Understand The Difference Between The Preliminary And Main Exams

Aspirants might be familiar with the SBI PO exam pattern for both the preliminary and main examinations. In the main examination, they will find the descriptive paper along with general/economy/banking awareness questions.

The format of the questions in the main examination will be different from the preliminary exam and the level of difficulty is a bit high. The syllabus for both the preliminary and main examinations is almost similar.

We advise aspirants to give special attention to data interpretation (DI). Usually, the sets of DI will be based on pie charts, line graphs, bar graphs, missing DI and tabular graphs. One should be strong in the basic simplifications such as ratio and proportion, percentages, profit and loss, averages, time and work, simple interest and compound interest. One should also prepare for computer aptitude in the main examination.
