Reserve bank of India 2011

RBI Grade “B” officer’s exam, follows the same “structure” of UPSC Civil service exam.

This RBI exam has three phases

  1. Phase I (Objective Type Test)= Preliminary stage (Multi choice questions)
  2. Phase II Descriptive Exam (we already discussed this in old article, CLICK ME)
  3. Phase III Interview.

I’m extremely grateful to my trusted friend from pagalguy forum “csl80”, for providing me the paper of 2011’s exam and all other background information on this exam.

This whole strategy / studyplan is based on that.

RBI Grade B Officer Preliminary exam: structure

  • No of questions= 200
  • Sectional Passing marks = yes. (just like bank exam. It means Candidates have to secure minimum marks separately for each section.)
  • Negative marking = yes (minus 1/4th of the marks allotted to a question)

According to RBI’s pattern in 2011’s exam, here is the breakup

TopicNo. of QsMarksTime
General Awareness808045mins
Math303020mins
English303020mins
Reasoning606045mins
Total200200

UPDATE (August-05-2013): As per the RBI Handout for 2013’s Prelim: there is sectional cutoff but no sectional timing. They’ll give 200 questions to you at once, and you can solve them in any order within 130 minutes

Section #1: General Awareness (GA)

Let us look at the topic wise breakup of General Awareness, in 2011’s RBI preliminary exam.

TopicNo. of Questions in 2011’s Exam
Economy56
Yearbook13
Diplomacy7
Geography3
Science1
Total80

You can find the actual questions in the appendix below. Even 2010’s exam had more or less the same breakup: heavy emphasis on Economy and Yearbook type of questions. So now let us see how to approach each of above topics.

How to prepare Economy for RBI exam?

As you look in the last paper, you’ll see some questions are based on “static (theory) portion and rest are based on “dynamic (current affairs). I’ve given the reading list accordingly.

There are mainly 5 type of questions that can be asked in economy related MCQs.

  1. You’re given a term and four definitions. You’ve to find the correct definition. (or vice versa)
  2. You’re given a 4-5 organizations and their functions, and you’ve to “match the following”.
  3. Name of some person and which organization he’s related with. (or vice versa)
  4. Name of some Government policy/ Act is given, and some statements are given. You’ve to find the correct statements associated with that policy/act.
  5. Trivial: “Absolute dates and numbers”. For example How much money did Government allot in xyz fund sector? Or what was the repo rate in xyz month? or In which year NABARD was established?

Problem:

  • Students devote all their energy in mastering 5th type of questions. But you’ve to bow down to the fact that there can be no end to trivial question. What if you prepared NABARD’s establishment year but they asked about LIC’s year? So the Cost:Benefit ratio is not good.
  • Therefore Donot get obsessed with trival facts. Because no war is won without sacrificing a few soldiers. And Nobody expects you to score 100/100 marks – whether it is UPSC, RBI or CAT.

Now here is the reading list/ suggested books.

How to prepare Static Economy (theory)?

  1. NCERT economics: can be downloaded for free by clicking me
  1. NIOS (National Open School) study material for Economy (can be downloaded for free by clicking ME
  2. Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh (TMH Publication)
  3. For practice-Mock questions given at the end of General studies (GS) manual.

^this is more than sufficient.
BOOK-ramesh singh 5th

  • Don’t try to get in minute details (for example many topics in NCERT Class 12 Micro economic.)
  • As I keep saying, no point in wasting time in Mishra Puri, Dutt Sundaram, Uma Kapila etc. books they’re written from academic point of view = not very helpful in competitive exam, time is luxery we don’t have.

Once this is done, use the General Studies manual, and solve all the mock questions given at the end of its Economy chapter.

  • If you have one, then well and good.
  • If you don’t have one, then borrow from some friend or visit Government library. There is absoutely no need to specially buy a GS manual for RBI exam.

How to prepare Dynamic Economy (Current Affairs)?

