Name – Sachin 

Place- Shimla, UCO Bank, Zonal Office, Near-Himland Hotel 


Time – 8:30 am 

Panel – 2 
My turn came around 10 o clock and it rests between 7-10 minutes. 

1st process was documentation and done in few minutes. 


There are 5 members in my panel including one lady and I greeted all of them. 
They start the interview and 1st question was tell us about yourself and I explained it and in the end told that I also work with an NGO and they ask me more about this NGO that how it works and I explained 

As I mentioned about my hobbies in my introduction that include reading,writing and working with an NGO. 


So, some of the next questions were from reading side that what u read and I told autobiographies and the latest one include of Sachin Tendulkar and one member ask some question like his highest score,his 1st and last one day and I am not sure about both i.e 1st and last one day but I said its Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and told his highest score 248 in test match and also asked about his total century i.e 100 I explained. 


On reading side they asked about the latest autobiography and  I told it is of Soina Gandhi and named Red Sari and remember only 1st name of writer i.e Xavier and couldn’t explained why it was in controversy as congress was against it. For this question answer thanks to BankersAdda Latest GK Update Capsule that I downloaded yesterday otherwise my answer would be Sorry, sir I don’t know. 


Other questions are- 


Q – Crrency and Capital of Bangladesh? 

– Explained 


Q – Currency of japan and its value against rupee 

– I explained currency  but don’t know its value against rupee. 


– As I had submitted training certificate of Bhusan power and steel Ltd one member asked recently it was in news  way? 

– I provided them with the answer. 


– Lady member asked me 2 questions i.e one CM of Goa and CM of Delhi

-Explained 


– As I also submitted one certificate of Disaster management  so they asked how will u save disaster in bank? 

– It was not best explained 1st I told of cyber threat than one panel member told me no that they mean how will you protect like bank building from disaster. I don’t know anything about it I told them that project I made was late back in school and it was based on water treatment from industry. It seemed to be case of misunderstood question.


Q – One member asked me full form of USPA as I was wearing  sweater of this brand? 

– explained 

They also asked me about Chandigarh as I was brought up there and asked something about it like who designed it, and its other name and its famous places. I explained all it. 



They asked last question about how your NGO raise funds and I explained that its small NGO and organize small events that didn’t cost much and ask peoples and contribute form our own sources. 


I wonder as they didn’t asked a single financial question from me but thanks to them from heart that they didn’t ask it otherwise I have to say all the time these magical words “Sorry, Sir I don’t know”. 


Overall interview was gone good in my opinion but can’t say about panel members opinion. 

And in the end thanks to Bankersadda & all other people who helped me in any of the way and lets wait for the result.


Whatever u speak just be aware of that.


Baki Bam Bam Bhole chod mohmaya usi sang ho le…

All the best!!!

Hello Readers,
Here we are presenting to you the Interview Experience of Pranaw Kumar , one of the bright reader of BA!! Hope you like the post!!!


I came to know about Bankersadda on the day of RRB exam in Gurgaon when I saw a guy reading gk capsule. Since then I visit BA daily and hv cleared IBPS PO , Clerk though I don’t take part in unnecessary chats.


My interview was on 21st of Jan at 1:00 o’clock. I reached the venue by 12:10. Guards called everyone to be in queue with OBC certificate in hand. Then officers checked strictly and line by line, some guys rejected on the spot.



Then in seminar hall all gathered and told us to arrange documents written on whiteboard and sent us to respective rooms for paper verification.

2 men in 50s were checking paper very strictly and they were rude to some people asking is it only you attended exam, how much you attempted. Half of the interview they took.


15 minutes for paper verification. Then waiting room. 


Guard came inside room and tried ease us out. “Beta sab budhe purane log hain interview lene, kisiko kuchh nahi aata, wo log aapse sikhenge, koi tension nahi lijiye, aram se boliyega”.

Name – Ravi
Position – IBPS Bank PO
Date – 22/01/2015
Venue – Grand JBR Hotel, Lucknow
Time – 8.30 am

After the documentation that took 5 minutes I was asked to go for the interview upstairs in panel no 3. It was so fast that I could hardly recollect all my papers and I expected some time to be given after the document verification.

As soon as I reached the room with catching breath, the peon said aao aao jaldi aao ….. I said – Arey ruk ja mere bhai thoda pani pi lene de zara!!

After 2 minutes I went inside –

There were 5 panelist –

4 males + 1 female

I entered and wished them.

The head of the panel said where is your beard?

I was like what? He said you like to keep beard right? I was finding it amusing then I realized that in the photograph I had little beard.

I laughed and said yes!

First I was bombarded with personal Questions – 

M1 + M2 – You have completed your class 12th in 2004? This is 2015? What did you do for so long?

Answer – I worked in BPO’s for 4 years at Gurgaon.

