RG(BCom,CA,CS,CMA,CFA,DISA,MBA (Professional) (1023 Points)

31 December 2010  


Just an attempt by me to answer some of the general questions confronted by all the students..Originally posted by Ankur Garg..


Ankur Garg’s Contribution

Dear Members,

 Through this write-up an attempt has been made to invite the views of learned members regarding few queries listed below:


Few common queries raised by the students again and again are:


1. I am not able to recall prepared topics at the time of Exam


2. I am not comfortable with Law or Audit or Account….or XYZ subject.


3. How to get Rank in Exams


4. How to prepare a good revision schedule


5. I have very less time to study…it is possible to clear this attempt?


6. Can u guide me how to prepare for studies before exams. There is only 1 month left so plzz guide me.


7. Weather with 4 months preparation can I clear my final exam in my first attempt. please guide as i am very tensed about my study , still now i dint start my preparation . and in dec 2010 i have also my cs exam.


8. I am persuing CS professional course, I am working student, kindly advise me laymen strategy to clear it..


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...

@ Rahul..good work..i too cleared CA n CS in 1st attempt..my advice to all CA aspirants is .. be mentally strong n improve lifestyle too..practice alot ..CA is one of the easiet exam to crack if u take it in positive way coz even an average student can clear CA final in 1st attempt but that is not possible in CAT/IIT exams..so prepare in 360 way n secure ur life..Revision is the key..even mandar dixit revised syllabus for 15 times..many students blame they r slow in grasping..i think every body got the brain..but how to use it makes the differnce..

One more tip..

CA/ CS/ CWA is just about managing 2 things....

TIME Management + STRESS Management

Believe me...if you have learnt to manage these two..you will be through..

And this is the golden time of the age...we have the option to waste it or enrich it by our deeds!

I agree that enjoyment is necessary in life..but atleast i never tasted it in 5 years...because i never wanted to see 2nd attempt...and i could not have been brave enough to appear again...Thus, my advice is to get prepared in such a way that you don't see failure...

Example - Virender Sehwag must be careful while facing short pitch deliveries in South Africa instead of repenting later on after being given out! But then; that too is unavoidable...

So my sincere advice..be serious from the very first day...even if you complete CA at age of 25...you will have more than this age left for the enjoyment...

Manage Your time in such a way that productivity may be maximum...

Prepare schedules and adhere to it..

Don't let stress take over you...Stress is nothing just a temporary phenomenon which can be got rid of by your permanent abilities...i myself sat for total of 50 Exams in CA, CS and CWA...and have undergone same situation(stress)...

If we follow some rules...month of January and July will be the joyful moments...
