Questions can be different for each candidate appearing in IBPS Clerk interview.Questions depend upon qualification of candidate, his background and also panel taking interview.Different panel have different questions.

But there are certain questions which are asked to most of the candidates.I will be listing such questions below along with answers.Also different questions can be clubbed into groups like current affairs,business knowledge (banking related questions),General Awareness and situational questions.I will also be listing these questions below along with answers.

I am listing some common questions asked to candidates in IBPS clerk interview.

IBPS Clerk interview questions – Based on your profile

Question 1 .Introduce yourself / Tell me about you

There is greater chance that your first question is tell me about yourself or introduce yourself.They want to know about your backgroud and other details with this question.Many interviewers use answer of this question to ask second question.If you are in a panel focusing on HR questions then this is must question.

You must include below details in order to frame answer for above question

  • Your personal information.This includes your name,father name,number of brothers and sisters,mother name and your residential place.
  • Your Educational details.You should include name of your school or Board.In case you have good marks then mention it else do not mention marks.
  • Your Work Experience if any
  • Any additional qualification like diploma or certification in computers
  • Extra curricular activities if you have won awards then mention it.
  • Your hobby if any

Things to remember

You should not take more than 5 mins to answer this question.You should write down the answer first.Then try too read it out with a clock in front.Check the time taken to answer it.First question is most important one.A good answer to this question makes good impression.This also brightens your chances of clearing interview.

Question 2 .Questions on your hobby and extra curricular activities

Sometimes interviews do ask questions about your hobby and extra curricular activities.They assume that you should be able to answer questions related to your hobby.This is really important.So prepare well for questions related to your hobby.

Question 3 .Questions related to your family

It sometimes gets very interesting as well as irritating for candidates.Lets say your father is a business man.Then they will say Why do not you join your father’s business instead of joining as Bank Clerk.Again if your brother is in different occupation then they might say Why instead of choosing that career you are selecting IBPS Clerk? Through these questions they really want to know the reason of joining as Bank Clerk.

Question 4 .Questions related to your education

Questions related to education arises if

  • you have gap in education.
  • you have gap after your last degree.
  • you have good marks in 10th or 12th but nor so good in graduation or other way around.

IBPS Clerk interview questions – General Banking

You are going to work as Bank Clerk after selection.So you should have decent knowledge of Banking industry.So knowledge of common banking terms and terminology is mandatory.They will not ask you complicated things or terms but be prepared to face common banking questions as mentioned below

  • Difference between Check and Draft?
  • What is overdraft?
  • Common banking terms and definitions like RTGS,NEFT
  • Difference between debit card and credit card

I have created a document of banking questions and answers.The document includes answers to above questions and also others along with answers.

Questions asked to over qualified candidates in IBPS clerk interview

IBPS clerk eligibility criteria is graduation with 55% marks.Now many candidates with Masters degree (MA ,MCOM ,MSc,MCA,MBA) and professional graduation degree like (BTECH,BE) are also appearing for this post.Candidates belonging to above education background have to face a question on this.They might ask you

  • Why you want this job after doing above degree?
  • You will leave this job after getting better opportunity.
  • Have you applied for other jobs as well?

I have not included the answers for these questions as answers will differ for each one of you.You should not give common answer as they will immediately understand.Your reason should match your profile and look realistic.

Questions asked to experienced candidates in IBPS clerk interview

Many candidates appearing for this exam already have job.They might be working in private sector or government sector.In case you are working in government sector then you will have to show no objection certificate.They might ask below questions to experienced candidates

  • Why are you leaving your current job?
  • if your current job package is more than they will ask why you want to join low paying job?.
  • If your job is not related to banking then they might ask a question on this as well

Please read above point for answers related query.

