Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 27th Oct, 2019

For you to be eligible for a Bank PO entrance examination, you need to be a Graduate in any discipline. Aggregate really doesn't matter. So even if you have secured 48%, you are eligible for Bank PO exams. For example SBI PO exam eligibility is that you should have completed your Graduation in any discipline. Aggregate doesn't matter.
