Whereby make sure that your study direction is right. If you don’t do this, then during the study, you will get confused and forget the previous chapters slowly. Thus, it is a very important to revise the previous study for long-time memory.

3. Avoid the Virtual World

CA IPCC | Intermediate study plan:I am not saying to leave the internet, use it only for your study purpose, not for Whatsapp, Facebook, etc. According to an old saying, All thing holds some bad property and some good property, everything depends on us, that what do we adopt and left. If you have good properties then you can rise otherwise you fall. Therefore, use the internet for searching previous exam papers of IPCC and related things.

6. Set Small Target

CA IPCC | Intermediate study plan:I would like to describe this point with an old saying, “Big journey starts with a small step”. This sentence says that don’t prepare for the IPCC in a month. From starting you should study in the right manner. Make your small target and complete them and understand the basic concept of the subjects. First of all set a goal that 5 chapters will be completed in the first month and next 5 chapters in next month and then revise all.

7. Take a Short Rest

CA IPCC | Intermediate study plan: Shouldn’t read continuously as our mind require relaxation, so you should take rest in between your study. Take a rest as a movie, outing, and dinner with friends and family. If we continuous study and no take a break then, our mind’s capturing power will destroy slowly as medical science says.
