What should be my strategy (e.g. how many hours to study, which books for each section, etc.) to crack the IBPS PO exam in 3 months?
Hi Nayra,Have a detailed day wise plan for your preparation.Students who have entirely dedicated a few months for the upcoming RRB and IBPS exams and have started their preparation recently or are about to start, then this blog will guide them in making their schedules efficient..(8-10 hrs of studies combined with smart work needed to bring you to the top, hence making you the cream...SO HERE GOES:)QUANT:Daily 2 hrs of quant (going up to 3 hrs for weak students) will go a long way in improving your speed. During this time brush up chapter wise concepts along with a lot of practice questions .Note:1)Note down neatly in a separate hand out or book any short-cuts or important questions that you come across and need to memorize so that you can go through them regularly.2)You could also make voice recordings of tables from 1-30, squares, and cubes on your phone and keep listening to them to help you memorize, ENGLISH:I am sure the common problem that most of you face is confusion as to what would be the correct answer, or all seem correct while solving error corrections, fill in the blanks etc . Well let me tell you something English is very much like maths, the more you work on your basics and concepts( i.e. rules of grammar) the faster and more accurate you get at each step.So time to open your school grammar books like Wren and Martin with solution and also K Kundan English practice plus concepts book for banking and SSC or any book for that matter which explains English grammar and rules in details. Keep revising them regularly. Also practice daily with bankers Adda quizzes.HENCE DAILY 2 HRS ARE A MUST!!!.REASONING:Not a very difficult section and at the same time very scoring too. Yet we often make the mistake of not being regular with it by taking it for granted.So give it 1-2 hrs daily depending at what level you are currently at.If you know the concepts then 1 hr is good enough and if u are still at the learning stage then 2 hrs will be needed.NOT A SECTION TO BE IGNORED AS DURING THE EXAM BATTLE EACH MARK COUNTSGENERAL KNOWLEDGE AND CURRENT AFFAIRS:Start by reading the newspaper daily be it Hindu or any other fit for competitive exams, special focus on financial news relating to the banking sector. Go through the GK capsule given by BA and other lists on a regular basis.So 1 hour to newspaper and another hour to Bankers Adda capsules and other lists..THE MOST IMPORTANT ADDITION IS TO GIVE ONLINE EXAMS!!! YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO NOT DO THEM.....The more you practice these the better prepared you will be at the time of the real exam.Buy any online exam portal like career power exam series and give one exam every alternate day and on the other days analyse the exam that you had given on the previous day. Note down or bookmark(i.e. save) all the important questions that you come across.So 3 days in a week take exams and other 3 days do a detailed analysis of those exams.FOLLOW THIS SCHEDULE MONDAY TO FRIDAYOn weekends i.e. Saturday and Sunday do subjects like Computers and Banking Awareness plus revise all that was done on weekdays be it important questions or Gk, etc
How do I crack the IBPS PO exam?
I started my preparation just after I filled up the application.My preparation startegy are as followEnglish: Honestly didn't even have a book of this subject, no practice at all. But always the most scoring section for me. Because I read alot of articles, I mean a lot. That helped me to spot errors easily without even knowing what kind of rules were being applied.Descriptive: Hadn't even for once typed a letter or essay on a computer. Typing on the mains exam day was my 1st. But here too my article reading habit helped me. Scored 17/25.Quantitative: My base was strong and every concept was clear to me. But I know myself that even if I put my serious efforts in this section I could have scored 20 at best. So, I relied on this section just for the sectional cutoff.Reasoning: My hard work and practice were on this section. Seriously I practiced puzzles a lot. Every puzzles I could get my hands on. And that helped me in making this section a scoring one.Banking Awareness: haha.... couldn't give any suggestions on this.Summing up, I relied hugely on English and Reasoning. So, identify your strong area and polish it so well that it shine very brightly.Luckily in my 1st attempt I attended interview and hopefull to make it into the final list.Cleared prelims with just .75 marks above the cutoff.Cleared mains with 84.88 marks.P.S.I'm someone who took 6 years to graduate with just 45.9% (3rd Division).Edit:Luckily got BOI my 2nd choice.And freakishly shocked with my interview marks. Got 70.95/100 . My interview was not that good. Didn't even know abbreviation of SIDBI, examples of MSME and many more ….I think they mostly gave marks for my confidence and jolly nature shown in the interview.
