Greetings of the day to all the members of CCI Family.
Now as the exams have been finished, question is what to do next?
We can see two categories of students –
- Both Groups
- Given Single Group
Through this post I would like to share some points which both categories of students can do to utilize the time in an optimum manner.
So let’s start with it:
Both Groups (Including whose 1 group have been cleared and have given second in Nov 14)
Visit the following sites to have better understanding of the practical life:
Look for the following in the above sites:
a. How to file Returns i.e. income tax, Service tax, Excise, etc.
b. How to apply for PAN
c. Various form i.e. 26AS, TDS Forms, etc.
d. Various tie ups with other countries
Update yourself with:
- M.S OFFICE
- MS EXCEL
- POWER POINT
a. Look for the videos on YouTube regarding formulas on M.S EXCEL, OFFICE, ETC.
b. Consider yourself as a CA WHILE DOING above.
c. Make a dummy company and prepare balance sheets, Excel sheets etc.
Demand of the Industry –
At this point, you are a product but you need to work out as to whether you are worth buying product. Try to update yourself for present day industry needs because yours examination may provide you the degree and a brand but not necessarily the encashment to such a degree and a brand. Visit www.icaitv.com and cmii.icai.org to get a flair of Industry expectations from you (Courtesy for this point Kamal Garg Sir)
Students who have given just 1 group –
a. If you are very sure that you would clear the group in this attempt itself, then make a study plan and start your preparations from December itself.
b. Collect all the amendments applicable for May 15 examinations.
c. Who are not sure about the exams I would recommend to at least complete the second group before the results so that they are in a suitable position of attempting both Groups in May 15.
d. Don’t wait for the results start your preparations from immediate effect otherwise it will leave a retrospective effect.
Other points –
a. Students who have given both groups may start looking for job who are done with their article ship. (Opinion may differ)
b. Work on your vocabulary as well spoken English.
c, And that’s it.
P.S: Many of you may find it silly as these are very general recommendations but as per me these if followed can change your life.
All the very best for results.
