Know Success Story of Abhay Pratap Singh, who proved all the myths around government jobs wrong and went on to clear SBI PO in the first attempt.
Hello everyone, I am Abhay Pratap Singh, hails from the beautiful state of Chhattisgarh. I have done my Engineering in the historic city Allahabad(Now Prayagraj ) from MNNIT Allahabad in Mechanical Engg course and I have been preparing for various government exams since my graduation in 2017.
I have cleared the LIC AAO prelims, IBPS RRB PO prelims, CWC JS Prelims and Mains, SSC Tier 1 and Tier 2,EPFO Prelims. Most of these exams are still ongoing.
In SBI PO, I have scored 56.63 marks in the final list and have thankfully got my preferred circle.
I began my journey as a UPSC aspirant but I wasn’t very much inclined in the career. I was more interested in bank exams. I started researching about the various bank exams and also came across the LIC AAO career. It was my first preference to fetch a job in LIC.
I took the LIC AAO cracker course on Oliveboard and started preparing for it. I cleared the prelims marginally but couldn’t clear the Mains as I was not well prepared in the general awareness section. But the same course prepared me to clear the SBI PO Prelims.
I took this opportunity and joined the SBI Mains cracker course on Oliveboard and followed it religiously with the help of my personal customized time table. I successfully cleared the mains and then watched some interview videos on Youtube. Thankfully I was able to clear the whole process in my first attempt itself.
Tips– First of all you need to decide which field you are interested in. If its banking sector, then you are in luck as it will help you prepare for numerous exams all at once. After deciding the stream, you just need to find a proper guide and Oliveboard proves to be apt.
1- Join a course to get a comprehensive idea of the exams(Not that expensive)
2- Give regular mock tests and analyze them on that day itself
3- Try to attend the live classes as it helps a lot
4- LPS are a fun and quick way to learn and must not be missed
5- Don’t ignore any section. Each can help fetch the required marks for clearing the exam
6- Most importantly don’t lose hope and keep pushing
Aptitude– I was familiar with aptitude from Engg but the course gave me more clarity. I was weak in the section relatively but I got better with practice.
English- It may sound foolish but inculcate English movies, English TV series in your life as it helps you learn English organically. Professionally speaking Newspaper is a big help and can’t be ignored.
LR- Once you get the idea of question types and basic steps to get the solution it becomes really fun. Oliveboard will make it interesting and after that it is all about practice.
GK/GA– For me the BOLT magazine was the one step solution for this part and I can say that I am a satisfied reader.
Interview– Interview is the most crucial stage in SBI PO exam and it is more about your personality than knowledge. But going prepared for the exam helps you build confidence and it is the key that helps you crack the Interview. Language is not a barrier in the interview at least not in SBI PO. The only thing they are looking for is a confident and aware candidate.
Oliveboard– I really enjoyed the way Vivek sir and Chandan sir taught us Quant, the general awareness section by Aditya sir was comprehensive, the English by Harshita ma’am was intriguing and reasoning was so much fun with Mukesh sir. Overall it was a beautiful journey in which Oliveboard was always by my side. I owe my deepest gratitude to Oliveboard for making my dream come true.
All the best to all of you! Keep Pushing…
