Preparation for CA-Final Exams

  1. Though CA Course, in itself is a self study course, classes provide a special advantage in that students will be able to assimilate the concepts quickly than by way of self study.
  2. Sri Sankara Coaching Centre conducts intensive coaching sessions and short duration batches for students, generally two times a year ending a month before the commencement of CA-Final main examinations.
  3. SSCC also offers model tests and mocks tests for enabling adequate revisions before facing the main examination.
  4. For every subject, it is advisable to use one reference book, which will cover all the topics of the syllabus. Referring to too many books may not be beneficial for the student.

  • Alertness of mind
  • Alertness of body
  • Student should attend all questions. When this is done, the chance of passing the exam improves.
  • Student should not ignore any subject during preparation as a minimum of 40% is required in all subjects to pass the examination.
  • There is no room for Complacency in this course.


General Advice for CA Students:

When studies are planned properly and implemented effectively, the student gains the confidence levels required for the exams.

Higher confidence levels and positive attitude transforms itself into Assured Success

Forget the 4 C’s to become a Chartered Accountant in the minimum time. 4 C’s refer to

  • Cricket
  • Computer (Facebook, twitter, video games etc..)
  • Cell phone
  • Cinema

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 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.
