What is the graduation percentage needed for taking admission?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 14th Feb, 2020

When it comes to IBPS Clerk, there's no specific aggregate required for graduation. One just needs to have passed graduation in any discipline from a recognized university

Apart from this, it's imperative to have proficiency in official language of the state or union territory for which one has applied.

Hello Arti,
At the time of filling your application for IBPS PO CLERK exam you are not asked to provide caste certificate.You have to enter primary details like your name, email id contact number etc and upload a scanned passport size photo and signature and a written declaration note.
But at the time of counselling you need to carry your caste certificate along with other required. SC/ST/OBC candidates must provide caste certificate issued by the competent authority in the prescribed format by Government of India.This is just enough.
I hope this is helpful to you.
