Read the success story of Akshay, who was not selected in any of the companies during his campus recruitment but later with his hard work and dedication, went on to clear some well known government exams like RRB ASSISTANT 2018, INDIAN BANK PO 2018, CANARA BANK PO 2018, NIACL ASSISTANT 2018, IBPS CLERK 2018, and NIACL AO 2018.
Here is his inspiring story:
My name is Akshay and I am from Bhopal. I have completed my B.tech in Computer Science in 2018. I was not selected in any of the companies during campus recruitment and therefore I switched to Government exams. I started preparing for the same from May 2018.

Cleared IBPS CLERK (118 marks and allotted Canara Bank)

I believe in making different small goals within a goal. Thus before attempting any exam, I always decide that I will attempt all questions and then accordingly work to achieve this target.
This is possible only when you divide your 60 minutes paper in 60’s 1 minute paper and then fight for achieving set target of 1 minute.
Be competitive and make a strategy before attempting any paper. I always thought of performing the best among all the aspirants. My advice to all my fellow aspirants is to appear in all the paper. This will make you habitual with the pattern of the paper and you will eventually get familiar with the exam environment.
Oliveboard provides feature of Discuss Forum where students share their mock tests marks and their results. This makes you aware that how much more you need to improve yourself and devise your study plan accordingly. Oliveboard mock tests are very helpful and solving them has always been my priority. Practicing mock tests and then analysing them seriously helped me a lot to achieve my goals.
For English I always focussed on vocab and RC part. To prepare the same I found WORD POWER MADE EASY book of great help. As far as reasoning is concerned I referred only Oliveboard mock tests. In Quants, I usually never faced any such problem as it was my strongest subject and this section always kept me forward in every exam. Moreover, I have also referred video lessons of Oliveboard for some topics.
Especially for Quants, I have not missed a single video of Vivek Sir and found them extremely useful. For Gk section I referred Affairscloud capsules. I usually start preparing for GA few days before the exam. For interviews, try and watch various videos available on youtube to learn about small tips and tricks. Always remember that appearance and confidence are the two important factors in the interview.
My advice to all the students is to utilise your time properly. Time is very precious so make the most efficient use of every second to survive in this competitive world. Moreover never get satisfied with your performance and position. Always remember that the SKY SHOULD BE THE LIMIT.
