Bank Entrance Exam Coaching Classes

Bank Entrance Exam Coaching Classes is now a hot and trending sector in the country. The concept of working in nationalized banks is an old one. To join this sector, one has to crack the bank entrance exam first. With the introduction of private banks, several new opportunities have been created. This has resulted in a huge competition in the banking sector in terms of services, facilities and even promotions. Many have resorted to coaching for their bank entrance exam preparation.

Due to competition, banks have resorted to recruitments through entrance tests to ensure a high & uniform standard of employee pool. With exception of some private banks conducting their own exams, the Common Written Examination (CWE) is conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS). The result of this exam is accepted by about 21 public sector banks for the recruitment of clerical staff & probationary officer’s post.

This system of Common Examination for recruitment of Probationary Officers/ Management Trainees has been approved by each of the participating Public Sector Banks and the Managing Committee of the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) with the consent of the Government of India.