What are the ways to crack the IBPS PO exam? Any good books for the same?
14 Step Guide to be Bank PO Success Story Part IIf you are a Bank PO aspirant, you will surely be interested in taking the SBI PO and IBPS PO exams. You could study blindly for the exams, and roll the dice. You may or may not be successful. To give yourself the advantage you need to be prepared with both the complete syllabus and a good strategy. The best way to build a successful strategy is to ask those who have used it effectively to get recruited as Probationary Officers in SBI and IBPS affiliated banks. We collected the experiences of some of the success stories from Testbook users. There are successful aspirants's own account, as to how they prepared, which I have compiled and presented.Credits: Jit Saha, Shivam Verma, Nilaksh Bansal, Bharadwaja Surya, Siddharth Jain, Neha Patial#1. BE MENTALLY PREPARED AT THE OUTSETIs it hard to get there? To become a Bank PO.There is fierce competition to get this job. This can be gauged from the fact that approx. 1 in 1100 students or may be even fewer than that get selected finally. So it was a really, really, tough nut to crack!That being said, it was definitely achievable.  With a good plan in mind, it’s possible to crack this exam in 2-3 months. Practice is the key.Being an IT employee, it was a little troublesome for me to appear in paper-and-pen mock tests. I had to be in office on weekends. But “getting digital is the way”.However, the hardest part for me was not the preparation or the exam time. It was the stress that I had to deal with and the wait for results. #2. LEARN TO MANAGE YOUR TIME WELLSBI PO 2021 was a test of time. How did you manage it?Mocks! Loads of them! After a good amount of practice, I got to know the areas which take me more time and those which take less. Then I could distribute my time accordingly in subsequent mocks. During my practice with mock tests I always set a target to attempt more questions even if I had to compromise with accuracy at first. Gradually, I started focusing on accuracy. This helped me answer more questions accurately.Once I became confident about my speed, I began to focus on accuracy in other ways. This exam is not just about knowing what to attempt but also about identifying what to skip. You must have the ability to glance through the question and be able to skip it if it seems too lengthy. If you develop this ability, then time won’t be a major obstacle.The order in which you answer the sections is important. I always started off with English because I was aware of the fact that this section is a score booster. I always wanted to answer it with a fresh mind to maximize my score. It allowed me to minimize silly mistakes. To figure out how much time to devote to each section, I solved previous years‡ question papers. While writing mock tests I stuck to this approximate time limit for each section, no matter how many questions I was able to attempt.Working under deadlines also helped me a lot. I started to enjoy pressure. In fact, I give my best when I am under pressure. But, SBI PO is hardly a cakewalk. I tried to make a balance by choosing an effective way online. I joined Testbook and started to solve regular quizzes on the Testbook app.Overall, it is very important to hold your nerves, not to panic and just enjoy your attempt. #3. FIND THE CORRECT PRELIMS STRATEGYWhat strategy did you apply in the days leading up to prelims?First of all, I glanced through previous years‡ questions. From this I got an idea about the major topics asked. Then I took all the free Mock Test provided by Testbook. Then I finished the major topics which were less time consuming but were more scoring. I completed all this inside a month and started giving the remaining mock tests.I gave as many mock tests as possible. I solved anywhere from one test per day to three per day. This number shot up to 5-7 mock tests in the last 5 days before prelims. This helped me to be in the rhythm of solving questions. All the while, I did not focus on a single subject but all three at the same time.Analysis of Mocks was the most important part. I went through all the solutions for all questions. I went through the analysis of my performance to understand where I needed to improve. I also avoided those tests that were being difficult for the sake of it. Good marks in mock tests helped build my confidence.