Effective Preparation for any Clerk or Banking PO Entrance must include thorough revision of Current Affairs before the Exam. Considering both IBPS PO & Clerk are scheduled to be conducted before the end of the year, questions from the second half of 2017 are bound to be there in the Exam. Thus, we suggest that you pay special emphasis on improving your awareness of events pertaining to this period.

To help you do that, we publish the Best Bank PO Online Classes on our Youtube channel and keep coming up with regular General Knowledge Updates. The latest GA update from September has been given below:
