In this post I am going to tell you about the latest IBPS Clerk Exam Pattern 2016. IBPS has recently announced the dates for the IBPS Clerk Exam 2016. Therefore for those students who want to begin their preparation for IBPS Clerks, it is the right time.
IBPS has changed the exam pattern of IBPS Clerk Exam from 2015 and now the exam is being conducted in two phases. These two phases are preliminary and Mains Examination. It is still not clear whether interview will be conducted for the clerk recruitments or not. Recently it has been announced by the government that there will not be interview for Group C and D posts in central government.
It is also expected that the same will be applicable in banks also.
The latest and changed exam pattern of IBPS clerk in 2016 is expected to be as under.
Phase I - Preliminary Examination
There will be 30 questions each in the English Language and Numerical Ability sections and in Reasoning Ability there will be 35 questions. Hence there will be a total of 100 questions of 100 marks in preliminary examination. The duration of the exam will be 1 hour.
Phase II – Main Examination
General Awareness (with special reference to Banking Industry)
In the mains examination there will be 40 questions in each of the section and the total time available will be 2 hours. The paper will be of 200 marks.
In clerk exam of IBPS the questions normally remains very easy. However lacs of students appear in this exam and only a few thousands get final selection. Hence the competition is quite tough. But for well prepared students it is not difficult to clear the exam. Therefore you should start your preparation as early as possible for the exam.
