1. Inspirational Success Story of Rahul Raj – Cleared IBPS PO 2019

I am RAHUL RAJ CHOWDHURY from Agartala, capital of a small North-Eastern state of Tripura. I did my schooling from Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya and completed my B.tech from NIT Agartala in 2018.

By Swamiji’s grace, I was able to clear GATE (2018) but then chose banking for my career due to the fast and clean procedure of getting a job. In this process, I cleared 6 pre exams out of 7 that I appeared for, 4 mains out of 5 exams in 2019, and made the final list in SBI JA 2019, RRB CLERK 2019, and now in IBPS PO 2019.

All of this didn’t come suddenly. (As I proceed for the description I will refer to 2018 as an initial phase and 2019 as the later phase of preparation. After graduating I started my preparations in 2018 targeting RRB PO (since due to family obligations I had to be within the state) but missed that by a big margin.

I started preparing harder after the results were declared on 1st Jan 2019, and focused to get employed this year itself. The basics were covered in the initial phase so in 2019 the focus was more on giving mock tests and analyzing it. Also, the in-depth study of facts became an integral part of the preparation. 

Continuity and patience are the key aspects of this preparation. Though it may sound a bit ‘Old school‘, but this is the best way to reach the goal not only in clearing exams but in every aspect of man’s life. And remember the sayings of the Great Saint of India-“Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached

Solving problems from the online classes and then going through the exams helped me excel in this section. Maths was my favorite in school days, and as quant is a part of it, I used to solve problems from wherever I could get.

2.2 Reasoning Section Preparation Strategy

I cleared the basics from YouTube and further practiced questions from the Oliveboard edge. The pattern is different in pre from that of mains, so I had to adjust accordingly. Before mains, I solved puzzles and a bit of miscellaneous as this fetched most of the marks.
