RBI Grade B Preparation: Key Methods

  1. Before getting out of bed in the morning, plan your day and try your hardest to keep to it.
  2. Depending on your schedule, revise either daily or monthly. Students can follow a daily revision program while working aspirants might follow a weekly revision schedule.
  3. You should carefully review publications from previous years. By doing this, you will be able to identify the key aspects of the subjects that are static and throw light on the ebb and flow of trends and patterns.
  4. Conduct a Self-Assessment every so often: As you are the best judge of yourself, make sure to observe yourself. You must know your weaknesses and how much time you should spend on each subject.
  5. Don’t spend too much time reading the news. Before interviews, current affairs publications are more beneficial. Arguments and viewpoints are more helpful at the interview stage. In Phases 1 and 2, you may rely on monthly publications.
  6. Refrain from rushing through crucial activities like filling out application forms and downloading admission cards at the last minute.

RBI Grade B 2023 Recruitment: Preparation Strategies

  • To create a successful strategy and study plan that will propel them towards success, applicants must thoroughly prepare and go properly. The effectiveness of preparation is crucial in deciding the outcome. For the candidates’ benefit, we have included some RBI Grade B preparation advice organized by professionals.
  • That is not true if you believe that those with a good finance background can only pass this test. For this exam, individuals with backgrounds in journalism are also chosen. For details, review the qualifying requirements.
  • You are mistaken if you believe graduates from IITs and IIMs are favored. No one is given priority in any way. That is untrue. Your performance in the preliminary, main, and interview exams determines everything.
  • You’ll be making a significant error if you concentrate on prelims for the time being and mains afterward.
  • Economics and General Studies may be helpful for UPSC applicants; however, the RBI prelims test has numerous fact-based or stats questions, such as the amount allotted to a given plan, which is uncommon for UPSC.

RBI Grade B Preparation Tips & Strategies 2023

  • Don’t start with everything; instead, go through each topic one at a time.
  • I would advise you to start with this section because management is the most static and doesn’t involve any current situations. This way, you may edit it the most.
  • Give yourself 3 to 4 hours each day to finish the management for the month and take notes at the same time. Writing anything down helps you to understand it better and helps you to remember it for longer.
  • Since the test isn’t today or tomorrow but rather nine months from now, you need notes for review.
  • After finishing Management, begin Finance and Economics simultaneously because there are few topics that are unrelated. Allow another two months to finish these two studies.
  • Therefore, you have finished all of the static material for ESI and FM in three months.
  • Phase I Practice and revision will come at last.

RBI Grade B Preparation Tip 2023: General Awareness

60% of the Phase 1 current affairs questions and nearly 100% of Phase 2 current affairs questions in RBI Grade B 2021 and 2022 came from the following 4 sources:

  • PIB issues a press release on RBI
  • news release from SEBI
  • Indices and Reports

Simply put, you must comprehend that the General Awareness (GA) portion of Phase I of the RBI Grade B Exam is not GA; rather, it consists primarily of 40–50% questions from Economics and Social Issues, 20% from Finance, and many more from Agriculture and Rural Development, Economics and, Social Issues, and 20–20% from Finance. 

This concept also applies to the NABARD Grade A Exam, which includes many questions from the previous four sections. These current events have a high “Return on Investment” (ROI).

RBI Grade B 2023: Time Management Tips

  • The RBI Grade B Exam Pattern has undergone various changes, per the 2022 Grade B notice. Similarly, the prelims will consist of 200 questions to be answered within 120 minutes.  
  • This translates to 1.6 minutes, or approximately 100 seconds, for every question for the applicant. Aside from the English Precis/Essay portion, there were no other questions in the mains that used descriptive language before. 
  • One must continuously practice exams under exam-like circumstances in order to ace the Phase 1 exam, and one must also possess the aptitude to solve problems quickly.
  • And when preparing for the mains, it is important to have a good timer count in front of you so you don’t run out of time during the real Phase 2 examination.
