    Hello Ashish, Greetings from Eduncle! The CRP for IBPS SO VI will be administering a change in the paper pattern wherein the exam sections other than the Professional Language section, can be cleared by scoring qualifying marks. Kindly go through this detailed explanation as stated in the official notification: "Each candidate will be required to obtain a minimum score in each test and also a minimum total score to be considered to be shortlisted for interview. Depending on the number of vacancies available, cut-offs will be decided and candidates will be shortlisted for interview. Prior to the completion of the interview process, scores obtained in the online examination will not be shared with the candidates shortlisted for interview." Good Luck! Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
    Hii I want to know this year SO AFO agriculture cutoff marks out of 80 in exam which will surely confirms selection if interview will be on an average and also the no.of questions must be right for qualifying in English as there is no marks (hence I called it no.of questions) kindly provide me this info specially in consideration of my SC category it will be most helpful for me. Thanks
    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    HellO Satish, Greetings from Eduncle! As the IBPS SO Exam 2017 is yet to be conducted based upon the paper pattern, stating the actual cutoffs for Professional Knowledge subjects would be impossible. Eduncle experts predict the cutoffs that could be there. A deviation of +/- 5 can be there. Here are the expected cut offs category wise - SC - 40, ST - 35.20, OBC - 42, UR - 55.50., HI - 38.25, OC - 25.50, VI - 48 Regarding the number of attempts for the English Language, it would be wise if you would attempt 28-30 questions keeping in view the negative marking. No set number of questions can be defined that can take you to the next stage. Interview stage too holds it's worth. But currently, focus on the Online Exam. The sections that need to be qualified should not be ignored. Hope this information clear your doubts. Still, if you have any queries, kindly share with us! All the Best! Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
    Sir actually I want to know the no. Of questions in english and reasng n quant to shortlist for interview with obviously professonal knowledge plz privide me my answer for Agri officer 2017 sc cateory.
    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    Hello Satish, Greetings from Eduncle! There are no fixed number of question attempts that can make you qualify for the Interview round. Be it any category candidate, the shortlisting for teh next stage of recruitment depends upon the final cutoffs. You not only have to attempt questions but maintain speed and accuracy both.Focus on both and mark the responses correctly as negative marking of .25 marks is also there. Out of 50 Questions in each of the sections, you can aim at attempting 30-35 questions correctly. Hope this information helps! Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    Hello Gopu, Greetings from Eduncle! As per the new Exam Pattern followed for IBPS SO Exam 2017, the cutoffs will be out of 80 Marks and not 200 Marks. Kind Regards, Eduncle Questions

    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    Hello Aravind, Greetings from Eduncle! As the IBPS SO Exam 2017 has witnessed few important changes with regards to the Paper Pattern, English Language, Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, and General Awareness Sections are not allotted any fixed Maximum Marks. Although these sections have equal weight age as the Professional Knowledge section. These sections too need to be focused with utmost dedication. These sections need to be qualified with certain qualifying marks which will be decided after the exam is conducted. All the Best for the Exam! Kind Regards, Eduncle Team

    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    Hello Archita, Greetings from Eduncle! Thanks for the appreciation. We value your feedback. Archita, IBPS SO is a test to calculate speed and accuracy of the candidates under a certain time limit. You should follow the wise approach of carefully examining the questions and answering them. In the case of even the slightest of doubt, kindly avoid answering as there is .25 marks penalty for each wrong answer. For the questions, you leave unanswered there would be no penalty. With almost 1 month time remaining, brush up the main topics, revise the formulas and stay updated with the latest current affairs. All the Best! Eduncle Team

    Thank you Eduncle for reply, coming to my interview experience, panel consisted 5 members including 1 lady (sat at end only). after formal wishes, they asked "tell us about your self" (my strong point is my professional experience, so i covered major part of it). then the below questions came what kind of documents require for applying VAT registration, how do you file VAT returns & what is the minimum period to submit without penalty, like what kind of taxes comes under indirect tax and direct tax, what kind of support available from govt when starting new business, what is money market and capital market, what is sebi, explain mudra schemes. what is fundamental concept of marketing and how it evolved. answered all questions except for mudra scheme sequence which i forgot (sishu, kishore, tarun) and said them that im not able recollect sequencial order. they are satisfied for all the answers except for SEBI question which they felt ok for it. what i believe is they are at least not dissatisfied with my performance. (we never know their real satisfaction levels)

    Eduncle team, Thanks for the update, I have a doubt this year IBPS mentioned as total score *1.6 which is coming 46 for me and that will be out of 80 . So I need to consider weight age marks for selection . And could you please tell me what will be the safe marks in interview to get provisional allotment , I know that this is tough for your team, but as per analysis you can share a possible picture . Thanks in advance . Deepti
    Eduncle Team @Eduncle
    Hello Deepti, Greetings from Eduncle! Thanks for sharing your query with us! As you have scored 28.75/50, so your marks are multiplied by 1.6 and you will get 46/80. Therefore, at least 15 marks more should be scored by you in the interview round, to be in a safe position. All the Best! Do share your interview experience with us! Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
