As it is for the post of clerk, there will not be any interview round and the mains exam will be the final round for selection according to the final cut-off that will be released after the exam, depending on the vacancies.

The candidate needs to qualify for ‘prelims’ in order to be eligible to appear in the mains exam. IBPS CLERK PRELIMS exam is of qualifying nature and these marks will not matter in your final selection. It is just a step to move forward in the journey of becoming a clerk.
