IBPS RECRUITMENT 2017 PROCEDURE
IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) is an autonomous body set up to recruit candidates for various client organizations, conduct relevant supportive research and publicize the findings. It has been rendering assistance to the financial sector in the fields of employee selection, promotion and placement.
IBPS recruitment procedure consists of two stages – First is the Common Written Exam (CWE) & second is the Common Interview exam. The score card is generated on the basis of your performance in both the exams. On the basis of the score card the participants will be selected for the participating organization.
1. COMMON WRITTEN EXAMINATION – IBPS Common Written Exam (IBPS CWE) is an objective type question paper which will be conducted online. The exam is for 200 marks and has to be completed in a time frame of 2 hours. There will be negative marking with 0.25 marks being deducted for every wrong answer.
2. COMMON INTERVIEW – The candidates shortlisted in the CWE will be called for the next stage of the IBPS 2017 Recruitment procedure i.e, common interview. Interviews will be conducted at selected centres. The total marks allotted for Interview are 100. The minimum qualifying marks in interview will not be less than 40%. The distribution of the entire IBPS recruitment procedure 2017 is 80 (CWE) : 20 (CI).
This year the IBPS Recruitment 2017 pattern for Probationary Officers (IBPS PO/MT) and Clerk Posts has been slightly altered. The Common Written Examination has been changed to Two Tier Written Examinations. IBPS PO and IBPS Clerk exam will be conducted at two levels – TIER I (preliminary) and TIER II (mains).
So, changes in the pattern will have following implications:
- Exam will be conducted in two Tiers, this will ensure that there is no randomness in the selection process (person has to qualify on both the stages to reach interview stage).
- Tier I will be a easier exam and more number of candidates will be qualified in this stage. Difficulty level in tier II will be high. So, by including both kind of papers, it will be ensured that the candidates, who can handle both kinds of situations are qualified.
- Tier II exam will include bio-metric identification i.e. at the time of entering the exam hall, you will be required to undergo bio-metric identification – scanning of your thumb impression etc. Same scanning will happen at the time of interview stage and at the time of joining the bank.
- Tier I exams will be of qualifying nature and its score will not be added while preparing for final merit list. Only Tier II marks and Interview score will be considered for the preparation of final merit list.
On completion of the interview process, depending on the vacancies to be filled, according to the business needs of the Participating Organisations and as reported to IBPS, candidates shortlisted will be provisionally allotted to one of the Participating Organisations, based on merit-cum-preference, keeping in view the spirit of Govt. Guidelines on reservation policy, various guidelines issued by Govt. of India/ Others from time to time, administrative exigency, etc.
In the event of two or more candidates having obtained the same score, merit order is decided as per date of birth (the candidate senior in age is placed before/ above the candidate junior in age), as per the prevailing practice.
