  • There are some themes that are common to both. Like for quantization, all the basics are the same. But in CGL you have advanced math like geometry, trigonometry, algebra, measurement, etc. They are almost half of the math section. At SBI PO we have time consuming and calculating data interpretations. Simply put, the math at SBI is pretty calculating. While at SSC, it is based on number theory theorems, geometry formulas, trigonometry, and theorems.

  • In reasoning, encoding decoding, blood ratio, alphanumeric strings are the same. The seating arrangement in SSC is very basic. Where, as in the SBI secretary, the seating arrangement is of a higher level.
  • For English, the curriculum is the same. But the pattern of questions is different. The level of English at SBI PO is higher than at CGL. The comprehension passages in SBI PO are advanced compared to CGL.
  • In SSC, GK is static in nature. Questions are asked of history, politics, geography, economics, physics, chemistry, biology and there are also some current affairs. At SBI, the GA section is primarily based on current affairs and banking awareness.

You can compare the level of both exams by taking mock tests on both. Try the Gradeup app. They have free mock tests. You can try them and compare yourself.

There is a lot of difference in this two-exam program.

1. English
Almost similar English, but banks focus on non-grammatical areas, ie, reading comprehension, sentence arrangement, cloze test, etc.
CGL concentrates on the grammatical part, that is, voice, degrees, sentence correction, etc.
even these two tests have a similar pattern but amount of grammar and non-grammar section differs.

2. Reasoning
CGL reasoning somewhat easier. With a little knowledge you can solve reasoning.
Banks always opt for high-class reasoning for this you have to practice a lot.

3. Quantitative skills.

Banks always opt for high-class reasoning for this you have to practice a lot.

3. Quantitative skills.
They look similar on both tests but they are totally different. Banks interested mainly in interpretation of data and numbers.
CGL interested in pure mathematics, i.e. geometry, algebra, trignometry, coordinate geometry, and measurement.

4. General awareness

Banks always prefer current affairs, computer skills. sbi also prefers marketing.
CGL prefers conventional GK, i.e. history, geography, politics, general science, etc.

My suggestion is that if you are preparing CGL, prepare only for CGL. If it comes to banks, be prepared only for banks!
Don't be in two minds.

Well, surely there are some themes that are common to both. But the strategy for both exams is completely different.

  • In SSC, the topics of trigonometry, algebra, measurement, geometry cover almost 50% of the syllabus at level 2. While these topics are absent in SBI PO.
  • At SBI PO, the main focus is on data interpretations. They are top tier in the SBI network. But in SSC they are pretty basic.
  • The study program in English is the same. But in SSC level 2, a large number of questions come from the topics active passive, narration, direct indirect, verb tenses, etc. No such questions are asked in PO. The level of compreh

  • The reasoning for both exams is different. In SBI, most of it is based on riddles that are not asked in SSC.
  • In CSS, the general awareness section is somewhat abstract. There is no fixed pattern here. Questions are asked back and forth. Various topics from ancient history to the present, from physics to biology. Whereas in the SBI, the general awareness section mainly comprises current affairs of the banking sector and bank awareness.

Here I have tried to compare SSC and SBI. See which one suits you best.

In the end, I would say that if you are preparing for SBI and SSC simultaneously, you will like sailing on two ships.

There are many websites that provide training for SSC, SBI, and IBPS. Gradeup is the best among them. You can choose which exam you want to do the preparation for.

I hope I have been able to clear your doubt.

There isn't much difference other than the General Awareness and arithmetic part.
1) In SBI PO, questions come about Updates plus Banking and Business Updates. But in the case of SSC CGL, it is a big pond because here you will find not only topical questions but also general studies.
2) The second difference is that of the arithmetic part. On several occasions, the SBI PO exam consisted solely of Data Interpretation questions. Not a single quantitative apt question. While at SSC CGL, be prepared for both Quant and DI. It can come in any question form.

