IBPS PO Eligibility

IBPS PO syllabus and pattern of the exam

IBPS PO exam is traditionally an online exam where the candidates take their test on computers assigned to them at a particular center. In 2015, IBPS introduced a two-stage examination process for PO Recruitment, and they are expected to follow the same in 2016.

  1. There will be two online exams, a Preliminary and Mains. A candidate has to pass the Prelims to take the Main Examination.
  2. The result of the Main examination determines the participant’s eligibility for attending interviews and later stages of the recruitment.
  3. Both Preliminary and Main Exams are in objective mode.
  4. All tests except the part “English Language” can be attempted in Hindi medium.
  5. The latest syllabus for IBPS PO is this,IBPS PO exam Syllabus- online Mains and Prelims examQuestions carry one mark each. Candidates may skip questions. However, there is negative marking (1/4) for wrong answers. The score obtained by competitors after subtracting the negative marks is called the corrected score.
  6. The corrected score will be further tuned to obtain a cut-off score. Candidates need to secure a minimum cut-off score defined by IBPS to pass the Prelims and Mains.

It is a bit difficult for any organization to conduct multiple exams for recruitment. However, considering a large number of participants applying for IBPS PO, a quality control comes as necessary. And thus, we have the Prelims. Having the prelims help IBPS to allocate more resources for the Main Exam, and organize it in a single day.

IBPS PO Interviews, results, cut-off score, and final allotment

Since there are multiple sessions for the Prelims, the difficulty level for applicants will be different. IBPS uses equalization methods on corrected scores obtained by the candidates in PO Prelims to decide the cut-off score. The cut-off will be applied on Prelims result before candidates are allowed to participate in the Mains Exams. Similarly, they will also devise a cut-off score for the Main Exam taking all the parameters mentioned earlier and the community-based quotas. These cut-off scores, something above the minimum level decides a candidate’s progress to the interviews phase.

IBPS PO cut-off score 2016

The above-given screenshot shows the IBPS cut-off for the PO Mains Exam held in 2015. About 40600 candidates who scored above this level were allowed to participate in the IBPS PO interview held in January 2016.

  • IBPS PO interviews are usually held in local head offices of the participating banks.
  • Typically, there will be four dignitaries in the panel, including a woman.
  • All documents will be verified at the venue before the candidates are passed for the interviews.
  • IBPS has assigned 100 marks for the interviews.
  • The final result is formed in such a way that score in the Main Exam and Interview will be in ratio 80:20.

Candidates qualified in the IBPS PO interview, and the Main Exam got their final combined result, on April 1, 2016, and now waiting for their provisional allotment. A list of successful applicants will be published on IBPS website in a few days, with details like rank, name of the Bank where they get PO job, place of posting, etc. All communications will be addressed to the email and mobile number provided during IBPS PO registration.
