For reasoning, you need to practice basic to moderate level of problems.
Starting from basic questions such as, Direction Test, Blood Relation etc need
to be practiced with good speed. On the other hand, the Syllogisms,
Inequalities should be practice as they can be “tricky” at some
point. Coming to Puzzle and Seating Arrangements, you need to practice the
moderate ones and obviously the standard[1] ones. Don’t expect
reasoning to be tough neither to be a cake walk. But as most of the aspirants
have been preparing for PO exams as well, the reasoning won’t be confusing for
most of them.
Numerical Ability: For Numerical Ability, Calculations is vital. Simplifications
are expected to be moderate to good[2] level. So, you need to do a
lot of simplifications with a lot of calculations. Number Series is important,
you need to make sure you don’t waste time. The Arithmetic parts needs to be
done perfectly. There can be few questions which might be calculative and
sometimes confusing, so make sure you are ready for that.
English: Expect English to be moderately higher
than RBI Assistant but not very high. Comprehension can fetch you a lot of
marks, and you SHOULD TRY TO ATTEMPT. Because, a lot of candidates, in the
recent past have got very low marks. On the other hand, Sentence
Rearrangements, Cloze test and Fill in the blanks should be practiced same as
Assistant level exams. Make sure you have a good vocabulary stock and good
sense of grammar.

Computer Knowledge part to be basic and it is expected to contain basic
questions from OS, Networking, Acronyms and all the basic chapters.
