1) BANKING AWARENESS

- Indian currency& note issuing policy ( very important )
- Development institions
- Defining bank /kyc etc/ cooperative / rrb’s
- Bank accounts
- Various banking sector reforms & committee ,s
- Important abbreviation & glossary etc.
Ques. How to read??? From where ???
First of all what is the meaning of awareness = जागरूकता , Knowledge
So , no need for deep study just mug up the basic knowledge .
Now how to read and correlate with current affairs for example:
Indian currency & note issuing policy with corruption
- Currency system
- Minimum reserve system
- New note circulation
- Printing press with speciality
- Parallel economy
- Demonetization ( year by year)
- black money
- hawala etc
so this strategy is very useful for written as well as interview preparation & descriptive part .
- Rbi official website
- various online platforms
- bsc money and banking
- ibca banking awareness
- or whatever you like
2) CURRNT AFFAIRS
Now this the most confusing part because many aspirants don’t know from where to read , how to read and from which month ……..
Now from which month :-
for banking aspirants —– 2.5 months deep study + 1 months only important news
Example: exam date 15 dec
Strategy : 25 sep to 25 nov ( deep study ) + 25 nov to 5 dec ( very important directly 3 to 4 ques from these days ) and for last 1 months means 25 aug to 25 sep just mug up the important points ( ex. Like important committee reports, imp sports events etc )
and from 5 dec to 14 dec just revise….. Almost in every examination whether it is upsc , ssc ,banks atleast 10 to 15 days before exam , examination paper is submitted to conducting agency by paper managing committee. This is because within these gap of 10 to 15 days examination paper scrutinize various times like difficulty level , question language etc.so no need to put extra efforts on current affairs in last 10 days just revise 🙂
