|Numerical Questions||Without Options

|Duration of the Exam||2 hours|
|No. of Papers||4 compulsory Papers
1 CAIIB Elective paper (from 5 available options)
|Maximum marks (each paper)||100|

CREDITS FOR THE CAIIB SUBJECTS PASSED UNDER PRESENT SYLLABUS
The credits will be allowed for the below papers/subjects of CAIIB only:
|CAIIB – Compulsory Papers|
|No.||Subjects U/Present Syllabus||Credits for Subjects U/Revised Syllabus|
|1||Advanced Bank Management||Advanced Bank Management|
|2||Bank Financial Management||Bank Financial Management|
|CAIIB – Elective Papers|
|1||Risk Management||Risk Management|
|2||Information Technology||Information Technology & Digital Banking|
|3||Central Banking||Central Banking|
|4||Human Resources Management||Human Resources Management|
|5||Rural Banking||Rural Banking|
This apparently means that if you clear/ have cleared CAIIB in 2022 attempts will not be required to write or sit for the Subjects mentioned under Revised Syllabus. However, they will have to pass the following papers within the given time-frame for the purpose:
- Advanced Business & Financial Management
- Banking Regulations and Business Laws
So, if you don’t clear/haven’t cleared CAIIB in the present syllabus up & until 2022, you will be required to pass the papers as per revised Syllabus for papers from 2023 onwards & can retain your previous credits upto:
- So, the candidate will have a maximum of 5 attempts to complete and successfully pass the CAIIB Exam subject to the condition that these 5 attempts must be given & passed within the period of 3 years.
- The CAIIB attempts need not to be given consecutively.
- This time limit will begin as soon as the candidate registers for the CAIIB exam.
- If a candidate is not able to clear the CAIIB Examination within 3 years or within the stipulated period then he or she have to re-enroll in the CAIIB.
- It is also to be noted that the credits if any gained from the previous examinations given under the previous registration will not be granted under new registered attempts.
- The time limit of 3 years of 5 attempts, as we have talked about will be begin from the date – the candidate has registered for the first attempt.
- It is also to be noted that the attempts shall be counted was exam whether the candidate has appeared for any examination or not.
This all means that if a candidate applies for any 5 examinations/attempts out of the given/provided 6 attempts that will be conducted in 3 years if they remain un-successful in passing the exam then they will have to re and roll them by paying the requisite fee. In the same way, if a candidate does not avail any or avail less than 5 attempts within when given three years, then they will be required to view an old answer for the exam.
IMPORTANT NOTE in relation to retail banking candidates:
If any candidates who have not passed CAIIB but have passed or not passed Retail Banking – CAIIB elective subject under the present syllabus, in either of the case – will have to select a new CAIIB elective subject as per the revised syllabus!
BUT WHAT IF YOU HAVE GAINED CREDITS UNDER THE PRESENT SYLLABUS?
The most important question for the candidates who have given CAIIB Exam 2022 or previous attempts under the present / old syllabus is how their credits will work out in the revised syllabus examinations if any.
IIBF has clarified the same.
Like you have already read in the above table, for the mentioned papers of CAIIB, if you have cleared i.e. gained credit in the papers, in the attempts under present syllabus then you will be able to retain the credits for the subjects mentioned respectively. (Check out the table: CREDITS FOR THE CAIIB SUBJECTS PASSED UNDER PRESENT SYLLABUS)
Now, the question is that how much longer can you avail the credits of the CAIIB papers you have given under the previous attempts (obtained 50 or more marks in the paper)?
The answer is that the credits gained will be valid under revised scheme and will be directly linked to the time limit rule.
If you have availed or exhausted three attempts under the present syllabus, then you will have 2 more attempts to pass Certified Associate of the Indian Institute of Bankers under the revised syllabus.
And to determine the time limit of 3 years (of the candidates registered in the present syllabus), it will start from the date of registration of their first attempt under the present syllabus.
To explain it further, take a look at the below table:
|FIRST ATTEMPT||ATTEMPTS EXHAUSTED UNTIL 2022 EXAMS||BALANCE ATTEMPTS UNDER 2022 SYLLABUS||ATTEMPTS ALLOWED AS PER REVISED SYLLABUS|
|Jun-2021||4||NIL||As the CAIIB Registration has expired, the candidates have to re-register for CAIIB under Revised Syllabus|
|In the next cases, the candidates will have the choice either to:
Now, if they don’t forgo, their credit will be valid for:
|Dec-2021||3||1||next 2 attempts or 1.5 years, w.e. earlier.|
|Jun-2022||2||2||next 3 attempts or 2 years, w.e. earlier.|
|Dec-2022||1||3||next 4 attempts or 2.5 years, w.e. earlier.|
|Note: The choice of either to forgo his/her credits & re-register under revised Syllabus or retain the credits, will be exercised only once.|
Its further clarified that if CAIIB candidates choose not to apply for the June 2023 attempt, it will still be considered an attempt for the calculation of the stipulated time-limit.
Once the balance attempts are exhausted, the CAIIB candidates have to compulsorily apply afresh for the CAIIB Exams.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING ELECTIVE PAPERS!
CAIIB candidates now also have the choice to change their CAIIB elective subject from the available options in revised Syllabus.
For example: If a candidate had opted for the CAIIB elective paper on HRM for the June 2023 exam but had failed the said exam – he will now have the option to choose another CAIIB elective subject say Retail Banking when he or she applies for the next attempt (December 2023), if he or she wishes to appear for the same.
