Success Story of Mohit Rawat – Cleared SBI PO (2018)

“Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do.” Similarly, Mohit, who is a commerce graduate followed his ambition and kept working hard to achieve success in his life. Here is the inspiring success story of Mohit Rawat:

If I were to quickly walk you through my 23 years of existence on this planet, you’d get to know that I’m a student of commerce, and I’ve done my 12th from Doon International School, Dehradun (CBSE) in 2014. I’ve done my Bachelors (in commerce) from Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, University of Delhi. I graduated in 2017. I then came back to Doon, and gave my IBPS PO, but wasn’t able to Clear the interview. So I tried again, and took coaching and gave Mock tests at Oliveboard (I’m sure you’ve heard of it, it’s one of the best sites for Mocks. I can vouch for their SBI series! Rest, go check them out).

Preparation Strategy:


Strategies are subjective. One needs to personalise one’s strategy with one’s capabilities to get maximum benefits. The Preliminary exams check your knowledge and speed, so I did the syllabus by myself (it gave me a good understanding of the underlying concepts; this helped me in my Mains as well). Then I gave Oliveboard Mock Test to gain speed in Quants section.


Same for the Reasoning as well. Practice as much as you can. I made sure that I gave a good number of mock tests to prepare myself for the exam.



Always clear your Grammar basics before giving mock tests. Read some good newspapers to work on your vocab and to improve your reading skills.


Keep yourself updated by reading newspapers and watching news channels. Make short notes so you can cover them easily during your revision time.

Role of Oliveboard:

Oliveboard mock tests were critical to my being able to crack the exam. Knowledge and Speed are imperative for these exams but you also need confidence in your own abilities. A strong intuition needs to be developed to manage risks when one is confronted with tricky questions. This is best done by giving a lot of Mocks. Oliveboard is known for their Standard Mock Test series which is tougher than the usual SBI/IBPS PO. Once I started getting good enough marks in my Oliveboard Mock tests, my confidence in my ability to Crack the SBI exam increased.

I want to thank Team Oliveboard for creating quality and challenging test series for the SBI PO. I absolutely loved it! It gave me the level of confidence that I needed to clear the Preliminary as well as the Main examination of SBI.

Tip to Aspirants:

Be confident and believe in yourself. You may face difficulties or get demotivated at times but never let that affect your preparations. All in all, a lot of effort went into my being able to Crack SBI PO, and everyone played their role in my success, be it my family, my coaching institute, or the Oliveboard mock series. Thank you to all of these people/institutions.

I would like to wish best of luck to all the aspirants. Go ahead and achieve your dreams.”
