First impressions are always the best impressions!

You want to be a star in the banking industry…

Do you have a clear passport-sized colored photograph of yourself against a light colored or white background? (The preferred dimension is 200x230 pixels and file size between 20 kb – 50 kb.)
And most importantly… is it your latest one?

NOTE: Please don’t insert your photograph that you have taken on a picnic or in a group.
Now about your signature…It should be signed on white paper with a black ink pen only. And it should be signed by you and no one else. (The preferred dimension is 140 x 60 pixels and file size between 10 kb – 20kb.)

Your online application is valid only if you scan and upload the photograph and your signature as mentioned. Ensure you have scanned your photograph and your signature as specified in the notification.
There are two separate links that will help you upload your photograph and signature.
Make certain you upload your photograph and signature correctly for your application to be provisionally registered.

Study smart and prepare for the questions real-time. The more you practice the better you get.

With the hectic lifestyle that we follow, it is a challenge to search for question papers to prepare yourself for the ensuing exam. They are designed to help identify your weak areas, so that you can revise your study plan accordingly.

There is no fixed syllabus as such. The SBI PO exam will assess your ability in Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, English, General Awareness, Computers Knowledge and Marketing Aptitude.

How good is your vocabulary? Can you identify idioms and reconstruct words in a sentence without any errors? Have you been following on the latest news, both globally and locally? Do you know the difference between short précis, letter writing and essay? Square roots and cube roots? Simple interest and compound interest?

As Nora Roberts says - “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”

Start now and you will be there! All the best!
