IBPS PO interview questions answers and tips

IBPS has become one of the most important exams in India.You become eligible to apply for 19 banks.But simply clearing the written exams does not guarantee a job one need to face IBPS PO interview.

Interviews are not conducted by IBPS.They are conducted by banks doing recruitment for example if you have applied for UCO bank then UCO bank will take the interview.IBPS score cards only make you eligible for the same.

IBPS PO interview planning

The interview is not easy.So proper planning and preparation from your part is required.Candidates should take care of each small points as each and every thing adds up.A single mistake from your side may cost you job in government bank.

Banks call candidates in ratio of 1:4 or 1:5 (where 1 is number of the post and 5 or 4 is number of the people called).So instead of selection rejection process is adopted.Proper planning for IBPS PO interview is required.I am listing below points to help candidates in this regard

  • You should get all documents required in IBPS PO interview ready.I have created document which lists all documents required.You can download the document list from download link mentioned at end of this article.They do allow you to appear for interview if you miss some docs but this does create negative impression.You have to give written undertaking that you will produce the documents later on.
  • IBPS PO interview duration is of 15 min.It can be less than 15 min but not more than 15 min.
  • Write down answers of each and every question mentioned in documents of this post.You can download questions document for free using the link mentioned at end of the post.You should prepare answers for any questions arising from these answers.You can also modify the answers so that no confusing questions arise.
  • You should also practice answering these questions and check your voice.You should speak slowly and clearly.You can take help of your friends or family for feedback.
  • It is good to give few interviews to your friends or family.This will increase your confidence.
  • There is one great way to kill interview anxiety.Give some job interviews just to have interview feel.It will really help you and is great way to prepare for IBPS PO interview

IBPS PO interview questions

IBPS PO interview questions can be grouped into below groups

  • Profile based HR questions — Questions based on your profile.
  • Personality Test questions — These questions are asked to judge your personality.These can be really confusing.It is one of the most difficult questions.
  • Banking Questions — You can expect banking questions asked in IBPS PO interview.They expect you to have basic knowledge of Banking industry.You should also have updated banking industry news.
  • Current Affairs — Some panels do ask questions based on latest news headlines.If there is some big news in Finance area then chances of questions from that section becomes more
  • General Questions — You can expect one or two filler questions in Interview.They are not of great importance.Interviewers ask them to know more about you.
  • Bank specific questions — You should be aware of latest news or history of bank you are going interview for.For example you are appearing for UBI bank then read some history and current news about UBI bank.You can get the details from Bank website or from wikipedia.

I have listed most of the questions in IBPS PO interview questions document.You can download the document for free using the document link at end of this post.I have also included answer formats for some of the questions and suggestions for some of the questions.You should download the document and prepare answer for the same.

IBPS PO interview preparation

You should ideally start preparing for interviews after clearing written test.But many candidates are confused due to below reason (or have below questions in their mind)

  • What to learn for Interview
  • Where to find resources for interview preparation
  • They may ask anything so no need of preparation
  • Interview of every bank will be different so no need to prepare for interview before interview call comes from a bank
  • I am good in handling HR questions so no need to prepare
  • I have not scored good marks so might not get selected.
  • I have got good marks in written so no need for interview preparation.Written test marks is more important.

The above questions are genuine considering not much information is shared from IBPS or Bank about Interview.But these should not be reason for not preparing for IBPS PO interview.You can use above resources (the two documents in this post) to start preparing for your interview.I would suggest reading news headlines (economics sections with more detail).It is best way to prepare for Financial current affairs questions.

In case you are appearing for interview of a particular bank then read few news headlines in recent past about the bank.It is good to know this information.They expect you to have knowledge about the bank you are going to work for.So it is good to have some idea about the banks.

IBPS PO interview book

All the documents shared above are good enough for IBPS PO preparation.But in case you want dedicated book for interview preparation then you can refer the book below.

