In the just announced, IBPS Specialist Officers Exam Results 2012, a little over 5 % students have managed to qualify for the next round.Earlier the IBPS had conducted the Specialist Officers Exam on 11th March, 2012 in which approximately 3 lakh students appeared for the exam and only 16,268 candidates have been declared as successful.These successful students will now apply for Specialist Officers Jobs in Public Sector banks

The Specialist Officers Exam was conducted for different fields such as IT Officers, Agriculture Field Officers, Technical Officers, Law Officers, HR/ Personnel Officers, Marketing Officers, Rajbhasha Officers etc

Only 5 % students Passed

The pass percentage of students for IBPS Specialist Officers Exam is relatively poor when compared to Other IBPS Exams like that of Probationary Officers and Clerk.In the IBPS PO Exam, 10 % students have managed to qualify for the next round, and in the IBPS Clerk exam, 17 % students have been declared as successful. The main reason for such a Lower percentage is the lesser number of Specialist Officers vacancies in the Public Sector banks.

  1. respected sir..
    For agriculture specialist officer post fisheries students are also applying. though fisheries is allied sector but it is the important part of agriculture and many of the farmers were engaged in it as it gives subsidiary income to them. In banks agriculture paper all questions are related to agriculture and fisheries students can not be answers all questions as they studying only fisheries. So for qualifying this exam at list 20% questions from fisheries subject must be asked or there is provision of separate fisheries paper for this students.
