Every year, the State Bank of India (SBI) holds a national SBI Clerk exam to hire applicants for Junior Associates (Customer Support and Sales) positions at its many branches around the country. SBI Clerk is one of the most popular bank exams today, with thousands of applicants applying every year. This exam consists of three phases and is administered as an online computer-based test:
- Preliminary examination

The preliminary examination is a one-hour computer-based test with 100 points divided into three sections. The mains examination, which is the second stage of the examination, is broken into four parts and carries a total of 200 marks. Only those who pass the preliminary exam are eligible to take the mains exam. The final phase of selection is the language test, which assesses candidates’ competency in their native language.
