IBPS came into existence in 1984, when the Personnel Staff Selection (PSS) Unit of NIBM was converted into autonomous Institute of Banking Personnel Selection.

IBPS Combined Written Exams (IBPS CWE)

Till 2011, IBPS used conducted independent and different exams for Clerical and Officer level jobs for different PSU Banks. In 2011, the 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, the 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).

Keeping in mind its hiring needs and long term vision, the largest PSU Bank of India – State Bank of India (SBI) did not participate in combined exams conducted by IBPS. Hence, every year IBPS conducts the separate exam for SBI (PO, Clerical & Specialist Officer).
