Hey i m in my Bcom 1st year...when can i apply for the DBF exam? like aftr 3rd wil be better? what is the duration of the course n how many papers ?
You can apply for the exam right now as the eligibility criteria is 12th pass. I would suggest that you choose one of those years in which the study pressure is comparitively lower. Appearing for the exam in your B.Com 3rd year would definitely give you an advantage i.e. you will already have a fair bit of idea about all the subjects in the DBF examination.
There are 3 subjects:
1. Principles & Practices of Banking
2. Accounting & Finance for Bankers
3. Legal & Regulatory Aspects of Banking
Once you register for the exam, you will get approximately 4 months to study for it. I would suggest that you buy books earlier and start studying straightaway because that will give you enough time to crack the exam at one go. All the best!
