  9. Hello,
    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?

    • 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 ?
