Stick to your Exam Strategy
If you’ve worked on it previously, do not stray away from it just for a few more marks. You need to focus on your strengths and manage to maximum your accuracy rather than attempts. Getting Correct Answers will definitely help in boosting confidence.
Inspect and Solve
Do not start solving a Question you think will be unsolvable or lengthy. Attempt only those Questions first that will be solvable within 1 minute. Remember, each question carries the same amount of marks within a section.
Guesswork is a Big NO-NO
Each mark matters in an examination as big as RBI Grade B. Instead of wasting time in unfruitful guesses, dedicate the remainder of the exam time towards revisiting old questions you are doubtful about.
Accuracy and Time Management
This is what the examination is all about – Accurate Attempts and Optimal Time Management. Attempting questions more than your understanding and ability might cost you a seat in the new phase. Hence, focus your energy towards doing best with the time you have.
We wish you All the Best for the upcoming examination and hope to see you right after the paper when we publish a detailed exam analysis of the written paper.