    I have cleared IBPS PO 4 and have been allotted a bank. During the Application form fill up, I had not mentioned that I have work experience because I feared that I would not get a NOC. But I found out that during pre -employment formalities, I have to sign an undertaking stating, I am unemployed and if it is found out that I have lied, then I might lose my job. I want to know, if I can provide all the required documents of employment. Will they consider it as I have not mentioned that in the Application Form?

      You should not disclose about your previous employment to any one now

    Hello Mam,

    I have a question that while applying for ibps po 4 i did not mention that I am working with state bank as clerk from past one year.
    But during my interview for the ibps po 4 in Feb. I have mentioned my experience to document verifing officer bcoz at that time I have got the approval from state bank to appear in ibps po 4 interview and I was allowed to appear in the interview by the officer and my experience was also included by the officer. Now I have been selected with psb as po.
    My question is that can psb reject my candidature as I haven’t mention the work experience during ibps application registration and have mentioned it only at the time of interview.
    Please reply mam this is making me very nervous.

  10. Ajay Kumar

    Hello,
    My name is written as AjayKumar ( no space between Ajay and kumar ) on my 10th mark sheet while it is written as Ajay Kumar (space between Ajay and Kumar) on HSC,BCOM and MBA marksheet so i have a doubt that while filling form for any government vacancy which should i write ????
    is this going to create some problem if yes then how can i correct this ?
    I also asked about it to one of my friend he told me that sine its mistake of space, not of the spelling so it will not create any issue.

    And also Staff selection commission often instructed that name should be as recorded on matriculation certificate while applying/filing any form.

    Please help me
    Appreciate your prompt reply
    regards

  15. P.MANDAL

    mam, I have got 105 in OBC catagory in IBPS PO IV and my interview was also very good..hope to get my first preference but
    ( my problem is though married I have not given the spouse name in ibps form and leaved it blank) There was also no maritial status asked .they have just asked spouse name.
    will the bank can cancel my candidature for (suppresing the information).mam what will I do ?????will i tell them at joining or not .mam, plz reply I need ur concent on this issue very badly

    1. P.MANDAL

      Mam ,when i asked it at interview varification person about the issue he dosent say anything about it…now mam what will i do as if i got in a bank they will think i have suppresed the info……..plz mam suggest me something i am very tenced

    2. Esha Upadhyay

      This is not a big issue.There is gap of few months between application fill up and joining.Can not your say that you got married in the gap

      1. P.MANDAL

        As i got married in 2013 and i also have an marriage certificate for the same…if i say i got marriage in the gap i will be caught

          1. Esha Upadhyay

            Why you think this is a problem at first place? Being married is not something that will create issues in getting a job.It can only have restriction on places you can relocate to or love to join.

            Even if you have not mentioned in application you can get it corrected or mention it during document verification.

  16. Divyanka Tanneru

    Mam in SBI Asso PO, in online application I gave graduation percentage as 62.8, but it’s actually 61.13, the document verification person calculated again and wrote d percentage on the sheet he had and ticked it. He ticked all other boxes for other certificates too. He dint say anything and I was allowed to attend interview. Will it affect my candidature?? I’m tensed mam. Kindly reply. I will be very grateful to you.

  56. Naina

    Hi Ma’am,
    I had filled in the application form, my current designation as Senior Sales-HR Ex (the word limit finished) now in my experience letter I have my designation as Senior Executive. Because I was in both the departments. Now will they accept it and moreover there is no separate relieving letter same letter has the date of relieving as well because there is no company policy to issue separate letters is it fine for PO IV. They have asked only for experience letter. Pl reply soon

      1. Naina

        Ma’am,

        Thank You for your reply. ma’am do we need to take only experience letter ? As for one company it was so small that it did not issue any offer letter and even experience letter they have issued on demand.

