Success Story of Himani Mittal – Cleared SBI PO 2018 (First Attempt)

“Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do.” Similarly, Himani followed her ambition and kept working hard to achieve success in her life.

Here is the inspiring success story of Himani Mittal:

“I am Himani Mittal. I’ve completed my graduation from SRCC and masters from Hindu College. I had started preparing for SBI PO in May 2018 after the notification for the same came out.

Since I was preparing for other competitive exams too like NABARD, RBI etc., I was clear with my basics and very well versed with the pattern of the paper. My mantra for clearing the exam is ‘PRACTICE’.

First, make sure that all your basics are crystal clear. For English focus on Grammar rules and learn how to solve basic patterns, syllogism etc. Keep practising as much as you can.

Practice is the key for clearing SBI PO ( both prelims and mains). Solve at least 20 mock tests for prelims and 10 mock tests for mains. This will help you in increasing your speed and also make you accustomed to the actual exam pattern. By solving mock tests, you will get to practice a lot of new type of questions. Please learn all the basic formulas for P/L, Time/Speed/Distance, Ratios etc. This will help you a lot to improve your Aptitude and Logical Reasoning section.

I think GA/GK  is one of the easiest part and the most scoring one. Read current affairs for at least last 4 months from the exam month and revise it thrice before the exam. For banking, learn the basic terminologies. Meanwhile, do attempt various quizzes. Apart from this, do revise the GA section of the mock tests that you have attempted.

This is what I have done for clearing Prelims and Mains.

Interview questions vary from person to person depending upon the educational qualifications, interests, work experience etc. Since, I am from commerce background so I was asked technical questions like what is sensitive analysis, the difference between market price and factor cost and so on. So my advice is that make sure you know everything about yourself (whatever you have written in your bio-data form), know the basics of your graduation subjects and be confident.

Last but not least, a big thank you to Oliveboard. Oliveboard Test Series has helped me a lot in clearing the exam. Both for prelims and mains, I bought Oliveboard test series and the mock tests were really good. Questions were up to the mark and the difficulty level was equivalent to the actual exam.

So this was it. I hope my story will help you in achieving your dreams.

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