IBPS Bank Exam Syllabus

Bank Exam Syllabus: for IBPS PO, Clerk, Specialist and RRB Recruitment's

Dear expert mm readers! Planning to apply for a Bank Exam in 2016, and want to know the latest syllabus for IBPS recruitments? You have come to the right page. Being the primary facilitator of the Bank Recruitments, IBPS is the agency that formulates the “Bank Exam Syllabus” in India. IBPS consults with Banks and educationists to review and modernize their curricula at regular intervals, and they update it to the candidates through the exam notification.

Bank Exam Syllabus

As of 2016, the entrance exams for the recruitment to public financial institutions in India have an almost indistinguishable syllabus and pattern of organization. The situation is like, if you study for one IBPS Exam, you get a reasonably competent to the face the rest of the IBPS, SBI, and insurance exams. The modules are more or less the same; the only change is in the difficulty level that varies with the type of recruitment. Let’s check the common sections of the IBPS syllabus.
  • English: This test checks the candidate’s proficiency in the English Language in many ways. It includes objective questions that test the grammar, vocabulary, knowledge of antonyms, synonyms, and comprehension of a passage, ability to complete a sentence, etc. If necessary, there will be a direction before the question.
  • Numerical Ability: As of you know, clear understanding of the core mathematics is an essential requirement for a banker. This test aims to find the candidate’s calculation speed and ability to deal with numbers, and real-world problems.
  • Reasoning: This exam evaluates the candidate’s capability to think and respond. It includes the graphical questions as well as general brain-teasing problems that require logical understanding, comparison skills, mathematical skills, and a fairly good knowledge of the English language.
  • General Awareness: Emphasis is given to the banking sector when it comes to IBPS Exam’s segment on General Knowledge. IBPS often asks questions from topics like the history of banking in India, Insurance, Banking terms, New-age banking, Investment sectors, roles of the RBI, economic policies of the current government, etc.
  • Quantitative Aptitude: In simple terms, the QA exam in IBPS syllabus is a mix of Reasoning and Numerical Ability tests, questions being in an advanced level. It focuses on examining how fast a candidate’s logical and arithmetic thinking works when different types of data inputs (graphs, tables, images, etc.) are given for consideration.
  • Computer Knowledge: Whole of the banking industry now relies on computers and information technology, no other reason why IBPS has a test of computers in their syllabus. We have seen questions on browsers, security, MS Office (especially Excel and Word), Operating systems, shortcuts, and computer hardware, etc. in this portion.
  • Professional knowledge: IBPS’s specialist and RRB syllabuses include an advanced assessment section called “professional knowledge,” to examine a candidate’s mastery in some special duties that banking industry thinks important.  It includes questions on subjects like Business, HR, Marketing, IT, Law, Engineering,  Finance, Accounting, Agriculture Science, etc.

IBPS Clerk Exam syllabus

IBPS recently established a two-stage examination for IBPS Clerk Recruitment in 2015; the same is expected to continue in this year. The IBPS’s version of the syllabus for two online Clerk Exams that candidates need to take is given below.

The preliminary exam, the name IBPS calls the first test, is easier, shorter in duration and has only 100 questions to answer.  The purpose of the prelims is just to regulate the number of people appearing the Main Exam.

IBPS PO Exam Syllabus

There isn’t much difference between the syllabus for IBPS Clerk and IBPS PO in 2016.

Got it? Yeah, the difference is in the IBPS PO exam prelim’s syllabus, which do not have “Numerical Ability” but “Quantitative Aptitude” in place of that. However, things won’t be the same for examinations, except the IBPS PO questions to be tougher in both sessions.

IBPS RRB Exam Syllabus

IBPS Regional Rural Bank Recruitment is a single-session process that includes registration and examination to RRB Assistant, and RRB Officer Scales I, II, and III categories. The IBPS RRB Assistant Exam is equivalent to the IBPS Clerk; you can see the same in the syllabus attached below. Further information on IBPS RRB Exam

Here, candidates can choose either English or Hindi as their option for the Language Test. Candidates can also attend all modules in Hindi if needed. The same rule applies to IBPS RRB Officer Exams.
Some of the IBPS RRB Officer posts are for Specialists, and candidates who have previous experience in Banking & finance; you can see the addition of a suitable module in the syllabus for those exams.

IBPS Specialist Exam Syllabus

Banks have a few employees who don’t have the direct link with the regular customers, they work in the background, helping to run banking business smoothly: they are the Specialists. We have earlier discussed about IBPS Specialists recruitment in another article, do read it if you’re planning to apply for SO exam in 2017.
Coming to the syllabus for IBPS Specialist Recruitment, you can see there are only four units for this exam. The test of Banking Awareness is limited to Law Officer and RajBhasha Adhikari jobs. Importance is given to Professional Knowledge part, which gets 75 marks.
