Strategy when answering Banking Awareness Questions

As we have already mentioned above that the answers to financial awareness questions don’t change and once you have memorized the answers to these questions, you can simply answer them. It all depends on how vastly you are able to cover the syllabus and how well do you retain the answers. Once you are inside the examination hall, you can answer these banking awareness questions quickly as either you would be knowing the answer or you wouldn’t be knowing the answer. Unlike reasoning and quantitative aptitude, you don’t have to do lengthy calculations. So, try to capitalize your time in this part of the GA section.
