IBPS Specialist Officer Exam: Previous Yr Vacancies & Cutoffs

ibps specialist officer previous year vacancies cutoffs The IBPS specialist officer exams are a wonderful opportunity for professional degree holders to enter into banking sector.BY now, you would have known whether you are eligible to apply for the upcoming IBPS specialist officer common exam 2014.Now take a look at the how specialist officer jobs were created in the previous CWE.


If you had completed BE/ BTech/ MBA/M CA degree & wishing to register for the IBPS specialist officers common written exam, its important to known about the previous results.


How many Spl. Officer vacancies?

Inorder to provide a clear picture, we have compiled the number of vacancies for candidates qualified in the IBPS specialist officer exam 2014.



As you can see from the image above, 4321 vacancies were created under specialist officer (scale I) cadre.Of which

  • Agriculture field officer ranked no.1 with maximum jobs - 3557
  • Marketing officer had 450+ openings
  • IT officer requirement was at 299

Will banks recruit in similar nos. for 2015-16 cannot be predicted at this moment.


No more IT officers?

We are receiving numerous enquires from BE/ Btech graduates asking if they are eligible to apply for IT officer position.But only 299 jobs were available in 10 govt. banks last year.




Many public banks outsource their IT needs to top multi national companies under a contract which includes supplying & providing maintenance of hardware & software.

Hence we believe PSB`s are not very much interested in recruiting large no. of IT officers.

With public sector banks looking to open more branches in rural areas, the demand for agriculture officers is on the rise.This trend is expected to following for the next few years with both the PSB`s & govt. of India aiming to open one bank account per household.


Previous Year Cutoff Scores:

Just like the PO & clerk exams, IBPS also releases cutoff scores for specialist officer exams.  



The cutoffs are a total of your combined scores in written exam & personal interview (out of 100)


Note: Read about the selection process & eligibility conditions as the online registrations for IBPS Specialist Officer exam 2015-16 closes on December 9, 2014.

Q: I turn 20 years only on December 3.Shall I apply for this sbi clerical recruitment?

A: No.The notice clearly mentions the cutoff date as 1.12.2014 & declares those born after 1.12.1994 not eligible.


But if you belong to any reserved category then max.age is relaxed - such as 3 yrs for OBC & 5 yrs for SC/ST


What are the educational qualification that a person must have inorder to register?

Applicants must have completed graduation in any degree as on December 1, 2014


I have 55% in 12th standard, 60% in my degree & belong to OBC.Am I eligible ?

Yes.Applicants from all categories need to have passed in degree.No minimum mark is required.Similarly, your std.XII marks wont be considered while registering.


Should I reside in a state that I submit application for?

Not necessary.State Bank of India has not asked for domicile status & hence you are free to apply for clerk posts in any state even if you are not its resident.


What languages should I know?

Those registering for this SBI recruitment project should be able to write & speak english.


During interview you may be asked few questions in local language to determine your familiarity.So knowledge of regional language would be a plus.


My state has no or less no. of vacancies.Can I apply to other state?

Yes.You can apply for vacancies in any state but remember the following points

  • you will have to appear for the clerical exam from a center located in a state that you apply for.
  • Make sure you have know the local language.Although not compulsory, it can fetch you extra marks in personal interview

If selected, you may have to work in a branch located in that state for first few years.

I don't know the local language of a state.Is that a problem?

It is not a problem but ‘may’ lower your chance of final selection.Since state bank considers it to be an added qualification, the person with language skills could be selected over someone who doesn't know it.



Can I apply for two banks if they have vacancies in a state?

No.You can submit your application for vacancy in any one bank & state only.


for example, In the state of Maharashtra - SBH has 575 posts & SBP offers 30.So, Individuals looking to work in Maharashtra can apply for any 1 of these 2 banks only.

IBPS PO Exam 2014: Scores & Cutoff Marks Released

omr answer sheet for bank exams,how to answer bank exams,ibps po 2014 cutoff scores,ibps po exam 2014 test marks,how do i find my score in ibps po 2014 After a brief lull IBPS is back in news as the institute has opened its gates for those who appeared in its 4th PO common written exam to know their scores.Earlier they were only able to know their status (pass/fail).The institute now makes it possible for you to know about the TWS calculation methods & cutoffs scores.


To apply for probationary officer jobs in public sector banks, IBPS had conducted a pan-India written test on October/ November 2014.


49,000 candidates have qualified in the IBPS PO exam 2014 as per the results announced recently.In 2012, approximately 61,000 aspirants passed the exams.


Although the number of qualifiers is lower than previous years, the cutoff scores have gone up considerably compared to PO exams conducted by IBPS so far.


Scores of Unqualified:

The scores of candidates who couldn't clear the exam are now published by IBPS that can be accessed by entering your roll/ registration no. & password/ date of birth at their website here 


Successful candidates will only see the following message:

Dear Candidate,
You have been shortlisted for Interviews. Scores obtained by you in the online examination will be available, through query based system, on IBPS website after completion of the entire interview process for PO/MT-IV.

Therefore candidates who have passed the test should wait till February/ March 2015 to know their exact scores.


Minimum qualifying scores

The process followed by IBPS for arriving at standard scores are complex as it involves equating, standardizing etc.,The detailed handout can be had from their site


Now we shall look at how cutoffs are implemented.


Sectional Cutoff: To qualify in the common test, you need to have secured a minimum score in each of these test papers:





Quantitative aptitude






English language



Computer knowledge



General awareness




If your score is not above the required limit even in any one section, you are treated as ‘FAIL’.


Total score Cutoffs: On the other hand, calculating TWS (total scores) is easy & can be easily understood. ibps-po-2014-cutoff-marks-calculation


As per the formula, here are category-wise cutoff scores:

ibps-po-2014-total-cutoff-marks,ibps bank exam score,ibps po exam results,ibps common exam scores,how does IBPS calculate PO exam cutoff marks


A candidate is considered qualified only if he/she has scored equal to or above the fixed cutoffs mentioned earlier.


Why 0? 

Some are shocked to see their score as 0 in certain papers & argue they have attended maximum no. of questions in those sections.But there are other ‘factors’ such as,

  • Negative marks: This could have played a vital role in bringing down your score as each wrong answer reduces 0.25 marks.

What matters most is the no. of correct answers, than the the number of answered questions.


Revaluation possible?

Many applicants who have lost their chance by just 1 or 2 marks are enquiring with us about re-checking & re-evaluation of answer sheets.


Unfortunately, there is NO PROVISION to request IBPS for revaluations & hence it is not possible.


To improve your current scores – you will have to appear for the next PO common exam.
