Clear Bank PO Exams

*ENGLISH:

First of all we'll talk about English. Generally the paper is easy if you are well versed with English. But if you are not, don’t worry, you can still clear it. There is a pattern that is followed in this exam. There are certain things which come for sure. These are Antonyms and Synonyms, Comprehensive Passages, Spotting the errors, Jumbled Sentences and Ordering of sentences. Now if you follow a planned approach towards the exam you can easily clear bank PO exams.

1. Synonyms and Antonyms- People think there are n number of words in the vocabulary, how on earth is it possible to know them all. However, the smart way to catch hold of this portion is to Pick up the previous year’s bank question papers and take a note of all the words that have been asked. Now write them on blank sheets one by one. Trust me when you do this, half of the work is done. Because mere reading them from the book won’t help you remember them. so when you do this, the words remain in your mind for a longer duration. Second step is memorizing. Have you ever tried early morning studying?

Yes. I'm talking about getting up early in the morning and just reading those words which you have written. Give them a glance. Then try remembering them. Third step is to use these words in your routine. For e.g.- I try to use these synonyms or antonyms in my conversation as far as possible. Be it Facebook chat or whatsapp or your face to face conversation with your friends. Because when you do so, they stick in your mind. The reason behind this is, when we use these words in our daily communication, our brain tends to form an image related to the conversation in which you have used the words in particular. Like you are sitting on a bench in park with your friend and while talking you have used a word, then next time you hear that word, you'll immediately remember the word and hence will be able to answer it correctly. So this is how you crack this exercise.

2. Spotting the errors- We all know that finding faults in others is in the nature of humans. Haha... So why not put it to better use and clear PO & Clerk Exams? This exercise consists of sentences divided into four parts and one of them has an error or no error in the whole sentence at all. This exercise is completely based on grammar. So the basics should be clear.There are various rules regarding grammar. Usually we talk slang English and tend to go by them in the exams too. This is the line where most of the people go wrong, even though there spoken English is good. The rules based on Noun, pronoun, tense, phrases, adjectives etc all are given in that book. Plus it has sample exercises too. Now what you have to do is, first, carefully read the rules written in the book and try to memorize them. And then start solving them one by one. Initially you will be able to solve only a few but over a period of time you will solve most of them. This is based on practice, so please practice.

3. Jumbled sentences - These are quite tricky. One needs to read the sentence first. The trick here is do not try to solve the question all by yourself, don’t try to find the sequence all by yourself. Bank exams has given you options, just apply the options and one of them will be correct. Most of the candidates try to bring out the sequence and then the look for the matching option. This consumes time and hence they find it difficult to score in here.

4. Ordering of sentences- This is a bit tough as compared to all other exercises. The best way to solve this is to take the question as a narration of a story. That way your brain starts thinking more accurately. Same trick, apply all the options and find out the correct one.
Apart from these regular exercises, there are some questions like sentence improvement, fill in the blanks with appropriate words, etc. You see, when you thoroughly read and practice spotting the error exercise, all these miscellaneous questions are taken care of, so no need to worry much. Just focus on the main four exercises because these are the ones where you can score maximum.
Okay. Now in addition to these, you should listen to English songs. They will enhance the receptivity of your brain as far as English is concerned.

During the exam- the moment you get the question paper, go through it, just give it a glance, and have a good feeling about it. My personal experience says that if you have a positive feeling that you can successfully solve the paper then your chance to clear bank PO,SO & Clerk Exams  has a high percentage.

*GENERAL AWARENESS :

Moving on to the part of General awareness, this is the section where candidates call it as unpredictable questions. But the beauty about this paper is , candidates belonging to all the streams have an equal opportunity to solve this paper. Like students of science, commerce and arts can solve them easily if they have the right approach. In this paper, a pattern has been followed over these years. The portion of current news  holds 60% marks, important days, Currencies, days etc this is the usual pattern. The candidates are worried about current affairs the most.

1. Current affairs - put to use all the resources. Magazines like Competitive success review, Competition 360, etc. (links) Make notes wherever necessary. Read from internet and newspapers. And always be systematic in your work. Do not make notes in a haphazard manner. There should be heading and some detail about it. And if possible, try to read and write so that you have some idea about the news with the first writing itself.

Current Affairs Covers following Section:

The question papers in the last few years have been tough! Not that the difficulty level is raised but the questions are lengthy, hence consume time. Most of the candidates consider this subject as a scoring one, and indeed it is, but where they fail is, they don’t practice enough. This is not a subject where you can go with the attitude of last minute reading or glance. Here you need to put in long hours and solve maximum no of questions in stipulated time. Time and work, Time and Distance, Percentage, Profit and Loss, Ages Problems carry more weight age. Focus on these topics more. Also solve previous years question papers, that too in time limit. This will make you land scoring good marks in math’s and hence you will clear bank exams.
