IBPS Specialist Exam minimum score final
As you know, for IBPS specialist recruitment, there are 11 cadres and the minimum  score for each is reported in post-wise. NA is given when no one is fit for a placement. Two rules applicable to the minimum eligible score in IBPS exams are given below.

1. When a reserved candidate secures a score in the general merit range, he/she will be included in the General category and vacancies for reserved will remain intact. For example: if 20% of the seats are reserved candidates and if one of them gets a score around 70 for IBPS specialist exam, it is only going to affect the available opportunities for General applicants.

2. When two candidates acquire the same combined score, the one who is older in age will be given preference for selection.
