Number of candidates appeared in IBPS PO / Clerk 2015


The total number of candidates registered for various IBPS exam for year 2014-2015 is 1.5 Crore (150 Lakh candidates). These number are combined for both PO vacancy and Clerk vacancy. The above data is taken from IBPS website. 

To guess the number of candidate appeared in IBPS clerk and IBPS PO vacancy,  we considered that roughly the number of candidates for clerk post is double than number of candidate for PO vacancy. (Below are the only expected data, actual data may be different) So roughly, you can say that

50 Lakh candidate registered in IBPS for PO vacancy in year 2015.

1 Crore (100 Lakh) candidate registered in IBPS for Clerk vacancy in IBPS in year 2015. 

Ideally all registered candidate will not appear in exam at all. Only around 60 % of candidate get appeared in most of the competitive exam. So you can roughly say that

In  IBPS CWE (Common  Written Exam) first stage

30 Lakh candidates appeared in IBPS exam – pre (CWE first stage) for PO vacancy in year 2015.

60 Lakh candidate appeared in IBPS exam – pre (CWE first stage) for clerk vacancy in IBPS in year 2015.

In Pre exam only around 2 Lakh candidate get Qualified in IBPS pre exam (CWE first stage) for PO vacancy.

In Pre exam only around 4 Lakh candidate get Qualified in IBPS pre exam (CWE first stage) for Clerk  vacancy.

So only above number (it is only guess, may not be actual) of candidates appeared in IBPS main exam for PO and Clerk.
