Read success story of Utkarsh ranjan from Bihar, who cleared Bihar State Cooperative Bank after multiple failures. Utkarsh believes that if you have proper guidance and a good strategy then nothing is impossible.
Here is his inspiring story:
Hello guys, I am Utkarsh from Muzaffarpur, Bihar. Recently I have qualified for Bihar State Cooperative Bank as an Assistant Manager.I have completed my B.tech from Delhi in 2016. After that, I did search for a job but could not get the right opportunity. So, I started my banking preparation in 2017.
My first exam was SBI PO in 2017 and fortunately I could crack the prelims but didn’t get through Mains. In my banking journey, I realized that prelims is about speed and mains is all about the concept. During my preparation journey, Oliveboard mocks tests proved extremely beneficial for me & helped me a lot especially in Reasoning and English section.
My preparation strategy & tips:
Reasoning: For puzzles and seating arrangement you have to rely on mock tests and quizzes. Solve 4-5 mains level puzzles daily from various sources provided on the internet. The success for this section is very much dependent on how we select & attempt the questions especially in mains.
Quants: For this section, you will have to choose some arithmetic chapters and get command over it. For DI, percentage and ratio proportion is the most important chapter. Attempting & analyzing Oliveboard mocks tests will help you guys to clear your concepts and build confidence for mains.
English: Reading is the key to success for this section. Here I am providing some good article sources: Project Syndicate, Economist The guardian, Business Standard Aeon, The Diplomat. After reading do analyse mock tests and practice some quizzes for new pattern questions.
GA: For this section, I used to read daily current affairs from various sources and attempted as many quizzes as I could. Remember, Revision is the key.
Here is the list of the exams attempted:
1- SBI PO 2017: Qualified prelims but could not clear mains
2- IBPS PO 2017: Did not qualify Prelims
3- IBPS CLERK: Qualified prelims but could not clear mains
4- Canara, Syndicate and BOB PGDBM: Did not qualify
5- SBI PO 2018: Qualified prelims but could not clear mains
6- SBI CLERK 2018: Qualified prelims but could not clear mains
7- RRB PO 2018: Qualified both prelims and mains reached till the interview
8- IBPS PO 2018: Qualified both prelims and mains reached till the interview
9- Bihar State Cooperative Bank: Selected as Assistant Manager (BSCB Patna)
At last I want to say that if a mediocre student like me can qualify bank exam then why not you. Never give up and remember that nothing is impossible if you have proper guidance and strategy.
