There is a popular saying in English that, ‘nothing succeeds like success.’ Mind you, the only path towards success is hard work and hard work. When you are facing a hyper-competitive test like NABARD DA, RDBS or GRADE A/B, then your hard work must be accompanied by cent percent sincerity, honesty, and dedication. 

Tips to Pass NABARD DA Phase-1 Exam

  1. Don’t get afraid of the exam. We take exam every day in our lives in one way or other. Be hopeful and positive that you will crack this exam. In case, god forbids, if you can’t, then still you will get other chances.
  2. The only eligibility to appear at this test is you should be a graduate. Plus, don’t forget the implied eligibility criterion that you must be practicing the mock tests of Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, and English within a stipulated time at least for the last few months together.
  3. Relax! If you weren’t practicing these papers, then don’t get panicky, now. NABARD DA EXAM – 2019-2020 Full Notification will be out shortly. And, from my personal experience as I had appeared at this exam last October – though I couldn’t crack it – you will get around a couple of months to appear at its phase -1 exam also called preliminary exam.
  4. You will be asked to complete around 100 multiple type questions in an hour. Most of these questions will be from Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning, and English.
  5. This time, the total vacancy, as pointed out online by various sites, is 92 Development Assistant Posts. However, out of these 92 posts, 9 will be for DA (Hindi). It means that if you have completed your graduation in Hindi or English, then you can apply for those 9 posts as well. However, in my personal opinion, I don’t think NABARD will allow you to apply for multiple posts while applying online.
