What to expect In Computer Aptitude In Bank PO Exams

Since last year SBI PO and IBPS PO exams had some slight changes in exam pattern, you may all have heard Computer Aptitude has been changed from General/Banking awareness section to Reasoning section in both SBI PO and IBPS PO exams. Now Reasoning and Computer aptitude carry around 60 marks in weightage with 45 questions. Total number of questions from four sections in the Mains exam has also been reduced to 155, with a total mark of 200, previously it had been 200 questions with one mark each. Many students are a little confused by the change and knowing this we are trying to provide some details on the new changes in the Computer Aptitude exam paper.

Reduction In Question But Increase In Time.

That’s good news if you don’t think that much but it’s not if you think deeply. Over the past few years a number of people attending these exams have raised almost 10 lakh students to appear for these exams and examination boards have decided to toughen the question paper so that only good deserving candidates enter as bank officers. Last year’s question paper was tough and only good candidates with high scores were selected. So reduction in question numbers and increase in time won’t be of much help if you haven’t taken preparation seriously. You need to prepare properly and study all concepts.
