This week we are here with Shubham Verma’s success strategy who cleared SBI Clerk 2018. According to him, any coaching institute doesn’t teach you for competitive exams and it is a waste of time. Self study is what he relied on for clearing his exam. Let’s read what more he has to say.
Previous experience with Banking Exams and the Results!
I started my preparation from April 2018 but before that, I had appeared for banking exams but I never prepared for that as I was preparing for SSC CGL and when the SSC scam happened, it broke my dreams of getting a government job in any Ministry. As I said I had already appeared for banking exams in the past 2 years i.e from 2016-18 so I had some idea about the duration in which banking exams were being conducted and the whole recruitment process was done.
I made my mind that I am going to prepare for the toughest exam of banking in 2018 other than RBI Grade B i.e. SBI PO. So I joined a well-known coaching institute in Delhi (Rohini) because everyone said to me and my family members “sabka coaching se hee hota hai clear”. So without wasting my time to listen to their nonsense, I joined that institute and I was right about it that they actually don’t teach you for mains and institute is just for time waste. So after a week I stopped going there and started preparing by myself. I didn’t have money to buy another test series as I already wasted my money on that institute so I used my friends Practice Mock test series and gave mock tests religiously. And one more thing which I did was to always keep a tab on my Percentile rather than marks because I believe percentile is more important. Gradually my marks and moreover my percentile started getting better. So after giving some SBI PO mocks I became confident enough that, at least I will clear some banking exam this year. And that happened too when I saw my name in SBI CLERK 2018 final list on 21st September. Literally my hands were shivering as I was typing my roll number in the list. I crossed checked it twice before telling my mom because this was all because of her hard work and belief that I got a govt. job and that too in SBI. I am the first in my family who is in a government job.
How Did PracticeMock help you?
PM helped me a lot. I really would like to thank PM from the bottom of heart; Thanks PM for my success and wish all the good luck that they will grow more and help students like me. With PM you don’t have to go to any coaching institute. Just believe in yourself and analyse your performance in mock tests and clear your concepts.
