  40. Hi Vicky,

    I have some questions to you about SBI SO Exam:-

    actually I want to know what is the difference between the IBPS so and SBI so question paper pattern? In Ibps official advertisement they mention the paper pattern, the full marks etc very clearly .But in sbi so advertisement they cannot mention the paper pattern clearly.they mention that --

    "The test will be of test of English Language, Reasoning and/or Quantitative Aptitude in addition to Professional
    Knowledge.

    Except Professional Knowledge (PK) paper, other papers will be of qualifying in nature. Candidates have to score minimum qualifying marks in these papers. The minimum qualifying marks will be decided by the Bank.

    To be eligible for being short-listed for interview, candidate have to score equal to or above the Cut-off marks to be
    decided by the Bank for the PK test, besides scoring equal to or above the Minimum qualifying marks in other tests".

    I cant really understand what are they saying actually . So plz clear this confution...


    I am eagerly waiting for ur rply.Its urgent

    with regards

    1. Harsh, first of all they have mentioned that they will select base on the no of applicants they receive, upon that they will decide to do exam or not. 2nd if they do exam, then the exam pattern (expected) will be same as IBPS SO, as mostly all the competitive exam have same pattern. Yes, you have to go ahead with just guess work.
