Success Story of Amit Bhatt – Cleared BOB PO(2018), SBI Clerk (2018)

“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” This tagline rightly suits Amit Bhatt who cleared many exams successfully. Here is the success story of Amit Bhatt which will surely inspire many other aspirants.

“I have completed my B.Tech(CSE) from G.B.P.U.A.T, Pantnagar. Got my joining letter from TCS in November 2017 but decided not to accept it and prepare for banking instead. Special focus was on GA and English as most of the students lack in these and good command over these subjects can give you essential additional marks above the mains cutoff to make it to the final list.

Here is my preparation strategy/tips :


First of all clear all your basic concepts from the following sources:

1} Arun Sharma Book

2} Disha publications of IBPS

Then sufficient practice is required for which Oliveboard mock tests are more than enough. Just make sure to analyse all the questions thoroughly.


For prelims clear concepts of different types of questions like coding-decoding, syllogism, inequality, blood relation etc. For mains, you just practice Oliveboard mock tests as it will make you well aware of all types of questions that can be asked in the examination and since the level of questions is also very high, you will be able to test yourself to the upper limit.


For grammar, I referred book named “From Plinth to Paramount” by Neetu Singh. To enhance your reading skills and vocab read The Hindu Editorial (daily). For Practicing Oliveboard is sufficient. Amalgamation of these three strategies can improve your English score drastically.


Try and attempt as many weekly quizzes as you can. Revise GK/GA as many times as possible. This can easily fetch you 90 per cent marks in GA.


Focus on basic banking terminologies and current hot topics from various sources. Most importantly, be genuine and have sound knowledge about your hobbies, hometown, college, and graduation subject.

How Oliveboard was useful?

Exams these days are changing the pattern quite frequently and it is hard to mould your preparation accordingly. Oliveboard introduces us to the extent these examinations can go. When we score well in Oliveboard, it’s reflected in our examination scores too. Not just giving the mock tests, but analyzing them later strengthens our concepts because the questions are unique and different than all the platforms. Even in various examinations when students face a new question, they avoid the risk of attempting it but because of Oliveboard, chances are high that you have solved that kind of question in mock tests. Also, Oliveboard generates a habit in you to score the max possible marks even in an extremely tough exam.

Tip To Aspirants:

Whether it’s a failure or a success, there is always some scope for improvement. So keep finding areas where you can improve and work on that.

I wish all the very best to all the aspirants.”
