      • Aryman

        I don’t think coaching is indispensable. I would rather suggest self study which helped me a lot. I cracked this exam with a serious study of merely 22 days. Make proper use of internet facility and examine the trend of exam before diving straight into preparation.

        • http://www.rajmanglam.com raj

          Good luck, very inspiring..

  • Kushagra

    They have mentioned that the exam is open for freshers and people with work ex.
    what are the chances of a fresher to become a b grade officer in Rbi.
    have you personally come across any fresher who is placed in this post in the previous recruitment processes??
    although i have applied for the exam,this aspect creates an impedance in my efforts for the preaperation.i feel like,even if i get good marks in Phase I and II,they will take job ex guys only.
    what are your honest opinions in this matter?

    • http://www.rajmanglam.com raj

      I let you know, every one has to pass the written exam…the previous recruitment shows that there are good percentage of Freshers…

  • Shweta

    Thanks for the informative post. I completed my graduation in 2009 but was interested in writing so got into advertising field. However, I want to appear for this exam due to the prestige and benefits it boasts of. But coming from a non-commercial or non-management background, is it possible to crack through level and level two papers? My general awareness about the socio-economic topics is very limited. Can you recommend something to improvise in that field?

    • http://www.rajmanglam.com raj

      Dedication and Motivation is important in passing any exam, If you go through the profile of RBI Officers in Grade B , you will be amazed to see that 90% are just graduate…The level of exam is not very tough, only you need to prepare and practice well. If i give RBI paper to class Xth or XIIth boy to solve, he/she may be able to solve it. It is time which differentiate ?

      • Shweta

        Can you tell me about the training centers and period of training for selected candidates?
