RBI Grade-B 2018 Exam Section-Wise Strategy

General Awareness Section Strategy

  • To save your precious time, we provide you with an alternative that is Adda247’s “Daily GK Update” (Available in both Hindi and English languages) that includes only the news that is important from the point of view of competitive examinations. It contains all the news that is likely to be asked in the this year’s RBI Grade B Examination. 
  • Avoid the habit of ignoring the everyday news, telling yourself that you will do it in the end when the examinations are close, you only end up lying crushed under a pile of news. 
  • You can go through the Monthly Capsules provided by Bankersadda for both Current Affairs as well as Banking Awareness. 

English Language Section Strategy

  • The trick to scoring in the English section can vary from one person to another depending on his/her strengths and weaknesses. 
  • If you are good at vocab and reading then attempt the reading comprehension first and proceed with Cloze Test and other miscellaneous topics like Error Detection, Para Jumbles, Phrase Replacement, Double Fillers, etc. 
  • But if you are good at grammar, attempt Reading Comprehension in the end. 
  • The Reading comprehension too should be attempted in a way that you attempt questions based on vocab and phrases first and then the questions that need a deeper penetration through the paragraphs. 
  • The important topics for cloze test are subject-verb agreement, preposition, and verbs. These topics may help you do some other questions too that will be based on grammar. So make sure that you have these topics at your fingertips when you are to attempt the examination.  

Quantitative Aptitude Section Strategy

  • The trick to scoring marks in Quantitative Aptitude Section is to attempt the questions on Quadratic Equations, Simplification and Approximation first and then going for Number Series. 
  • After having attempted all these questions efficiently, go for Data Interpretation. 
  • The remaining few questions will be based on miscellaneous topics like CI & SI, Time and Work, Pipes, and Cisterns, Partnership, etc. 

Reasoning Section Strategy

  • The trick to attempt the maximum number of questions in Reasoning Section in minimum time is to attempt the difficult puzzles in the end. 
  • Start with the questions that are not in the form of puzzles, you can choose to start with the questions based on inequalities, direction and distance, syllogism, coding-decoding, alphanumeric series, and other random topics. 
  • Then try to start with puzzles that appear easy to solve and proceed with moderate and difficult puzzles in a similar way. So, this is how you have to manage to attempt this section.
So students, you still have more than a month to prepare for this examination. Never forget that the only way to crack banking examinations is practice. Practice is the only way to improve your speed and thus you attempt the maximum question in minimum time with the highest accuracy. Practice hard and bring it off. All the best!
