Module A- Supply and Demand, Money Supply and Inflation, Business Cycles, GDP Concepts, and Union Budget.

OVERALL COVERAGE OF ABM MODULES TO PASS CAIIB 2023
Overall, you will need to study at least 3 modules in detail so as to score 50 marks on ABM Paper. You can choose the modules to study more depending on your own strength. Different people do well in different exams & therefore, it won’t be right for me to tell you that you should skip one particular module.
I would only suggest that you keep module B at last, just read formulas from this module if you aren’t good at maths, as this module is quite boring, lengthy and hard to understand.
