He was in dilemma whether to go ahead with GATE or Banking exam preparation. He has taken his friend’s suggestion in trying his luck in the Banking exams.
He gave an attempt in IBPS clerk 2014 which did not yield good results, failed miserably even in GATE. He finally decided to seriously prepare for the Banking exams by supporting himself with some additional guidance to make a successful attempt for SBI PO exam.
