Select a Proper Coaching Institute

But similarly, if the students join the coaching, the same concept will be completed within a few hours. Also, they will also complete the CA Foundation course according to the exam dates so that you have enough time for self-study. So, select good institutes for your CA Foundation preparation.
Do At least 2-3 times revisions.
Revision is an essential part of the entire CA Foundation preparation. So, all candidates must revise the topics that they complete. Also, do not just wait for the last revisions. Students can also start revising after completing a particular topic. The candidates can divide the revisions into three parts, monthly, weekly, and daily. These three divisions of the revision will help the students to revise each topic at least three times.
Study Tips for the Last One Month
As soon as the last exam for the CA Foundation starts, the students need to become more vigilant about their marks and the revisions. So, with the beginning of the previous month, the speed of the revision of the CA Foundation Exam needs to be doubled. So, let us go through some crucial steps that can help you in the last month before the exam.
- The revision of the students must start with the easy and the scoring topics and then move towards the difficult or the lengthy topics.
- Students must focus on the self-analysis part during the last month. They should solve the entire mock tests or the revision questions and then analyze the facts and figures. This will let the student know the level of their preparation.
- The candidates need to break their time into equal portions for the revision of each subject. For example, for each topic, the hours of revision should be fixed.
- In the last month, students must try to give more mock tests and revision tests. You can go for the mock test of the institutes and either self-analyze the papers or get the faculty to do it and explain the weak points.
Hence, these were some of the major points students can consider during the last month before the examination.
Therefore, since the CA Foundation exam dates have been postponed to June, students have some extra time for preparations. Even the last dates to submit the examinations forms have been extended. Now, the students can fill up the examination form by 30 March.
