‘If God is making you wait, be prepared to receive more than what you asked for’, says Jitesh, an arts graduate. Read the success story of Jitesh Parihar below:
Hello Friends, I am Jitesh Parihar from Madhya Pradesh. I have cleared RRB Officer Scale I in the year 2017 and is currently working at Narmada Jhabua Gramin bank, as a scale I officer.
Friends, after completing my bachelor’s in commerce in the year 2014 I started preparing for the banking examination. It took me three long years to finally taste success. I failed quite a few times initially but never gave up on my dreams, rather chased it like a monster in the latter years.
The Strategy which I followed was:
Mathematics: At the beginning of my preparation I followed R.S Aggarwal and then switched to Sarvesh Kumar Verma in the lookout for more challenging problems. After trying my hands on various types of problems, I started up with attempting mock tests. I bought Oliveboard’s banking package and found the test at par with the banking examination.
Reasoning: I think for this section Oliveboard’s test series is more than enough and hence only followed the Online test series & nothing else. I had a good grip on puzzles, input and output, and syllogisms and hence used to attempt questions based upon these topics only nothing beyond it. For this section, I would suggest to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then play along with your strengths to ace the section.
Language: I chose Hindi as a language to attempt the RRB Officer Scale I examination.
General Awareness: For current affairs, I relied on Oliveboard’s daily GK updates and few other online resources. For the banking awareness, I followed different capsules and videos available on YouTube. I used to give four hours for General Awareness on regular basis.
Interview: My interview mainly revolved around current affairs and banking awareness and few questions based on my background.
Friends, I have failed for three years continuously but I begged myself each time with my own commitment that unless and until I clear the examination I am not returning back to my home. This commitment helped me and was able to clear the examination in the year 2017. Therefore, never give up, work hard, believe in yourself, stay focused and things will surely fall on to place.
