Request: share your exam experience

RBI Grade B officer (Preliminary) exam was held on August 3, 2014 (Sunday) in two sessions. But since this exam is to be conducted online=>difficult for next years’ aspirant to find “previous question” papers. Therefore, I request all the readers, to share following data AFTER exam is over, in the comments below.

  1. What was the Span of current affairs latest and oldest topic asked in General Awareness?
  2. How much PIN (persons in news?) by the way, PIN-2014 series has been uploaded long time back. in case you missed, go to http://mrunal.org/current#pin
  3. General idea on “topicwise breakup” – in general awareness. How much economy (budget related), how much banking sector related and so on. Did they ask computer awareness in it?
  4. How tough was English section compared to SBI PO and CSAT?
  5. How tough / lengthy was Maths/DI section compared to other exams. Did they ask chillar questions like profit loss, or was it entirely focused on lengthy data interpretation as in SBI PO? what was the overall breakup?
  6. Reasoning section: did they ask high level reasoning like syllogism, assertion-reasoning, course of action etc?
  7. Other observations about pattern, trend, wisdom, tips for future aspirants.

  1. @ Anagha
    Since 2011 , it comes every year. Following that trend , there will be exam next year .
    Don’t believe in circulated news. Give your best effort . Smarter effort . Will be rewarded for sure. Wishes.

  2. GA – Since the exam is online , be best prepared with current affairs content for last 4 months and till at least 7 days before the exam .
    Learn banking related., i again stress banking related terms and RBI related terms well . Be well versed in it. RBI Website and INDIAN ECONOMY by RAMESH SINGH and MRUNAL Content will suffice

    RA
    Solve many tough puzzles . I would suggest you register either with any of online exam practice sites such as BSC onlinetest / any other renowned web site . Use MK Pandey and MRUNAL.

    Eng
    Simply solve all previous question papers from BSC book and use english in magazines also.

    QA
    Learn Data Interpretation and number series very well to the core. That we cant guess questions, it was easy last time and hard this time. Practice other concepts in BSC / Kiran / Rajesh Verma / Mrunal Contents.

    Do a lot of mock tests at home with RBI specified time limit. Ensure you have timer switched on. Do as many as 20 mock tests in QA+Eng+RA combined everytime. Split time as eg:(QA – 40 min , Eng – 20 , RA – 45)like wise.

    – – A best possible effort of two/three weeks provided u do reasoning well to an extent will give selection–

    1. Thanks for your advice and efforts you have put in.

  3. CAN ANYBODY TELL ME THE INTERVIEW CUTOFF’S (PHASE 2 CUTOFF’S) IN THE PREVIOUS YEARS….SO THAT WE CAN GUIDE OUR PREPARATIONS ACCORDINGLY .
    ALSO REQUEST MRUNAL SIR TO PUT PHASE 2 STRATEGY BECOS PREVIOUS YEARS ARTICLE IS IN A HAPHAZARD MANNER TO CLEAR ENOUGH, THAT TOO FOCUSSING ON MANAGEMNT SECTION ONLY.

  4. I had a knack of solving Quant,Reasoning and English section 3 yrs ago.Always thought GA was my weakness, After a brief hiatus of MBA, tried RBI this time. Had toiled days & nights for GA section. But worst of it happened in the exam. Can’t believe Quant got me out this season.. Not Through.. Overconfidence sucks big time!
    Thanks Mrunal anyways.. You’re a gift to the poor wandering souls like me.

  9. Dear all,

    Please don’t post the questions you faced in any blog after your exam is done, as the will be facing the same questions. As you are going to help your competitors in an ILLEGAL way.Mrunal,please don’t keep a post like what u did for this year RBI prelims.

    1. the questions are never the same … any govt or bank exam … guarantee … relax

      1. my friend and I got same questions he wrote in the afternoon.Anyways its upto you to decide whats wrong or right and get rid of these good samaritan views of helping others in exam,it will increase the cut-off andmay be I have to mention I got 109 marks to avoid getting branded as a cry baby.

  10. Cyano illegal toh yahan sab kuch hi hai India mein(seat kharide n beche jate hai)…so chill…atleast ppl r being helped…anyways der vl b books on dis so..

  11. GENERAL AWARENESS 40
    ENGLI SH 19
    QUANTITATIVE APTITUD E 8
    REASONI NG 14
    TOTALS CORE 81 cat:GEN
    even if I am reserved candidate, i would have not be able crack it

  12. @ Cyano
    I understand your troubles . At the same time , sharing questions and strategies will surely be of helping hands to n number of people who lack proper access to coaching or to buy books . I’m not justifying the cause ., I have seen many of my friends who leave their aspirations due to lack of proper preparation due to lack of money .
    Sites like this MRUNAL.ORG have definitely rendered helping hands to all of us and Mrunal often points that no need to buy book if not possible and can goto govt library. That approach is important.
    Last , these sharing of questions will just make you focus in righteous direction and it has only too little impact on result. Result depends on how u perform QA and RA at the exam hall. For those who perform better , they may get selected.

  13. DONT GO FOR SBI PO……..JOB SUCKS….IRRITATING ANNOYING …NO LEAVE…NO PERSONAL LIFE NO FAMILY LIFE..

    1. Hi Piyush r u working as PO in SBI? Why do u think the job sucks?

    2. Hi Piyush, please tell me more about it.
      I have cleared it, and plan to join and prepare for civils side-by-side.
      What kind of workload should I expect?

      Thanks! :)
