Instead of asking for advice from random people online, approach those who are ahead of you. Approach the CAs who teach CA-students
Your goal is to become Chartered Accountant. You have written your CA-IPCC exams this time, but you are not very confident about passing it. You have your CA-final exams approaching in less than two years. And you are confused whether to start preparing for your CA-final exams now. And if yes, then whether to start with Group 1 or Group 2.
This article will guide you on taking advice from people when it comes to preparing for your CA-exams.
If you want to achieve your goal of becoming CA, and therefore, want to pass your exams at the earliest without wasting any more of your time, follow the 3 simple tips listed below when approaching for advice on important matters such as passing your CA-exams.
1. Know whom you should ask for advice.
I’ve observed CA-students desperately asking for advice on important matters from random people online. They don’t care to know about the person who advice them online. They don’t care to know whether the advising person is competent to advice them on that particular matter.
But how do you know who is the right person to advice you?
This depends on the type of advice you are seeking. If it is about your confusion on whether to start preparing for your CA-final exams before one year in advance, and/or about which group to approach first, instead of asking for advice from random people online, approach those who are ahead of you. Approach the CAs who teach CA-final students, and approach those who have recently passed their CA-final exams.
2. Know whose advice to take and whose advice not to take.
Approaching the CAs who teach the CA-final students, or approaching the recent CA-final pass-outs does not automatically mean that each one of them will be helpful to you whenever you need help. Although most of them are kind and helpful, and ready to help you if you approach them. However, you may encounter some who will not be as kind and helpful. Don’t be surprised or discouraged by them or their behaviour. Approach and listen to those who are willing to help you.
3. Know what advice to take, and what advice to leave.
It is you and only you who knows you better than any other people. And it is you alone who should know what tips and advice could be helpful to you in passing your CA-exams, in progressing in the CA-course and in becoming CA. Do not blindly follow the advice given to you assuming whatever they advice you must be helpful to you. Sometimes they can give you advice which need not be helpful in your case.
