TEST PATTERN
A typical bank PO exam comprises of the following sections: 

  • General English
  • Quantitative Aptitude
  • Reasoning Ability
  • General Awareness

OUR STRATEGY PLAN FOR BANK PO COURSE CURRICULUM
OUR REASONING TEACHING STRATEGY PLAN:

VISUAL REASONING  STRATEGY  PLAN :

  • In this section of visual reasoning, we will discuss set of the questions that are in the form of figures, designs, drawings.
  • In this type of questions basically, the question is divided into 2 parts:

                                                problem figures
                                                answer figures
      Hence the basic theme in this type of questions lies in the establishment of  similar relationship between the two figures

  Analogy type of questions- We will also discuss problems based on ascending or descending orders. We will discuss questions related on dots, circles, squares cubes etc.

  • We will also discuss mathematical based order questions.
  • We will teach you how to find out figure the moment clock and anti clockwise.In the

    classification questions
    , we will teach you how to find out dissimilar figures i.e odd man out.

    In series question type we will teach you the moment of the figure left to right or east /west /north/south direction .we will also teach you gradually falling downs or ups.
    Cube turning question – in this we will teach you strategies on how cube is taking positions or how it is rotating. How to find out over and around situations.
    Mirror image questions – we will teach you to find the reflection of the design seen in the mirror
    Paper cutting questions – in paper folding question, we will teach you the manner in which the paper is folded or given and hence will to find out the option that would resemble mostly when unfolded

DEDUCTIVE REASONING STRATEGY PLAN:
In this section, the prime importance is given on the concept of argument where the statement follows one another and ultimately gives a conclusion. Hence we will teach you the use of logic to evaluate the arguments.

  •  We will also teach you the way of testing the validity of an argument
  • In this, topic the commonly understood meaning terms are used are not valid here, hence we will teach you how to focus on subject and object so that fact can be factually impossible.
  • We will teach you how to understand syllogisms, in that we have 2 premises and derived conclusion
  • We will teach you all major types of prepositions i.e categorical, hypothetical and disjunctive.
  • We will teach you complex prepositions as well.

INDUCTIVE REASONING STRATEGY PLAN:

  • In this, 2 basic elements in inductive reasoning are premises and inference/conclusion
  • We will teach you all different types of premises counter premises, suppresses premises etc.
  • We will teach you different types of conclusion as well, stated and rhetorical conclusion.
  • We will work on all 3 types of inductive reasoning – generalization. Causation and analogy
  • We will also work on the 8 common fallacies-contradictions, equivocation, circular reasoning, shifting the burden of proof, unwarranted assumptions, personal attack, fallacious causation, appeal to authority.

VERBAL  REASONING STRATEGY PLAN:  

  • In analytical reasoning, we will teach you strategies based on the following topics.  
  • In decision making, a decision has to be taken on a particular situation based on the selection conditions along with exemptions to the conditions. here we will teach you how to compare the condition with the selection criteria and thus will guide you to take the decision.this question type is less of analytical and more of  data organization and the key to solving this question type is organizing the data in a form that facilitates easy comparison,hence to solve this question type the following strategies are enlisted:
  •        List all the primary conditions in a tabular form
  •        List all the exceptions in the same table as the table containing primary conditions.
  •        Read the direction carefully for marking the correct answer.
  •        Try to convert the answer options into  formula type.
  •        Compare the data in the question given and use accordingly to mark the answer.

In matching type of questions, Two or more objects need to be correctly correlated. Hence we will provide you the tips in order to correlate the objects correctly.There is no hard and fast rules for the steps to be followed to arrive at the final answer.However we have designed some strategies which will help you to arrive at the final answer.Following are the tips which will help you to get started:
First of all identify the objects to be matched
Represent the data given in tabular form
Identify the direct clues and enter into the table
Also identify the negative clues such as “not’,”neither” and convert into positive clue

Analytical reasoning questions on arrangements deals with figuring out the arrangements of objects placed in a specific order. Hence we will teach you on how to identify the position and direction in raveling the answer.

Blood relation requires the construction of family hierarchy. We will guide you with the clues in the formation of family tree. We will also teach the pattern in coded blood relations where relationships are depicted in the form of symbols and how to interpret them. Enlisted are some of our tips:
 To solve this question type put all the information in a family tree diagram
 Distinguish generations by depicting them on different levels
 Identify the gendor and mark the same as a symbol
 You have to make sure that gendor relations are same as that in a family tree

In coded statement conclusion, relationship is defined between objects using inequalities. Considering the statements to be true we will teach you how the validity of the conclusion is checked.
 Decode the symbols into inequalities and re-write the same
 Memorise the symbols
 Combine 2 inequalities and combine into 1 if they have a common factor.
 Identify the conclusions which directly follows from the given statement.

In position and rank questions, an order is formed between different objects and a specific position is asked. We will teach you to put the data in a hierarchical format in order to answer the question.following are some of our strategies :
 For questions comparing quantities try to convert the given data into an inequality equation
 For comparing levels try putting datain an hierarchial format.
 Do not assume position if no information is given.

Coding and decoding type of questions is the most popular question type as asked by the banks. Through these questions your ability is judged to decipher the rules used to code a message and we will guide you for the same.following are some of our strategies;
 Write the corresponding number on each alphabet for easy visualization for the possible method.
 Use the answer options for quick identification of the possible answer.

Selection is a very typical analytical reasoning question type which involves selection of a group of objects keeping in mind the given constraints. we will teach you the tips to increase the proficiency ,and the trick of being persistent and arrive at the correct direction.Following are some of our strategies:
 In this question type proficiency improves with practice
 Be persistent and try to arrive at the correct answer.
 List down all the possible combinations using a decision tree format.
 Strike out all the possible combinations which are not applicable.

In verification, the question is set to test your detective skills. We will teach you how to segregate the true and false statements and to make assumptions.following are some of our strategies:
 Identify one statement and assume the same to be true or false
