Succcess Story of Bhalachandra Barade Selected as IBPS Clerk in Bank of India

Hello Everyone,

I am Bhalachandra Barade, My journey started in 2016 after completion of B.Tech and as I am an average student so decided to prepare for banking and other competitive exams only by myself, I didn’t join any classes.

How did I prepare?

I prepared from online platforms – YouTube Adda247 and (I don’t have to say what you should watch, whatever you like just watch, Everyone has own strategy) but the best channel is Adda247 it has the best team and best strategy.

I followed Anchal mam’s lectures for English and Sumit sir for Quant 

My Strategy :

  •  I followed Adda’s Daily Quizzes for Practice.
  •  1 full length mock(daily) to analyze my preparation where I’m standing.
  •  Watched Adda247 YouTube Videos – 2 hours to clear my concepts in weak sections.

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality, and duplicate it.”
