    My friend , English is that kind of subject which needs continuous preparation .
    For the preparation of the antonym & synonym , you should read the daily english news paper and mark out the words which you don't know and know its meaning along with synonyms and antonyms .
    You always kept dictionary with you and any terms you don't know , see its meaning and synonyms , antonyms in the dictionary .
    You have to do this activity daily .
    You have to know atleast five new words everyday with its synonyms & antonyms .

    Questions are asked mainly from the following categories.
    Subject Verb Agreement
    Error Correction
    Sentence Rearrangement
    Fill in the Blanks with Modals, Articles etc
    Answering questions based on Unseen Passages

    Revise often:

    Manage your time table in a way that you take 10 minutes break in each hour of revision. If you find problem in recalling a topic that is of utmost importance, switch to the method of writing and learning. Follow these steps- Look, Say, Cover, Write, and Check as it makes the learning much more effective.

    Try solving at least 5 question papers as it will help you find any difficult areas in the test papers that you have covered and need revision.

    Follow different method for different topics: Revise your notes in the order of importance and difficulty level. There is no point of reading and re-reading the entire book as it will only increase your stress levels. Just scan through the important points, headings, examples, and charts.

    to improve your skill in antonyms and synonyms in bank exam just refer to the previous question papers as the grammatical part is common
    to all the years and there will not be any wide change with that
    and moreover you have to improve your grammatical skills by keeping a dictionary a side which helps you a lot...
