I gave my 3rd year exams before the lockdown but since many other exams didnt took place, the university has not yet released the results as of 5 Aug 20. So am i eligible to apply for ibps po which released on 4 Aug 20?
The official notification does mention that the Candidate should have a Degree in any discipline from a University recognised by the Government of India. It also mentions that the Candidate must possess valid marks sheet or Degree Certificate by the day he/she registers for the exam. The notification clearly mentions that the final results should hav been declared on or before August 26th, 2020. Because the last date for registration for IBPS 2020 is August 26th, you still have time. If by any chance the results are announced by August 26th, then you can apply for IBPS 2020 or else unfortunately you may be ineligible and might have to wait until next year to appear for the exam.
I will get my results on 15th September 2020. Can I still apply??
As per the official notification released by IBPS for recruitment of its probationary officers, "it states final year results of the candidates should be declared on or before 26th August,2020". So, if your results get declared in the month of September, you don't meet this criteria and cannot apply for the same. You can apply it next year, or more better if you fulfill the eligibility criteria of RBI Grade B Officer, apply for this one, it's a highly reputed post among all the banking exams, and it's notification isn't released yet, comparatively this is quite tough exam more so because of its second stage exam.
