Now, Why you did not Qualify?

Disappointments are inevitable in competitive exams as large no. of people apply for a handful of jobs.While some are rejoicing at their results, many are not happy to see a sorry message on the status screen.


One of the main reason citied by unsuccessful candidates is the difficulty level of paper.


We don't think it was too high because such a difficult paper is only expected in SBI as they normally shortlist only a few from lakhs of applicants.


How many number of candidates got selected for main exams?

State Bank of India has not revealed the exact nos. but as per their notification, approx. 45,000 - 48,000 candidates may have got selected for mains.


But one thing is very clear.It is not enough for a person to just pass in all subjects but should possess high marks in each section so that his/ her total is in the safe region.
