Hey Fellow Aspirants,
First of all, I am thankful to my family (especially my Chachu, who guided me on every turn), friends & all of those who are a part of my success. I’m also thankful to Adda247 Team for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself.
My name is Pawan Kumar Sharma & I’m from Hoshiarpur, Punjab. I got selected in SBI as Junior Associate. It feels amazing to share my success story with you guys. During my preparation, when I used to go through the success stories of achieves at Adda247, I always ended up pondering over mine.
I hope my success story could be of little help to the banking aspirants.

This exam basically tests your aptitude. This exam lies somewhere between “A hard nut to crack” and “not easy as a cakewalk”. Anyone with decent preparation can crack this exam. Give time to your friends, family, hobby and everything you like and adding all this time equivalent to studies. Being calm and relaxed improves your focus, with focus, speed and efficiency. So take out some time to calm and relax. I did everything during my preparations but I never forget about my preparations. Everyone has their own strengths, in my case, it was GA and English, thanks to my reading habit that consumes my most of the time. Newspapers are best to enhance both English and GA.
For quant or Reasoning, I attempted sectional quizzes that are freely available on Adda247 & Try to secure a rank in b/w top 100.
Starters done!! and now the Main course i.e.Mock tests. I used to take mock tests in every 2-3 days to take a check on my preparation and tracking my mistakes. Test series helped me a lot and it’s daily quizzes helped in boosting my speed. For GA, I referred Ashish Gautam sir’s daily current affairs show and Piyush Sir’s important MCQ series.
My Future Plans-
I’ll continue as a banker and will explore myself & I’ll also continue my studies to prepare for NABARD And RBI.
Massage to Fellow Aspirants –
Remember One Thing, “Attitude is Everything”. Whatever marks you were scoring in mocks just forget it and enter in the exam hall with an attitude that you are always a winner. Think like this exam is just a piece of cake and you will definitely cut it.
So Guys keep trying & Best of luck!!!