Now SBI has included the main exam in its recruitment procedure. So ... Take a brief look at the latest pattern in the notification.
I hope this will help :)

Topical questions, as well as general studies questions, are asked on the SSC CGL exam. However, there are more questions related to banking and business awareness on the SBI PO exam than there are general knowledge.

You must prepare for all the quantitative aptitude and reasoning topics on the SSC CGL exam, but most questions on the SBI PO exam are based on data interpretation.

SBI PO requires you to read about Social Economic Awareness, however SSC CGL does not. SBI PO has a higher English language level than SSC CGL. SBI PO also requests Descriptive English and a Cloze test. T

It will take a lot of dedication on your part if you want to ensure that you are well equipped to simultaneously prepare for the BANK PO and SSC CGL exams and pass them on the first shot.

However, it is more about knowing if you are capable of preparing for both exams. For that, you must know a few things.

1. Bank PO and SSC CGL exam pattern and syllabus and weighting of each topic.

This step is very important before starting any exam preparation. It gives you a basic idea about the exam and puts you on the right track for your preparation.

2. Your current preparedness level.

Once you know the pattern and syllabus, you need to know where you stand in terms of readiness. This is a very important step because it will help you to reality check. Show up for 1-2 mock tests for both exams and see if you are comfortable with the type of questions.

Simulated testing of bank purchase orders

Simulated tests SSC CGL

This exercise will help you assess the following:
(a) The difference between your current level of preparation and the level required to pass the exam.
(b) If you need to work on certain topics from scratch.
(c) If you are taking too long to answer questions.

3. Make a list of topics in the following categories:

For the bank purchase order:

(A) Issues that you are comfortable with and can resolve quickly

You do not need to work on these issues separately. Whatever you need to be lagging in can be covered by showing up for mock testing only.

(B) Issues that you are comfortable with but take time to resolve

These topics can be improved very quickly, and your score will improve in no time after a little practice.

(C) Issues you previously solved but forgot the method

You should spend enough time on these topics. Review a topic and then look for questions to see its improvement. Repeat this for all those topics.

(D) Topics you are not comfortable with at all

Keep these topics for last as they will take a long time.

For SSC CGL:

Now, do the same exercise as above for SSC CGL. This process may seem time consuming, but in its overall preparation, it will save you time. You can save additional time by using the detailed analysis feature after each mock test in Testbook. This will tell you what level your readiness is at.

4. Cut-off points from previous years for the Bank PO and SSC CGL exams.

In these exams, the cut is more important than the actual score. This is because cuts are the first hurdle you have to cross to reach your goal. You need to hit the minimum score before you can start dreaming of maximizing your score. So, once you've presented yourself for some mock tests, review the cutoffs for these tests and find out the difference you need to cover.

5. Differences and similarities between the program and the difficulty levels of both exams.

This is the most crucial step. This analysis will help you make an informed decision. This is because this is the part of the plan where you plot to get the most performance in the least amount of time.

Source: Google.

(A) Quantitative aptitude (mathematics)

Source: Google.

In SBI PO, the questions are mainly asked about data interpretation, averages, speed and distance in time, measurement, interest, percentage, algebra, time and work, approximation, etc. However, the focus of the Quant section of SBI PO Mains will be on data analysis and interpretation.

On the other hand, SSC CGL is likely to cover a wider variety of topics in addition to those asked on the SBI PO exam. Some of these are geometry and trigonometry.

His approach:

Your approach should be simple. First, prepare all the topics covered in the SBI PO Quant syllabus. Keep showing up for SBI PO drills and see if you can get more grades than previous years cuts. Before the SBI PO Mains exam, opt for higher-level questions on data interpretation, data analysis, and data sufficiency.

The good thing is that apart from the additional chapters in CGL, the SBI PO Preliminary Exam level will be higher than the SSC CGL Level I Exam. So if you clear the SBI PO Preliminary limits, you will also you will be prepared for those chapters in SSC CGL. Shift your focus to those additional chapters on the SSC CGL exam, only after you're done with your SBI PO prep. Be sure to run mock SSC CGL tests through this process.

