Tips for Strategic Management :

Preparation Tips for CA IPCC Exam:

SM Tip: Start SM preparation from last chapter to first chapter.

  1. Do Practice Manual first as if once you do it around 60-70% course will be covered. From Practice Manual its quite easy to read topics as they are given question format rather than paragraphs as given in modules. And generally questions get repeated, so prepare those questions thoroughly and you will definitely score in subjects.
  2. Now start reading from Chapter 7. You can read from module as its language is easy.
  3. Do all chapter end questions from module because true & false many times comes out of it. So better to go through that. And there are sometime 4 marks filling the blanks, so for it, just go through the quotation given before starting the chapter. Just go through past papers, you will find those one liners in the form of filling the blanks.

Preparation Tips for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC Exam- 2.Taxation Tips:

You  have to read every concept in income tax paper  & one more thing is total income problems are important, and in every problem you have to make note points, it will impress to valuationer.

In taxation paper preparation for day before exam, start VAT & Service Tax. VAT is easiest topic just read it properly and do practical questions also. After reading from book in last just go through the Practice Manual.

In service tax do properly as there are lots of amendments and please do buy new Practice Manual of Tax from ICAI Branch and do all questions properly from it I am sure there will be many questions straight away from Practice Manual). As you know Service Tax & Vat portion covers 50 marks.

Then come on Income tax portion, start from Business & Profession head, then Capital Gain, then House Property , Salary & other Sources. Later than this do the small chapters, like deduction from GTI, TDS, Set off & Carry forwards etc.

Put the currency symbol other wise u can loss marks.

My sincere advice is don’t start with total income problem in examination because its take more time for completion.

Preparation Tips for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC  Exam 3) AUDITING Tips:

Golden Tip:Remember in Auditing the module’s language is the most important requirement to get good marks. So, read only Study Material and Practice Manuals. And even Practice Manual is enough to get 50~ marks.

In auditing company auditor I & II chapters are very important as they cover around 20 to 30 marks.

>Standards on Auditing (SAs) are also important for e read  2 to 3 times at least. Auditing standard Chapter covers at least 30Marks for the purpose of the exams.

Then later do basic chapters and then Special Audit and after it do Vouching & Verification. As said earlier language is important, so read carefully and remember the typical words.

Preparation Tips for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC Exam- Special Audit Tips:-

You will see a question of 8 marks at least in every Auditing paper, it will come this time also, for sure.

Don’t mug up this topic, Read with an open mind & Understanding that you are a CA & doing the Audit what you would check & How, what should be the Primary docs to get the required information etc ?

And you will find that every Special audit would have say appx 10 points of which 4 – 5 points would be common ( like, The Docs of Formation i.e Memo & A of A / Partnership Deed / Trust deed etc, Check the authorities given as per the doc / Powers / Policies  etc 

Also this being more a practical type of Topic, you will find it interesting.

Excluding such other 5 points would be different with every different entity based on the area of business in which it is. e.g. in case of schools You say check Fees Receipts / Purchase of Books/ Deposits & fines taken from Students, In case of Hotels say how control is kept on the Issue of Food items & provisions to kitchen is maintained, How is the billing control of Rooms maintained etc.

You read all type of special Audits ( 1st do reading carefully with understanding & no mugging (Ratta)  taking 30 mins per audit & you will find that you need not revise it again)

Preparation Tips for CA IPCC Exam:

MOST IMP:- From last 3-4 attempts, Institute is asking only theory questions in Auditing paper, so don’t waste much time on practical problems and read theory portion well.

Preparation Tips for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC Exam 4.)ACCOUNTS:

In accounts I & II subjects very important is accounting standards its around 25 to 35 marks in the subjects.

Amalgamation and Partnership are also the most important chapters, solve atleast 1 some of all the types to get good confidence in this chapters. These can be asked for 24 to 40 marks in each a/cing paper.

Preparation Tips for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC  Exam- 5)COSTING & FM Tips:

In this subject first of all theory part you have to prepare its nearly 32 marks, so just read the practice manual properly, most of the questions will be from it only. Theory will help for practicals also. ( eg ; If you read theory of Labour All methods of calculation of Wages will be understood, Material Formulas will be known, Contract A/c Ways of calculating the Profit will be understood.. So now it is clear Why Theory should be done first, & its Importance in this subject)

If you are too good at Concepts & Practical then only Ignoring thorough study of theory can be thought else for average / bit above average student, Practical with Proper study of theory only can Pass with 50 – 55 marks in this subject.

In costing start with Standard Costing & Marginal costing then later Contact, process, material, labour, overhead and so..

In FM, Capital budgeting & Cost of Capital are very vital chapters do them first, properly.

then leverage , Ratios & Working Capital Management, Cash flow, fund flow and so..
