Time management is most important in banking exams. Therefore, one must focus on setting a time limit to the different sections of the question paper and complete it within the set target.
It is not necessary to attempt all the questions as some questions tend to consume more time than the rest. Skip such questions for the latter half of the test.
With the last week in progress one must focus on practicing the model test papers and online mock tests.
Try attempting the easier questions first from the three sections to ensure overall success.
Do an extensive reading of English newspapers and grammar books which will help you to improve your vocabulary and polish your grammar skills for the English language section.
Give priority to important chapters if you have not revised them or not practiced enough questions on them.
It is advisable to leave out any new topics because it will create a lot of stress and you cannot master it enough for the exam now.
Rejuvenate yourself with positive energy so that when you enter the exam hall you feel fresh, energized and ready for the exam day.
Since negative marking system exists in the scoring pattern of this exam, ensure that you answer the questions correctly.
Invest your time and effort into questions you are confident about, and can be solved without wasting too much time.
Sometimes, a thorough revision of answers saves us from a big mistake. So, do save time for this after the completion of test.
