IBPS bank examinations are one of the toughest bank exams to crack. Every year IBPS (Institute of Banking) conducts examination for different posts and numerous candidates apply every year and only a few of them are getting selected. Different exams have different difficulty levels. It is very difficult to say which one is more difficult because the difficulty level is judged on different parameters.
The questions asked in IBPS Clerk exam are of basic nature and require less calculation as compared to IBPS PO exam. In English section, the comprehension part is simple and easy to understand and the reasoning questions are easy as compared to PO exam.
The vacancy in Clerical are state wise and in PO it is all India basis. There is a criterion of the local language in clerk exam that is if you don’t know the local language of the state you cannot apply for that state but in IBPS PO no such condition is there. So the number of vacancy in IBPS PO is more than of IBPS clerk.
The cut off for IBPS PO is much lower than IBPS Clerk but it takes equal effort to prepare for both the examinations. Because in the year 2016 the cutoff for IBPS PO was 76 out of 200 questions, whereas for IBPS clerk (Himachal Pradesh) the cutoff was 66.50 out of 100.
The level of IBPS clerk is much lower as compare to IBPS PO but it takes equal effort to prepare for both the examination as the syllabus is almost same for both the examination.
If someone says “it is easier to get a job in IBPS clerk than IBPS PO”, the statement is completely false because most of the candidates who join as a clerk are those who didn’t clear the PO exam.
