Re: SBI PO Difficulty Level

The State bank of India (SBI) Probationary Officer is just as tough as the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) PO exam.

The only difference is the number of vacancies which get filled up through both these exams.

As IBPS PO has more number of vacancies the cut-offs are relatively lower than the SBI PO.

Or the cut-offs for the bank exams are directly proportional to the number of vacancies. More the vacancies, lesser the cut-off and the exam becomes easy and vice versa.
