Banking and Government examinations are quite competitive. Every mark can make
the difference between the selection and rejection of a candidate. Therefore, as a
serious aspirant, it should be your objective to get every mark you can possibly earn.

change and therefore you only need to memorize it once and then refresh your
memory from time to time as and when needed. Hence, we at Oliveboard regularly
bring you Static GK e-Books in which the information has been neatly compiled and
managed such that it’s easy for you to study and revise the said information. This time,
