The banking sector is proliferating by leaps and bounds. It is opening up windows of opportunities for young minds from all fields of academia. One of the most prestigious placements one can get is at RBI. Being the epitome of the banking system in India it focuses on extracting only the cream of the crop. Out of an average 2 lakh that sit for the initial round only a little about one hundred get through the final round. So this bank exam preparation is a humungous task.
Given that the Phase-I of the exams is scheduled to be held on June 17th 2017, here are a few last minute tips to help you ace it.
Here are three things to keep in mind in order to do well in Phase-I
Your command over the English language remains a priority according to your employers. In the rush of exams it’s not uncommon to skip articles or misplace a preposition. But even something like this which is seemingly miniscule could sound a death knell to your dreams of being an RBI employee. So make sure that all your sentences have the correct alignment and devoid of grammatical and spelling related errors. Another important aspect is the use of punctuation marks. Learn the proper usage of colons and semi colons and avoid over-usage of commas.
Rationality rules them all
As you must have been taught in your bank coaching classes, it is imperative that you have a sound mind with which you will draw logical conclusions. Don’t let the tense monitored environment of the examination hall get to you. If the answer seems to be too convoluted, you are probably not on the right path. Instead of fretting too much and wasting time, take a step back and start from the very beginning. If it still doesn’t work out, move on to the other sections of the question paper.
Brush up on your General Knowledge
Going through newspapers and magazines is a must to stay updated on the current affairs. But at the last minute you should also look into solved papers from previous years to know the exact pattern of questions and learn in which areas you must focus your priorities.
