Difficult IBPS 2012 Paper: What Next?

Yesterdays IBPS PO Exam was really tough. After doing a survey of more than 2000 students, who appeared for this exam yesterday, we found that students are now more worried than they were before the exam. Around 92 % students found reasoning part to be  very tough and around 80 % people maths to be tough.

What will be individual cutoffs for this IBPS Exam

Looking at the level of question paper and considering the number of attempts by students in the survey, we found that individual sectional cut-off will be much lower this time (as compared to IBPS 1.0. We expect following cut-offs for each section -

Section
Expected Cut-Off (Marks)
Quantitative Aptitude
15
Reasoning
12
GK
18
Computer
20
English
10

So, if you are expecting that you will get marks more than mentioned in this table, we expect you to qualify the exam. SO, DONT WORRY AND DONT LOSE HOPE.

Also, these are the actual marks but when the IBPS result will be declared, they will provide standardize scores (and not the actual score) which is basically calculated keeping in mind the highest score, mean score, median score etc. So, obviously you Total Weighted Score (TWS) will be higher than what is mentioned above or you will calculate.

When will the result of this exam declared
Result of IBPS 2012 is expected to be declared by first week of Aug 2012.

When will the fresh vacancies come?
Banks keep on recruiting independently of IBPS Exam (as per their needs and requirements). So, vacancies can come any time now, the only requirement is - they ask for IBPS Score. This means, people having IBPS Score, can only apply. It has been observed that atleast 4-5 Banks should come out with vacancies just after declaration on the result of this IBPS Exam (Aug-Sept)

Which score will I use for applying to Bank Vacnacies, once this IBPS Score is declared?
You can chose, with which score you want to apply. Generally you will apply with the score which is higher of the two. Suppose, last year your score was 165 and this year it comes out to be 160, so ideally you should applying using your last years score as it will give you more chances of getting a call. As per IBPS Guidelines, your IBPS Exam score is valid for one year and during that one year you can applying in any Bank using that score (given you statisfy minimum illegibility criteria of the Bank).

What if I could not clear this Exam?
You can appear again for the IBPS PO Exam, which should be held in the start of next year 2013. There are not restrictions on number of attempts in IBPS.

If you have any other queries, please post here. We will try our best to answer you doubts and queries.

Anonymous said...

dear sir,

Pls clarify: "Around 92 % students found reasoning part to be very tough and around 80 % people maths to be tough."
If we add 92% + 80%, it exceeds 100%.

Thanks to kindly advise.

It is impossible for IBPS to check and publish results by first week of July. It will probably come by end August 2012 or Start/Mid of Sept 2012. You think guys roughly 14 lakh candidates have appeared.

IBPS PO/MT age Changed to 20-28 instead from 20-30yrs and educational - Graduate 60% instead from only Graduate.............

IMPORTANT........Please Pura Comment Padkar apni View dijiye....Ye Bahut galat decision ha.

Yes Friends,Govt ka yeh Decision bilkul galat ha...Age ekdam se change kar di,Eligibility bhi ekdam change kardi...This is not fair...JAB GOVT YE DECLARE KARTI HA K 1 CRORE JOBS DEGI OR EMPLOYMENT GENERATE KAREGI TAB TO YE DECISION IMMEDIATE EFFECT SE LAGU NAHI HOTA.Agar is tarah ka koi Decision lena ha to pahle 1 Yr ka kamse kam time dena chaiye k jo log us category me atey ha unhe atleast mauka mil sake..Yaha to un sab ka chance IMMEDIATE Effect se khatam ho gaya.........
Friends Fansi dene wala JALLAD bhi akhiri ichcha puchta ha Govt to Last chance bhi nahi dena chahti......Kya kehte ha aaplog...

IBPS ACTUALLY HAS CHEATED THE CANDIDATES BY AVOIDING CURRENT AFFAIRS QUESTIONS. IF THEY CHANGE THE QUESTION PATTERN IT WAS BETTER TO INFORM IT BEFORE EXAM REGARDING THE CORRECT SYLLABUS. WE HAVE WASTED LOTS OF OUR VALUABLE TIME BY COLLECTING CURRENT AFFAIR BITS.... PLEASE TRY TO AVOID IT IN FUTURE..........
