Stages of SBI CBO

- Objective Test held online
- Descriptive Test
- Final Interview
Candidates must pass both an online written exam and an interview to be considered for the position. Objective and descriptive exam scores, combined with the interview scores, will construct/constitute the final merit list.
Online Written Test and Interview results will be provided a weightage of 75:25 to create the ultimate merit list.

Furthermore, the bank has the right to alter the shortlisting of the parameters at any time and will inform the applicants of any changes.
