CA Intermediate is the second level to become a qualified Chartered accountant. The papers for CA Intermediate are divided into two groups. Each group consists of four papers.

Today we are going to share with you some tips that will help you in the preparation of your CA Intermediate exam and also help to get a good rank.
Being consistent with your studies is the key.
No exam can be cleared at all if you think you will study just days before it and then go sit in an examination and can get a good rank. Success doesn’t come that easy my friend. You have to work really hard for it and then earn it. Success doesn’t know any shortcuts. You have to work hard every day for it. Make a schedule of your preparation time in a way that in the end before the exams you have spared yourself time for revision as well. Only preparing once won’t help you either. Revision is also important.
Make a proper timetable.
It is very important before beginning the preparation of any examination to make a proper timetable. Divide your time before the exam in a way that it covers all the subjects and there’s still time left for revision of each and every subject. Don’t make a timetable that you can’t follow rather make a realistic timetable that you can follow positively. To achieve success, proper planning is a must. By following a timetable, you will find yourself more organised. You will also be able to determine your weak points and strong points and then you can work accordingly too.
Know your subject strength.
It is again a very important key factor to get success in the first attempt and also to get a good rank. Let’s be honest CA exams are not everybody’s cup of tea. Not every student can be perfect in each and every subject. So, it’s very important that you maintain an equilibrium while preparing for your exams. Let’s say if you have trouble preparing for any particular subject before the exam, then study the other subjects of that group in a way that they balance out the marks you score in the weak one. And all in all, you get success in your CA Intermediate exams which is our ultimate goal in the end.
Stay positive throughout the preparation period.
This is a very important factor as well. Taking unnecessary pressure before the exam is going to do you no good. A lot of students despite knowing everything fails in the exam just because they take a lot of unnecessary pressure before the main exam. You can also try meditation if you want. It helps in increasing your concentration power and also helps in retaining things in your mind for a longer time.
If you incorporate each of these in your daily routine then we assure you that you will surely get a good rank in your CA Intermediate exams.
