Exam Specifics of SBI PO 2017
- BILINGUAL TEST: Every section (except English Language) will be available in English as well as Hindi. So if you are more comfortable with Hindi, several types of questions might be easier to attempt in Hindi, than in English.
- NEGATIVE MARKING: Each wrong answer takes a quarter of the marks assigned to that question from your total. The negative marking is small enough that if you are reasonably sure of an answer, you can take a chance and mark it. But be careful not to overdo it with guesses. Your accuracy could be the difference between selection and disqualification.
- CUT-OFFS: Each section has an individual cut-off. Besides this, there is also an overall cut off decided by the SBI that you need to cross to move to the next round.
SBI PO Prelims 2017 Selection Process

The preliminary examination will not be added for the selection and only the marks obtained in main examination, both in objective test and descriptive test will be added to the marks obtained in GE and interview for preparation of the final merit list.
