MYTH : Cracking a Banking exam needs lot of math skills or person who is weak in math can’t crack banking exam. This is not true!! Truth is person who is weak in math may face difficulties in solving Quantitative section. Even a person with very weak math skill can crack the exam,provided that they are determined in their goal. I would suggest two week time is enough for them to learn basics.
Speed and accuracy: Banking exam is designed in such a way to test person’s speed and accuracy at the same time. Almost in all the exam you would have less than 45 seconds to solve a question. So speed forms a crucial part.Speed can be achieved by practice. Practice at least 500 quantitative questions before attempting real one.