M1 + M2 – Which school? What does your father do? Why did you start working so early soon after intermediate? Why didn’t you complete your graduation then? Why in 2014?

Answer – Army public School. My father is a retired Army personnel. After my intermediate I dropped a year to prepare for medical entrance unfortunately I did not clear and decided to move out and work somewhere to gain some work experience.

Then came school education questions

M3 – You studied Biology in class 12th? Tell me what is appendix? How much blood is in human body? What is the length of small intestine? Is a light passes through a prism at 60 degree angle what kind of image does it form?

Answer – Sir Appendix has something to do with digestive system.

I don’t remember the quantity of blood in our body but I is in liters and may be 5 to 6 liters.

I don’t remember the length of our intestine but it’s in meters. Everyone laughed.

I have no idea about the prism question.

Then came graduation question

M4 – They were almost surprised to see an arts student? You studied political science in graduation? Tell me what are directive principles of state policy? What is parliamentary form of government? What is the difference between US & Indian democratic setup? Once someone said that in UK parliament a man can be made a women and women can be made man? What do you understand by this?

Answer – Gave all the answers appropriately.

Then at last some questions related to economy?

M5 – What is current account deficit? How does it increase?

What is disinvestment? Why is it done?

Answer – Gave convincing answers.

Thank you.

Suggestions – 

Please do not read or study anything a day prior to interview. Relax as much as you can. Never ever try to open even a page on the interview day. Do not talk to anyone unnecessarily at the venue. Don’t even think that you have come for an interview. The reason I am giving you this advice is no matter how prepared you are you may not even be asked a question on what you have studied. The result is you have lot of things going on in your mind and that makes you fumble and nervous. Be confident, gracious and courteous in your answers and gestures. Please give you feedback on my interview experience.

All the best Ravi!!!

Interview Experience – IBPS PO 2014 – The Silent Energy

Hello Readers,
Here we are presenting to you the Interview Experience of The Silent Energy, one of the bright reader of BA!! Hope you like the post!!!

Interview center- Dehradun
God sent an Angel to rescue an agnostic.
I reached the venue at 8.30 am. They checked my document and said your provisional degree date is December 14, you are not allowed to sit, I explained them that I had already cleared all exams before June. So I’m technically eligible. It’s because of university’s carelessness, I applied for degree and consolidated in June, but they didn’t publish it. I gave them old mark sheet, a letter from college, a court affidavit. But they denied, I pleaded, pleaded and pleaded more. But they were not even listening to me. 

I was 16th in the morning session. I was upset, I was frustrated, angry on my university, on my college. I couldn’t help. Never felt so helpless. I didn’t even realize that I haven’t had water or food since last night. I was in agony. Left the venue at 1 o clock, called my dad. Told him that I’m sorry for that. He said its ok beta. Everything happens for a reason. I felt better, but still in agony.
Finally at 5 I went for a tea. There was an uncle. He asked me about my mood,
“Beta bahut paresaan lag rahe ho. Interview dene ayye the. Kya hua?”
I explained everything to him and then came his words.
“Beta bhagwan pe bharosa karte ho?” He was asking an agnostic, I didn’t reply.
“Beta bhagwan pariksha leta hai, itni mehnat ki hai tumne, thoda or sabar rakho, bhagwan abhi bhi test kr raha hai. Jao ek baar or jao. Try karo. Explain karo unhe”
I said thanks uncle. He smiled and left.
At 6 I went back to the venue. Then there came a new senior HR person, he was not for my panel. He was looking cooperative. I went to him. Explained A to Z to hi. He checked my documents, stared them for at least 5 minute. Asked me to wait. Went to his colleagues. I could heard him.
“Tum log ise allow kyu ni kar rahe, publish date 12 December hai, but upar june likha hai. Don’t ruin someone’s career.” He came back to me, still frustrated me, was not optimistic.
He came back with a smile. “U can attend interview” I almost cried.” Went to washroom immediately. Looked in the mirror. My eyes were wet. Checked my newly bought suit, has become dirty. My white shirt was looking really pathetic. I didn’t care. I thought at least I am attending the interview now. 
I was 2nd last candidate in the evening. My turn came at 7.30 pm. Interview was above avg. Not great. Won’t go in the detail. As I was already tired. But I was happy. When I came back, in all the way to back home, I was thinking only one thing “God sent that uncle for me? was he trying to give me a msg?” 
I don’t know what will be final result, but I’m really happy. I learnt my lesson. No more an agnostic. Theist I am.
No matter what happen, never ever give up. Don’t loose your hope. I gave my best, rest is on him, he the almighty. 
P.S.-  At venue you will meet so many idiot, who will try to demoralize you. Don’t listen to them. Just focus on yourself. 🙂 all the best to all of you.
