100 Days General Awareness Study Plan

General Awareness Study Plan IBPS PO

Hello Aspirants,

The notification of IBPS PO VIII- 2018 has been released for the RECRUITMENT OF PROBATIONARY OFFICERS/ MANAGEMENT TRAINEES in the Participating Organisations.

Check the official notification here.

There is no need to remind how important IBPS PO exam is, and many aspirants have started preparing for it long before the notification is released. It has been observed that IBPS is raising the bar for both PO and Clerical level exam year after year, so you should have full command on all the sections to ace the exam.

Though the section of General/Economy/Banking Awareness would come in IBPS Main Examination, it doesn’t mean that we start preparing for it after Prelims. In fact, you should start from today by spending little time each day instead of cramming everything just before the exam.

Keeping in mind the difficulty level of exam, we bring to you the carefully planned 100 Days General Awareness Study Plan for IBPS PO 2018 following which, clearing the General Awareness section would become a cake-walk.

The General Awareness section can be divided into various sub-sections like, Static GK, Economy, and Banking Awareness.    We’ll  start with  Static GK , as it is very  vast and anything can be asked from anywhere, and would then add economy and banking awareness, along with the daily dose of Current Affairs.
