Baroda Manipal Test Pattern

Unlike regular banking exams involving OMR sheets, this is not a written examination but an

online test

  • Logical aptitude / reasoning
  • Quantitative / numerical aptitude
  • English language
  • General Awareness

Candidates will have to attend around 160-200 questions within 2 hours.

Cutoff & Marks

A total of

200 marks
is allotted for the online aptitude test.For each wrong answer, negative mark is awarded (could be 0.25)

Based on the performance in test, cutoffs will be fixed & aspirants shall be called for group discussion & interviews.

Last year, the cutoff scores ranged from 35 – 90 (from the data we collected).

Difficulty level:

BOB states the questions to be of advanced level.It could due to the limited no. of seats available per batch.

We contacted few candidates who sat for the last year`s test.

Though they were not able to recollect the question paper, most agreed that reasoning & quantitative aptitude sections played the tricky part.

Since the period to prepare for baroda manipal`s test is short we suggest registrants to devote extra time for those two papers during preparations.
If you have appeared for IBPS common exams, make use of those guides/books to practice.With just 2 weeks left for the test, concentrate on trying out as many problems possible.

Incase you are confused - see list of topics to prepare for each section (our compilation/ syllabus of subjects to touch for bank exams)


The first batch of students are expected to join baroda manipal school of banking`s campus at bangalore in August or September this year.

So in all probability one can look forward to the

test results by July end
that shall give way for GD & interviews in August 2012
