1. Analyse the syllabus: Solve 3 – 4 mocks of the pre and select what is at you are weak and strong. Make a list of the two. 

2. Make a time table. Allot more time to your weak areas and less time to strong areas. You can give 60-80% time on weak areas for a few weeks until you become relatively strong in it.

3. Features of the time table:
4. Study Notes: The syllabus for pre is quite easy and most people just study, give exam and then forget. But we will recommend you to make chapter/topic wise notes of what you study. This will help you prepare for the Mains exam also.

Dos and Don’ts for the SBI PO Mains 2020

One thing keep in mind that you should start preparing for Mains as soon you complete the syllabus for the pre. You will not have enough time after the pre examination. Though we write the strategies for Mains after pre, but you have to follow it along with the preparations for pre.

The Mains exam will have two more subjects namely General/Banking Awareness and Essay/Letter Writing. Preparation for the Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude and English you will have to do along with the preparations for pre because the three subjects are common. But the level of the three in Mains is high. So, as soon you start getting good ranks in Pre Mocks, start solving Mains level Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, and English.
