Bank of Baroda PO Vacancy 2021

For selecting the eligible candidates towards the officer cadre, the BOB chooses two ways, one through the IBPS common test and the other way is through recruiting directly from their PG Certificate course. While the first selection has lots of competition, the latter have comparatively few applicants.
The IBPS PO recruitment has two stages of online test, followed by the interview for the screening, and candidates have the option to choose any of the participating banks to join. If the candidates choose the second option or the PG course to join the bank, there is only one screening test, and based on the candidate’s performance in this they will be selected for the programme.
