Now let’s view these topic in detail.


IBPS English compared to other Exam like SSC-CGL/LIC AAO/RRB

1. In SSC there is a separate section of Idioms and Phrases but in IBPS Exam they don’t ask direct question on Idioms and Phrases
2. IBPS’S Vocabulary based questions are based on passage so one can find the answer easily from passage.
3. Unlike SSC, there are no questions on spelling correction, direct-indirect speech, and active passive voice.
4. In SSC there are 5 separate para jumbled question but in IBPS one para jumble contains 5 question this section is also easy and less time consuming.
5. Here Fill in the blank is little bit tougher compared to SSC exam as it contains 2 bracket in a single question.
6. Here Passage is also extremely lengthy and subject of the passage is mostly related to economy.

2. Paper set by Arahant Publication/Kiran Publication/BSC Publication.
3. Previous Years Paper of different Competitive Exam.

Grammar Part

      #1.       Sentence Correction

To solve this section in exam you need to have extremely good knowledge of Grammar and must have good practice of questions otherwise try to avoid these questions because it will cost you loss of marks.
To solve this section read these topics from Grammar:-
  •  Preposition
  • Subject-Verb-Agreement
  • Types of sentence
  • Tense and their types
  • Parts of Speech
  • Parallelism

      #2.       Fill in the Blanks

This section is little bit easy compared to sentence correction but only problem with this section is you need have good knowledge of vocabulary or have good understanding of English language because there will be two brackets in one question and more than one option will look appropriate for the question so don’t be confuse, if you don’t know the answer don’t guess.
