Inspiring Preparation Journey of Diksha Singh Rajput
I’m a 24-year-old from Bhopal and have been working as an Associate in the State Bank of India since January 2020. This was the third time that I was appearing for the exam. Both times before I have cleared the interview but couldn’t make it to the final list. I didn’t stress too much this time. I simply gave a few mocks for Pre from Oliveboard after purchasing their test series. I was able to score 71 in Prelims. Right after Pre, I started giving Mains mocks from Oliveboard. I would give half of the test in the morning before work and the remaining half in the evening after coming back from my branch. I would analyse my mistakes and reattempt the wrong questions. This helped me in scoring 111.42 out of 250 in Mains. Around 17 marks over the UR cutoff.
Subject-Wise Preparation Strategy of Diksha Singh Rajput
For GA I referred to daily current affairs updated on Oliveboard apart from their monthly bolt pdf. I started doing current affairs as soon as the notification was out.
For the remaining subjects, I simply attempted mocks. Since I was aware of the basics and pattern of the exam due to previous attempts I focused on maximising score in mocks only.
Role of Oliveboard
I have personally found that Oliveboard mocks are at par with the level of difficulty in actual SBI PO Mains. The high-level questions helped me in being better prepared for the actual exam. So I was able to easily attempt good number of questions in Quant and Reasoning in the mains.
