IBPS – the Story

But, later on in 1984, the authorities changed the PSS to the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS), as per the mandate of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Therefore, presently, the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection conducts the IBPS PO Bank Exam.
The IBPS PO Bank Exam is your ticket to the much sought-after job of banks. Meanwhile, IBPS supplies its services to all Public-Sector Banks, SBI, Associate Banks of SBI, SIDBI, NABARD, RBI, LIC & Insurance companies and other banks.

The IBPS staffs Probationary Officers and Management Trainees every year via a Common Written Examination (CWE), a.k.a. the IBPS PO exam. The authorities initiated the CWE in 2011 and are holding it for the eighth time this year. Hence, officially, it is named as IBPS PO /MT CWE VIII 2018.The IBPS PO staffing process consists of 3 phases (preliminary, mains and interview). Therefore, the aspirants must pass each of them to move to the next phase. Consequently, mentioned below are the important steps of the IBPS PO Recruitment Process:
Online Preliminary Exam: The IBPS selects a sufficient number of aspirants in each category depending upon the needs for Online Main Examination.
Online Mains Exam: Aspirants must pass the sectional as well as the overall cutoff in the main exam to qualify for an interview.

IBPS PO Exam Pattern
IBPS has made open, the new exam pattern for IBPS PO 2018-19 Exam. As a recent change, now IBPS has introduced individual sectional timing for each section in the preliminary exam. Consequently, the IBPS PO exam (CWE 8) for recruiting candidates will be based on an online written examination in two parts:
- Firstly, the Tier 1 or IBPS Preliminary Exam and,
- Secondly, the Tier 2 or IBPS Mains Exam. A face-to-face interview process follows this examination.
IBPS PO Prelims Exam Pattern
Firstly, the total duration for the IBPS PO preliminary exam is of 1 hour and 20 minutes, for each section. Also, the IBPS will hold the Prelims exam via online mode. It contains 3 sections with a total of 100 questions and a maximum score of 100 marks. Moreover, there is negative marking in IBPS PO prelims exam and the authorities subtract 0.25 marks for each incorrect answer. Therefore, the candidates must clear the cut-off in all 3 sections, to pass the IBPS PO Main exam. Consequently, the details of the Main exam, section-wise, are specified below:
|S.No.||Name of Tests (Objective type)||No. of Questions in IBPS PO 2018 Prelims Exam||Maximum Marks in IBPS PO 2018 Prelims Exam||Time|
|1||English Language in IBPS PO 2018 Prelims Exam||30||30||20 minutes|
|2||Numerical Ability in IBPS PO 2018 Prelims Exam||35||35||20 minutes|
|3||Reasoning Ability in IBPS PO 2018 Prelims Exam||35||35||20 minutes|
Moreover, the candidates need to pass each of the three tests by obtaining minimum cut-off marks. The IBPS will declare these minimum cut-off marks. Subsequently, it will also call the sufficient number of candidates of each category for Online Main Examination.
IBPS PO Mains Exam Pattern
In the first place, the IBPS holds the IBPS PO Main exam via online mode. It has 5 (= 4+1) sections with a complete score of 200+25 marks. Moreover, the total time is of 180+30 minutes. As in 2017, IBPS will hold a descriptive paper in its mains version of IBPS PO Exam for the hiring of candidates for the post of Probationary Officer. Also, the candidates must attempt the sections of the exam in the same order and within the specified time. The IBPS has mentioned these, at the time of the exam. Finally, a candidate needs to clear both preliminary and mains rounds, to qualify for the process of interview.
|S.No.||Name of Tests (Objective)||No. of Questions in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||Maximum Marks in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||Time|
|1||Reasoning & Computer Aptitude in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||45||60||60 minutes|
|2||English Language in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||35||40||40 minutes|
|3||Data Analysis & Interpretation in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||35||60||45 minutes|
|4||General Economy & Banking Awareness in IBPS PO 2018 Mains Exam||40||40||35 minutes|

IBPS PO Interview
Firstly, the IBPS calls the aspirants passing the mains exam for an interview which bears a maximum of 100 marks. Moreover, the minimum passing marks in the interview are 40% (35% for SC/ST/OBC/PWD candidates).
The round of interview generally lasts for 15-20 minutes. In it, a body of bank officials asks questions to candidates about themselves, the banking sector, general awareness, current affairs etc. Hence, the candidates must be dressed well, confident and bring all necessary documents to the interview.
The authorities prepare the final merit list based on the scores obtained in mains examination and interview. Then the IBPS sums up the final score by totaling. It provides weightage of marks to the main examination and the round of interview, in the ratio of 80:20, respectively.
The penalty for Wrong Answers
There is a punishment for incorrect answers specified in the Objective Tests of both Preliminary and Mains exams. Also, an incorrect answer will lead to a subtraction of one-fourth of the total mark assigned to that question. For example, IBPS will subtract 0.25 marks as the penalty for the incorrect answer to a question that contains 1 mark. But, the IBPS won’t penalize a candidate for not attempting a question. That is, if an aspirant leaves a question unanswered, no deduction of marks shall take place.
Calculating Final Score for IBPS PO Exam
The IBPS computes the final score for the IBPS PO exam, keeping in mind, the following points:
- Firstly, the IBPS won’t entertain Marks scored in the Preliminary Exam (Tier-1) in the final score. They are only for qualifying for the Mains Exam (Tier-2).
- Secondly, the candidates must pass the Phase-2 and Interview individually, to become qualified for final merit.
- Then, the ratio of weightage of CWE Main exam to the interview for preparing final merit list will be 80:20.
- Finally, IBPS uses the final score of the mains, out of 100, for preparing the ultimate merit list for each category. It also finally chooses the candidates from each category, with top ranks of merits.
