There’s only 7 more days left for the SBI Clerk Mains, and I’m sure your preparation is on in full swing. But before I dive into the details on the upcoming online blue book, let me give you some insights on what you should expect.
As compared to the papers of previous years, the level of difficulty this year can be expected to shoot up because of the uncertainty in the pattern of questioning and time allocation. There may not be a set pattern of questioning. The section-wise order may be preset by the bank’s server.
While answering the questions, it is very important that you read the questions very carefully and answer them with utmost care. Manage your time well, and don’t misread the question.
