  5. 138 attempts

  7. attempts 150- Rea-49(all correct), Aptitute-22(all correct),Eng-32(5-7 may be wrong),GA-47(5-8 may be wrong) from tamil nadu(GENERAL).What are my chances..

          • But sbi has not announced that till now. Govt said that there wont be interview from January 01 and ibps clerk also cancelled the interview but still sbi talks about interview in their notification itself.
            Will main exam be the final process for selection ??

          • Yes u r right SBI talks about interview in their notification but subject to the approval of govt of India , so mostly interview won’t be there in SBI clerk , main exam will be the final process for sue

          • For main exam 1:20 ratio candidates are shortlisted from prlms and you are saying that this main exam will be final selection process. So sbi has to shortlist only one member out of 20 for each vacancy. If cut off is that much low means a candidate who got lowest mark in prelms (ie 22/100) can get 50/200 in main so all the candiates will be above 50 marks. How could sbi shorlist.
            Your prediction is wrong.

          • Well said Mr Rajaram, just tell me one thing how do u come to know that SBI has shortlisted 1:20 from prelims to mains, how r u expect SBI to shortlist 1 out of 20 for each vaccany from mains, do u have precise data like how many candidates appeared for prelims , how many of them are attend the mains by clearing prelims

          • Yes I’m having data that sbi shortlisted 1:20 ratio for mains. No matter how many candidates wrote prelims but in mains it matters. If you want to see the data I’m having, then just download the official notification and read it carefully.

          • Yes I’m having data that sbi shortlisted 1:20 ratio for mains. No matter how many candidates wrote prelims but in mains it matters. If you want to see the data I’m having, then just download the official notification and read it carefully.

        • Yes of course this is not a normal clerk exam , but in prelims 21 is cut off for SBI clerk , I won’t be surprised if cut off goes down as b/w 40-50

  8. i am from obc category,odisha ,i hv attempted ga-44(4-Wrong),eng-30,reas-26,quant-30.
    what are the chances of getting selected for interview,if it to be held.if it’s not to be held
    what are the chances,pl provide me chances in %.
    thanking you….

  9. Sir i have attempted 145 que n am expecting 130-135. GA-44(80% accuracy),Quant-26,reasoning-35,english-40..and iam from andhra pradesh OBC. Are there ang chances of getting selected even without interview(if not conducted)?

  10. i have attempt only GK-34 (16 review) E-38 (2 review) Q-12 R-12 total 96 with 80% from Tamilnadu OBC
    i spent more time in puzzle and bar chart if any possibility

  11. Bad prediction. I got 75.75 in prelims, but my mains went just good. I attempted 132.
    I have done guess work in GA section. But I am pretty confident of other sections.
    I think that cutoff would be between 100-110 for Gen in UP. Or more between 105-110.

    • if there is interview you will surely get interview call … no interview and all will depend on your accuracy …

    • Me too 80 in preliminary but main paper was good not an ordinary clerk paper so I think cut off will be around 115 -125 for General category

  12. Previously for ibps clerks we had a computer section which consists of 40 questions bt in sbi clerk we dont hv diz section..Nd it’s very difficult Nd lengthy too..den hw can you expect 140 cutoff

      • but the paper was tough was like PO( I attended PO bfr ) .. in the given time attpting 35 in reasoning and 30 in quants is a big deal ..

      • One factor you are forgetting is the number of vacancies. Plus we had 90 min for 100 questions of Reasoning and Quant. 60-70 questions in 90 min is a pretty good attempt. And I am talking of genuine attempts.

  13. sir, I have attempted 143 and i hope i am getting 125 to 130 and iam obc from Andhra Pradesh reasoning -48,arthmetic-25-30,English 25-30,ga-41 is there any chances for me

  14. Sir/Mam , i attempted 139 and after analysis i found that iam getting around 125 marks…iam in general category from UP…..plz tell what are my chances.

  15. From wb obc done ga(31-4went wrong),english(31-80%-85%accuracyminimum),reasoning(37-100%accuracy),quant(34-100%accuracy),is there any hope for me?

    Eng-29(90% accuracy)
    ,Reasoning-40,(1-2 wrong)
    maths-26(1-2 wrong)
    I m from general category.state mp.any chances

  18. 145-155 not possible specialy frst day candidate does’nt hv idea abt this level nd every sites is lso not able to go on sbi clerk level ga was not easy nd reasoning was po level…. it would not go above 125 for gen….

    • Yes, i agree with you. According to me also it wont go beyond 125.Attempt is not the factor what matter is accuracy. Its sbi there always a Twist. Lots of people attempted 40+ in GA. But i dont think so they did with 100%… wasn’t easy question at all. And quant we know it…..and then comes to reasoning out of 4 puzzle 2 are kickass. And coding and decoding with binary questions, i didnt even read it, seems too long??. I dont know about otherS.

          • if the speed of down stream is equal to 2 times that of upward stream then find the ratio b/n still water and boat speed in still water.

            Ans let upstream u-v=x
            then U+v=2x
            formula for still water is 1/2(x+2x)=3x/2
            formula for boat is 1/2(2x-x)=x/2
            now ratio is 3:1
