    Re: Can I apply for IBPS PO exam being more than 20 years old?


    Eligibility for IBPS PO:

    Educational qualification: Any degree from recognized university with minimum of 60% for general category and there will be 5% relaxation for reserved category.

    Age Criteria:

    Minimum: 20 years
    Maximum: 30 years

    Upper age relaxation for reserved category candidates is as follows:

    3 years for OBC.
    5 years for SC/ST
    10 years for PWD.

    Your graduation percentage is very less, to apply for the IBPS PO exam, previously it used to be only graduation pass, but from this year, IBPS changed its criteria to minimum 60% in graduation for general category.

    So, you are not eligible to give IBPS PO Exam.

    But you are eligible to give IBPS Clerk exam.

    Eligibilty for IBPS Clerk:

    Educational qualification: Any degree from recognized university.

    Age Criteria:

    Minimum: 20 years
    Maximum: 28 years

    Upper age relaxation for reserved category candidates is as follows:

    3 years for OBC.
    5 years for SC/ST
    10 years for PWD.

    Re: Can I apply for IBPS PO exam being more than 20 years old?

    Friend,

    The age criteria to appear for IBPS PO exam is that you must have completed 21 years as on a given
    date mentioned in the form. So by the time IBPS declares notification of next PO exam anf if you
    complete 21 years of age, then based on your age criteria you'll be eligible for this exam.

    But issue is regarding your marks in graduation which is too less to be eligible for this exam.
    Earlier IBPS didnt set any minimum percentage criteria but the banks which will be recruiting
    for PO vacancies, they used to ask for IBPS score card as well as atleast 60% in graduation.

    This time it may be possible that IBPS may set the minimum 60% or 55% criteria and hence
    you wont be eligible for this exam.

    Based on 45%, you'll also be not eligible for many other central govt as well as state govt jobs as
    competition is getting tougher and marks cutoff has been increased to
    60% in maximum jobs.

    I would suggest that you should appear for Reexam to improve your marks and at the same time
    you should start the preparation of Banking exams, so that if you miss this exam due to
    eligibility criteria, but you should be eligible for next exam.

    You can also join any Part time job, so you dont need to go to college for ReExam and this part time
    will give you little bit of financial independence.

    Hi

    IBPS - Institute of Banking Personnel Selection.
    This is one of the best Entrances when Banking sector is concerned. This is because it conducts an All India entrance in which students participate to take jobs in the top 20 government banks in India..
    So its considered to be a very desirable entrance exam for all those who wish to make a career in the banking sector..

    Now coming to the Eligibility Criteria of the IBPS, they ask for a minimum graduate in ANY stream from a recognized college or university board in India with over 55% marks in it. If you are not a complete graduate then also you CANNOT apply for the same..
    Age requirements are from 20-28 years. Hence yeah sure if you are above 20 years old, then surely you could have applied, BUT your graduation marks are too low for your applicability. Thus You cannot apply for that reason..

    All the best
    Regards
    RANJEET

    Re: Can I apply for IBPS PO exam being more than 20 years old?

    You haven't mentioned whether you have completed your graduation or not ! See as per age limit the basic criteria is that you must have finished your graduation in order to appear in the Bank Po exam.
    Also, as per the minimal criteria for percentage in graduation is concerned you need to have atleast 55 % . Since you mentioned that you have 45% in graduation this year. I guess you are still pursuing it, so it's better that you first finish it & then you are elligible for the same. Also, try & increase your percentage so that you could meet the criteria for marks. Concentrate on your studies first & in the mean time you can finish clearing your basics in aptitude & reasoning. Start reading good english novels so as to get a strong grip over the language, it would surely help you in the long run.

    All the very best !! Take care

    The criteria for the IBPS PO exam is below :

    => one must be graduated in any stream from any recognized university .

    => Age must be between 21-30 for geenral cast , age relaxation for reserved cast , ex-serviceman and PWD as per the government rules .

    So any indian citizen who fulfill the above criteria are eligible for the exam .

    Exam consists one objective type paper .
