The cut-off is increasing year by year in IBPS RRB. So, target high scores and don't guess randomly as there will be negative marking for each question of 0.25 marks.

The Prelims Exam is comparatively easier in IBPS RRB Exam, so if you practice well with the short tricks and formulas, you can easily score in this exam.

For Mains, you should have adequate skill & knowledge for the Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, English, General Awareness (Most Importantly Banking Current Affairs) & Computer Knowledge (in some cases).
