A: No.The notice clearly mentions the cutoff date as 1.08.2012 & declares those born after 1.08.1994 not eligible.

Applicants must have completed 12th std. with atleast 60% marks (55% for SC/ST)
OR should have secured pass class in graduation.
I have 55% in 12th standard, 60% in my degree & belong to OBC.Am I eligible ?
Yes.Applicants from all categories need to have passed in degree.No minimum mark is required.
Should I reside in a state that I submit application for?
Not necessary.State Bank of India has not asked for domicile status & hence you are free to apply for clerk posts in any state even if you are not its resident.

During interview you may be asked few questions in local language to determine your familiarity.
My state has no or less no. of vacancies.Can I apply to other state?
Yes but remember the following points
If selected, you may have to work in a branch located in that state for first few years.
I don't know the local language of a state.Is that a problem?
It is not a problem but ‘may’ lower your chance of final selection.Since state bank considers it to be an added qualification, the person with language skills could be selected over someone who doesn't know it.
Can I apply for two banks if they have vacancies in a state?
No.You can submit your application for vacancy in any one bank & state only.
for example, In the state of Tamilnadu state bank of travancore (SBT) has 280 posts & State bank of Mysore offers 78.Individuals looking to work in TN can apply for any 1 of these 2 banks only.
I am waiting for final semester/year results.Is it possible for me to apply?

By the time interview process starts you can provide degree/ provisional certificates.
I am currently in 3rd year of college.If appointed, can I join the bank after my course completion?
You will have to discuss about joining dates with the bank directly & if reporting is immediate, they might not entertain your request.
