Hello Aspirants,


IBPS PO | Cut-Off Analysis 2015 to 2017

The wait is over and all our queries regarding the IBPS PO Cut-off have been answered below. IBPS is one of the most wonderful recruitment organization who has always been punctual with the recruitment formalities. Unlike SSC and other Govt Exams, IBPS has always released the up to date information on their website. Although due to some of the administrative decision, it has delayed the result but now everything is in front of us. The performance of the students can be seen and the cut off reveals the statistics.

Bankersadda in association with Adda247 has provided you with the cut-offs for all the previous years. This will help you understand the trajectory followed by IBPS and will help you judge the cut-off for the year 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18. Let’s have a look at the IBPS Mains cut-off first.

These were the cut-offs for the Mains examinations of last four years. If you analyse them carefully, you notice that there are a lot of variations in the cut-offs each year. These variations are due to the changes in exam patterns, the level of difficulty of exams and most importantly, the number of vacancies in each year. All these factors are responsible for variations in the cut-offs every year.

Now, after the Mains cut-offs, let’s have a look at the overall cut-offs (out of 100) of combined exam and interview of the following years which decides the final Result for the Recruitment.
