IBPS PO 2012 Cutoff Marks Analysis. The 2nd Common Written Examination (CWE) for the recruitment of Probationary Officer/ Management Trainee in Public Sector/several Private Sector banks Conducted by Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) on June 17, 2012 (Sunday) and IBPS set one of the toughest question paper in the recent history of the institution.
After doing some survey (on our Facebook page and two Facebook groups) and listing to some of the candidate’s version we have found that many of the candidates were worried about their paper. Even we have found candidates who didn’t write anything in descriptive paper after having a ‘spoiled’ exam. Most of the candidates have found reasoning and mathematics part to be very tough compared to other paper.
Looking at the level of questions and considering the number of attempts by students in the survey, we found that individual sectional cut-off will be much lower for this 2nd CWE Exam. First of all we have to understand one thing, IBPS uses Liner Conversion Method to convert obtained marks in a Standardized Score. We have seen in the 1st IBPS PO exam that there is a difference between Obtained Marks and Standardized Marks and it’s always higher that the obtained marks.
After consulting our experts with the results of our sample survey, we have analyzed the cutoff marks for each section with considering the facts of 1st IBPS CWE PO/MT Exam.
