To help you know about the strategies followed by successful candidates, we are publishing success stories. In this series, here we are with the success story of 'Yash Raj Sharma` who cleared IBPS RRB PO 2018 exam.
I thanks BYJU'S Exam Prep for being such a great help for all those who are preparing for competitions. Hope my success story will help other fellow mates to come over some grey areas.
1. Preparation strategy for different subjects:
I believe that strategy depends upon strength and weakness, you need to manage studies hours accordingly. In initials days, work on every part equally than after analysis of good and weak areas. Work more on weak areas and keep moving to higher level of good areas.
2. My strongest and weakest area. How did I overcome your weaknesses?
The only parameter to judge strong and weak areas are mocks and their analysis. I was comfortable with quantitative aptitude and reasoning part and because of my interest, they become my strong part. I was never a grammar nazi. But to get par marks you need to be good in every section as they now have equal time sets for them not like before. For the English part, I once completed my grammar than I keep working on the newspaper and mocks. I prefer practicing more than mugging up rules.
For quant and reasoning, concepts are key. First clear concepts of all topics, then start practicing and keep trying the difficult question. They help you to tackle good problems in mains exams.
For English, I personally feel practicing more with mocks and the sectional quiz is the shortcut. Go though rules once if required.
3. Difficulties I face while preparing for the IBPS RRB PO Exam?
I missed 2017 RRB PO prelims by 0.5 marks because of accuracy. This time I worked more on my accuracy. I was not able to make into the final list of IBPS PO 2017 by 2 marks because I just cleared the cut off of GA section by 2 marks, so this time I worked more on GA section to get an edge over others in RRB PO.
4. How did I manage pressure during the preparation?
I always believe that in such cut-throat competition self belief and determination is key. Keep tracking your daily performances and keep moving ahead. Always consider your favor as motivation to work more for next time.
5. My strategy in the last 2 weeks before the Main exam?
In the last two weeks, analysis of mocks and continuous revision of GA is the thing I did.
6. What role did Mock Tests, Previous Year Papers and Daily Quizzes play in my preparation?
Daily quizzes are very helpful for daily tracking of progress, mock test help to implement different strategies to maximize marks and to check your performance with other competitors.
7. The number of exams I was preparing during this preparation?
I completed my B.Tech in 2016 from the mechanical stream and then started preparing for defense entries TGC, SSC, CDS, AFCAT. I cleared exams but SSBs are key and CGL was a bit in hijacked position so I switched to banking in mid-2017. The defense was and will be my top priority.
8. My preparation strategy for Group Discussion and Personal Interview. How did my Group Discussion and Personal Interview go?
Interviews have there own importance and to master this confidence and knowledge is key. So, keep reading and speaking among the group of friends. It will help you to present yourself better in interviews and GD.
9. Advice to my fellow aspirants
