the 3rd rank.
What was your mom’s reaction?

As you were in class so how did you
get to know that you secured AIR 3rd rank?
I got a call from my center where I did the coaching. My Sir told

ease as it’s easy to prepare a schedule but not easy to follow the
Ok, so what is the most important
thing that students should take care of, while writing the exams?
Basically, my coaching classes completed by the month of October
and as I had to attend the classes at my center, I didn’t get the
sufficient time for self-study. Almost in last one month, I did
self-study. I covered the practical subjects in the classes itself.
In that last month, I put more effort over my theory subjects so
that I can create a balance between both of them. At last, the result
lose confidence; rather should keep the faith in oneself. Prior
to exams, some students assume CA exams are difficult, so that shouldn’t
be the case. One shouldn’t lose the confidence; that’s it!
