The questions from the morning slot have been extensively covered which would be enough to give a complete idea about the whole day as in most cases, the pattern of the questions asked remained the same. Sharing here just two to three quick observations before the exact questions:

  1. SBI proves yet again that it is a bundle of surprises as, unlike the other exams, it didn’t maintain uniformity of the questions and the difficulty level of the questions asked specially in the Reasoning Section. Example; 5 questions on Sentence coding la pa ja were completely missing and were replaced by Blood Relation and Directions having 3 and 2 questions respectively. Though in English and Maths there were no big surprises. Singles in Maths were time consuming and confusing.
  1. Technical glitches rocked the exam at few centers. The Save and Next button went missing in most of the questions and one had to scroll through the question palette and switch between questions, mark the answer again to save the answers. This happened a lot many times to irritate anyone! Seriously!!
  1. Rest, questions like Series, Simplification, DI etc contained repetitive logic making it easier for the students who wrote exams in the later slots!
  1. Maximum students have been reporting a practical and logical attempt of 60-65. So, don’t get carried away by the huge attempts that the internet is flooded with!
  1. Above everything else, Scan the paper in the first few minutes and increase your attempts by at least 10 questions than usual as scanning really helps save a lot of time and stops us waste a lot of time in the irrelevant questions. Always remember;

Well begun is half done! 🙂

First Slot RC passage:

One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written:
“Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym”. In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!” One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: “There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.” You are the only person who can revolutionise your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realisation and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself. Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realise that you are the only one responsible for your life. “The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself”.
