    IBPS RRB Officers & Assistants Exam 2014 – Cutoff Scores Announced!

    ibps rrb results 2014,ibps rrb officer exam results,ibps rrb officer recruitment results,IBPS rrb exam 2014 cutoff marksThe results of common written exam for officer jobs in Regional Rural Banks were released by IBPS today.The common written examination for office assistant & officers post in regional rural banks (RRB) is being conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection every year.



    What's next for these passouts & most importantly how will they be chosen? Lets see them!


    There are 56 RRBs across India that feature in the list of participating banks from various states .Hence those looking for bank jobs in India but were not able to get through PO & clerk selections appear for this IBPS RRB CWE in large numbers.


    Check your Result Status:

    Now with the IBPS releasing the results for the online test held in the month of September 2014, one question that many would have in their minds is - How many passed in the RRB exam?


    In the past, approximately 10 lakh candidates had taken part in these examinations.Hence we expect a similar number of people to have appeared this year too.For official figures, you need to wait for the institute to publish them on their website.


    Latest Update: The IBPS RRB exam 2014 results are now viewable. Login at this webpage here with your roll no, birth date etc., to check whether you have qualified for the next stage or not.


    Cutoff Marks Declared

    Now you can see your scores & also get to know the category-wise list scores.See the below table for minimum qualifying score in each section & combined.


    IBPS-RRB-Office-Assistant-Cutoff-Scores,ibps rrb exam cutoff marks,how much to score to qualify in ibps rrb exams


    IBPS-RRB-Officer-Scale-I-Cutoff-Scores,IBPS RRB exam cutoff marks 2014


    For all those candidates who are unclear about the scoring methodology here are certain quick facts that would help you in understand the process better.

    • Cutoffs are applied at two levels – section-wise & total-wise
    • There are 5 sections as part of online test.You will have to secure a minimum score (fixed by IBPS) in each section.
    • On total score: Similarly, a separate cutoff shall be fixed on the total score that you should attain.

    Only those who have secured the above scores are declared QUALIFIED in the RRB exams.


    Interviews for each Bank

    There exists a common interview procedure for PO & clerk positions.But rural banks don't follow such a structure.

    IBPS has clearly advised qualified candidates to watch out for RRB recruitment advertisements & submit individual online applications based on the eligibility notified by each.

    The regional banks would then shortlist from applications received & call them for personal interviews.

    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 around 6000-8000 vacancies this year too as per the experts.

    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.

    Cracking SBI Associate PO: Last Minute Tips & Topics to Cover

    sbi computer exams The SBI Associate PO exam begins on November 9th for 2986 posts in the five SBI Associate Banks. The exam pattern is expected to be on similar lines as the SBI PO held earlier this year. Below we list some of the most important topics for SBI Associate PO and how you should be preparing during the lat hours that can help you on exam day.


    Given the proximity of the exam, it is likely that you have finished learning concepts and are in the practice mode. You should ideally be taking mock tests and improving on your weak topics while also building exam taking strategies (as time is a key factor with 200 Questions in 120 minutes).


    Last Minute Tips on Topics:

    While there are many important topics, we have just covered a few based on number of questions & suggested approaches:


    Data Interpretation & Analysis: This has been the most worrisome topic for many aspirants and one can expect 45 - 50 questions on Charts & Tables. ie almost the entire section.

    Going by the trend of both SBI PO and IBPS PO exams this year, DI has been very calculation intensive and it is likely that a similar experience awaits at the SBI Associate PO as well.

    While the DI sets were not exactly the toughest, most students struggled with managing time on the calculation intensive DI sets as well as attempting what they believe will be a good number of questions.

    • Make it a habit to look at answer options before solving. If the numbers provided in the 5 options are all far apart, then you can do very quick approximations and find the right answer.
    • Avoid unnecessary calculations and rely heavily on approximation techniques unless answer options are very close. For eg: 371/612 can be approximated to 36/6 or 37/6 and arrive at ~ 0.6 or 60%

    If you are still not confident of certain chapters in this section, don't worry.Practice with previous year solved papers or take up mock tests provided by online websites such as Oliveboard, who offers 10 Mock Tests of SBI Associate PO in the new pattern.The first test if Free. Click here to take it.


    sbi computer test


    Reading Comprehension: There will be 20 questions around this. Passages can be lengthy and a quick way to approach these passages can be to:

    • Read the questions before reading the passage.
    • Since most questions on Bank PO exams are specific detail questions, answers can be quickly found by reading all the questions and quickly skimming through the passages.

    Although the SBI Associate Bank PO exam is conducted online, you have the option to view the question paper completely on screen itself.But remember not to overspend your precious time in looking at the questions.


    General Awareness, Marketing & Computer Knowledge: While it might be difficult to improve General Knowledge in a short span, you can quickly go through GK supplements and digests being published on popular websites or practice topic-wise GK and month wise Current Affairs questions.
