Till 2011, IBPS used conducted independent and different exams for Clerical and Officer level jobs for different PSU Banks. In 2011, government decided to conduct one single exam for all PSU Banks. Hence, three Major Exams came into existence - IBPS PO (for Probationary Officer Jobs in PSU Banks), IBPS Clerk ( Clerical Jobs in PSU Banks) & IBPS SO (Specialist Officer Jobs in PSU Banks). IBPS RRB, combined exam for all Regional Rural Bank also followed in coming years. The first combined exam for PSU Banks was conducted in 2011 (called Common Written Examination - CWE).
