IBPS CWE CLERK-VII Official Notification released - Apply Now..!

While you are busy in preparing for IBPS PO and IBPS RRB Officer / Assistant exams the Giant of the Bank Exam Recruitment Portals called IBPS has released its next Recruitment Notification for Clerical Cadre Officers – IBPS CWE CLERKS-VII.

The surprise is that the number of vacancies for Tamilnadu, Puducherry and Himachal Pradesh to be filled by this recruitment process has been increased from last year notification. IBPS Clerk Vacancies for all the other states have been decreased as per the requirement. 

The number of vacancies to be filled has been recorded as 9000 (Pan India), which is 54% less than the last year IBPS Clerk Recruitment (2016) Notification. So, it is the proof that the competition between the aspirants will be higher than expected.

The quite good news is that the students who have registered for IBPS PO and IBPS RRB Exams may don’t have to pay any specific attention to this IBPS Clerk recruitment 2017 because it implies the same exam pattern of the IBPS PO Examination. When considering the difficulty level of the exam, IBPS CWE CLERKS-VII Exam seems less-rated compared with IBPS PO Exams. That is the difficulty meter is oscillating between Moderate to tough.

As announced earlier IBPS Clerk Recruitment will not have a Personal Interview process that will be the added advantage to the candidates applying for this recruitment.
