Expected Cutoff for Reasoning and Numerical Ability sections IBPS Clerk Prelims 2015

 The expected cutoff for Reasoning section of IBPS Clerk Prelims is 9-12.

  • In Reasoning Section , you need to attempt 15-18 questions accurately to be very sure to clear the sectional cutoff as well as the overall cutoff.
  • This means you need to attempt roughly 50% of the questions with 100% accuracy to crack the sectional cutoff for Reasoning.
  • Give 20 minutes to solve Reasoning section.
  • Reasoning should be attempted in middle of exam. i.e. after Numerical Ability and before English language.
  • Focus on questions from Seating Arrangement and Liner arrangement. They will have 10 questions in total and will take roughly 5-8 minutes to attempt.
  • If puzzles aren’t your thing focus on solving Inequality, Syllogisms and blood relation questions.
  • Glance over Coding Decoding question and if you get the logic while glancing, go for it. Do not sit in the exam hall trying to crack the code for 5 minutes and then realize you have no time left for other questions.

The expected cutoff for Numerical Ability section of IBPS Clerk Prelims is 7-9. 

  • In Numerical Ability you need to attempt 12-14 questions to be sure to clear sectional cutoff. This means you need to attempt 35-45% questions with 100% accuracy. 
  • Give 20-25 minutes to solve Numerical Ability section. 
  • Since numerical ability involves a lot of calculation, it should be attempted first.
  • Numerical Ability will have to DI. Click here to read tips on DI to see how to pick up the easier one and get 5 marks without breaking a sweat.
  • 5 questions are expected from number series. Apply the same concept as Coding Decoding. If you get the logic while reading, go for solving it. If not, it is better to leave it and focus on questions from arithmetic.
  • For Speed Calculation questions, memorize tables till 25, square till 30 and cubes till 20.
  • If you are weak in calculations , leave it and solve quadratic questions instead.

Tips on how to clear sectional Cutoff IBPS Clerk Prelims 2015

  1. The order of attempt should be Numerical, Reasoning and English.
  2. You can inter change Numerical and English. The weaker section should be attempted first.
  3. Read all the questions: Owing to nervousness and extreme pressure, while attempting examination, we tend to forget every strategy and instead focus solely on solving each and every question in front of us. This situation is exacerbated in online exam where you can see one question at a time. Do not fall for this trap. Instead make a rule to read the question in first 15 seconds and deciding whether you have come across that kind of question.
  4. If you have come across that kind of question while preparing and feel you can solve it in 45 seconds, then only go for solving it. Else, leave it and head for the next question.
  5. Do not waste precious time double checking answers. Instead use the mark for review option. This option saves the answer and you can come back to the question to review the answer, if time permits.
  6. This will help you read all the questions and pick those which you can answer accurately.
  7. Improving your reading speed will help you enhance your performance drastically. Click here to spend the next 5 minutes to read Tips for increasing Reading Speed and you will see the difference in the original exam.
  8. Please do not try to prove yourself to be a genius by answering all the question. You need to clear the prelims not top them to get awards and accolades. As mentioned above solve 50% questions in reasoning and 35-45% questions in Numerical Ability.
  9. Use the Rough page wisely. Do not randomly write figures on it and make reading of data hard for you. Start from top, use small font and do not hesitate to ask for new rough sheet if necessary.
  10. Take some deep breaths before the start of attempt and reach the center at least 30 minutes  before the commencement of the exam.
  11. Full proof the above strategy by attempting Mock tests.

  30. Hello Sir, Priya this side from Delhi.Can you please tell me the expected cutoff for reasoning section.I could mark only 17, and taking safe side, I am expecting around 13 marks in reasoning.Please help me sir as I am under enormous pressure this time to clear the exam.I could not clear my IBPS PO exam due to reasoning section itself and thus I am afraid for reasoning alone this time.Thanking you in advance!

    • PRIYA it is good you were on the safe side. this years sectional cutoff is expected to be around 11-13. Our suggestion would be to start preparing for Mains. Be positive, because there is no use being negative and doing nothing. Go full throttle in your preparation for Mains. If you clear prelims well and good. If not, the knowledge and the preparation that you did will come in handy for upcoming exams. and mind you there is a plethora of exams in near future. All the best! god bless you

        • Dekhiye this is just our speculation. Hone ko to 15 bhi ho sakta hai. But usko sochke koi matlab nahi hai. Think about a genuine cutoff (6-8 in this case) and if you think you are clearing it, give your best shot for Mains preparation.

    • You may have a problem with Quant. The expected cutoff for SC is 4-6. Since you got 9 questions wrong and 8 correct, your overall score would be 5.75. Lets hope you clear it. But still prepare for Mains. Do not waste time. Knowledge which you acquire never gets wasted.

    Quan- 8(99% accuracy)
    I belong to OBC cata. Is there any chance to clear prelims.

    • Yes there would be statewise cutoff for prelims as well , according to the information supplied to us by IBPS. We will notify if otherwise.

    • Nice attempt Lalit. You will clear sectional cutoffs for Quant and English but you might have an issue clearing overall and sectional cutoffs for Reasoning

  69. I have attempted 16 in Quant’s.sir really r u sure that cutoff will only be b/w 9-10 I mean in po prelims it was 7. Something..so it should no 4or 5 higher than that no?? I’m very confused plz guide me sir..

    • If you have attempted 16 in Quant, then even with 80% accuracy you will clear sectional cutoff quite easily. Do not be worried and start preparing for Mains.

  70. Sir I have attempted only 10 question I maths out of which 2 may be wrong ….what r my chances to clear maths cutoff ?? I m from st category………. Thanks

    • If you have attempted with 90-100% accuracy, you should be able to clear sectional cutoffs very easily. But you might have a problem in clearing overall cutoff. The expected overall cutoff for TN OBC category is 38-42. All the best.

  71. Attempted 79
    Reasoning 35(95% accuracy)
    English 30(95%accuracy)

    • Harti
      If you have started preparing for Mains, expected cutoffs don’t matter. Keep your focus on preparation. You will know the cutoffs once the results are out. If you think right now , you wont do justice to your preparation

    I came from technical background and computer part will be a plus for me in Mains. Will you please suggest a good way to prepare for GA section.
    I am a regular follower of your ‘Bulletin’ section and found it very helpful for competitive exams. You current affair post is what I enjoyed most. Keep posting and guide.
    Thanks. 🙂

    • Thanks alot Saurabh for the kind words. For GA section, we would suggest keep reading current affairs, read newspapers (The Hindu or Economic times) daily. Apart from that start referring magazines like Pratiyogita Darpan/ Chronicle. Not only will reading these magazines keep you updated with current affairs, they would also help you increase your reading speed. Which comes in very handy at the time of the exam. All the best for your Mains attempt.

    • You have the slightest chance to clear sectional cutoff for Quant. The expected cutoff is
      Numerical – 7-9
      Reasoning – 10-12
      English – 8-10

    • There is definitely a chance. If you Math is 100% accurate, you will crack sectional cutoffs for all. Overall cutoff will go around 42-44

      • Hello sir i attended for only 50 overall

        Total attemp-50
