  1. Hi mam,
    Durai Raj I am DURAI RAJ from CHENNAI. I have a important question for you. I read( that ' Last time IBPS rolled back the criteria which came with the notification since IBPS had given no clues before about the change in minimum educational qualification and age limit. We expect that, for the upcoming IBPS PO/MT recruitment 2014-15, there would not be any rolling back, it will be the same as the past.' and ' Last time IBPS reversed back the minimum qualification and age limit from 60%, 20-28 respectively to the old ones for general and all other category PO/MT candidates. But in the upcoming recruitment for the year 2014, there will not be any chance that IBPS will hold the old criteria.'. What did you say mam I am in big confusion as I am preparing for the upcoming ibps poIV 2014 exam please guide me mam what can I do whether i have to prepare for the next ibps exam or I have to quit preparation. please guide me mam.
