What does it take to crack CA Intermediate in a single attempt? Conceptual knowledge coupled with effective preparation, the experts will tell you. We are on the same page with them on this. But what does effective preparation mean to you?

For many students, it means studying intensively, running to and from tuition classes, biding adieu to social media and stuffing the brain with chunks from CA textbooks! Now that ICAI has come up with the new syllabus, there is a prevalent fear among students that cracking CA Intermediate will be tougher than usual. Perceptions like this will not really help, if you are planning to appear for CA Intermediate in November 2018!

 Just what should a student do to avoid the clutter? Let us start with a magical phase that will keep all second thoughts at bay. Every time you find a tricky question taking shaping in your mind, silence it with an assertive ‘yes, I can’. Can you clear CA Intermediate in one go? ‘Yes, I can’. Can you do the groups one by one? ‘Yes, I can’ (the choice is yours). Can you cope with the study pressure? ‘Yes, I can’. Have you registered with the ICAI yet for the November 2018 CA Intermediate? This should be a resounding, ‘YES, I HAVE’! You’d better register yourself before time runs out.

Okay, now that you have kept your fears aside, let us get down to business and discuss the plan ahead.  If you are planning to go for just one group in this attempt and you want to draw up the perfect study schedule ahead, congratulations, you have landed to just the right place. We have just the thing you have been looking for!

Phase 1: Learning Phase* (Hourly Basis) #

The learning phase stretches roughly over six months. During this time, you will be dividing your time between self-study and tuition classes. While in this phase, you will be learning the important concepts in all the subjects. The coaching classes that you go for will hardly be effective if not followed up with self-study. So, set some time aside to mull over everything you learn at the tuition classes.

For students appearing for a single group, it is important to be on track. Single group students are comparatively less pressurized than the students who appear for both the groups together. Sticking to this study plan will make sure that you don’t get lax in the initial days of your preparation. When you prepare methodically from day 1, you won’t feel the panic or paranoia taking a toll on you in the eleventh hour. Clearing your Group 1 or Group 2 in one go will be much relaxing that way! However, the study plan is not engraved in stone so feel free to make tweaks to it as and when you need.