    Hi I qualified for ibps clerk but I not having OBC certificate
    Will they accept latest obc certificate pls reply

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Did not get you? You said you do not have OBC certificate and then you say do they accept latest OBC certificate

  65. Abhinav M

    Hello Esha mam,

    I found your website very useful. Thanks a lot for all the information you have provided. I qualified under OBC category. My caste certificate was issued in 2011. I recently came to know that you need to separately get a Non-Creamy layer certificate issued after 3 years of the date of original OBC certificate. I got the same about a week back. So on the last date of application(11.08.14) I had a valid OBC certificate but the Non creamy layer certificate was issued on a later date. Will this affect my interview?

    Regards.

  66. vinod kumar

    Hello Mam,

    ibps po ke interview ke liye character certificate ki bhi jarurat padegi kya, interview call letter me mention nhi kiya hai. Character cetificate kisse banwaani hogi agar jaruri hai to.

    pls clr my doubt

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      If not mentioned in Interview call letter or Admit card then leave it else you can get it from Gazetted Officer or school or college

  67. Pawan Muddineni

    Hi,
    My interview is Scheduled on 20th Jan’15 at tirupathi for PO.Yesterday while traveling to mysore to hyderabad i lost my bag containing my all my original certificates in the bus.I took the FIR from policestation and also had all the xerox copies for my certificates attested.I want to know the process for getting my certificates from SSC board and Intermediate board, if im not able to produce my certificates during the interview do they agree to attend the interview by showing the FIR and attested copies, if there is any other way please let me know ASAP.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Yes they will allow you based on them but you will have to write an application stating you will provide them at later stage.Also you can check your SSC board and Intermediate board guidelines for duplicate issue of the documents.

    I cleared ibps po written exam and preparing for the interview. In the application form i mentioned that i had degree in computer language. But actually i did B.Tech in Computer Science and I have no other degree specifically related to any computer language. In our syllabus we had many computer languages.

  85. ROHIT

    Hello Mam
    Hope you are doing good!!
    I cleared the written paper of IBPS PO and preparing for an interview. Please help me to clarify my doubt. Last year also i attended an interview. Last year i showed my working experience but this year i didn’t mention it in the application form because i lost my experience supportive documents. Will it be create any problem in later stage of selection process?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      This is tough to say.If they know about it then they will ask for the reason of not mentioning it this time which will create negative impression.If they do not know about this then fine.

      1. ROHIT

        Mam, your answer is my problem. I want to know; Is there any possibilities that Interviewer will have my last year application details? If it is so, then in that case i will say to them about my an exp. and will convey the reason why i didn’t mention the exp. details. Will it be correct approach or should i hide? Please suggest.

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          They will not be keeping the history or refer to it before interview

  101. kiran pv

    Dear madam,

    My name is Kiran and I’m from Andhrapradesh. I have the following queries, Please answer me,

    1)I was shortlisted for ibps po 4 interview. I’m a 2012 passed out (B.Tech, CSE). After the completion of my B.tech I joined M.Tech in 2012.But I didn’t mention about my M.Tech. in application form because I was pursuing M.Tech at that time ( I was in final semester at that time). I completed my M.Tech. in this December. So , if they ask me what I’ve been doing these years after graduation , can I tell that I did M.Tech or will it create a problem as I didn’t mention it in the application form?

    2)Many people in this blog are talking about character certificates,what are these ?

    3)Should I take my resume with me to the interview?

    Thank you.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can mention about your post graduation.Character certificate is document which was required by IBPS.You can get it from your previous school or college or any Gazatted officer.It says I know the person for this duration and he possess good moral character

  102. manish kumar tiwari

    Dear concern,

    i am Manish kumar tiwari and i have all the mark sheet of 10th 12th and gradation but i do not have degree or certificate of these so what should i do for it and also i have work exp with axis bank and kotak securities so what document is required for showing as a experience and cherecter certificate is required or not…

    thanks

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Please apply for all certificates.Wondering why you do not have certificate of any this is not good.Also for work experience you need experience certificate and if currently employed then pay slips and joining letter would help.

