Banking Awareness – The Banking Awareness section is one of most important section for any Bank Exam. In the Banking Awareness section you have to study all the important abbreviations which is used in the world of finance. On the other hand various limits, amounts and criteria of the banking and financial products are VERY IMPORTANT.

You can check our Banking Awareness Quizzes which have almost 200 update questions.

Current Affairs – What to study and how much to study? This is what you have asking right? Well the answer is simple. Based on the past exams, Current Affairs of Last 2 months (excluding the examination month) is important along with the current affairs of the examination month till 10 days before of the exam date.

Eg. SBI PO is on 31st July 20, 2016, so you have to study May and June, 2016 – Entire along with Current Affairs from 1st to 21st of July, 2016.

But what about the “Old” or the “ancient current affairs”? Let us explain it to you in a simple way.

Mission Indradhanush was in our Current Affairs Update way back in October, 2015. However, the question appeared in the UIIC AO Exam in June, 2016.

This made everyone believe that the UIIC AO had OLD current affairs.

ITS NOT. UIIC AO DID NOT HAVE “OLD” Current Affairs. Firstly, Old Affairs are not “Current” Affairs.

Mission Indradhanush trended in the month of May because it was announced to launched again in July, 2016.

So actually it was from the recent news.

So what you have to do?

Major Government Schemes or anything which has been a major news, google them using the portal and you will be able to see if they have trended in the recent months.

There can be questions from Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana if it has set a record or revised any rate in the recent times. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT AN OLD NEWS. Logically speaking, a news or a topic does not get evaporated over the time. They remain in their place, only an update let them reappear in the news.

So stop worrying about studying Current Affairs since independence and start using the google news to find the topics which trended.


STOCK GK – The Stock GK has basic General Knowledge questions like,
  • Stadiums,
  • Lakes,
  • Palaces,
  • Riverside cities,
  • Mountains,
  • Dams,
  • Airports,
  • Various Tombs/Temples
