Tips from the Topper: Prince Bansal (#AIR 1 – SBI PO 2016)

For SBI, I purchased two mock series – Oliveboard (OB) and Practice Mock (PM) for both Prelims and Mains. I also gave the free mocks provided by a few other websites. For SBI PO-both Prelims and Mains, and RBI Grade B Prelims, the mocks do a wonderful job in showing the mirror to your preparation. If nothing else, you get to know where you stand vis-a-vis your competition. While OB gives percentile score, PM gives you an AIR. The difficulty level is also comparable to the actual exam. My advice to you is that listen to everyone but find your own way. Take calculated risks, rely on your strengths, improvise when needed and give it your best shot!

All the best!
