But that’s not all. The main point is that you need to clear sectional cut off of IBPS PO , in additional to overall cutoff of IBPS PO as well which is generally around 12-15 marks for each section.In Order to reach the cut-off marks specified above, you need to

  • Attempt at least 65-70 percent questions in IBPS PO to clear the overall cutoff.
  • A minimum of 40% question in each section of IBPS PO to clear the sectional cutoff

Is Scoring Cut Off marks enough in IBPS PO Exam??

In very simple language NO. The reason is that IBPS calls 2.5-3 times the aspirants for GD and interview. It means more than half of the aspirants who got interview call will ultimately not be able to make it to the final merit. Generally these are those candidates who cleared cutoff on ,margin (Though there are some exceptions too.)

What to Do Then to clear IBPS PO Cutoff?

Again in simple words, try to score at least 20 marks more than the expected cutoff. It means even if your interviews and GD goes out to be average, you still will be having high chances to make it into the merit list and land your dream job.

What Not to Do to clear IBPS PO Cutoff??

Once again in simple words, Do not waste your time making Permutation and Combinations. Instead prepare harder and thus score more. Even the previous year cutoffs are to give an idea . Do not plan your number of questions to be attempted based on the cutoff, There is a high chance (Ok let us say 100 % chance that this year cutoff will be more than previous years cutoff)

  8. Well that’s ur supposed cutoff?
    Last yr cut off for english was 6 and the section was easy. Overall exam level was also easy last year. So how come english as well as overall cutoff are expected to go up by 2-3 marks and 8-13 marks respectively.
    Get ur facts right or don’t post random things misguiding candidates.

    • Then according to you what should be the cut off for this year????
      as i attempted 51 questions
      english 22
      maths 15
      reasoning 14
      shall I prepare for mains??? i belongs to general category

    • It’s a prediction which has been done taken into account 2 factors –
      First -> The number of candidates has increased this year.
      Second -> The predicted number here is such because there should always be a scope of ‘a +/- 5 mark’ error.

      Also, I’d like to clarify that we at Mockbank don’t misguide. Your interests matter to us. Kindly understand that this is the ‘expected’ cutoff as per our standards (after a thorough analysis of this year’s exam, we’ve rectified it the number. However as per us, it will not go below 40 for GEN category). The final decision will obviously be IBPS’s. One thing will be certain though, an aspirant with an excellent preparation will make it while the rest won’t.

      We wish you our very best.

  9. Hi guys , done my exam as I attempt 49 only with individual sectional of English 17 reasoning 13 quant 19 and I am sc category .Can I clear Prelims exam..

  10. 1. There is no Computer paper mentioned in the Final Exam
    2. GD is only for SBI Exams and not for IBPS Exam.

    Please dont misguide the Aspirants. They are already frustrated.

  11. in ibps po prelims 2015 eng sectional cut off for general was only 7 and this time for 2016 you are saying 8 which is not possible because eng paper was tough change to 5/6
