How did you clear both groups in a single attempt (CA)?


Answer ( 1 )

  1. Please briefly explain why you feel this answer should be reported .


    I don’t know why I am answering this question this late, I’ve been here for more than 2 months debating with strangers about astrology(Akshay Jain’s answer to Do you believe in astrology, and why or why not? ), when I could have written about this!!

    1. Accountancy
      1. AS: Stick to the module for the theoretical ones, learn the definitions that are repeatedly used in the answers and try and use them in the answers that you write. 3 out of 6 questions in the AS section are directly from the module, ensure that those questions are done, whether subjective or practical.
      2. Other Chapters: There’s this great way to learn from your mistakes. Pay full attention to the first sum that is taught and then start doing the subsequent questions by yourself, for the love of everything that’s holy, don’t concern yourself with the paper wastage in committing mistakes!! There are other ways to save the environment. If you commit mistakes in the initial stages you’ll form a stronger base.
    2. Corporate and Other Laws
      1. Corporate Law: The only theory subject I recommend making notes for is Law. First and foremost understand the provisions with examples, then make your notes using the key phrases and filling in the blanks with your own words and use these notes for all further revisions. In Law paper, too many questions are verbatim from the module so ensure going through them.
      2. Other Law: The last two chapters, General Clauses Act and Interpretation of Statutes, are a royal pain in the ass. Skip the technicalities here or you’ll be stuck in the quagmire with no way out, no need to learn the key phrases just get an understanding and write it out in your own words. If one attempts the questions correctly, the exposure to these chapters wouldn’t be more than 8–10 marks and that’s no reason to lose your sleep over.
    3. Costing
      1. People either outright hate this subject or love it. That stems from the fact whether you understand the underlying fundamentals or not. The approach to this subject is similar to accountancy. Costing paper, except the last attempt and the one before that, has most of the questions straight from the module.
    4. Taxation
      1. Direct Taxes: The approach is a combination of accountancy and law, here too you learn from doing mistakes and revise the entire subject from your notes. I learned most of my DT by committing mistakes, notes could be a life saver here I had my entire DT in a single notebook.
      2. Indirect Taxes: Hands down the easiest thing in Inter CA, just go through the module and practice by solving the questions.
    5. Advance Accountancy:
      1. AS: Similar to Paper 1
      2. Other Chapters: Most format based chapters are included in here wherein you need to prepare the format, put in the figures, and cash in the marks. Prepare by making blank formats and learning the sequence of things, the remaining things are similar to paper 1
    6. Auditing: This holds such a special (not) place in my heart that it deserves a separate answer.Akshay Jain’s answer to How would one approach audit subject for inter-CA?
    7. EIS/SM: That too follows a similar approach
    8. FM and ECO:
      1. Another one of my favorite subjects is FM, it follows a similar approach as Costing. FM paper still continues to have the majority portion from the module.
      2. Economics: This is covered in a separate answer, Akshay Jain’s answer to How should I prepare for economics for finance for the intermediate exam in order to score good marks in it?

    Here’s a little something on note-making, Akshay Jain’s answer to How do I take notes for a CA inter?
