Now, if you are hoping to get such a lucrative job, then you must know about the IBPS SO cut off. In the following post, we would be taking a look at the IBPS SO Cut Off for the previous year, so that you get an idea about the expected cut off for IBPS SO 2018 as well.

What is the IBPS SO Cut Off and Why It Should Matter to You?

To put it in the simplest of words, IBPS SO cut off is the minimum marks that you need to score to get selected as an IBPS Specialist Officer. If you ‘clear the cutoff’ as it is said when you get the minimum marks, you can be sure of getting the call for the next round of the IBPS SO Selection Process. Since your selection depends on whether you have scored enough marks to clear the cutoff, we would say that IBPS SO Cutoff is pretty important for the exam.

What are the Factors on Which IBPS SO Cutoff Depends?

Well, the cut off for the IBPS SO cutoff depends on a number of factors. The factors and how they influence the cut off is given below:

  • The Number of Posts – More the number of posts in IBPS SO, less would be the cutoff and vice-versa.
  • The Difficulty of the Question Paper – More difficult the question paper, less would be the cutoff
  • The number of candidates giving the exam – The more the number of candidates giving the exam, the higher would be the cutoff
  • The category that you belong to – Like most other examinations, the cutoff for general category candidate would be a bit higher that the IBPS SO cut off for reserved category students.