Prepare highlights of budget 2013 + Economic Survey (lot of content already covered in Mrunal.org/economy
Any one magazine

  • I assume you’re in the ‘competition business’ since many months. So you’d have a good collection of current affairs magazines @home. Whether it is CST or Pratiyogita Darpan, Chronicle or Wizard doesn’t matter. Just go through its monthly Economy portion.
  • Following are the Priority areas in a magazine in descending order of their importance.
    1. Economy
    2. International
    3. National
    4. Science tech
    5. Persons in News
  • If you don’t have magazine, no worries, go to Government library of your city, all of these magazines will be available. You don’t have to read all of them, just pick any one and go through it.
  • You can also visit Competitionmaster.com (he gives monthly current affairs)
  • You can also read Pratiyogita Darpan online for free: http://pdeng.pdgroup.in/Index.aspx
  • Question: which magazine to refer? If your sole aim is IAS exam then go for Civil Services Times.
  • But if you’re simultaneously preparing for IAS+State PSC+Bank/RBI/SSC type of exams= go for Pratiyogita Darpan. Because he also provides papers for those exams.

Any one newspaper: The Hindu or Indian Express

How to read newspaper = already explained in following article
http://mrunal.org/2012/06/current-affairs-ias.html
You must remember that if you qualify in preliminary exam, you’ll have to face the descriptive papers (phase II). And hence, newspaper reading = essential.
And finally the main villain: Mrunal.com/economy

How to prepare Yearbook

  • As you saw in the table, 13 questions came from Yearbook.
  • By the word “Yearbook”, I mean Government schemes, social Development etc. (boring) stuff.
  • There is again no need to buy the book specifically for RBI exam because, I’ve already covered most of the important stuff related to Government schemes, projects etc from the India yearbook in my summary artiles on Economic Survey (freely available on Mrunal.org/economy).
  • Please keep in mind “yearbook” doesn’t mean only the stuff given in that book. They can ask something from those topics, from current affairs. So do read the newspapers, do go through the current affairs magazine.

How to prepare International Affairs

  1. Any one magazine AND OR Competitionmaster.com
  2. Any one newspaper: The Hindu or Indian Express
  3. mrunal.org/diplomacy

How to prepare everything else!

  • I mean to say the “miscellaneous topics” for RBI exam (seeing last two years’ papers): history, polity, geography, science = these are all non-important miscellaneous topics.
  • But still it’d be mistake to go completely blank on other topics. What if some really easy 3-4 questions come?
  • Therefore I suggest you go through Lucent’s General Knowledge book.

With this I conclude how to prepare the General Awareness (GA) portion of RBI Grade “B” officers’ exam.
Now let us move to the aptitude part.

Aptitude

(I put Maths, logical reasoning and English  – all three into aptitude)

Section #2: Quantitative Aptitude (QA)

The maths is more oriented towards data interpretation rather than conventional profit-loss type stuff. Go through the old papers (posted at bottom), and prepare topics accordingly. And to clear the basic concepts of maths, you may use the approach shown in the RBI Assistant exam article click me

  • Many articles on mrunal.org/aptitude
  • Practice old Bank PO question papers (can be googled).
  • ignore trigonometry, geometry (other than area volume perimeter), coordinate geometry and logerithms.

Priority areas in Quantitative aptitude (QA)

  1. Operation on brackets
  2. Linear equations
  3. Average + alligiation
  4. Ratios
  5. Profit, Loss, %, SI and CI : all can be solved if you’ve clear concept of % calculation.
  6. Arithmetic and Geography progression.
  7. TSDW (Time speed distance and Work): all can be solved using the “STD” table,  if you go through my old articles on Mrunal.org/aptitude
  8. Permutation, Combination, Probability : all can be solved without problem, if you go through my old articles.
  9. Geometry: Area and Volume
  10. Venn Diagrams

Non priority areas in QA

  1. Geometry: things other than Area, Volume, Perimeter
  2. Coordinate Geometry
  3. Logerithms
  4. Trigonometry
  5. Functions and graphs.

^these topics are important for SSC exam but not much for RBI

Data Interpretation (DI)

In this QA (maths) portion, they also asked Data interpretation (DI) questions worth 15 marks, in 2011. There is hardly any theory in DI, all you’ve to do is –practice. Speed (quick calculation) is extremely important here, otherwise you might end up wasting 20+ minutes in doing barely 5 sums of DI.
Basically DI requires speed in Addition and % calculation and lot of practice from old Bank/IBPS papers.