#4. GET THE RIGHT RESOURCESWhat all resources did you use to prepare for the exam?Online Sources: Testbook (For mock tests (especially solutions), practice on app, CA capsules, other blog posts)Bankers Adda - IBPS PO, SBI, RRB (For capsules)Investopedia (For understanding banking topics)The Hindu e-paperWhatsapp groupsYoutube channels Offline Sources:RS Aggarwal for QuantFast Track Arithmetic by Rajesh Verma (for shortcuts)Kiran Practice PapersArihant Booklet for Computers and Marketing (just in case) #5. GET SUFFICIENT PRACTICEWhat do you think is the optimum number of mock tests one should take to prepare for the exam? Is it advisable to take more number of sectional tests or full lengths?There is no optimum number. There’s no point in solving mocks if you don’t keep track of your shortcomings and improve them. But I solved more than 20-25 tests for Mains and same for prelims. Your number will vary ‡ take mock tests till you are confident enough to face the exams. Confident means till you start to score 10-15 marks more than previous year’s cutoff.Both sectional and full length tests have their own merits. It would be better to attempt few sectional tests before full tests to get comfortable with each section. Then attempt full length tests. To improve your strategy in any one section, come back to sectional tests. Sectional tests are also easy to practice because one may not like to invest 1 hour at a time. You can invest 20 minutes and can finish the task in intervals. Sectional tests also improve time management because you are restricted to use only 20 minutes.#6. MAKE AN OVERALL PLANHow did you tackle the whole syllabus?It is practically impossible to attempt 200 questions. In fact, I found it difficult to read even 150 questions. So I first identified which topics have to be completely left out. Then I identified some topics like Syllogisms, Input-Output, Inequalities, Quadratic Equations etc. which are easy and can be done with good speed. This is how the syllabus has to be managed. Eventually, get to the tougher chapters.#7. BETTER YOUR STRATEGY FOR MAINS AFTER PRELIMSWhat strategy did you apply in the days leading up to Mains?I analysed my Prelims performance and figured out what was lacking. I worked on my problem areas to make sure I did not get stuck in the same places.Mains require even more practice. Calculation speed has to be blazing fast so worked upon it. I learnt some quick calculation techniques. Tried to read newspapers at a fast pace with understanding to attempt passage questions in minimum time.I gave even more Mock tests and read General Awareness capsules. I gave 2 tests per day for mains, and I analysed each test and went through the solutions after. I studied current affairs and banking awareness in the time in between.Apart from all these, I am grateful to some of my friends who were the part and parcel of my journey to SBI. I created a whatsapp group and kept adding guys with similar mindsets. We discussed whatever questions we got stuck on. This not only created a great bond amongst us but also enriched our knowledge. The name of our group is “Destination Success” where we are just a family trying to help each other maximize our capabilities.Read Part II of the 14 Step Guide to be a PO Success Story to get specific tips for each subject and Mains PreparationGood Luck!
In Canada, is immigration policy too liberal?
