It has become very common for graduates from all disciplines to aspire for bank jobs in India.Even those who are working in other fields are looking to enter the banking sector.It is primarily due to the streamlined selection process in the form of IBPS common bank exams for govt. bank recruitments.But do you know there are other ways to apply for bank jobs without IBPS exam scores?
The Government of India has mandated Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) to conduct recruitments on behalf of all the public sector banks in India.
So if you wish to become an Officer or Clerk in any of the 24 state owned banks, you should have qualified in the IBPS CWE (common written exam) & interviews.
50,000 Bank Jobs through IBPS:
The IBPS common examinations are conducted once a year with separate tests for each post – PO, Clerk, Specialist Officer & Regional Rural Banks (RRB).See below for the steps involved:
- Online registration of applications & fee payment
- Online written test
- Common Interviews
- Job allotment
After you appear for the online test, IBPS shall fix a minimum cutoff for each category & only those candidates who are above it shall be shortlisted for personal interviews.
For the past 2 years, approx. 50,000 vacancies (PO & Clerk cadre) had been filled in public banks alone.
Can`t I apply without IBPS Score?
Although the common bank exams have reduced the time taken by banks to complete hiring, it is not advantageous for bank job aspirants.Why?
There are many people who spend atleast 6-8 months in preparing for these tests.But if they are not able to qualify, they have no other choice but should wait for another year to re-apply.
For long we had such candidates asking us this question – Which other bank jobs can I apply without IBPS scores?
This is the right time to answer them as new bank vacancies have been announced that doesn’t require IBPS CWE.They are:
