Make a Study Plan
Divide your time into the subjects according to your capability and knowledge skills. It would be better to allocate time to every subject in a day rather than allocating days to each subject. Try to cover some portions of every subject in a day according to the allocated time. In this way, you will be able to cover each subject daily and it will not be monotonous.
Most importantly, leave a minimum of 3 days before the exam date for the revision of the first exam. Give some time slot for rest in between to freshen up the mind. Ideally, the Rest slot should be a maximum of 30 minutes and not more than 4 times a day.
Make a combination of Practical and Theory subject diligently. Don’t stick to theory for the whole day. Practice some questions of any practical subjects in between. Sticking to theory for a whole day can lead to low effectiveness and might make you sleepy. At least 14 hours of study is required daily at such a crucial time.
However, if the students are not able to make it they can also reach out to CA Exam Test Series and they can prepare a customized Revision Plan suiting to students’ needs.
Source Material for Revision
If you have your own handwritten notes covering every topic, then that is the best resource for revising that subject as it will help you to regain that topic more quickly and easily. But If you have don’t your own handwritten notes, then the second best source material is the book/notes from where you had earlier studied or had taken classes. Don’t switch to some other book that you have never read or gone through earlier at this crucial time. For practical subjects such as Accounting or SFM or SCM, you can take another book or scanner from any publisher and practice as many questions as you can.
ICAI always provides the latest Revision Test Papers (RTPs) to all the students who have registered themselves for exams in the upcoming attempt. These RTPs cover all the amendments which are applicable to students for that attempt. Do not ever forget to cover the amendments mentioned in the RTP. Also, try to cover the previous RTPs for amendments if not covered by you earlier.
ICAI Mock Tests
It would be good if you could give a full syllabus test series or ICAI mock test 2023 conducted by ICAI. One should be very obedient to the limited 3 hours’ time while giving CA mock test series sitting at home. It helps a lot at the time of giving the exam. Here’s how:
Since you have already tested your speed by giving such tests, it helps in maintaining your speed by completing the whole paper on time. Also, you are now aware of the exam pattern properly. You will get to know how to attempt the exam.
You will be able to practice some extra questions both for practical and theory subjects by giving such tests.
You will be able to evaluate your mistakes so as to avoid them during examinations. You will get to know the level of your preparation for each subject.
