    HI.. to do well in the bank probationary officers examination you should have real practice in the aptitude and English also ,what you have to do is practice as many questions as possible and also be very useful to solve the previous years question papers and also many other questions of some of the mba examinations like mat,xat and cat because many times in the po examination old questions of these examination are given ,
    you can also practice from the materials of the time institute that will surely help in improving your knowledge and also practice a lot and improve your speed because in such kind of examinations speed matters a lot and that can even decide your rank

    These exams are based on your aptitude,mental ability,reasoning power,mathematics and finance knowledge,english and vocabulary....
    to clear the exam successfully you need to improve your above skills....you can prepare from the book "Verbal and non-verbal reasoning"(R.S Aggarwal) which is the best book to use in this regard.....
    try to get access to previous year question papers to have a better knowledge of the exam pattern and level of examination...

    Re: What should I do to be successful in Bank PO and Clerical Exams?

    see firstly to clear bank exams you should be graduated from any course and from any universities it doesn't depend upon whether you are from science side or commerse or arts.for bank PO exams you should have some general awaireness,your reasoning ability should be good and ofcourse you shoud be good in mathmatics.now for reasoning ability you should try couple of questions.for general awareness read the newspaper daily and see the news on T.V. and for mathmatics as you applied several times you see that you should know the basics and for that just read the NCRT books from 6-10 nd your basics will be cleared.i know reading the books of four years is slightly difficult but you dont have to solve every question just read the theory and try 2 or 3 questions of it,and reading the summary given after every chapter helps a lot.
    thaks nd all the best for next try.

    Hi friend,
    Minimum eligibility for the bank po exam is you need to have a graduation with minimum 60 marks and dates are different for different bank po recruitments so you must mention here that for which bank you want to apply them i will provide you dates for that.

    Re: What should I do to be successful in Bank PO and Clerical Exams?

    First, remember that these exams are nation wide competitive exams and thousands of students prepare for them , if there would have been short cuts , then anyone would get selected, it is only your hard that is going to help you.



    i want to share some of my experience in this matter see

    * There is no short cut for success

    * Try to solve as much as question you can practice a day and try to increase the question in next day.

    *Try to understand fully the question you solved that mean go as much deep you can go

    *in exam try to put those answers only in which you are sure as negative marking for wrong answer decrease a individual marks a lot

    *Be calm and cool in examination hall

    *stop reading before 1 hour as it may lead you in confusion......


    Guides : Although there are separate books for each of the papers,Practical guides & Previous years solved question papers of bank exams are favorites among the preparing lot.The practical Work-guides by Kiran publications give a clear understanding of the problems & their answers.Priced around Rs.200-250


    Few more helpful books are as follows –

    Upkar`s SBI Clerical Cadre Recruitment Exam

    Ramesh`s Bank Clerical Exam(Solved Papers)

    Upkar`s SBI PO Examination (Solved Papers)

    Ramesh`s Bank PO. Previous year Solved Papers

    Test of Reasoning/Reasoning Ability by R.S.Agarwal (Verbal & Non-verbal)

    Quantitative Aptitude by R.S.Agarwal

    Hi!! For any competitive exams like Bank P.O etc TIME MANAGEMENT plays a crucial role, students have good theoritical knowledge but still they can't clear exam because they are unable to finish paper on time solution is PRACTICE, PRACTICE & PRACTICE..just solve last year Bank P.O papers , take more sample papers from CSR(Compitition Success Review - Monthly magazine). On Exam, first you need to scan the paper & solve questions to your strongest area then choose questions from your week area. You can also join Good Instt. like T.I.M.E, CL for Bank P.O Preparation. All the Best!!

    The Bank's PO and Clerk level exam is the test of student accuracy and speed. It is the test of your stress. In short time how accurately you answer. The question asked is not very tough but what you need to do is only practice. There are many question set available in the market as mentioned above go through that.
    Practice at home in the front of watch & make the environment like examination hall in the home as well. Do not get disturb in between and check how accurately u solve the question. After 2 hrs you try to solve unsolved problem or left one. practice it for 30 question set seriously. I m sure you will be able to crack its written.
    All the best.

    Bank exam test the speed and accuracy of student. Questions asked in the exam is not very tough.what u need to do is to practice and time management. So in my opinion try to solve the question set of bank exam as much as possible. Practice at home sincerely like you are giving real exam. keep watch in front of u so that u could manage time. After the duration of 2 hrs see what you have scored and see you accuracy rate again and again. At last u must solve left problems and wrong answered question and see what you have done mistake.
    This is the way to get success.
    All the best.

    Re: What should I do to be successful in Bank PO and Clerical Exams?

