Tips to Prepare for Bank Exam :

1. Make a time table of syllabus divide it based on high and low priorities..
2. Initially concentrate on the basics of each categories and get good knowledge about the fundamentals.
3. Try to concentrate on all the categories atleast  a  single topic in a day. So that while writing exam you can easily adopt yourself on different types of questions easily.
4. Write the list of  topics and the marks allotted on the notepad. And if you are thorough in the  concepts you can just make a tick on that. This will give a interest to study it, topic by topic of your convenience.
5. If you are weak in any specific category try to work more on it in daily basis, so that you will get used to it.
6. Once you get an idea about all the topics in each category, then concentrate more on time mangement. Many candidates lose their marks only becuse of time management. Even if you have stuff without time management, you cant achieve your goal.
7. Students preparing for the exam in papers and books, this is the only reason they cant adopt themselves to the online test. So try to attend more online test and practice well.
