SBI PO Eligibility Criteria – Eligibility Norms Explained

In this post I am going to explain about SBI PO Eligibility Criteria. SBI PO notification is likely to be announced in this year and the notification may come shortly.

In the last post I have explained you about SBI PO Syllabus as well as also about cut off for SBI PO. I have received many queries from visitors about explaining eligibility norms of SBI PO.

This article is based on the eligibility criteria given in the various previous notifications of SBI PO and the eligibility criteria explained here are based on the previous year notification. It is very much likely that the eligibility criteria will remain the same for this year also. There are two main SBI PO Eligibility Criteria on which the candidates remain confused. These two criteria are Age and Qualification requirement. In this post we are explaining about these two aspects in details.

SBI PO Eligibility Criteria

Essential Academic Qualifications for SBI PO

To be eligible for SBI PO minimum qualification required is graduation in any discipline from a recognized University or any equivalent qualification recognized as such by the Central Government.

Those who are in the Final year/Semester of their Graduation may also apply provisionally, subject to the condition that, if called for interview, they will have to produce proof of having passed the graduation examination on or before the specific date which will be mentioned in the notification.

Candidates having integrated dual degree (IDD) certificate should ensure that the date of passing the IDD is on or before the specific date which will be mentioned in the notification.

Clarification: Based on the above eligibility criteria it can be said that there is no percentage bar in SBI PO and those who are in the final year of graduation may also apply subject to the condition that, if called for interview, they will have to produce proof of having passed the graduation examination on or before the date which will be provided in the notification.

Age Limit

Not below 21 years and not above 30 years.

Age Relaxations as per the norms.

Therefore before applying for SBI PO one must ensure his or her eligibility criteria based on the above two parameters.

If you have any confusion about SBI PO Eligibility Criteria you may also post your queries which will be replied promptly.
