The official notification said this exam will be conducted twice a year..my question is whether a candidate can appear for this exam for as much number of times as he/she wants or is there a fixed number of attempts

BankExamsIndia.com said...

KC, There are no percentages required.You must have passed in any degree to register for this all India common bank exam
niftaspirant, Notification for Clerk posts may be released after this PO exam.
Keerthana, you can apply for both clerk & PO exam.But this notification is for PO positions only.

Prabhat said...

This is a great news 4 now....
I m going 2 work realy hard for this...
Thanx to this site........

BankExamsIndia.com said...

DD, You need not write another exam for each bank.After this exam, banks will call those with specific score for Interview directly.
Archana,Getting good score in common bank exam depends on your preparation.You can also write the exam next time if your score is low.
Kapil, Payment challan can be had from www.ibps.in.Each bank will advertise the number of posts as they require but you need to write this exam to apply for any bank job.Books used for previous bank recruitments can be referred for this common test also, as pattern is same.

Prashant Thorat said...

Dear sir/Madam,

Thanks for your timely information & guidance...

Will IBPS conduct a different exam for the post of Specialized Officers (e.g. Agriculture Officer)? Or Will they consider this Common PO written exam score for this post?

sachin said...

thanks alot this news come like a boon for me as i only wants to have the entry through po but i don,t have prcnt in graduation i was not eligible and i was killing per day though i was preparing for clerical thanks bank exam india

shankar said...

Hi bankexmsindia
after this common exam, will different banks will advertise their different eligibility criteria in marks front(marks scored in graduation)? at present only graduation is required with no percentage bar.
there are few banks(i.e BOB,Dena,Corp,United) who recruit below 60%.will there willbe complete overhaul in this pattern.

prasad said...

Regarding common bank exam minimum of 20 years is posted in advertisement but online application is saying that age be between 21-45 years.
please clarify my problem

divya said...

Hi,

I have completed my B.E in computer science this year i.e 2011 and my result are also out. But we are yet to receive our degree certificate which will still take a year or so, but within 2 weeks we can get provisional degree certificate(PDC).

Can we apply for CWE this year, with provisional degree certificate(PDC) ?
Please reply at the earliest.

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Divya, U must hv degree as on July 1, 2011.If not u could apply after 6 months for the next common bank test.
Prasad,The online application shows 20-30 yrs only.
All Bank,There is pressure in every job & in every company.If you allocate your work accordingly - u can excel in any job!
Shankar, The eligibility for banks will be known after the all india common bank test.They may fix percentage or settle with just pass in degree.
Prashant,Specialist officer vacancies are only limited.Hence banks may conduct exams separately.Will have to wait & see.

poulami said...

i found out this website just now and its amazing.
my question is after the exam and obtaining scorecard etc,during recruitment, will the banks give out advertisement for recruitment in their website/newspapers or will they contact those with requisite scores directly through IBPS.
if they give out adverts, they will be announced in this website, right ?

again, thanks for this wonderful helping hand towards us young men and women.

dipti said...

Sir/Madam,
i m working in s/w company.but i am interested in bank exams.so,it is not possible for me to leave my job for specially study ,so i request u to tell me ,that how i prepare about these exam.i have some books but if you tell me some tack of study then it is very helpful to me for upcoming bank exam....replay me as soon as possible. Thanx.....
dipti

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Poulami,After this exam-candidates scoring above minimum marks would be given scorecards.Public banks will advertise their vacancies in newspapers & on their website along eligibility.Candidates have to apply for them.We will also inform our readers about new vacancies.
Dipti,It is not wise to leave current job in search of another. Continue in same job & prepare for common bank exam.The syllabus of banking test is similar to that of IT placement test.Prepare with books & previous question papers.

Sneha S said...

Hi Bankexamsindia,

I want to make sure that i can apply for this CWE or not because i have passed my degree in 2009 and i have my marksheet in hand but i didn't apply for degree certificate till date but i will get it in this month.

S.ABINAYA said...

Dear sir/madam

i think there is a provision to edit the registered application...
can u please guide me..

rajkamal said...

sir i saw that quantitative aptitute has been added to the syllabus,and di has been omitted....so the old books for po would nt b of any help....plz suggest...

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Sneha, you could apply for this all India combined bank exam 2011 with the marksheet but get the degree cert. as soon as possible since its required to apply for banks.
Abinaya, the facility to modify your details will be available after 3 days from the registration date. Login & click on edit.
Rajkamal,Why to throw old bank exam books? Purchase Quantitative aptitude alone & prepare along with other books.

vinod said...

