RBI Grade B Preparation Tips

Due to its extensive syllabus and few slots, RBI Grade B is among India’s most difficult banking exams. Annually, the Reserve Bank of India holds the RBI Grade B exam to find qualified candidates in the general seniority category.

This allure attracts a large number of students to this coveted exam. Aside from working for such a respected company, many hopefuls aspire to live the prestigious and comfortable lifestyle that an RBI officer enjoys.

Tip #1

Prepare a schedule ahead of time to ensure that you finish the syllabus in a timely manner before the exam. When making the schedule, make sure to allot enough time to each component. It’s also a good idea to allocate specific days to each segment.

Tip #2

Make sure you schedule revision and mock exams on weekends while studying for the exam. Initially, you must complete at least 2-4 simulated tests every week, and 10 days before the examination, you must complete one fake test per day.
