  2. @NEELAM You are allowed to post your mobile number here. It can be misused by unknown people.


    There are two reasons that you are unable to get a job :-
    1) Low score and passing with minimum marks required to clear cutoff
    2) Bad performance at interviews.

    For first problem I strongly recommend you increase your problem solving speed beacuse after 2 years you might have completed whole the syllabus many time. There are many articles on my blog which can help you in changing your strategy


    For the second problem, You are not focussing on GK and Computers. In ibps interviews, level of knowledge in computers and GK is checked.

    Hope you will understand.

    Sorry but I lost your number. You can drop me your number in our facebook page.
