  • Manipal Banking academy is one of the leading institutions in the country which imparts training to bank employees for enhanced banking and financial subjects. It has a tie up with many banks. It basically prepares them for higher responsibilities as well as to learn the latest development in the industry.

    I do not think that it will be helpful to you for the intended purpose. If you want to qualify in IBPS then you will have to make self study or join a coaching class for banking services. If you are really interested in this line better start preparing for IBPS exam by studying the exam guides and by solving the earlier year question papers.

    The IBPS exam consists of two phases - pre and main. In the pre exam one has to appear in the papers of English, Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning Ability while in the main exam the papers will consist of English, Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning Ability and Computer. There is a gap between the pre and main exam. For example IBPS 2018 online pre exam is scheduled for Sep'18 and those who are shortlisted will be called to appear in online mains exam in Nov'18. The selected candidates will be called for interview sometime in Jan/Feb'19.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Manipal Banking Academy is an academy giving training to the selected persons sponsored by the particular bank.You have to see the various advertisements given by various banks offering Probationary officer posts. You have to attend the written test and oral test. Once you are selected you will be sent to this academy for study purpose and the expenses will be given by the bank as loan and it will be repayable in equal instalments from your salary. You have to execute a bond as per the rules of the banks to serve for a minimum period of time.
    So if you want an admission to the bank you have to get coaching for facing the entrance and getting qualified. You have to get into a good coaching centre and get ready to face the written test. Be under constant watch for their notifications.

  • Manipal Banking Academy is an Institution where the aspirants are getting specialised training in the Banking - system once they are selected as PO.
    PO examination is tough in nature and hence to qualify the same, you need to be proficient in solving Mathematical - problems at shortest possible time with the correct answer. A sound concept of Mathematics is required to select the correct answer from the four given choices. Any error in the selection of the right answer will lead to deduction of marks and hence required a careful planning. Then there are General - aptitude test, Reasoning and General English carrying questions objective in nature. Here also the same procedure is applicable to choose correct answer from the given four alternatives.
    In order to crack the PO examination, you need to have a specialised training to solve the questions set for such tests. Get yourself enrolled in one of the premier institutions so as to get valuable inputs to qualify the test. After the written test, the oral interview will follow. Once you clear the PO test, you will get specialised training from Manipal Banking Academy and the expenditure involved for such training would require a loan from the bank where you are working presently. The loan amount is to be deducted in equal instalments from your salary - Bill.

  • 'Manipal' when said in connection with banking career should practically mean that the concerned bank selects fresh candidates to be its prospective officers by making them undergo customise or general training at the Manipal Academy as per the bank's needs.
