Lets see them!
For the first time, a common test for officer & office assistant vacancies in rural banks was proposed similar to commercial banks.On behalf of 82 RRB`s, IBPS conducted the tests on September 2 & 9, 2012.
Over 10 Lakh Appear!
How many passed could be the biggest question that many would be thinking.The official figures are not known yet but we had already reported of 5.45 lakh people turn up for the officer cadre exams alone. (see 10 lakh eyeing RRB jobs)

What formula does IBPS employ to calculate marks & scores in RRB common exams, could been the single biggest question asked by many.The institute has revealed it,
TWS Score = Standard scores in (Reasoning * 1.25 + Numerical ability/ Quantitative aptitude * 1.25 + General awareness + English/Hindi language + Computer knowledge * 0.50)
The minimum qualifying score in each section for Office assistant (OA) & Officer posts were
- 19 (Gen/OBC) & 17 (SC/ST)
Similarly the min. total weighted standard score (TWS) fixed were,
- OA - 95 (gen/obc) & 89 (sc/st)
- Officer (sc I) – 103 (gen/obc) & 97 (sc/st)
Only those who have secured the above scores in each section & TWS are considered successful in the RRB exams.
10000 Posts may be Filled
The regional rural banks collectively had recruited around 9500 people for officer & assistant level posts in 2011.
It is expected for these RRB`s to fill approx.10000 vacancies this year too according to the IBPS director.
Since these banks are located only in a particular state with just a handful number of branches - one cannot expect huge intake as witnessed in large PSB`s.
No Common Interviews
Ever since the announcement of common interviews for PO & clerk positions was made by the govt, aspirants are eagerly waiting to know its exact procedure.
But IBPS in their results page are advising qualified candidates to watch out for RRB recruitment advertisement & submit individual online applications based on the eligibility notified by each.
In such a scenario, the regional banks will shortlist from applications received only those who have secured sufficiently high marks in CWE.
