IS JAIIB REALLY THAT DIFFICULT TO CRACK?: IIBF (Indian Institute of Banking & Finance) conducts the JAIIB exam twice every year. But due to Pandemic JAIIB, May 2021 Exam was Postponed and is now scheduled for August.
The exam dates that have been finalized as of now are:
JAIIB EXAM DATES
|28-08-2021||ONLINE – Will be given in the admit Letter||Principles & Practices of Banking|
|29-08-2021||ONLINE – Will be given in the admit Letter||Accounting & Finance for Bankers|
|05-09-2021||ONLINE – Will be given in the admit Letter||Legal & Regulatory Aspects of Banking|
JAIIB has 3 Sections: PPB, AFB, LRB
What do JAIIB Aspirants think about these 3 subjects?
PPB: Easiest but Trickiest Section
AFB: Difficult Section
LRB: Conceptual but too much mugging up required in ACT
Yes, most of the Aspirants think in this direction and lose hope on JAIIB, but JAIIB is not difficult to qualify or I should say JAIIB is the exam in which Aspirants can Score more than 70% easily.
First of all, you need to identify your strengths and weaknesses, from the syllabus. Knowing the syllabus and doing proper analysis is key to starting any preparation.
So, let’s break down the Exam according to its pattern:
JAIIB EXAM PATTERN
|.5 Marks||70 Question||70 Question||70 Question|
|1 Marks||35 Questions||35 Questions||35 Questions|
|2 Marks||15 Questions (Case Studies)||15 Questions (Case Studies)||15 Questions (Case Studies)|
It is evident from the pattern, 30% of the paper(from each subject) is from CASE STUDY. So, these 30 marks is quite achievable by attempting the section using the right approach. If you become good at the case study part by practicing and analyzing through mocks then you can easily achieve 30 marks out of 100 which will bring you one step closer to cracking the exam.
So, what do you need to do to qualify for your dream exam? How will you attempt the other 2 sections confidently?
For the other 2 Sections, You need to be diligent with your preparation. Revising the syllabus and practicing through the MOCK TEST SERIES will bring certainty in not only clearing the exam but to score well in it.
