Overall the level of the exam was easy to moderate. Regular giving of mocks would have ensured candidates easily solved the questions. The general awareness section which most of the aspirants fear due to the broad coverage turned out to be easy, a cakewalk for beepedia users. Paper 2 too was easy to moderate, again a duck soup for IXAMBEE subscribers.

So, What Next?

The PFRDA Grade A 2022 mains exam is going to be held on 4th December 2022. Given the fact that there is hardly less than a month’s time for the main exam, we should gear up our preparations rather than expecting the phase 1 results. In order to ensure good marks in the main examination, paper 2 subjects need to be holistically covered with regular practice of descriptive writing. Not only will the practice be sufficient, but evaluation of your answers too is also important. So, you can enroll in any of the online platforms and start writing essays, formal business letters, and precise writing on a daily basis to develop a command as these topics are often neglected by aspirants.

Out of 50 questions on paper 2, 43 are covered in our Ixambee content, which sets a benchmark of the content we provide to prepare students 50% faster.
