General Awareness with special reference to Banking for IBPS PO Mains exam 2017


General Awareness and Computer Awareness are scoring sections in the mains exam of IBPS PO. Don't neglect these and don't leave them to be prepared once the result of prelims is declared. Start prepared these two sections along with the other three sections while you are preparing for prelims. You may adjust the time of preparation according to your needs and goals. 

If these sections are left for later time, you are going to find it very difficult to learn a huge subject and another big task is to remember it. So start digesting small, so that you will find it easy and worry free when you have less time for the mains exam. Have a nice preparation.