      Character certificate is required but not necessarily from previous employer.You can have it from your school or Gazatted officer

  103. suman

    i have cleared ibps po 4 exam but in application form i have entered marks as 60.00 % where as my actual percentage is 59.85%. as in ibps po 4 only graduation degree is required as eligibility criteria will tha be a problem during interview?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      60% is the eligibility criteria and anythiung below that they will not consider even if you are rounding it up

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          I have read it and know there is no specification of marks but they do give preference to candidates having first class which is 60%

          1. suman

            first you say its the eligible criteria now you say they give preference to those candidates. I have many friends having 40 % and they are po’s. you should not spread false information. neways i will not refer to this site again.

          2. Esha Upadhyay

            If you know everything and have so many PO friends then Why ask here? You said you have many PO friends with 40% marks then I would say please check previous eligibility criteria it was 60% for PO and 55% for Clerk.

            By the way you visit site or not does not matter to me but All the best for Interview and other exams

          3. suman

            maam.. i dont think you follow news. In 2013 ibps po notification the criteria was 60% for po and 55% for clerk. But when the notification was released due to its opposition and other follow ups it was again notified that the criteria of 60% and 55% was removed in 2013 iself and all candidates having a degree are eligible. In short words the criteria was revised. You should know all these things if you want to provide correct information or atleast follow daily news. here is the corrigendum in 2013 according to which the criteria was revised .

          4. Esha Upadhyay

            Eligibility criteria is minimum set of parameters you should qualify to.The marks percentage do help in better interview marks.So candidate having good marks have bit of upper edge above other candidate having less marks but same written test score.Same is the case with computer literacy.

            I am not making you nervous by saying so.It is hard fact you need to accept.Also try to prepare well so that you can edge over candidates having better marks then yours.

          5. suman

            thank you maam, then you should say that they have an advantage. And when arrived at the same written and interview score, preference is given on the basis of age seniority. It is also written in the notification. and if i have more written and interview score than people having more percentage in graduation, than surely i will be selected before them. do you agree with this?

          6. Esha Upadhyay

            Yes it is the case.Prepare well for interview.In interview panel one person scans your profile and gives point.Others ask you questions and evaluate based on that.So you need to score more in questions if your profile is weak.Note marks is one part of profile,computer education is other part,banking knowledge or background is other part.There are so many categories there.

          7. suman

            ok maan, thanks for the encouragement. i will prepare banking and marketing concepts well and also other interview questions. can you refer me some material for interview. and also plzz respond to my query. i have enetered

            i have cleared ibps po 4 exam but in application form i have entered marks as 60.00 % where as my actual percentage is 59.85%. as in ibps po 4 only graduation degree is required as eligibility criteria will tha be a problem during interview?

          8. Esha Upadhyay

            No this will not be an issue.Please download the materials given in the post also you can buy prepration material from the site

    Hi..my name is chaitanya &i have qualified for po4.i had a doubt regarding obc certificate. i got it on 15/11/2013. Is it eligible for interview or not.plz give me rply.

    1. siva

      Friends i have a solution for this issue that is to we will write mails to requestiong that to consider our candidature , if they receive so many mails from all corners of our nation they will defenatly consider us so friends send requesting mails who dont have OBC certificate before last date(11-08-2014) and friends pass this information to every one and tell them to mail ibps contact mail id.(because friends so many cadidates who are very poor economy background if they wil rejected of this reason it is too bad)

The reason for my gap/ no work exp is this. i have cleared 3 bank exams this yr and has gud score. should i mention my personal problem as reason for gap in interview?

    2. i lost my 7 sem marklist and has given application in the university for duplicate. i haven’t recieved it yet. will hat be a problem during verification?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can mention your the reason above for Gap.There is nothing wrong in it.You can appear for IBPS interview without marksheet .They may tell you to write letter that you will produce it before joining.Keep the application for duplicate with you

    Hi Esha,

    I have been shortlisted for the IBPS PO 4 Interview and require assistance/support/help from you to crack this interview. Please could you suggest/advice the best approach/ways/techniques/methods to get through this interview effectively and also some suggestive reading and materials to have a well knowledge for the question that may be asked by the interviewers. I really appreciate all your support and guidance in this regards.

