SBI PO 2018 is round the corner and this year it is going to be more difficult and more challenging as compared to the last year if the trend set by the IBPS is anything to go by. It is very important to prepare for the exam properly but it is more important to be in the right shape of the mind while preparing for the examination because without that, it is not possible to crack the exam even if you are prepared for it. In this article, we are going to discuss about the right kind of attitude required for taking an exam like SBI PO and getting success in it.
SBI PO 2018: What should be my attitude for Success?
SBI PO 2018 is not only a test of your knowledge but it is also a test of your character and your patience. It will throw you a number of challenges and without the mental strength you will never be able to overcome such challenges only with bookish knowledge. Here are the pro tips for keeping your mind in the right frame during this stressful phase of your life.
Positive visualization is the first step
Once you have applied for the examination, always try to think about positive things and try to visualize things such as reaching the examination hall on time, getting the seat easily and attempting the questions without much mental stress, finishing the examination well in time and being able to answer most of the questions confidently etc.
Be confident and reinforce that confidence on yourself
This is the second step of being in the right frame of mind during this phase. You have to be confident and always think about positive things such as ‘I can crack the exam’ and not things like ‘I can never crack such a difficult exam’. You can start repeating this to yourself multiple times during the preparation days.
Consider the positive aspects of taking an exam
There are a lot of positive things about taking an exam and thinking about those things will give you the enthusiasm to prepare for the examination properly. An exam will give you the chance to summarize your knowledge and also to focus on one target. Another good thing is an exam gives you the opportunity to show your talent to everybody. Just think once about the impact your success in SBI PO will make among your family and friends. It is an opportunity to establish yourself and explore it to the best possible extent.
Never talk to naysayers
There are people around you who will try to belittle your ambitions by saying negative things but remember only you are able to understand your potential and therefore, neglect such persons. Rather hang out with friends who are positive about cracking the examination. Discuss strategy and other things with them. It will make the whole thing easier for you.
Revision is the best confidence-booster
Well, this is something you can feel before you take the examination. If you are satisfied with your preparation, you will feel confident about writing the examination. It is very important to have the zeal to prepare rather than to succeed because preparation is the base of everything. Therefore, revise the syllabus as many times as possible so that you are confident of anything and everything that will come in the examination. You may not know the answer of a question directly in the examination but if you are well prepared, you will manage to get the answer somehow from your days of hard work.
Practice, practice and practice
Practice makes a man perfect and therefore, this holds true for any examination. You may think positive and good about the examination, but your preparation and days of practice should back you at the time of the actual examination. Otherwise, you cannot crack the examination with only confidence. Hence, practice as much as possible before you are going to write the actual exam.
Exam day tips
Preparing for the exam is very important but more important is being able to give your best in the actual examination. Try to catch proper sleep the night before the exam and reach the exam hall well in advance to avoid any last minute rush. If you are feeling very jittery, try to think about positive and happy memories and also try to take long and deep breath to slow yourself down.
An examination is the test of a lot of things apart from your knowledge. We, the banking team of Jagran Josh, are trying to give you guys some idea about the ways in which you can tackle the things other than the syllabus. A lot has been said about the preparation strategy and short cut tricks but without that right attitude, you are nowhere close to cracking an exam such as SBI PO. So, prepare properly and give your best and success will befall you.
All the best!!
