The journey to become a Chartered Accountant is a long one and the path is strewn with obstacles aplenty. If you have successfully cleared the Common Proficiency Test (CPT) and the Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) then you have to give yourself a big pat on your back. CA Entrance Coaching in Kolkata is one of the best in the country. This year itself suggestion of the top coaching centres matched the 95% of the question papers. So if you have done well, a good part of the credit also goes to your coaching institute.
But what you have to note is that the big one, that is, the final CA exam still awaits you. So you can’t be lethargic at all. You must keep on striving hard to reach the top if you want to come out of the final round with flying colours.
The exam takes place twice every year. The results of the exam that took place in the month of May is about to come out soon. The next installation of the same is scheduled to be during the first two weeks of November. There are primarily two groups of subjects on which students are evaluated. There is usually an interval of one or two days between two exam dates.
Group A consists of four subjects. They are:
- Financial Reporting
- Strategic Financial Management
- Advanced Auditing and Professional Ethics
- Corporate and Allied Laws.
Group B too has four subjects under it. They are:
- Advanced Management Accounting
- Information Systems Control and Audit
- Direct Tax Laws
- Indirect Tax Laws.
As you can see, the scope of the entire syllabus is rather vast and you have to invest a lot of energy and concentration on each of them. An analysis of this year’s question papers shows us that only textual knowledge is not enough. This means last minute cramming and temporary memorisation skills won’t work at all. Your concepts need to be crystal clear for you to answer the maximum number of questions correctly.
It may seem like a daunting task, but if you try hard enough you can easily get there!
