International Capital Budgeting

Happy to see the question where students will have to read it more than twice and will have to put thinking hat on. Every mark is worth. This should have been in Compulsory List.

5 - C

4 marks

Financial Strategy -

Theory

Right from study material. Even I can answer this.

6 - A

8 Marks

Portfolio

Second question from this chapter. We could have avoided this and put another question from forex instead.

6 - B

8 Marks

Business valuation

Good question. Knowledge of 2 stage model is needed and also some good reading for proper interpretation.

6 - C

4 Marks

Securitization / International Capital Budgeting - Theory

Again from study Material

 
 

Overall Comment: Paper was really simple. It is a good scoring paper. Exemption is a must. However I personally feel that ICAI should raise the bar. We need some talented question and make scoring tough. This paper will make students rely heavily on past papers and study material. We need to test speed along with cognitive and analytical ability.
