‘Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity’, says Suman who has cleared multiple banking and Insurance examinations. Read the detailed Success Strategy of Suman Bharati below:
“Hi Friends! I am Suman Bharati from Patna, I have been selected in ‘The Oriental Insurance Company’ and currently posted at Vadodara, Gujarat.
I have completed my Bachelors in Physics, graduated in the year 2016. After completing my graduation I started preparing for government exams, and after preparing for almost a year I cracked quite a few Banking and Insurance examinations in the year 2017.
The strategy which I followed to clear all the examinations:
I always had the upper hand in Quantitative Aptitude. I started my preparation through a book by Sarvesh Kumar, and after understanding critical concepts, I started taking Mock tests. Needless to say, my entire preparation revolved around Oliveboard tests. The quality of questions they provide matches the level of actual exam level and their detailed analysis after mock test helped me a lot.
For Reasoning, I solely relied on Mock tests provided by Oliveboard, which helped me a lot by providing me a decent exposure towards all kind of puzzles/problems. Due to my intense practice during my practice sessions, I gained confidence and good speed which helped me crossing the cutoff barriers with an ease.
For English section, I referred “The Hindu” and read the newspaper on a regular basis which helped me in gaining knowledge about various domains and also helped in vocabulary preparation. For grammar, I just focused on basic fundamentals and referred various resources for the improvement.
For General Awareness section, I followed Affairs Cloud and also made my own notes through different online resources. I prepared static GK through Oliveboard’s pdf. I solved Oliveboard Mock Tests religiously and it finished my fear of examination by preparing me enough for the D-Day through its tests.
On my D-Day, I solved mathematics first and then Reasoning section in which I focused more on the easy questions (Blood relation, direction sense, syllogisms) in my initial few minutes and then attempted puzzles followed by English. I would not recommend you to follow the exact steps the way I did, rather I would say find out your strength and weakness and then devise your own strategy.
The last thing I believe is that cracking exam is not about how many hours/months or years you prepare, it is all about mindset. If you want it, go and get it.
Thank you Oliveboard.
Hope this helps!
