SBI PO Test - Importance of Awareness on Banking , Economy and Financial Matters

SBI PO Test - Importance of Awareness on Banking , Economy and Financial Matters

The last PO test by SBI was on 28 April 2013. In this Test, Part III titled "General Awareness, Marketing & Computers" had questions as under, topic-wise.

  1. Current Affairs (Sports,-3, Author -1 & Days celebrated 1) - 5 questions

  2. Banking, Finance & Economy Related - (News, Terms, RBI instructions, NI Act, Deposit Scheme, Capital Markets, Budget, etc.) - 20 questions

  3. Computers - 13 questions and

  4. Marketing - 12 questions

Total - 50 questions

It can be seen that, though not specifically stated in the name of the Test, Banking, Economy & Finance carry 20 qns. - 40% of the Section and 10% of the total. This 20 qns cannot therefore be left unprepared for, since Section -wise cut-offs will be stipulated after the Test. In fact, carrying the most marks in the Section, Banking ... must be given a much greater importance than Current Affairs, which carries only 5 marks. Considering the efforts required vis-a-vis the Marks, I think Banking & Finance (20 marks) must rank as more important than Current Affairs (5 marks).
