I am Shivam Pandey
. I completed my B.tech in 2017 may. IBPS declared its result recently. I have qualified in every single paper I gave this year in my first attempt. I am sharing my story for the fellow gradians. In july, I joined a private firm but resigned in August. From 15th August
'2017 , I started my preparations on my own. I knew that if I got my basics right, I can do well.
Strategy for Success -
Firstly I analysed previous year papers. I got to know that many topics can be mastered within a small span of time and that also constitutes a large portion of Marks like DI. So, I started building my basics and started to give mock from the 1st day of preparation. I clearly remember that I got 5.75 marks in my first free mock of RRB PO Of Gradeup only. But I didn't panicked and continued with my preparation . Now I will describe my strategy for different sections.
I have analysed, many of the aspirants are lacking in this subject only. I completed Plinth To Paramount by Neetu Singh mam and started to read The Hindu daily. I didn't get the time to read the whole paper but i made sure that editorials must be completed. I read a lot during that time so as to increase my speed of reading.
I clearly analysed that students don't practice miscellaneous part well. So, I thought that I can change the game in my favour in this section only. So, I started building my concepts for miscellaneous questions. And that paid a lot in my case. In most of the prelims, I got 30+. I referred to YouTube for my preparation . You can watch any teacher because all are same. You have to analyse from whom you can understand better.
I don't think anyone needs suggestion in this section. It can only be mastered by practice.
I followed current affairs daily show and made proper day to day notes of it. At every month end, i downloaded Gradeup Tornado and one famous site GA capsule and try to memorize as much as i can. Believe me, nothing in the exam comes out of these two.
And now comes the most important part- MOCK TESTS -
I gave around 200 mocks before PO pre. I know it may sound like a hyperbole, but it's the truth. I purchased every mock of PO pre be it Gradeup or any other famous mocks available to us. I gave all the mocks of all the main websites of exam prepartion.
For mains, I only bought Gradeup and Oliveboard.
Gradeup has played a huge part in my journey. I still remember the nights when i gave gradeup mini Mocks and got 2/5 and then again i used to give mini Mocks until i get 5/5 the same day. It was fun and it helped me seriously. Thankyou Gradeup.
But I am not leaving this platform after selection. You all can tag me anytime with any kind of query and I will answer them at the earliest. Let's make the world a better place.
