In this post we will present you the compiled data regarding last year cutoff  IBPS PO exam 2015.

IBPS conduct IBPS PO exam every year for recrutment of Probationary Officers in Public Sector Banks.

What is Cutoff? Why it is important?
For clearing IBPS PO Exam and recruited as PO in Bank, you need to clear certain cutoff i.e minimum marks to qualify for next phase or round.

Like- For appearing in IBPS PO Mains Exam you need to clear Preliminary Exam with certain marks in each section.

From 2015 exam onwards, IBPS has started two tier exam pattern-
1. Preliminary Exam i.e Phase I
2. Mains Exam i.e Phase II

One thing that students need to keep in mind is that cutoff is applied at sectional level and overall all means you need to secure minimum marks in each section and minimum marks to qualify for next phase.

For Example- Suppose Mr. X scores in English -10 marks, Reasoning-10 marks, Quantitative aptitude-12 marks.
 Mr. X total Marks is- 32 out of 100 for Preliminary exam.

IBPS has cutoff at two levels in this stage- 
1. at section level and 
2. at overall.

Now IBPS has Sectional cutoff like English -10 marks, Reasoning-10 marks, Quantitative aptitude-12 marks.
Overall cutoff-34

So,Mr. X get minimum marks in each section as per IBPS Sectional cutoff but not get overall minimum cutoff, then he is not qualify for Mains exam.
