By following the below tips, CA students can easily crack the CA Foundation exam:

  • Planning and time management: Plan your study time effectively and allocate time to each subject according to its weight and difficulty. Set a daily target to complete the syllabus before the exam.

  • Understand the syllabus and study material: The Institution of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) provides all the study material, and with the help of this student, can understand the difficulty level of the exam.
  • Focus on statistics and logical reasoning: Students who are weak in math are advised to focus on statistics and logical reasoning because CA Foundation Math might be a little difficult for them. In Quantitative aptitude, logical reasoning and statistics contain 20 and 40 marks respectively. However, mathematics contains only 40 marks, so students who are weak in math give more focus to logical reasoning and statistics to crack the CA Foundation exam.
  • Have good command on the calculator: Use your calculator as much as you can because ICAI allows them on the CA Exams. In the CA Foundation exam, usually papers are lengthy so it is very important to know how to use it. Learn the short keys, which will help you save time in the exam.
  • MCQs questions: In the CA Foundation, two subjects, Quantitative aptitude and Business economics have only objective types of questions. So, practice MCQs based questions to increase your speed and accuracy. In addition to this, these subjects also have a negative marking of 0.25 for every wrong answer.
  • Cover the entire syllabus: Do not skip any topic because all the topics are equally important. The CA Foundation exam may sometimes include questions from unexpected areas of the syllabus. By covering everything, you will be able to tackle the unexpected challenges at the exam time.
  • Prepare your notes in chart form: It is very beneficial if you prepare your notes in chart form. Charts organize information into categories and subcategories, which improves the organization and readability of your notes. With the help of this, you can easily find out the specific details without reading long paragraphs.
  • Practice mock test papers:Mock test papers allow you to practice allocating time for various types and sections, which will help you develop a time management strategy for the actual exams. Giving mock test papers familiarizes students with the exam structure, reduces anxiety, and helps you to make strategies for the actual exam day
  • Stick to ICAI study material: ICAI study material serves as a cornerstone for your CA Foundation preparation. Also, its study material ensures that it is completely consistent with the exam structure, syllabus, and weightage of the different topics.
