IBPS RRB Office Assistant preparation Tips and Tricks 

Increase speed and accuracy 

Getting a good grasp on the concepts and the fundamentals is important but what is also important is increasing your speed and accuracy. In competitive exams, what matters is how quickly you can solve the problem and provide the answers, accurate answers, of course. One way to improve your accuracy and speed is by practicing previous year’s question papers and taking mock tests. The mock tests will prepare for the type of questions that may come in the exam this year. 

More and more books 

You may feel like you are drowning in books, but learning from just one book is not enough to clear the exam. There are several well-known publishers who publish IBPS books. Get these books in your cart as soon as possible! 

Maintain a strict schedule 

Some of us cannot stick to a schedule but when you are preparing for an exam that is held nationwide you have to mind your ways and force yourself to stick to a routine. This means sleeping on time and eating on time. 

You need to be well-rested for your mind to work well. Feeling fatigued or exhausted all day will not help. Humans need eight hours of sleep daily, so make it point to keep away your phone right after you have your dinner. Get that much needed so that you feel fresh in the morning and your brain is ready to aboard to new ideas and concepts. 

Keep yourself hydrated 

Drinking a lot of water will keep you feeling healthy. Since you will be spending a lot of time indoors and tucked away in your study, you may experience indigestion, gas, bloating, etc. To avoid this discomfort during study sessions, drink as much water as you can. 

Don’t rush 

Take your time to read the question paper. Don’t start writing on your paper as soon as you get the question paper. First, mark the questions that you know the answer to. Finish writing the answers to these questions and then move on to working on the ones that you are unsure of. 

Set a timer 

You know every exam has a time limit, this one has too. Setting a timer every time you attempt to solve a question paper will be good practice. The more you practice with a timer the less you will panic even when there isn’t much time left on the clock. 

Carry extra stationery 

You don’t want to run out of your ink when you are giving the exam. Always carry extra pens, erasers and pencils. Don’t forget to carry a geometry box as well. 

Try to finish the paper 5-10 mins before the time is up so that you can re-read the paper and correct any silly mistake that you might have made. You can also recheck your calculations to ensure that your calculations are right. 

We have covered all the important points in this article. If you want to add or remove anything from the study plan, you can do so, but make sure you follow the routine diligently without any fail. If you give your best, there is more than a 50 % chance of your cracking the exam!
