Quantitative Aptitude

Major difference I feel is that there are high level Geometry and Trigonometry questions in SSC CGL while these topics remains missing from IBPS PO.


As SSC CGL is going online, I think difficulty level and syllabus of both exams will be same.

General Awareness

GK for SSC CGL is wider than IBPS PO . There are questions from Science, History and Economics while in IBPS PO questions are generally related to Banking and Current affairs.
