  3. Statistics

  • Paper-I: Economics and Social Science (objective type)

  • Paper-II: English (Writing Skills) (descriptive type- to be typed on computer)

  • Paper III: Finance & Management (optional subjects withdrawn)

How will it impact the aspirants?

We believe that this step will be beneficial for the aspirants of RBI Grade-B jobs. This is so because they will now have to study just one subject, which means that they can focus on a single subject better. Often the students find Economics & Statistics difficult and RBI has phased out these subjects from Paper-III of Phase-II.

Selection Procedure

There has been no change in the selection procedure of RBI Grade B Exam. The exam shall be conducted in three phase only, viz. Phase-I, Phase-II & Interview.

The candidates have to qualify each round to reach the next level. In the final selection, the marks of Phase-II & performance in the interview rounds shall be analyzed. The interview round of RBI Grade B Exam carries 50 marks.
