    IBPS PO Exam Cutoffs of Previous Years & Calculation Methods

    Candidates_taking_IBPS_PO_Online_Exam,how to calculate IBPS po exam cutoffs,IBPS po exam cutoffs for previous years The IBPS PO common exam 2014 is round the corner & you would be busy in the last leg of preparations.No matter how ready candidates are, there is one question that keeps haunting many.It is - what are the previous years IBPS PO exam cutoffs.Since IBPS written exam marks decide the qualifying status of an individual, it is considered most important.


    Ever year, atleast 8 – 12 lakh apply for the IBPS PO exam but not more than 80,000 candidates (around 10%) qualify in the common written test.


    After the common interviews are conducted, only the top 20,000 scorers are able to get appointment in a public sector bank.


    Read about Cutoff Calculation | Previous Year Cutoffs | Final Cutoffs


    Only 3% get Bank Jobs

    Look at the numbers – 20,000 from a group of 8,00,000.It is very clear that just 3% are able to get bank jobs after cracking the IBPS PO selection process.

    This not only shows the demand for bank jobs in India but the rising trend of youngsters wanting to become part of the banking sector shunning the IT.

    Last year, govt. banks had notified 21,680 PO vacancies through IBPS CWE.Based on the combined marks, candidates were given allotment.


    How Bank Exam Cutoffs are Calculated?

    First, you must understand about how IBPS implements the cutoff marks after every exam.It goes through the below process:

    • Based on the no. of correct answers in each objective test, a corrected score is arrived.
    • Corrected scores are then converted to Equated scores by taking into account the difficulty level of the exam.
    • These final scores are taken as cutoffs.

    The institute has not revealed the exact formula of converting the original marks into corrected & equated scores.

    Cutoffs are being applied in two stages in the PO exam, that are:

    • on each section of the objective test
    • on the total score

    IBPS PO Exam Previous Year Cutoffs

    The following tables will help you know the IBPS PO – III (held in 2013) individual cutoff marks

    IBPS_PO_III_Previous_year_Cutoffs,what are the previous year cutoffs of IBPS PO exam,IBPS PO exam previous year cutoff marks


    It is not enough for you to secure the above scores in each test.There exists a separate cutoff on total marks as well.


    IBPS_PO_III_Previous_year_Cutoff_Marks, how to calculate IBPS PO cutoffs,ibps PO exam cutoff marks calculation


    After the completion of interviews, the final combined scores are considered for appointment as PO in banks.


    Candidates should compulsorily achieve both the cutoff marks.They would only then be declared as qualified in the written exam & become eligible to appear for common interviews.


    Allotment Cutoffs

    The combined scores (maximum & maximum) for each category for the selection exercise conducted in 2013 are:


    how many candidates were allotted bank jobs in 2013,2013 ibps po cutoffs


    The combined scores are for a total of 100, which is a combination of your common exam + interview marks.


    2012 Cutoffs: IBPS had a different PO exam pattern in the year 2012 & maximum marks allotted for each section was also different.22415 PO jobs were offered then.


    For example, the descriptive paper on english has been removed from 2013 CWE onwards.It is also not a part of the upcoming IBPS PO exam 2014.


    Hence we have not mentioned about the performance of candidates during that year.
