General Knowledge Preparation

General Knowledge questions based on Heads of Important Organizations of India and the World are pretty common in management entrance exams like XAT and SNAP. Traditionally, IIFT always has one or two questions based on this in the GK section. These type of questions are also asked in exams for Bank PO, Bank Clerk, and as a matter of fact – these lists are actually important for any entrance exam that tests candidates based on General Knowledge.
While we have tried to make the list as comprehensive as possible, we request you comment on some positions/organizations that we have missed. We will add it to the list. Also, since this list is quite dynamic in nature and it keeps on changing, if you notice an error – please comment about that so that we can edit and update it on our list.
