topper3CA Intermediate | CA IPCC May 2015 First Ranker Tanu Garg Interview

Can you describe your feeling at this moment?

I am feeling on top of the world (Smiles). I can’t describe it in words.

What were your first reactions when you heard this news that you are AIR Rank 1 & what was your parent’s reaction when they heard the big news?
I was screaming (smiles) and started crying. My parents were also very happy. Actually, they  didn’t believe initially whether I was telling the truth that I scored 1st rank and confirmed twice. I could see big smile on their face.

And what was that big emotional moment at that time?
The emotional moment was when my teacher told me that Tanu you did the hard work and your hard work paid off. That was a very proud feeling. I didn’t expect 1st rank and I was very happy

How important this is for you?
It is very important for me. Actually, I always get rank in academics but never got first rank. So this was my dream and I have always wanted that I should get 1st rank once. I didn’t know that I will get this in IPCC only and I feel lucky that I got it.

Now you are heading towards CA Final, so expectations from everyone must be very high?
Actually the hopes are very high now; expecting me to continue it but I know it would be a very tough task for me to do that. But I will put all my efforts and hard work to fulfil those hopes.

We are very sure that you would be able to pull that off. So, who guided you in this whole journey, whom you would like to thank?
My mother, she has done a lot for me. When I used to wake up she used to wake-up at the same time and when I used to sleep she used to sleep at the same time. She is the one who supported me and took care of me all this time.

So how did you achieve this can you share your strategy with us – how did you prepare, what was your time table before and during the exams?
I have spoken with many students and what I have noticed is that they were all focussing on other refreshers and other authors. But, I only focussed on study materials and practice manual provided by the institute. So, I only focused on study material provided by the institute and I strongly suggest other students that they should follow study material provided by the institute more other than the extra books of refreshers of other authors.My time table was that – I used to wake up at 6 in the morning and continue it till 10 or 11 o’clock at night and for the last one month, I slept for only 4 to 5 hours a day. I revised the whole syllabus more than thrice. For the initial 4 to 5 months I used to study in bits and for the last 4 months (from January to April), I revised the whole syllabus thrice.

As you said that you slept for less hours, so what did you do to cope up with that stress which comes along?
Actually, my friends are very good. We used to chat on whatsapp for a few minutes and that worked as a good stress buster for me. Small talks and support of your friends give you that much needed break and lighten your mood. One never should go in isolation while studying as that brings more stress I feel.

AIR 2 is also from your city and is your friend. How this happened?
Actually, we did the coaching from the same institute and our study patterns were quite similar (smiles). We are good friends and we studied together. I am happy for her as well

And what is the most important thing one should keep in mind while attempting the exam and during exams?
CA papers are very lengthy. So from that initial point only you have to maintain the speed. Also the presentation of the paper is very important. What I have noticed and what my teachers have told me that in CA exams you have to be write very specific and to the point. It’s useless in writing lengthy answers, so one should project only the main keywords while writing one’s answer and it should be to the point and directly addressing the question.What is your strategy for Articleship and CA Final study?
Actually, I haven’t thought of it yet. I am still grasping it.I am not but will surely register soon.

What would be your message to our members?
Work hard and your hard work will definitely pay off. Never ever think that you can’t do that or this. Plan your strategy and make sure you execute it well.

CA Intermediate | CA IPCC May 2015 First Ranker Gunjan Garg Interview

Can you describe your feeling at this moment?
I can’t express my feelings at this moment. I am feeling on top of the world. I am very happy to see my parents proud of me.

What was your first reaction when you heard the news that you are the AIR 2nd rank and what was your parent’s reaction when they heard the big news from you?
When I heard about it, I couldn’t believe it. I have never expected a second rank. My parents were so happy. They said that you did it and hugged me and blessed me. I could see their dazzling eyes and big smile.

What was the most emotional moment at that time?
The most emotional moment was when my grandmother hugged me tightly on hearing this news.

AIR 1st rank is also from your city do you know her and if yes, was it competitive?
No, not at all. In fact, She is my friend and we both studied together. There was no competition. We shared everything study related with each other – Something which I knew, I shared it with everybody, something they knew, they shared it. So, there was no such competitive feeling at all and everyone was very supportive to each other. That competitive feeling never came to our mind and we were good friends.

So, were you expecting a rank?
Yaa, I was expecting a rank but it wasn’t in top 20.

What did you do to cope up with the pressure which you had?
Actually, we friends have great bonding so if anyone will feel pressurised the other one will help to redeem that pressure and talk it out. Whenever I felt pressure I use to call my family or friends to speak to them for a while and get guidance. And they used to keep motivating me by saying that you have scored well in CPT you got a 4th rank in CPT so you can do it again and would do fine. So, there was also motivation from my institute. So, it was not so difficult.Also, It’s just that the pressure or the praise from friends kept pushing and encouraging me. It never made me down. I will also keep pushing myself by believing that I can do it. It’s really important to have that faith in yourself. So, feel good and work hard. Pressure and stress would always be there in life and if you stay positive you can handle the stress.

Very True! So, who guided you in this whole journey? Any special mention whom you would like to thank?
I have 2-3 persons in family whom I would like to thank. First of all, my aunt (My dad’s sister) and my friend Aviral and among teachers- RC Sharma Sir.

Can you share your strategy which you followed before the exam and during the exams? How did you prepare?
After CPT results, from July till December, we attended some sessions of lectures and I just use to revise the same at home and by December with this bit-by-bit study I completed (say) 30% of the syllabus, I learnt till December for each subject in pieces. Then from January onwards, from January till April, it was tight 14 hours schedule for me, from morning till night and I use to sit for 1 subject at a stretch, use to complete it, then revised it up and then moved to pick on the next subject. This way I did the whole 100% course in 2 months i.e. by Feb end. Then again, I took the full course, revised it up and again 100% revision was done by March end and from one more revision I did in April. And finally the 4th time I revised the whole syllabus before and during the exams.

What is the most important thing that one should keep in mind during the exams?
The most important thing is the time management because the papers are bit lengthy. You run out of time. The important thing is that when you attempt one question, just check out the time. If it takes half an hour, then it’s ok, if it’s more than half an hour, you should do the next question, keeping in mind that you have to compensate the time because you have 3 hours and you have 6 questions. So, you should see that you give each question, half an hour only. This way you can complete your whole paper with a balanced approach.

What is your strategy for articleship and CA Final?
I want to do Articleship in a good firm. And I would just try to do well in CA final as well.

I hope that you have big plans to celebrate. What would be your message to your fellow students?
Work hard and congratulations to those who have cleared and who couldn’t clear to them I would say- Don’t be sad for your failure. Just keep trying. CA gives you unlimited attempts. So, you just don’t stop. Keep moving.

Wonderful! Thanks Gunjan and with these lovely words we conclude this conversation!!
Thank you. Thank you so much !!
