Competitive exam mock tests have three main objectives:
• Assessing your level of preparation
• Improving your score
• Learning time management
Please understand that in preparation of RBI Grade B your time invested on the mock test is your most important resource. Look for some important qualities like:
Questions matching with the actual exam
- Sometimes candidates judge a practice test by its difficulty level. But you need to realize that for clearing RBI Grade B exam you need not to practice for UPSC- Civil Services or CAT or GMAT questions. If you want to learn riding motorcycle, you cannot go for practice by learning to drive a car.
With these tests you shall be able to assess your performance for RBI Grade B exam. You shall also be able to learn the types of questions asked in the exam.
Analytics to improve - You don’t need a fancy and complicated analysis that creates more confusion. Rather look for simple and clear cut result analytics to help you in identifying improving your score. Exam analytics helps you in identifying the questions that you shall-
• Attempt first - questions in which your speed and accuracy is great
• Skip - the chapters which are difficult for you and take lot of time
• Improve - the chapters in which you can improve your speed and accuracy by more practice or by learning fundamentals better
Answer explanations - The ultimate aim of attempting mock tests is to improve your learning. Answer explanations help you in learning the short-cut methods in quant and reasoning and making learning better in General Awareness, English, ESI (Economics and Social Issues) and FM (Finance and Management).
Analysing the performance of your mock tests is as important as it is to attempt mock tests for RBI Grade B. If you are not analysing your performance score thoroughly and scientifically you will not be able to improve much by simply doing more practice tests. Follow these rules in evaluating and analysing your performance in the mock tests:
Identify your strong and weak points – Your section-wise score will indicate in which section (Quant, English, General Awareness and Reasoning) you are strong and where you are weak. Compare the score you obtain in English, Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning and General Awareness with you overall score and with the score of topers in these sections. Also compare the per-question time taken by you in solving these questions in different section. Please remember in the exam your most critical resource is time. In sections and chapters where you are taking more time per minute you shall identify the learning strategy to reduce your time.
Speed and Accuracy – A right combination of your speed and accuracy is critical to crack the exam. In addition to the score you need to also see your accuracy level. In the exam there is negative marking, because of which you are penalised for wrong answers. If you score very less number of questions you will not be able to get the cut-off marks and if you do questions very fast your marks are deducted because of the wrong answers. Therefore, the key is to find optimum level - the speed at which you do more questions and do few mistakes. You compare your speed and accuracy across various chapters. For example in Reasoning, you find our whether you are better in solving puzzles, input-output, inequality, coding-decoding, syllogism, or others in RGBI Grade B exam. Your aim is to score more in less time.
Frame your strategy – Once you have analysed the performance data of time taken and accuracy level in questions, you frame a strategy that suits you depending on:
Identifying your stronger areas to score higher on that.
Identifying your improvement areas - the chapters where you can score more by learning fundamental and more practice. In these chapters you will have to work more in coming days to get more score.
Knowing your weak points - These are the questions you need to skip because these may be difficult for you and you waste lot of time solving them or maybe you do lot of mistakes in these types of questions. You know that skipping questions is as important as attempting the right question.
Once you know these methods to improve your performance you need to make more practice of more RBI Grade B mock tests because skills cannot be learned only by knowing theory.
What shall be the approach to attempt mock tests for Phase 1 ad Phase 2 in the RBI Grade B exam?
In phase 1 tests you have to focus on improving your speed and accuracy to score enough to cross the sectional cut-off and overall cut-off. While in Phase 2 you need to score maximum so that you are finally selected, therefore, you shall be focussing on learning by studying the solutions given in the every question in the mock tests. In Finance section you will learn to solve numerical in financial statement analysis, bond valuation, etc. Try to attempt as many questions of Phase 2 so that you cover the syllabus by learning while answering the questions. Time is not a constraint in Phase 2, the knowledge of the subject matters the most. In Phase 1 tests for RBI Grade B, your approach shall be to clear cut-off in Quantitative Aptitude (as the level is tough and it takes time) and score maximum in General Awareness, English and Reasoning as per your strength.
Shall I do one Mock Tests daily?
One to two weeks before the exam you may attempt one mock test daily but before that you shall complete your studies covering the entire syllabus. You shall focus your energy on improving your score by analysing your performance. When you starting the preparation give more time on learning the subject and do more chapter test and section tests. Attempt mock tests on regular basis and increase the frequency of the mock tests as the exam date come closer. For Phase 2 mock tests you need to cover the syllabus of Phase 2 RBI Grade B exam before you attempt mock tests.
