There were confusion and rumor floating around after a Hindi Daily covered a news on Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) and the present multiple selection issue.
Summary of that article follows:
- Almost all banks have declared for two cutoff marks: one for applying and one for getting Group Discussion/Personal Interview Call. In this process many aspirants have wasted their money.
- Candidates who have secured higher marks are getting multiple interview call and selected in more than one bank. But there are thousands of candidates out there who didn’t even receive a single interview call from any banks.
- AK Bhattacharya, New director of IBPS, said that the CWE Score Card of IBPS PO 1 will become invalid after IBPS published the result of 2nd IBPS CWE PO.
CWE Score Card Validity:
When we asked about whether the CWE Score Card of IBPS PO/MT 1 will become invalid after the result of 2nd IBPS CWE PO/MT declared?
A senior IBPS officer said, ‘First of all, let me clarify that all CWE Score Card issued by IBPS have it’s own issue date and it’s respective Expiry Date (Validity of 1 year from the date of issue). CWE scorecards expires when its validity ends but their is no way it can become invalid/blocked.’
But when we asked that the article quoted the new director of IBPS Mr. AK Bhattacharya the officer said, ‘At my level, i don’t have any information on this issue; other than what I’ve told you. But i can assure you that there is no way score card of any IBPS exam can become Invalid/Blocked before it’s validity ends’.
Multiple Selection of Candidates and position of IBPS:
‘We are well aware of this problem, we have have instructed our research team to conduct research and find a practical way out of this problem and at the same time finance ministry is looking for a way out of this problem. We are working to improve the Common Written Exam (CWE)’. Because as much the candidates are worried it is a problem for banks also who have invested substantial amount in IBPS project.
‘Our main job is to conduct Common Written Exams for banks and other financial institutions, we are doing our job but the problem actually lies with individual bank. To find out a practical solution IBPS will soon meet the participating banks’, he added.
Tips for Bank Aspirants:
When we have asked that senior officer for any tips for bank aspirants?
