Bankers Adda Success Story

Name - Abhishek Patel
Discuss ID - Abhishek Patel
Qualification - (Electronics and communication Engg.)2015
Selected as Po in Central Bank of India 2017

I started my preparation for banking exams in 2015. Initially, I started with self study and given my first banking exam of RRB officer scale I reached to interview but failed to make in final merit list. Then I joined a near by coaching institute .

Since I belong to a lower middle-income family as my father is a farmer, there was immense pressure on me to get a decent job.

So after joining coaching I appeared in many of the bank exams and other exams but failed finally but I never loose hope. My family was very supportive to me and this helped me a lot.

The struggle I faced in preparation time helped me to get strong and face the challenges.

Below is the list of exams I appeared.

RRB Officer Scale I  2015( reached in interviews)

IBPS PO 2015 ( failed in sectional cut of maths in mains by 1 mark)

IBPS Clerk 2015 ( missed final selection by just 0.6 marks)

RBI Grade B 2015 ( missed pre-exam by 0.25 marks)

SBI clerk 2015-16 ( missed final selection by 1.25 marks)

SBI PO 2015-16 ( failed in pre)

UPSSSC junior assistant 2015 ( failed in typing test of Hindi)

IBPS PO 2016-17 Cleared etc.

My strength was always in reasoning and English section ( I scored 35 out of 40 in English section in SBI clerk and I have scored 18 marks in English section in IBPS PO 2016-17) my weakness was in general awareness section.

To improve my GA I always used bankers adda capsules and quizzes and these helped me to improve my GA section.

So finally, I want to thank my parents, God, Friends, Bankers adda team institute for my success.

All the very best to all the aspirants for their forthcoming exams!
