2. Saajan’s Section-wise Preparation Strategy

2.2 English Section Preparation Strategy

English was always difficult for me as I completed my schooling from the Hindi medium. I tried to learn the grammar rules. But there are so many rules. You can’t learn all the rules and apply them in a 1-hour exam. So I took a different approach. I started reading newspapers, books, and watching movies in English.

I made it a habit to learn at least 15 vocabs daily. I used to attempt 2 mini quizzes every day. And that strategy helped me to clear this section with really good marks.

2.3 Reasoning Section Preparation Strategy

Again, first, learn the basics and then go for mock tests. Try to solve new types of puzzles for which I used to search puzzles on Google and then solve those puzzles. And Oliveboard also provides you with a good number of puzzles. One thing which is very important in reasoning is to select the right type of questions and that comes with practice.

2.4 GA Section Preparation Strategy

This section needs a variety of platforms as I prepared from monthly chronicle magazines and various youtube channels.

2.5 His Tips For GD & Interview

For group discussion –  read newspapers for the latest news and some important topics related to banking. The main purpose of the GD round is to know whether you can present your views in front of people. So be relaxed.

For interview: I would advise you to be yourself. You should know about your place of living, the subjects that you have studied, about your job if you have done any. The interview is just a meeting where some people would like to know about you, so don’t worry.

Learn all the basics of banking terms.

3. How Oliveboard helped Saajan Succeed?

I took a complete package of the Oliveboard test series where I got numerous mock tests. Oliveboard helped me to tackle the tricky and lengthy questions of SBI PO mains. I used to attempt at least one mock test on every alternate day. 

Frankly speaking, the mains level Oliveboard mock test is not at all easy. Personally, I felt that those tests were even more difficult than the actual SBI PO mains exam but those mock tests vanished my fear of attempting mains level questions and helped me to clear the mains of the SBI PO exam.

4. Few Tips To Aspirants

  1. Try to attempt as many mock tests as you can.
  2. Not just attempt a mock test but also analyze it and try to know about your weaknesses and strengths.
  3. Believe in yourself and don’t let others discourage you.
  4. Most importantly don’t panic during the exam because the more you are relaxed, the more are the chances of getting good marks.

So, Best of luck to all of you for your future endeavors. And I hope and wish that you will achieve your goals very soon.
