The SBI PO prelims will comprise three sections-English languages, Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning Ability. The exam will carry a total of 100 marks and candidates will be allowed 1 hour (20 minutes for each section) for the exam.


Candidates numbering 10 times the numbers of vacancies (approx.) in each category will be shortlisted for Main Examination from the top of above merit list,” reads the notification.
