Quantitative Aptitude
All that you need to do to perform well in the quantitative aptitude section is practice. Learn the basic concepts and practice them well, as for banking exams basic concepts will come in handy rather than tricks. Choose the questions wisely and try not to get stuck on a particular question or topic for too long. Instead of focussing on attempting the maximum number of questions, try focusing on the accuracy with which you attempt the paper.
Reasoning can be a tricky section for most of the students and it is important to the solve questions and at the same time keep a watch on the time that is passing by. Continuous practice will help you deal with this section too as the solution hits the mind quickly. To ace the grades in reasoning, all you need to do is to practice and only practice. After all, practice makes a man perfect.
English Language
The trick to scoring in the English section can vary from one person to another depending on his/her strengths and weaknesses. If you are good at vocab and reading then attempt the reading comprehension first and proceed with Cloze Test and other miscellaneous topics like Error Detection, Para Jumbles, Phrase Replacement, Double Fillers, etc. But if you are good at grammar, attempt Reading Comprehension in the end. 
General Awareness
So much is happening every day that unless you keep yourself abreast of these changes, you cannot adjust yourself to them or tackle the GA section of any exam smoothly and easily. A busy person hardly gets the time to read everything that it contains. Avoid the habit of ignoring everyday news by telling yourself that you will do it in the end when the examinations are close, you only end up lying crushed under a pile of news. You can go through the Monthly Capsules provided by us for both Current Affairs as well as Banking Awareness.
