Waiting Lists are Possible

Reserve list is nothing different than waiting list.The next set of allotments will be carried out from this list incase banks or any other participating organization announce further vacancies during April 2015 – March 2016


Further rounds of allotment (2nd, 3rd etc.,) may happen in the following scenarios:

  • New vacancies are created for immediate joining during 2015-16
  • If a person chooses to reject the appointment offer
  • If an allotted candidate could not provide the required documents/ certificates asked by the bank, then his/ her offer would be cancelled.

There is no guarantee that all banks will come up further vacancies but it is highly possible just by looking at previous PO recruitments.

SSC CGL Exam in May | SSC Exams Calendar 2015 [Updated]

ssc logo,ssc exams 2015,ssc exams in 2015,ssc jobs in 2015,what jobs are available for ssc exams Given a chance, many people in the private sector would look at shifting to government jobs at some point of time.One of the primary reason behind this mindset is the job security that comes attached with govt. jobs.That is perhaps the main factor for graduates to opt for bank jobs in India in recent times.To start your career in government sector, an individual needs to qualify in the exams conducted by SSC.


Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is the organization entrusted to conduct recruitments for jobs that fall under group B, C, D, defense services etc.,.These posts belong to different state & central government organizations.


The IBPS common exam for bank jobs such as PO, clerk & specialist officers are devised based on this pattern.(see IBPS bank exams new pattern in 2015)


Combined Graduate Level (CGL) exam is one of the hugely popular test that is conducted by SSC, which you might know already.But there are many other recruitments that are held by them which will lead you to a government job.


SSC Exams in 2015

If you or any of your friend is looking to appear for government jobs in 2015, then the exam calendar for the upcoming year will be useful.


Update on April 1, 2015: The commission has postponed the dates for their popular Combined Graduate Level (Tier I) exams to the month of May 2015


 SSC exams schedule 2015,ssc-exams-in-india-2015,ssc exam calendar 2015,what exams are to be conducted in 2015 by SSC,SSC 2015 exams


For the complete list of examinations planned for the year ahead, download their official notification of 2015 calendar from the webpage here (.pdf)


What Jobs can you Apply?

Having known the recruitment dates, the next question in your mind will be – What jobs are available for qualifiers of these exams?


Based on previous year intake, we have compiled a list of posts that are regularly notified through competitive exams of SSC.

  • Lower Division Clerks
  • Grade “C” and Grade ‘D” Stenographers
  • Assistants in the various Ministries/Departments (Govt. of India)
  • Inspectors in Central Excise & Income-Tax
  • Sub-Inspectors in CBI and Central Police Organisations
  • Junior Engineers in CPWD
  • Statistical Investigators
  • Section Officer in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department
  • Divisional Accountants, Auditors and Accountants under the Office of Comptroller and Auditor General of India and other Accounts Departments
  • Tax Assistant (Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) & Central Board of Excise and Customs)

As you can see, the commission mostly announces recruitment exams for Group B, C & D cadre positions in various ministries/ depts. of Indian government.


So if you are searching for upcoming govt. jobs in India & want to appear for govt. exams, the above SSC calendar for the year 2015-16 should be helpful.


Bank Jobs vs. SSC Jobs:

ssc jobs vs bank jobs,bank jobs or govt jobs,ssc jobs vs bank jobs,should i choose bank jobs over ssc jobs This is one of the biggest question that we encounter whenever any notification of SSC is published.


Infact, there is nothing called SSC jobs since SSC is just an organization like IBPS that fills vacancies in govt. departments through respective selection process.


Incase if you wish to compare, it should be taken as bank jobs vs. govt. jobs filled through SSC.To answer such a doubt, here is our comparison so everyone can understand & benefit.

  • Although banks are owned by Govt. of India, its employees don’t come under the govt. directly like the ones directly employed by Govt.
  • Salary hikes/ wage revisions announced by the government are meant for those directly employed by them & NOT for those in public banks.
  • Banks decide on salary issue through unions with the govt. (This is the reason for numerous strikes that are held regularly)
  • Employees in a bank have to deal with customers daily while its not a necessity in other govt. jobs (except few depts.)

Finally, bank jobs cannot be compared with those filled through SSC as their profiles, & responsibilities are completely different.


We feel this article would have given you an overview of the things to expect from SSC in 2015 while answering some of your long standing doubts.So are you going to apply for the exams?

IBPS PO III, Clerk III & SO III Reserve List Allotments Completed

IBPS is back in action after a brief silence but this is for its PO, Clerk & Specialist Officer recruitment conducted in 2014.They also packed in some good news for those candidates who were in the reserve list by allotting them to various banks. There was a lot of confusion over the fate of those in the waiting list but this news is should bring smiles onto their faces.

A reserve list (waiting list) was also created for PO III, Clerk III & Spl. Officer III selection process with people who had secured slightly lower marks.It was done to make sure that if someone doesn't join a bank, the next eligible person could be allotted. bank job congrats

A list containing the names & roll. nos. of those who made in this final allotment shall be made available on IBPS website before April 16th, says the official release.

Therefore, they have now formally announced the END of all the selection procedures involved in allotting candidates chosen through IBPS CWE 2014-15.


So don't expect anymore announcements about 2nd or 3rd waiting list.It is not going to happen.

  • Paper I & II for Junior Engineer (Civil, Electrical, Mechanical) & AG – III (Accounts & Technical)
  • Paper III for Typist (Hindi)

As reasoning (verbal & non-verbal) & aptitude are considered the most important, they have included the different types of questions that a candidate may encounter in each of these parts.


for example, Analogy chapter provides examples on how to distinguish, find & decide about the relation between words.In addition to it, they have also given tips on how to answer such question correctly by detailing the common mistakes that one could make.


After introducing the concept, there are solved examples for which answers are provided along with explanations.So the next time you come across a similar problem, you will know the exact steps that should be performed.


A Basic Guide to Buy

Although this guide covers the test syllabus, we felt the publishers could have provided more exercises so that candidates can practice different models.Also there is no previous year solved paper.

You can definitely buy this BOB Manipal exam guide as a starting point to know the various types of questions, explanations & few shortcut tricks.

We are suggesting the above books so it supplements the original guide & also it can be easily bought by anyone.


Exam Difficulty Level:

Although BOB hasn't mentioned anything about the level of questions, the pattern looks similar to that of IBPS PO exams.So expect moderate – difficult questions as there are only limited seats available per batch.


We contacted few candidates who appeared for last year`s test.

Though they were not able to recollect the question paper, most agreed that reasoning & quantitative aptitude sections played the tricky part.

Since the period to prepare for baroda manipal`s test is pretty long we suggest all applicants to devote extra time for those two papers during preparations.


Announcement of Results:

The first batch of Baroda Manipal School of Banking`s 2015 PO training is expected to start at their Bangalore campus after July 2015.


So in all probability one can look forward for the test results by April – May end that`ll pave way for GD & interviews in the month of June.

IBPS invites applications for PO, Clerk, Specialist Officer, RRB Officer & Office assistant exams from candidates who have passed in degree.See eligibility conditions for bank exams in 2015 

This means, a candidate may have secured 40% aggregate but if his/ her college has awarded a pass class, then they ARE ELIGIBLE for all IBPS bank exams.


There are some exceptions to this rule.Private sector banks like ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Kotak Bank, Federal Bank,Tamilnad Mercantile Bank etc., still ask for 55% or 60% in degree.


So don't believe in websites that advise you to have 60% in degree to apply for upcoming bank exams.They are just trying to create panic in your mind.
