• The written test of SBI PO was held on 28.04.2013. Now, SBI has released the list of successful candidates. (Unlike UPSC which takes months to declare any result.)
  • The roll numbers of successful candidates, available on in this PDF (click me to Download)
  • Congratulations to those who passed.
  • Those who could not make it in the list: there is more to life than just one exam so, don’t be a Devdas, prepare for the next competition exam and or whatever other career backup plans that you have.
  • 18th June 2013: from this day, successful candidates can download their Call Letter and Bio-data Format.
  • 3rd July 2013: from this day, The Phase II (Group discussion and personal interview) will start.

Importance of GDPI?

As per notification,

  • your written marks (out of 250) are converted to out of 75
  • and marks secured in Group Discussion & Interview (out of 50 marks maximum) are converted to out of 25.
  • The final merit list is arrived at after aggregating converted marks of Written Test and Group Discussion & Interview out of 100 for each category.
  • =As we can see, Written weightage =3/4th and GDPI weightage is just 1/4th.

But ^that should not lead to any laziness on GDPI preparation because notification further says:

  • The qualifying marks in Group Discussion & Interview will be as decided by the Bank.
  • The candidates will have to qualify both in Phase-I and Phase-II separately.
