Previous experience with Banking Exams and the Results!
I started preparing for bank exams from June 2017. After completing my syllabus batch within 3 months I dropped for nine months which was actually a wrong decision. The same year I gave 5 papers out of which I cleared 2 Prelims and the other 3 were dropped by short margins. The next year I restarted in June 2018 with the syllabus batch and cleared 6 Prelims except SBI PO. I was short by 30 marks each in my first six Mains and by 10 marks in the next four Mains. At last in 2018-19 IBPS Clerk, I was short by 2 marks in Mains. Again back in 2019, I was short by 1 mark in the final selection of SBI PO. But this time in my 13th Mains, I cracked it and succeeded as an SBI junior associate.
Preparation Strategies for English, Quant, Reasoning, Current Affairs & General Awareness
There is no substitute other than reading newspaper and magazines to improve your english. This even improves G. English helps in group discussion and Interview as well. For quant, go through topics and attempt multiple quizzes. Same should be done for reasoning also. Download PracticeMock app for attempting quizzes which are updated on daily basis.
What was the strategy you adopted in preparing for the exam? What was your study schedule? What were the major hurdles you overcame
I studied daily for 4-5 hours. These were the effective hours for which I used to study. After my studies when i used to leave the table it used to make me felt that yes i have done something. I was weak in reading but still I kept on reading. Quant was the subject that helped me in qualifying the exam. If you are very strong in these two subjects out of the four you can still succeed by being average in other two.
How PracticeMock helped you?
I have been continuously following PracticeMock because this is the most updated app for preparing bank exams. Its daily quizzes and mocks are relevant to what I have been facing in my Prelims and Mains.

I just want to say that I was an average student in my entire academic career. So if I can do this means anybody can do this. Preparing for the exams is actually a leisure if u take it like that. I have always learnt from my mistakes and my failures have always motivated me. Just keep going and next will be your turn to write a success story.
