Inspiring Success Story of Ashutosh Shukla

Hello, I am Ashutosh Shukla, in Electrical Engineering from NIT Silchar(Assam) and working in Larsen and Toubro Ltd. as a Senior Engineer. I am also in the final year of my from NIT Trichy (Tamil Nadu) that is being sponsored by Larsen and Toubro Ltd.

I started my preparation in August 2020 after my semester for started online and I was at home due to corona. The banking exam came to my mind in July 2020 and this was my first attempt, where I missed SBI PO by 1 mark in pre and IBPS PO by 1.5 marks in pre. I switched my career from a well stable Engineering job to banking due to my personal reason as I am going to get engaged with the girl who is already working in PNB as a PO, so for living together I come to this sector and now aiming to go up in banking sector. Hence, in short I am Engineer turned Banker ✌️

Ashutosh Shukla Section-Wise Preparation Strategy

Quant: – As I am an Engineer, this is my strength and I had very little to learn in this subject. But I firstly list down the syllabus and topic. And then I covered one by one each topic and wrote down the important short tricks in my notes. I’m also an Oliveboard Edge subscriber so I took help from the live classes.

Reasoning:– For this, I mainly learned by giving mock tests. Also learned every type of puzzle trick and covered all miscellaneous topics and made notes of them. Then covered reasoning mainly by practicing through mock tests. 

English:- For this subject you need to cover grammar and non-grammar portions separately. Reading an editorial from any newspaper is the most important for this section. I brought the Book provided by Oliveboard and prepared from it. Also, give sectional mock tests to analyze your performance 

GA:- It is, of course, the most ignorant subject and I also did the mistake of ignoring it but anyhow I was able to cover the last 4 month GA from Oliveboard Bolt and I have given the quiz of Oliveboard daily for the last 4 months so giving quiz and covering monthly magazine from the bolt is very important. 

Computer:- Cover it from Oliveboard computer Bolt and also prepare it from Youtube and give computer quizzes present in Oliveboard mock tests. 

Overall:- I prepare mostly by giving mock tests, and according to me mock analysis is very important so I had taken Oliveboard Mock tests, Practice Mock, and from a few other websites.

Role of Oliveboard In Ashutosh Shukla’s Success

Oliveboard Mock tests are best for the banking sector as the level of paper of RRB PO  is similar to the mock tests. I had given the tests in Oliveboard. Also for the GA section, I followed Oliveboard Bolt and had given daily quizzes which helped me a lot. For the computer also, I prepare from the computer bolt provided by Oliveboard. I gave an LPS of Oliveboard which helped me a lot to check my speed and rank among competitors and I recommend everyone to attend the same. Overall I followed Oliveboard for my preparation and thanks a lot. Got success in the very first attempt in only 6 months. And I’m looking forward to crack a few regulatory exams in the upcoming years.