It is a myth that Canada has a very liberal immigration policy.I grew up in Canada. I went to high school in Canada. I got a four-year degree in Canada. I’m a highly skilled employee. I looked at the Canadian immigration points system and concluded that if I were in the same position, except that I wasn’t a Canadian citizen, then I wouldn’t be able to qualify to immigrate to Canada. I wouldn’t have enough points!A “liberal” immigration policy would be one that says anyone can come as long as they will follow all the laws, will have a job instead of being a burden on society, and will fill out all the required paperwork. EU countries have a “liberal” immigration policy with respect to other EU countries. Canada’s immigration policy is nothing close to that.Canada’s immigration policy is very technocratic. The government constantly adjusts the criteria and weights based on data in order to try to identify the prospective immigrants that will have the highest chance of being successful in Canada. It monitors the impact of immigration on the Canadian economy and adjusts policy to make sure the economy continues to grow as much as possible without increasing unemployment for Canadians.Canada’s family-based immigration policies are decidedly less liberal than those of the US.In the US, there is no quota on how many parents of US citizens can immigrate. In Canada, there is a quota so the waiting time can be multiple years, and some parents will be denied immigration because the government thinks they’ll use too much health care.In the US, there is approximately a 6 year waiting time for citizens to sponsor their unmarried children over 21 for immigration, and a 11 year waiting time for citizens to sponsor their married children over 21 for immigration. In Canada, it’s not possible to do so.In the US, there is approximately a 13 year waiting time for citizens to sponsor their siblings for immigration. In Canada, it’s not possible to do so.Australia, which has a similar immigration rate to Canada and a similar philosophy toward immigration, is even more technocratic. The Australian government maintains a list of skilled occupations for which there is demand for qualified workers in Australia and gives priority to people with at least one of those skills. If demand for a certain skilled occupation goes down, the government may remove that occupation from the list.
How can I get a government job in India?
Getting a government job in India is completely in your own hands. If you are fully determined and honest with your efforts then no one can stop you from getting your dream government job.First thing is to find your interest. The govt jobs in India are available in different industries and sectors. So, It is your responsibility first to decide for which Industry you want to enter. My suggestion is to stick with two or three kinds of jobs.Being more focuses increases chances of success: Say, for example, if you are preparing for banking jobs, pay full attention to this particular domain. Try to be more focused. You will get yourself lost in the middle if you try to concentrate on so many areas.There are some government sectors where recruitments are done in bulk. You should try for such kinds of govt jobs. Because it increases your chances.Competition is one major hurdle that comes in the way to get an Indian government job. So, better is to try for a particular state government job because the competition in a state level job is little less as compared to India level job.Moreover, nothing is impossible if you are determined, so stay focused, prepare well and see your dreams coming true.Best of Luck!
Why do the people in India prefer government jobs over private ones, although private jobs have more growth and salary?
"Why do the people in India prefer government jobs over private ones, although private jobs have more growth and salary?"From where I come (Uttar Pradesh), it's a given that maths students would go for engineering and medical ones for MBBS. I, however, didn't even fill the form for UPTU, JEE, AIEEE, instead i applied for a BA in a central university because I wanted to be in Indian Civil Services and humanities are preferred subjects for that. My friends, on the other hand, went for B.Tech and are now earning handsomely.Now, why did I do that?1. Recognition and prestige. No job can match Civil services in this department, not yet, at least.2. Exercising rule of law- only government jobs, and at that, mainly civil services, allow you to excersise power entrusted in your hand by acts made by Parliament. Private sector, on the other hand, has to abide by these laws. For example, when my department conducts raids and nabs corrupt people, who wouldn't love to be part of that?3. Deciding future of governance- a nation is only as good as its policies. Civil services allow you to be a participant and decision maker in policy formulation and execution which will decide the course of the nation.4. Job satisfaction- when you combine three points mentioned above, it results in great job satisfaction.These were my reasons. However the herd mentality that works generally involves other factors-1. Inertia. The common psyche of Indian people is still stuck in a bygone era when private sector meant jobs paying a meagre salary. I am seriously surprised to see how many people believe that private jobs are not much paying.2. Lack of knowledge- apart from engineering and medical, there is hardly any awareness about other emerging opportunities in journalism, tourism, banking etc.3. Misleading sense of job security. Misleading because it is no longer the case. If you are working at decent level in private sector, job insecurity won't really bother you. There would always be a lot of opportunities for you. On the contrary, lower level jobs in government are becoming more and more contractual having no job security. So in essence, there really isn't much difference. But people tend to believe it.4. Corruption. Although i personally believe that people don't come to government sector seeking money. There is too much competition for any government job and failure rate is often 1000x higher than success rate. In that case it makes no sense that one will waste one's youth in anticipation of future corruption money which they are more likely not to get. It's only AFTER they have joined the sector, they go for corruption. But before that, other factors mentioned above are mainly at play.Although, the scenario is changing fast. If we leave aside the prestigious civil services, people are increasingly going for private sector jobs which is a good sign and indicates a maturing economy.
