Are Final Year Students Eligible For IBPS Clerk 2020 Recruitment?

This is a bit tricky question because of the current situation as everything has come to an halt and Universities postponing the exams etc but the solution is that if you are certain that your result will be announced on or before 23rd September 2020, fill the form. You cannot fill the form if you are result will be declared after 23rd September 2020. One of the reason is that there is a specified column to enter your graduation marks upto two decimals so you cannot fill the marks on the basis of your assumption that you will end up scoring so and so percentage because it will be very difficult for you to pass the Document Verification round. You may be disqualified or in the worst case could be exempted from next attempt. Second Scenario is that you are just entered in your final year or you are in the last semester of the final year etc. in both the cases you are not eligible to fill the form. Going through official notification is suggested before filling up the form to avoid any confusion.
