Understanding the Complete Syllabus of JAIIB examination

Understanding the syllabus :

In any examination if we want to pass that exam we should thoroughly understand the syllabus first.  Because understanding the syllabus will give us a clear picture of what we are going to learn and we get some insights about the subject. It also helps us to have an idea whether we are familiar with that topic or not. This will help you to assess the complexity of the subject and how much time you need to spend with a topic. So first understanding the JAIIB  syallbus will give you a good overview about each paper. In this post we will see about the JAIIB syllabus.

The JAIIB exam consists of the following three papers. To know more about the examination click here

Now we will see the syllabus of the subjects in detail. For our understanding we will split the syllabus of each paper  into modules, Units/Chapters, Topics, Sub-topics. (I think we should stop here :P).

Each papers consists of 4 Modules.

Each module may contain 8 to 15 Units/Chapters.

Each Unit may consist 4 to 15 topics.

Each topic may consist of 4 to 15 sub-topics.

Don’t get exhausted because of the contents in the syllabus just go thorough the topics along its module for 3 to 5 times you will get some insights about each module. When you study for the fourth or fifth time you will feel certain topics are familiar to you. And in some topics you know what it is but you need to study more about that topic. Thereby you will get a sense of confidence for the preparation. So this confidence is the key point from there you can built your bridge of Sucess.

PAPER : 1 – Principles & Practices of Banking:

PAPER: 2 – Accounting  & Finance for Bankers:

PAPER: 3 – Legal & Regulatory Aspects of Banking:


Apart from the above syllabus we need to refer the following for full preparation of the JAIIB exam.  Our industry is very dynamic, rules and regulations were changing within a night (Demonetisation) and Government also developing many financial literacy schemes every month. Since many aspects of banking IIndustry are changing and developing every day we need to update ourself by referring the following.

  1. Current developments in Master Circulars/ Master revisions issued by RBI
  2. Websites of RBI,  SEBI, BIS, IRDAI, FEDAI for reference and development in concerned subjects
  3. IIBF Vision and Bank Quest published by IIBF.
  4. Financial newspapers/publication can also be referred for current affairs.
  5. New Government Schemes launched in our Banking Industry

The cut off dates for questions related to current development in the Banking Industry :

  • For February session exams – 31st December
  • For July session – 30th June

It means the current developments updated in our Industry up to 31st December (30th June) may be asked in February (July session ) session. So plan yourself.

    You mean that 6 months Currant Afairs upto 31st Dec has to be revised for February Jaaib Exam?

    1. Guru Bakyesvara Pandiyan (Post author)

      Not like that. It doesnt mean the updates happened during six months. It means updates happened upto 31st December for Feb session and upto 30th June for Nov session is asked.

      So even developments happened during the past years can also be asked but not the developments after the sepcified cutoff date for that particular session

    No need to prepare last 6 months current affairs for competitive exams. last 4 month is enough for all exams
