Kartik, To apply for Bank PO Jobs, you must have a degree with 60%.So make sure you get that score.
For clerks, you can apply with intermediate marks itself.
A degree can fetch you more opportunities -so complete it first.

Bank Job Questions said...

Anitha, you are 31 now & have BSc degree.The maximum age to apply for officer post in public banks is 30.So you can try for a job in private banks mentioning your exp. at Well Fargo.
But BSc is still a low qualification for getting senior posts in banks.You could try applying for banking oriented BPO/ KPO.
