You must have degree as on May 1, 2011.So final years or those writing exams or waiting for results are not eligible to apply for this SBI PO recruitment 2011.
Sathish,General category students have 4 chances (from 18.04.2010). Since u have attended 2xams, u can apply for 2 more.
Tom, As per the SBI PO recruitment advertisement,the fees must be paid only from May 18.So u will have to pay fees again.
Punm,ur not eligible to apply since are not 21yrs of age.

Hi Bank Exams India,

Last year I have appeared for SBI Associates PO recruitment which was held on march 7 2010. If I appear for SBI PO recruitment this year, will it be taken as 1st attempt or 2nd attempt.
Is SBI PO and SBI Associates PO are same or different?
Please clarify.
Thank you

i want to know for signature image , it is necessary to sign with black ink pen ? if i sign with black ball pen, will it be ok? said...

Snehal & others, You must have degree at the time of applying for this this SBI PO recruitment.Final years,waiting for results are NOT ELIGIBLE to apply.
SBI & SBI associate bank exams are different.If you appear this time, it will be 2nd attempt.
Pratibha, You must sign on white paper in black ink only.It is clearly given in recruitment notice.Read it fully before asking questions.
