IBPS Score Calculation

This tutorial helps you on how to calculate IBPS score out of 100. IBPS refers to "The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection", which is an autonomous academic and research oriented Institute in India, with a mission of enhancing human-resource development through personnel assessment in 27 public sector and regional rural banks in India.

IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) conducts CWE (Common Written Examination), which is mandatory for anyone seeking employment in 27 public sector and regional rural banks in India with a selection ratio of 1:200. Here we discuss on IBPS score calculation process.

The CWE of IBPS conducts two-tier system of selection process. Tier I is an easier exam and tier II has a higher level of difficulty. Candidates who pass both stages of CWE will be called for the interview.

IBPS conducts CWE for the posts of IBPS Clerk, IBPS Probationary Officers, IBPS Specialist Officers and IBPS RRB (Regional Rural Bank).

IBPS Total weighted Standard Score for Clerical, PO, SO Recruitment:
Corrected Score in CWE: Marks obtained in each section is calculated by counting correct answers and subtracting the minus marks for the wrong answers. For example: if a candidate attended 34 questions and out of which 8 are wrong answers, then the corrected score is 26-2=24.

Equated Score: This score is based on the difficulty level of different sections of different sessions of the examination. For Example: If the average scores of all the candidates in a particular section is low, when compared to other sections, then IBPS will calculate an equated score to reduce the affect of the difficulty level.

Final Standardized Score:
The mean and standard deviation of the equated score is taken using the linear transformation methods to calculate the final standardized score, which is rounded off to the nearest integer.

IBPS score out of 100: Below is the detailed steps for calculating IBPS score.
1. First your examination score is normalised using equi-percentile method, that is the score is taken on a standard scale.

2. After that 80% weightage is given to your written normalized exam.

3. Apply 20% weightage to your interview score.

4. Combine both the Exam weightage score and interview weightage score, which gives you the IBPS score out of 100.

IBPS Score Calculation Example:
Consider your IBPS (PO) exam score is 120 out of 200. After it is normalised using equi-percentile method, your revised normalised score is 117 out of 120. Your interview score is 50 out of 100. Calculate the IBPS score out of 100.

Result:
80% weightage of normalised exam score = 46.8
20% weightage of interview score = 10
Total combined IBPS (PO) score = 46.8+10=56.8

NOTE:
Scoring atleast the minimum cutoff is required for both Main exam and interview to pass the selection process. Below tables provide the category wise cut-off marks for each section, and the total cut-off marks for the different classes of the society. Cut off scores are applied in two stages, on each test and on total score.
