 9th February 2014, at Ernakulam. I am person with more accuracy and less speed, especially in quantitative aptitude. I wrote it with accuracy in mind.
My plan was to attend English for 25 minutes, Quantitative Aptitude for next 40 minutes, Reasoning for next 30 minutes and rest 25 minutes for professional knowledge.

I started with English,the passage given was a bit tough..but there i spend a bit more time...there were questions to find the central theme of passage..i somehow completed English with 30 minutes.

Then i moved to quantitative aptitude.....which was very tough for me..(and later i found many people saying the same)..so overall maths was tough.I got confused in one DI question..but i couldn't even have a look on the question paper..i was just skipping the very tough ones..and doing tough ones..:D.....i am very slow in this section..and i found i have done some careless mistakes.I just went back to those questions and corrected my ans.This took more time.I stopped it after 40 minutes and moved to reasoning.

Reasoning was easy-moderate....i skipped some questions in between,as there is sectional cut off..and i wanted to go back to maths again.It was good..not very much complex questions.

Now i have 20 minutes in hand....and prof. knowledge section...I started doing it fast..and i skipped all questions which confused me....it was overall easy..and where i got confused was like...3 options are definitely wrong..and rest 2 are doubtful...and out of these,there were 5 questions which i cudn't even make a guess.I finished this with 16 minutes.

Again,i went back to quantitative aptitude....i tried to solve some more questions...and soon i got that time over message with my no. of attempts.I cannot say the overall distribution as i didn't view the paper full.

My attempts are
Reasoning-28
English-30
Maths-14
Professional Knowledge-32

On an average,i found people with 30-35 attempts in reasoning,25-30 in english,20 in maths,and 35+ in professional knowledge.If cut off comes down,i hope i will clear it..:)..All the best to all !!

  3. yes quant is very tough, reasoning and eng are moderate while it is easy
    my attempt- quant-26 reasoning- 43 eng- 35 it- 43 (accuracy 70%)
    anyone knows formula for calculating the standard marks??
    because sectional cutoff for all section is 24 definitely but there is some formula for calculating these marks which depends upon overall candidates performance

    2. Nobody knows what will be the sectional cut-offs.So definitely it will not 24 for all sections.

    2. How do you know whether anyone clears or not?Attempting 100-110 doesn't mean that anyone will not clear the exam. It all depends on the difficulty level. That's what happened in po-III where there was more than 10 lack registrations.There's a huge difference b/w this years paper and last year.

  20. Hi GISHAGN,

    Your attempt hierarchy is good.I started with PK completed in 25 min(Planned 20 min).English in 20 min (Planned 15 min)by skipping lengthy questions.Then had choice of maths and reasoning.As these sections are usually time consuming.i started with maths and took 40 min. One DI was very time consuming but easy.So completed by skipping mathematical series questions(my weak part).Finally attempted reasoning and clock expired in 35 min.
    I found that i have done 133 questions with 80% accuracy. Dont know the cutoff.

    Attempts :
    PK : 48
    Eng: 34
    Math :24 :(
    Reasoning : 27 :)

    ADMIN please let us know the expected cut off of CWE SO 3

    1. I had a rough idea about questions to be asked in each section and was clear with basics,as i was preparing for competitive exams.I brought a question paper set and analysed previous papers,and came to know about the exact pattern.Then i just revised all topics within 10 days..and then started solving papers from my book.For professional knowledge,i learned DBMS,Computer Networks,Data Communication,Microprocessors and Microcontrollers,Data Structures,Operating System,Web Technology,Network Security,Compiler Design and Software Engineering.Only the basics and important topics from these subjects and only those which i studied for B tech,using text books which i followed for B tech.Then i solved mock mcqs,given by gr8ambitionz and some other website.

      For you,i suggest you to clear basics with 2 months and then start solving papers,do this for 1 month...you will clear the exam for sure...

    2. And,i intentionally skipped C,C++,Java and Digital Electronics..as i reached saturation level with other subjects..:D

  24. Last year I scored 158 in IT Officer Scale - I, CWE SO II. but this year i could attempt only 149 (with >90% accuracy) .
    Logical : 37
    Quants : 32
    Verbal : 39
    Computer : 41

    The paper was tough compared to last year. Last year's cut-off was 24 in every section and overall cutoff was 132. this year, considering the difficulty of the paper and the limited availability of posts, I am expecting the cutoffs to be 15 - 18 for every section and the overall cutoff to be 110-120.

  25. to everyone here quants were much easier in morning shift of 9/2/2014.

    in evening shifts quants were very tough. i think 12+ correct in quant will be enough to clear sectional cutoff.

    there a lot of people who spread negativity. i could attempt only 9/50 in po3 but still managed to qualify.

    ReplyDelete
  26. hi frnds i have attempted 151 ,in evening shift.i have planned for atleast 170 attempt.but paper was tough enough.so could manage only 151 ,quant 21
    reasoning 35
    english 45
    professional knowledge 50
    about 80% accuracy.lets hope for the best.i have worked hard for this paper .hope to clear this one .all the best to all of u
