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

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

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?


  • 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
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.


(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.


  • 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?


  • 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)

  1. respected sir,
    G.N. Bajpai committee Recommendation

    The pension regulator on the basis of the recommendation of the G.N. Bajpai committee constituted by PFRDA to review NPS, fixed the incentive at 0.25% of the subscription amount. The committee had suggested 0.50% of the investment, subject to a minimum of Rs 20 and maximum of Rs 50000. As per PFRDA’s measures announceds, a distributor will get a flat Rs 100 on initial subscription and 0.25% of the initial subscription amount. Every year on subsequent investments, the point of presence will be entitled to 0.25% of that amount.
    IN THAT PARAGRAPH, for bank exams,which points are needed is number terms or about the use of commity sir.

    1. From exam point of view, the whole issue is:
      NPS is not getting enough customers.
      One of the many reasons is because salesmen (those insurance/policy agents etc.) don’t get enough commission.
      So they Usually suggest customers to invest money in other pension/retirement schemes run by private companies, because private cos. offer more Commission to the salesmen.
      G.N. Bajpai committee was constituted by PFRDA to review NPS.
      It has given recommendations on how much commission to pay to the policy seller/agents. No need to mugup exact Commission rates.

  2. respected sir,already you told that to economy affairs no need to remember the numbers value,i cannot understand clearly,so can you explain?

  3. is india 2013 available in market???

  4. Hello dear friends,
    Me Nimesh Gupta interacting with with all of you once again. After my post dated:06.12.2012, I got many phone calls and mails on my mail id ([email protected])from various states of INDIA. Aspirants were craving & much craving to know about the job nature of CAG in India, & about salary status as well. I would like to tell that its a good and reputed job of Govt. sector. Now I will just talk on a matter which is worth of my use as well(for all of you guys also). I am all looking ahead for RBI grade B. In this regard my dear friends, I would like to appeal all the aspirants, who are preparing for RBI grade B, lets make a panel (vignesh u r listening me na? vandana u too?) or group of all RBI aspirants separetely, so that whatever, RBI specific information, we get from various sources, viz. study materials, previous years question papers,and other precious items & articles (relating to RBI), can share with onanother. That can really be much helpful for us for our future and shaping it in a good form.
    So my dear friends break the ice, don’t hesitate, be frank and share the things (carrear specific things, not anything personal),which can make possible to meet all of us in RBI campus altogether. so Lets initiate from today why to wait till tommorrow. “PHIR KYA PATA KAL HO NA HO”.
