      Im having same marks like you

      dont worry ,try for another IBPS.

  51. Sunil_dollars says:

    hi all,
    first we accept the comment of ibps director Mr. M. Balachandran as the total number of people applying for bank position is several times higher than the vaccancy. But one thing we can communicate is that the exam conduted by IBPS  PO is a competitive exam and it is not a school level or a college level exam where we only go according through marks
    Here in banks more practical knowledge and management skills are required to excel at work as many experts aware of that, but still this idea is not reflecting in any of the recruitment teams of the announced banks so far is really disgusting.
    For a SC category min TWS announced by Syndicate bank was 150 for interview , canara bank–146, Union bank–149, Corporation Bank–162.
    the message which i want to communicate behind the whole story is that, a canditate who have secured 135 out of 150 in written exam will be more talented in management & practical knowledge, since it is a competitive exam a matter of time will change the scores of the canditates,
    any how the personal interview or GD carries a seperate score apart from the written exam score, canditates who scores more altogether are finally given appointment, there are definetely many chances where a canditate score more in written & less in interview & vice versa.
    rather than targetting only few people who have secured 150 & above, some banks can come up and give chances to people to attend interview who have secured 135 & above and this will definetely improve the productivity & efficiency in business.
    all the notification announced banks can start their interview process immediately once their closing dates for applying are over which will give chances to many people in different scores.

  52. hi guys think having scores less than 155 (Gen)  have no chances this time its  better not to waste time & money. start preparation for next PO

  53. Amit Saharan says:

  74. got 151..gen category…what are the chances for getting an interview call ?? looking at the cut off of various banks it seems they are calling repetitively the same students for interview…is there any provision where once you are selected with any bank your score card is nullified automatically ..pls reply..thanks 

    • no such provisions at all IBPS is King now its depend upon them no hope for 150plus candidates want to know cause why overlapping file a PIL otherwise nothing gonna change this process its as it is 

      • hmm..but read somewhere if u r selected in one particular bank ur score card is nullified automatically…not sure though and looking at the cut off of BOI picture has become all more blurred..cut off is gettin high instead of comin down..that’s so demotivating…did you applied for SO exam as well?

        • Mishraavijay says:

          better prepare for next exam and try to score more then 180. I m also a gen candidate and my score is 162 and still waiting for my first interview call. i don’t think that I will be finally selected this time. So I had given SO exam and now preparing for next IBPS PO exam. Best of luck for next time.

          • hmm i still think ppl who scored above 155 have fair chances as sbi po & sbi associate po result is also out , so some woulddef  opt for that..newyz how was the so exam..you appeared for which discipline?? any idea about the cut off…

        • It is my first and last PO exam , IBPS is a gamble no transparency in the process ,here luck plays a great role rather than hard work m nt going to spoil my time for another IBPS its a cheater , am heading for other exams also 

    • Richa your score is a bit low.. U r having more chance study well n appear in coming ibps exam.. fr any further assistace u can mail on grasimaiq@yahoo:disqus .com

  75. frnds do mail to IBPS/ NEWS PAPERS/BANK HRs of ( Canara,PNB,BOB,INDIAN,UNITED,UCO and AlAHABAD BANK ) regarding this overlapping problem if they get thousands of mails they take it seriously we are doing our part and its a common problem we have to make it correct otherwise you may not get even a chance to face the interview 

  76. I got 161(gen catgry) in PO exam. do i get a chance to appear for an interview.
