How do I clear RBI Grade B exam in 6 months?

If you start RBI Grade B preparation in December, you are expected to have atleast 6 months till may 2018. Anything above that would be a bonus.

This answer covers next 3 months. I am not covering complete 6 months because it is always better to plan for near future and not the entire run of study.

The strategy of study should be to cover phase 2 right now in the next 2 months and then to move towards phase 1 for the next 1 month.

Teja BM

Former Assistant at Reserve Bank of India (2015)

I want to thank Anuj Jindal a lot for his courses. Myself being from technical background have absolutely no idea about either economics or finance. I learnt a lot from his videos. I already read 9th and 10th class NCERTs for basic concepts, however when I started reading 11th Class NCERT and also started watching Anuj’s videos, I got a lot of conceptual clarity from his videos.

He organised the content in a logical manner and also covered the concepts comprehensively and sufficiently in depth.

So, I highly recommend my fellow aspirants to subscribe to his courses so that they too could get benefited if they feel they didn’t understood economics or finance.

Note: I’m in no way associated with Anuj Jindal apart from being his student and I wanted him and students to get benefited. I’m voluntarily endorsing his course.

Shilpa Dahiya

Former Assistant at Reserve Bank of India (2015)

​I don’t have much idea about ¿¿¿¿¿¿ course but i had subscribed to Anuj Jindal’s course. Not only the material is good, but also he also gives personal attention in case of any problem. He gives proper schedule as and when which notes he will deliver, which maintains a sort of discipline specially for employed aspirants to finish the earlier notes before receiving the new ones.
