You should learn various provisions of the Contract Act, Sale of Goods Act, Negotiable Instrument Act, Partnership Act and Law of Torts. Make clear concept of the explanation of certain legal terminologies and their implications. You should also understand the implications of some important cases related to various acts.

It is about the study of national economics and of the government policies taken up for affecting the economic performance of a nation.

You will have to make a quick study of various chapters such as business cycles, policy, long-run economic performance, Productivity, consumption, saving and investment. Make your own notes on the important aspects of various chapters.

4. Quantitative Aptitude

This subject may seem little difficult to you if you are not very good at math. But, Statistics will be easier than math.

So, while preparing for your CA Foundation | CA CPT, you can concentrate on Statistics by conceptualizing the theory and work out problems from averages, correlation and regression, differentiation and integration and theoretical distribution.

5.Non-Attempting the Whole

While appearing the CA Foundation | CA CPT, don’t keep in mind that you will attempt the whole 100 questions assigned in the examination paper.

Rather keep in mind that you are to score a minimum of 30% in all the subjects. And if you give a wrong answer, you are losing 0.25 on the whole and a cumulative of wrong answers may drag you down the minimum scoring.

6. Reading Method

Read fast, the first page for five minutes and then read slowly to comprehend the topic clearly. After completion of a chapter in this way, attempt all the questions given in the book and then check the answers given.

Give tick mark on the correct answers which need not be attempted again. Put cross marks on incorrect answers which need to be revised

7. Revision Method

While making the revision, take up those areas where you have answered incorrectly at your first attempt. This process of revision should be repeated till you are fully-versed and correct on a particular chapter.

8. Practice Method

Practice to solve the past year questions and the probable questions for your ensuing CA Foundation | CA CPT. It is here that you may experience difficulties. In that case, join a reputed CA coaching institute.

6 Most Avoidable Mistakes While Attempting CA Foundation | CA CPT Exams

1. Light Mental Attitude

You should always keep your mind in an examination mode and focus all your mental faculties and physical activities on preparation for the examination. The seriousness that you put on the examination will arouse in you, a self-motivation that will take you a long way in achieving your goal. Avoid procrastination at all times.

2. Lack of or Proper Planning

If you are not properly planning for your preparation, you are deliberately ‘planning to fail’ and God too can’t help you. It is carelessness, lack of seriousness and attitude of procrastination that combined together drag you towards your failure.

When you are planning, you take into consideration, your future action and your organized efforts will make the examination to yield before you. Take your CA Foundation | CA CPT as a ‘war’ and go prepared to the war field, well-armed and with well-thought out strategy.

3. Over-dependence on Self-Study

Self study is the basic requirement for passing the CA Foundation | CA CPT examination. But the common mistake students resort to is that because of their over-confidence, they avoid, going in for an external source. As a result, a substantial amount of time and energy is consumed in conceptualizing the subjects and searching out the probable questions. Guidance is key to success.

4. Ignoring the External Sources

It is expected of a CA Foundation | CA CPT student to go through the study materials provided by ICAI so as to get a clear concept of different subjects and also to know about the type of questions that you have to attempt in your exam.

But the study materials and the RTP and MTP provided by ICAI cannot be so exhaustive as to help you to correctly attend to the MCQs that change from year to year. It is here that you need to go in for some dependable external sources that can be provided by a CA Coaching Institute only.

5. Indulgence in Distracting Elements

Socialization, social media, running after seniors or exam-mates for advice and guidance, indulgence in watching TV or movies, unwanted talks and discussions are the weeds in your garden of your CA Foundation | CA CPT.

Root them out and apply such saved times on your preparation. In addition to these external weeds, you create some by yourself; in the shape of depression, phobias, apprehension, fear, frustration and tension. Put a “No Entry” sign board for them. Meditation, yoga and pranayam will help you a lot in achieving good results in this respect.

6. Lack of prioritization

Sometimes, students become negligent in attending their coaching classes which may be due to shear carelessness or due to giving priority to other unimportant work like social engagement.

It may be also due to irrational thought; “let it go, I’ll relax today”. Once given the scope, such negligence may become habitual. So, you must start your serious and full-fledged study right from ‘day one’, after you have registered with ICAI for your CA Foundation | CA CPT examination.

Just like the negative marking of 0.25 for wrong answers in CA Foundation | CA CPT, you will be losing from the probability factor of success in your CA Foundation | CA CPT for every ‘don’t’ point you resort to.

So, just as you give importance to the do’ points for success, you should give equal importance to the likely mistakes that you may resort to; either inadvertently or deliberately.
