How to Prepare for IBPS RRB Officers & Office Assistant Online Exams2013

IBPS RRB Officers & Office Assistant Online Exams 2013 are scheduled to held on in September/ October 2013. Officers exam will be conducted first. After that office assistant exam will be conducted. Everybody asking how to prepare IBPS RRB Exams 2013. So, let me explain here. This post is for newcomers.


There 5 sections in IBPS RRB Officers & Office Assistant Written Exam 2013.

1. Reasoning
2. Numerical Ability/ Quantitative Aptitude
3. English Language/ Hindi Language
4. General Awareness
5. Computer Knowledge



There are 40 questions from each section.



1. Reasoning: Questions are related to following topics.


Syllogism: There will be 2 or 3 statements followed by 2 conclusions. You have to take the given statements to be true and then decide which of given conclusions logically follows from given statements.


Data Sufficiency: One question followed by 2 statements will be given. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question.


Coding - Decoding: Some data will be given with its codes. Ex: book is coded as hlt. You have to answer the questions based on the given codes.


Seating Arrangement: Some information will be provided related the seating positions. you have to figure out correct seating arrangement based on given data and answer the questions. If you can prepare the seating arrangement, you can easily answer the question. You have to concentrate more to solve this type of questions.


Greater than, Less than, Equality Relationship: Statements contain the relationship between different elements will be shown. You have to decide whether the Conclusions given follows the relation given in statements


There will be some single items {Please refer previous exam papers to know more)


Statement & Arguments: Statements and arguments will be given. You have to decide which of given arguments are strong and which are weak argument related to the given statement.


Statement & Course of Action: Some situation will be given in statement followed by course of actions. You have to decide which of given course of actions logically follows for pursuing.


Blood Relations: Based on given blood relationships, you to answer the questions.


Non Verbal Reasoning: 4 question figures will be given. You have to decide which among the answer figures follows as 5th figure. Nonverbal questions are discontinued in online exam pattern. Be ready for this also. WE cant predict anything.


To get good marks in IBPS RRB 2013 Online Exam, You have to practice more. Reasoning section is toughest section compare to any other section in my point of view because if you cant concentrate at that point of time, you will loose marks even though you know the procedure to solve that question. So, sleep well before the exam. This is very important to answer reasoning section. Why i am saying this is, i have seen many candidates traveling at night before the exam day. This logic may sound silly for some of you, but it is true. You cant solve questions if don't sleep well. Ok.. Reasoning section is all about Practice & smart thinking in exam hall. For Office Assistant & Officers exam, reasoning questions will be same, but the toughness of the questions will different. Office Assistant questions looks very simple. But the accuracy is important to get top rank. Officers questions will be little difficult. You have to think to solve them. It wont be like IBPS PO exam. It simple compare to that exam.


Reasoning Section = 40 Questions = 50 Marks.

2. Numerical Ability/ Quantitative Aptitude:



Numerical ability for Office Assistant Exam & Quantitative aptitude for Officers. To score good marks in this section, you have to be quick in solving mathematical calculations. First, learn mathematical tables from 2 to 20. Many might have forgot the tables after 12 or 13. So, read them first. Know some shortcuts from your seniors. I have posted some tricks in Quantitative Aptitude section.


Numerical Ability section will have 20 questions based on BODMAS Rule & other 20 questions from Quantitative aptitude questions. Quantitative Aptitude for officers will have 20 Quantitative aptitude and 20 Data Interpretation questions



Data Analysis & Interpretation mainly contains, Pie Charts, Bar Diagrams, Tables, Graphs, Probability & Data Analysis.


Just practice 30 previous PO exam papers to quickly solve questions of Data Analysis & Interpretation.


Numerical Ability/ Quantitative Aptitude = 40 Questions = 50 Marks

3. English Language:



Comprehension Passage, Cloze test, Meanings & Opposite Words, Common Errors, Grammatical Errors, Filling the blanks, Rearranging sentences to form meaning paragraph.



I recommend you to read comprehensions, if you have time at last, because if you are not able to understand in the middle of the passage, your time will be wasted. Set some time for it and follow the same. Many canidates spending too much of time to read passages. If you are also like that, it is better to skip it and answer the Meanings and Opposite words questions just by reading the bold sentence. I strongly recommend you to learn the grammar part. If you are good at grammar, you can answer easily within less amount of time. If you are taking too much of time while practicing for some type of questions, try to find ways to solve in less and learn shortcuts from friends. If there is no way to reduce the time to solve that particular type of question, just leave it. OK..


There will be 20 questions from grammar section. If you can answer at least 15, you will be in safe zone. I recommend all of you to write notes. Collect 30 previous PO exam papers, buy a note book and note down the error in particular sentence. Read all the things that you have wrote before the exam day. Revision is very important for English.



Cloze test is easy if you read previous papers.



English Language = 40 Questions = 40 Marks

4. General Awareness:



This is the easiest section in Bank Exams. For GK, Read the questions posted on our website and read last 6 months Current Affairs questions i.e., Apr, May, June, July, August, September 2013. 70 to 80% of the current affairs questions will be from from June, July, August, September 2013.



General Awareness = 40 Questions = 40 Marks

5. Computer Knowledge:



For computer knowledge, preparing previous exam papers is enough. Also learn more about MS office tools.



Computer Knowledge = 40 Questions = 20 Marks

There is no descriptive test for both Officers & Office Assistant Exams. Iam applying for Officer Scale 2.

Overall, I recommend you to practice 30 Previous Bank Exam papers for All Sections. If you prepare PO papers, it is easy to solve clerk papers. So, practice any bank exam paper. I have already posted some bank exam papers. Practice them.



If you have any doubts on how to prepare for IBPS RRB Exam 2013 online test, feel free to ask me in comments section. I am free from all my duties now. All The Best!..

  69. admin: A general query: I have heard many times that a PO needs to work anywhere in India for 2 years. After that he always remains in his home state for entire career. And one just circles from branch to branch in the home state every 3 years. Is it true? In that case the 2 years of outside posting would be the first 2 years of joining or as per your wish when u want? Becoz, I need my home state posting very badly as soon as possible.
