The long form of IBPS is Institute of Banking Personnel Selection.
IBPS has got a facility which is capable enough to print over 1,00,000 data question booklets along with their Answer sheets per day. Also the IBPS can simultaneously conduct examination throughout India where it has successfully setup examination centers almost in every city.
In this way it has tested over 1 million candidates throughout India. As of now the IBPS has selected 79,236 candidates for various organizations apart from conducting examinations. So just look at this number of candidates who were being selected prior to the declaration of Common Written Exam of Probationary Officer in Sept. 2011. Hence, if we calculate the number of students who appeared for both Clerical and the Probationary Officer exams, IBPS has done a great job.
From students point of view it is now very easy to appear for examination as IBPS has the ability to conduct exam in every city of India. Prior to IBPS, It was necessary to attend the examinations which were only conducted in Metro cities.
