BOOKS FOR IBPS CWE Specialist Officers Exam:

There will be penalty for wrong answers marked in the Objective Tests. For each question for
which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate one fourth or 0.25 of the marks assigned
to that question will be deducted as penalty to arrive at corrected score. If for any question a
candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as wrong even if one of the given answers
happens to be right and there will be the same penalty of 0.25 of the marks assigned to that
question deducted as penalty. If a question is left blank, i.e. no answer is given by the candidate,
there will be no penalty for that question. 6

The corrected scores obtained by each of the candidates will further be converted into
standardized scores following Linear Conversion Method.( If the total score for a test is in fraction,
the marks obtained will be rounded off to the nearest integer, i.e. if fraction exceeds by 0.50 or
more, it will be rounded off to next higher integer.)

Each candidate will have to secure a minimum standardized score in each of the tests to qualify in
the written examination and to be considered for vacancies in the participating banks. The cut-off
points will be decided based on the average (Average – ¼ Standard Deviation for General
category candidates and Average – ¾ Standard Deviation for Reserved Category candidates).

IBPS will print the Score Cards for each of the qualifying candidates only and will send the same
by Registered/ Speed post to each candidate at the correspondence address specified in his/ her
