For the IBPS SO Recruitment Process, the candidates need to understand the fact that out of 200 only 80 marks are allotted to Professional Knowledge and the other 3 sections need to be qualified. The overall cut-off will be decided by the number of candidates who qualify the exam with certain scores which are arrived by the equi-percentile method and the total number of vacancies.

  • Vikas Verma
    Sir, One more query. I have done B Tech. in Biotech. I was in doubt whether I am eligible or not for AFO becuase many websites were saying that B. Tech. Biotech can not apply for AFO. However, I was allowed for interview after document verification. Is there any chance for rejection from Bank after getting final allotment from IBPS?

    Hello Jon, Greetings from Eduncle! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us! All the subjects in IBPS SO apart from Professional Knowledge would be of qualifying marks. But these subjects need to be qualified along with the Professional Subject to get shortlisted for the next recruitment stage i.e. the Interview Round. IBPS will decide the qualifying marks for these sections on the number of candidates that took the test, the top scorers in each shift of the exam, the exam level difficulty during each of the exam shift and the number of vacancies. Hope this information clears your doubts. Kindly revert if you still have any confusions. Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
