IBPS Result and IBPS Score card

IBPS CWE results are published online at their official website. All candidates who appear for the CWE will be able to check their status once the results are out. IBPS applies a cut-off method to determine the final score known as the TWSS (Total Weighted Standardized Scores). A scorecard is issued to the candidates who secure the minimum TWSS defined by IBPS, and qualifying marks in each subject of the examination. Successful candidates in the CWE who meet the eligibility criteria will be called for a common interview (CI).
Common Interview

In 2012, IBPS announced that the participating banks would no longer conduct separate interviews for successful candidates those who have appeared in the CWE. Instead of that, IBPS itself will arrange a common interview (CI) for them at different locations and will prepare a final merit list which will be used to recruit them directly to the banking positions reported during the validity of their score card. That simply means that IBPS now reserves the complete control over recruiting and placing professionals to almost all public sector banks in India.
