Preparation Strategy for CA Exams amidst COVID-19 Pandemic
COVID-19 has shaken the entire nation to its core. The series of lockdowns imposed by the authorities have forced everyone to stay indoors. All the educational institutes have been shut till further notice and CA aspirants are worried about the CA exams and their preparation. CA May 2021 exams have already been postponed due to a sudden rise in the COVID cases in the country.
During this unprecedented time, you, as a CA student, require a proper preparation strategy to ace CA exams. And that is exactly what we will tell you in this blog. To help you cope up with your CA exam preparation, we have come up with a simple preparation strategy that will benefit you.
Preparation Strategy Explained
We have listed some important rules here which you must follow to effectively prepare for the CA exams at home amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Follow these to make your preparation days before the exams count and to get the desired results:
Have a Private Space for Studies
This is like laying a foundation stone for effective preparation. Before you start preparing for CA exams, choose a space that is comfortable and free from distractions. Why? Having a personal study space helps in better concentration which subsequently helps in better retention of topics.
Follow your Study Schedule Religiously:
When you have made a study schedule for CA exam preparation, make sure you stick to it till the end. Be consistent with your study schedule and it will eventually help you in better preparation. Don’t procrastinate! Make the most of the available time that you have for your exam preparation.
Avoid Social Media:
Social media is a pleasurable distraction, but it should be avoided till the extent possible. Rather than wasting time on Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms, you should consider spending time learning and watching online classes on apps like OnePrep.
Revise from self-prepared notes:
Self-prepared notes are the ultimate study material. They help in having a quick revision and save you a lot of precious time. Therefore, avoid going back to the main books. Rather, revise from the notes that you have compiled until now. Concentrate on revising high yield, important topics that you’ve previously bookmarked.
Practice MTPs and RTPs:
Practice makes perfect. Take mock tests every day, two or three in a day, if possible. Take the exam as if you are taking the real one i.e. without breaks and at a stretch. This will help you to build stamina and will make you better prepared for the real exam. It will help you improve your speed and time management. Also, refer to the latest Revision Test Papers and try solving them often.
Refer to Previous Year Papers:
Examiners often have favourite topics that are frequently asked over the years. Going through the previous year exam papers will help you recognize these patterns so that you can concentrate on the right topics.
To know why you should solve MTPs, RTPs, and PYPs, during CA exam preparation, read: How important are PYP, MTP & RTP for acing the CA exams.
Analyze your Preparation every day:
Be accountable and responsible for yourself. Analyze your exam preparation regularly at the end of the day. Do a SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis. Proper analysis will not only help you to work on your weak areas, but will also help you to effectively prepare for CA exams.
Check Your Sleep Cycle:
If you have a habit of staying up late at night and sleeping in until late in the mornings, this is the time when you should start getting your sleep cycle back to order. You should start going to bed early and getting up on time so that by the time you approach the last few days of the exams, your body is used to staying alert and awake during the morning hours.
We hope these tips will assist you in your CA exam preparation during these tough times.
