7 Reasons Why You Should Apply for IBPS RRB


Do you ever feel you’re lagging behind in your career because you don’t have a strong background in English? Have you quit your dream to work a government job because of the English section of the paper? Do you think government jobs are too competitive and you are unable to make your space in a sea of aspirants? Were you unable to crack a competitive exam in the past because the level of the exam was too tough? 

In case you have left your dream to work a government job behind you, it’s time to reawaken your dream and give it another chance. There is one government job where all the aforementioned problems do not apply. Moreover, wait for it, it is a banking job! 

The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has released its exam notification for Probationary Officers (PO/Scale 1) and Clerks (Office Assistant) for this year on June 7, 2021, for Regional Rural Banks (RRB). The applications are now open and there is no time to waste. If you are still not convinced, I have compiled seven reasons why you should give your dream job a second chance. 

7 Reasons Why You Should Not Miss The IBPS RRB PO/Clerk Exams 

  1. English is optional: Firstly, let’s remove the elephant in the room. The English language section of the paper is optional. You can opt for either English or Hindi. So, if you feel your background in English is lacking, you can choose Hindi for your language section. 
  2. Easy level of assessment
    Since the IBPS RRB openings are for PO and Clerical posts, the overall level of assessment ranges from easy to moderate. There is a Preliminary exam followed by a Mains paper if you clear the former. 
  3. No interview
    For the IBPS RRB Clerk exam, there are only two levels of assessment- Prelims and Mains. There is no interview.
  4. Proficiency in local language
    For PO and Clerk posts, candidates need to have studied the state’s local language only until Class 8 from a Government recognized Board or School. For candidates who do not meet this requirement, they will be given a period of 6 months to acquire this basic level of proficiency. 
  5. No Descriptive English paper
    There is no paper on Descriptive English in the IBPS RRB PO exam that is generally the main issue that discourages candidates from appearing for this exam. With the main thorn out of your way, the road to your dream job is as smooth as silk. 
  6. No sectional timing
    For the Clerk and PO exams, candidates are given a composite time of 45 minutes for the Prelims paper and 120 minutes for the Mains paper. There is no sectional division of time. This is why you can use the time you save in one section in another. Similarly, you can divide your time to work on the subjectively easier sections first and save the larger chunk of your time for the sections you feel will need more of your time. 
  7. 12,000+ vacancies
    This year, IBPS RRB has announced a total of 12,820 vacancies across all scales. Of which, 6827 openings are for IBPS RRB Clerk and 4658 openings for PO. All in all, there are more than 11,400+ job openings. Such a large number of vacancies is very rarely announced so you should make the most of this opportunity.
