Words to the wise
Getting practical with the bookish knowledge is very important.
I had to keep that thing in my mind all the time du ring exam preparation that only 5-6 People are
going to pass out of 100.
Writing the correct answer and expecting to get the marks would have been the biggest mistake I
could have done.
Because I cannot underestimate other participant in the contest, that’s why I assumed that
everybody is going to put their efforts for the sam e exam, and among 100 it’s obvious that atleast
30-35 people can give the right answer for any part icular question but not all the 30-35 are going to
Pass the Exam. Clear enough.
So, writing the correct answer and expecting a spot in top 5 represents that I am still the poor guy
who didn't understand the game yet.
And there's absolutely no place for the weak people in exams like CA, hence there's no choice but
to be Strong.
Knowing all these things I was bound to put extra e fforts, something which majority of the students
might not be doing in their preparation.
I researched, I surfed, I asked and then found few things. I did it and frankly it was a blind game
because I didn't know whether it’s going to work or not. But taking the risk again is only option
which may give you return. And on the other side I was happy somewhere because the moment I
decided to do something extra was the moment I sepa rated myself from rest of the world. In my
eyes I was no more a person picked up from the crow d. First you only have to feel that you are
special and then the world will participate in your belief.
