Your 3 steps of success

Learn

First step in your preparation is to start understanding and learning the concepts. Start taking subjects one by one following the time-table.

Now what should be your method of studying?

  1. First a fast reading of the chapter should be done.. usually one page should not be given more than 5 minutes
  2. Second reading should be slower, understanding each topic clearly.
  3. Once the reading is done all questions given in the book should be attempted. First attempt all questions without using any answers and then check all questions at the end
  4. You should mark your questions in a special way..i.e. the questions which were correct in the first attempt should be crossed and there is no need to attempt these questions again…all other questions which were incorrect should be done on next revision and follow the same steps of crossing the correct questions at that time.

Revise

Revision is a very important part for achieving success in any exam. You remember only 20% of what you read after 24 hours, so multiple quick revisions are very necessary. See timetable for the frequency of revisions required.

Practice

Practice is the most important part of your preparation and should be given 100% focus. Once you have completed your first revision, its time to take mock test.. mock test help a lot in preparing you for exam day and also highlight your weak areas.

Read this post on why mock tests are important and this post where CA Final topper tells how mock tests helped her.

Study Group

Forming a study group helps in discussing queries and getting a better understanding of the subject. If you have friends taking CA CPT exam then you can form a study group with them or else you join an online forum for forming a discussion Group.

Exam Day

You should be completely relaxed and rested for the final exam day. See this post on tips for CA CPT Exam Day.

    • prabhat says

      Then you are in a difficult situation. You should start focussing on maths now and try to be able to solve maths problem quickly. Be selective and leave the topics you think are difficult to work.

    • prabhat says

      Generally it takes 15-20 days, but it also depends on your location. Call ICAI to check the status.

Sir I want to know that how to crack cpt in first attempt with good score (150+) and my friends were told me that cpt is bit tough but you cannot clear ipcc bcoz it’s very tough sir plz help me.

    • prabhat says

      Hi Deep, only way to success is hard work. If you are weak in your concepts, you can take coaching, that will really help your.

      It is true that IPC is much more difficult then CPT, but yet again everything is possible with hard work.