Current Affairs Questions asked in IBPS clerk interview

Some panels in IBPS Clerk interview do ask current affairs questions.Candidates should read newspaper to prepare for these questions.You can also watch news for this purpose.Current affair questions can be clubbed into below groups

  • Banking questions — Any new announcement related to Banking made by RBI (Reserve Bank of India).This is indeed very important as they expect you to be in touch with latest banking updates.You will be joining this industry so you should know these things.
  • City based questions — They may ask you questions on your hometown.These questions may not be i true sense current affairs questions.These questions are asked to check your knowledge about your city and locality.
  • Other major events — Out of world questions are sometimes asked but they do not expect you to answer all of them but if you do you have advantage.It is god thing to scan latest headlines for last one month before interview date.They might ask you few on these.

Local Language Questions asked in IBPS clerk interview

Candidates having knowledge of local language are given preference.If you have applied for a state then you should have working knowledge of that state local language.They do test your local language knowledge so it is better not to lie about it.IBPS Clerk interview panel will check your local language knowledge using below methods

  • Read a paragraph from local language news paper or from a book.They do provide you the newspaper or book.This tests your reading skill.
  • Then they will ask you to make them understand meaning of the paragraph you read.You can use your mother tongue or English for that purpose.This tests whether you understand the language.
  • They might ask you to write something in local language.This test is not often carried out but they may ask you for it.

Candidates having no knowledge of local language should prepare for it.They do get preference over candidates with no knowledge of local language.

Scenario based questions asked in IBPS clerk interview

You can face scenario based questions in IBPS clerk interview.Interviewers try to judge your decision making capability using these questions.I am giving you one example.You and your best friend joined same Bank.Your best frined told you that he used wrong educational documents to get selected.Your friend is very poor.Now what will you do?

Other Questions asked in IBPS clerk interview

There are many questions depending upon your profile.Without getting a view of your profile it is difficult to tell questions to be asked.Above questions are standard ones you should prepare.Good answer to above questions leads to success.

How to prepare answers for IBPS Clerk interview questions

Follow below steps in order to prepare answers for these questions.

  • You should prepare your resume first.This is important.
  • After creating resume write down all the questions which comes in your mind.These are resume based questions (HR questions you are going to face in Interview).
  • After listing all the questions write down the answers.You can take help of your teachers or parent or me in case of any issues.
  • Get the answers reviewed by anyone knowledgeable.
  • This will help you get your answers right as well as help you find out questions asked based on these answers.
  • Start reading the answers and practice them hard.This is important for your confidence.
  • Now read Banking questions and newspaper for current affairs questions.
  • Read local language if you do not have knowledge of it.

IBPS Clerk Bank preference

After cracking IBPS clerk interview you have to decide bank preference.I have created documents to help you make the decision.The data is taken from Reserve Bank of India so it is genuine.Two factors are important while deciding bank preference

  • Location — Number of branches bank have in your state.The more the number of branches bank have in your state better it is.It increases chances to get posting near your residence.I have created a free download document for you.
  • Bank Growth — The bigger the bank the better the facilities.If the bank business grows year after year better it is for you.I have created a document to address this point as well.

Now you can download the files from links provided below (3rd and 4th). The third file lists 5 banks with maximum number of branches (along with number of branches in your state). You should copy all the five banks corresponding to your state.Now search those banks in second file.Second file lists all banks in order of their profit last year.So you can easily found biggest banks and banks growing fast.

So biggest and most profit doing banks should be given preference (with maximum number of branches in your state). In case you have any confusion feel free to ask me using comment form.

    I got job as a clerk in corporation bank. joining dates are yet to announce. I have also applied to rrb APGVB Clerk now. my query is which of these two jobs is best. As rrb clerk is in SBI sponsored bank. in future govt holding in PSB is going to transferr. so our mark as a public sector employee may lost. what are the chances of implementation of nachiketh more committee recommendations..please help as I got job with your guidance.. I am from village background so not able to decide by myself both scores in IBPS is 130

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You have only applied for APGVB Clerk if you get selected then you can move there.If not stay with Corporation bank.Banking is core industry so Government will have control over the public sector banks.Corporation bank is good enough bank so be happy.

