The law exam seems a lot challenging to students because there is an enormous amount of theory in the subject. There are cases, sections, provisions, case study and what not. We have to understand this one first though. For the CA Inter Law exam you have to memorize the theoretical part. There is no getting around it. You can either learn by writing again and again or make notes and bullet points.

Since this is a law exam it is very important that you remember sections for the answers. Sections are essential as they provide credibility to your answers. However, if you are not able to remember the sections then you can avoid mentioning the section but don’t write wrong ones. This way you may end up getting your marks deducted in your answers. The exam checker might not pay a lot of attention if you don’t add the section in the answer but if you write the wrong one it will definitely get the eyeballs and you get the wrong end of the deal.

It is understandable that one cannot remember each and every word of the study material and just write it down exactly in the exam. What you can do though is write the answers in your own words but you should be using some jargons/technical terms in the answer. The sections and jargons are enough to make your answers look credible so focus on remembering them and for everything else just convey it in our words. If you are wondering where you’ll get all these terms just follow the material provided to you by ICAI.

In the law exam you get questions from a case study. The approach for such questions can be taken down in three simple steps. First of all, after reading the question of the case study identify which provision is applicable in the question. After that, you relate the case study with the facts and the provisions. Lastly, you give your conclusion by keeping the provisions as the base of the answer.  

All these steps can help you get the best score in the law exam. Remember that this exam will challenge your memory and your ability to understand the complex problems.
