The link to register for IBPS SO Recruitment 2018 has already been activated. Some have already applied for the post while others, who are yet to apply, don't exactly know how to fill up the form. Students, if you are puzzling over how to fill in the details, stick around, we will discuss it step by step in this our video. Every time when a notification is out, we are loaded with emails seeking help regarding the mistakes made during filling up the online application forms. So, to make sure that you do not end up making those mistakes, Bankersadda is here with the fine points. Get down to the nitty-gritty and only then head towards filling up your IBPS SO 2018 Application Form.


1. Your name, father's name, mother's name, DOB and other such crucial details should be same as mentioned in your high school mark sheet.

2. Not just that but your details should also match the ones on your Adhar Card, Voter ID Card, Passport, etc.

3. Double check your percentage and year of passing. They should be exactly the same as that mentioned on your mark sheets of 10th, 12th and graduation.

4.  The percentage 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 honors / 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. Walk a tightrope while filling up your category (General/SC/ST and others ) because you can not change the category you belong to after completion of the application process.

6. After filling up the details, the next step is to upload an image of your thumb impression and a handwritten declaration.
