  1. Respected Mrunal sir,

    Sorry to interrupt in between this conversation . But the matter is associated to my future .

    I had always dreamt to be a railway engineer and now WHEN i had done my B.Tech. from computer science and the notification for rectt. has also come.

    But i don’t know from where to start the preparation .

    Sir , Please provide the examination strategy to follow to crack this section engineer railway recruitment board exam and also tell which books to prefer.


    THANKING YOU : ..)

    1. Rajan I don’t have much idea on railway engineers’ exam. Suggestions:
      1. get old papers, observe pattern, prepare accordingly.
      2. find serving officers via facebook, seek their advice.

    2. sir ..i need ur help..in the form of railway there is no option for btech from cs ..it is having btech from IT..shld i apply from IT?

      1. Dear Ankita…IT nd CS are considered as same for d different performas under d Govt initiatives such as d Railways nd PSUs…

        I hav also gone through d enng from CS stream nd everytime u hv to consider it as IT only(if separately CS not given)..

  2. Gk was mostly factual
    3 cabinet minister
    Somalia capital
    Penalty on dlf
    1 governor
    Us vice president
    3 question on budget
    Euro central bank head
    Eprom full form

    2 books
    Padam vibhushan 2014 in science

  3. Reasoning was very easy
    5 question each on sitting arrangement puzzels(bike and days), syllogism, inequality, data sufficiency, alphabate-symbol-numbers arrangement,
    I did 34 questions

  4. reasoning:

    sitting arrangement -easy 4 to 5 question
    data sufficiency:easy 5 question..,like sitting arrangement,
    no cat is dog,,,some tiger are cat easy 5 question,


    comprehension question on meaning opposite easy,
    sentence error finding,
    in paragraph find bold letters words which are wrong in spelling or the word not needed,
    fill in the blanks in paragraph,


    compound interest,simple interest,simplify the expression,time work,

    current affair:

    growth in railways user,
    rural development minster,
    port louis whose capital,
    what min percent of share is required for a company to call as fdi,
    in which state IIm is there,

  5. exam was on 23sept2014 at 1.15pm at titiksha public school,rohini,delhi..do reach on time & always carry multiple photographs,gluestick & photocopy/original ID card..they were not accepting College/university ID card as valid Identity proof though it is mentioned as acceptable in call-letter..representative from RBI was unfriendly in this matter but luckily i was carrying Driving License also,so i was in no mood to fight & upset my own mood & performance..some others had issues with respect to photocopy but fortunately there was a stationery shop next door (though that shop-pwner was overcharging 3rs per copy…lol…crony capitalists…there was a question about what is crony capitalism too..haha)…my mouse wasn’t working as it was having a time-lag in click & selection..gratefully, the school staff duly changed it in time..anyway,coming to the exam questions..Those who are good at English & GK & Computer, but are slow in Maths & Reasoning should focus on Practicing & getting well-versed with the relevant formulae..Else, you will not be able to clear the cut-off for these sections & hence, will have to wait for subsequent job openings in the next year, if any..keeping up-to-date with Gk/Banking Awareness isn’t tough if you read Business Standard regularly..there were few budget related questions wherein %age allocation for a particular sector..other Fiscal Policy related questions were anyway in news such as CSR spending by firms..A question was there like “what do we call writing a particular programming language”for which answer was coding though one of the options was programming too..so,keep your basics strong in computer section..on a completing note,RBI has a decent brand value and being an assistant there is also a “thik-thaak” thing to look forward to..hence, competition is tough & amount of hard-work you would put in to get this job is quite rational & prudent..so go ahead and crack this silly nut..

  6. One question, unprecedentedly was wrong.. In 5 IIMs question.. there was no option of Maharashtra, I was shocked after seeing the options as I had diligently mugged the important figures and points in the Budget.. The options were Goa, Chattisgarh, Kerala and Karnataka.

    4) data sufficency- i think 2 or three questions were asked..
    this section could be easily completed in 30 mins attempting all 40… though i attempted 38/40 no higher reasoning questions not even 1..

    QUESTIONS FROM ratio and proportion, simple interest, partnership, profit loss , average, percentage… all direct formulae based not need to apply brain if formulae learnt or maths is practiced sufficiently… data table was there for DI… series question(STRICT NO NO) PLEASE FRIENDS DO NOT WASTE TIME EVEN IF U HAVE PRACTICED series this kills time… simple add and subract.. multiple..

    Coal blocks licences allocated from which year has been suspended by Apex court?
    Who is David Cameroon?

    These are the questions which I exactly recalled…….rest, what i remember that this year questions are also being asked related to static gk I.e. history, geography, polity,culture, general science, technology, at least one- two questions from every field. In the recent bank exams (Sbi po, rbi grade-b, Bob, sidbi etc.) I have seen that the trend to ask only banking related questions have been fallen drastically now one would be able to score good in GA only when he/she has complete preparation(without leaving any topic). With special attention to budget and past 4-5 months current affairs related to every field and this could be achieved only by continuous reading of mrunal sir articles and one healthy newspaper.
    Thank you mrunal sir for your guidance with that I attempted 146 queations overall. 33 questions in GA with confidance. Except few mistakes in questions related to films n awards.

    1. But these all are very easy.

  27. i attempted 179 questions in total( ga 30, maths 29, english/reasoning/computer 40 each). was that enough ? please tell about cut off

    1. As mrunal sir said earlier “it is not possible to guess cut-off of any examination without a extremely large sample of reliable data” and even if mrunal sir get it any how then he will not be able to guide us in our preparation furthermore because he will be busy in doing calculations to arrive at a expected cutoff. so please be serious and prepare for next exam without wasting your time on guessing cutoff.
