The IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel selection) also conducts the Common Written Examination for recruitment of Clerks for 19 Public Sector banks and Regional Rural banks.
Any graduate within the age group of 20 to 28 years is eligible for the CWE. For candidates from reserved categories, relaxation in the upper age limit is available.
Written Test Pattern
This 2-hour test consists of 200 questions (1 mark per question, 1/4th negative marking for wrong answers) - 40 each from Reasoning, English Language, Numerical Ability, General Awareness and Computer Knowledge.
All candidates who aspire for clerical posts need to appear for the CWE (Clerical) and secure the minimum qualifying marks (or higher) in order to get their scorecards. After getting their scorecards, candidates must apply to the various banks that they are interested in. Each bank may then conduct further selection processes, such as Group Discussion, Interviews, etc., separately.
