Rank: 50, Batch: May 2016
Place: Jaipur, Rajasthan
My first reaction
When I view my result and merit list firstly I thanked to God because it was AIR 50 which was the last rank. If I had got one mark less then I could have missed the all India Rank. So it was a very special moment for me and my family.
I have done my Articleship from Kalani & Co. a leading Chartered Accountant Firm in Rajasthan. The practical exposure which I have received during my Articleship is really very helpful in my study specially in audit subject.
I think coaching is important but is not necessary to take all subjects coaching. One can prepare theory subjects like Audit, Law without coaching. I think there is requirement to take practical subject coaching.
I got study leave from office in mid December (apx 4 and half month) before which I have completed all the coaching which I require and I have prepared the notes for the subjects which I was preparing self. I have done three times revision of all the subjects.
In last 4 month I daily study for 12-14 hours. I have given two months (60 days) for first revision then did second revision in 45 days and third revision in 30 days (60+45+30=four and half month).
