Hello everyone, I am HIMANSHU SHARMA, from MEERUT CITY, UTTAR PRADESH.
First of all, a big THANK YOU TO BA TEAM specially to those who make GK NOTES for us and those who used to upload them on site and do take our queries and provide us solutions to them.
I had done b.tech in E.I (electronics & instrumentation) with 64.10% marks in 2013. As every engineer dream to work in some MNC or somewhere in industry where he can achieve heights in career and name in society, I had also dreamed the same but recession ruined those dreams. After b.tech I tried in private sector but they were offering me 7k-12k job in Delhi-ncr and besides that work which an ITI candidate can do. I spent around 5 months in this process searching for a job but.. Finally I decided to go for gov't sector and changed my dream forcefully to clerk & willingly to PO (obviously after doing b.tech one doesn't wish to work in clerk job but in life you have to take many steps against your wishes). So when I decided so the time came for the 2013 PO exam and I gave it and for mathematics section I was left with no time, so it was screwed. Then I appeared for clerk (forcefully) and 5 days before the exam luckily I found BA site on internet when I was searching for GK questions. But 5 days were not enough and I got 89 marks clearing all subjects in exam. Now I came to know I have to give one year for preparation as ibps will conduct exams after around 7-8 months from now. That time was very frustrating for me sitting in home. So few days I used to think alot about all this, someday I got frustrated, some other day I tried to make up my mind to study but it was not easy at all, atleast for me because that frustration kills you almost. Well soon I made myself busy for SBI PO, RBI CLERK, RRB PO&CLERK, BOB MANIPAL PO, IBPS PO&CLERK, SBI CLERK, SBI ASSOCIATE CLERK, NIA OFFICER, NIA CLERK. But during this time also my emotions used to overcome my mind like a rollercoaster ride, sometimes they overtook my mind and sometimes I overtook those feelings.
While preparing for these exams I had taken BA test series for SBI PO and ibps PO. These speed tests and those GK capsules nourished me very well. And after facing few failures of SBI and RBI and Bob manipal, my time started changing and I started clearing exams and now the challenge was to make myself in the merit list.
So finally my results were like this:
- Ibps PO: 43 (0 in maths ;-))
- Ibps clerk: 89 (all sections cleared)
- SBI PO: 58 (all sections cleared)
- SBI CLERK: 111 (all sections cleared)
- Bob manipal PO: 58
- RBI clerk: 138 (all sections cleared)
- RRB PO: 123, PASS
- RRB clerk: 156, PASS
- SBI associate PO: did 120, failed, marks yet to come
- NIA OFFICER: did around 125, failed, marks yet to come
- NIA CLERK: did around 167, failed, marks yet to come
- IBPS PO: 78 (all sections cleared)
- IBPS CLERK: 143 (got Syndicate bank)
So this was my story.
Yeah I am still not so much happy with it because failed to achieve PO cutoff by 4 marks but next time surely I will achieve it in 2015 and will be PO in 2016 (feeling determined) and I know that I got this job with lots of efforts and hard times so I know it's value. So I had started working for it FORCEFULLY but today whatever it is I accept it WILLINGLY.
At last, I know it's BA site but I would like to thank somewhere to Mahendra institute also as I belong to Meerut city and had joined Mahendra in 2013(forcefully by parents) & in Jan-Feb-March, 3 months course again (willingly)..mahendra gave me starting but surely BA nourished me by it's GK power capsules and quizzes and test series.
Finally thanx to all BA TEAM, I don't know the names of the team members besides THE FAMOUS- "SHRUTI" MA'AM..thanx to all of you..!!
And thanx to my parents, who didn't forced me in career to go for any opportunity which I was getting after b.tech and gave me time to prepare for gov't exams.
With all of your blessings and my efforts, Next year I will write one success story again for PO (feeling determined :-))
"BE FOCUSED AND WORK HARD TO ACHIEVE ANY OPPORTUNITY"
