IBPS Selection Process

The Institute for Banking Personnel Selection or IBPS has a selection process for different posts like IBPS PO, IBPS SO and IBPS Clerk. This selection process is somewhat similar with slight differences depending on the post.

Once the candidates have cleared the bank exams, this selection process is the final process through which they are selected for various positions. Through this article we will have a look at the IBPS selection process for different IBPS exams.

Selection Process for different IBPS Posts

The IBPS selection process is a little different for different posts like IBPS PO, IBPS SO and IBPS clerk. Here, we will have a look at the selection process of all these posts.

Selection process for IBPS PO

The selection process for IBPS PO is as follows:

  • The candidate needs to clear both the preliminary examination and mains examination of the IBPS PO exam.
  • After clearing the written exam, the candidates need to successfully complete the interview process to go ahead in the selection procedure.
  • Once the interview is cleared, the candidate may get a job offer as an IBPS PO in any public sector bank.
  • During the hiring process, verification of all the documents is done after which the candidate is officially hired.

It is important to note that sectional cut-offs and final marks play an important role in clearing the common written examination for IBPS PO. Similarly, clearing the mains phase of the IBPS PO exam is necessary to reach the interview phase.

Selection Process for IBPS Clerk

The selection process for the IBPS Clerk is fairly similar to that of the IBPS PO, wherein the candidate needs to clear the common written examinations including the preliminary and mains phase of the IBPS Clerk exam. After clearing these, the interview process will be carried to hire the deserving candidates.

In the IBPS clerk selection process, a provisional allotment happens after the mains phase of the IBPS clerk exam is cleared. This allotment is based on—state wise vacancies for IBPS clerks, business needs of participating organisations, and merit preferences along with reservation policies of the government.

The last step in the selection process for IBPS clerks is the document verification which involves the hardcopy of the IBPS clerk application form and other necessary documents like mark sheets, birth certificate, caste certificate, disability certificate (if applicable) and photo identity of the candidate.

Selection Process for IBPS SO

The selection process for IBPS SO differs slightly for different posts of specialist officers. During this selection process, special attention is given to the area of expertise of the candidate. IBPS SO again involves a provisional allotment process which takes place after the interview is cleared.

Through the provisional allotment process, candidates are allotted posts in different financial institutions. The candidates who meet the criteria of participating banks are also eligible for provisional allotment.

The last step in the selection process of IBPS SO is similar to that of IBPS PO and IBPS clerk. This involves document verification, after which the candidate is recruited on the given post.

The above selection process is what the IBPS has been conducting in recent years. However, the IBPS can change the selection process and exam pattern any time. Hence, the candidates aspiring to appear for these exams should always stay updated about the exam pattern and the selection process.
