RBI Assistant Prelims exam has been scheduled for February 14th and February 15th 2020. With just one week left for the exam you must be thinking about making the most of this time with practicing and giving mock tests. To crack this exam in the most efficient manner, it is important to take care of some important tips so that you do not succumb at the time of examination. Before looking at those points let’s have a look at the exam pattern which is quite straight forward.
RBI Assistant Prelims Exam Pattern:
|Test Name||Total Questions||Total Marks||Time Duration|
|Numerical Ability||35||35||20 min|
|English Language||30||30||20 min|
Give each section equal importance as each section will contribute
Do not take new topics:
With merely seven days left for the exam, the time that is left is not for learning new topics but to revise and get the command over the covered one. Rather than reading new topics, it is advised to give mocks as much as you can. Try to attempt Mock tests on a daily basis and
Revision is the key:
We are assuming that the entire syllabus must have been completed by now and all that is left is the revision of it. Revision is essential because there is no point in reading or learning anything until and unless you have revised it at least three times. Focus on revision to get a command over your strong points. Make a short note for important formulas of Quantitative Aptitude or some short tricks for Reasoning or English. This will also help you to revise on the day of the exam.
Focus on accuracy:
The examination has a negative marking of 0.25 marks which means for every wrong answer 0.25 marks will be deducted. Keeping this in mind, try to answer only those for which you are very sure about otherwise it is better to skip the question. Marking wrong answers will not only waste your precious time but also decrease your score by deducting marks from correctly answered ones. Do not mark just for the sake of increasing your number of attempted questions.
Make a strategy for attempting the paper:
While attempting mock tests, make a strategy on how you are going to attempt the entire paper. While everyone makes their own strategy, it is advised to attempt your strong section/questions first and then gradually try to solve the rest of the sections/questions. This will boost your confidence and will help in increasing your score. Don’t spend too much time on one question. Try to implicate your tested strategy in the real examination, do not change it at the last minute. Believe in yourself and do not lose your temper while giving the exam.
Keep your documents ready:
You must have prepared religiously for the exam, so make sure to take all the documents required, so that you dont miss the chance to appear in the examination. Keep all your documents ready the night before the examination. Write it somewhere so that you don’t miss out on anything important. For your assistance, following is the list of documents that are required at the examination hall.
- Admit card (call letter of RBI Assistant Prelims exam)
- Valid ID Proof
- Photocopy of Valid ID Proof
- 1 passport size photograph (preferably same as uploaded in the call latter)
At the end, be calm and give your best. Don’t let others preparation strategy affect your performance. We wish you all the best for the exam.
