1. Motivating Success Story of Naina Soni – Cleared IBPS PO 2019
Hello Everyone, my name is Naina Soni. I completed my graduation in 2011 from commerce stream and post-graduation in 2013 from ABST. I am married and have a kid of 1.7 years. After marriage and having a very small kid, I could make it only because of my family support.
I have worked for almost 8 years in the corporate sector. I joined a BPO in 2011 and worked there for 6 years in the accounts department. Then in 2017 I joined another company and worked there for 1.6 years in the US mortgage banking sector. When I was working in my last company, I thought of preparing for competitive exams; however, I had no idea how to start. So, I took the help of youtube videos and online sources.
I gave IBPS PO 2017 exam however I couldn’t clear prelims as due to job pressure, I couldn’t prepare well. Then I started preparing well and again gave the exam of IBPS PO 2018, and was able to clear prelim, mains, and reached the interview stage however couldn’t make it in the final result. So again, I gave the exam of SBI PO 2019, and then the same happened. After clearing prelim, mains, and interviews, I could not make it in the final list.
I didn’t give up and again gave the exam for IBPS PO 2019. And this year, I got success in clearing the exam.
I prepared only for Bank PO and RBI exams. I neither prepared nor filled any form for bank clerical and other govt. exams like LIC, railways, etc.

3. How Oliveboard Helped Naina Achieve Success?
My mantra for clearing the exam is only ‘PRACTICE’. I didn’t prepare anything from books and took help only from online resources and I must say that OLIVEBOARD is a great platform to help you in your preparation. Oliveboard youtube Videos were very helpful in my preparation and clearing my concepts for the topic.
I purchased the Oliveboard mock test series which helped me a lot in my preparation. I found the question level of Oliveboard mock test series very good and it has questions similar to the real exam pattern.
Question pattern and level of the Oliveboard mock test are moderate to difficult which I found very helpful to prepare your mind to face real exam situations because nowadays, competition is very high, and questions which are being asked in the mains exams are really tough.
I want to thank the Oliveboard team for helping me in my preparation. I wish you all the best for your future exams.
At last, I only want to say “Success is not final; failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.”
