Have you ever thought of scoring high or
full marks in English or is it still a dream for you? Some students try to
clear only sectional cut-off in this particular section just because they think
they are not good enough in English, which in turn, decreases their overall
score, making it harder to cross the overall cut off.
English won’t be a nightmare anymore, in fact it is gonna be the most scoring subject from now on.

I Kratika have cleared IBPS PO 2019 Exam, RBI Assistant 2019-20 exam, IBPS Clerk-19 exam with utmost accuracy in English section. Screenshots are
posted for reference below. I will share some important handy tips and my personal
strategy to help you boost your score to a larger extent.

Before you read further, I would like you
to know that I am launching a
“Lockdown Special Free Crash Course” for aspirants starting from April
5th. The course consists of Vocabulary, Grammar, articles, descriptive test and
high level practice set so that aspirants can make the best of their time in
this lockdown. The course would be from basic to high level so that students can
maintain the pace.
Join here –  @EnglishKendra
 
Let’s begin

1. Have a firm grasp of Grammar-
 
Most of the questions like fillers, errors
are based on the grammatical portion. According to the recent exam trend,
grammar based questions are being asked in the RC, in the form of filler/error.
In mains exam, 80% of the questions are based on grammar someway or the other.

So grammatical portion is not only important for prelims but also an over-all score
booster for mains.
EK  publishesThe Hindu Editorial article with RC,cloze test,vocab,error detectionon daily basis with detailed solution.You must follow it on a regular basis.Make it a study ritual and witness the miracle.It’s a panacea that will make you score the highest in English.
Let’s take a look at the questions that have been
asked in IBPS PO mains examination.

Direction: In the given question, a part of
the sentence is printed in bold. Below the sentence, three alternatives to the bold
part are given which may help improve the sentence. Choose the option that
reflects the correct use of the phrase in the context of the sentence. In case
the given sentence is correct, your answer is (E), i.e., “No correction required”.
 
*More than anything, it is the human cost
of disasters that are the most compelling argument for action.*
i. the human cost of disasters that the most
compelling.
ii. the human cost of disasters that is the
more compelling.
iii. the human cost of disasters that is the
most compelling
A. Only i
B.
Only ii
C. Only iii
D. Both ii and iii
E. No correction required
 
Solution : 
“Cost” is a singular subject,
thus the auxiliary verb “is” should be used. Thus, option C is the correct
answer. “More” represents comparative degree, hence, “the”
cannot be used before it, hence, (ii) is incorrect.
Thus, option C is the correct answer.
 
If you struggle with the grammar section,
we are bringing basic Crash Course for Grammar which will be Free of Cost, so
that aspirants can make the most of their time during this lockdown.

2. How to tackle RC ( Reading Comprehension) –

Most of the students struggle with the RC.
To tackle the RC in least amount of time, one should concentrate enough to
understand the plot/ story in one go. If the concentration breaks in between,
one has to re-read the whole RC, which is in itself very time consuming.To get the RC in a single read, one must have a habit of reading. Without the reading habit, RC might seem a tedious task.Also, before reading the whole RC, one should always go through the questions. Once you go through the questions, you already know what is being asked and the chances of reading the RC again and again lessens.To tackle this section,follow The Hindu Editorial article with RC,cloze test,vocab,error detection which is published by EK on daily basis with detailed solution.You must follow it on a regular basis.Make it a study ritual and witness the miracle.

3. Have a decent knowledge of vocabulary-
 
Vocabulary is the second most important and
easiest portion to score marks. One should be well versed in this portion.
Mostly, vocab based questions are asked in RC ;a synonym or antonym of a
certain word is asked. Sometimes, an individual question (set of 4/5) based on
vocab is asked too.
To enhance the knowledge of vocabulary, one
must refer to well known books. The most recommended method would be reading the
English newspaper.

Let’s look at a question based on vocab
that has been asked in IBPS PO mains examination.
 
