Analysis of SBI Clerks Online Exam dated 31st August 2014

Hi, I am Khalid from Karnataka. I attended SBI Clerk exam on 31st Morning Session, the overall paper was easy if someone practiced in depth. This review is based on my memory so bear some discrepancy.

First I attended General awareness and Computer-Marketing, these sections are very easy, if someone inculcate habit of reading newspaper he/she easily solved this section with ease and accuracy (Including English section as newspaper helps to improve your vocabulary and reading skill) completed this session in 20 minutes.

Some of questions are:
1.    Who is the Chairman of axis bank – Dr. Sanjiv Mishra.
2.    Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavana award- Muzaffar Ali
3.    Two easy questions on SLR
4.    Which one of following is post paid service:  SBI Credit card
5.    Mary kom movie produced by Subhash ghai is written by : Saiwyn Quadras
6.    Sri lanka currency: Sri Lanka Rupee
7.    Kuwait capital city
8.    Coal and mining minister
9.    Bank license given to
10.    Which one of the following is not regulator RBI,SEBI,CERN,IRDA
11.    R Bopanna related to- Tennis
12.    The line between USA and Canada is known as – 45th parallel line.
13.    Ebola first detected in
14.    What is the nickname of South Korea – Land of the Morning Calm
15.    This year is century of which war?
16.    Child sex ratio increased by
17.    One question on women shooter
18.    Angela Merkel related to- Germany
19.    State and govt. football tournament- I think Santosh trophy
20.    Which minister initiated 370A controversy- Jitendra singh
21.    World habitat day
22.    One question on Self help group
23.    Which one of following is developmental work?  Felt it was Road construction.
24.    One question on railway budget. Something like 3000cr sanctioned for double line, double Decker etc
25.    Gas pricing committee
26.    PLO- Palestine liberation organization
27.    Question on Spread sheet of corporate
28.    Budget two questions
29.    African union to fight- Boko haram
30.    One question on ways and advances of RBI Credit policy
31.    Range of BRAHMOS Supersonic Cruise Missile – 290 Kms.

Next I attended Reasoning which was on expected lines given by review of previous aspirants. This section comprised questions from Syllogisms, Coding-Decoding, Blood Relations, Inequality, Arrangements (both linear and circular), and Puzzles.

Next English session also on expected line given by review of previous aspirants. There was a passage based on a fiction story of merchant and farmer. Then there were five questions each on Para Jumbles, Spot the Error and Fill in the Blanks which were mostly easy.

Quantitative Aptitude session was easy if someone practiced variety of questions in bringing solutions in faster way, as many questions are logical and not direct. I relied on RS Agarwal and M Tyra, I personally felt these books are helpful to some extent.

My attempts are:
  • General Awareness: 31 (95% accuracy)
  • English: 33 (95%accuracy)
  • Quantitative Aptitude: 16 (100%accuracy)
  • Reasoning: 30 (100%accuracy)
  • Computer and marketing: 39 (95%accuracy)

My big mistake is I thought I attempted 18 questions in apti which was sufficient to cross hurdle of cut off & jumped to reasoning puzzles but at the end of session nuclear bomb exploded and shattered my hopes when at the end of session it showed 16 attempts in aptitude. Finally curtains are down Adieu to SBI Clerk Exam! Waiting for result is arduous task.
 Whether I am still in the frying Pan or I have jumped into the fire. Only time will decide! Let’s keep trying until opportunity knocks at our doors.

Last but not least heartfelt gratitude to team of Gr8ambitionz for providing input to my preparation, adding glitter in the darkness of sea. I am indeed indebted to this site, you are rendering a yeoman service to all bank aspirants, and keep the good works going on!

  1. start preparing for sbi associates

  2. But Dear Why You Attempt Only 16 in Aptitude But Hope for the best My viewpoint is Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude aspirants should Attempt Equal Question Like 20-20 if Time Limit Given

  3. u r right 16 is not acceptable attempt even with 100% accuracy

  4. As last ibps i failed by one mark margin in aptitude so i always fear this sections. thanks for your suggestion next time i do concentrate in balancing both.

  5. Next time sure a balanced approach. thanks.
