Review of SBI PO Online Exam held on 21st June 2014 (Morning Session)

Friends, I am Richa Grover. I am an engineering graduate of 2013 and currently working in a college as a lab technician in Uttar Pradesh. Today (21-06-2014)  I've attended the SBI PO Online Exam's morning session. I have attempted 120 questions with good accuracy. All the remaining sections except DI were ok for me, but in Data Interpretation I could attempt only 16 questions (3 of them might be wrong - not sure about those answers). I will try to share my version of review here. 

General Awareness section was most easiest section among all. Some of the questions I can remember are, the easiest way of Funds Transfer, Book name of Kushwant Singh (They have asked this question last weeks also, i saw that in reviews in this site), a question on former S. C. Judge B. N. Krishna (on 11th May, he appointed as the chairman of FPSB), Sunil Gavaskar (head of BCCI), One question on US's suspension of Syrian Embassy, Unsolicited Mail, Swift, GUI, Binary numbers etc.

English section (both objective and descriptive) are good. You should work on previous papers well. You can easily clear these sections. 

Reasoning was ok. I could attempt 25 questions in this section. This section is also moderate but confusing. I wasted my time on seating arrangement question which appears to be very easy (8 people are sitting on a single line facing different directions. You have to arrange them according to their jobs). One question was about 5 envelopes and their sizes, which was very easy you can easily get marks in this. Finally I could manage to solve this, but it took me almost 10 minutes to solve. Remaining questions are ok. I dint even check remaining 50% of the questions as I was in a hurry about DI.
Data Interpretation was the toughest one for me. I just learned all types of graphs and how to solve it. But i dint focus to practice more. In result I have ended up solving only 16 questions in this section. All questions are as shared in last weeks' reviews. One question (theory wala) was about renovation of cabins. For which they gave the painting, furniture, carpeting,  tiling, electric fitting costs details. Asked us about the costs of carpeting cabins etc. This question ate my time.

Some people in my center told me that they've attended 150+ questions with good accuracy. One guy told that he could attempt 30 questions in GA and he is confident to clear the exam.

The overall paper was moderate, but I couldn't perform well due to lack of practice :(. All the best to all. Thanks to gr8ambitionz team for the support.

  1. The award given by the president on international women's day

Review shared by Madhab Sahoo
  • English- This section was easy to attempt comprising of 2 comprehension , cloze test , antonym / synonym , sentence arrangement etc. You can attempt about 30 questions within 20 min max if you are good in reading and understanding.
  • GK- This was the most easiest section in the exam. You can attempt about 30-35 questions within 10-15 min. If you attempt this section 1st then time management will be easy for you.
  • Reasoning- This section was moderate because of confusing questions. if you keep calm & try to understand the questions properly then it will be easy for you. 15-20 marks came from Sitting Arrangement & Puzzle. Input/Output , Syllogism etc. was there. You can attempt up-to 30 questions easily but check the time.
  • Di- The most difficult & lengthy section of the exam. Due to lack of practice & speed calculation i am in doubt in this section. But you try to attempt about 10-12 questions max with 100% accuracy. It will be time consuming so keep about 40-45 min time for this section particularly.
My suggestion you should start attempting from Gk,English,Reasoning & finally Di. Hope this will be helpful for you. All the Best Friends

Tips shared by Anonymous Friend

I just want to thank gr8ambitionz firstly. Gk bits you have shared have given me hope out of which 6to15 were from the shared points. My suggestions for cracking PO by today's exam -
  1. Try to attempt Gk session first fix the time for 15 to 20 min . I am sure u will get Max as the section is so easy
  2. Next go for English which might be having two comprehension - first one is the most easiest next one is a bit time taking. Attempt max in closed test n sentence arrangement. Rest depends on your ability ( 20 to 25 min) 
  3. Next go for reasoning - believe me guys it was so easy if or good at puzzle n sitting arrangement. They have given 15 simple arrangements. Dont get frightened go with simple thinking at them u will get the answer. Statement n assmps n cause effect etc are given with in a single paragraph. U can get max ( 30 to 35 )
  4. Next u will be having nearly 35 to 40 min for DI. Believe me guys its really tough simply. My advice- go through all the graphs n read some questions from every graph. Take out easiest (comparatively) attempt atleast 10 to 12 correctly. Your job is done. All the best friends :)

  17. Mine was on 15th June... if i compere my exam's GA review with urz.. i think ours was easier !! because our GA questions were approachable even for those who do not read newspapers regularly ..., so there is a possibility that it will go even more narrow in next sessions of exam.. So i request to all the aspirants to not avoid GA after reading such reviews .....as it is the most scoring section ..do read GA capsules ..they help alot!!!!

Full form of GUI, Oscar best film, kushwanth singh's last book, what is sector, lot of questions about "customer relationship managemnt". I found General awreness to be pretty easy. I managed to solve some reasoning questions as well. I was stuck in few "seating arrangement questions" and a question of 7 newspapers on 7 diff days of a week. the mistake i did is that i took up DI d last. I ended up solving only abt 7 queations. Overall d paper was easy. someone who is being practising since few mnth can easily crack it. All the best ppl....

    Replies
    1. Hey Neha,

      I do not want to dishearten you but its really very difficult because this time english section is on a slight moderate node. So, you can expect minimum cut off between 12-14. Rest depends upon your luck because when they will equalises all the papers by weighted average method and if they will find your paper on a tougher side then only you can expect such kind of cut off and ultimately they will converts your 6-7 score to 12-13 which is almost impossible. Rest is upto your luck.

      Best of Luck

  57. My Exam Was on 15th June morning Shift. In my exam's question paper DI and reasoning paper was on a tougher side whereas as English section was on a moderate and GA+marketing section on an easier node. The biggest mistake which I made was I started the paper with DI section which is not good but at last managed to attempt good no. of question so please don't make same mistake and try to start the paper with english section and attempt the DI paper at the end.
    Here is my attempt breakup:

    English : 39
    GA+Marketing : 45
    Reasoning : 28
    DI : 21

    Apart from this descriptive paper was on a moderate side but more focused towards economics and finance related topics.

    Best of luck to everyone

    Hi Friends! This is Rakesh. I had my exam in the morning session today(22nd June). The DI portion was as usual the most tricky part. I was able to attend 18 questions in 50 minutes. Reasoning section was mixed type containing around 25 questions which can be completed in 20 minutes and the remaining were seating arrangement which i didn't try. The remaining sections English and GK were easy. I am happy that at least they kept the GK part mild. I attended 38 questions in this. English section had 2 comprehension passages with some new words. I attended 31 questions in this section. In all I was able to complete 112 questions in the time permitted. Guys I would suggest not to guess any answers in the coming exams because justof a feeling of not attempting much number of questions. Try to be accurate.
    Some of the question in the GK which I remembered were:
    Q.1 RBI allowed the minority above the age of 10 years to open an account.
    Q.2 BCCI Banned which cricket board in India?- Rajasthan cricket Board
    q.3 Some committee for governing the banks.
    Q.4 Keyboard is used in a computer to________.
    Q.5 Which city topped in the urban population in the census?
    Q.6 A question on ethics in marketing.

  61. Hi bank aspirants. this is senthil. i 22-06-2014 morning batch. before writing your exam just plan and attend of how many questions u have to in each section. this is the only mantra. i think this time if u clear the sectional cutoff itself is a great achievement and with 5 questions extra will make u pass to the next level. for GK just try to know what is happening in india and its rbi.

    best of luck for next batch..
