How to complete preparation for private bank job

Recruitment circulars of several private banks have been published recently. Effective preparation should be taken to get the job. Like other job tests, the preliminary, written, oral and computer skills tests are required for recruitment in private banks. 

Private bank job exam usually has preliminary and written exam on the same day. The computer practical test is conducted on a separate day or on the day of the oral test. However, there are differences in some test types due to differences in the policies of some banks. However, in almost all bank job exams, written exam is provided through shortlist, online test or preliminary viva.

Generally 80-100 marks exam is conducted. Among them there is MCQ of 50-80 marks and written test of 20-40 marks. If you are proficient in English, mathematics and computer, you will be ahead in the job market in private banks.

Question type, distribution and timing

Generally the questions of preliminary and written examination are given in the same question paper. OMR sheet for MCQ type of prelims and specific format book for written part is provided. Written part should be started after completing MCQ. Time is one and a half to two hours. Timings and types of questions vary greatly from bank to bank. However, the time for MCQs is 30 minutes to 1 hour and for written part is 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Sometimes you can start writing after completing MCQ. Again, only the written part has to be started after the prescribed time for Preli depending on the field.

Preparation for Preliminaries

For Prelims more questions are asked from English, Maths and Mental Skills, Computer, ICT and General Knowledge sections. As the questioners of each bank are from different institutions, there is variation in the quality, manning and topics of the questions. For example, there are 10-15 questions of Bengali grammar and literature in an exam, and some institutes completely exclude Bengali. So one should have basic knowledge about each topic of each section. Good proficiency in English and Mathematics and basic knowledge of other subjects is required. Any book from a good publisher should be well received. Bengali, English, Maths, ICT or General Knowledge are some common subjects, from which questions often arise. These things should be kept well in mind and mistakes cannot be made in the exam hall. Remember, if you get the Common Questions wrong, you won’t survive the competition. Preliminary preparation is informative. So give regular revision. In the week before the exam, you must revise the preli note book or the marked part of the book carefully.

Preparation for written exam

The written part is known as focus writing. Focusing on one topic, known or unknown, should be written. Mathematics, Focus Writing (English & Bangla), Translation (English & Bangla) are the main subjects of written part. In short, the answer can be common sense. However, there are two maths, one Bengali focus writing, one English focus writing, one argument in English and one Bengali to English or English to Bengali translation in the written test. If you are good at regular math practice, free-hand writing and translation, you can do well in this section. Try to write the answers consistently.

Answers to descriptive questions should be relevant and appropriate. Writing more gets more marks or marks are given by weighting the notebook—those days are over. Try to write relevant quotes, facts and phrases. Be careful with Bengali and English spelling. Remember, no matter how well you write, if you find spelling mistakes, the examiners are annoyed by the notebook. As a result the number decreases. Don’t memorize everything in the world. Free hand writing is important here. Develop the habit of writing on various topics in your own way in Bengali and English parts using your imagination. Some templates can be memorized.

For example, if a question about economy, culture, literature, Bangabandhu or liberation war starts with a quote or poem, the answer will be appropriate, you can fix it in advance. If the matter mentioned in the question is in which section of Bangladesh Constitution, do not forget to mention it. Apply any data from Economic Survey or BBS if known. Use black ink pen for writing. However, you can use blue color for quotes or special information. If the map or diagram is not appropriate, you can skip it. But it is better not to give wrong map or diagram.

A pie chart or any other chart can be used for continuous homogeneous data. Just google it and you will get many charts. Plan in advance which chart you will use for which type of information, this will reduce the stress in the exam hall.

Viva preparation

The viva examines the intelligence, vocabulary, speaking ability in English, computer knowledge, basic knowledge of undergraduate and postgraduate subjects, etc. If you have job experience, you will know the subject well. Do not give a direct negative answer to the question why you want to leave. If there is any complaint or good reason, justify it. Don’t go for any memorized answers. Listen to the question carefully and use your conscience and intelligence to avoid regionalism and give relevant answers. Address the question as ‘Sir’ whether male or female. If you don’t know the answer, say ‘sorry’ directly. Don’t pretend to know. But if you want to know the statistics, if you don’t remember, you can say that you don’t remember at the moment. Don’t get into arguments, don’t get heated on the viva board. But if there is a relevant argument, you can say it politely with permission.
