Pallab Pratim Dalui (IBPS Clerk, Canara Bank) Howrah, West Bengal

The amazing journey started in the year 2016. My first exam was SBI clerk. I joined a coaching institute in Kolkata. Without completing the whole syllabus I scored 119 marks in SBI Clerk mains, but General cutoff was 131. I couldn't qualify but still, it gave a positive kick. After classroom coaching, I started preparation at my home. I gave total 11 exams before IBPS Clerk selection.

Sbi clerk pre-2016 ( got 68.5 cutoffs 51.5 but couldn't crack main)
SBI PO 2016 ( out in pre by 0.25 marks)
RRB PO 2016 ( out in pre by 1.25)
IBPS PO 2016 ( out in pre by 0.25 English)
Ibps clerk 2016 ( cleared pre with 82.75 marks cutoff was 70, but couldn't crack main, failed by 3.5 marks)
Sbi Po 2017 ( qualified on pre but failed in main)
Niacl assistant 2017  ( qualified in pre but failed in main score 151.57)
Rrb po '17 ( couldn't clear main)
Rrb clerk ( failed on pre, got 63.5 cutoff was 67 in West Bengal)
Rbi assistant ( failed in pre by 0.5 marks, my score 86 cutoff was 86.5)
Ibps clerk ( qualified in pre 80.75 marks & selected in CANARA BANK  ---- West Bengal General cutoff was 108.94 my score 115.94)

Strategy:  GA >> This section is the deciding factor. I attempted 41 questions scored 38.5, which helped me to crack main. I used to collect daily updates from BANKERSADDA, and from other sites ...Made a note on Static GK & static banking. Weekly revision helped me to boost up confidence.

Quant: Firstly, I cleared my basics. Then i practiced easy level questions from the previous yearbook, After that, I practiced daily quizzes from Adda247 app.

Reasoning: after clearing fundamentals, I practiced different types of question from adda247, Be cool minded in the exam hall. Reasoning will be a surprise section. Read the instructions carefully & solve it.

English: truly speaking I got less time for English. Still, I practiced from the Adda247 app. 

I gave ST for prelims...I didn't give st fir clerk main. Rather I brushed up my concept again & gave the sectional test. 

Thank you all.
