What is IBPS Common Written Exam?
As the name specifies IBPS Common Written Exam is a Common Exam that is conducted by IBPS on the behalf of participating banks. It is worth mentioning here that in May, 2011 Government of India had approved the IBPS for conducting the recruitment exams on the behalf of banks. In this scheme of examination, IBPS invites online applications from the eligible candidates. After receiving applications, IBPS conducts a Common Written Exam (CWE). The Successful students in the CWE are then issued scorecards, based on which they can apply for Jobs in Public Sector banks.
