It looks as if announcements from banks come in lots.On a day when two banks are starting their recruitments, Bank of Baroda (BOB) has released the interview dates for their PO vacancies.Also to note is here, BOB has opened online registrations for clerical posts as well.
To fill 600 PO positions, Bank of Baroda invited applications from IBPS scorecard holders in February 2012.In just 18 days the bank has shortlisted the eligible candidates for Interviews.
2900 to be Interviewed
Approximately around 2950 candidates have been picked for the Interview process, as per the official notice published by BoB.Lookout for your roll number in the document by downloading the file from their website here (pdf file).
Interviews are planned to be held from April 16 to 23, 2012 – details of which are being sent to candidates through email & sms.
They are also informed to collect their call letters from BOB website directly & no post communication shall be made.
Who made the Cut?
Like other banks, Bank of Baroda has also publicly revealed the category-wise cutoffs. Those with or above these scores will proceed to the next stage of selection.
According to BOB`s recruitment advt, the ratio of post:candidates were fixed at 1:4 (Gen) & 1:5 (others).Although the above list does not provide any info on category wise selections, we believe it could be more or less inline with the ratio.
Earlier, the minimum TWS to submit applications were mentioned as 125 (Gen/OBC) & 105 (SC/ST)
