    Iska answer koi nahi de sakta.
  • It's all up to you-managing time is an art and each one is the artist of a unique type. You should prioritise your schedule -the daily ones.Leaves should be managed effectively specially during Mains time. It can be done provided you believe you can do.
    All the best!!

    Yar what timetable? You have syllabus...yu have booklist and you have days..now its upto you how you complete syllabus study either 3 hours or 10 or 20...it doesn't matter..bas syllabus complete kar ke revise hona chaiye.
  • from my personal experience and of others i can tell you that it with a job which entails public dealing it is impossible to study for cse . but if you have already given 2-3 attempts in mains with serious prep then you can manage.

    very difficult to say. most of the people here have left their jobs due to time crunch. As far as i know, bank po barely get much time after work hours, in some cases they work for longer hrs than the IT professionals.

    the problem with bank job is that you need to constantantly work looking at computer screen with full attention to evade chances of wrong entry or authorization. Plus dealing with customers can drain all your energy.
    There is no define work which you can finish fast and then can read newspaper or other such stuff. Work never ends in bank literally. Plus staff crunch due to retirement and people leaving within 2 years of joining has spell doom on banking.
