RBI Exams – Important Pointers
Every step of the recruitment process for various government exams is as important as the online exam or Interview. It is important that every candidate completes and fulfils all the requirements of the conducting body.
Given below are the important things to remember during the entire period of recruitment for RBI exams for either of the two posts:
Official Notification Release – It marks the beginning of the recruitment process. Once the official notification is released, the important dates, eligibility, exam pattern, syllabus, etc. are also announced. So for any candidate who wishes to apply for the RBI exams needs to carefully go through the notification and then move on with the further process.
Online Application – The next important thing is filling the application form. Each and every detail mentioned in the form must be correct. Educational details, Personal information, document uploading, and contact information are all supposed to be mentioned in the online application form.
Admit Card Release – Once the application process is complete and the candidate’s application is accepted, the next step is the release of RBI admit card. The RBI admit card is released 10 to 15 days prior to the date of examination. It acts as proof that a candidate has completed the registration formalities and is eligible to appear for the examination.
Conducting Exam – The most important part is conducting the examination. Once the examination is conducted, only then can candidates be shortlisted for the next phase of examination or for the final selection. Mostly the RBI exams are conducted in two phases – prelims and mains exam but for the Officer, cadre Interview is also conducted.
Result Declaration – Once the exam is conducted, based on the overall performance of applicants across India, the RBI result is declared. The cut-off, result, and the qualifying marks are all released by the conducting body.
Document Verification – Once the online exams and the Interview are conducted, the next step is document verification. Whatever educational and academic details are filled in the application form are checked at the time of the Interview to avoid any kind of discrepancy. Candidates belonging to different categories also need to bring in their caste certificates for verification.
Final Selection – The final list of candidates is released after the exam, Interview and document verification are done. Applicants who manage to score the cut off marks are appointed for the post of Assistant or Officer, based on the post for which they have applied.
The above-mentioned details are quite similar to the recruitment process for various other government exams. Candidates preparing for any other exam in the banking sector can analyze the information given above and accordingly prepare for the exam.
