sudhey asked,Sir, I have been attending Bank exam past 6-8 months.I find english and GK easy and same time reasoning and quantitive aptitude tough to finsih on time.Is there any shotcuts or tricks while attending the test to get good marks.
Aziz Manva answers,You will need to identify question types in reasoning that you are conmfortable with. Understand that you don't need to complete the entire reasoning section. You just need to clear the cut-off for Reasoning Similarly in Quant, you should try and target BODMAS as well as charts
777 asked,How many Vaccancies are there now?
Aziz Manva answers,That information will only be available from each participating bank's website
arunoday asked,sir, what do you mean when you say that you don't need to complete the entire reasoning section?
Aziz Manva answers,I mean that you can still go through to the next round even if you don't attempt all 50 questions in Reasoning. This is because the exam has sectional cut-offs. So, even if you attempt 40 questions and get 35-37 right, that is better than attempting 50 questions and getting only 40-42 right
sudhey asked,Is there any website which u know where I can try mock test , the one which is there in IBPS is not working .
