SBI PO Jobs Written Test – No more Maths Papers !


jobs in state bank of india,sbi exam pattern,sbi test papers,sbi quantitative aptitude,sbi maths test Candidates interested in applying for jobs in State bank of India have a reason to smile as the bank had recently made changes to their exam pattern. SBI has scrapped the mathematical/ quantitative papers for its Probationary Officers recruitment announced last month leaving more room to test candidates on logical reasoning & data analysis skills.

 

The Test : As per recruitment notice for officer jobs in State bank of India & their associate banks, the exam pattern given was -

1) Test of English Language
2) Test of General Awareness, Marketing & Computers
3) Test of Data Analysis & Interpretation
4) Test of Reasoning (High Level)

 

Test of Reasoning : The recent SBI recruitment for 4500 Probationary officers saw the inclusion of Test of Reasoning paper in place of Quantitative aptitude/ Numerical ability, which is a standard part of many competitive exams in India, including bank exams.This could be due to the change in the test pattern made by SBI, says an article published in Business line.

 

Decision Making : Now, with this change the bank looks to extract & test the reasoning and decision making skills.This seems to be a welcome move by SBI as bank officers will have to choose & decide between various available options for which their analysis, logical reasoning & decision making skills are taken into account in written exams.

 

No Maths.Easy? Although, the removal of maths papers from SBI officer recruitment exams would enable more eligible candidates with no exceptional maths knowledge to apply, it is also mentioned - Test of Reasoning would be of high level !

 

Hence, bank job aspirants will now have to prepare extensively for reasoning & data analysis tests, as the competition for bank jobs is increasing & SBI remains the first choice for many, even after the introduction of IBPS common exam

why dis maths paper has been removed??????? it should be there..........

No Manisha, I think u r wrong there is maths under data analysis section. But unlike quant, i.e being asked before, number of questions is limited approx 20. But the candidate need not prepare that much for data sufficiency type of questions. this will be asked only in the next exam and will be applicable to those who clear the first test (reasoning, GK, Maths, English)

nirupama said...

why it is removed,should be there as PO's are not the part of administrative services.

pankaj said...

maths paper should not be removed. instead of it they could remove the english paper because it is easy to speak in english as compare to english written paper. so there is no need of english paper but maths is important for PO's job.

paneymoses said...

indianbuzz said...

I agree with u Pankaj, it should be the english that should be exempted... as done in Bank of India Exams........ ,

I think it's not a great matter that math has absorbed form the exam of SBI PO.If a student wants this job he should fight against all the terms and conditions of exam.That is i think excellency.

sneha said...

this is absolutely wrong the maths section was quite easy. Instead of that the g.k. section should have been eliminated.

I don't find any value added service done by SBI after removing the maths paper. They should reduce the number of questions asked in the paper. 200 questions in 2 hrs is quite difficult. That too when pie diagrams, graphs and reasoning diagram related questions are asked.... Rathish
