As the Nationalized banks came into the picture in India in the year 1969. A small body called PSS was formed to recruiting in the selection testing method. The job of this body was to find out proficient candidates for various bank jobs. Later PSS was named IBPS in 1984. Hence IBPS or (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) is an autonomous body that conducts various banking exams for public sector banks. The exams IBPS conducts are namely, PO/ MT, SO, Clerk, Officer Scale-I, RRB Office Assistant, Officer Scale-II and Scale-III. The name IBPS SO Exam suggests the exam for IBPS Specialist Officer.
