Preparing for JAIIB or CAIIB? Avoid these 5 Mistakes

The candidates who are targeting for the JAIIB/CAIIB Exam should avoid the following 5 Mistakes during their preparation:

  • Wait for the Notification: This is the biggest and common mistake that most of the JAIIB/CAIIB Aspirants make. Aspirants wait for the official notification to get released by the IIBF. If your ultimate goal is to crack JAIIB/CAIIB then you should not wait for the notification. When you start your preparation early you will be ahead of the game and then you can finish the syllabus sooner. This will also provide you more time to Self-Study, practice, and Revision.
  • Failure to adhere to the Study Plan: All papers of JAIIB/CAIIB consist of a lengthy syllabus and if you are preparing for such a high-class exam, you should follow a proper study plan. Don’t go with any random books, follow a proper study guide. Use the syllabus issued by IIBF and prepare a study plan or Subscribe to JAIIB/CAIIB Courses. You should know what subject you start first and how will you manage all subjects. Sometimes Aspirants only focus on compulsory paper and ignore Elective Paper, but the Elective Paper actually helps you to score good marks overall.
  • Wasting too much time on Social Media for Study Material: There are many Fb and Telegram groups for JAIIB/CAIIB Preparation, and Most of the Aspirants rely on that. Maybe in 1 subject, they can score good marks but to qualify for JAIIB/CAIIB on the first attempt you have to be in proper flow, following random groups and using random study material will never lead you to success. 
  • Not Giving Importance to Case Study: As you know, JAIIB/CAIIB is an Exam that filters out talent, So if you are thinking you can learn some topics and then attempt the JAIIB/CAIIB exam and you will get good marks. It will never happen because of JAIIB/CAIIB tests your ability of understanding, not your learning capacity. It’s not the case that you mug up something and score good marks. You have to be strong on the Conceptual Level. Practicing Case Study will help you improve your conceptual ability & Case Study covers almost 45% of the Marks.
  • Not Practicing through Mock Tests: Many Aspirants believe that they can prepare without mock paper but then you cannot analyze your performance.  You have to be 100% Sure before going for the exam and Practicing through the Mock Test Series will give you the feeling of real exam and will instill more confidence in you. Make as many mistakes as you can in Mock Tests and Analyze them, then eliminate them and Go for the Exam.

Common Mistakes Committed During the JAIIB/CAIIB Exam

  • Candidates do not read the questions properly. This mistake of a candidate makes them regret more afterwards as they loose marks because of misreading. They realize after the paper that they knew the answer but at the time of exam could not answer because they did not read the question properly.
  • Aspirant gets panicked during the exam. One should not panic or get the exam fear during their paper. Remain focused and confident all through your exam and then you will surely be able to crack the JAIIB/CAIIB Exam.
  • Get stuck in a particular question. If you get stuck in a particular question or if a question consumes more time then skip that and move to the next one. Keep all those questions to be attempted at last.
