I am Shantanu Singh and this is my success story which I will be presenting in the form of this article. I gave my first exam of SBI PO in 2019 and I cleared the prelims, but could not clear mains exam. I have given multiple mocks and as far as my study schedule is concerned I did follow a rigorous schedule and I used to give mock tests on a regular basis as they helped me in finding my mistakes.

IBPS RRB Clerk Exam Preparation Journey

I gave my first exam of banking, SBI PO in 2019 and RRB Clerk after that in which I cleared the prelims but failed in Mains. 2020 was completely wasted due to COVID and my prep was on/off for quite sometime. Then finally in Oct 2021 I stepped out of home and rigorously studied and cleared all the prelims, but still couldn’t clear mains. Eventually I got selected in IBPS CLERK XI in the reserve list and this year I got selected in RRB Clerk as well. As far as exams in which I have appeared include:

  • SBI PO 2019 – FAIL
  • RRB PO/CLERK 2021 – FAIL
  • SBI PO 2021 – OUT IN MAINS

Subject-Wise Preparation Strategy

English Section Preparation:

I didn’t really have to prepare much for the english section, as I have a strong hold in English since childhood due to my ICSE background. I just gave mocks on a regular basis and kept marking my weaknesses and worked on them.

Quantitative Aptitude Section Preparation: 

I have always been good at quants being from an Engineering background. But the classes of Ashish Arora Sir really helped me to solve the questions with a better and faster approach.

Reasoning Section Preparation:

Reasoning was something that I always dreaded, I could never solve the puzzles as I lacked the imagination. But thanks to Puneet Sir and his innovative ways which helped me learn the concepts. Today I can proudly say that Reasoning is my highest scoring area.

General Awareness Section Preparation: 

I have always relied on Affair Cloud for PDF and Aditya Sir and Sheetal Ma’am for videos. Just giving 2-3 hours of your day can give you a good grasp on the subject. Remember Revision is the key. Candidates can also prepare from weekly CA & monthly CA PDF from practicemock.

Overall Strategy & Challenges Faced

I did follow a rigorous schedule. I used to study for 6-8 hours a day giving equal time to every subject so that I can have a balanced score. I gave mocks on a regular basis they help you find your mistakes. I was very weak in GA and Reasoning in the initial days but continuous practice and never give up attitude and proper guidance helped me win over my shortcomings.
