    Dear Friend,

    If you belongs to General Category then you will not be able to appear to any of the Banking examination as your age is already 31.The age limit criteria to apply for the bank PO examination is 21 years to 30 years.

    Best Wishes....

    Re: Can I apply for Banking exam at the age of 31 years being a general category Aspirant?

    Sorry sir, you can neither apply for Bank Clerical exam nor for Bank Probationary Officer (PO) exam.
    As you have crossed the age limit for both the exams.

    The clerk CWE conducted by IBPS (Institute of Bank Personnel Selection) demands for the candidates within the age limit of 18-28 years.
    and the bank PO exam asks for the age limit of 21-30 years.

    And your age is 31.
    Hence, you are not an eligible aspirant.

    Other than the age criterion, there are many other criteria taken into consideration by the banks like academic qualification.
    Wherein the candidate needs to secure 60% in SSC, 50% in HSC, 60% in graduation.
    Even if this is catered by you, you cant appear for the exam, as the age criterion is not met by you.

    Hey friend,

    Being a General Category candidate with 31 years you cannot apply for the Bank exams.The Bank exam may include Bank PO and Bank Clerk which are held for candidates to join in for the post of probationary officer.

    This exam are conducted by many exams in favor of recruiting for the respected posts.There are certain eligibility criteria which are being framed by the respected bank which you are applying for and they are:

    Eligibility for Bank PO and Clerk:

    For writing these exam the candidate should be a citizen of India.

    Candidate should have a age limit of 21-30 years for General category for Bank PO.

    For the Bank Clerk exam candidate need to have a age limit of 18-28 years.

    Regarding the education qualification for the exam you need to have completed a degree from a recognized university with 60% aggregate.

    For writing the Bank Clerk exam you need to have completed +2 from a recognized board.

    As you don't satisfy the age limit for the exam you are ineligible for writing the Bank Exams

    No you are not eligible to write Bank examination at the age of 31 years...

    The required age limit for general category candidates: 21 years to 30 years.

    Age relaxation is given to OBC for 3 years and Sc/St 5 years.

    Educational qualifiction:
    Graduation degree is must required to give any Bank examination.

    So you are not be able for Bank examination...