    Hello Mam.. please must reply I am soo very tensed! :’(
    I have provisionally allotted in Indian Overseas bank and unfortunately I did not know before the exam that candidate has to submit KBC Certificate in IBPS prescribed format
    Hence I had given OBC certi in state gvt format at the time of interview
    I later on came to know about IBPS prescribed format and I thought I would not get allotted because of this but I did..

    Now I know that Banks do check all the documents that Candidates provided and then further send offer letter

    Now I am in extreme tension whether I will get offer letter or not ?? Will I able to join the bank??

    Please please if you can suggest me anything Please :’(

    Hi Mam,

    IBPS clerk III results were declared yesterday. West Bengal cut off for allotment 64 and for reserve list 63.4 . Unfortunately, i got 63.2. They have mentioned that people not selected or not in reserve list would not be considered further for any proceedings.

    I just want to know is there any chances of being selected as technically i didnt fail. What if reserve list for 10 percent is exhausted or vacancies are higher ? In that case will they cosnider us ? Please do let know.

    thanks madam. i think apart from that everything went well. yes they asked me can i read kannada newspaper. i said no but i am in the process of learning and it will take some time. but i can frame small sentences as i have already started learning kannada. and told that i bought my kannada spoken book also. then they asked me to say one line in kannada. i said but with a little mistake. (instead of my… i used I in kannada). they corrected me. i said sorry and promise them to learn as soon as possible.

    hello madam,
    i gave my interview in bangalore. it was simple. but due to one reason i am little worry. since i have only basic knowledge of kannada so i was giving my interview in English. one member of the panel asked me something in Hindi and i replied in English. i knew that answer should be given in that language only in which question is asked. but since i was in south so i replied in English. and after that he became angry and asked do u know Hindi? why are replying in English. i am north indian. i was shocked and said sorry sir then spoke in Hindi that i know Hindi. then he said its ok. did it create negative image of mine? will they reject me? my marks is 109. cut off is 63.

    Good evening mam,

    I Vinay Kumar from Andhra Pradesh got 99 marks in IBPS Clerical III written test exam and i belong to ST and cut off for my category is 77 marks..I have done with my interview on 12-02-2014.

    Questions they asked
    1)Why banking? My answer was,A) No doubt banking is one of the fastest growing sector in the world,more over there is good career growth and job satisfaction,being a banker i can do public service.

    2)What is Inflation? A) The situation where production is less than demand is called infaltion.

    3)Difference between SBI & other banks? i started saying that A) SBI is the largest bank in india with number of branches and one of the oldest among all the banks,earlier it was know as imperial bank of india before RBI came into existance.(they were not satisfied with my answer).

    4) Head quarters of SBI and Imperial bank of India..A) SBI HQ is in Mumbai..Imperial bank of india (With doubt fully i said Mumbai).

    5)Capital of Uttharkhand and frm where it has separated? A) Capital is Deharadun, but i couldn’t answer frm where it has been separated.

    6)Who controls Stock exchange? I couldn’t answer this question.

    7) Role of banking in indian economics? A)It controls inflation,circulates money,generates income from Interest rates,provides loans.

    This is how interview went on and every thing was in my local language(Telugu).

    Madam,can u please judge my performance and please tell me weather i have any opportunity of getting into clerical or not.

    Please mam consider my request.

    What could be other related questions based on my hobbies.

    Also I am not so good in Marathi though I can understand, read and write basic Marathi but I am uncomfortable speaking in Marathi. But still I am practicing the same. If they ask Introduce yourself in Marathi, then after introducing in Marathi can I say I am uncomfortable speaking but still I am learning ? Is it fine to say that I have studied Marathi only for 4 yrs as I am from CBSE board and that time I didn’t know the value of the language so used to study just for marks. Thus I am not so well versed with it.

      No instead of saying that you say that you can read and write Marathi (and most important understand it). Just speaking part you are not very good.There is no need to point your weak areas in interview.

