When we look at the IBPS RRB (PO) Prelims examination, it consists of two sections: quantitative aptitude and reasoning ability. However, the mains examination of IBPS RRB (PO) consists of 5 sections which include Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, General Awareness, English / Hindi and Computer Knowledge. 

General Awareness (GA) is an intrinsic part of mains examination of RRB. The General Awareness portion is a marks fetching portion of the mains stage if prepared with dedication and the right strategy.

GA is very helpful not only for conquering extra marks in mains but also for the interview process. To ace through the general awareness section, we will provide you the best plan.
