6. 20 hour plan and other Exam Strategy of Pawan:
Pawan’s third reading was done through the practice of test series and then he had 20 days before the exams. In those 20 days he finally made his plan for studying just before the exams and the two days which he has before the exams he think those two days are very important, if you study something for 4 months but if you don’t study the same thing just before the exam it could be a waste of time then… because when you go into the exam you should have the confidence that you have read everything, everything should be fresh in your mind, so he had made 20 hour plan for those two days.
With the help of this 20 hours plan he somehow managed to complete everything and all the portions nicely. Actually his target was to read everything 100%, to study 100% of the material, not to leave anything because we cannot afford to leave anything and secondly to solve everything, to solve 100% of the answer sheet because even if you don’t know the answer you can at least write something, there is nothing that you can be completely blank about, so that was my strategy.
One more thing was that those 3 hours during the exams are very crucial whatever you study for one or two years that does not count if you do not do well in the 3 hours. So, I had planned that in the 180 minutes in which you have to give 100 marks paper, so you have 1.8 minutes for each mark so likewise you can calculate that for a 5 mark question you have 9 minutes in hand, for 10 marks question you have 18 minutes in hand so while giving the answers we can keep a track of time like, how much time is over, how many marks paper is left and accordingly we give importance to each and every mark that is important because if there is 15-20 marks paper then automatically they are giving the examiner the less chance of giving us good marks and if we solve it completely then definitely we are giving him more chance to give us more marks.
7. Tips to prepare Indirect tax Law:
Pawan Haven’t joined any coaching class for Indirect tax and he was dependent on a single book and self study. so after the first reading of Indirect Tax in September, he was a bit frightened because he haven’t joined any classes. So he decided to make his weakness into strength. He daily planned and gave 2 to 3 hours to the indirect taxes and daily studied after the test series for the last 20 days, so ultimately Pawan ended up getting the highest marks in indirect taxes. It was one of the real challenge he had faced.
8. Keep revising or update your Plan:
Pawan used to revise his study plan. According to Pawan It is not always necessary that 100% of your plan will be followed so I used to revise my plan every few days, even the daily plans I had, the something or the other used to come up but then somehow there was the determination that I have to do it and there is nobody else who can help me. I took this responsibility and finally it was done.
9. Self study benefits you more:
Pawan’s CS course is also going simultaneously. According to him professional studies requires lots of time and left you with short amount of time. What you need is proper focus and sincerity, you need to be involved in what you are doing. These are the things he learnt during student’s life.
During his journey he discovered that self-study is only going to be the way and because everybody else thinks that classes are very important but I think self study benefits you more.
