Banking jobs have emerged as one of the most sought careers in recent times. Every year, banks in India recruit candidates for various posts. Earlier, each bank would conduct its own exams. However this scenario has changed now. Today we have a common written exam conducted by IBPS for bank probationary officers and clerks. A bank job aspirant should start preparing for bank exams right from their college days for best results.
Start your preparation by analyzing previous year question papers to get information on pattern of the examinations. Usually these tests consist of four sections namely English language test, Quantitative Ability, Reasoning, and General Awareness/ Marketing Aptitude. Candidates are selected based on the written test and are then called for group discussion/ interview.
Candidates preparing for these exams should have a good knowledge of class X level mathematics and can focus on preparation using NCERT books. Reasoning section needs to be practiced extensively to clear the sectional cut off. The candidate should also work on scoring well in the English Language section. The habit of attentively reading a national newspaper daily can help you in preparation for the General Awareness part of the test.
Clubbed with hard work and determination, time management is the key to crack the entry - level test for the Bank PO Exam. Besides being able to strategize time by focusing on the easier sections first, followed by the tough ones, you should also learn the skill to attempt 225 questions in 135 minutes time. A candidate should not waste more than 36 seconds per question.
Since bank employees are expected to work on computers, the exam will contain questions testing basic knowledge in computers as well. The candidate should brush up on computer knowledge before the exam as it can prove to be a high scoring section.
The exam has negative marking. Trying to answer every question without knowing the correct answer is not a wise option. Try to answer about 80% of the questions with at least 90% of accuracy.
