Remarkable work. Thumbs up. Just wanted to add that isn't YPIP's qualification a bit different from the SBOTS? I mean for YPIP the requisite qualification is Masters or Bachelors Degree (16 years of education) with 60% marks or equivalent CGPA in any discipline. I think this should be added in the Qualification section.

Once again, great work indeed. You have made it All-in-One thread for SBOT/YPIP aspirants.

Sample Paper SBP 3
At the turn of the twentieth century, people's attitudes toward money were
far more conservative than they are today. Borrowing and being in debt
were viewed as a moral failing, almost as a disgrace. Thrift and saving were
highly prized, and people who needed to borrow to make ends meet were
seen as careless, unreliable, or extravagant. The focus in the economy as a
whole was on developing large corporations like railroads, oil companies,
and other companies that produced basic goods and services.
Then, in the 1920s, the economy changed. A huge network of banks and
financial institutions developed, helping money to move more quickly and
easily through the economy. At the same time, the economy was increasing
its focus on consumer goods¡ª clothing, cars, household appliances, and
other things that individuals buy. To help promote the sale of these items,
consumers were encouraged to buy on credit. If they could not afford an
item right away, a store or a bank might lend them the money, which they
could pay back in installments.
With the development of consumer credit and installment purchases,
people's attitudes toward debt and spending changed. The model citizen
was no longer someone who was thrifty, buying only what he or she
needed. People were respected less for being thrifty than for knowing how
to use their money to buy as many things as possible¡ª an attitude that
persists at the turn of the twenty-first century.
4. According to the passage, which of the following is NOT a belief that was
commonly held in the early twentieth century?
A. Owing someone money is a moral failing.
B. People who save their money are respectable.
C. People who buy as many things as possible are respectable.
D. People who borrow money for necessities are careless and
unreliable.
5. What helped money move more quickly through the economy in the
1920s?
B. The growth of banks and financial institutions
C. The rate at which people paid back their loans
D. The increase in installment purchases
6. The author mentions cars as an example of
A. A consumer good
B. A household appliance
C. An extravagant purchase
D. A new invention
7. According to the passage, how did the rise of consumer credit change
people's attitudes toward debt and spending?
A. Attitudes toward debt and spending became more
conservative.
B. People used credit to buy only what they needed.
C. Extravagant borrowing and spending became highly prized.
D. Spending wisely became more respectable than being thrifty. Building Standards in Educational and Professional Testing

Info is good but some have no base

Dear Amna,

I appreciate your efforts, but i would like to know where did you got criteria of selection from? I am an officer of SBP and have asked this question personally to the talent management team, they said criteria for all the batches remained the same. Therefore, kindly mention a source of percentages you have quoted.

Regards,

Ateeb

Only facts

@ Amna,

thanks for posting a reply, but remember there was no relaxation in the selection criteria marks, just for age and that too for specified areas as is mentioned in the advertisements. And no relaxation on marks was given to any batch, no one should comment on this.

Regards,

Ateeb
