Step by Step Study Plan for November 2018 CA Intermediate

Given that November 2018 CA Intermediate exams are around the corner, students have taken to burning the midnight oil. If you are one of them, you too may be having sleepless nights. Between you feeding your brain with endless information and it forgetting in retaliation, preparation for the upcoming exam is on!

Hey! But did you know that you can clear your CA exam without having to put up with this torture? The long hours of studying are unavoidable but you should not have to lose your mind over it. Cracking CA Intermediate is about effort, hard work and dedication. As long as you start early and plan ahead, you will be just fine.

Let us quickly make a checklist of what all you need to do to meet your exams head on. First, you need to register yourself with the ICAI to be able to appear for CA Intermediate exams in November 2018. If you have not registered yet, now is a good time to do it, before ICAI closes registration for this attempt.

Assuming that you are done with your registration, let’s move to the second thing you need to figure out. By now, you must have decided if you want to appear for the groups together or separately. Both choices have its merits and demerits and the decision is yours to make.

If you have decided to go for both the groups together, you have signed up for some serious studying in the days to come. So, the third and the most important thing that you will need now is a well-knit study plan. That’s exactly what we have to offer you!

Keeping in mind the number of days you have and the extent of syllabus you need to cover for your exam, we have broken down the study plan into three phases.

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 does 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.

While following the study plan, you must remember that it is not engraved in stone. So, feel free to make some tweaks here and there to adjust it according to you. However, should you stick to the plan more or less, you need not worry about clearing CA Intermediate in this attempt. The intensive study pressure may seem to crackle your nerves but we urge you to remain calm. After all, fretting and panicking won’t take you anywhere but a methodical study plan may lead you to score an exemption or even hold a rank in your CA Intermediate. The choice is yours. So make a wise one!
