However I have collected details / opinions of various candidates on net as per following :

Details of CWE Marks
Maximum Standard Score : 50 (Reasoning / English Language / Quantitative Aptitude / Professional Knowledge )

No Marks for  : General Awareness (XX)

Total Weighted Standard Score (TWSS) : = Reasoning + Maths + 1/2 (English ) + 1.5 (  Professional Knowledge )

I got following information from a web site about calculation of score :

How Cut Off is Calculated in IBPS CWE for PO, Clerk and Specialist Officer

BPS Common Written Exam (CWE) for PO, Clerk, and Specialist Officer is nothing short of a watershed moment in the history of Indian Banking. The Common Exam has simplified the tedious and tough job of selecting candidates by following the Government norms by nationalized banks. It should be remembered here that nationalized banks can’t recruit candidate on ad-hoc basis like Private Banks do. They need to follow Government norms of reservation and providing equal opportunity to all. That is why recruiting officers and clerks used to be a tough job for these banks. But, not now as CWE has simplified the whole process.

Since this is a Common Written Exam for 19 nationalized banks among others the process of calculating minimum qualifying marks is not easy. Lots of students simply don’t understand the rationality behind their marks in their score card. However, one must remember here that arriving at a cut-off is not easy when the exam is being organized in more than one session. IBPS has devised two formulas for getting cut-off that is Standard Score and Total Weighted Score. The result of PO and Clerk is out and students can look into their score card to understand the rationality behind their marks.

Process for Calculating Standard Score in CWE
Standard Score is calculated by following these three procedures:

1. Corrected Score: This is the score obtained by a candidate in CWE. Corrected Score is nothing but deducting negative marks (if any) from the correct answers that an aspirant has given.

2. Equated Score: Since CWE is being organized in more than one session hence it is simply not possible to give different question papers of same difficulty level. This is a competitive exam where even one question can change the landscape for a candidate. Hence, Corrected Score obtained by a candidate is then moderated according to the difficulty level of the paper for that particular student. This moderated score is known as Equated Score. Remember that for a candidate Equated Score may be lower than Corrected Score, or may even go up by few marks than his actual Corrected Score. This process is very much needed to maintain a level playing field for all aspirants.

3. Final Standardized Score: The Equated Score obtained from the second procedure is then standardized by using a mathematical formula (Mean 25 and Standard Deviation 5). The Linear Transformation Method is used to arrive Final Standardized Score – minimum 0 and maximum 50. This is the score that aspirants see in their score card.

CWE result for PO and Clerk is out and aspirants can see their Standardized score in their score cards. Interestingly, the cut off in both CWE remained the same. For General Category students the cut off was 24 in all sections (120 minimum), and for others it was 21 in all sections (105 minimum).

Process for Calculating Total Weighted Standard (TWS) Score

TWS is calculated since one section may be more important for banks than other. IBPS has given out a simple formula for the calculation of TWS.
Total Weighted Score (TWS) = Final Standardized Score obtained in (Reasoning + Quantitative Aptitude + GA + Computer + ½ English Knowledge + ½ Descriptive Paper).
The descriptive paper of only those candidates who have crossed the barrier of minimum qualifying marks in their Final Standardized Score has been evaluated. Candidates who didn’t qualify may see null in the descriptive paper irrespective of their attempts.
Actually correct formula for Specialist officer is 

Total Weighted Score (TWS)  = Reasoning +  Quantitative Aptitude + 1/2 (English Language) + 1.5 (Professional Knowledge)


  1. because they have less than 24 number in each section and in case of sc/obc candidate need 21 in each section.

  2. एक लाइन शुद्ध ¨हदी नहीं जांच पाए मास्साब
    संदीप दुबे, इलाहाबाद माध्यमिक संस्कृत शिक्षा परिषद की कॉपियां जांचने में लगाए गए कई परीक्षक न तो संस्कृत वाक्यों का शुद्ध उच्चारण कर पा रहे हैं और न ही हिंदी ठीक से लिखना-पढ़ना जानते हैं। यह हकीकत सोमवार को जिला विद्यालय निरीक्षक के निरीक्षण में उजागर हुई, जब एक परीक्षक हिंदी की एक पंक्ति तक नहीं जांच पाए। एक अन्य परीक्षक संस्कृत की पंक्तियां पढ़ तक नहीं सके। परीक्षक को संस्कृत की पंक्ति का अर्थ बताने में पसीने छूटने गए। राजकीय इंटर कॉलेज स्थित मूल्यांकन केंद्र पर कॉपी जांच रहे कई परीक्षकों में सूक्तियों और कविताओं के अंतर के बारे में भी मतभेद रहे। गौरतलब है कि माध्यमिक संस्कृत शिक्षा परिषद की कॉपियों का मूल्यांकन 18 मई से शुरू है। जिला विद्यालय निरीक्षक महेंद्र कुमार सिंह ने सोमवार को राजकीय इंटर कॉलेज स्थित मूल्यांकन केंद्र का निरीक्षण किया। उन्होंने पूर्व मध्यमा की कॉपी जांच रहे एक परीक्षक की जांची कॉपी देखी। परीक्षक ने कॉपी में लिखी अशुद्ध हिंदी को जांचकर नंबर दे दिए थे। डीआइओएस ने परीक्षक को तत्काल मूल्यांकन कार्य से हटाने का निर्देश दिया। इस दौरान एक कक्ष में उत्तर प्रदेश माध्यमिक शिक्षा परिषद की इंटरमीडिएट की कॉपी पर दिए गए नंबरों के जोड़ में गड़बड़ी पाई गई। कॉपी जांच रही तीन शिक्षिकाओं ने उस कॉपी में दिए गए नंबरों का जोड़ अलग-अलग बताया। डीआइओएस ने मूल्यांकन के समय एवार्ड ब्लैंक साफ-साफ भरने का निर्देश दिया। कक्ष संख्या 17 में कॉपी जांच रही एक शिक्षिका उत्तर मध्यमा द्वितीय प्रश्नपत्र में दिए गए एक सवाल को स्पष्ट पढ़ नहीं सकी। इस बीच मूल्यांकन कर रहीं अन्य शिक्षिकाएं मौका पाकर कमरे से बाहर निकल गई। शिक्षिका ने पूछताछ में अपनी शैक्षिक योग्यता एमए, बीएड, आचार्य बताई। शिक्षिका के प्रपत्रों की जांच में आचार्य उपाधि का प्रमाणपत्र नदारद मिला। इसी बीच जांच स्थल पर पहुंचे उप प्रधानाचार्य ने शिक्षिका का परिचय एक विद्यालय के प्राचार्य की बेटी के रूप में दिया। निरीक्षण के दौरान विद्यालय के प्रधानाध्यापक और एक उप प्रधान परीक्षक भी अनुपस्थित मिले। इन सभी से स्पष्टीकरण देने को कहा गया है।

  13. @ blog editor महोदय, मेरा रिजल्ट पास दिखा रहा है. इसके कट ऑफ की जानकारी कहा से मिलेगी और क्या interview के लिए बुलाये जाने के चांस हैं???? IBPS में AGRICULTURE FIELD OFFICER (SCALE-I)को पहली बार शामिल किया गया है. वैसे मैंने भी टी० ई० टी० परीक्षा पास की है और मेरे प्राथमिक स्तर पर 129 अंक और उच्च प्राथमिक स्तर पर 114 अंक हैं. मेरे अकेडमिक अंक 241.28 हैं और मैं सामान्य विज्ञानं वर्ग से हूँ. क्या जून महीने तक में भर्ती शुरू होने की संभावनाएं है और मेरिट की प्रकार बनने की अधिक संभावना है????
