Hello Friends,

Its time to bell the most difficult exam till now the ‘IBPS PO’. Unlike every year this year comes with a not so easy and a hard hitting English language section. People who are not good at reading will be the ones most affected by the same. The only safe haven for the students being the Reading Comprehension. As, the other 20 questions were purely based on English usage and grammatical proficiency of the candidates. In these too the surprise element couldn’t be hidden. As, there was a complete change in the pattern. Only spotting an error won’t come to your rescue. Explaining the two varieties we bring to you a Speed Booster providing you with a simulation of the questions asked in the paper today. Solve, understand, discuss and feel free to ask your queries in the comments or Whatsapp groups.

All the Best, prepare well 🙂
