hello sir my date of birth is 21 march 1990, i belong to OBC category so , am i eligible for ibps clerk 2021 exam or not????
The upper age limit to appear for IBPS Clerk 2021 is 28 years as on July 1, 2021. Candidates belonging to OBC-NCL category are given 3 years age relaxation on upper age limit. Your age as on July 1, 2021 is 31 years 3 months 11 days. But only 3 years relaxation is given on upper age limit so if your age is below 31 years you are eligible. You are not eligible to appear for IBPS Clerk 2021 as your age is above 31 years.
Hello Sir, my birthdate is 18 Dec 1993, so would I be eligible for SBI and IBPS Clerk exams 2022 ? ?
Age limit for clerical position for both SBI and IBPS is 28 years. Since you were born in 1993 in the month of December, you will be 28 years + (some months) old in 2022 (April) and therefore you are not eligible for either of SBI or IBPS Clerk.
However, you can still try for the PO positions in both SBI and IBPS as the age limit for PO is 30 years.
Hope this was helpful.
