During this period in 2016, I took weekend classroom program in Munirka branch under Radhey sir and Team. Wrote all IBPS and SBI PO exam but was missing by margins. This was the time it clicked me to give it a dedicated try in 2017. Hence Resigned in July 2017.

Real Journey starts here:-
Took Santosh Kumar Sir video course from ADDA247 for my maths Basic and Advanced for SSC CGL exams. Still those notes are my pillars during every exams revision.

Exams in 2017:-
SSC CGL – Out in prelims.
IBPS RRB PO & IBPS RRB Clerk – Out in prelims in both.
SBI PO & IBPS Clerk – out in prelims in both.
IBPS PO – Cleared Prelims but could not write mains due to some family issue.
IBPS Clerk – Out in mains by 6 marks (My bad luck as they didn’t give rough sheets just plastic page for rough work)

Exams in 2018 – (crossed 28 years age)
Eagerly waited for SSC CGL but exams postponed due to court case. So banking exams were the only options I had now.

SBI PO –  out in pre by 1.5 marks
IBPS RRB PO – Cleared prelims, mains(+12 Marks above cut-off), Interview (85 Marks. Attended T.C. Jain Interview classes in Munirka branch) & ultimately in reserved list on 1st January 2019.
IBPS PO – Cleared Prelims, Mains (+9 marks above cut off) and interview (55 Marks Noida panel) and finally out by overall 4 marks.
NIACL Assistant – cleared pre (95.5 marks) & cleared mains (176 marks) but lagged in merit list finally by 5 marks.

Exams in 2019: My last attempt year as I will be 30 in December 2019. So I had no option other than getting at least one job. It all started again with SSC CGL again which was of 2018 session actually.

SSC CGL –  T1(176 marks) , T1+T2(461 marks), Written T3 but i know i will not make it to final list. So again switched to banking.

SBI PO –  Cleared pre, out in mains by 1.5 marks as I had SSC CGL mains in the same week of SBI po mains. Anyhow I was happy with my performance in SBI PO mains which was missed just because of GA section which I didn’t prepare well.

IBPS RRB PO – Out in pre itself as I did not practice well.
IBPS PO – Cleared Prelims and Mains. Interview awaited in Jan 2020 end.
LIC Assistant – Result awaited with 158 attempt in mains.

Finally the reserve list of 2018 was cleared on 31st December 2019 and got allotted under Officer scale 1 in Baroda UP Grameen Bank in Uttar Pradesh.

Going through many ups and downs, success and failures, I reached more and more close to my journey goal. The goal to not return back in IT sector jobs/private jobs, the goal to have a respectful life, a settled life where there is job security, where there is job satisfaction, where there is public services.

In this struggle, I got married too in 2016 and was blessed a beloved son (Vanish) in October 2016 end. This son of mine is my real fire, zeal, enthusiasm and all my future energies and strategies will be aimed at his overall development. My family was a true source of inspiration for me with my Dad being my real hero, my Mommy being my torchbearer and my wife being my motivator. What I learnt in life is “The growing responsibility refines us to move more positively towards our goal and enthusiasm.”

I have still to go and will keep on improving myself in my day to day life. Remember for thousands of failures, there is just one success so always keeps your heads turned up for that one success. Failure is part of life but success is destination.
