Queries related to IBPS PO Interviews

Today I received an email from one of my regular reader Ram. Ram has been shortlisted for IBPS PO 2013, he asked some queries. 

I am R@@M from Bangalore, I have been Shortlisted for IBPS PO Interview,I have some query's Related to Interview, I would be grateful if you could read it and provide some suggestions at your earliest convenience.

Here is the list of queries that he sent me. In case you have any query, please comment in the comment box, please don't use abusive language, as comments with abusive language got filtered automatically.

Queries

Is state really matters while preparing Final results in PO (Because It matters in clerical)??? Karnataka Min score:47

Simple answer to this question is - No. State doesn't  matter. Yes it matters in clerk exams because of low salary so local candidates are preferred.

I have completed B.E in CSE so is there any risk of getting less marks? because of Non commerce Branch

As it is an interview for PO post, all interviewers are bankers and they are going to ask questions about banking only. So if you don't know much about banking then it can effect final score. I recommend you to buy Barons of banking and Economics by , this will help you build strong basics. You can complete these books within 2 weeks.

What is the correct answer for, Do you want to apply for Specialist officer-2014 ? If get selected then??

Pay scale of both IT officers scale I and PO is same, so why you want you shift ? In case they ask, then your answer should be NO. Explain them pay scale fact, I am sure they won't ask any other question.

Best answer for Why Banking???and Why Public Sector ??

Banking sector is growing day by day and I want to grow with it. Public sector banks offers stability and growth prospects in my career.

How many vacancies are there in IBPS PO-2013? how many cleared ? what would be the ratio for Interview ?????

I got lot of negative responses for answering this question in past. As per me 57000 candidates are shortlisted, normally 15-20% of the candidates don't appear for interviews. At least 10% candidates fails in interviews. So out of 45000 there will be 21,000-23000 jobs. I can say that ratio will be 1:2. Job is secured for those who scored 160+ in test.

I lost my admit card. What should I do now?

Don't worry, admit card link will be live one week before interview dates.

I filled wrong date of completion of degree. What should I do now?

You can edit your details at the time of interview.

My college is not giving my degree ? What should I do now? 

Make an affidavit that you passed all the examinations to pass the graduation degree but still your college didn't gave you graduation degree.

    1. sir i think safe score will be 125+ out of 200,because wtge of written marks is 80% so if a candidate get 125 twss then it is aroud 50 out of 100( which is twss+interview) and if a candidate gets avg marks in interview ie. 50% then the composite score will be around 60 which will be safe score keeping in view the last yr final marks..

      Delete
    2. Dear Oriel,
      125 marks out of 200 in TWSS is 50 on 80 and for interview if one gets 10 on 20 then total 50+10 is 60 on 100 and that candidate is very much in and hence you are absolutely correct

      Delete
    3. it was TWSS of 160 out of 250.
      Cutoff is less than 80 for general category candidates. I have seen many readers saying in comments that they attempted 90 questions and they are shortlisted.

  2. " So you are from science background and received such good marks then why don't you continue to your own stream instead of joining bank."

    1. Dear Bidyut,
      What Ramandeep Singh Sir told is 125 on 200 is TWSS score friend not the actual score,read the blogs carefully,the score card that IBPS is going to issue is not the actual score but the marks converted through TWSS formula...........regards

    Can you clarify the following questions regarding PO interview?
    1. Currently I am in IT industry with 4 years of experience. If they ask why not you try for IBPS specialist officer scale II means.... how can I answer it?

    2. I know only my mother Tongue (Tamil) and English. I don't know Hindi... Will it be any issue for PO posting?

    3. I am from electronics and communication background, is it necessary to revise my electronics papers as well to clear the interview?

    Kindly let us know what are the stuffs we need to prepare for PO interview in addition to banking terminology.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. You can say I am not good at IT i.e. why I wanted to be in the field of General Banking

      2. No. They will post you a place where Tamil and English is used.

      3. No need to go in depth of your Electronics Subject . There's a lot of time so you can take a overview.

      4. for stuff -- read the article from this blog named- How to prepare for Interviews and follow the books mentioned there
