Every year a lot of students and working professionals aim for government jobs. There are various competitive exams for Civil Services, Bank SO, SSC, Bank PO, etc. Of these SSC and Bank PO are the most popular. Students and professionals both aim for these exams. The number of people appearing for the exams is soaring every year, but very few can clear the exam as the bar is too high. So, people are skeptical of their performance till the results are announced.

Let’s try to find out why exactly is the fear among people for these exams?

• Syllabus – The syllabus of SSC Bank PO is vast. Hence, one needs to start preparing for it well in time.

• Cut Off – Bank PO requires one to clear individual sectional cut offs. The general cut off for overall exam is considered to clear the first selection process for SSC. Hence, it becomes difficult.

• General Awareness – In Bank PO, GA is mostly based on current affairs, and SSC has mostly static GK. Again, lot to prepare.

• Quantitative Aptitude – Quantitative section in Bank PO is much easier than SSC CGL. In Bank PO, the questions take place mostly from percentage, interest rates and data interpretation topics and in SSC, the questions come from Algebra, Trigonometry and Geometry sections. So, not everybody is comfortable with Math syllabus.

Clearly, SSC and Bank PO seem difficult to crack as compared to other exams.

A common principle between both exams is that is starting timely. Starting the preparation, a year in advance will be highly beneficial. Next is putting systematic efforts daily. One should follow a plan of distributing subjects and topics and studying in parallel. Evaluating performance through mock exams is very important. Continuous efforts and hard work is the key to scoring high in these exams. To aspire is to grow! For pacing up your prep on SSC and Bank PO exams, practice questions in your leisure at EduThrill.
