  1. The duration for Bachelor’s degree is not mentioned. Is there a requirement for bachelor’s degree of some minimum duration? If someone has 1-year bachelor’s degree, can they apply?

    • Hi Priyanka

      The recent notifications clearly specifies that you need 60%+ aggregate in ssc, hsc and graduation. Based on the data you provided you are not eligible for RBI grade B examination.

    • RBI has specified clearly that you cannot apply if you have less than 60% in all the three hsc, ssc and graduation. IF you got more in 10th and 12th it will not compensate for the less marks in graduation. I hope this answers your query
