1. Success Story of Khushboo – An Inspiring Journey

Hello, I am Khushboo from Delhi. I completed my graduation in maths(h) from Delhi university in 2018. I had cleared the IBPS clerk in the UR category from the Delhi region.

But before tasting the sweetness of success I had to taste a lot of the sourness of failure. 

In 2018 –

Ibps PO/Clerk – Pre not cleared 

In 2019 –

LIC AAO/ADO-Pre cleared but failed in mains 

SBI PO/Clerk – Pre cleared but failed in mains 

EPFO ASO -Failed in Pre

CWC – Failed in Pre

 IBPS PO -Pre cleared but failed in mains 

FCI – Pre cleared but failed in mains

In 2020 –

 Finally cleared IBPS clerk and also cleared EPFO SSA pre/mains exam.

 I started my preparation in July 2018, firstly I went through all the topics, and then I used to work on my weak areas, however, you will find it difficult to work with a dedicated mind in your weak area but honestly, if you do it then the success is yours.

After that, I gave at least 1 mock test in 2 days for a pre and 1 mock test in a week for the mains exam. Mock tests play a vital role in this journey but the main thing is to analyze your mistakes honestly and work on it.

2. Section-wise Preparation Strategy

2.1 Reasoning Section Preparation Strategy

Do as much practice as you can but for mains, you should develop the ability so that you can decide which question to choose and which not to choose like, I choose the puzzle I want to attempt.

2.2 Quant Section Preparation Strategy

There are some DI that is easily doable. And also there are some questions that seem to be difficult in these sections but if you can resolve the logic behind it then it becomes the easiest. Here pre-exam is all about practice, and mains are all about your understanding.

2.3 English Section Preparation Strategy

Here your understanding skill plays a vital role, and also there are a lot of students (like me) who are not able to understand English very well but after reading the daily newspaper and by giving at least 1 daily quiz I was able to score good marks in this section.

2.4 GA Section Preparation Strategy

Write/learn current affairs on a daily basis and also try to give a daily quiz of the GA section because it will help you to recall things.

3. Few Tips To Aspirants

Remember: Mock tests along with previous year papers act as limbs of the preparation and play a vital role. You will get an intense idea about this exam. Initially, I lacked this method which was a big mistake I made in my previous attempts.

Here are some tips for aspirants:

  1. Be regular
  2. Solving as many mock tests as possible with deep analysis.
  3. Understand yourself, like, in which area you can score more.

With these tips, you can achieve success in any exam.

4. Role of Oliveboard in Khushboo’s Success

Honestly, I scored well in Reasoning and Maths, only because of Mukesh Sir and Chandan Sir. Their tips and tricks to solve any level of questions helped me a lot.

Not only this but also for the GA section, the monthly bolt of Oliveboard helped me a lot. As 80-90% of questions come from this bolt.

In the end, I would like to say that if you prepare yourself, you have the ability to be better than anyone else.
