May 4th, 2014 by

One of the most common questions that goes through a student’s mind is, “Do I have enough time to prepare?” And if the student is preparing for SBI PO 2014 exam, it becomes of paramount importance, primarily because there is only 1 month left for the exam.

It felt like something worth doing and we gave it a fair shot. But things have changed since then. Video streaming isn’t a big problem anymore, nearly every student has access to a decent internet connection and people have started caring about issues like audio and video quality.
