    Hi Akash,


    As you want to prepare for bank exam, you need to concentrate on many things. The exam is going to be really tough without practice. Preparing for bank exam needs lots of practice and by having good grip on all the topics increases your probability of passing the written exam.


    For any bank exam these are the topics you need to be perfect:


    General English


    General Knowledge


    Computer Skills


    Reasoning


    Quantitative Aptitude


    As you get prepared for all these topics and making a good practice you can crack the written exam. After written exam they may conduct Group discussion and then interview. For group discussion you need to be confident and bold enough to speak in front of many people. For the interview the communication skills and your confidence are important.


    So make a habit of practicing these things and give your best in the exam.


    Thank You,

    All the Best.

    Hi Akash,

    I am R dogra. I am also preparing for bank exams. Going for banking sector job is a best option to get good career growth with job security. For finding the best options you can appear in bank PO entrance exams. You can prepare for IBPS PO exams where you can get an opportunity to select in 19 nationalized banks. If you get valid score in this exam then you can give interview for these banks and appoint as a probationary officer. Or else you can try any other bank PO exam like SBI.

    There are three steps involved in selection process of PO. First of all you have to take written test, then Group discussion process and then final interview. Cracking the written test is most important and you have to prepare well for that. For preparing the written exam you can refer to best books and many online course where you can get complete study material and tips to clear the exam.

    About the courses, You can take coaching classes for the bank exams or can go for online course like www(dot)wiziq(dot)com/course/2156-prepare-for-bank-railways-and-ssc-exams. Here you can get online complete study material for bank po exams.

    Thanks.
