We know you may still have some doubts about the IBPS clerk regional language proficiency and hence we have tried to answer some of the frequently asked question below.

 

I only know to speak a language but dont know to read or write.Can I apply for that state?

No.You are not eligible to apply for that specific state.

 

Lets say, you are working in Bangalore & know to speak kannada.But you cannot apply for that state because, to get clerk post in Karnataka state, you should be able to read, write & speak kannada language.

 

Those of you who only know to speak or read but cannot write – are not eligible to apply for that particular state.

 

Which states have Hindi as its regional language?

Bihar, Chandigarh, Chattisgarh,Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya pradesh, New Delhi, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand are the states that consider hindi as their official language for ibps clerk recruitment 2017.

I did not study the regional language in school? Can I still apply?

Yes, you can still apply.

 

At the time of appointment, banks may conduct a language proficiency test to test the candidate`s ability.

 

Can I get transfer to my home state later after joining in another state?

While some banks don't allow clerk transfers from one state to other, some banks do permit them.

 

So it entirely depends on the transfer policy of each bank.So we cannot guarantee any transfers between states.

 

Whichever location you get posted initially, be ready to work within that state for the first few years.

ibps-rrb-prelims-exam-pattern

 

September 9: Candidates, termed the paper to range between easy to moderate. Though solvable, some questions were tricky is what many felt.

 

Though majority of questions were from expected chapters, few problems in quantitative aptitude was taking too long to solve.

 

Due to this, candidates had to allot more time in understanding it & use appropriate method to arrive at the correct answer.The breakup of questions from the paper are given below.

 

Quantitative Aptitude: As usual, the problems in quants consumed time because of its calculative nature.It had questions from:

  • Number series - 5

  • Data interpretation – 10 to 15
  • Quadratic equations – 5
  • Approximation/ Simplification: 5
  • Inquality: 5
  • Other topics – 10 (Profit Loss, Partnerships, Average,Time & Work, CI/ SI, Average, Ratio, Proportion, Percentage, Boats & Stream.

Good number of attempts: 22 - 30

  • Puzzles & Arrangments: 15 – 20

Expected IBPS RRB Prelims Cutoffs

Predicting cutoff scores for a common bank exam written by over 10 lakh people is absolutely not possible.

 

But by looking at previous or similar tests & taking those factors into account, we have managed to pinpoint the range within which the cutoffs could fall.

 

Safe Attempts: Most have attended between 40 – 60 questions in ibps RRB officer (scale I) prelims exam, while very few managed to attempt more than 60 questions.

 

If you are looking for the IBPS RRB 2017 prelims expected cutoffs, we hope it could fall in the following region:

 

Section-wise:

Reasoning: 15 -  20

Quantitative aptitude: 12 – 16

 

Accuracy: All those who were cool during the course of the test inspite of the short time can secure decent scores.The reason why I say this is because of negative marks.

 

Candidates who rushed to complete at the last minute may find their scores going down further as their no. of wrong answers increase.Therefore it could be a close call for many individuals.

I want home state posting.Which bank to choose?

Home state/ city postings are not guaranteed for PO (officer) jobs in banks.

 

IBPS has clearly stated that candidates should be willing to work anywhere in India as PO position is an all india cadre & can be posted/ transferred as decided by the bank.

So, dont expect to get posting within your home state.

 

Is there state-wise cutoffs in IBPS PO 2017 exams?

There are no state wise cutoffs.

 

There are no vacancies in few banks.Will they announce later?

So out of the 20 participating banks, only 9 banks have notified 3562 vacancies, this year.

7 banks have reported NIL vacancies.They are: Bank of Baroda, IDBI Bank, Indian Overseas Bank, Punjab & Sind Bank, Syndicate Bank, United Bank of India, Vijaya Bank.

 

4 banks have not communicated their vacancies to IBPS.They are: Dena bank, Indian bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce and Punjab National Bank.These banks may announce vacancies at a later state, which would also be announced, only in the month of March 2018.   

 

All banks that have not reported vacancy positions, this year are struggling with abundant NPAs and it is the reason behind them to stop from recruiting any new employees, this season.

 

IBPS on the other hand has kept option open by saying the vacancy list is only temporary & will be updated incase banks create new posts in future.
