Without arithmetic, you can clear only preliminary exam, but job will be secured after the Mains exam. In pre you can do DI and your number series and BODMAS questions (It is the simplest of all) and try to score full in English and LR. But to be honest, arithmetic is the easiest topic in mathematics, 80 percent of arithmetic can be solved if you are good at calculations and plain logic.
So do well and nail the exam
But yes, to answer your question, the exam can be aced.
If you're from General category, then big no.
In prelims, only 50% portion of quants is arithmetic so you can score in other topics like number series, quadratic equations and simplification approximation. In Mains examination, 90 to 95% portion will be based on arithmetic there you cannot clear sectional cutoff if you ignore arithmetic. I suggest you that don't ignore whole arithmetic. Try to cover at least 40% of the syllabus of arithmetic
I hope this will help you.

The difficulty level depends on many factors, such as the aspirant's interest. For example, someone whose English is weak will think of IBPS as tougher than CGL.

For example, someone whose English is weak will think of IBPS as tougher than CGL. Here are some parameters according to which you may decide which one is difficult for you:
1. Syllabus wise: The syllabus of IBPS PO can be completed in 4 months, but the SSC CGL syllabus is vast and it needs a minimum of 6 months.
2. Pattern wise: IBPS PO is a three-stage recruitment process, of which the third one is the interview. On the other hand, SSC CGL is a four-stage recruitment process. If any aspirant is uncomfortable with the interview round, then SSC is easier as there is no interview in SSC CGL. Also, the whole process of CGL takes more than one year, whereas the IBPS process is completed in six months' time.
3. Stage wise: In IBPS PO the prelims scores are not counted in the final merit list and, therefore, you just need to qualify. On the other hand, in SSC there are around four levels; tiers one, two, three, and four, and an aspirant cannot afford to lose marks at any stage because the marks from all the stages are considered for the final merit list. Therefore, in this way, SSC CGL is more challenging.
4. The level of reasoning, computer aptitude, and English questions asked in IBPS PO exams is higher compared to SSC CGL. Also, there is a section-wise cut off which needs to be cleared. Both exams have a level of difficulty, but None of them is too difficult to clear. With proper strategy and practice, you can clear either of them, be it a banking exam like IBPS or SSC CGL.
