This post is on the JAIIB Revised exam pattern, credits & JAIIB/DB&F New Syllabus for May 2023 exams onwards.
Have you heard the murmur of changes done by IIBF?
If not, then I will explain all about those changes that are going to be applicable from May 2023 onward attempts of Junior Associate of the Indian Institute of Bankers.
So, whom do this article concerns?
Those who are going to write the JAIIB & DB&F Exams in May 2023 or afterwards & those who have cleared only one or two papers of the said exam in/till 2022 but not fully completed the Junior Associate of the Indian Institute of Bankers/ Diploma in Banking & Finance & want to learn all the changes in syllabus, exam pattern & everything relevant for their exams.
Let us begin by diving into the JAIIB Exams new changes right away:
REVISED / NEW JAIIB EXAM PATTERN & PASSING CRITERIA
|Exam||JAIIB & DB&F May 2023 onwards|
|No. of MCQs||100 MCQs|
|Negative Marking||25% of the marks that are allotted to MCQ|
|Duration of the JAIIB & DB&F||2 hours|
|No. of Papers||4 compulsory Papers|
|Maximum marks (each paper)||100|
|Minimum marks required (each paper)||50 marks
45 marks – subject to the condition that the aggregate marks are 50% in all the subjects in single attempt.
CREDITS FOR THE JAIIB SUBJECTS PASSED UNDER PRESENT SYLLABUS
The credits will be allowed for the below papers/subjects of JAIIB only:
|JAIIB & DB&F 2023|
|No.||Subjects U/Present Syllabus||Credits for Subjects U/Revised Syllabus|
|1||Principles & Practices of Banking (PPB)||Principles & Practices of Banking (PPB)|
|2||Accounting & Finance for Bankers (AFB)||Accounting & Financial Management
for Bankers (AFM)
This apparently means that if you clear/ have cleared JAIIB or DB&F or even SOB in attempts of 2022, you will not be required to write or sit for the Subjects mentioned under Revised Syllabus of said exam. However, they will have to pass the following papers within given time-frame for the purpose:
- Indian Economy & Indian Financial System
- Retail Banking & Wealth Management
So, if you don’t clear/haven’t cleared JAIIB/ DB&F / SOB in the present syllabus up & until 2022, you will be required to pass the respective papers as per revised Syllabus from 2023 onwards & will be able to retain your previous credits upto:
- So, the candidate will have a maximum of 5 attempts to complete and successfully pass the JAIIB / DB&F / SOB Exam subject to the condition that these 5 attempts must be given & passed within the period of 3 years.
- These attempts need not to be given consecutively.
- This time limit will begin as soon as the candidate registers for the JAIIB / DB&F / SOB exam.
- If a candidate is not able to clear the JAIIB / DB&F / SOB Examination within 3 years or within the stipulated period then he or she have to re-enroll for the exam.
- 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 JAIIB / DB&F / SOB candidate applies for any 5 attempts out of the given / provided 6 attempts that will be conducted in span of 3 years, if they remain on 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.
How will the credits gained credits under present syllabus work?
The most important question for the candidates who have given JAIIB / SOB / DB&F Exam in 2022 or previous attempts under the present or old syllabus is how their credits will work out in the revised syllabus examinations, if any.
Indian Institute of Banking and Finance has clarified the same.
Like you have already read in the above table, for the mentioned papers of JAIIB / SOB / DB&F, if you have cleared i.e. gained credit in the any paper/s, in the attempts under present syllabus then you will be able to retain the credits for the subject’s mentioned respectively. (Check out the table: CREDITS FOR THE JAIIB SUBJECTS PASSED UNDER PRESENT SYLLABUS)
Now, the question is that how much longer can you avail the credits of the JAIIB / SOB / DB&F 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 Junior Associate of the Indian Institute of Bankers/Diploma in Banking & Finance/ Specialists Officers of Banks under the revised syllabus.
And to determine the time limit of 3 years (For the candidates who had registered under 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|
|MAY-2021||4||NIL||As the JAIIB/SOB/DB&F Registration has expired, the candidates have to re-register 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:
|NOV-2021||3||1||next 2 attempts or 1.5 years, w.e. earlier.|
|MAY-2022||2||2||next 3 attempts or 2 years, w.e. earlier.|
|NOV-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
to retain the credits,
will be exercised only once.
Its further clarified that if JAIIB candidates choose not to apply for the May 2023 attempt, it will still be considered an attempt for the calculation of stipulated time-limit of Registration/credit.
Once the balance attempts/time are/is fully exhausted, the JAIIB or SOB or DB&F candidates have to compulsorily apply afresh for the JAIIB or SOB or DB&F Exams respectively.
