Below we are giving the calculation procedure for the interview section of the IBPS examination 2017:
- In the IBPS the score of any particular candidate can be calculated and then it is normalised with the help of the equi-percentile method and then this score is taken on the normal scale.
- All these are done because of the difficulty level in the examination of IBPS in the different sessions.
- After calculating all these things the 80% weightage is given to the common written normalized score and then the remaining 20% weightage is given to the interview that is out of 100 the score it is calculated.
- For better explanation, we will give you the example. So let us consider an example, in the written examination consider a candidate scored about 120 out of 200 and then this score normalized using the equipercentile method after this procedure the marks obtained are 117. As it is 80% weightage based on the score it is 46.8.
- This is how the common written examination score is calculated.
- This particular candidate who got the score of 46.8 in the written examination and his performance in the interview is only average and out of 100 if e got the marks of 50 then as we know the 20% weightage then this candidate can get the score of only 10 marks in the interview section.
- So by adding the written examination score and the interview score, the complete score will be about 46.5+10=56.5. So 56.5 is the total score of this particular candidate.
- This score includes the mains examination score and the interview score.
- This is how the IBPS interview score is calculated.
