Here is an interview experience of Mr. Kaushik who is currently working as Clerk in Corporation bank.
IBPS Clerk II score: 115
I was asked questions from general topics such as banking terms, heads of financial firms & organizations.
If there is a panel member who is well aware of your home state they expect questions related to your location. I was asked lot about my state like famous spots near my town, local business trends, crops etc., to which I answered quite easily.
An official in the room asked me (in Gujarati) that ''If fishermen are well aware that fishing during monsoon is very dangerous why are they doing that”. I think she knew my home town is near the seashore & wanted to know if I am aware of my surroundings. I answered this easily.
Candidates who don’t belong to that particular state should put in efforts to gain knowledge about the state & its language.
It is also necessary to know little about the local political scene as I was asked to name the MLA of my district & governor of the state. So reading newspapers is necessary to stay alert on political affairs.
Commerce graduates must definitely know about accounting, type of accounts, balance sheet, share capital etc., as they were commonly asked to B.com candidates.
Do's & Don’ts:
- Once you enter the interview room, don’t forget to greet the panel. Say good morning or good afternoon according to the time of day.
- Don’t be in the mindset of “I have to answer all the questions”. If u don’t know the answer don’t panic. Simply say “I don’t know sir/madam”. They will ask another question.
- Remember to say ‘Thanks’ once you have completed the interview. It doesn’t matter whether you were able to answer all questions or not.
