In this post I am going to tell you about the detailed RBI Assistant Exam Pattern 2017. As you are aware that the notification for the RBI Assistant is already out therefore it is the right time to know about the exam pattern of RBI Assistant.
Before telling you about the exam pattern I would like to tell you that RBI Assistant is a very good and attractive job. It is even better to IBPS PO in certain terms. RBI which is the Central Bank of India, facilities for the employees are unmatched.
While in public sector banks there is a lot of pressure on clerks and officers however in RBI there is no such pressure. Being the regulator of the banks the job of RBI is much peaceful and comfortable. Therefore this is my personal advise to all of you that you should try your best to grab this opportunity.
RBI Assistant jobs are announced almost every 1-2 year. The recruitment is not as regular as that of IBPS. Therefore you should not miss this opportunity as nobody knows when the vacancies will be announced again.
Let us also talk about the eligibility criteria for the post of RBI Assistant. For RBI Assistant minimum qualification is graduation with a minimum of 50% marks (pass class for SC/ST/PWD candidates) in the aggregate and the knowledge of word processing on PC. The age limit is from 20 to 28 years.
