1) Being rigid in your approach: Aspirants are suggested to have a flexible approach while preparing for RBI Grade B Phase 2. As it includes both subjective as well as objective paper, so you need to have different approaches for both these papers and attempt accordingly.

However, if you recapitulate all the important topics which you have studied, it will help you immensely in memorizing all those topics which you have studied. This will help you in attempting mock number of questions accurately. 

3) Picking the wrong questions: One of the mistakes which you need to shy away from is picking the wrong set of questions. Go through the paper carefully, and choose those questions which can be attempted correctly by you. Do not be caught in the web of choosing questions which cannot be easily solved.

4) Not knowing when to let go: If you are stuck in a question, rather than wasting a significant amount of time in solving the question, you should move to the next questions after giving a last try. Spending a lot of time in a single question will not only frustrate you but will also tamper with the overall time limit of the exam. So, manage time effectively if you want to crack RBI Grade B.

5) Not attempting mock tests: One of the major blunders which you need to avoid at all cost is not giving importance to mock tests. Maximize the number of mock attempts and analyse those mocks. Only by following this practice, you can get a good score in the exam.
