"Never Give Up until The Dreams comes TRUE": Arpita Bishnu (UBI PO) - 24

Bankers Adda Success Story

I am a very general student from school life.
Graduation (Physics-Honours) in 2010 with 54.5%
did not opt for M.Sc as I understood I'm already out of track. Further moving on that way nothing good will be achieved.

Changed stream & completed MCA in 2013
was not interested in private job started preperation for banking job and joined Mahendras Coaching 3 months course
1st IBPS PO 2013 failed to secure cut off by 2 marks in online exam
2nd IBPS Clerk 2013 Written cleared by 16 marks bt failed to be selected in interview by .3 mark only
Felt almost hopeless. At that time my sister passed B.Tech and selected in TCS. It created a huge mental pressure on me. After some days started with greater momentum.
But this year Failed IBPS PO 2014 written by 5 marks
IBPS Clerk 2014 managed to clear written by 2 marks but failed to be selected finally which was quite obvious.
seeing my deteriorated condition I was about to give up.
But my parents and sister supported me and told me to achieve my dream.
This time I was quite motivated and started preperation following bankersadda website
cleared SSC CGL Prelim
cleared SSC HS Prelim
cleared IBPS PO 2015 Prelim, Mains, failed after Interview as my Main marks and Main cut off marks same
cleared CWE CLERK 2015 prelim but could not get through Mains by 3 marks as no interview and cut off was very high.

Appeared SBI CLERK 2016...cleared Prelim and appeared in Mains
In the mean time got married...after that in the beginning it was quite tough for me to manage my family responsibilities and studies simultaneously. I never wasted a single moment. And finally I got selected as UBI PO in IBPS PO 2016

My preparations:

Reasoning ability
It is getting tough year by year... So never be overconfident to just follow some tricky methods to win... At the time of exam it may not work... So prepare urself for harder question... bankersadda quiz is ideal to follow and career power test series helped me a lot to evaluate my condition and make it more better

It is getting lengthy year by year... So again never be too much confident to just follow some tricky ways to win... Try to enhance your speed... Only practice can give u better result... So practice as much as possible... I followed Bankersadda daily quiz... Didn't miss a single one

I am very weak in english vocabulary but grammar is quite strong... somehow managed by this skill... But one must to be strong in vocabulary also

General Awareness:
Bankersadda is the 1st and last solution. but preperation should be done from the very 1st day of preperation... can not be managed by short period study... So prepared daily current affairs daily basis method, revised it each and every day and before xm followed the capsule published by bankersadda...got 80% question common

As i am a MCA student it was never a trouble to me

Finally my spoken english was very poor. But I tried a lot. 1month continuous self created practice interview in front of mirror helped me to cross the last hurdle which was toughest for me....

At the end of the day only self-confidence, self-belief and try can bring a success....

A lot of thanks to bankersadda and adda247 team and to all my family members (my husband, In-laws, own parents and my sweet supportive sister)
