Surely it's worth. After BSc in mathematics Joining banking sector is a good option. SSC is also a good option. You can also try to crack competitive exams.
I know three branch managers of our nearest SBI banks are BSc graduate in mathematics.

Yes its a good option. There are lot of students completed their course and still jobless. I think bank will surely provide you a job with good salary. So its better to join for bank coaching and obtain a job.

Since the fields and the pattern of examination of both bank and SSC are different, you can choose either one of the two and try hard for that. You can take coaching to get good guidance and to know the competition involved in a particular examination. Since you have ample time to write your competitive exams, you can even try to take coaching for both if you can manage and if you are really interested. In my opinion, it is always better to concentrate on one examination instead of attending all types of exams. It is the determination that make you succeed in your life. The scope in banking sector will remain good even in future. The posts filled through SSC is always limited.

Since you are in the first year of B.Sc, you are having ample time for the preparation of these tests. At this stage, you should contemplate on your studies so that you pass out your graduation with distinction marks.
Then, you have to choose either of the courses for the preparation since preparation - pattern for these courses are quite different.
For the probationary - officers Examination of Banks, you have to be proficient in Mathematics, English and General - knowledge. Even in the field of Mathematics, you have to be aware of the methods taking less time to arrive at the right answers. In fact, time alloted is less as compared to number of questions. You can strengthen your English Skill with your daily practice of reading of reading some distinguished papers. In that way, you can be proficient in both the areas- improvement in your English - skill and strengthening your General - knowledge. Otherwise, you can take the help of some renowned coaching Institutes - already in this line.
In the upcoming time, there would be lot of vacancies of Probationary - officers in the banks in the wake of heavy retirements of senior - officers.
SSC would offer you oppurtunities to a lesser extent.

You have sufficient time to prepare for the competitive examinations and make your choice first. Generally Science Graduates have a slighter edge over others because of their Mathematical background provided they follow the examination pattern correctly. Any graduate is eligible for Bank officers examination or Assistants Grade Examination, Auditors/Accountants/UDCs examination conducted by SSC. Though there is a slight variation in the pattern, test for reasoning/logical intelligence, GK and English are common for any test. So, be a regular reader of Competition Success Review and other competitive magzines. Solve the model papers very often. it will increase your speed which really matters in a competitive examination. Follow the news papers and quiz programmes in TV channels regularly. This would help you.

Coming to RBI Group B Officers' examination, it is one of the toughet examination and through knowledge in socio-economic problem evaluation and Economics and Geography. Being a graduate, you can opt for Civil services and state level Group I services examination also. But you have to work hard and plan your strategy for these examinations.
