**Case Laws in CA-Final are very important**, especially in case of Indirect Taxes subject. This is because there are so many case studies in Indirect Taxes and every case study is quite different from the others. Whereas in Direct Taxes, amendments are made in the law itself, therefore, the case studies are not as many as in case of Indirect Taxes. Again in Indirect Taxes, case studies are 'product-based' and generally not applicable globally to all products. In recent exams, atleast 16 marks question - one entire optional question, with four sub-questions each based on a case study, has been asked. And it is pretty sure, that institute will continue this pattern for next exams too. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Which case studies to do? (in order of priority) ------------------------------------------------ **- Those in the 'Select Cases' book issued for your attempt -** The best source is the 'Select Cases' book. Most of the questions, I can say that 90% probability is that questions will be from this book only. The book covers case laws from recent 2-3 years. Generally only these are asked in questions. **- A piece of advice** - If you are done with the case study book, I think that is pretty enough for studying Case Laws. Doing case laws takes a lot of time and therefore, it is not a good idea to completely nail the case law part, but also concentrate on other topics and other subjects as well. In case you have balance time left, only then go for following steps. But it is completely okay, if you don't do the following steps, even if you are aiming for 60+ marks. **- Case Studies in the Practice Manual Questions** - In many practice manual questions there are case studies, these case studies are the second most important. Sometimes one of the question may be as it is from Practice Manual and therefore, those are important. But the chances are very rare. Do it only if you are aiming want to score 75+ marks. **- The well-known Case Studies** - While teaching generally we are taught with the renowned case studies, the coaching tutors use the same and in Indirect Taxes they are the base. But for exam purpose, there won't be any direct questions on them. They are useful only to expand the answers on indirectly related questions, but there are no marks allotted to it. So even if you don't quote the case law, but quote the contents properly, you will get the deserving marks. **- Case Studies in the Study Material** - This is a completely unnecessary part. There are so many case studies in Study Material, that a student will go totally crazy at it, if he/she tries remembering them all. So generally ignore them, that' my advice. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- General Tips: ------------- **- Ignore Case Studies which have already been asked in past exams** - I have never seen a case study being repeated. The case studies are huge in number and the number of questions asked are few relatively, so there is a wide choice available with the paper-setter. Thus, case studies are never repeated. **- Must do Case Studies in Revision Test Papers & related Case Laws** - There is a very high probability that one of the case studies in the Revision Test Papers will be repeated in the question 'as it is' or 'in similar type of question'. So you need to do these case studies properly. **- Case studies are necessary only when question mentions** - "Please quote the case laws, if any, relevant to the case". If the question contains such statement, then it is pretty clear that you have to mention one exact case law that is relevant to the case, and is the central idea of question. Else there aren't any marks for quoting the case law, and merely explaining the contents of case law without its name like in case of renowned case laws, and relating it properly to the question, will fetch you marks. **- Estimated Distribution of Marks** - In above situation, if it is a four marks question, 1 mark is allotted specifically to the name of the case law, probably 2 marks for explaining the contents of case law. And one mark for overall answer. But either the case law or the explanation of case law is wrong, probably all you get a zero - both have to be correct. And then you have to correctly relate it to the question as well. Only then you can score 3 out of 4, one mark is for good answers.
