Friend, Whether Bank PO or clerical, exam are not difficult. Only hard work
and more practice is important to crack the bank eaxm.To solve
previous papers of banks. speed to complete the exam in time should be maintain.

Strategy to prepare for Banking exams-

If you are preparing for PO exam, A written test for a PO exam consists of 2 parts, objective part and Descriptive part.The objective part consists of four sections namely, English language test, quantitative ability, Reasoning and General Awareness/ Marketing aptitude.

225 questions in 135 minutes comes out to be 36 seconds per question. If you can attempt 175-185 questions with 90 percent accuracy, youíve done a good job.

the General awareness/ Marketing aptitude section and there wonít be much to think or solve in it. Just see the question and mark the answer.Attempt as many questions as you can in this section (only if youíre sure of the answer) but you should be able to complete the section in 25 minutes (20 minutes would be excellent).

The next section English and I generally the first 9-10 questions in it will be that of comprehensive passage. So I would recommend leaving that part of the questions as the rest of the section is pretty Basic English which is very easy. Again you should be able to complete this section in 20-25 minutes.

with 2 sections in 40-50 minutes and left with another 135 questions which should be done in 85-95 minutes.
Depending upon your strength, go for either Reasoning or Quantitative but remember to solve the easiest questions first. Any thing that requires serious calculation in Quant or serious thinking in Reasoning should be left behind at first and come back to it if time permits at the end.

Coming to the time for these 2 sections, 50 questions in Quantitative should be completed in 40 minutes which leaves out 45-55 minutes to solve 75 questions in Reasoning. Donít neglect the non-verbal part in Reasoning as there would be atleast 15 questions from it.

If this is your firstattempt for PO/ clerical exam, then this method would work well.
