Here are some pointers to keep in mind before the SBI PO prelims exam 2019:

  1. Check your admit card for the do's and don'ts inside the exam hall. Strictly adhere to the list of articles allowed inside the exam hall to avoid any last minute trouble.
  2. Reach the exam centre well before time because there is a possibility that you may have to spare some extra minutes to cooperate with the security staff frisking all candidates for any cheating material at the exam centre.
  3. The SBI PO preliminary exam is conducted for 100 marks with a time duration for each of the three sections — English, Reasoning, and Quantitative Aptitude.
  4. The first section, English, is allotted 20 minutes for the completion of 30 questions carrying one mark each. The second, Reasoning, is also allotted 20 minutes for 35 marks. The Quantitative Aptitude section is also given 20 minutes for 35 marks.
  5. Time management is an important factor in passing the preliminary exam to qualify for the main SBI PO 2019 exam.
  6. Students are advised to finish all questions in a given section within the set time as they will not be able to log back into a previously concluded section even if they have extra time remaining at the end.
