 Comfort that is the main issues.. Do you want to become a CA during this november itself? I hope yes. But the issue is  insuffucient time..For those who getting the gold medal in olympics were practising hard for 16 hours, sleep only 4 hours find reserving the time for personal activity for just 4 hours. But you need to do such a level of hard work up to this november only and thereafter you are free from the studies and can get a better job than present...

The pass % were low for final level and require a good level of dedication for stuides.. But believe your self  you can qualify no doubt
