I have completed my 3 years articleship & i have passed 2nd group of CA Intermediate | CA IPCC in recently declared results of CA Intermediate | CA IPCC (31st july 2015). Now i have a confusion in my mind whether to give one group of final in nov 15 exam or give both group of final in may 16 ?
I want to give 2nd group of final in nov 15 , but i don't understand is 3 months period is enough to prepare for 2nd group?
Please tell whether i go for nov attempt or both group in may 16 ?

In the light of given information by you, i will suggest you to prepare both groups thoroughly and appear for may 2016 exam instead of appearing for nov 2015 in hush hush hush manner or without proper planning and startergy since this is your first attempt in ca final exam.
Benefit of giving both group is that you will be eligible for set off of marks rule which means if you secured 194 say in group 1 and 206 in group at same sitting of ca final exam and securing min of 40 marks in all 8 papers then you get the benefit of set off and you are declared as pass in ca at same attempt.
Another benefit is that you get atleast effectively 9 to 10 months from Aug 2015 to April 2016 for better preparation of all subjects.
Additionally when you are studying for may 2016 you will come to know after nov 2015 exams are held by icai about the feedback of students reagrding thier mistakes made in nov 2015 exams,their stratergy to score exmption in paper,effective time management and overall study plan to pass out in first attempt.
Additionally in this short period of 3 months as a first timmer you will face many difficulties in studies and will have many querries for same if you study on your own so it all needs time for effective study of ca final exam.
