About the SBI PO Exam:

This Exam is conducted by the SBI as a pre-requisite for selection of personnel for Probationary Officer/ Management Trainee posts in the SBI and its associated Banks.

Career Path

The Probationary Officers will be on probation of two years during which they will be given intensive training. Towards end of their probation / training period, they will be subjected to a screening process. While those Officers who achieve the predetermined standards may be confirmed and given placement in the next higher grade i.e., Officer Middle Management Grade Scale II, others who qualify the test but fail to achieve the standards set for placement in Middle Management Grade Scale II, will be confirmed as Officer Junior Management Scale Grade I. The services of those Officers who fail to qualify in this process will be terminated.
