Uttar Pradesh had the highest number of successful candidates in the common written exam for clerical posts conducted last year. The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection had conducted the exam for recruitment to 19 public sector banks in four phases during November-December 2011.

According to the details provided in the IBPS Web site, Uttar Pradesh had 79,247 successful candidates.

This was followed by Andhra Pradesh and Bihar with 56,842 and 48,249 candidates respectively.

The total weighted standard scores of a majority of candidates were 121-165 marks. The number of candidates who crossed 200 marks was in single digits in almost all regions. The highest range in standard score was 206-211.

Various banks have already started using the scores obtained by individual candidates in recruitment process. They have been prescribing the cut-off scores as an eligibility condition for applying to the posts.

Recruitments for clerical posts by various banks are conducted State-wise. Therefore, the cut-offs for candidates from different States can vary even for the same bank. For instance, Bank of Baroda, which is in the process of recruiting 2,000 clerks, has announced a range of cut-offs. For vacancies in the North-Eastern States, it has fixed a cut-off of 120 marks. But for vacancies in Bihar, it has fixed 183 as cut-off.
