    This year, candidates who are going to appear in SBI PO and SBI Clerk recruitment exams will face a number of challenges, and here we are going to highlight some. Candidates should carefully observe these changes and be ready.

    Let's have a look at previous notification and latest notification:

    A Snapshot from SBI Clerk 2016 Notification

    We have highlights one of the major changes in SBI Clerk Recruitment Notification which will have a significant impact on the overall cut-off.

    In the previous SBI Clerk Prelims exam (2016), the candidates who qualified for Mains were approximately 20 times the number of total vacancies.

    This year (2018), the candidates who will get qualified for Mains Exam will be 10 times the number of total vacancies.

    The difficulty level of the exam plays a critical role in deciding the overall cut-off. However, if there is no significant change in the difficulty level of the exam then candidates can expect high cut-off (Higher than previous year SBI Clerk Prelims cutoff).

    Similar changes are also observed in SBI PO 2018 Recruitment notification. So, we can also expect high cut-off for SBI PO Recruitment exams.

    New SBI Clerk Syllabus 2018 (Prelims + Mains)

    Surprises are expected in each section:

    This year, there will be a fixed time to attempt each section (20 minutes each). So, there is a high probability that the difficulty level of the questions (more than 50% questions) will be high.

    It also means that there will be a variety of questions in each section (i.e., from low difficulty level to very high difficulty), different from previous year.

    Attempting all questions (in each section) of SBI Clerk Prelims 2018 online exam will not be a piece of cake. So, after downloading admit card for prelims of SBI Junior Associates Recruitment 2018, every candidate need to work harder.

    Similar changes are also observed in SBI PO 2018 exams. So, difficult questions are also expected in SBI PO 2018 recruitment exams.
