Success Story - Rohit Saxena (IBPS PO -3 Bank Of India)

My name is Rohit Saxena and I'm from Rajasthan. 

I have completed BCA in 2009.I have started preparing for bank exams in 2012. I used to prepare Quant and Reasoning from R.S. Agrawal books,general awareness and banking from  and news papers and English from Lucent book.I used to study 12 hours a day but with lack of planning. I just used to sit in my room and practice all reasoning and Apti chapter wise but did not give any practice tests.
But when i got to know that practice test are very good for banking exams, I created my accounts on 2 websites for practise test and then start appearing for my practise test and my result was 60 marks or less. Then I have decided to prepare more wisely for my main exam and decided to write practice test everyday. I have divided the time 12 hours in 6 slots for English,aptitude ,reasoning,banking,general awareness and computers with most of the time allotted to Quant, Reasoning, and banking awareness(online mostly).
I wanted the target to be realistic (like I wanted to complete only 30 questions and focused on my strengths in each topic). Neither I prepared the topics which I was not good at nor I attempted them in the exam.I studied for a minimum 10 hours a day giving more preference for banking and GA cause those sections are easy scoring and less time consuming subsequently you'd get more time for other sections.

My target was to attempt 140 question and to get 125 marks at least out of it. I practiced keeping in mind the above target.But in the exam I could attempt only 103 question as question paper was too lengthy and difficult. After my exam I was too much worry about my result but as per the prediction of the websites and students views on the online portals i was somewhat confident for my result and when the results came I got short listed for interview and I got 84 marks in written. And I had a good interview in Sector-62, Noida (Bank of India) for about 20 minutes with questions on my background, banking industry and computer knowledge.
Finally I did it and got my name in my final list of selected candidates.
