The Institute will be launching the modified structure for CAIIB examination from December, 2010 onwards. For this purpose the Institute has completely revised and restructured the syllabus for the CAIIB Examination in consultation with all its stake holders.
Candidates to the new CAIIB examination will have to write two compulsory papers and one optional paper. The list of compulsory papers and elective papers are given below. Among the eleven elective papers the candidate will have chose one elective paper.
- Advanced Bank Management
- Bank Financial Management
- Corporate Banking
- Rural Banking
- International Banking
- Retail Banking
- Co-operative Banking
- Financial Advising
- Human Resources Management
- Information Technology
- Risk Management
- Central Banking
- Treasury Management
The course content has been carefully developed so as to be relevant to the modern banking workspace and SBUs of the banks particularly in an era of vertical based banking operations.
The details of the syllabus and course content, examination rules can be viewed at http://www.iibf.org.in
Courseware for the compulsory and elective subjects are under print and will be published by end of July 2010. The translation of the courseware in Hindi is underway and in due course the candidate should be able to download the same from the Institute’s portal.
The revised syllabus is being introduced from Dec 2010/Jan2011 examination.
Therefore both (a) Candidates enrolling first time for the CAIIB examination and (b) candidates who desire to re-enroll for CAIIB examination i.e. after having availed four (4) permissible consecutive attempts and not completing examination will have to submit their applications under the Revised (2010) Syllabus. These candidates cannot apply for the examination under previous syllabus. In fact the institute will not accept any new application under the old pattern. Accordingly the old pattern examination will cease to exist after Dec 2011.
It is recommended that candidates who had enrolled for CAIIB for December 2009 examination and have completed two attempts in the CAIIB examination as of June 2010 without passing any paper so far may consider applying under the new syllabus instead of enrolling for 2nd block of 2 attempts under the old syllabus.
- The present time limit of four consecutive attempts for passing the examination will continue.
- Candidates can however move to the Revised Syllabus even before availing all four (4) permissible consecutive attempts.
- Candidates will not get credit for subject/s passed, if any, under the old syllabus as the course has been completely revamped and re-structured.
- No new candidate for the old syllabus will be enrolled effective from November 2010. New candidates necessarily need to enroll for revised syllabus only.
In order to address the needs of continuous professional developments, candidates, who are already CAIIB, can appear for elective subjects of their choice. On passing the same the candidate will be given a certificate on the given elective as a post CAIIB qualification. However as the Examination of all elective papers will be conducted simultaneously, candidates can apply for only one elective paper at a time. In due course the institute will link such additional qualifications for the award of its Associate Membership to the candidates.
