Hi Varun,

I am really happy that i came to know about this blog from my friend when i am preparing for Bank PO exams..
i am daily visitor to your blog, i have told about this to all of my friendsas it is very useful.

I have attempted OBC bank PO exam General awareness section better than i expected as i followed only your blog but still i am not satisfied of my attempt.Is there any other way to prepare for the same because the questions are unexpectable in Bank PO exams.

Hi Krishan,
Thanku for your complement....
I don't know How many Bank PO exams have you attended????
I thing i have to be tell to Bank PO Aspirants - Bank PO/clerks jobs are not come all of a sudden.It will take some time...you must have patience.
For every exam you attempt, if you are not satisfied... (or) if ur not qualified...you will be known that some thing you were lagging behind in the exam...
it may be any one of the section(English,GK,...) or
Time management or etc...it may be anything.
Try to overcome the problem in your next exam that you faced in the previous exam.
If you do that only you are able to succeed in your exam.
This is the only Mantra to Success your heights.
