IBPS SO Exams 2016 : Previous Year Cut-offs Marks

The IBPS SO (specialist officer) exams 2016 are a wonderful opportunity for professional degree holders to enter into banking sector. By now, many of you would have started preparing for the specialist officer online test. Hence we have compiled the list of last year`s cutoff marks along with the number of vacancies for each post.


IBPS SO recruitment is being conducted to fill IT Officer, Agriculture Field Officer, Marketing Officer, Law Officer, HR Officer,Rajbhasha Adhikari etc.
The profile of these positions are different from the regular Officer & Clerk jobs in public sector banks.Therefore a separate paper called ‘Professional Knowledge’ is part of the written test. Click here to Download IBPS Professional Knowledge Computer Quiz

How Many IBPS Specialist Officer Vacancies?

Specialist officers are required only in less numbers compared to PO Exam Vacancy. And that’s one of the main reason for the total vacancies to be less than 5000 every year.

As part of IBPS SO IV recruitment, that was held in Feb 2015 – banks had created a average total of 3931 jobs:

In 2014, approximately 4400 specialist officer vacancies were announced.
So there is a high possibility for the total number of vacancies in 2016 could be around 3000 – 3500 only.

Previous Year Cut-off Scores:

Just like the PO & clerk exams, IBPS also releases cut-off scores for specialist officer exams. In order to qualify in the written exam, cutoffs are applied in two stages:
  • on Individual tests
  • on Total score
All candidates should secure the necessary score in both these areas to qualify for Interviews.

Individual Cutoffs: Although there are 5 different positions, the cutoff scores on each section was almost similar for all with only minor difference between the categories.

Therefore, we are giving you the common cutoff range for all sections that was fixed for IBPS SO/ SPL exam 2015 which will help you understand better.
  • English Language: 8 - 12
  • Professional Knowledge: 10 - 14
  • Reasoning: 8 - 13
  • Quantitative Aptitude: 5 -  8
  • General Awareness: 6 - 10 (for Law Officer & Rajbhasha Adhikari)
Like in all exams, the cutoffs for general are higher than OBC, SC & ST. So you have to prepare accordingly.
