“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity”: Somraj Pathak (Allahabad Bank PO)
Myself Somraj, I don’t know whether success story gives any motivation or not but my failure story must motivate you. Have you failed in 30 bank jobs? I know your ans is “NO”.. so why crying after having any failure..fight back my bro & sis. Just check my failure list from starting..
Allahabad bank clerk & po (2010)
PNB po and clerk (2010)
Punjab & Sind bank clerk (2010)
Another 2-3 bank exams, I even could not remember the name.
After all these i got really frustrated. At that time neither my marks nor the cut off marks were disclosed. I believe none of the readers (including teachers of Bankers adda) of this post were fully aware of banking exam pattern at that time. It was tough, may be, as less number of vacancy in each of these exams. I said BYE BYE to bank and started working in private sector . In 2013, I appeared RBI clerk and grade B but result is as usual. In the mean time I again feeling bad having no job security so again thought of banking job.
Now In april,2015, certainly I came to know about Bankers Adda. After coming from office each & everyday I followed whatever mentioned in Bankers Adda. Believe me, I did not do anything else. After that also failure comes but success as well as below
ssc cgl,ssc chsl 2015 failed
IBPS RRB,IBPS CLERK,RBI CLERK,RBI GRADE B, 2015— failed
IBPS PO–first success in written–clear prelims as well as main but failed in final result (thought to share my success story but OMG)
LIC AAO,NHB,SIDBI,NICL,NABRAD, 2016 –-again all failed in written..but did not gave up
SBI PO 2016– second success in written–clear prelims as well as main but failed in final result(thought to share my success story but OMG)
IBPS RRB,IBPS CLERK,IPPB,SBI CLERK,RBI , 2016 —failed
IBPS PO 2016—-AND i AM DONE
Thanks to my parents,my wife,GOD,my private organization job (which help me to expense 600rs or more for every exam) and BANKERS ADDA & Prasant sir. Friends, it was my dream target and I achieved. After working 10 hours in office, I read whole night. Do you also want to be po or clerk?? Leave everything and study. No need to read and practice lot of books,no need to go to coaching, just follow bankers adda daily and I know, next story will be yours. 🙂
My few tips:
I do not need to write detail tips as you are smart enough, thus you are here to read my story, also everyone has different strategy still
i> Remember my friends, you have to do high score(50% mark) either in GK or in ENGLISH unless you are too good in math or logic.
ii> Do not wait till last moment to read GK-CAPSULE. It will be fruitless. Read daily gk and attempt daily gk exams.
iii>Logical puzzle can ruin your exam. Be cautious before attempt them.
iv>No guess work please.
v> Do not waste your energy to calculate cut off. Believe my friend, it can not be predicted by anyone.
“Failure is success if we learn from it”: Poonam Arora (Bank of Baroda Clerk)- 186
From last many days I was thinking to write my success story.. and also one of my close friends suggested me to write it. It was not so easy for me to prepare for govt jobs...so many responsibilities were there on me. my family ..my son… I saw very tough time after my marriage.. just because my mom’s dream I started..n me too wanted to prove myself. I completed my graduation in 2009 and just because my luck I got married in 2010.. even I was not prepared for marriage.I wanted to be independent.. was blessed by a baby boy in 2012.. but that dream to be independent never left my mind.

“Hard work always pays”: Samyak Jain ( Union Bank of India PO)- 134
This is Samyak Jain from Bhopal MP , I am writing this not to show what I have achieved but only to motivate my other friends who are still going through this hardest phase of their life . I can understand their pain “THE PAIN OF UNEMPLOYMENT” .
I have completed my Engineering in 2013 from ECE Stream. I had decided to go for Government job in year end of 2013 after watching the IT sector people’s life style ( I was not really happy after experiencing it )
I came to Delhi in Oct 2013 and started preparing for Technical Jobs in my core field but perhaps my fate was decided not to be in Technical field .
And the struggle begins here …
Appeared for Gate 2014 – Qualified (Not enough marks to get any of PSU )
Appeared for UPSC IES (Indian Engineering Services) 2014 – Not qualified
Appeared for Gate 2015 – Again Qualified (Again Not enough marks to get any of PSU )
In between I have also appeared in many more other PSU’s individual exams like SAIL , BHEL , ONGC , DMRC , ISRO , MPPGCL , MPPSC etc but all the time failure comes in my hand . Some times I missed by a very rare margin.
