4 Reasons Why Students Fail To Clear CA-Intermediate Group II in 30 Days
Ignoring ICAI’s study material – Everything that you need to know about clearing CA-Intermediate Group II exams is in the study materials. The study materials are published by ICAI to give students a clear idea of the scope of syllabus for each subject. It delves deep into the concepts and represents them diagrammatically for the benefit of the students. Studying from the study material is the surest way of scoring 60+ in CA-Intermediate Group II.
Ignoring attempt specific inclusions and amendments – As you know that the first question in any paper is a compulsory question of 20 marks. There are high chances for this question to come from amendments and inclusions introduced by ICAI specifically for your attempt.
Neglecting presentation of answers – This is especially true for papers like Auditing where students are required to quote legislations or sections. Quoting sections appropriately will not fetch any additional marks but not quoting them at all or quoting them wrong will take away big chunks of marks from the exam paper.
Illegible working notes – This holds true for practical papers in Group II. Working notes are as important as any other part of your answer. Through the working notes, you can showcase it to your examiner that you have a firm grasp on the concept. If your working notes lack clarity or cleanliness, you lose marks in your exam.
To add to this, our experts are of the opinion that ignoring mock test papers and previous year question papers may prove to be detrimental for students appearing for CA-Intermediate Group II exams. The study planner along with the factors pointed above can guide you to effectively prepare for CA-Intermediate in the last 30 days. These will ensure that you score above 60 in your exam provided that you follow it up with work hard and calculated efforts. Everything said and done, the last thing you would want to do is fall sick before the exams, so take good care of your health even as you prepare for CA-Intermediate Group II exams.
