So, we have decided to provide an article on What To Study for RBI Grade B Phase I General Awareness 2017?

1. Current Affairs: In the last major exam i.e. SBI PO Mains, we have seen a surge in the Current Affairs related questions.

There are many expert opinions on studying current affairs for last 6 months and more. But to be very honest and from our success rate in predicting general awareness, you need max 4 months of Current Affairs for general awareness.

For RBI, one must study current affairs from February(Only financial) to May, 2017(All CA from march to may).
