Why you Failed in every Competitive Exam ?

Everyday dozens of people ask me same question - "Sir I am appearing for bank and other many exams but I always fail. I have completed my syllabus many time and practice question papers daily. Can you guide me ? "

In this post I am going to tell the reason as well as solution to the the problem.

Inaccurate study material

Do own an "All-in One" book covering all sections. If yes, this book is the culprit behind your failure. Never buy books from unknown publishers just because you wanted to save money and need a book that covers all the sections. Those few hundred rupees could save you.

There is no excuse to hard work. You should read at least one book for section. 4-5 years back these books were helpful but now cutoffs are really high and they going to be higher. So I highly recommend you to change your study material.

I have already shared

Lack of practice

Nowadays most of the banks and PSU conducts online exams whereas many candidates practice paper-pen test papers. I use to recommend practice books but now I don't. I found many of my students were not able to read quickly and they were not comfortable with a online test. This was the sole reason I created TestPanda.com

I recommend you to join Testpanda.com

Wrong Strategies

Are you against sectional cutoffs because you fail every-time because of sectional cutoffs. If yes, then there is some problem in you strategy to tackle a exam. If you are weak in Quantitative aptitude then you should devote more time to this, this is not an excuse. 

Many students ask me how to allocate time to various sections. Answers is - It depends upon your capabilities. 

Must read - Strategies for IBPS exams

Aspirations

IBPS PO III cutoff was just 61. Anybody who got 70+ will surely get the job.  How many questions did you attempted ?

Most of the candidates attempted 130+ questions and they made stupid guesses in more than 50 questions. Result is - All of them scored less than 50.   

If similar things happened to you in past, then practice few sample tests and judge your capabilities. Everybody have different IQs so there is nothing like "Ideal Attempt". Attempt few online sample papers and judge yourself because nobody knows you better than you.

Bookish way of solving questions

The way questions are solved in exams and they solved in books are totally different. In books, author tries to explain every step in depth whereas in exams you need to solve questions using shortcuts and need not to find exact answers.

I have released my DVDs, you can get that here to learn all the shortcuts.

    1. I agree but there will be no problem in deceleration of final results.

    2. ji nahi koi fark nahi padega iska , result pe, because at the end of the day, banks are profit making oraganisations and they need people for functioning. moreover posts were declared well before model code of conduct. secondly, the government is not doling out jobs. we have cleared an examination, appeared in interview under due process. BY YOUR LOGIC, INDIANS CANNOT HAVE YEARLY SELECTION OF UPSC POSTS BECAUSE THERE ARE ALWAYS ELECTIONS IN ONE OR TWO STATES IN A YEAR AND PEOPLE FROMTHOSE ELECTION STATES ALSO APPLY FOR THE UPSC POSTS. MODEL CODE OF CONDUCT DEALS WITH FALSE PROMISES BY CURRENT GOVERNMENTS ABOUT FUTURE PROJECTS , JOBS AND FACILITIES WHICH MAY EFFECT ELECTION OUTCOME.if you are really an ips officer's ward oyu must know this

  18. the main thing to crack any objective exam is accuracy,then try to find out the questions that is suited for ur style.
    eg:in reasoning , many people waste time on puzzle, instead they can go for coding, syllogism,input/output,
    data sufficiency etc...........
    similarly in quant, go for quadratic equations
    the best way to crack ibps quant section is try to solve quant section of last 10 years of SBI and associates PO exam questions.
    Kiran prakashan book is available solved sbi po papers from 2000 to 2011.
    I can assure u this one, coz i prepared quant questions from this old papers and all questions in IBPS po3
    exam are similar to this old papers.
    For GK, they have some specific pattern, some question from recent sports, films, currency, capital,award,
    head of variuos organisations, head quarters of bank,president/prime minister of recently in news
    basic financial terms..........
    Finally the online test series, it will help you to assess urself

    I'm a final year MBA student. I'll be finishing in two months. the companies coming for campus placements are not so good. even the clerk profiles are better than those.

    I'm also confused as to wait for po results or to apply for campus.. I'd be glad to hear your opinion
