6 Months Detailed Study Plans For IBPS PO, Tips and Tricks To Follow

In this post I am giving the detailed 6 months study plans to crack IBPS PO exam. students also post in some other website that they prepared only for 3 month and some says for 1 month and cracked the PO exam. But in my experience and knowledge you should start as early as you can, because if you have enough time so why to waste it. Why to take risk? Same will not happen for everyone.

April month has started. IBPS has already its PO and clerks exam dates. So the time has come to be serious about our preparation. Time has changed. Competition is becoming tougher day by day. Time has gone when it was easy to crack exams. Most of my friends had cracked bank exams earlier very easily by doing some basic preparation and now are working in nationalized banks as PO and clerks.
Everybody wants a Govt sector job because Govt jobs are secure and more prestigious. Due to recession private jobs are becoming insecure. So most engineering students are running for Govt and public sector jobs.
