As there are many fields in the CWE (clerks)so you need a good knowledge in each and every field which will come in exam. There could also be some students good in reasoning and general English Language, but not good in aptitude then there is no job in bank for these types of students. There is no need to get perfect in each and every section, but you have to just set target for each section so that you can easily qualify in all sections. This is quite enough to get good marks in CWE. Let us discussed some of the section to get very good marks.
One of the important sections of Bank Exams is General Awareness. Very high marks can be scored by any of the candidate in this field which will increase their overall marks. Almost about 95% of general awareness paper consists of current affairs as you are quite aware of the fact that current affairs are an integral part of bank exams so you need to keep a close eye on the current affairs so that you can easily solve General Awareness paper without facing any problem. Within 10 to 12 minutes you can easily solve about 80-90 % of these type of questions as these not require much time if you are well prepared for this so you don’t need to worry about the only thing you have to do is to get well prepared. As some of the study materials available in the market is not so good for your preparation so to prepare much well you can go to some sites where you can easily get the required study material which will help you in your good preparation for upcoming banking exams. Apart from reading various series of books you should also read good magazines as already mentioned by us earlier and you should also read good newspaper daily such as The Hindu, The Telegraph, and The Times of India etc. by reading articles and newspaper you can easily keep a close track on the current affairs which will help you in many ways. By this you can also get some help for your English Language section, both descriptive and objective and at the same time you will also get help for preparing for your upcoming interviews. So always be ready to read good newspaper and magazines. Economy, polity, books and authors, international events, finance, banking, minster and their department, latest scams, records, sports, awards and prizes etc. are the fields about which questions can be asked in General Awareness. Thus, we recommend you to finish the General Awareness section in 10 minutes time and it can be easily solved in this time if you are well prepared.
Reasoning is the section which has highest weightage so it is the most important section of the bank exams. Some of the students find it difficult to finish this section on time so they face problems in this section. As during the course of exam, students find it quite difficult to understand whether the answer choose by them is right or wrong thus you can say that problem of accuracy is also there. By the questions which are based on statements, assumption based questions, questions based on interface and judgmental type of questions people face much problem of accuracy. These questions are quite confusing and also consist of major mass of the questions. There are some more questions type apart from the type of questions mentioned earlier which can be frequently asked in bank exams are of two types Verbal and Non-Verbal. Verbal type of question consists of Number Series, Coding- Decoding, Test of Direction Sense, Number Ranking, Alphabet Series, Blood Relations, Problem on Age Calculations, Arithmetic Reasoning, Decision making, Analogy etc. The Non-Verbal type of questions consists of Non Verbal Series, Grouping Identical Figures and Relationship with other figure.
The reason behind designing the test of reasoning ability is that how well a person can think in a pressure, thus to look at this skill of the students the test of reasoning has been designed. Some of the students fail to get a obtain a good marks in this field which prevent them from scoring good marks even though they have scored high marks in all other fields, but according to me it is the field where you can obtain a high standard marks. There are many reasons why a student is not able to finish this section on time are lack of patience to handle the difficult paper, nervousness, lack of skill of leaving difficult questions, lack of time management etc. there could even more reason depending upon an individual. If you are able to keep your patient during the course of exam and if the basic thing is understood by you that the paper is same for everybody then you would be easily able to handle the difficult paper quite easily. You can buy books for this sections there are several books available in the market and you need to understand the basic concepts for all types of questions which we have mentioned earlier once you are quite cleared with the concepts then you can find that your speed is increasing. Your accuracy will also increase if you get a good hold over the concepts so we suggest you to read some good books and try to improve your concepts.
Quantitative is one of the sections where you can get very high marks as the questions are basically based on your mathematical calculation and they are also quite simple in nature. Questions can come on square roots, LCM, HCF, bar diagrams, tables, ratio and proportion, Compound Interest, profit, loss and discount, pie charts etc. so to score good marks in this field you must have basic knowledge about math.
