Yes, it is true that more than 6 months are there for the exam preparations, yet it is important that all the students aspiring to clear this exam understand that they don’t have any time to waste on things like- finding the right syllabus, finding the important topics to cover and finally hunting the valuable resources that could teach and explain them the whole syllabus.

This article from expert faculty offering IBPS coaching in Delhi, will help you in all your preparations and following this we guarantee that you will easily cross the cut-off.

The English section for this exam is mainly divided in to 4 parts:

1) Reading Comprehension
2) Grammar
3) Vocabulary
4) Verbal Ability

Take in to account that all these topics are common for Mains exams too, hence preparing well will help in next stage as well. Obviously, for mains, the difficulty along with the number of questions will increase.

Preparing Reading Comprehension 

1) Mostly the topics for passage include: Moral stories, Social Issues, Business, Banking & Economy, etc.

2) The passage length will range from small to medium, which will help in developing quick reading.

3) The questions asked aim at testing the candidate’s vocabulary and grasping ability. So, while practicing make sure you try to figure out as many difficult words (later find out their meanings, synonyms, antonyms, etc.) as possible.

4)  At times, it is best to start reading the question first and then move ahead to passage reading, this will help in better understanding of the questions and quick retrieval of the answers from the passage content.

5)  To start with the practice, it is recommended to try your hand on at least 10 questions, of which 6 should be on moral stories, 2 on banking & economy and the final 2 on social issues.

6) Never skip solving the previous papers and mock tests as a part of your exam preparations.

Preparing Grammar

1) Error spotting, Phrase Replacement and Fill in the Blanks are the three main topics covered in the grammar part.

2) The grammar part has 5-10 questions based on basic concepts like: tenses, prepositions, articles, degree of comparison, conjunctions, subject-verb agreement, etc.

3)  Daily practice of at least 30 questions is recommended

Preparing Vocabulary

1) The topics for both prelims and mains are: cloze test, fill in the blanks, which also include double blanks, error spotting and phrase replacement.

2)  It is obvious that you cannot build your vocabulary in a day or even in a week. It is a continuous process and each day you will learn and grow in your vocabulary. Be alert towards new words, write down, find meanings, find synonyms, antonyms and try to use them in routine conversation.

3) Daily practice of 5 cloze test, 15 phrase replacements, 15 error spotting questions and 15 fill-in-the-blanks is recommended.

4) Again, pay attention to previous papers and mock test papers.

Preparing Verbal Ability

1)  This section includes a para jumble of 6 sentences with 5 related questions. It is important that you learn the tricks to tackle and solve the para jumbles.

2) The questions here might include an incomplete sentence and you have to complete the same understanding the context of the sentence.

3) It is obvious that the passage here will be narrating a story with a definite beginning, middle and the end, so it is important that you find the logic behind the story and answer the questions based on this logic.

4) Conjunctions or the connecting words help you in finding the links between the story.

We hope this article from the most result-oriented coaching centre offering banking coaching in Delhi to thousands of students every year is informative and get you on the track of clearing IBPS Clerk Prelims