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Vinod, if you havnt received any payment acknowledgement, the amount would be credit back to your account.Since you hav informed them through email - wait for 2-3 days untill they respond & re-register again.Use Internet explorer to register

Mohan said...

Hi,

This is mohan sai from nellore, i am preparing for upcoming clerk exams. please tell me when the huge sbi clerk notification will release? After i got the job in clerk exam, i am studying final year degree. I will complete my degree next year march. then i would like to go for the po examination?
Is it possible a clerk can write the sbi po exam?

Archana Simha said...

Hi Bank Exams India, I found this website to be very informative. I had a concern regarding the CWE. I am going to be 30 on 12th October this year, so I had met the age criteria... However I got my final year results only on the 20th of July and therefore dont meet the second criteria. :-(
My question is, the second phase of the CWE will possibly be conducted after 6 months... ie. around Jan, Feb or March... But by then I would be 30 and a few months old. Do you think there will be any relaxation on the age aspect for General category candidates? Plz give me some good news... :-(((

karthika said...

hi, This s Karthika.

What would be the approximate salary for this post Probationary Officer or Management Trainee.

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Archana, There wont be any relaxation for General category candidates & max age limit would be 30.So you may not be able to apply during the next phase too, as you would have crossed 30yrs by then.
Karthika, The salary for bank PO`s is the same as it was earlier.It would be approx. 22,500/month

Jayeeta Halder Nag said...

Good luck to all you aspirants. As a Probationary Officer of United Bank of India, I would suggest you all to go through all RBI's latest updates. Its even better to go through their website regularly. As far as maths are concerned, take a time-test on yourself and work more on Data Interpretaions. Those who have appeared for SBI PO exam on 24.07.2011 must have felt the crunch of the math paper's toughness. I had qualified and worked in Corporation Bank & State Bank of India as Clerical Staff, and am currently working as a PO in United Bank of India. From my experience I have learnt that Banking exams strictly follow a pattern. If you have understood the pattern, no banking exam is tough for you. Believe me, banking exams are way easier than the Administrative Job exams. So, keep aspiring, success awaits you.

sumedh said...

sir from last 3 days im trying to open ibps site but its not responding. what i want to know is that is there any possibility that date of filling online application will be extended or not. There are hundreds of people who have taken bank challan but are not able to submit their form becose of server problem.site but its not responding. what i want to know is that is there any possibility that date of filling online application will be extended or not.

BankExamsIndia.com said...

Jayeet, Thanks for sharing your thoughts on cracking the bank exams.
Sumedh, We cant comment on whether IBPS would extend the last date for common bank exam application.Why were you waiting for the last date to register?

Anuradha said...

I think Sir 28th July was not the last date to register.. last date is 1st of August. So I think sir if the IBPS site is having some problem then they have sufficient time to look into it.. And sir in this forum I ve seen a student have said that he is trying from last 3 days to apply online and his comment is on 28th of July then he must be trying from 25th of July. So in short we are trying to apply much before the last date of online application. And if the IBPS site is having some problem then from 25th of july to 30th of july they have 144 hours to solve there problem. And I think that is more then enough time they have to solve there issue. Not only that their "feedback section is not working" "their help desk number is not working"... According to common bank exam advertisement "Candidates are advised in their own interest to apply online much before the closing date and not to wait till the last date for depositing the fee" So Sir I have not deposited the fee on last date.. My deposit date is 28th of july and i am trying to apply online from 28th itself.. So now its time for IBPS to say or do something about their technical problem....

RAKESH said...

Due to Technical issues Registration Services is not available now.Services will be resumed soon. Last date for Registration is extended upto 3rd Aug 2011 21:59 hrs


as per IBPS website..............

Ravi Raushan said...

Dear Sir,

Dear Sir,
I am really upset from IBPS services.
I have tried registering for the exam through online and completed the registration in the 3rd try. During the first 2 try I couldn't complete it successfullly. "Transaction failure" message was shown on the window. But Rs.918(459+459) (trans ID: 205585587, 205585725) has been deducted from my account on 21 july 2011. This amount is not yet refunded to my account. I kindly request you to take the matter seriously and refund the amount as soon as possible.

Laypath said...

Thanks for your timely information & guidance...

I think after this exam, all different banks will advertise their different eligibility criteria notification.