    Hi, Bank PO & Clerical exams are competitive exams. You need to have an excellent Aptitude, Reasoning skill & Language skill.. For all these you need to practice more. Instead of depending upon the coaching centers we ourselves can start preparing for it. The author I would suggest for all the above skills is R.S.Agarwal. It is the best book which has a detailed explanation in all the sections. The book also contains several problems. So practicing those would help you a lot. Also you will find questions asked in various other exams like CAT, MAT, XAT, SNAP, so concentrate more on those problems. You can also refer Arun Sharma's book for Quantitative Aptitude & it has launched up online courses, you can opt for that also. Coaching will be given by Arun sir & Meenakshi Mam who are famous author for CAT books. For experience you may take up mock MAT exams.. You have online sample tests for MAT. You can practice all those & improve all your skills.

    Dear friend,

    Those candidate have completed their graduation degree from any recognized university are eligible for BANK PO exam.

    They are not require any kind of percentage marks in graduation for this time.

    But your age must be in between 20 to 30 years.Age relaxation is provide only for SC/ST/OBC candidate .For Sc/ST candidate have age relaxation is 5 years and for OBC candidate it is 3 years.

    BANK PO exam consist of two steps 1) Written test 2)Personal Interview.

    For written test you must be prepare for mathematics and general knowledge.Also you must have basic knowledge computer field.

    Every bank set their own criteria .So it is not perfect criteria all BANK PO exam.

    A new restriction has been imposed on the number of attempts for the candidates. For general number of attempts is 4, for OBC it is 7 and for SC/ST

    Thanks

    Practice Practice and Practice is the main key for success in Bank exams.The questions will not be super tough.Main problem remains time management and negative marks.If you practice your aptitude section and reasoning or english,then you can understand which questions to attempt first and which to leave in the exam hall.And the temperament.Never attempt half heartedly if you are having a good exam.If you are having a very poor exam then go for flukes as then you will have nothing to lose.But if your exam is average then do not try to be over ambitious as that may counteract and negative marks will take you down and down.All the best.Hope for the best and keep practising.

    yes , it is somewhat tough to you with science background as the bank exams syllabus will be totally on mathematics , general knowledge , english .

    If you prepare well in arithemetic skills , logical skills , english , general knowledge , aptitude , then it is easy to select for the interview.

    You should be able to solve problems i a shortcut method.

    You shouldbe well known about the prime numbers from 1 to 200

    you shouldbe well known about aquares of numbers from 1 to 100 .

    All the best

    See as to prepare for any exam you have to keep your foot on the correct path. At first you should join any coaching institutes which prepares the students to get in the banking sector, this will help you a lot as you would get correct guidance from the tutors over there, the teachers over there will also guide you with the chapters and topics which are important as for the exam point of view is concerned, and they could also provide you with the model question papers which would give you a brief idea of the type of questions that are likely to appear in the banking exam. See basically practising as many questions as you can will give you confidence , and will also help to prepare for the exam so you should also practice to solve the previous year questions that were asked in the banking exam. To prepare for the maths questions , you could solve questions from RS AGARWAL book of +2, to prepare for accounts you could reference any accounts book, to prepare for current affairs knowledge you can reference the magazine named PRATIYOGITA DARPAN, to prepare for general english you could read any good grammar book, and to prepare for computers questions you could reference any introductory book of computers, and to prepare for reasoning type question try to solve as many questions as you can as it would give an idea of the reasoning type of questions.

    Hi

    its great that you are interested in bank jobs .
    Why dont you go for the IBPS conducted PO exams which is held twice a year.

    You said you have done MCOM and i think it wont be difficult for you to crack IBPS PO exams.
    last year i cracked PO exams and dis is why i am telling you.

    IBPS conducts exams in month of march and sep for PO positions.

    what books you need to refer are as follows:
    1) get a PO question bank from any book stall - this will contain all questions along with answers asked in previous 10 years questions.

    2) banks have 5 sections in which you have to qualify
    1) aptitude - RS Agarwal / M Tyra
    2) reasoning - RS Agarwal
    3) basic english
    4) computers knowledge - any book on basic computers will do
    5) marketing knowledge - again any book specifcaly on marketing will be sufficient
    6) essay writing - mainly on banking topics - news and newspapers

    i wouls asset that you fully concentrate on question bank of good publication , that is sufficient to get thru bank exams.

    dear friend,

    the competition exams in these days are very tough. you can see that there is a very big competition in all the jobs fields. so you have to make you steps very carefully.
    if you failed to crack the bank competition exams then you should carry out your problem, you have to analyze your self.
    you have to understand the nature of the exam.
    you have to prepare well for this exam.
    you have to make a plan and have to prepare according to this plan.
    in the bank exam after you clear the written test, you have to face the interview, so you have to do preparation for the HR interviews.

    by this you can crack the bank exam.

    so best of luck.