    Just one query w/ regards to the documents required at the time of interview. I have read/heard somewhere that they (IBPS) will require NOC (No Objection Certificate) from a person who is currently employed, is it True?

    If yes, then what if the employer does not provide the NOC unless a person leaves the organization?

    Please provide your advice for the above query.

    Thank you for all you support/assistance.

    Warm Regards
    Shailesh

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      NOC is applicable for Government employees only.You can read and download documents in this post also for banking materials (questions related to banking in terview) you can buy Udinra PO book for 300 INR.

Will my candidature be cancelled…

          2. Esha Upadhyay

            IBPS PO advertisement says
            OBC caste certificate containing the Non-creamy layer clause should be valid as on the last date of online registration i.e. 11.08.2014 (issued within one year prior to the last date for online registration).Caste Name mentioned in certificate should tally letter by letter with Central Government list / notification.

            You can have it issued after the date but do you have any certificate issued before this date

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can prepare for interview this year it will be a learning experience but IBPS will not consider as certificate is after the date.

      1. Suhail

        1. Esha Upadhyay

          yes IBPS asks for central government letter for availing any reservations

  150. sandher

    the required date for educational qualification is on or before 11.8.2014. but in my provisional i have dated 9.9.2014.but i have passed my exams(results published) before July 20. If I get selected in written exam, will they consider me for interview?

  151. Ankita Chakraborty

    No but I graduated on 2014 only.do I still have to justify it? Like the gap of 6 7 months approx

  152. Ankita Chakraborty

    I have appeared for ibps po 4. I have not mentioned my present govt job experience in the application form.will it create problem later if I successfully clear the written examination, during the interview? What will happen if I don’t mention it at all ?

  153. Rain Song

    Thank you very much Esha…….I think I'll go with IBPS PO………..

  154. Rain Song

    Hi,
    I'm preparing for both RBI ASSISTANT and IBPS PO 2014. Can u tell me which is the
    better one….

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      IBPS PO is better than RBI Assistant based on pay scale and growth..but IBPS PO is transferable job..but RBI assistant is fixed location job

  155. Ramya

  156. raj

    Hello mam,
    Yes, I made mistake that when I submitted form in IBPS PO but unfortunately Now, there is no edit application for offline payment method so do u think that it will be effect on my interview ? because in that
    method, i mentioned lowest percentage in application form which is 36 but I got 63 in degree so whats your solution on that plz reply..

    Thank you
    raj..

  157. raj

    Hi.. mam

  160. s.kundu

    I can't speak english fluently.will it be a reason of failure in ibps po interview?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You need not be fluent..Just make sure you are understandable and grammatically correct.It is expected that you are able to convey your thoughts.If it is the case then no need to worry

  161. smitha

    Hi mam
    I want apply for ibps po exam, my query is whether i will go for classes or i will prepare by myself. which is better way plz suggest me,

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      It is tough question and depends on you..Classes just help you with materials and keep you in flow..But if you are preparing yourself then you need to motivate yourself and study you will not have any tutor or class to force you.

      Both can be opted and depends on one's approach.Classes do help but self preparation is best if worked sincerely

  162. chetan singh

    Thanks you so much for your prompt reply ma'am. You really have helped me a lot. Thank you so much! :)

    main problem is that getting degree and marksheet is not in my hand.how i can force to college management and university for available my degree and marksheet .
    plz show me another way instead of getting marksheet and degree
    is attested photocopy of net available marksheet by college director be valid?
    and provisonol degree in place of degree.?can be valid

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      No Provisional Degree will not do the job..It is given by University so that you can use before getting original one.You can give interview using it but Original is required later.

  166. Chetan singh

  208. Rochak

    Hi, Is there any difference between a PO and an MT?? How do the banks segregate between the two? Or are these two the same?

