Bank of India today released the notice calling for Interviews as part of its clerical recruitment project 2011-12.It was one of the first banks to announce hiring after IBPS completed their common exam for clerical cadre positions. Read on to know more about the selection process & the way forward..
To fill 3149 clerk vacancies (largest till now), Bank of India had invited online applications from IBPS qualified - scorecard holders in the month of April 2012. The minimum TWS score was fixed for each state category wise apart from the sectional score of 24 (Gen) & 21 (others)
In addition to this, graduates & HSC pass-outs were also eligible to apply.
BoI has shortlisted 12199 candidates for Interviews based on their TWS score that was specified earlier in their advertisement.Although the list contains the roll no & applicant`s state – there is no info about their categories.
Interviews are scheduled to start from June 11, 2012 & call letters for the same can be printed from June 1 directly at BOI`s website from a link that would be activated next month.
The complete doc containing the names of people can be downloaded from their website here (pdf file)
Final selection shall be done by preparing a merit list by taking into account the CWE & Interview marks & ranking them in descending order (top to bottom)
What is the cutoff?
Sometime back, we posted an analysis titled ‘Expected cutoffs for BOI clerks’ about the cutoffs that Bank of India might fix.We made use of the score ranges given by IBPS & compared it with the bank`s notification.
Now with the official announcement for Interview out, BOI has uploaded the cutoffs for each state & category.Download it from here
As per the official notice,
- The bank has called candidates from each category in the ratio of 1:3
- Cutoffs for General & OBC are same for many states, while few have higher OBC scores.
- This has proved OBC cutoffs need not be always lower than gen, as believed by some bank job aspirants.
Congratulations to those who have secured a call from Bank of India.Glance through our article on preparing for interview.
