TIME LIMIT FOR PASSING UNDER THE REVISED SYLLABI 

The time-limit rule under revised syllabus will be as under:

  1. A candidate will be given 5 attempts for completion of each exam (JAIIB / DB&F / SOB / CAIIB) but, within a maximum period of three years, whichever is earlier, from the time he/she registers for the exam. These 5 attempts need not be consecutive.
  2. Candidates unable to pass the examination within the maximum stipulated time period of 3 years or 5 attempts, whichever is earlier, will be required to re-enrol themselves afresh. Such candidates will not be granted credit/s for subject/s passed, if any, earlier.
  3. Time limit of 3 years or 5 attempts, whichever is earlier, will start from the date of registration for the first attempt. Attempts will be counted when he/she applies for the exam, irrespective of whether the candidate appears for any examination or not.
  4. The rules mentioned above imply that, normally a candidate will be eligible to apply for any five examinations out of the six examinations being conducted within the stipulated period of three years. If a candidate avails all five attempts before completion of three years, he/she will be required to re-enrol themselves afresh. Similarly, if a candidate does not avail five attempts but the stipulated period of three years is over, he/she will be required to re-enrol themselves afresh.

VALIDITY OF CREDITS FOR SUBJECTS PASSED UNDER THE PRESENT SYLLABI

The validity of credits will be linked to the time-limit rule under the revised syllabus. To amplify, in case a candidate  has availed / exhausted 3 attempts under the present

syllabus, he/she will now get 2 more attempts to pass the JAIIB/DB&F/ CAIIB under the revised syllabi. For such of the candidates who are under the present syllabi but will be availing credits under the revised syllabi for the subject(s) concerned, the time-limit period of 3 years, under the revised syllabi, will be counted from the date of registration for the 1st attempt under the present syllabi.
