5 Thoughts to “GA Revision for Syndicate and Canara Bank Exams — Set 93”

  1. Giriver Bisht

    “ALL GREAT ACHIVEMENT REQUIRE TIME”

    My name is Giriver Singh Bisht, I belong to Nainital District, Uttarakhand. I am a guy who likes to be enovolved in every activity like freindship, party and all. Today i want to share my success story so that other may also get motivated from me. I am an engineering gradate. I did my Btech in computer science in 2014. Bs masti hi kri btech life me.. So, I was kicked out from many companies. Tried a lot. Faced at least ten interviews. All fruitless.
    agar ek round clear krta to dusre me bahar ho jata. Sometimes I was rejected when it comes to merit. A lot of struggle was there in 2014-2015. I didn’t want to be a burden on my family, so I joined a BPO to bear my expenses. Took a training in software testing also, aur job search kr rha tha apne field me..ek company me job lgi but they were giving nothing for the first three month..then 8k per month. I left that company because i didnt feel good there even on the first month.
    last time 2015 novmber me mujhe lga mai bkar me time waste kr rha..A close friend suggested me that I should go for Banking preparation.
    Then finally I came back to home and to take admission in any coaching here.

    yr suna tha maine parents support krte hai bahut..sayad isilie ghar aaya tha..so I started coaching from 25 november 2015. But neighbours and locality friends were asking why u leave job questioning over my capabilities and other things. My father came to pressure because of those people because my father always had had high dream regarding me. He often used to get hyper on me because whatever he had, he had paid for my Btech.
    He had high expectation regarding me..but ek berojgar bete ko dekh ke wo bhi toot gye the..mujhe sunate bahut the..he was not ready to pay my coaching fee and even form fee. And he never did. I had left my house also.
    Anyways, unka aashirwad to hoga hi inner side se..wo hi kafi tha mere liye…but us insaan ko kbhi koi fikra nhi hoti jiske paas meri jaisi bhne ho or unka bharosa ho..age me to mujhse choti hai..but mera sara fee
    and expediture unhone hi support kia tuituion pdha ke. Unke bina mai kuch kr hi nhi pata shayad.
    Almost I failed in more than 15 exams but finally I made it..po bnne ka sapna pura ho gya..now list of my failures-

    1-IBPS Clerk pre 2015 (failed, didn’t know syllabus. I was just new to it )
    2-IBPS SO failed (84 marks. cutoff 112)
    3-SBI Clerk pre clear but failed in mains ( got 108 cutoff was 132)
    4-Nainital Bank po failed (marks not displayed)
    5-SBI PO Pre clear; Main failed ( got 54 cutoff was 70 )
    6-Bank of Maharashtra fail(got 110 cutoff was 120)
    7-Railways Pre failed(got 64 cutoff was 64.5)
    8-IBPS PO pre failed by just .25 margin(very disappointed as i worked very hard for this exam)
    9-IBPS clerk pre failed (got 69 cutoff was 71)
    10-RBI assistant pre failed (got 77.5 cutoff was 79)
    11-RRB clerk pre clear but again failec in main(cutoff was 130 it got 114)
    12-RRB PO pre failed by .25 marks (got 53 cutoff was 53.25)
    13-NIACL pre clear, failed in mains again (marks not displayed)
    14-Bank of Baroda fail PO (got 94 cutoff was 96)
    15-Syndicate Bank PO failed ( got 101 cutoff 103)
    16-SBI PO pre clear, again failed in main (got 48 ,cutoff 50)
    17-Nainital Bank PO failed
    18-IBPS PO pre clear but failed in main( didnt clear sectional cutoff)
    19-IBPS clerk pre clear but didnt give main
    20-India Post Payment Bank failed
    21-IBPS so main clear but couldn’t clear english cutoff by just margin of .25

    Success-
    1- RRB PO selected (going for it)
    2- RRB clerk selected
    3- Nainital Bank clerk selected
    4- IDBI Bank PO interview on 09th feb
    5- CGL Tier-2 next

    There are lots of small and big experiences during this journey which I would cherish my whole life.
    Zid ek negative word hai but main ise positively leti hu kyuki agar kuch pana hai to apko ziddi hona padega.
    Itne failures ke baad bhi I never regretted my decision of continuing the preparation because there was only one thing i.e., THE SELF-BELIEF.

    So guys, always give your 100% and Keep giving your honest efforts, one day u will make it..Believe me, Hard work paid off. Luck is definitely a factor, but kismat bhi mehnat walo ka sath deti hai.
    maine sb kuch chod diya tha..is banking preparation ke lie..dosto se contact km kr dia tha, gf chod di thi, ghumna km kr dia tha, bahut mehnat kri..given 10-12 hours a day.
    Cracking bank exams are very tough these days so if u are not able to come closer to cutoff even after giving 100% for a many times .it will waste your time.u sud choose other exam like state govt. exam ( they are easier); otherwise if determined, u can carry on.

    Below are some great website for study.
    AffairCloud (best gk and other quizes)
    AspirantZone (best for gk )
    IBPS guide(all rounder)
    BankerAdda 24/7
    These are enough website ..dont run for many website..they will confuse u..these are good enough.

    My friends who supported through all my struggle time were-
    My sisters. Main unka ehsaan kbhi nhi bhul skta.
    Tapan Bahuguna who was my mentor. You taught me how to study what to study.
    Narendra Rawat- ye bde bhai samaan hai..always was positive for me..helped a lot.
    Ravi Upadhyaya- ye dost se bhi badkar hai. hmehsa tayar rhta tha help krne ko..(halanki kbhi help nhi kri..just kidding).hmne hmesha problem sath me contact me rahkar solve kri.he is amazing..
    Harshit Bhai -ye hmara bhai hai..jald hi exam nikalega koi bda
    Sapna Bora- nice girl..gifted me Quant book..always ready to help..jald hi koi bda exam nikalegi
    Yogesh Bisht- ye wo dost hai jisne apne room me mujhe pnah di..jb ghar chod kr chla gya tha main.
    And among other friends Pradeep Pawar,riya,taragi,surendra,brijesh, Prabhat Yadav, Surendra, Brijesh,thanx a lot..

    THIS IS JUST A BEGGINING!

    Anybody want help regarding preparation..can contact me at 7830405737 or giriver21@gmail.com

    With best wishes!
    Regards and thank you
