    For any exam first all you must understand what the structure and pattern of the exam is. You need to be well aware of what you will be tested upon. The bank test will test you on your aptitude level. So you need to be prepared in all the areas related to it. These will include DI, Logical reasoning, Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning. For these you must cover all the topics. Start from simple problems and move on to the higher level problems. You can refer to books like R.S Agarwal and Oswal. These will give tips on how to solve problems quickly. Other than this newspapers and magazines will give you information regarding the General Knowledge section.

    Re: Tips to qualify in Bank Clerks Written Test

    Practice is the short cut for qualifying the bank exam. The banks exam paper can be divided into different areas. The quantitative ability, reasoning and logic, English etc. are some of the areas in the clerical post. You will find the reference books in market or the internet provide you the study material. You can score high in the bank exam with some knowledge and more practice. Time management is the important concept you should take care of. For each section there will be cutoff and the applicant needs to correctly answer. You can give more time to your weak area and answer as many question as you can. To solve the mathematical problems you have to use the easy methods which consumes little time. The coaching centers will help you in preparing for the exam.

    to crack the Bank CLERK exams

    Bank PO is the entry level for to enter into banking sector. Its not that much difficult if you prepare with a plan and by putting hard efforts.

    Most of the bank exam po's will be by written test and interview.

    The written test consists of 5 categories,

    1.Reasoning
    2.Quantitative aptitude
    3.Computer awareness
    4.General awareness
    5.General English.

    You need to qualify in each of these categories individually in order to qualify for the written test.

    There will be negative marking of 1/4 th, so you have to be very careful while answering or choosing the options.

    For computer awareness,basic fundamentals will be enough.
    Introduction to computer
    Memory devices
    Basic internet knowledge
    Ms-office

    For Quantitative aptitude, almost all the questions are direct questions mostly. So you have to learn all the formulas and try to complete the problem in less number of steps.
    Be good at percentages
    profit and loss
    simple and compound interest
    time and work
    time and distance
    hcf and lcm

    For general English, try to read the sentences and understand them in less span of time and at the same time focus on grammar mostly tenses,.

    For reasoning,everyone can do these problems. Only thing or quality that is required is being capable of thinking analytically.

    The more you think with your mind, the less number of time it will be for you to complete the given question.

    For general awareness, it will not be done in a single day to prepare for the exam. You need to study various news papers, magazines.

    You need to have a complete grip 0n
    -national wide politics
    -world wide politics
    -various persons who received awards

    Re: Tips to qualify in Bank Clerks Written Test

    The Questions asked in the Bank Clerk exam are from the following areas.

    1. Numerical Aptitude & reasoning
    2. General English
    3. Basic computer knowledge
    4. Basic Marketing Knowledge
    5. General Knowledge and current issues.

    For General knowledge and current issues special preparation or study is not required. Always keep in touch with news papers.
    Numerical aptitude and reasoning is most crucial part for most of the candidate as it is time consuming. Answer as many questions within the time limit and practice to minimize the time. Always answer the Numerical part at last as all questions carry equal marks. General English includes English grammar and its usage practice as many questions to tackle them. Special attention is required in computer knowledge and marketing knowledge as questions may be asked from any topic
