IBPS SO Cut off 2018
Bachan Thakur, 27 Jul 2018, #IBPS SO

IBPS SO Cut off 2018 – IBPS will release IBPS SO 2018 cut off along with its result declaration of the different stages of the exam. The cut off of IBPS SO 2018 will be released separately for the three stages of the exams – prelims, mains and the interview. IBPS SO cut off of mains is determined by the exam conducting authority to shortlist candidates over 3 times the number of vacancies for the next stage – interview of the exam.

 

IBPS SO cutoff 2018 is the barometer to filter the deserving candidates to enter the next level of the recruitment exam. It must be noted that the call letters will be issued to only those candidates (for appearing in the next level of the exam) who secure the cut off of IBPS SO 2018 in the preceding exam stage. Thus, by checking IBPS SO previous years cut off gives an idea to the aspiring candidates about how much they need to score in the exam.

 

Marks secured by the candidates in IBPS SO prelims will determine their candidature for taking the mains exam, while the marks secured in mains will determine whether they will appear in the interview. Marks obtained by the candidates in the mains exam and the interview are normalised to 100. Therafter, the allotment of the banks to the candidates will be strictly based on the candidates normalised score in the exam and their preferences.

 

How to calculate IBPS SO Cut off 2018

While calculating the IBPS SO cutoff, Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) adopts the below given process.

Scores: The corrected scores secured by the candidates in different sessions (if held) are normalised with the use of equipercentile method. It must be noted that scores up to two decimal points are taken for the purpose of calculation.

A total of 100 marks are allotted for the interview. Candidates have to secure the minimum qualifying marks in the interview are 40% for unreserved or General Category, while the minimum qualifying marks for SC/ST/OBC/PWD candidates are 35%. The combined final score of the candidates are calculated by giving 80% weightage to the online mains exam marks and 20% weightage to the marks scored in the interview. Candidates have to qualify in both the IBPS SO 2018 online mains exam and interview and be sufficiently high in the merit to be shortlisted for subsequent allotment process.

 

Cut off Score: Each candidate will be required to secure the minimum score in each test and also a minimum total score, as explained below. Only then the candidates will be considered for shortlisting for interview. Depending on the number of vacancies, IBPS SO cut off will be decided and candidates will be shortlisted for interview. Before the completion of the interview procedure, scores secured in the online exam will not be shared with the candidates shortlisted for interview.

  • Means – 3/4th of standard deviation for SC/ST/OBC/PWD categories

  • Mean – 1/4th of standard deviation for General Category

  • There will be a second level cut off point on total as per requirement
