No IBPS Clerk Interview – Yes, It’s Official:
It is officially announced by IBPS, that no interview will be conducted for IBPS Clerk. Now, the next question arises, how will the selection will be made for the IBPS Clerk?
How Will the IBPS Clerk Selections Be Made?
Now, 100% weightage will be given to the written examination. Earlier the ratio was 80:20 for written examination and interview. Now the candidates have to score enough to get clear the final selection cut-off. This is fine for candidates set to appear for 2016 – 17 season of IBPS Exams.
However if a candidate had lower marks in the CWE this year itself, and was banking on scoring more in the interviews to land a bank job, that thing is a bit difficult now.
No IBPS Clerk Interview, Is It Good?
In a way, it is good (especially for the candidates who have the interview phobia) that there will be only two phases that the candidates have to clear to finally get selected for the IBPS Clerk. There will be less pressure on candidates in the absence of interview
Now, there will be only two phases of the examination Phase -I the preliminary round which will be the one-hour exam of 100 marks and 100 objective type questions and Phase-II the Main Written Examination which will have 200 objective type questions of 200 marks with the duration of 2 hours. The candidates clearing the sectional as well as the overall cut-off in the preliminary round will be allowed to give the Main written examination. The candidates clearing the cut-off (sectional and overall) of the main written exam will be selected for IBPS Clerical cadre.

But, there is a catch, A candidate should qualify in the CWE Clerks-V main examination and be sufficiently high in merit to be shortlisted for provisional allotment. This will make the exam more tough for the candidates to clear and now the recruitment process will be more selective and competitive to clear.
The provisional allotment will be based on the reported vacancies by the participating organisations. Since the clerical recruitment is State/UT specific and proficiency in the official language of the State/UT is preferred, so the allottee banks before issuance of offer letter will ascertain the candidate’s familiarity with the official language of the State/UT. The banks are yet to decide the common process regarding this subject matter. The Decision of the Bank in this regard shall be binding on the provisionally allotted candidates.
