Hi I am planning to write CA exam. Can I know, CA Intermediate | CA IPCC may 2015 topper Tanu Grag interview?
CA Intermediate | CA IPCC MAY 2015 TOPPER-TANU GARG TIPS FROM HER INTERVIEW, So how did you achieve this can you share your strategy with us – how did you prepare, what was your time table before and during the exams? I have spoken with many students and what I have noticed is that they were all focussing on other refreshers and other authors. But, I only focussed on study materials and practice manual provided by the institute. So, I only focused on study material provided by the institute and I strongly suggest other students that they should follow study material provided by the institute more other than the extra books of refreshers of other authors. My time table was that – I used to wake up at 6 in the morning and continue it till 10 or 11 o’clock at night and for the last one month, I slept for only 4 to 5 hours a day. I revised the whole syllabus more than thrice. For the initial 4 to 5 months I used to study in bits and for the last 4 months (from January to April), I revised the whole syllabus thrice. As you said that you slept for less hours, so what did you do to cope up with that stress which comes along? Actually, my friends are very good. We used to chat on whatsapp for a few minutes and that worked as a good stress buster for me. Small talks and support of your friends give you that much needed break and lighten your mood. One never should go in isolation while studying as that brings more stress I feel. AIR 2 is also from your city and is your friend. How this happened? Actually, we did the coaching from the same institute and our study patterns were quite similar (smiles). We are good friends and we studied together. I am happy for her as well And what is the most important thing one should keep in mind while attempting the exam and during exams? CA papers are very lengthy. So from that initial point only you have to maintain the speed. Also the presentation of the paper is very important. What I have noticed and what my teachers have told me that in CA exams you have to be write very specific and to the point. It’s useless in writing lengthy answers, so one should project only the main keywords while writing one’s answer and it should be to the point and directly addressing the question. What is your strategy for Articleship and CA Final study? Actually, I haven’t thought of it yet. I am still grasping it. I am not but will surely register soon. What would be your message to present IPCC students? Work hard and your hard work will definitely pay off. Never ever think that you can’t do that or this. Plan your strategy and make sure you execute it well.
