Success Story of Abhishek Das – Cleared IBPS Clerk 2017

‘Stay dedicated with your preparation it doesn’t happen overnight’, says Abhishek. Read the Success Story of Abhishek Das below:

“Hello Friends, I am Abhishek Das from Uttar Pradesh. I have cleared IBPS Clerk 2017 and is currently working at Bank of India, Ghazipur. I started my banking exams preparation when I was in my final year of the graduation.

Before taking you through my strategy I would like to share something about my previous qualifications. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. But like many other students, even I had an inclination towards the government sector. Hence, chose to start my career with the banking sector which has good opportunities and career growth.

I believe that in IBPS or any other competitive examination, your strategy plays a very important role. If you are putting in a significant amount of hard work with a proper strategy, then things will surely work. As I come from an engineering background, I was slightly confident about Quants. Hence, I started my preparation with Quants. I focused mainly on the fundamentals, as I believe competitive examination or any other examination can be aced easily if the concepts are in place. After getting my fundamentals correct I started taking mock tests from Oliveboard on a day to day basis, which helped me a lot by increasing my speed and confidence.

For Reasoning, I first cleared my basics and got few tricks from my elder brother. Then as per his suggestion, I directly started taking mock tests from Oliveboard and it worked out for me. After taking quite a few mock tests I started getting confident and by the time exam approached I was all set to go.


For English, I relied exclusively on reading newspaper. I used to read ‘The Hindu’ on a regular basis which helped me build a sound vocabulary. Apart from reading the newspaper I only followed Oliveboard tests for my English preparation.

For General Awareness, I relied only on the monthly capsules which gave me the required information and kept me updated with recent happenings around the world. At last, I would only say take as many mock tests as much as possible and please spent enough time on analysis, as it will take you more mile than you can think off.

Last but not least, I owe my little success to Oliveboard. One thing which I found the best about Oliveboard is their accurate answers.

Hope this helps!
