A) Quantitative Aptitude

The quantitative aptitude for bank exams tests the numerical abilities of the candidate. Bank quantitative aptitude questions are usually from topics in basic mathematics like averages, ratio and proportion, percentage, simple/compound interest etc. Bank numerical ability,as bank quantitative aptitude is also referred to sometimes, usually contains 40 questions in most of the bank numerical ability exams. The following points should be kept in mind while preparing for and attempting this section.

  • Don’t be afraid of mathematics- the section demands very basic mathematics which can be learnt through continuous practice and some tricks.

  • Practice is the key.

  • While preparing for this section- keep notes of the important formulae-this will help you in revising them later.

  • Read and thoroughly review the math topics that are tested.  Work on areas where you need improvement.

At the Test

  • Do all easy questions first, leaving the more time-consuming and difficult ones for later.

  • Before solving a problem, read all the answer choices.  They will all be in the format that your own solution should take

  • Eliminate those choices that simply don’t make sense.

  • Look for shortcuts.
