Dear Readers,

IBPS PO Previous Year Cut Off | IBPS PO Prelims and Mains Cut Off

Is your career goal to become a Banker? Then you should be familiar with the changes, twists, and turns in banking exams. The notification of IBPS PO 2017 Examination is already out and the registrations too have started. Students as far as the IBPS PO Prelims Examination cut off is concerned, it entirely depends on the number of vacancies declared and the complexity level of questions asked. The overall cut off for Prelims Examination of 2015 and 2016 were 37.25 and 47.50 respectively. As the difficulty level of every other examination has only been rising, there is no doubt that the level of IBPS Examination too has to rise. 

This year IBPS has introduced major changes in it Mains Exam Pattern- it has introduced differential marking and descriptive test of English Language making its pattern very similar to the pattern of SBI PO Mains exam. Candidates have to clear the sectional and overall cut off of IBPS PO Prelims Exam first to reach to the Mains Level. And from last one year we have observed a trend that the cut off of Preliminary exam is sky high, posing as a tough challenge for candidates.

Whether it is clerical cadre or officer level recruitment exam, now with changing dynamics of bank exams don’t be surprised if you find Prelims exam cut off very high and Mains cut off, on the contrary, very low.
