5 Strategies To Score More Than 75% in RBI Grade B

Tips To Reduce Negative Marking in RBI Grade B Exam

  1. No Random Guessing

Don’t attempt any question that is completely foreign to you, just leave it. You must answer only those questions that you are certain otherwise it may cause negative marking. Never guess blindly as it will decrease your marks. Attempt only those questions for which you are sure with a response.

  1. Secure Easy Questions First

As soon as the paper is live, scan the questions quickly. Begin with easier questions first because these questions can be solved quickly and will spare enough time for you to solve lengthy questions. This will help you build your confidence.

If you answer questions in the sequence followed, you will waste a lot of time on tough questions and will be left with very little or no time to answer the ones which you were well familiar with. So follow the planned strategy of answering easy ones first.

  1. Calculated Risks, certainly conceivable!

Try to be sure about your answer, and don’t be tempted to answer maximum number of questions. Try responding to first the questions that you are assured of being correct. Take calculated risk only when necessary. By calculated risks we mean, the times in which you can eliminate one, two or even three options. This increases the probability of getting the correct answer from 33% to 50%.
Have a rough idea about what cut-off is expected in the exam. This will better prepare you for what should be an ideal attempt to clear the exam. Once you attempt that many questions, you can avoid guessing. Having no idea about what should be the desired attempt, you don’t know where to stop.

  1. Read Questions Thoroughly

It is very important that you must scan your whole question paper carefully before answering. Go through the questions carefully and answer them only if you are sure. If you have any doubt, then move on to next question and come back it at the end after completing them
