Yes, it useful, but if you check the official IBPS dates as a new applicant, it would not be that clear for you- it doesn’t talk about the next date to apply online.
Upcoming next IBPS dates for Clerk, PO, Specialist (SO) and RRB Exams (2020)
The official notification on IBPS dates gives you an idea about the time remaining for preparing for the next PO, Clerk, SO, and RRB Mains and Prelims Exam. But If you look at this, you may not understand when was the last IBPS registration or when is the next one, as it doesn’t have any information about application dates.
The most crucial event in IBPS recruitment is obviously the online enrollment phase, when you apply for IBPS Exam. You must know about the month of online registration for your favorite IBPS cadre.

Since IBPS follows a similar pattern every year, you can easily guess the next IBPS exam 2020 dates from these images.
IBPS RRB exam dates in 2020
Each year IBPS starts its hiring process by notifying the RRB exam dates. IBPS has four different categories of recruitment under RRB, for Scale I, II, II Officers, and Assistant (Clerk) cadres. Although the dates all these exams come in a single advertisement, the registrations happen separately. Last year, in 2019, the announcement for regional rural bank recruitment (VIII) notification came out in June.
IBPS RRB registration in 2019 was between 18-06-2019 to 04-07-2019. As of today, the recruitment is going through the placement phase. Candidates who have applied for IBPS RRB recruitment and cleared Prelims and Mains exam may check their their provisional allotment status from the official website.

IBPS PO exam dates in 2020
The PO registration dates come just after the Regional Rural Bank recruitment in IBPS’s calendar. Being the most popular one in the IBPS portfolio, the PO exam attracts a large crowd of applicants from different degree streams. IBPS collected the applications for 2019’s PO recruitment from 07-08-2019 to 28-08-2019. People who have applied for the IBPS PO exam during these dates have already taken the prelims in October and the Main Exam in November.
Hence, you can’t write the IBPS PO exam in this year. Keep your focus on preparation as you wait for more than eight months until August 2020 for the next IBPS PO dates.
IBPS Clerk Exam dates 2020
There is no interview for IBPS Clerk Exam, and the syllabus is also a bit approachable for average students.

Those who took part in this session may now check the results of their Prelims Exam. The Main exam is scheduled for 19th of January 2020.

IBPS Specialist Officer (SO) Exam dates 2020
A bachelor’s degree is the qualification for IBPS PO and Clerk recruitment, but IBPS SO is different. There are very few opportunities in the IBPS Specialist category, and that too is split among various cadres. Anyways if you are a professional degree holder in one of the fields that IBPS has in the notification, you may apply online for the IBPS Specialist Officer (SO) recruitment. IBPS closed the online window for 2019’s SO registration on 26-11-2019 and the Exam was on the 28th and 29th of December 2019.
