    Which IBPS IT Officer exam to apply? Scale 1 or Scale 2?

    Hello Everyone,

    I am Sunil and i am an IT Professional with around 2.3 years of exp. in IT sector. But due to some family constraints i am preparing myself for the next IBPS IT OFFICER exam. But i have a concern.

    Should i apply for IT OFFICER SCALE 1 or 2? (Although IT OFFICER SCALE-2 requires 1 yr of exp and i have 2.3 but I heard from some1 that IT OFFICER SCALE-2 doesn't have much vacancies and even if we clear the written they prefer candidates from banking sector only at the time of interview) Are the rumors true?

    I also would like to inform that i belong to SC category(will this help me?).

    And, As we know IT OFFICER SCALE -1 has more vacancies compatibly to SCALE-2 but there is a ransom difference between the SALARY AMOUNT. So i am kind of diverted towards SCALE -2 but quite confused due to all these rumors.

    So please friends help and guide me towards the right path.

    An immediate reply would be much appreciable.

    Thanks friends.

    According to your qualification and experience you need to choose which scale to apply for the specialist officer.
    If you are going to apply for the IT officer scale 1 examination then you need to fulfil these eligiblity criteria for the same.
    Educational qualification is as follows.
    Graduation in
    COMPUTER SCIENCE/
    COMPUTER APPLICATION/
    INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY/
    ELECTRONICS/
    ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATION/
    ELECTRONICS AND INSTRUMENTATION.
    OR
    Post graduation in
    COMPUTER SCIENCE/
    COMPUTER APPLICATION/
    INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY/
    ELECTRONICS/
    ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATION/
    ELECTRONICS AND INSTRUMENTATION.
    OR
    graduate in any discipline from a recognised university having passed DOEACC B level.
    If you like to apply for the scale 2 IT officer then there is a difference in the age limit and experience.
    Your age needs to be 21 to 40 years for the same.
    you must have 1 years of experience in the IT sector to apply for the same.
    according to salary you can apply for the scale 2 officer if you have experience.
    Or you need to go for the scale 1 officer.
