So the it seems that the selection is going to be in 3:1 ration i.e. for every 3 candidates in IBPS Clerk Interview , 2 will be rejected. But actual scenario will be a little different. Because out of every 100 students, around 15-20 will be selected in State Bank and its associate banks as clerks, 10-15 will be selected in IBPS PO and 5-10 candidates will not appear for the interview for various reasons. So out of each 100 candidates, approximately 65-70 candidates will attend the IBPS Clerk Interview .
