General Awareness Preparation Digest | Strategy & Sources


Dear Students, most of the mains level examinations that are closing in on you call for the need to focus on general awareness that makes a significant part of the exams. Having the key points all grasped helps attempt the maximum number of questions in the minimum time as one doesn't need to perform the complex calculations to settle for the answers. Unlike other sections, it only takes seconds to read the question, if you know the answer, you will mark the correct answer and skip otherwise. So, it's pretty clear that turning a blind eye to this section can actually put you in a dicey situation and to be on the safe side, you need to get everything set before the exams take place. 

General Awareness takes in banking awareness, static general knowledge, and current affairs of the past 6 months. Taking into account the questions asked in the General Awareness Section of recent examination, we can conjecture that even the static and banking awareness questions are based on the events that have been in the news a little while back. In essence, unless one knows the historical background or the geographical location of events reported, they will convey little of the value of importance. So, one should have detailed information about the pickup lines of the recent events, if they are to serve any purpose.

Avoid the habit of ignoring the everyday news, you only end up lying crushed under a pile of news when the exams are near. Read everyday news with an informed mind so that you only need to revise them in the end. And to save your precious time, we provide you with Adda247’s “Daily GK Update” (Available in both Hindi and English languages) that incorporates only the news that is important from the point of view of competitive examinations. Lastly, go through the Monthly Capsules provided by Bankersadda for both Current Affairs and Banking Awareness and you are ready to ace the General Awareness Section of the upcoming banking examinations.
