I gave Prelims of Sbi clerk on 10th this mnth and Pretty sure will crack It as Attempted 85/100 with accuracy but I dont think i have caliber to Crack Mains of it in 15 days as Lack in evrythg despite cracking Preliminary in 1sr Attempt it seems impossible to crack the exam. Am i weak or my moral
In advance I congratulate at prelims score you are going to expect and your confidence. You had a good attempt. Expecting 85/100 is a big success. Please don't discourage yourself. You have the enough ability to crack the Mains too. Try to work hard more than your prelims. Set a timetable. Solve as many problems you can. Refer all the previous papers of the exam. Shortlist the important topics and the frequent repetition of questions and solve them. It all depends upon the amount of hard work given. Work hard for the better result.
Hope you a good luck.
