IBPS Clerk Topper Interview, Strategy to prepare for IBPS Clerk exam by Dunga Gayatri

  • Interview: Hello, welcome to Study IQ. How are you feeling after getting your selection?

Dunga: I was very surprised and happy.  It was my childhood dream to be in a government job. The government sector provides us with a good salary package and job security. A government sector job was my dream, that’s why I decided to prepare for it.

  • Interview: Where are you from?

Dunga: I belong to the Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh and from there only I did my graduation.

  • Interviewer: What was your strategy for the Prelims exam?

Dunga: No of the applicants are more for this exam so you have to maintain accuracy and speed.

Give a mock regularly on a daily basis, analyze each and every question and I always try to see in how many ways a particular question can be done.

Did my regular study for 7 to 8 hours including mock test analysis.

  • Interviewer: What was your strategy for the Mains exam?

Dunga: Study only for mains from the start. Gk and banking awareness is included in the mains paper.

General awareness is the deciding factor for both mains and interview. Gk should be strong. Follow current affairs from 5 to 6 months before the exam.

  • General awarenessI followed Gaurav Garg sir for the series of daily current affairs, I used to make notes from the daily current affair video by Gaurav Garg sir. I used to do the daily revision of the daily current affairs.
  • Reasoning – Give short quizzes on a regular basis. Don’t be afraid of puzzles in reasoning. One puzzle can fetch you 5 marks straight. Keep 5-6 minutes for the rest of things in reasoning.

Interviewer: What message would you like to give to fellow aspirants?

Dunga: Do practice of the subjects more than to study only.

  • Leave negativity
  • The constituency is the key to success
  • Give mock daily
  • Remain focused on your goal and do not get distracted with other exams.

I want to thank Gaurav Garg sir for the series of daily current affairs on the Studyiq Youtube channel.
