SBI-PO Study Plan: Reasoning section

Posted by Jasleen Behl
SBI-PO MCQ exam is divided into four sections:
General Awareness - 50 ques
Data Interpretation - 50 ques
Reasoning - 50 ques
English - 50 ques

Today I will cover only Reasoning section thoroughly and soon I will cover other sections too. For SBI-PO and SSC too, reasoning is a scoring subject. So you should leave this section and try to cover its topics first and then proceed to other sections.


In reasoning section, the major part is of verbal topics like inference conclusion, sullogism, data sufficiency etc. From last few years the weightage of section is almost same. Just little changes. Analyze it thoroughly and try to make your study plan accordingly.
