Preparing for the IBPS PO Exam with Smart Strategies by Anjan Jyothi

I cleared the IBPS PO Exam in the very first attempt. It is not LUCK. It is not FLUKE. My name is Anjan. I did it with TalentSprint. And this is how exactly I did it…

I appeared for the IBPS PO 2015 Exam. .The two stage exam being conducted for the first time, I was not sure, how to prepare. Then, a friend of mine, who was also preparing for the exam, introduced me to a few interesting videos on youtube and found them interesting. I then registered for a free webinar on how to prepare for IBPS PO. That’s when I came to know of TalentSprint and then joined the online program which was one of the key decisions which helped me get ready for the exam.

5 Key Success factors

Here are the 5 secrets that helped me clear the IBPS PO in first attempt

1: Planning:  I made a detailed plan as suggested in the webinar. I committed to prepare for 3-4 hours every day so that I can cover the wide range of subjects required. Also, I decided to prepare for both the stages in one go.

2: Executing the Plan:  This was the  most difficult part. I wanted to do 30 minutes of calculations every day, read 2 newspapers every day and 2 hours of preparation and 30 minutes of practice. it was initially difficult for me to commit 3-4 hours. However, I could after a week of persistent self motivation was able to be in line with the plan. This is when I started getting confidence on my readiness for the exam

3: Falling into a rhythm - The next two weeks, I set into a rhythm of preparation. Weekly Live Doubt Clearing Sessions helped me to take stock of where I stood and how things were moving.  Also, the weekly tests conducted helped me to take stock. Yes, I started with below 40% performance in the tests. But, I could see myself improving week on week.

4: The final push:  The final push came during the last 1 month. I was able to increase the time to almost 5 hours a day. The LIVE refresher sessions for IBPS Prelims and Final exams helped me revise my learnings and more importantly practice different types of methods to solve the same problem. I was able to, at this point of time, understand the areas where I am strong in.

5: Key Factor:  As both Rohit sir and Sylvia madam had repeated 100s of times duing their live sessions, only 3 key factors to succeed. Practice, Practice and more Practice. I realized that this is absolutely true. I had taken 100s of tests, practice calculations even when going out ( I started adding, subtracting and multiplying the first and last two numbers of cars when I was travelling :-) and I continue to do so well after the exams are over). I was amazed at the power this gave me.
