Success Story of Jyoti Daga Selected in EPFO SSA and IBPS Clerk 2019

Hello Everyone,

I am Jyoti Daga, a 2015 pass out, B. Tech graduate from JIET Jodhpur. As a normal graduate, I too had a red mark in my mark sheet of Vth sem (never before that) which affected my placements in the VIIth sem.

Journey: From Darkness to IBPS clerk

So I am one who didn’t have any placement. I Was back home by that time and started preparation for CAT at home, appeared for Elitmus, but failed deliberately and lost all confidence. Due to some problems at home, I started working in 2016 till Dec 2018 as a Recruiter but didn’t love it though. 

January 2019 is where I started my preparation. But until life doesn’t put you in dark you don’t seek the light. From January to May I was not at all serious for my exams, no will, no hard work, everything was just going with laziness at par. 

Sometimes when you’re in a dark place, you think you’ve been buried but you’ve been planted. 

It was May 2019 when I started my preparation with full-on enthusiasm. Day or night, whenever I had even 5 minutes, I studied. I cleared my first prelims in June, SBI Clerk, and as it was my first mains with lots of parallel prelims lined up, I prepared within 4 days for SBI clerk mains and didn’t cleared it, was lagging 10 marks less from the cutoff. 

I appeared for every exam, be it Ibps PO/Clerk, RRB PO/Clerk, LIC assistant, EPFO Assistant, EPFO SSA, SBI Clerk, SBI PO, CWC warehousing, RBI assistant, just name it. Cleared prelims of SBI Clerk, RRB PO, Ibps Clerk, Ibps PO, LIC assistant, EPFO SSA. Had back to back mains within 2 months and was demoralized by not clearing them. RRB PO mains was not cleared by ‘.25’ the sectional cutoff in reasoning, IBPS PO mains by not clearing sectional cutoff of Quant section, SBI clerk mains by 10 marks less than the cutoff. But perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding 20th. So I cleared LIC assistant mains but in the impaneled list. I only failed prelims of RBI assistant by ‘0.25’ marks less than cut off.I was happy to appear on that list. That was the boost. Then I cleared EPFO SSA and IBPS Clerk.

Strategy For Prelims and Mains Exam:

For Prelims:

Quantitative Aptitude: cleared basics from Rakesh Yadav book, solved every time I was stuck on any concept. Daily revision of tables( till 22), squares (1-50), cubes (1-25), formulas. Practiced from Mock tests.

Reasoning Ability: Learned Syllogism concept by Youtube channel. Practice from daily Mock test.

English Language:  Easy for some and difficult too. My English was good being in the CBSE board. Read Newspapers daily. Prefer ‘The Hindu’ for reading habit if you want to learn sentence formation with good grammar. 

For Mains

Quant, Reasoning, English: Mock tests are enough, they have a very good level. online platforms knows when you need to be in the sky and when on the ground. 

General Awareness:

Adda247 was my source of reading GK and Practice mock was for daily quiz and GK questions. Most important thing: Take fewer sources, but take reliable ones and stick to them, trust them, trust yourself before you start, you will surely succeed. 

I want to Thank you Adda 247 for the standard of the tests you have given us. I so relied on them for every prelim, every mains. Can’t thank you enough for your help.
