Never ever give up on your dreams and life goals: Success Story

BA discuss name: Spiro
This is not a success story, it is a short note that might inspire Students a lot, It is a story of ups and down and again standing up against all odds. 
My journey for bank exam started from 2 June 2014, I prepared hard for IBPS RRB, PO and clerk exam. I appeared in RRB exam in September 2014 and I cleared both RRB PO and clerk ,I was very happy because It was my first bank exam , My first success , but it went in vain because I didn’t get interview call from any bank because of my  low score.

Success Story: Abhishek Srivastava

Hi Folks,

My name is Abhishek Srivastava . I am a 2014 (EEE) passout. I got placed with the very first company which came for campus placement in my college.I am currently working with the same MNC. Initial months at work were really good but as the time passed i realized that i do not belong here. So i finally decided to prepare for banking exam as i have already appeared for it in past during my free time after my engineering was completed  and i started working. But the biggest challenge now  was how to maintain a balance between the preparation & work in the office for around 10 hours a day. So finally i prepared a TO  DO LIST and worked on it.

Now before i tell you about my preparation strategy let me tell you about my failures.

  • SBI Associate PO(Disqualified)
  • IBPS-PO-IV (Missed Cut-Off by 2 Marks)(No matter if i would have got those 2 marks but still would have not made to the final.)
  • SBI-PO(Disqualified in Pre).
  • IBPS-PO-V (Pre-56.5),(Mains-104.5), (Overall-55)           

Final Allotment (Union Bank of India)

Preparation Strategy 

Quantitative Aptitute

Focus on DI part the Most. It can help you to get a decent score. As i was short of time i could not focus on solving problems from books but you can prefer Sarvesh Kumar if you want to clear concepts.

General Awareness

  • Quizzes of Bankers Adda of last three months before appearing for exam.
  • Bankers Adda Exam Capsules are a Sanjeevani & a must.
  • Quizzes of last three months.
  • Basic & clear Understanding of Banking terms.
  • Read The HIndu on daily basis if possible it will help you in GA & English too.


Make this section your strong hold it won't betray you but make sure you are prepared enough with the new sets of Questions & not just the traditional ones.

Go for online lectures for each topic to clear your concepts & if you want book to practice go for MK Pandeygo for  practice the toughest of them so you don't have a pitfall in exam.
Bankers Add Daily Quizzes is a must.


Sorry but i can not help you much in this section as i read a lot(NOVELS) from my college days so this section has not been much of concern did not prepared separately for this section best thing is to focus on Cloze test it will surely help you to clear the cut-off if you are not good at it. Second thing is the comprehension part try to score well in this. Develop a reading habit without bothering much about the meaning in the first go. Gradually you will improve.

If you have plenty of Time you can prefer SP Bakshi.

Warning: Guys if you follow all the above mentioned strategy & You do not take On-line CBT it will be all in vain. It is the key and a prerequisite.Join Career Power or Mahendra.

Note: At any point of time do not get emotionally attached to your preparation it will land you nowhere. Guys please understand It all about competency if you are competent enough you will get success else not. So stay focused and win.

" Be humble, Be hungry: Success Story

Ba id- Kush
Name- Kushagra Tandon
Specialist officer ( Marketing ) CWE- V - Selected in UNION BANK as MO

My success story is not much different from others. Just i wanna say ki jo b bole 6-7 month ki preparation me bank k exams ni nikalte, just dont believe them guys. Just and just hard work will get you through.
My journey started when i completed my MBA from ICFAI university Hyderabad in 2014. After that i got placed in KARVY stock broking limited, but the job was quite monotonous so I lost the interest in the job in HR words ( JOB DISSATISFACTION ).
Then my father advised me to go for Bank jobs and then i quit the job in April 2015 and started my prep from May 2015. I was literally harassed in SBI pre when i got just 3 marks in maths sectional. I felt like its not my cup of tea, but then one of my friend ANSHUL PRATAP SINGH ( who is also a admirer of BA ) motivated me that its just the start take ur failures as ur steps and move forward.

I can’t change the direction of the wind but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination”: Success Story

P.O:- Allahabad bank.

I am an electrical engineer, presently being a banker to the society writing this in the aim to say you that please never loses faith in almighty and in you. Try hard and harder. Never stop until goal has been reached. In today scenario of job market, banking along with s.s.c exam helps a lot of aspirants to secure a stable and better profile job in government sector. I prepared myself only for banking exams.
 I passed my B.E. in 2012, selected in campus placement and work there for 2 years. But during job, some inner thrust always force me to do something to achieve a govt. job in simple words. I leave the job in 2014, and by the connection of what it may be I came in contact with “EXAMPUNDIT” and with “BANKERSADDA” on the very month of leaving job. That connection felt me that I can surely get through the banking exams, if I try hard.

Success Story (IBPS SO IT Officer V) –
Name: - Sandeep Kumar
BA disqus name: Sandeago (used occasionally)

My Background:
Passing out from a reputed college with BE (CSE) degree in 2014 I had high hopes to do well in IT sector so much so that it was my dream to join big companies because of my inclination towards software development. I started my career with Wipro Technologies and soon discovered it’s not offering the kind of challenge that I want as a developer. I switched to another consulting firm and to prevent myself from the tag of job hopper I decided to stay there for a while.

Success Story: One day you will achieve what you want,just trust one yourself

First Step of Success

BA Name- Career Estate
Real Name- Shakespeare ko Usse matlab nahi
Exam Cleared- IBPS PO

Journey does not end here: Success Story

Name - Harshit Madan
Place - Jalandhar (Punjab)
Education - MBA (Marketing)

I got placed in Coffee Day Beverages via campus placement. Left it within 4 months. very Unprofessional. Thanks to a cousin of mine. I started preparing for Bank Exams in July'2015 ending. First appeared for RBI Assistance, failed,thought it might not actually be my cup of tea.
Then came IBPS PO Prelims. I cleared it with good marks above cutoff. Thought yesss..atlast something good is happening! Tide is turning my way!!!! And then IBPS declared shortlisted candidates. Nope.


I am a B.E in mechanical 2013 passout,it was my passion to get into a core job like everyone around but things didn't turn out as i expected it to be,
For two long years i did nothing more than just killing time expecting someone to get me a core job through reference,i din't attend even a single interview in a span of 2 years.
When the situation started getting worse with everyone around criticizing me for staying at home doing nothing,this is when i realised that i had to build my career myself.
There wouldn't be a better option to get a job than attempting competitive exams especially banking,
Though i had attempted 2exams prior to that point i had not given it a serious thought.

Your past mistakes doesn't define you : Success Story


I would like to thank the BA team for doing such a great job. They have provided not only the material required for the bank exams but also the motivational articles which keeps alive the hope in the aspirants.
