PENALTY FOR WRONG ANSWERS
There will be penalty for wrong answers marked in the Objective Tests. For each
question for which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate one fourth or 0.25 of
the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty to arrive at corrected
score. If for any question a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as
wrong even if one of the given answers happens to be right and 0.25 of the marks
assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty. If a question is left blank, i.e. no
answer is marked by the candidate, there will be no penalty for that question.
IBPS STANDARDIZED SCORES
(i) The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates in different sessions will
first be normalized using equipercentile method.

to the nearest integer, i.e. if fraction is 0.50 or more, it will be rounded off to next
IBPS Clerks CUTOFF SCORE
Each candidate will have to secure a minimum standard score in each of the tests as well
as on the Total Weighted Standard Score to be called for interview. The cut-off points to
qualify in each of the tests will be decided based on the average (Average – ¼ Standard
Deviation for General category candidates and Average – ¾ Standard Deviation for
Reserved Category candidates). Mere passing in individual tests may not be sufficient
as candidates should also score sufficiently high on Total in order of merit to be called
for interview. A candidate should qualify both in the CWE and interview for being
considered for appointment in vacancies announced and anticipated by Participating
