Expected Cutoff Marks for IBPS Clerk 2012 Exam, Common Interview

IBPS Clerk 2012 expected cutoff marks for Common Interview. The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has conducted the (IBPS Clerk 2012) Online Common Written Exam (CWE) for the recruitment of clerical staff in nationalized banks on 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd December and a re-exam on 29th of December, 2012 across India.

As the buzz of IBPS Clerk 2012 exam is over, the candidates are looking for the expected cutoff marks to get call for the Common Interview and expected cutoff marks for final selection in banks.

Keeping in mind the number of vacancy to be filled by Public Sector Banks this financial year – 84,500 -my analysis suggests that this year we may see mass recruitment by the nationalized banks thru IBPS Clerk 2012 Exam and subsequent IBPS Common Interview.

84,500 people to be hired by public sector banks this year – P Chidambaram

In 2011, Over 30 lakh candidates appeared in the IBPS clerk 2011 exam and as many as 5.31 lakh candidates have passed the first ever CWE for clerks. But, a rough calculation suggests that not more than 17,000 people got job thru IBPS Clerk 2011 exam.

Recently we conducted a poll on our facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/BankingAwareness) where we saw many candidates failed to get a job despite scoring over 170 marks in IBPS Clerk 2011 exam.

(Question URL – https://www.facebook.com/questions/538005852877567/)

According to the Finance Minister P. Chidambram, the public sector banks will hire 84,500 personnel out of which Nationalized Bank (except State Bank of India) will recruit around 20, 000 clerical personnel.

In IBPS PO 2012 exam, only 61,339 Candidates qualified for Common Interview with 3:1 ratio with the proposed vacancy of around 22,000. In 2012, around 35 lakh candidates appeared (un-official data) in the IBPS Clerk 2012 exam and it will be interesting to see how many candidates  declared as qualified – whether 3:1 or 5:1 with the proposed vacancy of 20, 000 or any other ratio – by IBPS.

IBPS Clerk 2012 Expected Cut-off Marks for Common Interview and Final Selection:

Category Common Interview Final Selection*
General 115
OBC 110
SC 105
ST 95
PWD 95

* – Can’t comment on Final Selection Score until IBPS issues the Notification of Common Interview for Clerks with marks allotted for Common Interview.

This is my personal view keeping in mind the nature of IBPS and the proposed vacancy. It may not be 100% correct but it will be around this score only. Please share your views in comments section.

  1. Sir When we get our written test result, we are eagerly waiting Pls tell us probable date of result…

  2. my attempted 151 quesion……expected 130 markes…..wt will my chance….

  3. may be feb ending or 1st week of march

  4. ranjan sharma says:

    last time i also pass my ibps exam but can’t be come in merit plz.can’t do this matter this time…

  5. I gave the re-exam on 29th december and attempted 191 quesstions with 80% accuracy. Do you think that I have a good chance at qualifying for the common interview? My attempts at each section
    I’m a ganeral candidate from West Bengal

  6. but compared 2 other session of exam(16th 22th 23th and 29th); ..15 th december 2012 exam was really very tough …. and we are not saticefied 2 this behaviour of ibps

  7. 15 th ke paper ko kuch advantage milega kya. 15 ko paper sabshe tougth tha………

  8. What is the use of these marks as candidates who are 20 marks above the qualifying marks declared by IBPS do not get a chance to appear for the interview.Why don’t IBPS fix such criteria that above a certain marks everybody gets a call.Atleast a candidate will then be satisfied that he/she has not cleared the written examination.
    After clearing the written if one does not gets a chance to prove his/her mettle then making such candidates pass in written exam holds no meaning.
    Common interview:When will that be formalized and will it be from this time on still remains a very big unanswered  question.

  9. When are the results expected for Clerk-2 exams?
    Anybody any rough idea?

  10. Manoj-Advantage to milna chahiye but holding exams in different slots and on different dates calls for a process called normalisation,to bring all parametres regarding a paper to a common platform but whether it will be adopted by IBPS again ??????????????????????????????? 

  11. Tonytitus2000 says:

    last years cut off was 24 /section that is 48% of 50 questions , this time it was of 40 questions per section ,so  i guess48% of 40 question is 19.2 , sectional cutoff would be 19, to final cutoof 19* 5 = 95 , 
    these statistics are for general…

  12. ibps is not transparent abt   the recruitment process. the candidates r suffering…the unemployed r suffering…banks are giving loss 2 d indian economy…….ibps r nothing but a recruitment agent savin money 4 bankssss

  13. Rickyrulez12 says:

    I agree the cutoff for common interview will around 110-115 for gen category and 140+ may be a safe zone.

  14. What about the candidates who are qualified in the IBPS CWE CLERKS 2011…not even a single chance is given to us..same candidates are being interviewed by all the banks..this is not fair…getting less than 150 marks doesn’t mean that we don’t have suffient knowledge,..etc..etc.all the quqlified candidates of ibps cwe clerks 2011 should get a chance for the interview…

  15. I confidence in IBPS-2 2012 180 score & got chance in common

    I have got 60 out of 100. I come under OBC category. I am from TamilNadu. So kindly tell me what would be the cut off marks for the candidates in Tamilnadu for IBPS clerical 2012. Is there any possibility for getting placed. To my knowledge, I am definite about getting placed. Still I would like to know the expected cut off for TamilNadu which can be an approximate one. I would like to know your view for TamilNadu so that this may help other candidates too.
