J&K Bank PO Main Exam Strategy

For the main exam, you will still have enough time to prepare, so we are not giving you a day wise schedule, however, it should be noted that, after completing 2-3 chapters, it is necessary that you take a mock test on those topics to see how far you’ve understood the chapters.

All the sections from Prelims are a part of the J&K Main exam as well, so along with reading books for J&K bank Prelims exam preparation, you need to learn two more sections for the J&K Main exam. So here are some preparation strategies for those sections:

Computer Aptitude

  • Make sure that you cover the entire syllabus
  • If you don’t understand any chapter, seek help from an expert but don’t simply memorize
  • Expect to apply practical knowledge into your theoretical paper
  • Solve sectional mock tests to get an idea about the type of questions to expect

Banking Awareness

  • Learn all the banking terms
  • Make sure, you cover the full syllabus
  • Write down all the tough or confusing terms in a copy and revise them daily for an hour
  • Do not write an answer based on assumptions
