MH-MBA-CET 2011: An Analysis || IBPS Clerical CWE admissions are ON.

A Bank PO:

Role:
A Bank Probationary Officer (PO) is a first stepping stone in any bank. This job is generally offered to the fresh graduates without much prior work experience in bank. There fore a Bank PO can be asked to do anything till the completion of his/her probation period (thats how the name- Probationary Officer, right???). The working and conduct of a PO is closely monitored by the immediate senior. Once the employee has been confirmed in service he/she can be given routine work like posting, passing, scrolling or advances or anything that is related to banking.


Eligibility Criteria:
Though the eligibility criteria for the selection of a PO varies with bank to bank, but for most of the banks, the minimum requirement is a Bachelor’s degree with 50% in aggregate. The cut- off percentage and other qualifications required vary from bank to bank and are usually mentioned in the bank’s notification. Almost all the banks across India — including those in the private sector — keep needing probationary officers and conduct exams from time to time to recruit them.

Anatomy of the test:
Even when the paper pattern is not fixed and various bank opt for slightly different patterns for their selections, the syllabus and the question types are almost similar and as listed below.
The exam generally comprises four sections: English, Reasoning Ability, Quantitative Aptitude and General Awareness. Apart from these, a few banks also include questions on Computer Awareness, Banking Awareness and Marketing Aptitude in their written tests. The test comprises 200 to 225 questions with five options in each. The duration of the objective- type part normally varies between two hours and two and a half. It usually has negative marking for incorrect answers. Such answers generally attract one- fourth or 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question in Bank PO Exam.
Almost all the PO exams have a analytical reasoning paper, immediately followed by the aptitude test. Analytical writing is generally qualifying in nature and the marks of the same is not counted for final merit score.
