3291 Views (0)

Have you ever stayed up till late at night trying to stretch your brains beyond its limits? Remember the times when you fed your brain with endless information, hoping against hope that it will retain all that for at least 24 hours? Did no one tell you yet that you can still clear your CA Exam without having to go through any of this self-imposed torture? It’s true, the long hours of studying are unavoidable but that’s no reason why you should have to lose your mind over it.

Cracking CA Intermediate is about effort, hard work and dedication. There’s no need for donkeywork as long as you wake up early and plan your day. Let’s say you wake up just 240 days before your exam, only to realize that you are lost and you don’t know where to start! You still stand a good chance. Follow the schedule given below, and you will soon realize that you have enough time to put up a good fight.  Nothing beats the power of a well-knit study plan, and that’s what we have for you here. Come on! Keep scrolling, don’t stop till you hit the bottom of this blog post. We are sure you will find a way out.

a)   Divide the Study Plan in 3 Phases

(i)   Learning Phase- 180 Days

(ii)   Review Phase- 45 Days

c)       Daily Review Your Previous Study before Starting Something Fresh Next Day

d)      Judicious use of Internet/Mobile

e)      Increase Your Hours of Study on Weekends and Holidays

f)       Go for Qualitative Study with a Healthy Mind

All said and done, it does not matter whether you appear for the groups one by one or you attempt both the groups together. Do you have your graduation studies lined up alongside?  That’s not a problem either. Everything is manageable as long as you don’t panic. And why do you even need to stress out if you have just the perfect plan to follow. You could spend several hours of a day thinking, fretting, panicking, wondering and even fearing. But you could also use up those hours to prepare methodically and score more in your CA Intermediate exam and clear it in this attempt. The choice is yours. So make a wise one!
