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 https://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.

  2. @ 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.
