NABARD Grade A Exam Analysis

Now it’s time to talk about analyzing the NABARD Grade A exams and while we do that, I would like to bring to your attention the fact that the last Grade A exam took place in 2020 only.

This is the exam we would be analyzing in our article till the 2021 exam takes place., after which the article would be updated accordingly.

By going through the 2020 NABARD Grade A exam analysis, you’ll be able to get an idea about the difficulty and the types of questions that are likely to be asked in the upcoming exams.

So without beating around the bush much, let me get straight to it.

The 2020 NABARD Grade A exam had 3 stages.

The first was Phase 1 or Prelims round, the second was phase 2 and the third was the Interview round.

Since the Interviews are not conducted in a paper/test manner and it would not be possible to analyse each of my students’ interviews, I won’t be covering interview analysis in this blog.

Let’s go through the exam analysis of the Prelims round first.

NABARD Grade A Exam Analysis of Prelims 2020

Okay, so before we begin with the NABARD Grade A exam analysis of the prelims round, let me list down the subjects in the prelims round.

  • Reasoning
  • Computer Knowledge
  • General awareness
  • English Language
  • Quantitative Aptitude
  • Social & Economic Issues (emphasis on Rural India)
  • Agriculture & Rural Development (emphasis on Rural India)

Now, let’s take a look at subject-wise good attempts of the 2020 prelims paper.

Now, you might ask, what are good attempts?

So, basically, good attempts mean the number of questions that if attempted are considered good from the scoring point of view, taking into account the difficulty level of the paper.

You would get a better idea of the various sections provided in the exam analysis once you go through the exam pattern first.

Logical Reasoning

The difficulty level of the section of reasoning in the 2020 prelims paper was easy to moderate. The paper had 2 sets of seating arrangements and puzzle-based questions. I have listed them both below:

  • Seating Arrangement (circular) – with cities and people
  • Seating Arrangement (Linear) – 8 people and colors

The paper also had Data Sufficiency questions which were based on Box and floor-based puzzles.

The English section included questions whose difficulty levels ranged from easy to moderate as well. In this section, there were 2 sets of RCs (Reading Comprehension). The first one was one of the topics of retired servicemen and their preferences on where to settle after retirement. There were 8 questions based on this Reading Comprehension.

The second RC was based on an article on business and economy. The difficulty level of this RC was higher than the first one.

  • Example of Hardware

Most questions from the Rural & Agricultural Development section were based on recently launched schemes or the ones in the news.