How to get speed for maths calculations?

  1. Understand this two-digit long division technique explained here click me
  2. Understand the Trachtenberg’s method for multiplication, especially for 5,9 and 11. plenty of articles on google, start with this one: click me
  3. Then practice maximum questions from previous years’ IBPS/Bank papers.

(There is no harm in learning Vedic maths techniques either but I find Trachtenberg’s speed maths more user-friendly and convenient than Vedic maths.)

Section #3: English Grammar and Comprehension

RBI Grade B english Cutoff
30 questions came from English portion in RBI 2011 exam.

Priority Areas of English Section

Reading comprehension

There are no secret tricks. Just one word: Practice.
Now where to find practice? Plenty of resources, if only you look for them

  1. Pagalguy forum has dedicated threads for it.
  2. Just google “GMAT reading comprehension” or CAT reading comprehension you’ll come across plenty of sites providing mock questions.
  3. You can also use previous years’ papers of UPSC, IBPS, Bank PO to practice.

Sentence arrangement/ Correction, Fill in the blanks etc.

Vocabulary

  • will helps indirectly in the fill in the blanks + comprehension.
  • In short, overall approach would be more or less the same as given in earlier “How to prepare English for APFC” article Click ME

Section #4: Logical Reasoning


If you donot practice enough at home, the Logical reasoning questions can be “Sitters” (i.e. you waste lot of time trying to figure out blood relation and sitting arrangement etc)

How to approach LR?

verbal

  • Solve the sums given in this book: Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning by Dr. R S Aggarwal
  • Problem: the book has about 600 pages and you don’t have that much time.
  • Well atleast do 10-10 questions from each variety. + ignore the “non-verbal” portion because it is not that important for RBI (although important for IBPS).

Priority areas for Logical reasoning

Following topics are important, because usually atleast 4 questions come from each of these.

  • Blood relations. (generally a “case/parapgrah” followed by 5 questions)
  • Sitting Arrangement . (generally a “case/parapgrah” followed by 5 questions)
  • Coding –decoding
  • Input output
  • Inequality (x>y and y<z …)
  • Data sufficiency
  • Number series- find the next number.
  • Assumption and inferences
  • All cats are dogs. Syllogism (technique also explained in Mrunal.org/aptitude)

To sum up

  1. For General awareness: Revision important.
  1. Priority areas = Economy + Yearbook
  • For aptitude: Practice important.
  • Priority  areas (already given above)

    Hi friends stop worrying about notification dates and wasting your precious time. No one here really knows about the dates. So just keep studying and fill up the form whenever it comes. Google it once a week that’s the best way rather than asking anyone over here.

  40. reena

    no rbi grade b vacancy for next two years!! I prepared already too hard for it.

  41. SHashank

    @reema and how come you came to know that….??
    Plz dont spread rumour’s !!!
    No one knows when RBI GRADE B vacancy will come barring GOVERNOR/DEPUTY GOV.!!

    Spend your time constructively….!!!

    1. reena

      Governer and Deputy Govermer don’t take active participation for recrudescent, its taken care by separate division headed by CGM.. and I am not spreading rumours. My batch mates at rbi who are grade B had interaction with CGM HR there, who said that they have enough grade B for forthcoming year and they have already recruited from campus also!! If, what I got to know is rumour only then I will be very happy. No intention to tense anyway…for me also it was a good back up option while preparing for CIVILS.

      1. reena

        sorry its recruitment not recrudescent!! sometime I hate autocorrect:p

      2. SHashank

        Ok,so its your GRADE B batchmates who are spreading rumours !! 😛
        plz dont pay attention to what they are saying..There can be “N” no. of reasons for the same..!!
        Trust me on this,CGM HR never discusses anything,starting with “”R””,with grade B officers !!
        Secondly,Campus recr. have no relation to whether or not DIRECT recr. will take place or NOt !!

        All the best !! 🙂
