In India, search for jobs starts right from the college especially during final year of studies.While some aspire to get into top private companies few others lookout for opportunities in public sector hoping for secured future.Hence it’s always common to see students prepare for various governmental exams while still in college.
With the number of bank jobs on the rise for the past couple of years, many are focusing on cracking bank exams.BankExamsIndia.com has been receiving questions from such people asking if they can take up these IBPS tests while in college.
Things have changed aplenty on this front.So we have put together the rules that shall help those currently pursuing degree to better understand their positions.
Who can apply for IBPS Common Exams?
Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) is the organization that conducts common written examinations for probationary officer & clerk level posts in 20 public sector banks.To register for CWE, applicants have to fulfill certain conditions that include age, education etc
|The Govt. of India had recommended changes in eligibility criteria that were implemented for the recently concluded clerk exams.According to it only graduates were allowed to take part in clerks selection.Previously the minimum qualification was 60% marks in 12th std.|
So students in final year/semester cannot apply for IBPS common test anymore with their school marks.Similarly, even graduates with 60% in degree are only required for PO jobs hereafter.
Can I apply for SBI jobs?
While discussing about government jobs, its hard to keep away State Bank of India.
For their previous clerical recruitment - applications from candidates with either degree pass or 50% in std.XII were invited.This prompted students undergoing graduation also to apply.
On successful appointment, some even discontinued their regular college to opt for correspondence/ distance education courses.Such is the value of getting a job in India`s largest bank.
Although 20,000 openings are to be filled - State Bank of India has not issued any new recruitment notices after the condition changes in other PSBs.Their official stand will be known only when SBI recruitments in 2013 are announced.
So if there isn't any modification final year students can apply for SBI clerk jobs.
