Using CA/CS/CMA papers is not an easy task. It requires an in-depth study, deep interest, theoretical, conceptual and practical understanding of the concepts.

Don’t do these mistakes in CA CMA CS Exams | Indepth discussion of some aspects of CA CS CMA Paper

As a student you should not do these mistakes in CA CMA CS Exams.

  • Don’t strain yourself physically and mentally – Presence of mind and physical fitness is very important as you need to be very much attentive and confident for 3 hours. So, don’t strain yourself too much both physically and mentally before and during the examination time.
  • Don’t compromise on sleep and practice balanced diet – Always remember before and during the exams have good sleep at least for 5 hours daily and have a good timely meal and a balanced diet.
  • Always don’t underestimate yourself – What ever your preparation may be don’t underestimate yourself. Be always confident and don’t go with what has happened in the past.
  • Don’t ever be late to the examination hall

    Always be 15 minutes before schedule time in examination hall. You get sufficient time in searching for your registration number, hearing to the important instructions, making yourself comfortable and removing stress to some extent before the exams.

  • Don’t yield your ears to rumors – Many of the students have shared with me different sort of rumors like change in question paper pattern, important questions etc. before the exams but, my advice is that don’t yield your ears to such rumors. Professional exams are conducted by institute with high professional standard and if any changes are there then please refer the official website of the institutes for the information.

  • Will I get more marks by writing something extra / out of the syllabus BUT which is relevant to the paper?

The answer is ‘YES’.  Compared to University examinations which are very redundant and lack any novelty, Professional examinations need you to be always dynamic and updated with the latest and the best. Each institute provides study material for its students to read and learn from. The study material is quite indepth and covers the entire content of the course. However, this does not , at all mean that you cannot refer to something more. We all know that we do not need to refer each and every word of the study material to cover the entire syllabus. We just have to have an indepth view of the syllabus. Therefore you can easily write content in the papers which are relevant to the paper. The more you read about case laws, case studies and articles, the more sharper your answering skills become. Many people have the tendency to study in the final moments which sadly, does not give them a chance to study something more. Therefore what they end up with is repeating something that has already been given in the study material. There is a reason why professional institute use the word ‘study material’ instead of normal ‘textbooks’. This is because, there is no cap on the expanse of these study material. They are inclusive.

  • Is there any specific length of an answer?

What is the exact length of answer that one should write? The answer is ‘NO’. There cannot be a specific length for an answer as we just tend to comb in everything that we remember and which is related to the question into the answer paper. This is one of the tendency that cost you some marks in the papers. Exact length of an answer is therefore a subjective term. While writing theory papers, the first four-five lines of your answer should be just perfect. If these lines are perfect and cover the most important aspect of the question, the rest part of your answer gets the due attention from paper checker. Therefore try using very lucid and sharp words in the first 4-5 lines of your answer to avoid lack of attention from the examiner. Having read some of the interviews of UPSC toppers (which is the toughest exam in the world, and yes, tougher than CA 🙂 ), especially that of the exceptional Mr. Gaurav Agrawal, UPSC #1 rank (A prolific person who cleared IIT, IIM and IPS and worked in Investment banking at Citi), it is easy to conclude that one can write the ‘best’ answer within the limits set by the institute.

  • Tables/ Tree Diagrams/ Diagrams when needed? Can they be done away with?

This question will matter only when 3 hours are enough for you to finish the entire paper satisfactorily. Let us admit, Most of us do not even get a chance to finish attempting the entire paper. Are diagrams/ illustrative tables required? The answer can be a mixed one. If one is just adamant about diagrams & tables, he can draw diagram and table for each and every type of answer. On the other hand, if one wants to avoid diagrams, he can do so quite easily. Therefore this question is a very subjective one, depending upon what is the subject matter that you are dealing with. There are some answers (for eg- types of assessment under the Income tax act etc) which can be best presented with the help of diagram / tree diagram. Therefore the final call will be your own. Topics that have too much branching can be addressed by a neatly drawn diagram/ illustrative table in the exam.

  •  The same age old question – I do not remember section numbers etc. To what extent will it affect my performance in examination?

Section numbers in Law and tax papers are important. However, if you fail to properly remember Section numbers despite giving it a best try (which can happen with many), You can skip it in entirety,
