Every bank exam including the RBI Assistant Mains is about time management and accuracy. Candidates who have practiced well by solving mock tests and model papers can gain command over these two aspects. While solving the question paper, candidates should allot time to sections where your strength lies. Do not allot more than one minute to any question. If you get stuck in a particular question, skip it and move on to solve the rest of the question paper with accuracy.

Read the Questions Carefully

There is penalty of negative marking of 0.25 marks in the exam for every wrong answer. So, concentrate on marking the most accurate option as your answer in the examination. While focusing on completing the paper on time, candidates tend to make mistakes of choosing the wrong option. Avoid such mistakes by reading the complete questions first carefully and then go on to choose the most appropriate option.

Do not forget to carry your Admit Card, Photograph and ID Proof to Exam Centre
