Friends, here is the review of Today's (24-08-2013) RBI Grade B Officers Exam shared by our fried Jisha G Nair from Kerala. We thank her for her commendable work and we wish her great success in her exam. Read her review in her own words.

Hi friends,
I am one of the candidates who appeared for RBI Officers Grade-B Exam. The reporting time for morning session is 9.15am.But it is written that you have to report earlier. So, the actual reporting time is 8.30am.I reached the venue by 8 am. But, the exam started by 10 am only. The total time allocated is 130 minutes. Read the instructions carefully before entering into the exam hall. Now, about the exam, it was quite easy if you are prepared for an exam like SBI PO.

General Awareness
There were 80 questions.Only 5-10 were from current affairs, that too were simple like
1.Who is the governor of RBI ?
2.Who is the finance secretary ?
3.Who has won women’s singles of Roger’s cup tennis ?
Rest all were ECONOMICS(as expected by a serious player).You must be strong in economics. Otherwise,you will get confused even if you read(2-3 times(Be careful about the time)).A candidate with a strong(or we can say just fine) economic base will easily sail through this section. There were questions from Union Budget(how much money for this & that…etc) .The about various accounts offered by bank etc..etc.

It was easy, except that comprehension passage is also from economics  :D…Synonyms and antonyms, you have to find for words from passage itself. There will be a bit problem, for question like obtaining conclusion from given passage. There were no high level grammar…or anything like that. Even an 8th standard student will do.

Quantitative Aptitude
DI questions were so simple except that you have to look carefully on the chart/graph given.It just involves taking value from chart/graph and subtracting or adding or finding average or percentage. So don’t skip this section.Another thing is that,they asked Radar Graph and chart in DI. Here I am giving an image(from internet) of radar graph,as some of you may not be familiar with it.

 There were just simplification questions(long ones,but you don’t need to calculate the actual value).Also there were questions from ratio & proportion, number series(quite simple,for eg.adding 17.60 with each no. but at a first look we will not even get a link between the numbers in the series,at last I just subtracted…:D….and all number series were like that only…:P),probability,time  and distance,problems on ages(high level) etc.Any one who prepared for IBPS can easily do those questions,but speed matters.
It was actually higher level reasoning except syllogisms (there were more than 5,but not 10,simple syllogism(3 statement) questions were there).Topics were input-output(as usual, not so difficult), assumptions, cause & effect,arguments,inference,blood relations,seating arrangement,inequalities, coding-decoding etc…all of higher level SBI PO level preparation  is required.

Paper was good for one who is prepared for SBI level exam and have a good grip of economics...All the best !
