"I enrolled for the Oliveboard's Phase-II Study Material and Mock Test Series. It genuinely helped me to get comprehensive coverage for all the sections of the Phase-II syllabus. Solving questions from the Oliveboard test series really helped me with comprehensive revision. Each topic from the syllabus of ESI & FM was covered in a separate module. Also, Oliveboard has good C.A. coverage which was again quite beneficial."

Veerella Ravichandra

Cleared RBI Grade B 2021

"The mock tests provided by Oliveboard for both Phase 1 and 2 are of high quality and follow a similar style and pattern to the RBI. The post-test analytics helped me in identifying strong and weak areas. The mock interview session conducted by Oliveboard with ex-RBI employees gave an insight into the expectations of the board and helped me in improving the structure and delivery of answers."