How did Robert Frost get recruited for NASA?
NASA doesn't need to recruit.  They get most of their new hires via their co-op program (NASA Pathways).  Students apply for co-op placement via the co-op office at their university.  Co-ops receive semester long positions at a NASA center, either in the summer or during the fall or spring semesters.  They usually do two or three of these rotations, and then, if they performed well, they receive a full time placement after graduation.I didn't even know there was such a program, while I was in university, so that's not how I got to NASA.During my final semester, one of my design team members disappeared for a few days.  When he returned, he told me he'd been at NASA applying for a contractor position as an astronaut instructor for the ISS program.  I wasn't aware such a thing existed, but it sounded like the ideal job for me.  So, I visited the website of the new contractor that had been formed to properations for the STS and ISS programs, a company called United Space Alliance (USA).  I submitted an application.  They called me at my office in the Humanities Tutoring Center, the next morning and asked me to fly out for an interview and said they'd arrange a flight, hotel, and rental car.A week later, I was sitting in a huge room with 600 other applicants.  There was a line of small booths set up and in each was a manager for a group.  From the list of 600 names, they'd call out the ones they were interested in talking to.  You'd go to that booth and be interviewed and then return to your seat and wait to see if another group called out your name or if an HR person would call your name to make an offer.  I interviewed for the robotics group and for the avionics group and then accepted the offer from the avionics group.Eight years later, I was able to take advantage of the other way NASA hires. Operations for Shuttle was almost exclusively done by USA and they provided most of the people for ISS, too.  Each group might have 10 USA employees, 2 NASA employees, and a NASA group lead.  Those two NASA positions were usually filled via the co-op program, but once in a while, NASA would get permission from the government to open a position for an experienced person.  Experienced contractors would apply, and if one was selected that person would undergo a badge conversion.  I was fortunate enough to be one of those people.  I swapped my USA badge for a NASA badge, but little else changed.  I kept the same desk, the same phone number, and the same tasks, I just filled out a different timecard system and no longer had a contractor boss.
Why has the current White House left so many posts unfilled? As of August 2021. nearly 50% of posts have still not been filled.
No one wants the jobs.Its underreported but they can’t fill the jobs because the qualified people are turning them down.Reportedly the White House is a toxic environment. The staff turnover is epic. Everyone seems lawyered up, which is a huge personal expense. Several White House staffers have either failed to qualify for or had their security clearances revoked. About half might end up having to testify under oath at some point.The Cabinet-level jobs aren’t much better. Five Secretaries have been fired. Two for malfeasance and one because he opposed privatization of the VA which has had severe issues in his absence. DOJ is a war zone. The State Department is basically a disaster with nearly a quarter of the career diplomats retiring in protest. Then there are two more exits looming at Interior and Defense.So the only “major” secretary to survive the first two years is Mnuchin at Treasury. The others are DeVos, Perry and Chao. Two of whom have no idea what their Departments do and the other is super competent but also Mitch McConnell’s wife so she’s basically insurance for the de facto head of the Republican Party in government.Working in this administration could have permanent negative impacts on your long-term career. The people that are doing it are a mix of opportunists looking for fast advancement and old guard types who think they are saving the country.Leaks from within the White House paint the President as a rolling disaster. The proverbial bull in the china shop. No less than eleven senior staffers have called the President some version of “nuts” or “moron.”Pray we never see an administration worse than this in our lifetime. The only thing that keep the wheels from falling off this one is basic malaise and incompetence, that and healthy doses of self-preservation.
