A Guide on How To Fill IBPS PO 2018 Online Application Form

Dear Aspirants,


IBPS has activated the Online Registration and Application Form filling Link for PO 2018 Recruitment. No matter how simple it may seem, that an aspirant is just required to fill in his/her details in the application form, but you need to be really careful with smallest of details. Every year we receive many emails of students and aspirant who end up making some mistakes while filling the form and then have to figure out ways to get an affidavit for corrections. Thus, bankersadda.com brings to you a basic guide on how you should fill in the form and on what details you should be really careful.

First and Foremost thing: Please Note Down and save your Registration Number and Password positively once you register yourself on the portal for this recruitment. Make sure you have a screenshot of email or you click a photograph or by any means simply just ensure that you DO NOT LOSE THE Registration Number and Password.

1. Your name, fathers' name mothers name DOB and such details should be the same as that in your 10th, 12th, graduation mark sheets and degrees. 

2. Your name and other details should also match with your ID proof- Adhar Card, Voter ID, Passport etc. You'll be required to take any valid ID proof with you while appearing for the examinations.

3. Please be careful while filling in your percentage and year of passing. These details should match with whats on your mark sheets and degree. 

4.  The percentage marks shall be arrived at by dividing the total marks obtained by the candidate in all the subjects in all semester(s)/year(s) by aggregate maximum marks (in all the subjects irrespective of honours / optional / additional optional subject, if any) and multiplying by 100. This will be applicable for those Universities also where Class / Grade is decided on basis of Honours marks only. The fraction of percentage so arrived will be ignored i.e. 59.99% will be treated as less than 60% and 54.99% will be treated as less than 55%.

5. Please be very careful while selecting your CATEGORY!! No correction can be done later if you complete the application filling process selecting the wrong category.

6. This year in Application form there is a new addition of "UPLOADS" field, you'll have to upload an image of your thumb impression and a handwritten declaration.
