      Hello Oviya,

      Greetings from Eduncle!

      Thanks for sharing your query with us!

      There is no overall cutoff in IBPS SO Exam. As you have achieved 18 Marks in the Professional Knowledge Section, if you have achieved the required cut-off to clear the section, then only you would be shortlisted for the Interview round.

      It was clearly stated in the Official Notification for IBPS SO CWE VI that only the marks obtained in the Professional Knowledge section will be considered for shortlisting the candidates for the Interview round, the other sections are of qualifying nature.

      All the Best for your Results!

      Kind Regards,
