Indian Bank calls for applications for Bank PO.
Congrats. Indian Bank is calling for applications. Cut off IBPs score 141 for general category. Many candidates ask " will I get interview? should I apply? "
ANSWER; It is better to apply by paying the fees and wait for interview. If you are called fine. Otherwise you lose only the application money.
SOLUTION: Passing IBPS CWE PO is not an entitlement. I know all of your know. -- Start preparing for Bank PO/Bank Clerks so that in the next CWE you can score 200+ marks. OK
