Changes in IBPS PO this year
From this year onwards, IBPS will be following the exam pattern and syllabus of SBI PO. This year has seen a major change, unlike every other year.
a. Objective Online Preliminary Examination.
b. Objective and Descriptive Online Mains Examination.
c. The final interview.
In this selection process, what has changed is the second phase, while the rest sees no major change in pattern.
Both phases are computer-based, i.e., online. On interviewing some successful aspirants we have come across the belief that Bank and SSC quant in India is not only tricky but most difficult to achieve accuracy in. While SSC CGL 2017 saw a raised difficulty level in quant, the SBI PO 2017 quant ranged between easy and moderate for the majority of questions.
