This is Vicky Kumar, from Hazaribagh (A small town of Jharkhand). I have completed my BCA in 2015 from St. Columba's college Hazaribagh. I have cleared both ibps po 5 and ibps clerk 5 in my very first attempt. I got selected in Vijaya Bank as PO and in Bank of India as clerk. I am going to join Vijaya Bank.
My Inspiration and Motivation
I am from a lower middle class. After doing my BCA, I appeared for NIMCET and I had secured a seat in NIT Jamshedpur in MCA. I cannot afford admission due to financial problems.
So, I along with my father approached a bank for Education loan, But, the bank refused to pay my initial fees and manager said that I had to pay my first year fee (which is around 1.3 lakhs, including hostel charges), and only after admission he would approve my loan. My father was very disappointed. That time my father said " Beta, Tum bank manager nhi ban sakte ho, kya Tum eligible ho banane k lie??? "(Son, can you a bank manager, are you eligible for that ??)
I said "Ban sakata hu Papa, Aur banunga" (Papa, I can, and I will)
And, then I decided to start preparing for bank exams
I started my preparation in last week of July 2015, first of all I searched for pattern, previous year cut-offs and types of questions from YouTube and different sites. And, then I analysed what I have to study and how to study. I made a strategy and follow that till my selection. In August, I studied the major portion of reasoning, Quant and English. I am pretty good in Maths , so
Quant was quite easy for me, I only keep practicing it.
For reasoning, I prefer to practice previous year questions, and it was quite useful.
For English, I prefer reading and it becomes better day by day.
For Current affairs and GA I was fully Dependable on bankersadda, and it really helps me.
In and After, September I mainly focused on given online test and its proper analysis . I tried to find out my weakness and sort out it in next test, in this process I became better and better.
I had attempted almost 50-60 test of pre and 20-25 test of mains. And, it does give me an edge.
