‘Time was my Villian’
What do unsuccessful applicants have to say on these results? We caught up with few.
Parvathy from Chennai says, “I failed to qualify in the prelims.I knew answers for many questions BUT miscalculated the time & spent lot of time in English.”
Time was my main villian as I couldn’t complete the paper & guessed many answers during the last minute.I think I made a mistake by doing it.From next exam, IBPS should allot atleast 1 hour 30 minutes for prelims as the present time is too low.”
Maybe I should have practiced more & planned in advance.” she concluded.
Those of you who couldn't qualify – Don’t worry. Believe in learning from this experience & wait for the next opportunity to strike it hard.Keep practicing & you can get hold of your dreams very soon.
Just remember – Failures are the stepping stones to success.
