SBI has Declared the Vacancy for Probationary Officer and this time the total no of vacancy has been increased respect to previous year so there will be more competition because after all this SBI PO Exam and believe me the level of exam and No of Applicant both will be upto neck. So my suggestion if want to really get selected in this exam start preparing an work on Speed and Accuracy.
Few Tips :-
- First get familiar with the SBI PO Exam you can find the pattern of the exam below where I have explained the Question pattern of Previous Year SBI PO Prelim Exam.
- What are the basic material required to crack SBI PO exam because planning is necessary when you are preparing for a exam in which a huge crowd is going to participate and you have to compete with them.I will also provide material and there are various website which provide the whole study material.
- Get familiar with all the topics that you need to study (my suggestion see the previous paper of exam and analyse the paper)
- Prepare your own study plan as it is necessary to make your own study plan because it is you who is going to prepare and you know about yourself very well (My mantra is first go to the subject in which you are not comfortable like for someone it can be aptitude some participant find it difficult for someone it can be English those who have not studied in public school or not done any professional courses.)