      ON cooking they can ask which food you cook the best and how? Dance is broad topic they can ask from classical if you are interested in that

    Hello ma’m.. I am from Andhra Pradesh but working in Chennai. Due to this I have written Clerk exam in Chennai. I was shortlisted for interview but was told in the scorecard that the state/ UT I have applied for is Tamil Nadu. Are there any chances for me to be placed in Andhra Pradesh if I get the job?

    from 2008-2014..in six years what did you do?
    Can i say that i passed out in 2008 and until 2010 i was giving private tuitions and preparing for ssc exams. but i couldn’t clear ssc and then my fathers heart attack and i thought it would be wise to move out and look for a job when i landed a job in pwc (dec 2010) and stayed there working for two years uptill 2012. (i left because of night shifts and i wasn’t getting enough time to prepare myself for banking exams) In between my cousin who is currently a po in a nationalized bank encouraged me to take bank exams and i started preparing for the same . I couldn’t clear in 2010 but this year i passed.

    will this be a satisfactory answer ???

    Also is there any employment verification for private sector jobs ?? Also if they ask how do you think englidh honours can help you in banking what should be my answer..please give me your valuable inputs on this please mam!!help!! and regarding marriage i dont want to say i am married that will bring more questions i think as if i am unemployed why did i get married ? please advise.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Because of family pressure you got married.There was need of someone who would share responsibility of my mother so that proper care of father can be taken.

      Couple of modification – While working in PwC your cousin who is PO encouraged you for PO post and due to regular change of shifts your health conditions deteriorated..So you started preparing for the Banking job.You could not clear in 2012..There is no employment verification but you may require to prove that you have worked in PwC

    What you did these six years?

    mam,
    To answer “What you did these six years?” Can i say this that .first six months after graduation in 2008..i worked in an electronics shop..and also continued my studies.That time i was preparing only for ssc but couldn’t clear and slowly lost interest due to the lengthy recruitment process of ssc . But my father had a heart attack in 2010 and i had to support my family so I looked for a job and finally got a job in Pwc (Pricewaterhouse coopers) where i worked for the next 1.5 years. I left it because of continuous night shifts and wasn’t getting enough time to study in 2012 and since then I have been preparing for bank exams but didn’t appear in 2012 as preparation wasn’t enough. This year i qualified written. Right now I am giving private tuition to students of class 8 and 9 in English. (I am married but that’s is not mentioned in the application…there was no space to mention it..will it be wise to mention that I am married…please advise..really confused)

    Can you please tell me if this would be a satisfactory answer ?? Please help madam.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Along with you have to support your family you can add that you got married (at the sentence or before that).You can give this answer but six years gap is too much.Also PwC say that you did not get time to prepare for Banks exams (not just study).Also bit more details on reason you gave up SSC (apart from long recruitment process)

    Hi mam,

    whether consolidated marksheet is enough or semester wise marksheets are compulsory?

    Because i have consolidated marksheet, provisional and degree certificates except my last semester marksheet(i have 3 out of 4 semester marksheets). Last semester marksheet is given by university.

    He told me that ” It is important to enter in bank and after that by giving internal bank exams you can go in whichever department you want or they will give you department as per your educational qualification” that’s why I am going on this way to secure my career with govt job with my interest (IT field/Department).

    Dear mam,
    Problem is that to give ‘ IBPS specialist officer exam for IT’ I need to degree in IT related field (like BE/computer science/MCA ext). Now i m in first semester of MCA. I will get this mca degree after 2.5 years or more from now. So I am planing to enter in bank as a clerk and then I’ll try to give internal bank exams for IT department or in other way. I have done 3 year software diploma from NIIT institute. But it is not fit in IBPS’s criteria for IT officer scale 1 exam. Am I going in right way or not?

      practice is the key..select the chapters which are easy (like calculations) and you have 5 questions from it and practice it hard…two 5 marks question is based on data interpretation which is quite easy but lengthy due to calculations involved…So you have 15 calculation intensive easy questions..for rest 5 odd questions read chapters which you find easy

    I have done my Post Graduation in Microbiology in 2007 and have work experience related to my qualification since then….I have worked in reputed research institute for years together. I have published 6 papers also……but lack of good oppur., lot of struggle, low salary, Job related to the project availablity – Once project is over u are jobless. So this has made me change my decision seriously and adhere to the banking jobs. so how should I justify myself. Should I enclose the details of all my previous experiences, papers published…will it help me to show that I am quite a bright person and has done a good job during my tenure or else can that put me in the opposite side.

