FAQS related to IBPS AFO 2019 Exam and Online Course

A.Most of us have two types of goals in life viz. a goal to earn money, and have all the luxuries and the second is usually to have a government (stable) job to rule out the fear of losing our job, fear of performance, fear of daily fixed timing, fear to be far away from home etc., Many of us prefer to achieve the second goal first, because of many reasons, and in the present times, when there is more focus on self-employment by the government and availability of very less vacancies in the government departments, leaving IBPS agriculture officer, the best choice for an agriculture graduate. Also, currently, the private companies opt for post graduates, preferably a candidate with an MBA for a marketing job or MSc/PhD for a research job. So joining bank as an agriculture officer is the best choice.
A. First of all, it is a specialist officer job which can be filled only by an Agri or allied sciences graduate, so you can expect less competition. Moreover, Mains exam is based on subject knowledge, and Prelims is merely a qualifying round. Second, whether you admit it or not, during the four years course in agriculture, there is a bond that develops between us and those, who are totally dependent on farming. So this is the only platform where we can serve the farmer community, as we have the power to provide credit which even a DM does not have. As a bureaucrat/politician, one can make the schemes/plans for the social upliftment, but only a banker can mobilize it, only a banker has the power of authority, whom to give a loan, and in this process, no one can interfere, so in itself this is a job with great respect and great power.
A. It is very rewarding to start one’s career in a bank as a scale 1 (officer cadre), as one has a career path that can lead to become a CMD of any bank, as you are aware, many of the present CMDs with various public sector banks, have started their career as an agriculture field officer. It is a white collar job with handsome salary, starting with apprx. 34k-36k after deductions, which is the current scenario, and since the revision of wages is pending from November, 2017, so the pay would be more by the time you join. Also other than the salary, there are many other allowances given by the bank like house rent allowance of 6-8k/month, petrol allowance 3-4k/month, similarly, newspaper allowance, cleaning allowance, entertainment allowance, medical allowance etc.,. and many other things like LFCs, foreign tours etc
A. To start with, please note, Mr. Suresh N. Patel (MD & CEO) of Andhra bank, started his career as an Agriculture Officer, Mr. Rajkiran Rai Gundyadka, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Union Bank of India started his career in 1986 as an Agricultural Finance Officer in Central Bank of India. He is an Agricultural Science graduate. The bank promotions are very quick. After joining, within three to four years, you can get your first promotion. Similarly, you can go up to scale 7 within twenty five to thirty years, by which you will become DGM or GM, which only means that you are the head of a region or a zone in which you will have 500 to 700 branches under your authority. Similarly, after GM then to Executive Director and finally to Chief Managing Director. Many of the present CMDs have started their career as an Agri officer.
A. It is the common query of almost all the Agri students as most of them are from non-Mathematical background. We all think that Quant is related to Maths but it is not completely true. It only needs the knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication etc which you learn during your primary/secondary schooling. Rest of the questions are just tricky. First of all, please come out of this false perception about Quant and Reasoning. If still you have doubt, then please watch videos on any topic of Quant on our YouTube Channel which will definitely boost your confidence. As far as English is concerned, start reading daily newspaper which is the simplest and the most effective method for preparing English. Best way to cover the Prelims syllabus is to practice questions from the topics and attempt as many mock tests as you can. So if you want to prepare for IBPS AFO, and then start it right away, you will definitely clear the exam.
