Hi CA FINAL Students,
You must be wondering how to choose the Elective subject in Group 2 under the new scheme.
I will not overwhelm you with loads of not so important data but come right to the point.
I have classified each subject(except for the Multi disciplinary case studies paper) under xx categories and made remarks accordingly.
Go through them and decide for yourselves which one is the best suited for you.
But remember, the most important aspect is your own Personal interest. You should never opt for a subject if you are not particularly interested or just because your friend/cousin has opted a specific subject. The final decision should be yours.
I have also created a TELEGRAM group exclusively for CA FINAL NEW Scheme students. You can discuss and deliberate about the subjects, Faculty, notes and most importantly the elective subject choice. You will also have the further benefit of getting important ADVICE from me, CA NARAYANA MURTHY PUPPALA about the best elective subject based on your personal preferences and career choices. I will be more than willing to answer your queries.
