We can focus on how to win your CA course.

The first  basic factors towards this direction is a positive attitude.

Basically for qualifying CA course, you need not to be a super genius. Don t feel that CA course meant for intelligent students.

What is a peculiarity of this course is even super genius also fails in this course. The main factor is your mind set up and outlook.  

The Way in which mind look the matter is attitude. The CA course is really challenging hence the role of positive attitude cannot be over emphasized.

For cope with the challenge of the course, your mind shall be tuned towards challenges. This means raise according to the challenges at the disposal.

Inject  some degree of cautiousness to the brain regarding the challenges of the course. The word here referred to as   challenging and not  tough.

At the time of joining the CA course, you may be known that the course is challenging and the passing out number is comparatively lower due to the passing standards.

 I think surely you know this basic fact at the time of joining the course.  Set the mind towards the challenging angle of the course. Be cautious, set a good goal. Students normally realize this fact after completing the first CA exam.

Try to bring the maximum out of you. You must think that CA course is not too big to hit but too big to miss .Please go through the below story.


There was a giant who was bullying and harassing the children in the village. One day, a 17-year-old shepherd boy came to visit his brothers and asked, "Why don't you stand up and fight the giant " The brothers were terrified and they replied, "Don't you see he is too big to hit " But David said, "No, he is

Not too big to hit, he is too big to miss." The rest is history. We all know what happened.

David killed the giant with a sling. Same giant, different perception.


Your approach to the course is too critical to crack this course. If you feel that the CA course is tough then the course remains tough and remain difficult to clear even if your hard work and repeated attempt.

Think that the course is very challenging and too big to miss you out. This is the positive attitude. Tune the mind towards the challenging angle so that you can get the means to  face the challenges. You may be pay more attention  and care towards the studies which otherwise cannot be achieved.

Your desire to  become CA must be burning desire. The desire shall start burning at the time of joining the course and it continue to be burn until  clearing the CA course.

If you had changed  your mind as suggested above, then , you won half battle.

Next step towards success is right goal setting

This is the  second factor towards the success. While setting the goals, please pay the attention of time available for your exam.

Some students write exam merely because the first attempt is due within the period of 10 months. As indicated above, the course is challenging so that the goal setting shall be taken in to affect this factors.

A wrong  set of goal  have the ultimate effect of failure. At the time of setting the goal, the students were ignore about the depth and scope of the subject.

But you can get an overview of the entire subject at the time of start studies. If there is senior ,what is the wrong for enquiring about the subject.

Best reference book

Now a days plenty of books were available in the market. It is recommended to buy one reference book along with ICAI book.

Study systematically

For theory subject better to prepare notes  and for cost management papers understand the concept and work out the problems.

Revise periodically.



We have all procrastinated at some time in our lives. This is the major evils  as far as a CA students is concerned. What you want to do, do it now. Procrastination is a result of negative attitude and ultimately failure.

Just an example, At the time of registering the CA course, you might be thought that I have one year period of time  , so can study it later. Ultimately the days will go fast and faster and the exam will due .

A completed task is fulfilling and energizing; an incomplete task drains energy like a leak from a tank.

Keep away the negative people and influence

Today s students facing the peer pressure from the seniors and media. CA course is difficult and tough to crack.

There is a standard deduction of mark for CA course and result manipulation. If you are writing the exam first time, if  you just see the hot discussion in our site, you can see many baseless discussion.

You may be have the potential, But if you  see the negative discussion about the course, you may be delimited to your ability.

An eagle's egg was placed in the nest of a prairie chicken. The egg hatched and the little eagle grew up thinking it was a prairie chicken. The eagle did what the prairie chickens did. It scratched in the dirt for seeds. It clucked and cackled. It never flew more than a few feet because that is what the prairie chickens did. One day he saw an eagle flying gracefully and majestically in the open sky. He asked the prairie chickens: "What is that beautiful bird " The chickens replied, "That is an eagle. He is an outstanding bird, but you cannot fly like him because you are just a prairie chicken." So the eagle never gave it a second thought, believing that to be the truth. He lived the life of and died a prairie chicken, depriving himself of his heritage because of his lack of vision. What a waste! He was born to win, but was conditioned to lose. The same thing is true of most people.

In short, If you want to soar like an eagle, you have to learn the ways of an eagle. If you associate with achievers, you will become one. If you associate with thinkers, you will become one. If you associate with givers, you will become one. If you associate with complainers, you will become one.



  Fear of failure success ; lack of self esteem

  No plan

  Lack of formalized goals

  Life changes


  Family responsibility

  Financial security issues

  Lack of focus, being muddled

  Giving up vision for promise of money

  Doing too much alone


  Lack of commitment

  Lack of training

  Lack of persistence

  Lack of priorities

 Find the above factor carefully 

Failure and fear to failure

This is the major issues faced  by the CA students. Those who had failed may be not taken properly in to the accounts the challenges of the CA course. Just a Preparing for the exam .But during the time of preparation if you had taken in to the account the challenges of the exam you can avoid the failure I think.


Below are more examples of the failures of successful people:


1. Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times while he was working on the light


2. Henry Ford was broke at the age of 40.

3. Lee Iacocca was fired by Henry Ford II at the age of 54.

4. Young Beethoven was told that he had no talent for music, but he gave some of the

best music to the world.

Setbacks are inevitable in life.

 A setback can act as a driving force and also teach us humility. In grief you will find courage and faith to overcome the setback. We need to learn to become victors, not victims. Fear and doubt short-circuit the mind.

Ask yourself after every setback: What did I learn from this experience  Only then will

you be able to turn a stumbling block into a stepping stone.


Set back is inevitable. Learn from the mistake and correct the mistake.Ultimate result is you will winning the exam and CA course.


Wish you  All the best
