Hi, I have a great confusion regarding how can i present my answers so that can get maximum marks
Remember, the exams are not designed to trick you. Don’t panic on the day of your exam or this brain freeze could mean that you get a lower grade that you truly deserve. Convince yourself that you know how to answer exam questions and you are almost there.
Don’t just jump into writing your answer. Take the first few minutes to plan the structure of your answer which will save you time when you are delving into meaty parts. A lot of students see a conclusion as a final sentence to finish the piece off. A strong conclusion gives an A grade student the chance to shine by bringing everything together and fortifying their opinion.
Smart students can still make the mistake of handing their answer book in without checking through what they have written. Proofread your answers as much as you can to correct any spelling mistakes and add any extra comments you think are worth mentioning.
You will be surprised what you can spot in those last few minutes. This is your last chance to throw in that quotation, list other relevant points or even draw a quick diagram. Now is not the time to drop your game, show the examiner what you’re made of!
Dear Friend, --1.Read the question at least twice to be sure what exactly is asked. CA final questions are like a riddle, language used is tricky. Some times I feel like one's English is getting tested and not the knowledge of subject. So the first step is to restate the question in short as you have understood. 2. If you know the answer, give it in the second line and then explain the steps. 3. If you do not know the answer, leave two blank lines, write the steps and write the conclusion later in those two lines. 4. If you know the answer and the steps, write precisely. No need for explanation. If you do not know the answer, write steps in details you may come to correct conclusion. 5. Good handwriting, good language and neat and cleanliness can never be over emphasized. Writing practice is a MUST. Use words/ phrases/ case laws from the study material provided by Institute. 6. Attempt all required number of questions. Manage time accordingly. 7. Never write anything other than an answer.. like appeal to the examiner etc. Never bluff. If you don't know the answer, re-read the question, you might have misunderstood it. In CA all subjects and topics are interlinked. You may get a clue while writing other answers. .
1. Use tables, bullets to answer to the questions. Underline important points only with blue/black pen. 2. Don’t start your paper with 1st question. First answer the question which you know best. 3. Answer the questions with due emphasis on provision of the law – support your answer/conclusion with proper reasoning. Answer should be based on relevant legal provisions or judicial pronouncements. If you are 200% sure regarding the name of the case law, then only mention the name else simply write” it has been judicially held that….” 4. Quote relevant section numbers/ case laws: Quoting section would give additional credit of 0.5 to 1 marks. Kindly mention the same only if you are are 200% sure regarding the name of the case law, then only mention the name else simply write” it has been judicially held that….” Or “according to relevant sections and provisions of the……. Act “. 5. Give assumptions: if questions seems to be incomplete or might have an alternate answer give your answer clearly stating what you have presumed. 6. Answer in commensurate the marks : Don’t write an essay of say 200 words answer for a 2 marks answer or merely state true or false and close your answer in 30 – 40 words for a 5 marks answer. Lengthy answers or answers running in pages does not always fetch more marks 7. Do not use short forms – like CA 2013 for Companies Act, 2013. 8. Present your answer well – answer should be neat and legible. Answer all parts of the question one another. If you don’t know answer for any sub part then leave page for that and go to attempt next question. The left one to be attempted once you are through with the known ones. 9. Follow instructions given on the cover page of answer paper. Last but not the least - Go through - Summary of Examiners’ Comments - Final Course once at icai.org/post.html?post_id=10174 - here you would find the observations of the examiners with particular term of question paper. Currently the same is available for Nov 14 question paper. All the best, Regards.
1st of all write answer direct and to the point. U should alwaz know that CA is not any university exam to fill up pages. so U should be direct to answer and u should always try to write the answer pointwise wherever applicable. Do go through Practice Manual, Suggested Answers and Scanners to kno what content does an answer need and cover up ur answer accordingly. Write section no.or case name only when u r sure to it otherwise avoid els u may loos marks. So its very important to write only what is correctly known to u and u r sure about it. Never get in hassale while answering els u may not provide a proper sequence to ur answers which hammers ur presentation, Always start attempting those questions 1st which u have studied well and u r confident to answer.ok ALL THE BEST. WISH U A POSITIVE SUCCESS AHEAD..

Hi, here are some tips to write ca final exams 1.Any answer should be written in point format. Maximum 2 sentences in one point. No answers in long paragraphs. You are writing an answer, not an essay! PREFERABLY WRITE ONE ANSWER ON ONE PAGE, EVEN IF YOU HAVE USED JUST HALF OF THE PAGE. because one answer on one page gives a complete picture of the answer. Every point has a few crux words. Underline them wherever possible. This makes paper checker’s work easier. 2.Impress the examiner by making him know that you know the answers, impress that you are confident by underlining the crux words. 3.This leads to the difference between 1 mark and 1 and half mark. Cumulatively THIS MAKES A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 39 AND 40 OR 59 AND 60 EFFECTIVELY making a DIFFERENCE OF 6 MONTHS!! Impress the examiner that you know professional words, be it your maxims for your Corporate law papers, writing ‘Apex Court of India: Supreme Court’ or ‘Honorable Supreme Court’ similar with Honorable High Court. It’s a professional show-off you may say. 4.If you have spare time (which is almost impossible, but still if you do) underline after every answers. Double underline after every question set. Basic again I know, but effective. Trust me on this, I’ll explain later why *. 5.If you remember the name of the case law, well and good, if you don’t but still know which Court (HC/SC/ITAT), do quote it. TELLING THE EXAMINER THAT YOU KNOW (SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING) Same with Allied laws, you can definitely guess the Act the question is asked from. Be it Negotiable Instruments Act, Partnership Act, SOGA, Banking/Insurance Acts, Interpretation of Statutes etc. Quoting the Act with the year 1981, 1932 etc. is necessary. Don’t focus on quantity, focus on quality content. Reminder: These are not your B.Com papers. 6.IF you are not sure of the section, Clause, Auditing/Accounting Standard, PLEASE DON’T QUOTE IT. Please don’t bluff. 7.Knowing it is important and do quote it if you know, but please don’t take a guess or else you’ll be sure of your next attempt. Try to attempt in FACTS, ANSWER, CONCLUSION format. First the facts in brief, then what the facts lead to, the actual answer, and then the conclusion. 8. use sections and standards in every answer if u know. Hope this helps u Thank You
Presentation to exam is an art. We have a small discussion about how to present the answer to the exam since a good presentation will help you to create a better impression with the paper valuer and good mark. We are going to write CA exam being a professional exam. This is a medium of communication and communication must be effective. Useful tips to make better presented answers a) Convert the paragraph answers in to points. Give a good margin number for each Point. Give a suitable heading the points wherever required. b) Heading of the points must be a key word. By refereeing the key words, examiner must be able to perceive the content of points. c) Except for definition, try to write own your words and own style. This makes your answer sheet more valuable. d) Some cases, you have to start with good introduction. Introduction is a gateway and which should give in to light the content that you are going to discuss. Apart from introduction, there require a good conclusion. e) Your answer must be readable to the examiner. This doe not implies you have to possess a good hand writing rather a bad handwriting with readable form will serve the purpose. f) For practical questions, correlate and inter link the applicable concepts in a cohesive and comprehensive manner. Apart from your own value added points also serve the purpose. g) Give a clear working and other notes wherever it requires. Do not a) Never try to add irrelevant point and content since these will create a negative impressions. Never try to add the point by applying Gas. b) Never give irrelevant heading to the points. This will affect adverse. Never quote a wrong section number or SA number. If you don’t know, better ignore this number.
