Important tips to crack RBI Grade B 2021

Here are 4 steps that you can follow to prepare for Grade B examination:

Step 1: Follow a proper time-table

Try to make a time-table considering a few points, such as:

  • Fix timing for study
  • Don’t study more at a stretch
  • Take short breaks in between
  • Give more time for the difficult subjects

 Last but not least, try to follow the timetable as rigorously, because, it’s easy to set a study-plan but difficult to follow.

Step 2: Focus on preparation

Instead of just memorizing the details, try to understand the subject. Prepare your own short notes in the notebook while studying. Reading these notes a few days before the exam will help you revise your subject in short time.

Step 3: Stay positive and confident

Be confident, keep positive thoughts and believe in yourself and your preparation. After a calculated preparation, you won’t have to spend stressful hours or go through last-minute rush.

Step 4: Go for some physical activity and meditation

Physical activity and meditation can sometimes do wonders to your learning abilities. Researches have shown that it can improve your concentration. Spend some of your time with people who talk about positivity and stay away from those who pressurize you during your preparation.

Wishing you very best for your exam preparation or revision!
