  1. Read the question paper wisely:

    During the exam, you need to ensure that you go through all the questions of all the sections at least once and do not get stuck with one problem as it might reduce your speed. In order to increase speed, you should quickly solve easier questions first and mark the tougher ones to be attempted later.

  2. Start with the easier section:

    Answer the questions that you find easy followed by the tough questions. This will give you the confidence and set the pace for the exam.

  3. Select the sections wisely:

    Solve questions from English, General Awareness, and Computers section in the beginning as they take up the least time to be solved. This can also help boost your confidence and speed.

  4. Do not get stuck on a question:

    Do not spend more than two minutes on any question. If you solve a question in just a few seconds, then use the remaining seconds for solving the tougher questions. If you are unable to solve it, then leave it and move ahead with other questions.

  5. Know your strong areas:

    Recognise your strongest zone and attempt questions from that section first with speed and accuracy.

  6. Learn the smart shortcuts:

    There are shortcuts to every problem. So, you need to learn the various techniques and smart ways / best shortcuts for answering some of the toughest questions in the IBPS Exams.

  7. Practice well:

    Practice is the master key to success in all competitive exams & IBPS 2016 is no exception. It not only increases understanding of the subject but speed too. The more you practice previous year’s question papers and sample papers, the more you’re fast and accurate.

  8. Prepare through mock tests:

    Take as many test series and online mock tests that you can to analyse the time taken for completing the paper. This strategy will help you improve your timing and problem-solving skills.

  9. Learn the art of speed management:

    For increasing speed for IBPS Exams, keep a stopwatch handy. Especially while you’re solving previous year question papers or giving mock tests, to fix the time for each section. Improve and reduce the time on the stopwatch, every time you give the mock test.
