HOW TO PASS CA EXAMS WITHOUT PREPARATION

K N V S SIVAKUMAR (QUALITY LEAD AT CHEGG INDIA PVT LTD)   (964 Points)

22 October 2010  

This is the Story of a Clever Student:

A CA Student far away from his preparation upto the last minute of his exams, has got a thought of passing the exam using the "THEORY OF PROBABILITY".

His assumptions were as follows:

(1) The Question paper will be asked for 100 marks divided into 20Questions (Including Subquestions).

(2) He has on an average 20 Chapters to prepare in a week time.

(3) There will be "PROBABILITY" of changing in previous "PROBABILITY(ies)".

Basing on the above assumptions, he started the last week of preparation as follows.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Particulars                                            Probability of getting a Question             Probability of not getting a Question                                                                                                     form this Chapter                                        form this Chapter

_____________________________________________________________________________________

CHAPTER - 1                                      

(One Question out of 20 Questions)               = 1/20      = 0.05                                               1-0.05 = 0.95  

Being the probability of NOT GETTING THE QUESTION FROM THAT CHAPTER IS HIGH he safely left that Chapter.

Next.............

CHAPTER - 2                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 3                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 4                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 5                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 6                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 7                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 8                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 9                                                                     0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 10                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 11                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95                                             

CHAPTER - 12                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 13                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 14                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 15                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 16                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 17                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 18                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 19                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

CHAPTER - 20                                                                   0.05                                                                0.95

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Average                                                              = (0.05X20)/20 = 0.05                                     = (0.95X20)/20 = 0.95

_______________________________________________________________________________________

 He finally concluded that the PROBABILITY OF GETTING A QUESTION FROM THE ENTIRE SYLLABUS IS LESS THAN THE PROBABILITY OF NOT GETTING A QUESTION FROM THE ENTIRE SYLLABUS.

Then he left the Preparation for ever............................

He started again his "THEORY OF PROBABILITY" for his results as under................

For PAPER - I

PROBABILITY of Getting "40" out of "100 Marks" = 40 Marks out of 100 Marks = 40/100 = 0.40

HENCE,

PROBABILITY of Not Getting "40" out of "100 Marks" = 60 Marks out of 100 Marks = 60/100 = 0.60

 

Like wise he computed for all his Eight Papers and Finally Concluded that......

Average "PROBABILITY" of Not Getting 40 Marks out of 100 Marks  = (0.6 X 8 Papers) / 8 = 0.60 or 60%



HENCE HE WILL SURELY PASS THE EXAM WITHOUT PREPARATION....................

 

The ICAI declared the Result on a Fine Day and his result was Displayed as under........................
