General Awareness Study Plan for SBI PO
SBI PO is one of the crucial exams to get admission in Banks. Plan to prepare General Awareness for SSC PO is different from SBI PO; SO we should carefully handle this study. Some of the Aspirants think that they are preparing for SSC CGL; so it is easy for them to clear SBI PO exam and it their cup of tea. But, they should avoid this type of dream.
Main difference between SBI PO and SSC General Awareness;
- History Science, Polity, Geography
In SSC exams, you will find out more than 10 questions from this topic; But, SBI PO would not ask even a single question. They don’t care what happened in past.
In SSC, Most of the questions would be from theory and past while Questions of SBI PO would be from Current Affairs and little bit higher difficulty.
Only 2 or 3 questions in SSC while there would be more than 10 questions in SBI PO exam.
No questions of Marketing in SSC CGL while more than 10 questions in SBI PO.
As we previously analyzed in SSC General Awareness Study Plan that main portion was static. But, General Awareness plan for SBI PO exam is totally reverse. No Static history portion. Main focus is on the Economy later on Computer and Marketing.
