All those who are yet to appear for the SBI Clerk examination, Mr. Jha advised to work on their calculation skills as the Numerical Ability section is time-consuming. Do not forget to revise formulas and theorems. English Section is very scoring this time. Start with English Section first and then move on with your strong areas. We suggest to pay more stress on revision and avoid getting confused by learning new things at the last moment.
