Lakhs of bank exam aspirants have been eagerly waiting for SBI PO 2020 Notification. Last year, SBI PO Notification was out on April 1, 2019, and it’s most likely because of coronavirus pandemic that this notification isn’t out yet. We know that most of y0u are looking for an answer to the question whether SBI PO 2020 Notification will come this year and when would SBI PO 2020 exam take place? In this article, we would answer this and some other questions related to SBI PO 2020 Notification:
- Will SBI PO 2020 exam take place this year?
Yes. We believe SBI would conduct the SBI PO exam this year. The bank releases SBI PO notification and conducts SBI PO exam every year. The only reason that we have not yet heard anything from SBI about the SBI PO 2020 Notification is due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There is no reason to believe that once things get normal, SBI would not come up with SBI PO 2020 notification for the 2020 exam.
- When would SBI PO 2020 Exam be held?
SBI for the last 7-8 years has been conducting the exam in May/June/July, barring the year 2018 when the exam took place in April itself. This year the SBI PO 2020 exam is definitely not going to take place during its usual timeline due to the ongoing healthcare emergency. Even many exams like SBI Clerk Mains, RBI Assistant Mains etc which were scheduled to take place have been indefinitely postponed.
India has not been impacted as gravely as many western countries and Government is expected to relax the lockdown in next few weeks. But we believe the social distancing norms would continue for few more months. So, as per us a national level exam like SBI PO in which lakhs of aspirants appear cannot take place till stringent Social Distancing norms are in place. If we have to speculate, then we can expect the exams to start taking place after 2-3 months from when the lockdown is completely lifted. So, if the lockdown is completely lifted on May 17, 2020, we can expect exams to start taking place from August/September. Please note that this is pure speculation from our end and not backed by any official source.
- When can we expect SBI PO 2020 notification to be released?
SBI usually releases SBI PO 2020 notification in the month of April every year, barring 2018 when it was released in the month of February itself. However, there has never been an instance of SBI PO notification being released after April. The reason why SBI PO 2020 notification has not been released till now is because of the ongoing medical emergencies and no other reason apart from that. We expect SBI PO 2020 notification to be released within a few weeks after the situation starts getting normal. Assuming that there is a complete lockdown is lifted on May 17, we can expect the SBI PO 2020 notification to be released within a few weeks i.e. by end of June or early July. Again, we would like to give a disclaimer that this is a speculation based on the assumption that the situation starts normalising in May.
- What can the aspirants do till the time SBI PO 2020 notification is not released?
Prepare. Prepare. Prepare.
Aspirants should not waste any time as the competition for banking exams especially SBI PO is a cut-throat one. Lakhs of aspirants aim for 2,000 odd vacancies. Since, almost all the bank and insurance exams in India are conducted by IBPS, we can assume that there would be a lot of exams like SBI PO 2020, IBPS RRB 2020, IBPS PO 2020, IBPS Clerk 2020, RBI Grade B 2020 etc with a shorter time gap amongst each other. Another possibility is that the time gap between the date of release of SBI PO 2020 notification release date and the date of SBI PO 2020 Prelims exam can be less than the usual 7-8 weeks time. Therefore, we would advise all the aspirants to start preparing for SBI PO 2020 and other bank exams from now itself.
In the course of preparation the importance of mock tests cannot be undermined. It is important that aspirants take ample number of mock tests as the mock tests simulate the real exam like scenario.
