SBI PO Cut-off 2018

Candidates preparing for SBI PO Recruitment exam 2018 often ask questions about “Expected SBI PO Prelims Cut-off 2018" or “SBI PO Prelims Expected Cut-off”. Official SBI PO Cut-off 2018 (General, OBC, SC, ST and other categories) will be declared by State Bank of India (SBI) after the announcement of the SBI PO result. But, here we can give you a brief idea about the expected SBI PO Cut-off 2018 (Prelims, Main & Overall).

SBI removed 'sectional cut-off' criterion from both prelims and main exam. Also, there is no SBI PO state-wise cut-off. So, candidates do not need to worry about SBI PO Sectional Cut-off 2018 or State-wise SBI PO Cut-off 2018

Many websites mentioned that there will be no considerable change as there is no major change in the difficulty level of questions of SBI PO Prelims. But this is not the only factor which affects SBI PO Prelims Cut-off

SBI PO Prelims 2018 Cut-off will be definitely high (as compared to last year), here’s why:

This year, a major change is observed in the SBI recruitment process. To understand this change let’s have a look at the old and latest notification of SBI Recruitment.

Old SBI PO Recruitment Notification (2017):

Latest SBI PO Recruitment Notification (2018):

SBI PO Recruitment Notification 2018: An important change

In both notifications, we have highlighted a critical line which will affect the SBI PO Prelims cut-off 2018. In the previous SBI PO Prelims exam (2017), 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.

So, SBI PO Prelims 2018 Cut-off will be higher, this year.

What is the expected cut-off of SBI PO Prelims 2018?

Now, before jumping directly to numbers let’s understand factors on which cut-off of any exam depends. The cut-off of any bank recruitment exam (like IBPS, IBPS Clerk, IBPS PO, SBI PO, SBI Clerk etc) depends on three main factors

• The difficulty level of questions

• Number of vacancies and region

• Number of candidates appeared for the exam

In our prediction, we have considered that there is no major change in the difficulty level of the questions, this year. The number of vacancies has decreased from 2300+ to 2000 and numbers of candidates are increasing continuously year after year. Keeping all these factors in find, here we predicted the SBI PO Cut-off 2018 for prelims and mains.
