Wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2014. About 1, 52,000 candidates appeared for December, 2013 JAIIB/CAIIB examinations. Diploma and certificate examinations are scheduled for January, 2014.
Becoming fully online
You are aware that the Institute has gradually adopted technology in all its activities. It is technology which has helped the Institute to scale up its activities and maintain good quality in its efforts. In this regard even though the Institute is the pioneer in online examinations, it has not expanded online examinations beyond a point. But a time has come to move forward in the direction of going fully online for all examinations. Currently, the Institute is offering online examinations for all MCQ based certificate examinations. JAIIB examination is online in 60 centers. In these 60 centers candidates are offered a choice of paper & pencil or online. CAIIB is also MCQ based (objective type) examination but offered on a paper & pencil mode. There are four Diploma examinations which are offered in a descriptive type. JAIIB examination comprises of 120 questions whereas CAIIB examination is for 100 questions of which nearly half are straight MCQ and the remaining are case based. The Institute has been working with technology companies involved in online testing and has been able to develop an online testing system appropriate for CAIIB too.
In view of this, the following decisions have been taken:
- JAIIB examination, in the month of May/June, 2014 will be offered ONLINE mode in more centers. For this purpose, the Institute is identifying the new centers. The list will be announced in due course.
- In all these centers, JAIIB examination will be offered ONLY in ONLINE mode. In other words, in these centers candidates will not have the choice of paper & pencil mode of examination.
- For the May/June, 2014 examinations, centers where examination is offered in paper & pencil mode will be very limited. Going forward, there will be no examination in paper & pencil mode from November/December, 2014 onwards.
- CAIIB examination will also be offered ONLINE mode from May, 2014 examinations. The list of centers will be announced in due course. In all these centers, CAIIB examination will be offered ONLY in ONLINE mode. In other words, in these centers candidates will not have the choice of paper & pencil mode of examination.
- However, some of the centers for May/June, 2014 examinations will continue to be in paper & pencil mode.
- CAIIB examinations will also go completely ONLINE mode from November/December, 2014 examinations.
