We are publishing the Success Story of Alpa Singh today who cleared LIC Assistant 2019. She advises the aspirants to do the preparation of Prelim & Mains simultaneously. Let’s have a detailed look at the strategies she put in place to achieve this feat.
What were your previous experience with Competitive Exams and their Results?
I took lots of exams this year but was not able to make it to the final. I took various Mains like RRB PO, LIC ADO, SBI Clerk, IBPS Clerk and LIC Assistant and was not able to qualify prelims of ESIC UDC, CWC, IBPS PO and SBI PO because of few marks.
What were your preparation strategies for English, Quant, Reasoning, Current Affairs & General Awareness?
First of all, I cleared my basics in Quant by solving R S Agarwal and M Tyra. I would personally suggest everyone try to practice from M Tyra; it is really helpful. For reasoning quizzes of various sites were enough to practice and once you clear your concept, try to solve puzzle daily. The more you practice puzzles, the more your speed will increase. For English, I used to take quizzes from adda247, gradeup. GA is the game-changer in any competitive exam. This section can help you to get the job or lose the job. So I would like to suggest everybody to try to do GA from the very first day. And don’t mug up, just revise, revise and revise. First revise monthly, then weekly and then monthly. I used to do PM’s 500+ questions which use to come before each exam. And you can do daily GA from any site.
What was the strategy you adopted in preparing for the exam? What was your study schedule? What were the major hurdles you overcame?
See the main thing I kept in my mind was I have to get it anyhow. By hook or by crook I have to get a job by 2020. And I’m here with my selection in LIC Assistant. I use to study 7-8 hours a day and I never compromised with it. I use to take a mock, then analyze it where did I get stuck and tried to improve my weak areas. See giving daily one mock helped me a lot because I got used to with exam pressure. And don’t study for mains after clearing prelims. Try to manage both simultaneously. Yeah, I faced lots of hurdles because it was really not easy to sit idle at home and prepare for exams. Sometimes I thought to quit and switch to a private job but lucky I am I have few friends who always motivated me and got family support; without them, I wouldn’t be able to make it. And yes there was little hope from inside that helped me to crack it. I am really thankful to almighty for what I have, but this is not the end I have to go far away.
How did PracticeMock help you?
Practice Mock the name itself has the definition. I practised a lot of mocks and this site helped me a lot. I came across varieties of question patterns and each was of different level. As I told you earlier, it’s PM 500+ MCQ for CA also helped me a lot. So I would suggest you go through PracticeMock Pro, it’s really awesome.
