Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at
I appreciate your detailed query.

BCA with 95%? Are you in the University merit list? Anyways, congratulations!

You can definitely enter the banking sector as IT officer through the IBPS route as already nicely explained by by colleague Prathamesh here. You are eligible for the post. However I would suggest you to complete a post graduation through taking up MCA before joining the industry. MCA will help you a lot in terms of deeper understanding, increased salary pay and confidence.

Along side you can start preparing for IBPS exam.

Best wishes,
