IBPS Exam Calendar 2021-22: Check IBPS Exam Dates


The Institute of Banking Personnel Selection or commonly referred to as ‘IBPS’, annually releases vacancies for various positions in all the rural and commercial banks, except a few banks which choose to conduct their recruitment process. IBPS conducts examinations for the posts of both ‘Officers’& ‘Clerks’. Briefly, we know these posts as IBPS PO (Probationary Officer), IBPS SO (Specialist Officer), IBPS Clerk, IBPS RRB PO (Scale 1,2 & 3), and IBPS RRB Office Assistant (Clerk).
IBPS has always been diligent and punctual with its announcements and notifications. Even during the ongoing pandemic, it has continued its tradition. This year too, the tentative IBPS calendar has been released well in time. The exam calendar mentions the tentative dates that pertain to the common recruitment process (CRP) of RRBs (Regional Rural Banks) for all scales (1,2 &3) & of all other commercial banks (PSBs).

IBPS Exam 2021: Preparation Strategy

IBPS released a good number of vacancies last year and therefore we can expect a similar number of vacancies this time too. On a positive note, no matter what the number of vacancies are, you have to fight for just ‘one’ seat. Your focus needs to be on that one vacancy that might be for you. One of the most important steps in your preparation is practicing mock tests which will prove quite useful even the day you sit for the examination. Mock tests are a simulation of actual online exam experience, thus proving helpful in decreasing the final day’s nervousness. ixamBee provides a fair chance to all of the aspirants by providing ‘free mock tests.’
