    Re: Date of Bank PO entrance exam? What is the age limit and qualification required? Will there be descriptive questions?

    still common exam for various positions in bank is in process.we may expect on October or September.
    for bank po exam age limit is 21-30 years.qualification should be any bachelors degree.yes for po exam there will be descriptive questions, questions can be asked are socio economic situations of India,economic environment of India, questions on different banking services.
    descriptive test is to check your analytical skills,responsiveness on scio economic situations. they ask your opinion and your role.for example if they ask what are the measures you take to increase the market share of the bank etc.
    so be prepared in this view.

    Bank probational officer is one of the most desired position for all those students who aspire
    to get a government job.This is not one of the satisfactorily paid profession but also provides a individual
    job satisfaction and social reputation.There are broadly two classifications of the banking probational officer
    examination.These can be explained as follows:

    1)State bank of India probational officer-
    This is a option which can be considered by you.If you are applying from a general category, you require at least
    60% aggregate percentage in graduation.As far as subjective questions are concerned subjective questions are asked
    in this examination and you should prepare well for them.

    2)Common written exams-
    This is other option which can be considered by you.You should prepare well for the common
    written test as only if you clear this exam, you would be allowed to appear for the
    personal interview process.You would be eligible to appear for the personal interview of a number of banks
    if you scored well in the written exam.As far as the minimum percentage is concerned, you would
    be required to have at least 50% aggregate in graduation.There are no descriptive questions in this
    examination.
