This is the discussion focusing about writing both group, its merit and reason for opting group wise.
If we take the trend of student writing both groups together, it is lower than individual group. Why more students like to write :
CA exam individual group?
Only one resource is required for writing both group in my opinion is “Sufficient time” for preparation. This is varying from students to student so that defining a time frame for writing both groups is impossible.
Investment in studies involves time. Our objective here is not to reduce the time rather optimize the time to study.
Writing group wise is lagging your success see following cases.
How can switch to both groups?
Insufficient time students opt for individual group?
At the time of registering, I think some of our friends have sufficient time for preparing both Groups. Seriousness to studies is slow poison. When the exam dates approaches, will be more serious about studies and there is no choice other than group.
Some others because of vast area of syllabus and come from non -commerce streams may require more time to settle down.
Due to Rush between office and coaching class find difficult for own preparations, classes for any particular group may be pending.
Thus, the reason for insufficient time is vary.
Fear to fail:
This is the major reason where the students opt for Individual group. Some may be thinking that giving full focus on any particular group will lead to passing the exam.
This is may not be true. Since CA exam pattern and method cannot be predictable.
One of the important issue associated with group wise students are failing for want of aggregate marks. Getting 40 marks is not a difficult but overall mark may be problems. Even if you fail for want of aggregate you still failed.
Merit for opting of both group:
a) Carry forward benefit .
You can simply overcome the aggregate mark problems by carry forwarding.
b) No pending of other group
Since you have learned both groups, there is no problem of pending other group always.
