General English Preparation Tips for SBI Apprentices

Let us divide the English Language Section of the SBI Apprentices preparation tips into two groups. First, if you have a strong command of the language and a good basis. Second, if your basics are lacking. So, let’s break down the English method into two sections.

If you have good skills and strong basics:
  1. It’s easy to do well in this part if your basics are clear and strong.
  2. Continue to read the newspaper every day and study for the mock tests.
  3. Examine the results of your mock tests. You’ll do well if you identify your weak and strong areas and improve on them accordingly.
If you lack basics:
  1. The first step is to purchase Wren and Martin’s grammar book, read it thoroughly as many times as you can, try and understand it.
  2. Vocabulary does not develop overnight. It’s something that takes a long time to develop. Hard work and perseverance are required to improve vocabulary. 
  3. Newspapers, magazines, novels, and advertisements should all be read. 
  4. Read whatever you want. This will assist you in learning how to construct sentences, which idioms and phrases to use, and much more.
  5. For example, if you come across the phrase “indubitable,” look up its definition immediately and try to learn it. 
General/Financial Awareness Preparation Strategy for SBI Apprentice
