Syllabus-for-IBPS-RRB-2017-Exam

As IBPS does not release a syllabus for this particular examination, we can conjecture by the questions asked in the previous years that the syllabus is really vast and tough. It is geared towards testing an aspirant’s flexibility to solve complex questions. So, here is the syllabus being provided by Adda247 to get you acquainted with the pattern of examination.

Students, here we are providing you with all the topics that are asked in the different five sections along with the number of questions asked on them in IBPS RRB Office Assistant and Officer Scale-I 2016 Prelims and Mains exam. The point to be noted here is that all the topics are equally important regardless of the number of questions asked on them in 2016 as we all know that the pattern of all the banking examination has shown a drastic variation when compared to previous year’s examinations. The upward trend in the complexity of questions has only made the consistency of the examination pattern a question mark. So, prepare all the topics well. You can refer to the pattern asked in the previous years but cannot completely rely on it. Be ready for a bolt from the blue and prepare accordingly.

Reasoning Ability


Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it the cold shoulder. Earlier students used to have a mindset of ignoring the complex puzzles, thereby solving the other questions that were comparatively easy. But to their dismay, this strategy won’t be working anymore as so many questions from the other topics like directions, etc. are being asked in the form of puzzles only. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming exam of IBPS RRB is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. Following is the syllabus of Reasoning Ability for IBPS RRB 2017 Examination:

  • Puzzles
