My first reaction
It’s thrilling when I heard about my result from ICAI President and Vice President that I have secured 2nd rank. Only then I saw my result. I give the credit of my success to my parents and my teachers who taught me.
I am doing my internship with Sudhakaran and Associates in Vijayawada. My Auditor also helped me in achieving this success. By pursuing articleship training, I gained knowledge in Direct taxes.
I have taken coaching in Superwhizz, Vijayawada. Self study is good but it takes lot of time for the students to understand the concept by themselves as the syllabus is vast. It is advisable to take coaching because if through self study it takes you 3 to 4 hours to learn any concept, the same thing a experienced teacher can teach in an hour.
My study schedule is for 3.5 months. I have prepared my schedule for 2 revisions. I started my first revision by taking 10 days for each subject and the in the remaining time have completed my second revision.
Books and e-sources
I have prepared from study materials, Practice manuals, Supplementary material, Revision Test papers issued by ICAI.
I have not attended any mock tests. But attending mock tests is very important because we will be able to know in what areas we are doing well and not. It also teaches us how to manage time in the examinations.
Rank and preparation
Frankly speaking, I didn’t prepared for rank. My aim was to understand, analyze and read the subject and pass the final exam with good marks. I didn’t even expect the rank, that too All India 2nd rank.
I want to enter in to the corporate world. And while doing job I have plans to do some additional courses.
Yes, I am preparing for ICAI campus.
Advice to fellow students
If we understand the subject, have the conceptual clarity with desire and determination, everyone can achieve success
All the Best!!