Which of the following word given in the options
should fill the blank marked as (A) in the second segment (II) of the passage, to
make it grammatically and contextually meaningful? Note that the word should also
fill both the blanks of the following two sentences to make them contextually meaningful.


(i) _________ to popular myth, the majority
of accidents are not caused by speeding or drunkenness.
(ii) The villagers expressed regret that their
habitations lacked road connectivity and other basic amenities ________ to the government’s
tall claims.
A. Complying
B. Contrary
C. Complimentary
D. Cursory
E. Commissioning

Solution
 B
Complimentary- approving
Cursory- casual
Commissioning- authorizing
In the given question, we need to find a word
which fits into all the three blanks. “contrary”, which means “in contrast to”
is the best fit word for the blank.“Complying” and “complimentary” would convey
a meaning opposite to what is required. The words given in the last two options
will convey an appropriate sense. “Contrary” fits in both the blanks of the given
two sentences. In the first, it means that what is usually believed with reference
to accidents does not actually hold true. In the second sentence, it means that
opposed to the government’s promises, the habitations of the villagers lacked
road connectivity and other basic amenities.
 
It’s clear that one must have a strong catch
on vocabulary to answer questions like these.
In the upcoming Free Crash Course starting from April
5th, we’ll provide Hindu Vocabulary compilation, explained in detail with root words
so that one doesn’t have to mug-up all the words. All the grammar rules (frequently asked) including
practice sets, will be provided on the same platform (that is, @EnglishKendra
 )
so that you don’t have to look
it up anywhere else. Follow EK for daily updates.
 
4. How to tackle Parajumble –
 
There are always 5-6 small statements given
and the examiner expects you to arrange them in a particular order so that it
makes the paragraph meaningful. One should always read the statements one by
one, with the clear understanding.
The statement which seems introductory to
you i.e. a statement which introduces something, be it a government scheme/ a
story or anything, that statement would be the first statement.

The statement which has the conclusion in
it i.e. the climax/closing/ result of something which is being talked about in
the paragraph, would be the last statement of the paragraph.
Now coming to the remaining statements, one
should have the knowledge of Noun/ Pronoun/ Prepositions to arrange them in the
order.
Remember, the order of your statements
should show progression of an activity. So the order would be Introduction <
progression< climax.
 
 
 
5. How to attempt Cloze Test-
 
Cloze test is the section where aspirant’s
grammatical and vocabulary based skills are checked. Sometimes, only vocab
based questions are asked while sometimes a same word is given with different
propositions and different form of verbs, out of which the aspirant has to
choose the correct option.
If you prepare well for grammar portion and
vocab portion, close test would be an easy but to crack.
There are plenty of high level close test
on the website EK. F
ollow The Hindu Editorial article with RC,cloze test,vocab,error detection which is published by EK on daily basis with detailed solution.You must follow it on a regular basis.It’s a panacea that will make you score the highest in English.
6. How to tackle Descriptive in Mains Examination-
 
Descriptive test, if prepared well can be
very fruitful. The descriptive exam consists of an application/letter (10
marks) and a passage (15 marks) making it the most scoring section. One has to type
the answer on the keyboard in given time frame (30 minutes).
As there is time frame, one should be
decent enough in typing to complete the test and check the answers in the given
time frame.
One of the grave mistakes that students
make is not to mark the question. As there are options given, out of which you
have to choose one. You should always mark the question number before writing
the answer.
Grammatical mistakes impact the whole
application/ essay negatively. One should be well versed in grammar to avoid
the mistakes.
You should not necessarily use extra ordinary
vocabulary, even if with the decent knowledge of vocabulary you can score well.
The essay/ application should be clear enough to the examiner that he gets your
point. Your essay/ application should not be ambiguous.
 
We’ll be providing you detailed explanation
of the answers and tell you how to score maximum in this section. Previously
asked questions along with their answers and explanations would be discussed on
the same platform too. Keep following (
