     Disclaimer: The above cut off is based on the factors that influence the cut off in any normal examination. However, the final cut off will be released in due course by the Exam conducting organization after the examination. In any case, the cut off published in the official website of SBI will be final and binding on the candidates.

    This is an attempt on our part to give you idea regarding the number of attempts you should make in the examination though the level of examination plays a vital role in determining the actual cut off marks. We have taken the level of exam as similar to last year and that is why, based on increased vacancies, we have made our prediction. Carry on with your preparation in full swing so that you can crack this prestigious and most sought after examination easily. We wish that you finish this year as a PO in SBI catering to customers.

    All the best!!
