The burden of exams this year on students is a little different than usual. With the pandemic situation reaching its near zenith, this year students were highly perplexed about giving the exam. Over thirty thousand students opted out from this cycle of the exam. However, still, a large number of students did appear to give the exam.

This cycle's Financial reporting paper was quite lengthy. It included 20 pages and highly descriptive questions. Nonetheless, the paper was not made to be a tricky one. In fact, except for the one question, the whole paper was fairly easy. Every question was from Financial Reporting's module.

The one question that stood apart from the rest of the question paper and question patterns was put up to check the conceptual clarity of the students.

As per the paper, the questions can be analyzed in the following way.

Q.1) The first question was compulsory with two parts for a total of 20 marks, 12 marks for the first part and 8 marks for the second.

a- The first part is from Indian Accounting standard 32 (Ind AS 32). The question is quite easy to understand.

b- This part of the question is from the Indian Accounting standard (Ind AS 33).

The questions that followed the earlier question are also 20 marks each however they are not compulsory. One had to attempt 4 out of the remaining 5 questions.

The questions were asked from consolidated finance, business combination, etc. The main focus of the paper was on business combinations and financial instruments. These questions had quite a weightage in the entire paper. This time the institute has also tried to ask only those kinds of questions which students do not mostly pay attention to. This makes us understand that the paper requires a broader amount of proficiency in the subject to pass one of the toughest exams of the world. However, with constant practice and regular coaching, this could be attained. To not to get out of the routine of practice is central to pass such an exam.