(B) English language

Source: Google.

In the SBI PO exam, the questions are mainly asked for Reading Comprehension, Para Jumbles, Cloze Test, Fill in the Blanks, Error Detection, Phrase Replacement and Sentence Correction, Word Association Pair, etc. These questions are intended to test your understanding and usage skills.

On the other hand, in the SSC CGL exam, there is more emphasis on grammar and vocabulary. On the Level I exam, you will need to address the meaning of phrases or idioms, spelling, and word substitution, in addition to the SBI PO topics. On the Level II exam, you will find several questions about direct and indirect speech, as well as active and passive voice.

His approach:

Since the English level at SSC is very basic and SBI PO also asks 5-10 grammar questions, start with the SSC grammar level. Once you start getting average grades, move on to other SBI PO questions. Learn vocabulary daily. Also, regularly practice Reading Comprehensions, Para Jumbles, and Cloze Tests.

Once you are done with the SBI PO Prelims exam, you can begin studying for the higher grammar questions asked on the SSC CGL Level II exam.

(C) Ability to reason (logical reasoning)

Source: Google.

The type of questions and the level of difficulty are very different in both exams. In the SSC CGL exam, the level of reasoning is very easy. On the other hand, reasoning is considered by most students to be the hardest part of the SBI PO exam.

In SBI PO, questions are mainly based on seating arrangements, syllogisms, puzzles, input-output, encoding and decoding, order and classification, inequalities, directions and distances, blood relations, verbal reasoning, etc. Many of these chapters appear in SSC CGL exam as well, but at a lower level.

His approach:

Since you need to study Reasoning for SBI PO anyway, make sure you do it thoroughly. You will not need to replay these chapters for SSC CGL. Just be sure to take a lot of mock SBI PO tests. Also be sure to get plenty of Reasoning questions in the Testbook Practice & Test app and elsewhere.

Once you are done with the Reasoning chapters requested in SBI PO, you can take a look at the additional Reasoning chapters requested in the SSC CGL Level I exam. Remember that there are NO reasoning questions asked in the SSC CGL Level II exam. So focus most of your effort on preparing Reasoning NOW!

(D) General awareness (and financial awareness)

Source: Google.

There is no General Awareness section in the OSE OP preliminaries. On the other hand, the General Awareness section at SBI PO Mains focuses on Financial Awareness. The General Awareness section has 50 points on the Level I exam. At Level II, however, it has 200 points, that is, 50% of its work.

It goes without saying that general awareness will play a key role in your preparation. How you prepare for this section will set you apart from those who prepare GA at the last minute without any real strategy.

The GA section of both SSC CGL exams largely covers Static GK topics along with some topical questions. Static GK includes topics such as History, Geography, Politics, Science and Technology in General, Environment, Sports, etc. and also topical questions. The syllabus for this part is obviously very extensive.

Your approach to current affairs and financial awareness:

You need to make sure you approach this section wisely. Be sure to read the Daily Current Affairs capsules. In addition, you must take the daily news questionnaires. This is an activity that you should make a daily habit. Spend 15-20 minutes a day on Current Affairs. This is best accomplished with the Current Affairs app.

Increase your awareness of current affairs with financial awareness capsules and financial awareness quizzes. You can postpone the Financial Awareness study until after the OSE PO preliminaries if you don't have time. But for the best results, you'd better not put it off for too long.

For both Current Affairs and Financial Awareness, you should be up to date with at least 3-4 months of news. If you have time, come back in 5-6 months. Don't forget the "sweet spot"! That is, important news 2 to 2.5 months before the exam date.

Your approach to Static GK:

Now comes the tricky part! How and how much to study Static GK. You already know that Static GK can appear on both exams, but it appears heavily on the SSC CGL exam. You need to cover many topics and, most importantly, remember everything you have read. It will not be possible for you to study all of the Static GK only after the SBI PO exam is completed. Therefore, you must start the preparation immediately.

