When someone thinks about doing P.O. then designations such as Deputy manager, manager will come into his mind. But, let me clear that P.O. is not restricted to only such posts since after working for some years and after getting promotions, they have opportunities to reach at the post of Bank GM or Chairman.
So, if you are aiming for P.O. then comprehend these points –
- AGE CRITERIA –
|Ex- servicemen who have rendered atleast 5 years military service or persons ordinarily domiciled in the state of Jammu and Kashmir during the period of 01.01.1980 to 31.12.1989||20-35 years|
|Persons with disabilities||20-40 years|
2. EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS –
A Degree (Graduation) in any discipline from a University recognised by the Govt. of India or any equivalent qualification recognised as such by the Central Government.
The best part is that there is no such minimum marks criteria for appearing in Bank P.O. examination.
3. PATTERN OF EXAMINATION –
It is an online exam which is known as Common Written Examination and conducted in three parts, namely :
- Preliminary Examination – It’s a 1hour exam having English language, Quantative Aptitude and Reasoning Ability. It is just a qualifying exam since its marks are not added in mains.
- Main Examination – Basically, it consists of four papers of three hours and a thirty minutes exam of English Language.
- Students who qualify mains exam are asked for an interview. On the basis of interview and mains marks, it is decided that whether you are selected for Bank P.O. or not.
4. ATTEMPTS –
There is no such limitations on the number of attempts until you fulfill the age criteria. Moreover, chances of selection in IBPS PO is just 0.2% approximately.
5. PREPARATION STRATEGY –
It is to note that for mains exam you will not get sufficient time, since only one week after the pre examination you have to appear in mains. So, you need to prepare for it well in advance. Moreover, the syllabus of pre and mains is almost same. In pre exam, questions from easy to moderate level are asked while in mains exam moderate to high level questions are enquired.
So guys, consider all these points and make a wonderful strategy to succeed in this exam.
