IBPS PO Cutoff 2022

There are three phases in the recruitment process of IBPS PO (Management Trainee), namely, the Prelims, Mains and Personal Interview. Both IBPS PO Prelims and Mains have two different kinds of cutoffs: Section-wise Cutoffs and Overall Cutoffs. The cutoffs of each phase must be cleared to qualify for the personal interview.

Candidates should also remember that Prelims is just a screening test. The score in Prelims is just used for screening, i.e., to shortlist candidates for Mains, and will not be considered for the final merit list. However, candidates must score as high as possible in Mains and Personal Interview in order to ensure provisional allotment. Thus, taking IBPS PO Mains Mock Test is a must to score higher.
