"Life is Hard but not Impossible": Neeta Shinde (IBPS Clerk, Bank of Maharashtra)


"Opportunities don't happen. You create them": Deepali Sharma (IBPS PO & Clerk, Canara Bank)

Hi Team,

This is Neeta shinde from Maharashtra. I am 2014 pass out average B.tech graduate student. The banking was never my field and when I completed my engineering, was aimless like a row mud. I got a job in TCS through campus placement, so I joined TCS in January 2015 and at that time I was not aware about the banking exams. After entering IT field, I came to know how is the life of IT guy, 9.30 hour duty+ extended not counted hours, client timelines, office politics, no personal growth and money but with no satisfaction. My brother cleared RBI assistant 2015 exam and observing his life so closely, my interest had stared shifting to banking jobs. I failed many exams and my exam summary as below - 

IBPS SO 2016- failed in reasoning
IBPS SO 2017- failed in reasoning and English (high time for self-realization)
IBPS RRB clerk 2017- out in mains by 2 marks
IBPS RRB PO 2017- out in mains
IBPS PO 2017- out in prelims
RBI assistant 2017- got 73/100 but not Selected for mains (don't know the exact cutoff for general category)
IBPS SO IT 2017- got 79/125, but not cleared cutoff
IBPS clerk - cleared, got 102/200 and alloted to Bank of Maharashtra (BOM)

Initially my focus was on IBPS SO only, so due to lack of practice and inconsistency I couldn't make them. I realised, in order to clear po/RBI level exams , I need to practice more and my 100% focus should be on study and so I left my job in Feb 2018 and preparing for upcoming exams.

Due to busy office schedule, I used to get less time to study and I used those time as below -
Travelling morning 1 hour - BA daily current affairs show, daily tests
Evening 1 hour - reasoning/ maths practice
Office break time - library for news reading, you tube videos.
Half hour before bed - static GK , tables, square , math formulas, 
Weekends - online mock test, offline bsc magazine GK match points, highlights and tests.

For all working and non working aspirants,  I can only say "Never give up". Your day will come, keep trying keep improving every day. With your every failure, leave your any bad habit which is taking you away from your dream. It will make you pro to make your dreams. And most importantly do not wait for someone else to motivate you, self motivation matters most. Keep motivating yourself every day by imaging good about your dream job and your dream life. 

I know this is not an individual great achievement, but life has a long way to go and we yet to achieve many more things. .!!

Thank you,
Neeta Shinde.
