1. Here’s The Motivating Success Story of Shivam Paul
My name is Shivam Paul. I am from Guwahati, Assam. I have done my B.com (Accountancy) Hons. from Gauhati Commerce College, Guwahati. I have qualified for the LIC Assistant Exam. I have started preparing for Government jobs right after my graduation. I was able to clear almost all the preliminary exams but was unable to clear the mains exam.
Being a student from Commerce background, my stronghold was on Banking & Insurance awareness but that was not enough to crack the phase 2. General awareness section has been my favorite since inception which pushed me to read newspapers daily & thus revise at the end of the month with the Oliveboard Bolt.
