Hi Friends, the exam seems to have just knocked the door. With the admit cards now available, students have become all the more agile and have started focusing on their strengths so that they can make the best use of the time they would be getting in the actual exams.  Looking at that, we bring to you two simple sets on seating arrangement that is one of the IBPS favourites and which are almost RRB type in difficulty and confusion involved before the exam so that you can get into the composure and rhythm that is required before the exams. Bank exams have now gained popularity over the years because of the sheer challenge and variety that a student gets to face.

Challenges make leaders. Come, become one with this small challenge! 🙂
