The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has begun inviting application from aspiring bank clerks for the Common Written Examination (CWE-IV) 2014.

The first IBPS Clerk Exam (CWE-I) in 2011 saw over 40 lakh candidates apply.
With only graduates being allowed to apply from CWE-II in 2012 the numbers dropped down signficantly, but there were still 12 lakh candidates fighting it out for the over 30000 vacant posts in 2013.
This year too the exams are expected to fill over 30000 vacancies.
If last year's numbers are anything to go by, this gives candidates a one in 40 chance of qualifying.
So, buck up and prepare well.