  209. heena

    mam, i am from b-tech. (cse). so if they ask why i chose banking then can i say due to job security as software companies do provide job but not assurance and secondly gender equality. As once i gave an interview in a company and they selected me, but at the time of joining few boys came for interview so they again conducted an interview and rejected me and many girls.

  210. jyoti

    ibps people did not let me to attend interview because my graduatin date on provisional certificate was on 2nd aug is there anything i can do i triedibps helpline they said nothing can be done regarding this issue please suggest if you have any solution

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      If you have mistake in passing date then you can give interview but if your passing date does not meet eligibility criteria then you can not give interview.The last date was 1 July 2013

  222. Himanshu

    hiiii..need a suggestion.. actually I lost my provisional certificate( degree hvnt recd), though I hv a photocopy and scanned copy of provisional certificate(graduation). what should i do??
    but I have provisional certificate of MBA.

  223. Naresh Kumar Saroya

    hi my question is..
    Do we need to secure any minimum marks out of 100 in interview to get it cleared….?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      The merit list is created taking Written test and Interview marks.But certainly minimum marks in Interview is required.You do get the marks if you do not give too bad interview.This makes written test marks important as well

  224. ankit singh

    i mean what should i tell the interview panel abt the missing certificates…and do u think that my interview would be conducted ?

  225. AMIT BANSOD

    DEAR MAM THANK U SO MUCH.YOUR GUIDANCE AND SUGGESTIONS HELPED ME SO LOT.IT WAS REALY NICE INTERVIEW FOR ME AND HOPING FOR POSITIVE RESULT.

  226. arin

    thnks mam for the reply…. but what if i say …after completion of b tech ,due to lack of jobs i prepared for competitve exams n as time was running out so took admsn in Mtech. Jobs in mtech offered are more towards teaching n i find PO more promising one as compared to thm as it involves more growth opportunities. My mother is retiring next month n my father is an retired ex serviceman so right now is my priority is JOb n start earning to support family.

    pls give me ur suggestions mam

  227. vasavi

    In ibps po application i mentioned my stream as only engineering,but i am from ece,is that creates any problem at the interview time

      During document verification (before interview process) you can bring this point in light.It does not create problem.Problem happens if you are not meeting eligibility criteria

    i cleared the PO 3 with 76 marks in general category. I completed btech (mechanical) in 2011. Thn prepared for one year n cleared gate 2012 n got admission in mtech in one of NITs. This is my last year in mtech n my PO interview is scheduled on 10th Jan 2014. Now my confusion is should i tell thm about my MTech or hide it becouse if i tell thm thn next question will be y PO after Mtech. This is very tricky becouse MTech in mechanical has nothing to do with Bank. if i say PO has larger job vacancies n job stability, i dont find it very convincing answer. N i dont wanna end up defending po against Mtech or mtech against PO. My priority is to perform well in interview. Pls suggest me should i hide it or not n reason to tackle the question

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      If you don't mention MTECH then it would be tough defending the gap..You can defend the gap by saying job hunt and competitive exam preparation

  235. anjali

    those who have different passing date are 100% going to be rejected.i’d intrvw today and got rejected because my passing date was above 1st july 2013…sad but i’ll try nxt tym.. :(

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      As mentioned in IBPS advertisement for PO..

      All the educational qualifications mentioned should be from a recognized University / Institution and the result should have been declared on or before 01.07.2013.Proper document from Board / University for having declared the result on or before 01.07.2013 has to be submitted at the time of interview. The date of passing the examination which is reckoned for eligibility will be the date of passing appearing on the marksheet/ Provisional certificate.

      If you have mistake in passing date then you can give interview but if your passing date does not meet eligibility criteria then you can not give interview

  236. Puneet Gupta

    Hi Ma’am… Thanks for all your wonderful feedbacks and suggestion. I really found them very helpful so I thought I wud ask one for myself. I have done B-Tech(C.Sc) and MBA in Finance from a reputed B-School Due to financial crisis in 2010 I landed up into a job in sales in Pvt Sector Bank. I have a few months gap in between my job and also i have not been working for a few months after I left my last company. I didnt liked the sales profile in the pvt sector , hence I looked up to PO/MT profile in nationalised banks as a good opportunity. My score is 88 (general) . Can u suggest me a good reason to support my stand?? Also, wat do u think are my chances of selection?? Will my academic profile be looked as too overqualified???

