Common Interview; my experience

IBPS has conducted the common interview from 14 to 24 January, 2013 for all successful candidates in the common written examination. From my personal experience and of many others, the interview was trouble-free. My interview was started with self-introduction and lasted for about 15 minutes. The panel constituted with four members. After the self-introduction part, they moved on to test the subject knowledge and asked questions regarding my bachelors degree and post graduation subjects. After subject-questions, they moved on to ask some banking terms. The banking terms asked where comparatively easy and with that, they finished the procedure.

The intention of the board was clear that the wanted to test the candidates communication skill, style of expression, personality and language quality.

Result of the common interview conducted by IBPS

Result of the common interview will be announced by mid February 2013. IBPS is also expected to come out with rank list of candidates based on the marks of the common written examination and the common interview.

Expected Probationary Officer vacancies during 2013 and chance of getting in to the post

As per the information from reliable sources, more than 18000 Probationary Officer vacancies are there in public sector banks in India during 2013 other than in State Bank of India and its subsidiary banks. For these 18000 vacancies, selection will be solely from the rank list published by IBPS. Thus the final figure will be 61339 candidates for 18000 vacancies.

Let us work out it more clearly by considering different conditions

Not all the 61339 candidates successful in the common written examination need not necessarily be attended the interview

  1. Not all the candidates appeared in the common interview might be successful
  2. All the selected candidates after the written examination and common interview need not necessarily be joining in these banks as they may get other better opportunities

Thus considering all these possibilities every 1/3 candidate from the IBPS final rank list would be successful in getting a job. Thus, let us hope for the best.
