See this page in HINDI >>

Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has brought a major change in the IBPS Exam Pattern  to be held in the year 2015.

As per the details available at the IBPS official website, the exam conducting authority has decided to hold two-tier examinations (Preliminary and Mains) for recruitment of Probationary Officers (PO/MT) and Clerks from CWE-V onwards.

With the new Revised IBPS Exam Pattern, candidates will have to appear for the Common Written exam (CWE) and interview only once, to become eligible for jobs offered by 20 Public Sector Banks (PSBs)

Revised IBPS Exam Pattern / Exam Structure

Banking aspirants who successfully register themselves under CWE PO/MT-V and CWE CLERK-V will be called for Preliminary Examinations. After the Preliminary exam, some of the candidates will be shortlisted for Main Examination on the basis of performance in the preliminary examination.



Candidates, who will successfully clear the Main examination, will be eligible to appear for the interview session.

Preliminary Examination will be of shorter duration with less number of questions whereas the Main Examination will be the detailed one. The marks obtained in the Preliminary examination will not be considered for preparing the final merit list and the marks obtained in the Main Examination will only be considered for short listing for interview.

The registration process will be through online mode only and there will be a single registration for both Preliminary and Main examination.
