My Contribution

Answers to the Questions raised...

1. More and more time for study and Continuous Readings

2. Love your study...Interest is bound to develop...Don't take it as a burden..

3. Pre Condition For Rank

    - Don't panic

    - Appear for all exams without any fear and give your best shot

    - Smart Work should be > Hard Work

4. Revision Schedule keeping in mind the tough subjects(varies from student to student) in such a manner that all the subjects get revised atleast once.

5. It's always possible to clear the attempt. I have mentored the blank students even jst 2 months before the exam and they have cleared it too.

6. With only one month left for exam..first thing to do is remove the word ONLY...1 month is too much...more than 700 Hours! 

7. 4 months period is too long...

   - I took < 2.5 months preparation for CA PE-II and

   - < 3.5 months for CA Final Preparation

8. Study Schedule

   - > 2.5 Hours daily

   - and you will be through

General Tips

1. Remove the clock from your room while studying. There is no time to sleep or study or eating...whenever you feel bored of study or get tired..only then get up from your seat..

2. Try to analyse your most productive time slot and most unproductive time slot.

    However, Late night and early morning are identified as the most productive times.

3. Find out the productive and unproductive activites(TV, Sports, Social Networking etc.) Remove the unproductive activities from your schedule

4. Make two time slots for rest(sleep). Mind gets some fatigue after continuous study of >18-20 hours.

Sleep at two times(2 hrs in afternoon and 4 hrs at night)..You will feel relaxed..


All the best to everybody..If you are well prepared..have given good attempt...then...no cut in pass percentage or slashing etc restrict you from passing the examination..

So believe in yourself...and attempt in confident manner...
