    The minimum age for a clerical post is 18 years. And the minimum educational qualification is 10+2.
    Hence please wait till you are 18 and then apply for jobs.

    All the best!!

    The eligibility requirements for clerical post may vary with the authority that carries out such examinations. For most of the central government jobs, the minimum age limit required is 18. The details on such jobs can be obtained from the official website of SSC, UPSC and PSC of the concerned state. This contains detailed information on the educational qualifications and the age requirements mentioned for a particular job. The candidate can apply for matching jobs through the web portal itself. The details on clerical jobs in banks can be obtained from the official website of IBPS. You should start preparing for the exams right away since these are all very competitive exams.

    Re: Can I apply for clerical posts at the age of 17 years?

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible to apply for Clerical Recruitment examinations for Banks because to apply for Bank Clerical Examination, you have to attained the age of 18 years.

    Minimum age required to apply for Bank Examination is 18 years and your age should not be more than 28 years, Upper age relaxation is applicable for SC/ST/OBC Candidates.

    But Very few banks wants the candidates between the age of 20 to 25 years (For Punjab National Bank and Other Private Banks).

    To apply for Bank Clerical Recruitment Examinations you have to complete your 12Th examination.

    But If you have completed your 10Th examination with Minimum 60% Marks, then you are eligible to apply for IBPS Clerical Recruitment examination, IBPS Stands for Institute of Banking and Personnel Selection and it is Conducts the Common Written examination, This is Only conducts the Written examination and provide you the Score card and with the help of Score card, you can apply for 19 Nationalized banks. The list of Banks is availiable in the IBPS Notification, So you can checked previously Notification of Clerical examination.

    But you have to attained the age of 18 years (Which is Mandatory).

    So, please apply for this examination when you have attained the age of 18 Years.

    For SBI Bank Recruitment examination, you have to complete your 12Th examination with Minimum 60% Marks and your age should between 18 to 28 Years.

    The selection is Based on Written test and Personal Interview.

    But, I Suggest you to prepare well for the IBPS Examination because if you have scored good marks in IBPS then you are eligible for Interview of 19 Nationalized Banks. The score card of IBPS is valid only for 1 years. So please prepare well for the examination and for complete Information check the Given Notification ::

    Yes off course you can apply for clerical posts at the age of 17.There are many clerical posts available in various organisations and all such positions are open to you
    after completing your 10th or higher secondary as this is usually the minimum qualification that is required for such positions in any organisations.
    There are many such organisations where you can work at this position- for example banking organisations, financial institutions, Professional firms,
    management consultancy firms, etc.All such organisations open a large number of vacancies every year and you can apply to any such organisation depending on
    your interests and convenience.

    Hello friend !!

    It is good to see your eagerness in getting placed in the Govt Sectors.

    As you have selected the course in Clerical Post, your age will not support for that field .
    I will provide you the exact details about its eligibility, educational qualifications, age criteria , etc which makes you to know about your interested field .

    I think you are aware that, all the clerical posts are conducted by an Institute called
    IBPS which stands for Institute of Banking Personnel Selection .



    This Institute has the capability of testing simultaneously as many as 1 million candidates in 2000 venues across 200 centers (cities) in one session.

    >> Your Nationality must be Indian or Nepal .

    >> For Bank PO, you must be a Graduate in any background .

    >> Your aggregate in the Graduation must be min of 50% .

    >> The criteria will be same for Bank PO also i.e 18 years to 28 years .

    So as per this criteria, you are neither eligible for Bank Clerical Examinations nor Bank PO Examination .

    As you are very much interested in the Clerical Post, first complete your Intermediate with a good percentage .
    Attain a min age of 18 years and then register for IBPS Clerical Post.

    You can register through the official website of IBPS :- www.ibps.in

    Before cracking the Examination, prepare yourself as best as you can .
    The posting through IBPS will be depending on the merit of this Entrance Examination .

    Hi Friend ,

    No, you can't apply for Clerical posts at the age of 17 years, as minimum age required to apply for Bank Examination is 18 years and your age should not be more than 28 years, Upper age relaxation is applicable for SC/ST/OBC Candidates.

