A good knowledge of your own background is essential to make you stand out as an ideal candidate.
- Revision is a must
The second part is where you make sure you are well versed with all the theories and concepts. Even though your knowledge part has been tested in the written exam, there can be some random questions which can be asked from there as well, so it’s important to brush up your knowledge with the help of vigorous revision so you can avoid any curveballs in the interview.
- Stay updated
The third category which you need to pay attention to is the current economy. You can stay updated about everything which is going on in the economy of the country with the help of newspapers which you can read everyday and make notes as well in order to stay up to date.
