Don’t Lose Hope, until the Final Result comes out!

Dear PaGaLGuY readers,

Today IBPS has declared the PO – IV written exam marks of all
the candidates those who are shortlisted for interview. Now every candidate has
their score card in their hand. Since IBPS has declared the score card, many
candidates are worried about their final selection.

It is a human nature, everyone thinks about their selection.
Questions like, I got less marks in the written exam but my interview was good
or I scored good marks but my interview was average. Will I qualify the final
cut off or not?! What are my chances of final selection?

Now your final selection depends greatly on the interview marks.
In the final cut off, interview marks play very important role. But, are we talking
only about the candidate’s interview marks, not about the performance of the candidate
in the written examination?

No, the point made here is that the interview procedure forms the most critical
section of the selection process. So, in a case where a candidate has performed
really well in the examination but has had a very average interview session,
might lose on the chances of selection. At the same time, if a candidate
has performed on an average scale in the written examination but has scored
good marks in the interview holds a very high chance of the final selection.

For instance, during the last year’s examination i.e. IBPS PO
III, a candidate who scored 20 to 30 marks ahead of the cut-off margin (a very
high score) did not get selected finally as they couldn’t score well in the
interview. In another case, a candidate who scored marginally above the cut-off
i.e. 5 to 10 marks more than the cut off, received the final call as they
performed really well in the interview.

So, at the end of the analysis of the previous trends we realize
that one should not lose hope until the final result gets out. Both the process
(written and interview) are important, it’s just that interview procedure
provides a clearer picture to the assessor about the candidate.

All The Best !
