Important guidelines to prepare theory subjects in CA exams

Tips to prepare theory subjects in CA exams
1. Focus on important topics and make a strategy to complete them first. If you can successfully perform this task then it will give you lot of confidence.

2. Prepare a list of Exam oriented important chapters with the help of scanner and design your study schedule accordingly. The earlier you perform this exercise, the more time you will have to design your study schedule and prepare for the examination.

3. Prepare a list of frequently asked questions from scanne.
How to Prepare Law subject
1.   Use Scanner from the very beginning. It helps you to recognize which chapter is to be given preference. Prepare a list of Chapter wise frequently asked questions from the Scanner and prepare them properly.

2.   Try and develop a sense to figure out excess study material from the exam point of view and cross that material immediately in your book. Study Material provided by the institute is not updated most of the times and full of totally irrelevant material/theory.

3.   If you have time prepare your own notes to learn properly only for important topics along with frequently asked questions solution.

4.  As per my opinion you shouldn’t ask anybody about the relevance of quoting sections in Exams. It is off course extremely useful in law subjects especially in CA Exams. Try and quote section in your exams without any hesitation. Prepare a special strategy for remembering sections. If you make it a habit now it will 100% pay at the time of your final preparation.

5.  Don’t play with the language of law specially Definitions. It is strongly recommended to put the definition in the exact language. However you can take slight liberty while drafting your answer in respect of other law language but the context, texture, interpretation and meaning should not be changed.

6.  Work out on your presentation and writing skills.

7. Don’t use different notes for one topic. Finalise your notes before starting final Examination preparation and stick with them.  

8.  10 Days before examination date do not add any new topic in your schedule. Just focus on revision-revision and revision.

9.  Time saving method: As per my opinion in theory paper you should attempt flat questions first. After that attempt practical problems. Like in Audit or Law first attempt short notes or distinctions etc. In the beginning if you attempt practical problems first then there may be wastage of time in reading the problem twice or thrice.

10. Make Point & give heading: In other words write your answer to the point. Try and convert the paragraphs in to points and give them a heading like I am giving in this Article. However, if during exam you have no time then avoid this practice. But it’s a very good technique of theory presentation.

Use of sections in the exam

As per my suggestion student should start writing sections and case laws at the PCC level itself. I would suggest you to make it a habit to remember sections along with case laws as it will surely help you a lot during preparation for CA final or other professional examinations. Section and case law knowledge is also very important for your professional working. It is 100% true.

Keep one thing in mind -- write the sections and case laws only when you are 100 % sure, otherwise leave it.

However let me tell you one thing you can easily clear your CA without sections but for me it is all about standards. Now the choice is yours.

All the best students..
