Name: Shakshi Garg

Designation: Probationary Officer in SBI (Batch 2019)

Hello everyone,

Sir, I would like to inform you that I have been selected for SBI PO 2019. I have been preparing for banking exams for the last 4 years. During this period I have also appeared for almost all the PO level exams conducted by various banks. I, however have also taken many exams of Public Insurance companies but each time I could not achieve the desired result. There were times when I failed by 2 marks or even 0.5 marks. This led to frustration and even took me at a point where I didn’t want to continue because of my past failures. I could not clear the final procedure for IBPS PO last year and scored only 14.7 marks in the interview.

Even while checking the final result this time, I was shivering completely but when I saw my Roll Number in the list of selected students, all those efforts seemed to pay off. A flashback of all the failures appeared and how those failures helped me to grow and finally clear this prestigious exam.

I want to thank Adda247 for being my guide and my mentor throughout my journey. All the mock tests and youtube classes were very helpful. The special interview batch by Anil Bhatnagar Sir helped me during my actual interview.

If you are the one who have found his/her name in the merit list, share your success story with your photograph to us. We will share your story with our readers. Mail us at or You will also get a chance to interact with Anil Nagar sir, CEO in Dare to Dream Season.
