The pattern is as follows:
Reasoning- 60 marks
English- 30 marks
Quants- 30 marks
General Awareness- 80
Those who are preparing for various banking or insurance exams will not find phase 1 that difficult.
The cut-off for 2015 was 89, and in 2016 it shoots to 99, 78 in 2017 and 106 in 2018. Due to the increase in competition, it is better to assume that next year might be around 110. So it’s better to aim for 115+, seems difficult but not impossible.
Reasoning: Practice is the only way to score well in this section, aim for 35+ in reasoning. Solve mocks on regular basis. No standard textbook is at par. Solve bankersadda daily quizzes regularly
Quants: Work here smartly. You do not need to top in the section.
If you consider quants tough, then just aim for 10+ marks in this section.
DI consist of 10/15 marks, even if you solve this, you will be able to clear the sectional cut-off.
Number series consists of 5 marks, out of which 3 is doable easily.
Rest is miscellaneous like profit loss, average, percentage, speed time distance, trains, boats, etc. Master those topics which you find easy and you will be able to clear the cut-off.
Follow Fast Track Arithmetic by Rajesh Verma or R.S Agarwal for this.
Again regular practice and mocks are needed.
English: First clear your basic grammatical concepts, for that, you can refer Wren and Martin.
Read newspaper editorials on a daily basis as this will help in enriching your vocabulary and also help you understand the passage easily during the exam.
Rest depends on your practice as this section does not require any special knowledge.Continue reading “RBI Grade B Preparation Strategy”
