“Take risks in Life. If you win, you can Lead. If you lose, you can Guide.” Dhandu Saikumar Reddy (IBPS Clerk, Andhra Bank)


I Dhandu Saikumar Reddy from Hyderabad. I have cleared IBPS Clerk mains examination in the first attempt and my first choice.  First, let me give some introduction about me. I am from a middle-class background. My father is an Auto driver and mother is Homemaker and have one sibling. Even though I was school topper, intermediate topper, college topper I didn’t get satisfied with my educational achievements. I have completed graduation in 2011-2015. I have got a job through campus placement in Wipro. I have worked until my bond period is completed and then I quit it. Because I am a person who is not craving or satisfied with money. Satisfaction supersedes over money for me. I felt my presence is not acknowledged. 

Whatever the money I earned I invested in preparing Government exams. From then I went to coaching in Karol Bagh, New Delhi. I have stayed there for four months and returned to hometown. 
I was unable to concentrate in the home because after leaving from your comfort zone (software industry) it is very difficult to set right your mind.Then I went to an institute in March. I didn’t even stay there for a week and returned to the home. 

I owe forever to my friend Praneeth Anurag, who motivated and stood for me and along with me in all these situations. He insisted me to purchase mock exams instead of going to coaching centers again. So, I took mock exams from Adda247.

My First exam is SBI PO 2017 prelims 
I got 40.75/100 and cut off was 51.50. I was able to clear individual sections but overall score was my main concern. I didn’t concentrate for exams from then onwards for two months, instead, I literally asked my friends, sibling, relatives to get me a job and even I have uploaded my resume in Naukri and even ready for BPO. At that time my brother comes in handy who motivated me and demanded me to complete my journey to the end until you get one.

Then I started preparing for SSC CGL 2017. In prelims, I got 99.5/200 and cut off 131/200. I have attempted IBPS RRB PO prelims exam 41.75/100 and cut off was 45.5/100. Next, IBPS RRB Office Assistant Prelims exam 70.25/80 and cut off was 57.75. But I couldn’t able to clear mains 113/200 and cut off was 123.56/200 moreover I didn’t clear sectional cut off in reasoning 16.25/40 and cut off was 17/40.

Next, IBPS PO prelims exam 44.5/100 and cut off was 42.75/100. In Mains exam 89.25/225 and overall score including interview marks 44.73/100 and cut off was 47.04/100. And IBPS SO IT officer prelims 93.75/125 and cut off was 89.88/125. In Main 25/60 and overall score including interview 47.13/100 and cut off was 50.93/100. IBPS Clerk prelims 84/100 and cut off was 69.75/100.In Mains 110/200 i.e., 55/100 and cut off was 49.97/100.

Now I tasted the success after struggling, facing criticism, hurdles with the help of my friend Praneeth Anurag and brother Vijay Basker. My journey is a long one I have started preparing from November 2016 to January 2018.

I won’t give suggestions how to prepare because Bankersadda and its channel are enough, but I would like to say don’t lose your patience, which is the Key instrument to the success but not knowledge or talent. I owe my sincere gratitude to Bankersadda website, Adda247 app, youtube channel. I believe in destiny. I had hope on PO but mains marks were less. God has some other plans.

My sincere request to those people who cleared exams it’s our responsibility to lend our hands to the future aspirants. And those who didn’t clear exams, remember even I am along with you for PO and SO IT officer. 

Remember the Vivekananda saying, 
“Take risks in LIFE. If you win, you can Lead. If you lose, you can Guide.”
