IBPS CLERK SUCCESS STORIES 2

We at Studycopter would like to share with our readers, the IBPS Clerk success stories of some of our devoted users. We hope that these IBPS Clerk success stories will provide you with the inspiration you require to stay motivated while preparing for your IBPS Clerk examinations.


Hello everybody! I am Rohan Mukherjee from Shyamnagar district in Kolkata. In 2011, I completed my BTech with a specialization in IT from a college in Chennai. Immediately after earning my degree, I had to go back to my village and help my father out with some business. It was during this time that I became aware of the fact that I did not wish to continue with the field I’d chosen for myself. When i shared my concerns with my parents, they became agitated and anxious about my future. My future looked very bleak even to me. I decided to explore the employment opportunities that the public sector had to offer. I learnt of the IBPS examinations and made up my mind to try and crack them. I went back to Chennai and moved in with a friend. I started looking for institutes providing IBPS coaching and finally enrolled myself in one. In 2013, I appeared for atleast 12 exams but could not qualify a single one. I managed to get shortlisted for the SBI PO interview but fell very sick right before the date and could not make it. It seemed to me that luck was not working in my favour. The subject I was the weakest in was General Knowledge. While looking for Current Affairs updates, I came across Studycopter’s blog. When I compared the blog to other general knowledge sites I had been referring to, I realized how organized and systematic Studycopter is. I downloaded the app and subscribed to one of the courses. Over a course of three months, the improvement in my General Knowledge was pretty evident. In 2014, I appeared for the IBPS Clerk Examinations for the 2nd time. I cleared my IBPS clerk entrance exam and got shortlisted in the interview. I was placed in Bank of Maharshtra. I would like to thank Studycopter for coming to my rescue and would absolutely advice everybody to give it a try.

P.S. Rohan Mukherjee was from the Scheduled Caste category and cleared his IBPS Clerk examination with 75 marks.

IBPS CLERK SUCCESS STORIES 1

We at Studycopter would like to share with our readers, the IBPS Clerk success stories of some of our devoted users. We hope that these IBPS Clerk success stories will provide you with the inspiration you require to stay motivated while preparing for your IBPS Clerk examinations.


Hello everybody! My name is Eshaan Sahoo and I am here to share my experience of preparing for IBPS examinations. I studied commerce in my 11th and 12th classes and I am a BCom graduate from Rajasthan University. I had always wished to work in a bank but after graduation I felt completely clueless. I saw my family members who worked in the private sector suffering because of the recession. In the midst of all the chaos, I saw my uncle who worked as a government official, to be the only one without any stress about the future. That is when I decided to try for a government job. I had a lot of difficulty while writing these examinations because of my poor marks in graduation. It took me a good 2 years before I managed to crack the IBPS Clerk examination and got selected to work at Union Bank of India. These two years taught me a lot more than just the IBPS syllabus and I would like share with you all some of the things I learnt. First of all, I did not join any coaching institute.  I have always been into self studying and with Studycopter as a guide I didn’t find it necessary to join any coaching centre. I believe Studycopter taught me just as much, if not more than what a teacher would’ve. It is because of Studycopter and it’s videos that I managed to get a good score in the quant section. My suggestion to all future bankers would be to break up the study material into smaller chunks and study regularly instead of trying to cram everything on the last day. I also recommend all of you to use Studycopter as a reliable guide to IBPS prep.

P.S. Eshaan Sahoo was from the general category and cleared his IBPS Clerk examination with 92 marks.

IBPS PO SUCCESS STORIES 3

We at Studycopter would like to share with our readers, the IBPS PO success stories of some of our devoted users. We hope that these IBPS PO success stories will provide you with the inspiration you require to stay motivated while preparing for your IBPS PO examinations.


My name is Harish Kumar and I am a native of Nandyal, Andhra Pradesh. My father was a Special Assistant in SBI and ever since I was a kid I wanted to work in the public sector. I have always wished to be of service to other people and working for the government seemed like the perfect way to achieve that. Moreover, growing up as I watched my father working, I realized how well the public sector caters to its employee’s needs. I completed my BSc in 2010 and MBA in 2012. I took up a marketing job while simultaneously studying for competitive examinations. I found the idea of getting into the banking sector intriguing and decided to apply for the IBPS PO examination. The first time turned out to be a failed attempt but my spirit did not waver. I decided to give it another shot. These two years that I devoted to preparing for IBPS, involved a lot of  travelling because of my job. It was not possible for me to carry books everywhere. Because of the Studycopter mobile application, I was able to make use of my daily commute time to study. Studycopter enabled me to study both efficiently and conveniently. I remember, once before the exam I panicked and really needed to talk to somebody. Once again Studycopter with it’s 24/7 private tutor facility came to my aid. Finally after 2 years of hardwork, I got selected in IBPS PO IV for Punjab and Sind Bank. To all my fellow IBPS candidates out there, do remember that success can’t be achieved overnight. Instead it is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. ALL THE BEST!

P.S. Harish Kumar was from the Scheduled Tribe category and cleared his IBPS PO examination with 74 marks.

Hello. My name is Lakshmi Sharma and I want to share my story with all of you. I come from a small town in Kerala. I am an engineering graduate in instrumentation technology and I have done my MBA in HR. After getting done with my MBA, I started working in a firm as an HR executive. But as luck would have it, my mother fell ill and I had to quit my job after only a year. After 2 years, when my mother was finally back in good health, I started looking  for jobs but to no avail. All the organizations that I approached were offering a package far lower than the previous job I held. When I heard of one of my cousins getting a job in a bank, I thought of giving public sector banking jobs a try. I decided to start preparing for these competitive exams and went ahead and bought a ton of books. I studied for a year but all my efforts came to a bad end when I couldn’t clear any of the exams I had applied for. It was then then that I saw a notification for IBPS PO 2014. While researching IBPS, I stumbled across Studycopter and that is when my outlook towards preparation changed and how! The first think I did was subscribe to Studycopter’s IBPS PO CompletePrep course. It provided me with 15 mock tests that helped me tremendously. I had always been apprehensive about the interview rounds, but Studycopter’s mock interview sessions provided me with some much needed confidence. Finally after all my efforts, I cleared my IBPS PO examination and got placed in Bank of India. To every IBPS aspirant out there, I just have one thing to say! Don’t lose hope. And I urge all of you to give Studycopter a try.

P.S. Lakshmi Sharma was from the general category and she cleared her IBPS PO examination with 89 marks.
