No beating about the bush & getting straight to the point. You may have read a lot of articles on this BUT I will give you concrete reasons for This. I let you see the picture from two different dimensions i.e. I will give you the scientific reason & a genuine reason.
The scientific reason :
We All Are Born With Same Amount Of Intelligence -- We all are born having approx 100 billion brain cells called neurons. Not more, not less. This means all of us are born with the same potential for intelligence. If our achievement levels have been different; we have only ourselves to blame.
We can improve our intelligence-- Since all of us are born with approx. the same number of neurons, it is not the number of neurons that segregates the less intelligent from the more intelligent human being.
Now the good news—“We Can Achieve The Level Of Intelligence We Like”.......HOW?
You can increase your intelligence by creating new connections between your neurons leading to formation of dendrites. How to do this! Just push yourself to learn new things. You need to step out of your comfort zone i.e. if accountancy is tough for you, try to learn the accounting techniques, various principles of accountancy, try to master it, just challenge your brain to work hard to a level which you think as impossible. Your brain just like your body needs constant exercising. But please don’t overstress yourself at once, try to do this by & by. Slowly slowly you can become more intelligent & ultimately Mr. CA.
The Genuine reason:
Me…myself - A Story Of Falling & Rising-- I am an average student from the very beginning of my academic life. No wonder I’ve never been in the toppers of my class. I passed my intermediate with 70% marks as a science student. Then, I did my graduation & secured just 56% marks. As soon as my final year exams were complete in march 2009, I went to Delhi (Laxminagar) to achieve the CA tag which I had always heard is given to few percentage of students every half year. Dealing with numerous difficulties side-by-side (financial, mental, health related, cultural), I prepared for my CPT & passed June 2009 attempt with 78% marks.
Next was the core stage, The IPCC. Due to financial boundations I was unable to get coaching from the so called good teachers so I resorted to teachers with low fees. Low fees forced me to use high Labour. I planned to give my 1st group in May 2010. Due to my focus on practical subjects & lack of proper guidance, I failed to prepare law, ethics & comm. & skipped the attempt. (Warning—Never commit such mistake. Give each subject a proportionate time & never ever skip any attempt).
Now, I moved to my home & started studying hard but calmly. I decided to go for both groups in November 2010. But after a fortnight I realized that to complete the whole 2nd group plus law in 1st group is not possible especially when I had My ITT & Orientation Training which consumed about 1.5 months. This started breaking me down. Now & then, my strategy was failing. I had one big question in mind, What to do?? With none to consult & share, I decided to go just for 1st group plus prepare audit in group 2nd.
Finally, I gave my 1st group in November 2010 & passed with 53.75% (with exemption in tax).Then I prepared Accounts & audit in 2nd group by myself & ITSM through Satellite classes (These were less costly), I wrote my 2nd attempt in may 2011 & cleared with 54.67% (A/c-53,Audit-58,ITSM-53) .
This, may not seem to be a very good percentage but it is better than writing both groups together & getting nowhere. If you think that one group is fine for you than go for it, no regret. Now, I suggest all my brothers-“ Never loose your Attitude to be a CA” & I promise one day you will be a QUALIFIED CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT.
