  • The present article is PIN 2013. Dealing from Jan2013 upto 13th Oct2013. Mainly keeping IBPS PO/MT/Clerk, UPSC’s CAPF-CDS-IFOS and other upcoming State PCS, PSU, SSC exams in mind.

  • For optimum result: copy paste this data in MS word, then keep updating from magazines and newspapers until you get selected in your dream job. Otherwise ‘firefighting” style of preparation (that once IBPS is over I’ll not study until SSC 2014’s hallticket comes)=#epicfail.

  • If there are any additions, corrections, do post them in comments.

  • By the way RAS Prelim exam halltickets have been uploaded click me (Sarkari servers always slow so try during non-office hours.)
