Keep yourself motivated throughout these months of preparation to follow these IBPS RRB Exam Preparation Tips –

Take small breaks whenever you need.

 There will be shortcuts, but they won’t work until and unless you practice them by writing down. You must know the correct time & technique to use these shortcuts effectively.

 Reasoning part is more analytical so try to analyze the questions better.

 As there are hundreds of formulae in Quant Section so make short notes to wrap-up all the shortcut tricks & methods at one place. Use these notes at the time of revision.

 Build your basics strong.

 Solve Previous Years Papers & Learn to use shortcuts efficiently. This will boost up your speed. Since all that matter is the speed to set your place in the IBPS RRB Exam.

 Dedicate 2-3 hours for reading English and Hindi newspapers.

 Don’t skip a single section. In IBPS Recruitment Exams, candidates are judged based on their separate performances in each section.