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Your academic profile is over qualified but recently many candidates similar to your profile are joining Banks..You can say whatever you said here for choosing banks as career

  237. Arjun

    Hi, I dont have semester wise marks sheets with but i do have cmm, provisional and od certificates.
    By giving any undertaking will hey allow me for the interview?

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Why you do not have semester wise mark sheet..These documents will do.Do you mean that you do not have sem mark sheet for all sems

  238. Vivek

    and when I say score card I mean score card from IBPS to our mailing address. I think printout of scorecard should be enough.

  239. Vivek

    Hi Esha,
    I had one doubt. I have not got any IBPS scorecard till now and my interview being on 9th. The Interview call letter too doesn’t mention any score card to be taken there. But your PDF mentions scorecard is necessary. Can you please confirm anything on this. In addition to this I paid online for the exam and only have the application form with me. I am guessing this is the only thing I need regarding to application form/process(I don’t have any payment receipt)

    Regards,
    Vivek

  242. Sandy

    Hi,
    I have applied for IBPS PO interview as an OBC candidate. however my community certificate is not as per the format suggested by them

    a) the format is different
    b) the certificate is old and dose not mention any thing about the creamy layer

    Now for the interview i am not sure if my current community certificate will be accepted or not. Also my score is only 69

    please suggest a solution.

  243. dhruva

    my passing date in provisional certificate is 24 july 2013……will i be allowed for interview as i hv cleared ibps po 3

  244. vijay

    thank u mam for replying as i was tensed that they will cancel my candidature due to non avaliblilty of non creamy layer certificate

  245. mayur

    Hello Madam,
    Can u please share the promotion policy and designations for PO…

  246. Praveen

    Banking I can brag about but what should I tell from switching chemistry to Banking?
    They may ask when you put 2 years in chemistry for PG why you are looking career in banking domain?
    honestly I knew there is no much scope in chemistry except for teaching , but banking is offering more prominent career.

    So can ou help me with coming out a solid reason for it.
    thanks

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can say that after graduating you realized that there is only teaching jobs available in Chemistry domain.So you started preparing for competitive exams and also took admission in post graduation.To get decent teaching job you need to go for higher studies and your current financial condition does not allow to dedicated few more years studying without earning anything.So your opted for Banking.

  247. vijay

    Hello mam,
    i belong to OBC category & have orignal document( caste certificate & validity). but i dont have non creamy layer certificate as my family income is above that limit & hence i cannot avail. i have mailed this problem before exam & after result several time yet they haven’t replied. will ibps allow me for interview as in general category or will they reject? please guide

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      As written in IBPS advertisement

      Candidates belonging to OBC category but coming under creamy layer are not entitled to OBC reservation. They should indicate their category as General in the online application form.

      So you will be considered General candidate

  252. Praveen

    Hi
    I am going to have my interview for PO on Jan 4th2014.
    I did B.Sc. in Zoology Botony cnd Chemistry and later did M.Sc. in Chemistry.
    I filled the form on B.Sc. basis
    Now I am wondering what reason should I give for coming into Banking industry.
    If I choose not to tell about M.Sc. they will surely ask about what I did past 2 years.
    If I tell then they will ask why after PG in Chemistry you want to come in Banking?

    Please guide!!!