    To apply for Bank Clerical Recruitment Examinations you have to complete your at the least 10th class Examination with Minimum 60% Marks, Also if you have completed your 10+2 Examination with 50% marks then you are eligible to apply for IBPS Clerical Recruitment examination.


    As You see you cant apply for IBPS CWE-Clerical Exam till you have attained the age of 18 years ,so complete your High school , and when you meet the neceaary requirement the apply for it .

    IBPS (Institute of Banking and Personnel Selection) Conducts the Common Written examination (CWE). You get a score card that has validity for 1year .Though only 18 Nationalized banks all over India Accept the score-card Provided by IBPS.


    For SBI Bank Recruitment examination, you have to complete your 12Th examination with Minimum 60% Marks and your age should between 18 to 28 Years.

    The selection is Based on Written test and Personal Interview.

    Good Luck!!!

    You can't go for bank clerk posts at the age of 17years. You should have attained at least 18 years of age when the time of writing the clerk exams. So, as of now you cant apply for the bank clerks posts. You have to wait one more year.

    And you must have 10th/inter with more than 65% aggregate then only you will be eligible. You can go for the clerk posts even after completing the graduation with 60% or more.

    Clerk exam eligibility for the banks :

    You must have min.60% in tenth or you should have min.55% in your Inter OR pass in degree from any recognized University of India.

    Age limits :

    Between 18 to 28 years. Upper age limits are there.

    For SC/ST its 5 years
    For OBC its 3 years
    For PwD candidates its 10 years
    For Ex-servicemen its 5 years

    Exam pattern for Clerks:




    Important :

    You can take bank clerk test in Hindi/English language.

    Clerical posts recruitment procedure:
    • Written Exam and
    • Interview

    Each question carries one mark and there is negative (1/4) marking. After Exam, bank will be given a scorecard if you are qualified in CWE.It will be valid for one year from the date of issue of the scorecards.

    You can't go for bank clerk posts at the age of 17years. You should have attained at least 18 years of age when the time of writing the clerk exams. So, as of now you cant apply for the bank clerks posts. You have to wait one more year.

    And you must have 10th/inter with more than 65% aggregate then only you will be eligible. You can go for the clerk posts even after completing the graduation with 60% or more.

    Clerk exam eligibility for the banks :

    You must have min.60% in tenth or you should have min.55% in your Inter OR pass in degree from any recognized University of India.

    Age limits :

    Between 18 to 28 years. Upper age limits are there.

    For PwD candidates its 10 years

    I think you cannot apply for the clerical exam in age of 17……..
    Eligibility for the clerical exams:
    One should have 12th class and in some banks they should required graduation after that you can apply for the clerical exam.
    And one should also have minimum 50% marks in 12th or ion graduation also.
    And age should be 21 years and above…
    So you are not eligible to apply for the clerical exams.
    After graduation you can apply for the clerical exams and also other exams…..

    Re: Can I apply for clerical posts at the age of 17 years?

    Sorry to say, but you can not apply for banks as Bank Clerk Recruitment examinations are not eligible to apply for the exam, you have attained the age of 18.
    But very few Bank Punjab National Bank and other private banks to candidates between the ages of 20 to 25 years.
    Recruitment to apply for bank exams to complete their 12 th exam.
    With minimum 60% marks but if you have completed the 10th test, you are eligible to apply for IBPS Recruitment Examination, IBPS ibps stands for and conducted the written test, it The list of banks in the availiable IBPS notification, so you can check the clerical exam notification.
    But you have attained the age of 18 (which is mandatory).
    So, to apply this test when you have attained the age of 18.
    SBI Bank recruitment exam, you minimum 60% marks and should be between the ages of 18 to 28 years with his 12 th test is complete.
    Based on the written test and personal interview.
    However, I suggest you prepare for the exam for IBPS well because you have earned good marks in IBPS, you are eligible to interview 19 nationalized banks. IBPS of the score card is only valid for 1 year. Prepare well for the exam.
    But for the IBPS clerk at the age of 17 can apply for the exam, you must be at least 18 years old ....
    Ibps
    They are mainly
    Clerk and PO jobs.
