IBPS SO Cut off

IBPS releases two separate Cut off lists i.e. Provisional Allotment and Reserve List before the IBPS SO final result is released. Both the lists are explained as below:

Provisional Allotment: Provisional Allotment in IBPS SO is defined as the lowest marks that students have to obtain provisionally allotted in any of the participating banks. Provisional Allotment will be calculated out of 100 and after eliminating ties on the date of birth basis.

Reserve List: IBPS will prepare the backup list which will be the final waiting list to fill up to 10% reserved vacancies for each category in the participating banks. Students in the reserve list will not be considered for provisional allotment.

So, the maximum and minimum IBPS Specialist Officer Cut off for different previous years is tabulated below as category-wise and post-wise.

Factors affecting Cut-off

The marks obtained by the students in the Prelims exam will not be counted in the final merit list. IBPS Cut off marks will be decided on the basis of various following factors:

  • Total Number of Vacancies
  • Total Number of Candidates Participating in each stage
  • Difficulty level of questions
  • Marking scheme
  • Reservation norms
  • Last year cut-off trends
