What you need to clear quantitative aptitude in Bank PO exams is speed and accuracy. Now when you are reading this article, it is fairly safe to assume that you want to improve speed to solve those DI questions, those simplifications problems and every random approximation question that takes quite a bigger slice of your time. Together with all our experience as mentors and the feedback received from a number of students, we are sharing some tips to boost your speed and accuracy. In this article we assume that you are just starting your preparation.

Before starting preparation for quantitative aptitude, you should first see the types of questions that were asked in previous year. We have a good repository of those or you can also try a free mock test to get yourself acquaint with the types and level of questions.

Where to Start

Start from the basic mathematics. Do not just jump to mocks or start solving a random chapter and demoralize yourself. Revisit to your school days and learn tables. You should know all the tables till 30 by heart. Learn squares till 30, cubes till 20 and square roots till 10. You should learn major fraction like 1/8 in terms of percentage till 20. 

Bank PO exam has most of the questions from DI in the Mains Exam. The DI can’t be solved quickly if you are slow in calculations or don’t know the fractions. It is therefore very important to work on improving your calculations by learning tables, squares, cubes, square roots and fractions.

The Next Step- Clear Your Basics

Now when you have seen the previous year questions and you know the level of difficulty of the exam, start chapter by chapter and go slow, take your time and clear your fundamentals. Then after learning the concept, solve various types of problems. Set a target time and solve. Think what shortcuts you can apply to the questions. It is very important to clear the basics before using techniques or shortcuts.

Getting Better

After you are well averse with the basics and have grasped the squares and tables, this is time to polish yourself. Start practicing and solving. It is imperative to improve both speed and accuracy. In our opinion, work on accuracy first and practice more to improve speed later. Start attempting mock tests and analyze your performance.In the DI questions, almost everything like averages, fractions, percentage, mean etc. are used. It is advisable if you learn some approximating techniques that will help you in eliminating the option. 

Make a habit of using a stop-watch whenever solving quant. Take tests for actual exam durations of quants like 35 minutes, 25 minutes etc. and try and solve as much questions as you can.

While Attempting the Exam

Question solving involves four basic steps. Reading, understanding, picking up the right method to solve the sum and calculating. You need to get all these right to get the answer quickly. Attempting exam is an art. While reading the question, make sure to read options as well and see how you can use it to solve the sum. Sometimes there are questions which are very difficult and will consume most of your time. You need to know which ones to skip and which ones to attempt. Some questions can be solved without using pen and paper. You need to attempt 70% questions with good accuracy to clear the exam. So if you would skip some questions, you can still make it.

Things You Need to Avoid

· When you are practicing, avoid using a pen while solving Mathematics problems. Try and solve the sums orally. This will not only sharpen your mind but will also help you to have a better understanding of the problem. If you are not able to solve it orally, start using pen and paper.

· Avoid using calculators and start doing calculations in your mind. Keep practicing the short-tricks and learn how to apply them. Start doing approximations.

· While attempting mocks, do not overlook the ones that you got right. There may be a short method to solve the same question. Keep a note of that and start using it.

· Do not rush, read properly and see what is asked in the question and see if there is any short-cut or trick available.

· Do not waste a lot of time in calculations. Skip the lengthier questions since each question carries equal mark.

Again, it is import to keep practicing. There's no substitute for the number of questions you can solve on every topic. The more you will solve, the more you will instantly know which question has what approach and also, you will be able to decide which question you can skip for later or not attempt it at all.
