NEVER LOOSE YOUR HOPES NEAR EXAMS : CA ROCKSTARS


Hi every one ..
After A long tym i am writing for u all .

please read it will take a few minutes of u all. Specially for those who has their examination next month ..
I know that majority of u are scared of exam . n its obvs ..
m sharing my experience during exam days . like every body i too scared of exams . bt trust me if u work a little hard n dont loose ur hope ..u will definately succeed . There are many students Who loose their hopes just few days before exams , I dont want to use harsh words bt they are the real lossers in life .

Dont think that if u did not revise ur full syllabus or u could not able to complete ur syllabus then u will not able to pass. Trust me in CA final law paper i was able to revise only 50% of syllabus due to fever but i did not loose my hopes i studied till last minutes n see wat happen 80 % of paper was from that 50% syllabus (god only help those who dont loose hope )
N one more important thing, People who think deactivating Facebook or watsapp let them pass ..its really a myth ..For me its a mind fresh ..bt dont get addicted .also pages like us CA Rockstars. updates important tips n topics .which are very helpfull to uh all ..

I hope it may boost ur confidence level . always keep in mind” YOU ARE THE BEST . NO ONE CAN STOP U FROM PASSING THESE EXAMS. EXCEPT UR CONFIDENCE.”
So dont let ur confidence to fall down …
(Share if you found this usefull )
Best of luck to you all

granted an exemption in that paper, which will be valid for the next three following
exams. The result of that group is also shown as “F-EX” ( i..e failed with
exemption).

have been brought forward from an exemption granted in that paper in an earlier
attempt.
If no such symbol (#) is printed against the marks of any paper, even though the
marks obtained in that paper may be more than 60, then that indicates that no
exemption has been granted in that paper.

A few consideration for Exam Buddies: Have a look


A few consideration for Exam Buddies :-

[Must share ]
CA Rockstars.

1.In case of theory paper, just try to be as
much professional in written expression as
possible.See how they answer question in ICAI
Suggested solution,that’s what they demand
from you.Yahan wo log pass ni hotay jo sirf
sahi likhtay hain,balki jo bohat acha likhtay
hain wo pass hotay hain.Jo aur jitna pucha jaye
wohi aur utna hi batao (apna knowledge jharoge
to examiner ko pasand ajao gay phir bar
bar bulaye ga).

2.In case of practical papers,jaldi jaldi mai poora
paper solve krne ki bjaye sukoon se kro and
jitna kro sahi kro.Complete krna kabi zaroori ni
hota (maine kabi pura ni attempt kiya).

CAFM mai sirf 58 no ka shi tha including theory
fir bhi 52 mile

3.Exam hall ki tension ko kisi b tarha avoid
kro.Ata sab kuch hota hai but un 3 hours mai
bhool jata hai tension se.

4.Last but not the least,jo mrzi kr lo pass GOD
ki mrzi se hona ha,so us se achay relations
bna k rakho (at least exam days mai,bad mai
to Besharam etc etc.hi dekhni ha sab ne).

All the best
