Arijit Mandal’s Success Story

I am preparing for Regulation Bodies Exams and other relevant exams. First I created a syllabus after analyzing exams like Bank PO, RBI grade B, SEBI, EPFO, APFC and then started to prepare one weak and one strong topic daily. I started preparing for IBPS PO 2022 explicity only one month before the prelims. My strong pillars were English and Math,so I had to just work more on reasoning. I kept track of progress and time management using sectional as well as full mocks. Lastly as I was already a Research Scholar in Indian Institute of Science Bangalore before starting the preparation, I had that confidence that I can do this in short amount of time.

English Section Preparation Strategy

I didn’t prepare anything exact for it as I was doing good in the sectional mocks. I mostly used mock test for revising and fine tuning the English knowledge

Quantitative Aptitude Section Preparation Strategy

I started with the basics of chapters like average, percentage, fractions, ratio. Then I gave chapter wise mocks for those. After that I studied chapters like ages, time and distance, time and work. Lastly using the concepts of basic chapter I started studying simple DI and then went into solving mains level DI once I got comfortable and satisfied with my time management.

Reasoning Section Preparation Strategy

I was struggling mainly in three topics, which were syllogisms, puzzle and seating arrangement. So I alloted a particular amount of time each day to these three topics. I tried solving at least 5 puzzles or seating arrangement each day. Before mains I solved puzzle and seating arrangement heavy sectional mocks. These helped to understand which questions to do and which to leave if there is a time crunch in exam.

General Awareness Section Preparation Strategy

As I am already preparing for Regulatory bodies exams, I didn’t prepare anything extra for the GA section of IBPS PO. I mostly prepared studying weekly and monthly current affairs compilation. I also read newspaper to keep myself updated in general manner.

Computer Awareness Section Preparation Strategy

As I have basic and working knowledge of computers. I just had to fine tune the knowledge to make it exam centric. For that I used some YouTube videos on computer and shortcut keys along with previous years questions.

Overall Strategy, Study Schedule & Challenges Faced

I didn’t make any separate schedule for it. I was preparing for Regulatory bodies exam so I had a routine in which I did Quant, English, Reasoning in the first half of thw day and in the latter half I used to do GA and subjects like finance, economy, management, costing etc. I used pomodaro technique to increase my study hours efficiently. On top of that revising using spaced repetition method and active recall, I revised and retained a huge amount of the syllabus in a short time period.

Yes. The main hurdle for me was to sit and study with focus for longer durations. I gradually made a habit of waking up early and not staying up late at night. I used pomodaro technique to study with high focus. On top that I made a common syllabus after extensive research but following it wasn’t easy as there were a lot of subjects which I was studying for the first time. So I had be patient and had to learn to increase my reading speed.
