RBI Grade B preparation tips

Due to the extensive curriculum and the few places available, the RBI Grade B is one of the most difficult bank exams in India. Annually, the Reserve Bank of India holds the RBI Grade B exam to find qualified candidates in the seniority category.

This appeal attracts large numbers of students to this coveted exam. Aside from working for such a respected company, many hopefuls aspire to live the prestigious and comfortable lifestyle that an RBI official enjoys.

Tip 1

Prepare a schedule in advance to ensure you complete the curriculum well in advance of the exam. When creating the schedule, be sure to give each component enough time. It’s also a good idea to assign specific days to each segment.

Tip # 2

Schedule retakes and mock exams over the weekend while you study for the exam. To start, you must take at least 2-4 simulated tests each week, and 10 days before the exam, you must take one fake test per day.

Tip # 3

Read breaking events daily with a special focus on financial news. On weekends, you can always take small notes in your own style for revision.


Candidates should take a comprehensive approach to preparation that involves completing several assignments in order to pass the exam in one session. Candidates should develop and adhere to an effective preparation plan. However, before starting study for the exam, candidates must have a thorough understanding of the RBI Class B exam pattern and curriculum.
