Now that the IBPS PO Prelims results are out, you must be fully geared up for the Mains preparation. The Mains will be on Nov 30, 2019, which leaves with you only 24 days for your preparation. You must remember that you need to put all your efforts in a systematic manner in these 24 days so as to get your best performance on Nov 30. Please bear in mind that there are 4,336 vacancies for which aspirants across the country would be competing with you. Unlike the Prelims which was a speed-based test, IBPS PO Mains checks whether you can deal with difficult questions and your conceptual clarity. Also, the fact that unlike Prelims’ marks which wouldn’t be considered in the final selection, Mains marks will be considered in the final selection.
All in all, you can’t take the Mains exam lightly. After all, all the aspirants whom you’ll be competing with have already shown their mettle by clearing Prelims. Now, let’s have a quick glance at IBPS PO Mains Exam Pattern:
