SBI Clerk Exam Preparation Tips

Dear Mockbankers

IBPS Clerk Result was released on 1st of April 2016. Many of you may not have received the result as per your expectations. The seats were very limited and also because of that interview dilemma, things didn’t work out as per the plan. But No need to worry my friend, as that was not the last job opportunity. SBI is going to announce the SBI Clerk Exam soon. The notification is expected in a few weeks and that means the preparation you did for the IBPS Clerk Exam will not go in vain.

As per SBI officials, this year there will be no separate notifications for SBI Clerk as they have changed the nomenclature of the post. The Junior Associate notification is the SBI Clerk notification for the year 2016.
