Focus On The General Awareness Section

After assessing the exam pattern, everyone will agree that the general awareness section is the most important section out of the four. A total of 80 questions were asked in the exam based on this topic, that means over one-third of the paper. Hence, candidates should give more priority to the general awareness section.

RBI has not published any detailed syllabus for the exam. Aspirants should start assessing the topics based on the sample questions in the information handout. Pick any book of your choice for the general awareness section and learn the statistical facts.

The current affairs are also very important so never ignore the events that happened in the past one year. We also advise candidates to read the India Year Book, which is published by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, that provide all the good information about the government's schemes, programmes and plans.

Revise Effectively & Efficiently

The revision is the important part of the preparation, specifically for the objective-type exam. A lot of practise is required for the section such as reasoning and quantitative aptitude. Though the weightage of the quantitative aptitude is less, one should not ignore this or the English section because there is an individual cut-off for every section.
