I am a graduate and working with a pharma co. as Territory Manager. Though I am very inclined towards the Bank PO job. I want to know how can I prepare for the exams? While giving exams of different banks I find out that in QA and DI most of the question are easy to crack but I always face problems in managing the time for other sections. Also, my reasoning solving skill is below average. Kindly, give some suggestions for time-management and enhancing my reasoning ability skill. Regards, Mohit Mohit 2011-01-26 01:39:09 560
Dear Krishnan, Don't lose hope, But pracice more on QA from Different sources like Aditya , Trishna Series. Apart from these you need to practice the speed mathematics for different short cuts. If poss. go for a coaching. Raja Vikram - Author 2011-01-27 07:45:29 563
Dear Mohit, Its good to listen from your end that you are working in a proffesion where Time management is very much required, Please apply the same techniques here too but in a different manner. Take some practice papers and fix the time, do not get up for anyother work while doing these. Finish the paper and then turn on to other works. Practice for at around 50-75 tests for perfection and to get an entry as P.O. Raja Vikram - Author 2011-01-27 07:51:13 564

Dear Animesh, It depends upon different criterias to get a call from a bank. But you need to clear the required cut off in each section which you are doing. If you can work something more on English and reasoning you may get a call easily leaving behind good marks in QA. Raja Vikram - Author 2011-02-16 07:27:40 602

Ganesh 2012-08-08 03:47:28 1457
Hi Ganesh, Good to see your passion for Banking. There are two things to know for 1. you are in IT sector ( Technical or non) 2. Operational. If it is 1. then you can write an exam for IT staffing of Banks or if you want to move operational then prepare for PO. Kindly read newspapers, GK magazines and practice good for GK questions. QA is highly imporatnt for a banking sector. Work more on it with aptitiude books of entrance exams for 3-4 hrs daily and 6-8 hrs on weekends. Try to understand the concept or logic then for sure you can crack it. All the best. Raja Vikram - Author 2012-08-10 01:07:27 1463
