CPT Accounts Preparation Tips for the Last 30 Days

Take time to revisit your learnings – Without proper revision, your chances of cracking CPT Accounts is slim. Revising with Practice Manuals and Previous Year Papers will help you to enhance conceptual understanding and will boost your confidence.

Try attempting mercantile law section first – When writing your exam, attempt Mercantile Law first. Attempting questions from this subject is comparatively easy and takes less time. Once this is done, you are now free to attempt the questions of Accountancy. You don’t have to hurry up unnecessarily.

First attempt the known questions – This applies for both Law and Accountancy. This not only helps to manage time but also boosts your confidence. It is always advisable to start writing your exam on a good note.

Practice as much as you can – Together with exam jitters and a ticking clock making silly mistakes while calculating seem to be unavoidable and cost students chunks of marks. Practice more to gain confidence. For an MCQ based exam like CPT, practice equals speed.

Attempt at least one mock test paper – Mock Tests help you to analyze mistakes and rectify them before appearing for exam in real time. It is an important tool to measure your exam preparedness.
