Apart from location, below are some other points as on which you should fill the Bank Preference Order in IBPS Exams 2022:


No. of Vacancies in the Bank: More the number of vacancies a bank has, more chances of selection you will have. Banks with a large number of vacancies have lower cut off marks. Hence, you should choose these at the top of your bank preference list.


Head Quarter of Bank: To choose the bank preferences based on the headquarter is another factor that matters the most. The banks have more branches in the state in which the headquarter of the bank is located. So, there will be more chances to get posted in that state.


Working Environment: Also, you can choose the Bank preference based on the work culture, transfer policy & promotion policy in the respective bank. Get to know all the details about the bank and fill the preference according to your priorities.