    Dear Ma’am

    I have cleared my po exam my.querry is that i was working in a private institute as a lecturer following my po result i had resigned from that organisation and they are not providing me niether experience nor reliving letter and i had mentioned this experience in my po application form i only have offer letter and bank statement as a proof on my work ex beside this I had also written a mail regarding my experience certificat.I worked their for apptox 2 years

  310. utkarsh

    mam i am having 63 marks in ibps. i have done btech in biotechnology (2012) and doing mtech in polymer. my mtech will be over by 31st july 2014. so should i tell them about my mtech?? will it cause negative effect on my selection as date of ibps allotment is march 2014 and my mtech will over on july 2014???
    and how should i handle the question of why u switched to polymer after doing biotech… as the actual reason is i did not got admission to any biotech course in colleges near my home town so i prefered to do this.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      They will ask Why banking after Biotech? They might not be interested in Polymer after Biotech question.You can skip your MTECH part if you want.There is no problem with that.But if you show it then they will ask after doing MTECH in Polymer why you switched to Banking

  311. ajay

    Interview question: what is the reason that a certain bank is ur 1st choice ?

    Please tell how to reply?

    Thank you.

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Answer will depend on bank of your choice..For example banks like PNB and BOB are one of the largest bank in India(you can read download bank preference document from IBPS Clerk article of mine) to get an idea about different banks..Similarly there are banks who have significant presence in different regions

  312. Abhishek

    as I never been to varanasi so please help me out
    i will be thank full to you

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Frankly speaking I personally think you can do better in your field than in Banking.Anyways you can say that after doing above education you thought of getting decent jobs in your field.But you were not fortunate to get a decent job.While searching for job related to your field you heard about IBPS exams.You thought it as great platform to get good job.As this was centralized exam for major banks.The job may not relate to your education background but getting good job is your first and foremost priority now.

    mam,
    i have completed my btech(ECE) in year 2012.i wanted to do mba.but then i consulted with my parents and decided to go for GATE exam as i had this thing to prove myself.but later i lose interest in these technical subjects.did good at GATE but not that good.i always wanted to go for management line because somewhere i feel i have a good communication skill.i ddn’t take any coaching.have been shortlisted for interview with written marks 74(gen).dnt know whether this mark is enough or not.have not joined any coaching as well.
    Can you say how many people have been shortlisted for interview of IBPS PO?any chances?what reason can i give for the gap of one year?what type of questions can i face.Somewhere it is my last chance to do good.otherwise i have to again go to GATE and do mtech which i really dnt want.i have a good career.can it be useful?

    Hi,

    Ma’am,

    Thank you for replying to my query. Wel ma’am I still hv one more query to get answered, do I need to bring NOC as I am currently working in private company and what about character certificates… :)
    Thank you in advance…

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      There is no need of NOC if you are working in private company.Character certificate is required but not from your company.You can have it from your ward Councillor or other person (Gazetted is good) or school.

    yes mam i got interview date n venue all dt……..shud i prepare for interview or not

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Yes prepare for the interview..Candidates are made to sit in Interview hall.Document verification takes place there.You can reach any IBPS person (doing document verification) and explain you case.If you inform it yourself then chances are that you might be allowed for interview.

I am really worried because If I say them I was writing civil service exam their expectation from me will be very high and at the same time I have to defend my gap ,any valuable tips plz ???

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      You can say that you were preparing for IAS exams but were not successful in first attempt.As time was running out you switched to IBPS exams.

      This is big issue..Have you received the Interview date and all? After reaching interview hall approach IBPS and tell them whole story..It all depends on them How they handle the matter.

    hello mam,
    I have a query…
    I am engineering 2013 passout student.
    I have cleared d ibps po exam with 63 marks in gen. category.
    now,the query is that at the time of online form filling, Ihave wrongly written d per. of graduation as 80% as our university provides us the cgpa as 8.26 as at that time i didn’t know the conversion formula for converting cgpa to %…but now i came to know that I have 77.60%…
    Now what to do?
    I have interview on 9th…?
    do they allow me to sit in the interview??
    plz do reply…

    1. Esha Upadhyay

      Yes they will allow you as you are above the eligibility criteria.People out there are not so strict.They are friendly people and understand problemsof candidates.Untiland unless things are way to fishy they do allow you interview chance
