SBI PO Selection Procedure: Important Points
The candidates should keep in mind the following points related to the SBI PO selection process:
• Biometric Verification: To ensure an error-free and secure selection procedure for SBI PO 2020, the bank may digitally capture the thumb impression of the candidate. This is done to verify the genuineness of the candidates. Any inconsistency in the biometric verification will lead to rejection of the candidature and punitive legal actions. Candidates are thus advised not to apply any kind of external matter like ink, mehandi, chemical etc. on their hands.
• Number of Attempts: The maximum number of chances are fixed for each category. Candidates who have used up all the chances are not eligible to apply. Appearing in Preliminary Exam is not counted as an attempt but appearing in Mains Exam is counted.

hello! i have filled the form of ssc in 2018 nd i filled my father name as per adhaar card but later i saw it should by filled as same as matriculation. now, i have an exam of SSC CPO 2019. is there any difficulty or problem at the time of document verification? pls help...
At the time of document verification , you may explain to them what actually happened. The reason for name difference in Aadhar and Matriculation. If you are able to provide right reason and convince them , I think this issue will not be a problem . Pls justify yourself with reasonable clarifications, and you may say that if needed you can provide them gazetted officer authorization letter proving both the names are of same person some . Definitely they will accept it and allow you for next levels. If any doubts, pls feel free to ask .
Wish You Good Luck !
Thank You !!
i got 42% marks in my graduation. which types of exam i am eligible with graduation degree. And please suggest me where i need to move banking or ssc?
With your graduation degree, you're eligible for not only banking and ssc cgl, but even upsc cse, since all these don't ask for any specific aggregate.
Now, coming to which exam, that entirely depends on you, SSC and Banking, both are quite different. SSC conducts its recruitment in four stages, and it does take a larger amount of time compared to bank exam results. Moreover, the pattern too is different, yes there're similarities in terms of few subject, but in SSC there's always a possibility of repeating of previous year questions, hence solving pyq in ssc becomes handy, while banking exam is all about speed and precision.