    2.You are in traffic jaam so will you take short cut or wait for the jaam to get cleared?

    Reply
    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Situational questions are used to test your decision making ability.

      1.I will keep my cool as getting annoyed will delay things.I will also cascade the information to Branch Manager so that third counter may be occupied to ease out the pressure.
      2.I will check the reason of jam.Then I will compare my short cut route duration with likely scenario of jam getting cleared.Based on above I will take decision.

    If you have not shown the experience then do not show it.You can say due to market conditions there was no on campus recruitment.So tried for off campus recruitment but was not successful..then you started preparing for IBPS (as 19 banks were recruiting based on its results).You also do private tuition for your own expenses..

    Getting a job is of utmost priority to you…As you have gap of around 2 years there is slim chance to get job in IT now. I am opting for clerk job.

And also if they ask "What would u do last 2 yrs after completed B Tech?" What will be my answers and should I mention my working experience? Please help me with answers…

      If you have not shown the experience then do not show it.You can say due to market conditions there was no on campus recruitment.So tried for off campus recruitment but was not successful..then you started preparing for IBPS (as 19 banks were recruiting based on its results).You also do private tuition for your own expenses..

      Getting a job is of utmost priority to you…As you have gap of around 2 years there is slim chance to get job in IT now. I am opting for clerk job.

What will be my answer…

      They will ask about the gap but English to banking is not significant.As per clerk eligibility requirement you are graduate and graduation in English is not professional degree.You must focus on preparing answer for the gap.

      So do you have work experience? if yes then they will ask why you want to change your current job..if no then question will be have you tried other options in between…Most importantly if your current CTC is less than Clerk CTC then you can easily tackle this question..if not then you should give alternate answer

      When did you graduated? if this year then you can easily say due to market situation there was no on campus recruitment this year..so I am under pressure to get a job..The trick of framing answer is it should match your profile and looks reasonable..you should not say something ambiguous..ambiguous answers will lead to another question and if interviewer is not satisfied then you are in trouble

      priyankasingh_cs gap of more than 2 years is tough to justify..you can say you were searching for job initially but were not successful to get decent ones..then you opted for private tuition career and in parallel started preparing for IBPS exams

    Surely If I get chance in State civil services i will leave the job (or job like that near my house) but currently I have no such option and after this this job I will like to continue and excel in this only

    Do you have any job experience or fresher? Are you married? Sometimes it is good to use your personal information to draft answer.One feature of clerk job is you do not get transfer outside the state.You can use this feature to draft your answer

        Hi Esha Ma’am, I had my IBPS Clerk interview on 22nd mar in noida. My score is 133 (gen)-delhi. My query is that I was asked very few and general questions in the interview. I am a management post-graduate and have 1.5 yrs of exp in recruitments. They did’nt asked me anything abt my qualification or experience.
        I am too confused with the kind of interview it had been. Plz let me know how can i rate this?

          As per IBPS Clerk eligibility criteria you are over qualified..Did they ask you reason for joining bank..Was there any questions relating to these..

            Ma’am,
            They just asked me that why do i want to join a public sector bank and not a private one, to which I replied and explained in brief the kind of job security public sector banks provide. I think they were quite satisfied with my answer, rest god knows.
            They also asked me the reason why I left my job, to which i replied that i was getting married.

            What can be the lowest marks for such an interview?

          2. Esha Upadhyay

            You had good interview (hearing things mentioned above)..please be positive and wait for the results..you might see yourself in Banks within few months..

          3. Rakhi

            Ma’am, my combined score for delhi gen is 68.2/100
            where do u I stand, kindly guide….

          4. Esha Upadhyay

            It is good score…But right now I am not in position to confirm that you will get job but things will be more clear after few days

          PNB and BOB are two most sought after banks..so competition will be tough..I can not say now that you will get or not
