Discussion On IBPS Specialist Officer Exam 2013 

With IBPS now over, a talk on expected cutoff in IBPS this year has begun. The attendance this year at IBPS Specialist Officer Exam was around 50%-55% (our estimate). With test centers interchanged between cities (like candidates at Bangalore were allotted centers at Mangalore, 250 km away) was a big reason for less attendance numbers at the exam. The exam was held across India on 16th and 17th March 2013.

Paper Analysis:
The exam was of 200 marks and was of a 2hr duration consisting of 200 questions. With the test being online this year the results are expected to be announced in the later half of April. The paper was easier compared to the previous year. Professional Knowledge was simple with almost 60% of the questions easily answerable. Quant (Mathematics) was also simple but a few questions were very time consuming. English was of moderate difficulty, Reasoning was a bit tough but about 60% questions were answerable.Best Of luck To all the candidates who gave IBPS this year. The result link will be available here once the results are declared. If you agree please pass on this article to your friends

@Rajveer Singh: What accuracy ratio are you expecting. If your accuracy ratio us above 90% there is a much fair chance. Last year 114 was Cutoff in Marketing and this year we expect it to be 110-112 for GEN candidates.