The best approach for Static GK is to read the Static GK articles and capsules and save them as PDF files for review. Perform the Static GK tests once you are done with the capsules. This will help you test your retention. Also be sure to practice the questions in the Testbook practice app to cover various topics. This also has the added advantage that you are testing a combination of questions. Some GK question banks will also help you solve the problem.

(E) Computer skills

Source: Google.

Just one more topic to cover. The portion for this section is small and if you have used a computer, you will be able to prepare this portion very quickly. This section will weigh heavily on the SBI PO Mains exam. On the other hand, you will find a maximum of 2 questions on the SSC CGL exam. It's a scoring topic that can be quickly resolved on paper, so don't ignore it.

Your strategy:

Unlike Current Affairs & GK, where the chunk is huge, this one has a fixed curriculum. The concepts can be easily understood if you show a little interest. Use the app to practice. And keep looking for Computer Knowledge Capsules in PDF.

6. Your career goals.

Source: Google.

The nature of the job, powers, benefits, and career prospects are very different for both positions. You must decide what you want out of life and in what direction you want your career to move.

7. Remaining preparation time.

Your decision will also depend on the time factor, as you should not make plans that are unattainable. Time plays an important role. Because at the end of the day, if you run out of time, even the best laid plans will go to waste.

In conclusion,

The information provided above should serve as a starting point for how to prepare for the 2016 Bank PO and SSC CGL exams simultaneously. Start with the common topics. Thereafter, move on to topics that will give you the maximum return in terms of the marks you get. Don't forget to reevaluate your strategy every week.

I know the answer is long, but you have a very good perspective that will not only help you decide whether to attend both exams, but will also help you prepare.

Hope this answer helps you in some way. Good luck!!

Both jobs are government jobs, big name jobs, and steady jobs. Since everything has its pros and cons, these two types of jobs are no different.

Both jobs are government jobs, big name jobs, and steady jobs. Since everything has its pros and cons, these two types of jobs are no different. Well, before mentioning the pros and cons based on some parameters, I suggest that you choose the job that suits your requirements and personality, as a wrong person in the wrong place can be dangerous for the organization and for the company. person himself. .

  1. Promotions, well, this is in favor of the banking sector. Promotion is at a faster pace and if you are selected as a PO, you are definitely in the running for the top management positions and could end up in the top position when you retire. In SSC, the promotion rate is slower, apart from some publications like ITI, CSS and Examiner.
  2. Transfers: this favors SSC cgl. In banks you will be transferred frequently. Sometimes if your manager is not good they might even transfer you early. Also, transfer is something that is used as a weapon most of the time. In SSC, you will be transferred, but after completing a fixed period of time in one place. There is also a high possibility of publications in the state of origin.
  3. Power and respect: When it comes to power, the SSC has an advantage over the bench. Whereas, in banking, you don't have enough power until you reach management positions. Both are renowned jobs and are fairly respected in society.
  4. Salary: 4600 grade paying positions have a better salary package compared to banking positions. But the salary in SSC is reviewed every 10 years under pay commission, while the salary of bank employees is reviewed every 5 years. Along with that, there are many allowances and benefits for a po bank.
  5. Working time: working time is fixed for SSC positions and bank employees. But, it is not arranged for a po bank. So again SSC has an advantage on this.
  6. Incorporation and selection process: banking is far ahead of the CSS in this regard. The banking examination is simple, without protests, cheating, standardization problems, the judicial process and the accession process is also very fast. But, the SSC process is lethargic, full of faulty question papers, surrounded by cheats, protests, court cases, and full of student complaints. It tests a student's patience to the fullest and every year from filling out the exam form to final assignment takes a long time, increases frustration, and yet SSC remains steadfast throughout the entire process. So, if you want to test your patience, family support, and level of questions from family members about your job, opt for SSC.
  7. Vacancies: This is a cause for concern for aspiring banks. Each year vacancies are reduced, while SSC has at least 10k vacancies each year.
  8. Job Type: A bank's working environment is comfortable, it involves public transactions, so if you want to interact with new people, this is the job for you. Although this is not the case in some CSS positions, it involves both field work and desk work, so it depends on your choice, in which environment you want to work. Sometimes, there is some political interference in a few positions.
  9. Responsibilities: Every government job is full of responsibilities. So each one is respectable on his part.

