When is the next bank exam from IBPS in 2015? The lion’s share of the daily readers we get in this blog want to know the dates of the upcoming IBPS exams: probably you’re on this page for the same reasons. To be honest, we are not in a position to foretell the dates of IBPS recruitment or any other bank exams as the official authorities decide it from time to time. However, we can estimate an approximate schedule of the forthcoming IBPS tests by taking the timetable of the previous ones.
IBPS Bank EXAM dates
As you might know, IBPS handles a number of bank exams every year. Apart from the IBPS branded Clerk Exam, PO (Probationary Officers) exam, SO (Specialist Officer) exam, RRB (Regional Rural Bank) Officers and Assistant exam, the agency is also behind SBI and associate’s exam and the recruitment to various insurance and financial entities.
The first ever IBPS recruitment was in 2011, and it included an offline PO exam. Later, IBPS expanded the recruitment list by adding Clerical, RRB and Specialist cadres and the mode of test got a change to online model. Every IBPS recruitment comprises of two exams (exception to Specialist and RRB), an interview, followed by the placements. The whole process of IBPS bank recruitment takes 2-3 months to finish. Typically, a candidate gets a time interval of at least one month between each exam if he or she is appearing for all the four recruitments in a year.

Next IBPS PO Exam 2015 registration dates:
To date, IBPS has organized 4 PO exams, and the most recent exam was during October/November in 2014. Last year IBPS had made some corrections to the PO Exam’s eligibility norms, and the subsequent announcement that had this change beckoned strong protest from the candidates who were preparing for the PO exam and hoping for the former criteria. Soon the agency reverted the changes and extended the dates of online application for those who couldn’t register it in the first place.
Status of last IBPS PO recruitment in 2015: Combined results announced, provisional allotment progressing.
The upcoming PO exam is scheduled to start on October 3 with the preliminary exam, and those who are clearing this stage will be permitted to appear the Main Examination on 31st of the same month. The online enrollment for 2015’s PO exam would begin in the last week of July.
We expect the PO interviews to arrive in January 2016, and the provisional allotment to complete by April 2016.
When is the next IBPS Clerk exam in 2015?
When IBPS started managing the Clerical Cadre exam in 2011, the minimum eligibility for a participating candidate was a pass in 10th Class. People from all sorts if life, even engineering graduates applied for the exam and ultimately the agency received around 50L registrations. The trend continued in successive exams although the education and age norms have had changed a bit in the course. The Clerk Exam is comparatively easy for the higher-educated: if they could crack this exam, they have the opportunity to advance to the PO and managerial levels within the institution- they are also entitled to get age-relaxation in PO and RRB exams, subject to the rules.
Status of recent IBPS Clerk Recruitment 4 in 2015: Final Results published, allotment phase going on.
The 5th edition of IBPS Clerk Exam will begin in December, starting with the Prelims, and the date of Main examination is currently planned as 03-01-2016.
If we could believe the schedule of the IBPS Clerk recruitment 2014 to repeat, the web registration for the upcoming IBPS Clerk exam would start on the second week of August 2015. The Interviews and the final placement would be carried out by April 2016.
