How to Prepare English for RBI Grade B Phase 2 2021

 The English language section of RBI Grade B Phase-2  is carrying a weightage of hundred marks for which candidates will be given 90 minutes.  It will be a descriptive type paper comprising of three types of questions:

  • Comprehension
  • Precis writing
  • Essay writing

The candidates need to prepare for these types of questions efficiently to score maximum marks in the English language section as it carries equal weightage as compared to the other two sections. Let us not have a look at the section-wise preparation strategy for the English language of RBI Grade B Phase 2 Exam 2021.


In this section, there will be a passage and candidates need to answer the questions after reading the passage thoroughly. Let us look at some tips that the candidates must follow while attempting the comprehension questions:

  • Do not copy and form the answer from the comprehension. Candidates are advised to frame their answers with grammatically correct sentences which satisfy the need of the question.
  • Do not assume what the correct answer is. If you have any doubt read the comprehension again and try to find the answer.
  • Candidates must read the comprehension first without the intention of answering the question and then read the questions. After reading the questions candidates must read the comprehension again, now with the intention of answering those questions. This trick is very efficient as the answer that the candidates will frame will have higher accuracy than the standard method.
  • Candidates must polish their reading skills by reading daily newspapers, magazines, and their aureoles. Improved reading skills will help the candidates in answering and analyzing the comprehension accurately.

Essay writing

Candidates will be given a topic on which they have to write an essay. Candidates will be judged on their vocabulary, sentence forming, grammatically correct sentences, and overall writing skills. Let us look at some tips that the candidates must follow to prepare for the essay writing:

  • The moment candidates get a look at the topic on which they have to write the essay, candidates must make bullet notes that they will be covering in their entire essay.
  • Introduction: begin the essay with the introduction of that topic: its history, detailed information about the topic, or its definition. The introduction will give and drop a good impact on the reader as it will indicate that you have the required knowledge about the topic.
  • Content: This means the body of the essay where you will be discussing the detailed information about the topic and explain it A-Z.
  • Conclusion: How you end an essay shows the level of your writing skills. Candidates are advised to conclude their essay with suggestions, solutions, or examples to leave a positive impact on the reader.
  • Try to remember some quotes. Opening an essay with a quote will leave a delightful impact and will generate immense interest in the minds of the readers.

Precis writing

Here the candidates have to write a short and crisp summary of a passage that will be given. Now let us look at some basic ways through which candidates can prepare for these types of questions:

  • Read passages from the newspapers, after reading those passages try to summarise it and practice like this twice or thrice a day.
  • Make sure that the summary that you are writing equally covers each topic as compared to the original passage.
  • Make sure that you are not exceeding the word limit mentioned on the question paper.
  • Try to make a rough structure of the passage that will be given. Note down all the points that are covered in the original passage and cover those points shortly and crisply.
  • Make sure that you are adding all the facts and keywords that are mentioned in the original paragraph or comprehension. 

Following all the above instructions and preparation strategies/tips candidates can ensure scoring maximum marks in the English section of the RBI Grade B Phase-2 Exam.