I think it covers important areas of concern for each applicant. If you have any other questions, or want to suggest some other parameter that I should have included, please comment, I will add it.

Thank you and all the best !!!

WARNING: Long answer ahead. Skip to the end if you are lazy

I had the illusion that the life of a banker is easy.

The illusion was shattered after I joined and started working there.

1) RISK IS AN INEVITABLE PART OF THE JOB.

A bank official faces constant financial risk.

WARNING: Long answer ahead. Skip to the end if you are lazy

I had the illusion that the life of a banker is easy.

The illusion was shattered after I joined and started working there.

Let me first list the challenges that a banker must face

1) RISK IS AN INEVITABLE PART OF THE JOB.

A bank official faces constant financial risk.

"To err is human," but if a banker makes a mistake, he must bear a monetary penalty.

Cada pago en efectivo realizado, cada transacción de transferencia, transacción NEFT / RTGS implica la posibilidad de cometer un error que costará caro. Somos como porteros en el fútbol que perdemos si fallamos.

The vigilance that needs to be maintained to avoid risk and in detecting frauds is the burden every banker shoulders

The risk element exponentially increases if you're involved in CREDIT and FOREX. There is a train of documentation and any lapse will be viewed severely. Not to mention the due diligence and compliance norms have become increasingly strict and complex in light of the recent frauds.

Yes, all of what I mentioned is a part of the job description but what makes it further challenging brings me to my next point

2)CUSTOMER EXPECTATIONS AND DEMANDS:

Customer is the most important person in the branch. It is their right to expect Quality customer service.

However, there are few customers who expect us to deviate our bank's guidelines and protocols at the pretext of customer service. When there unreasonable request is denied on legitimate grounds they tend to get agitated. They start yelling, berating and giving out threats. In very rare circumstances even resort to violence.

One person like this is enough to ruin the day of any normal person but we bankers can't let it affect us as the next customer is waiting to be served.

Unrealistic customer expectations are the other problem every banker endures. Few of the customers might actually have time traveled from the future as they believe loan sanction and disbursement should happen in seconds, their cheques cleared in minutes and their yearly deposit to mature in an hour.

The job seems challenging enough already right but wait there is more…

3) TARGETS

The competitive environment is wonderful from a customers perspective, a customer's Paradise. However, it means constant hell for the employees.

Daily reporting of targets, weekends sacrificed for loan campaigns and never ending series of Maha Login days for XYZ financial product.

Targets pressure is always there and it will only increase the higher up the ladder you go.

4) TRANSFER POLICY

As a banker frequent transfers are inevitable. These transfers could affect the career of our spouse and will definitely impact the education of children in future. Traveling to new places might be fun for vacations but beginning our lives in a new place every few years can burden the family.

5) COMPLIANCE AND AUDIT

Banking industry has very strict compliance norms, rightly so, as the money of public is involved. After the customer hours the staff have to ensure the necessary compliance and adherence to guidelines. Document the same for audit and inspection for purposes. This is what usually screws up our exit time.

It is not all bad, there are few BENEFITS of being a banker too

1) STEADY JOB

The job though taxing is secure. Until you do something very stupid or unethical your job is safe.

2) WORK IS ROUTINE

The work once mastered is usually repetitive. This might be construed as a negative by few but there is an undeniable comfort in operating in familiar settings. There are new things to be learnt and keep yourself updated with but the fundamentals remain the same. Just the way of doing things changes.

