IBPS SO Cut off

Before the IBPS SO final result is released, IBPS releases two separate cut off lists: Provisional Allotment and Reserve List. The following are the explanations for both lists:

Provisional Allotment in IBPS SO is defined as the minimum marks that students must obtain in order to be provisionally allotted in any of the participating banks. Provisional Allotment will be determined by calculating out of 100 and based on the date of birth to eliminate ties.

IBPS will prepare a backup list, which will be the final waiting list, to fill up to 10% reserved vacancies in participating banks for each category. Provisional allotment will never be considered for students on the reserve list.

As a result, the maximum and minimum IBPS Specialist Officer Cut off for various previous years is listed below, both by category and by post.

Factors affecting Cut-off

The students’ Preliminary exam scores will not be considered in the final merit list. The IBPS cut off marks will be determined based on the following factors:

  1. Total Number of Vacancies
  2. Marking scheme
  3. Total Number of Candidates Participating in each stage
  4. The difficulty level of questions
  5. Last year cut-off trends
  6. Reservation norms
