Minimum of 120 correct answers:
Since the pass mark is 50% in the CPT Exams, the student should answer a minimum of 120 questions correctly, to be on the safer side. Even if the answers to the balance 80 questions turn out to be wrong, the student can still pass the CPT exam as shown below:
120 correct answers x 1 mark each = 120 marks
Less: Negative marks for 80 wrong answers = 80 x 0.25 = (20 marks)
Answer a question only if you are sure of whether it is correct. Do not do mere ticking and end up in a failure on account of negative marking.
Student should not ignore any subject during preparation as a minimum of 30% is required in all sections to pass the examination.
The marks obtained in the CPT exams will provide confidence to the student to prepare academically well for the subsequent IPC and Final stages. However, he should not get lost in the glory of success in CPT exams.
There is no room for Complacency in this course.

Forget the 4 C’s to become a Chartered Accountant in the minimum time. 4 C’s refer to
• Computer (Facebook, twitter, video games etc..)
• Cell phonev
Spending time qualitatively is more important that the amount of time spent on studies.
Relaxation is necessary but getting carried away in the company of friends and cultural activities will not help you to clear the India’s second toughest examination.
Students should follow healthy eating and sleeping habits in order to stay alert while preparing for exams.
It is advisable to have sound sleep on the date before the examination to avoid complacency and tiredness inside the exam hall.
Don’t get misguided by your seniors who are still at Inter or final level. Always go for guidance only from a Qualified Chartered Accountant.
Please be safeguarded from the students who are yet to qualify and call themselves as volunteers of other coaching institutions. We have found out that they are the primary reason for many students’ failure in the exam.
