    Re: How to prepare for bank exams while pursuing B.E.?

    Yes you can apply for bank exams especially for the probationary officer exams. Most of the banks have large number of vacancies for probationary officers every year and engineering degree holders are eligible to apply for this exam. Only rider attached to that is you need to present the degree certificate at the time of interview. As engineering graduates, there is a potential advantage for you in preparing for Bank PO exams especially because of your experience in writing entrance examination and your relative better practical experience in solving mathematical problems. So definitely final year BE students can apply for PO exam provided you submit the degree certificate and pass with minimum 50% marks in the final exam. Please prepare by enrolling to some PO exam coaching centers, there are programs available by post also. You can attempt a lot of old exam papers and it is relatively easier to crack compared to other engineering entrance exams.

    To appear bank exam one needs to have a bachelorís degree with at least 60% of marks. As you are pursuing your BE, bank clerical exam is one option you should look in to and after completing your BE, bank PO, and Managerial exams can also be attempt by you. In the mean time join a coaching class, as the competition is very high and every one appearing for the exam tent to be well prepared. There are many good institutes in the country offering coaching classes for the same. Math, analytical and verbal reasoning, English language, etc will be asked in the examination. You must solve as many sample question papers as possible. Purchase books for references available in the market and practice regularly. Some books which you can refer are Bank recruitment tests by Dr. Lal and Bhatnagar, Kilt for Bank recruitment test, published by Dhillon group etc.

    From this year onwards, the indian bank association will be conducting a common entrance test for recruiting banks.
    20 PSU banks will be participating in this common test. The scheme will become effective from 1 june 2011.
    Now the syllabus for bank PO is divided into following sections:- Quantitative Aptitude, English, Test of Reasoning/Mental Ability, General Awareness
    and Computer profeciency.
    For Quantitive aptitude you shoul refer NCERT books. Also for Quantitive aptitude and reasoning there are good books available in the market by R S Aggrawal.
    For general awareness read english newspapers and magzines like india today , frontline.
    With a proper planning and strategy you can definitely clear tha Bank PO exam.
