NABARD 2017 Grade A Aspirants, gather here

There is a dearth of information on how to prepare for NABARD Grade A and Grade B exam, particularly Agri and Economics & Social issues section.

Let's gather here and share materials, strategy etc. Other aspirants who have appeared before in previous years, please share your experience.

I will start with few questions that I have

1. Roughly how many people appear in this exam? As far as I know RBI and UPSC junta would dominate this exam as aspirants.
2. Tentative date of Phase 1 of Grade A exam?

  • A lot in common with RBI
    Prelims GA was fraught with questions on policies and that too in abbreviated form.

    Frankly speaking didn't prepare for prelims seriously save going through the economic survey.

    But for mains used mrunal and pd special economics issue extensively.

    At this stage, this is an irrelevant question. The dates are not clashing and you can appear in both exams. You should think about crossing the bridge when you reach there.

    There were 6 members , all 70+
    It lasted for about 25 minutes
    Asked questions on methodology adopted to determine the poverty line, slums (as I had mentioned my interest in CSR activities in my DAF)
    Then they asked me to read a passage being shown on projector, which was followed by questions on the same; of course after the slide was put off.
    Then they showed a video by IFFCO and then some more questions.
    Overall it was really nice experience.
    Got 22/25 in interview but still couldn't make it to the final list.
  • How is the job profile?
    Salary? Perks?
