sir kya mai eligible hu sbi po k liya graduation m mera 51.7777% tha mai obc category se hu please reply sir because i am very confused.

Apoorva Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

All those students are eligible who have qualified their graduation from a recognised university or by any Central university to meet the eligibility criteria for SBI po exam . There is no minimum marks required to be eligible for the exam it's just that you should have qualified your graduation. While as you said you are an OBC candidate then you are allowed to give exam for 7 times. While there is a eligibility criteria for age that is lower age limit is 21 while upper age limit is 30 if you want to appear in the exam . I hope this was helpful

Best wishes

if we preparing sbi po clerk exam from past 1 year can we crack in first attempt or not?

Bhaskar Nakkina Student Expert 21st Nov, 2019

Hii ,

Cracking Any exam in the first attempt purely depends on one's Capability and his knowledge.  As far as I know SBI PO clerk exam Questions are of easy to Moderate level. But the one who can get the Correct Answer in less time wins. The exam is of 60 Mins Duration comprising of 100 Questions. So It is difficult to crack At one time. But can do it in 2 to 3 attempts. If you feel that i have knowledge and time management skill you can clear that.


if my main focus is on competitive exams like SBI PO, RRB and civil services. Is it ok choice to choose BCA as my graduation degree??

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019


The three exams that you've mentioned have different exam pattern, but the eligibility criteria is common that is graduation in any discipline from a recognized university(I'm also referring this for RRB Graduate level exams).

People from different background have cracked the above mentioned exams as they have put efforts, so you can also crack any of these exams with BCA degree. During your graduation time period itself, you can go through the syllabus of these exams and start with the subjects involved, with little steps you'll be definitely able to succeed. Going through syllabus, previous year questions, doing mock test regularly and most importantly practice, revision are extremely important in cracking any government exams

Now, coming to your question, if you are particularly interested in cracking one exam among the three, then I'll suggest from the onset, you go with that. As I mentioned, these exams have different pattern, so preparing for all three at one time will become highly difficult for you.


Hello, My birth date is 25 April 1990 (General category) so will I be eligible to give sbi po 2020 as I have seen in ibps website that the age limit should not be more than 30 yrs as on 1st June 2020?

For SBI, the Basic  age eligibility criteria is the candidate must be minimum 21 years of age and maximum age is 30 years of age. And also the candidate must have passed graduation from a recognised Board of University with minimum 50% marks. As your DOB is 2000 , you are not eligible to apply for the exam.
