How to crack IBPS RRB CWE exam 2016?

Speed is important in this examination as roughly 40 seconds will be in your hand to solve one question. Therefore, you have to wisely select the questions.

Abhishek Kalra, Vidyaguru Institute, said, “Speed and selection of the questions are the key to success in this exam. Therefore, do not waste efforts on time consuming questions, instead attempt those questions that you are confident of.”

Since there are separate cut-offs, the candidate need to prove their competence in both reasoning and numerical. There is negative marking, therefore, the candidate should avoid random guesses.

Focus on them
Numerical Ability: In maths, data interpretation of bars and charts are important. In arithmetic, do prepare ratio and proportion, percentages, profit and loss, time and work, time speed and distance, simple and compound interest.

Apart from these, IBPS mostly give calculation-based questions. In geometry mensuration is important.
