Strategy To Prepare General Awareness Section For Banking Examinations

With the increased competition in the field of banking examinations, it has now become very important to cover up all the sections for the examinations. One section that can help you bagging graceful marks in these examinations is General Awareness that covers numerous sections in it like Banking Awareness, Static GK, and Current Affairs. If we take a close look at the type of questions that have been asked in these exams in the past few years in General Awareness section then we find that the maximum number of questions were based on the events that had happened in the recent past (3-4 Months) whether it's banking, static or GK. So, students, it becomes vital for you all to cover not only the pickup lines of Current affairs but also the related information that is important from the point of examination.

We have seen in the exam of BOB PO that questions based on the dimension of the notes were asked as demonetization was in news at that time. So, it is pretty clear that examiner has the intention to cover questions based on the events taking place in the recent past. Similarly, questions on Static Awareness too will be related to countries, events or anything that has been in news for a while. For example, there was a news about US and Israel withdrawing from UNESCO. So, the questions asked can be related to the currency, capital, presidents or other important information related to the two countries. For example, there can be a question on Central Bank of US (Federal Reserve). 

One important peculiarity about this section is that you need not take out time separately for its preparation. You can easily learn it in your spare time of your daily routine. Few common practices to prepare GA section include reading a good newspaper on a daily basis and learning from mobile apps/websites in your spare time like breakfast, traveling etc. You have two important examinations queued up to be held in the near future (IBPS PO Mains and RRP PO/Office Assistant Mains) in which you need to perform really well in this section if you want to increase your chances of selection for the mains exam. 

All the Important current affairs on daily basis are covered by us on our adda247 app/ website.  So, you need not rush up for materials in the last few days before the examination, as it helps you prepare the current affairs section on a daily basis. Though we do provide you the GK Power Capsule with the compiled and a well-arranged section covering all the sections of GA like Current affairs, Banking awareness, Static Takeaways, Insurance Takeaways etc. The monthly magazine provided by us can also act as an important tool in one's preparation of GA section. 

Apart from the GA Section, an excellent knowledge of current news also helps you deal with the PI (Personal Interview) more efficiently so you do not give a fumble jumble answer to the interviewee's simple questions. General Awareness also helps you to improve your confidence and personal traits. So, your selection is just the matter of your seriousness and daily efforts that you are putting in your preparation. Keep your spirit up and do well in the examinations.