3) FINANCIAL STABILITY and ACUMEN

Every banker develops a certain degree of financial acumen over the course of their career. This is a side effect of all those product promotions and campaigns done to achieve targets. This, we are aware of the best products to invest and ensure that our family is financially stable.

4) EXCELLENT CAREER PROGRESSION AND DIVERSE LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

Banks have very good career progression. If you're smart, ambitious and diligent you can climb high and fast up the career ladder. Depending on the banks there are chances of foreign postings too. There are lot of departments in banks - Operations, Credit, Forex, Treasury, Digital banking, Vigilance, Inspection and Audit, Recovery to name a few. A career and a life time of learning awaits in each of them.

5) RENEWED PERSPECTIVE ABOUT MONEY & PEOPLE

As a banker you meet people from varied backgrounds and cultures. You learn not to judge someone by what they wear or how fluent their English is. Have seen that the simply rich are very simple in their attire and polite of tongue. The really insecure ones adopt a rich American accent and pretend to be HNIs and bitch about ever deteriorating customer service as they believe that's the only way we bankers will serve them properly.

As a banker you realise how big the income divide really is. You will be stunned to know how exorbitantly rich few people actually are. The sinking realisation dawns on you that your 9 to 5 job will never make you as rich as them. At the same time you see majority of people on the other end of spectrum who can't afford to have a normal savings account consider yourself lucky in comparison to them.

Your common sense actually improves. You realise money is important whether you're rich or poor. The rich have their money problems and the poor have their money problems. You realise money ironically causes as many problems as it solves. However, being poor sucks more.

In short

I am preparing for SSC CGL 2018 as I feel some of the posts offer interesting opportunities and better work life balance as compared to working in a bank. I treasure the experiences and perspectives gifted to me by my banking career. However, just because something is good doesn't mean we should stop pursuing what we perceive to be better.

I work for the secretary of SBI. I am from Assam. They bet me a long way from my home despite being a local person. So never think that being a local you can get good posts, but it's so much better for a person applying from other states as few people who applied from other states quit within a week of joining because the posts were way above The expectations.

If I had to choose between SBI secretary and SSC CGL, I would choose SSC CGL any day. Too bad they would choose SBI. Too much frustration, work is not done. It is just a month in which I am supposed to learn things, I am here to serve the client, with Kyc on top

I work for the secretary of SBI. I am from Assam. They bet me a long way from my home despite being a local person. So never think that being a local you can get good posts, but it's so much better for a person applying from other states as few people who applied from other states quit within a week of joining because the posts were way above The expectations.

If I had to choose between SBI clerk and SSC CGL, I’d choose SSC CGL any day. Pity on them who’d choose SBI. Too much frustration, the work doesn’t end. Its barely a month where I’m supposed to learn things, I’m here to do customer handling, with Kyc updation, ATM SMS everything, that too in a system that is hell slow, with the fking fact that I’m already given the tag of kamchor, just because I wanted to leave the hell box within 5:30, although my office timing is 4:45 max they want me to work till 7. I get barely an amount to sustain my self, and have to clean my room, wash my clothes and cook and also take rest, how can they imagine me to work till 7–8, where going to market everyday and buying items and reaching home takes around an hour. I don’t get furniture allowance 6o buy a fridge so that I don’t need to go to market daily nor enough money to hire a maid to cook and wash utensils. If you want your assistant staff to work till 7–8, you should over pay them, but no, they want free service and overburden staff. Entire bank is working with only 50–60% of required staffs only.

I want to cry but I can’t. Some of the people who had links with upper management got postings as near as 1km to their home, just because of reasons less stated. I want to study for better opportunities but unable to, I want to enjoy my life at least a little but unable to, I want to get paid for whatever overtime I work but unable to. It looks like they took to make robots, we are nothing but mass labour who are supposed to work like hell and keep their mouth shut. Can’t even share my feelings because it can put a dark light in service records.
