The above tests except the Test of English Language and Descriptive Paper on English Composition will be printed bilingually, i.e. English and Hindi.
The Descriptive Papers of only those candidates who secure minimum qualifying marks in each of the objective tests will be evaluated.
Other detailed information regarding the written examination will be given in an Information Handout, on IBPS website which will be made available for the candidates to download along with the call letter.
E. PENALTY FOR WRONG ANSWERS
There will be penalty for wrong answers marked in the Objective Test. For each question for which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate one fourth or 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty to arrive at corrected score. If the total of the penalty for a test is in fraction, the marks obtained will be rounded off to the nearest integer, i.e. if fraction exceeds by 0.50 or more, it will be rounded off to next higher integer. If for any question a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as wrong even if one of the given answers happens to be right and there will be the same penalty of 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question deducted as penalty. If a question is left blank, i.e. no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty for that question.
F. STANDARDIZED SCORES
The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates will further be converted into standardized scores following Linear Conversion Method.
G. CUTOFF SCORE
Each candidate will have to secure a minimum standardized score in each of the tests to qualify in the written examination and to be considered for vacancies in the participating banks. The cut-off points will be decided based on the national average (National Average – ¼ Standard Deviation for General category candidates and National Average – ¾ Standard Deviation for Reserved Category candidates).
H. CWE SCORE CARD
IBPS will print the Score Cards for each of the qualifying candidates and will send the same by Registered/ Speed post to each candidate at the correspondence address
specified in his/ her online application.
I. VALIDITY OF CWE SCORE CARD
Score Cards issued by IBPS will be valid for one year from the date of issue of the Score Card.
Candidates can appear in subsequent examination(s) to enhance their scores if they so desire.
PRE-EXAMINATION TRAINING
It is proposed to impart Pre-Examination Training to a limited number of candidates belonging to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes/Minority Communities at some centers viz. Agartala, Agra, Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Allahabad, Aurangabad, Balasore, Bareilly, Bhubaneshwar, Behrampur (Ganjam), Bhopal, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Dehradun, Dhanbad, Gulbarga, Gorakhpur, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Hubli, Indore, Jabalpur, Jaipur, Jammu, Jodhpur, Kanpur, Karnal, Kavaratti, Kochi, Kolkata, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Madurai, Mangalore, Mumbai, Muzaffarpur, Mysore, Nagpur, New Delhi, Panaji (Goa), Patiala, Patna, Port Blair, Puducherry, Pune, Raipur, Rajkot, Ranchi, Rohtak, Sambalpur, Shimla, Siliguri, Shillong, Thiruchirapalli, Thiruvananthapuram, Tirupati, Varanasi, Vadodara, Vijaywada andVishakhapatnam .

IBPS, however, reserves the right to cancel any of the Pre- Examination Training Centres and/ or add some other Centres, depending upon the response, administrative feasibility, etc.

Merely attending Pre-Examination Training does not necessarily imply a candidate’s right to be selected in any of the 19 participating Public Sector Bnaks mentioned
