First thing is that if you belong to general category, I strongly advise you not to give bank PO exams. Since the job you get there will not be proportional to the efforts you will put in your preparation and the knowledge you may possess. The bank job, in its current scenario, is a very very bad one. I work for a PSB and after having more than my fair share of horror I gave SSC and CAT this year. I have 8 calls from various colleges and have managed to clear SSC. But in order to achieve this, I had to take LWP for 2 months for exam preparation.

If you have interest in govt services, take the NABARD or RBI exams but stay away from bank PO.

As for suggestions, it simply comes down to practice. You need to put in time and efforts for these exams to qualify. Nothing is easy when you are a general candidate.

GL and start preparing.

@Pradeep0013 You were there yesterday if I am not mistaking. You and another fellow after you got asked the same questions. Wo mota mood me nahi tha PI lene ke aisa laga.

CAT OA: 94.78

S1: 92.xx

S2: 92.xx

X: 78.6, XII: 75.78, grad: BE (71.75)

Work ex: 46 months; 31 in IT and 15 in core banking.

GD Topic: "Free speach is endangared in corporations"

Time: 2 min to think (they said 3), 10 min duration (they said 15) and 3 mins to write (they said 5)

Exp: Went smooth and in an amicable way. No fish market and everyone got a fair chance.

Int:

Same panelists that were there in the GD.

2 men, not the sort that would make you feel comfortable

P1 (Mota) and P2

P2: Tell us something about yourself.

Me: Started with the basic intro and as soon as I came to my job, I was interrupted by P2.

P2: Life is good and easy in banks & a good pay, no pressure then why MBA?

Me: Corrected the "good pay and no pressure part. (Here I cant tell whether it was the lack of awareness on part of the panelists about the working conditions in PSB or was it a troll question)

P1: You are the BM at your branch?

Me: No sir, an Asst Mgr

P1: Ok! Can you tell me the diff btw M commerce and E commerce?

Me: told M commerce is related to Mobile and tablet apps for e commerce sites. And E commerce is for others.

P1: Is the POS counted in E or M commerce?

Me: No idea on that.

P1: What is SENSEX?

Me: told

P1: NIFTY?

ME: Dont have info on that. I dont deal with stock markets.

P1: Diff btw NSE & BSE?

Me: Sir I dont deal with stock markets and didn't read about them.

P1: How many Stock Markets are there in India?

Me: (didn't u hear me for the laste 2 questions?) Sorry sir.

P1 How many stock markets are there in Bhopal?

Me: Don't know sir (Might as well ask me about the string theory)

P2: Can you recall any engg. subjects?

Me: Can tell you the names but I wont be able to recall the concepts since it has been more than 4.5 years.

P2: (smiles) OK! So that would be all. Any questions for your side?

Me: (Ha kamino, core banking me stock market kaha se aa gaya jo meri le li? Work, current affairs, hobby kuch to pooch....) No sir

P1: Ok best of luck.

Verdict: Outright rejection, totally unrelated topics asked and screwed up. Worst interview I've ever faced. Both in terms of relevance and content. Waste of time and money for me

If by 'hard work' you mean you already know about what is written here:

http://www.pagalguy.com/bank-po/my-life-as-a-bank-officer-25064619/19787066

and still are ready to join then it is your decision. Transfer policy for females is very liberal. And finally the recent order in all banks was to post the wife in the same city (if possible) where the husband is working.

So you might have to spend some time away from home initially but after marriage you can stay with your husband where ever he is posted.
