The word PO stands for probationary officer. A person can join as a probationary officer only if they are at least a graduate. Also their age should be less than 30 years. So most of the banks the minimum age required is 20 years. For the banks under the State bank group the requirement the minimum required is 21 years. These candidates will need to clear the entrance exam, group discussion and also the interview round to be selected. As a probationary officer they will be trained in the various functions like cash management, loan management, investment management etc.

The exam pattern consists of reasoning ability, numerical ability, general socio economic & banking awareness, Computer awareness, English language etc.

You will have to pass in each of the objective tests....negative marking is also there for wrong answers...it is 1/4th of the marks allotted to that question which means that for 4 wrong answers 1 mark will be deducted.

This is the most common criteria and format of all bank PO exams...
