    I have applied for SBI Associate po.
    Wuld like to know any special last min. tip

  24. Hello frieds.... don't get panicky by reading other people's reviews and how many questions they have attempted.And if you think that your paper was tougher that other people's ,then it doesn't matter at all.Because the scoring and final qualified list will be made on the basis of ""Equipercentile Method"".

    Your percentile will depend upon how you performed in your exam.

    e.g if your exam was of 11th oct ,then your ranking will depend upon the number of candidated that apeared on 11th and how you performed on 11th.Your selection and ranking doesn't depend upon the exam held on 18th Oct.
    For more details read this and you will understand.

    Many of you wil be releaved.
