    Selection Process of Probationary Officer:

    The selection is being made on the basis of performance in written test and interview, sometimes there is also provision for Group Discussions as a part of selection process.
    The pattern of written test is more or less similar in all public sector banks. The written test is taken in two forms which are objective & descriptive:
    Objective Tests (Duration 135 minutes)

    S. No.
    Name of test
    No. of questions
    Medium of exam
    1
    Test of General Awareness
    50
    English & Hindi
    2
    Test of English
    50
    English
    3
    Test of Quantitative Aptitude
    50
    English & Hindi
    4
    Test of Reasoning
    75
    English & Hindi


    Total
    225



    The candidates shall be required to qualify in each objective test as per the cut-off marks determined by individual banks. For wrong answers there is provision for the negative marking which is normally 1/4th i.e. one marks will be deducted for four wrong answers.
    Descriptive Tests (Duration 45 minutes)

    It will consist of 4 questions out of which the candidates are required to attempt 3 questions only. The test will be of 60 marks (i.e. 20 marks for each question). The test will be only qualifying and the marks obtained therein shall not be reckoned for preparing the merit list. The candidates shall have the option to answer the descriptive test either in English or Hindi.
    Interview
    Selected candidates will be called for Personal Interview by the respective Bank.
    State Bank Group:
    However for State Bank Group the pattern of Probationary Examination is little bit different which is as under:
    Selection Process:
    Tier I (Preliminary Examination)
    Objective Tests (Duration 120 minutes)
    Candidates have to appear in objective type examination conducted by the bank which will consist of:
    1. Reasoning Ability Test
    2. Quantitative Aptitude
    3. General Awareness/Computer Knowledge
    4. English Language
    Tier II (Main Test : Duration 180 minutes)
    This will be an Objective and Descriptive type examination
    The objective type examination of 2 hours duration will consist of :
    Test of Reasoning
    1. Data Analysis and Interpretation
    2. Marketing Knowledge
    3. Test of English Language
    4. The Descriptive type examination will be a test of English knowledge that has to be done in 1 hour.
    Tier III - Group Discussion & Interview :
    Selected candidates from Tier I and II are called for Personal Interview and Group Discussion conducted by the respective Bank.
    Remark: This is the broad pattern of Bank PO Exams, however now-a-days each bank is coming up with slight difference in the pattern of exam, so keep an eye on that. We will inform you the exact pattern for coming exams on an ongoing basis.
