  1. How can you be so sure that 150 marks will be a sureity for post ibps era even 180/200 cant assure a bank job

  2. IBPS is not showing your actual marks. It is total weighted score. For PO exams, they are adding 30 to 40 marks and for clerk 10 to 20 marks are being added. I mentioned 150 after looking at real marks secured by candidates in previous exam system and the cut off marks displayed by SBI & several banks before and also information got through RTI.

  3. IBPS conducting exams for 250 marks but not 200, except RRB's.
