Indian Bank’s Association has decided to introduce a system of common entrance for selection of candidates to clerical cadre, entry level officer and specialist officer in 19 public sector banks.

The Common Written Examination (CWE) for initial short listing of candidates will be conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) twice a year. IBPS will issue a notification each time regarding minimum educational qualification, age, application fee and process, tentative date of examination, structure of examination, and issuance of call letters.

The candidates appearing for the examination will be issued a score card by IBPS which will be valid for one year from the date of issue. Each of the participating bank will then carry out its selection process and eligible applicants with valid score cards can apply for the group discussion, interview etc as decided by the bank.

The banks participating in the CWE process are Allahabad Bank, Andhra Bank, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Bank of Maharashtra, Canara Bank, Central Bank of India, Corporation Bank, Dena Bank, Indian Bank, Indian Overseas Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce, Punjab National Bank, Punjab and Sind Bank, Syndicate Bank, Union Bank of India, United Bank of India, UCO Bank, and Vijaya Bank.

State Bank of India and its associate banks do not come under this process  and will conduct separate tests as and when required. The new pattern of entrance exam will not only make the bank recruitment faster, but will also make it hassle free.
