Should You Give Your 100% for Your CA Exams?

Should You Give Your 100% for Your CA Exams?

A lot of CA students do this. They plan their studies well in the beginning, and as the time for their exams approach nearer, they find themselves under-prepared, and they begin to think of postponing writing their exams to the next attempt. This can turn out to be a big problem later on.

If you are preparing for your CA exams for the first time, you may have in you the determination to give 100% efforts in your preparations. You may also set yourself ambitious goals such as securing All India Rank in CA, getting into Big Fours etc.

But what when you find yourself falling short of giving your 100% efforts? Should you be hard upon yourself? Should you begin to take everything in your life seriously? We’ll discuss these below.

1. The perfect study plan.
Many of us, when planning our preparation for the exams, we plan everything perfectly. At the time of planning, we get highly motivated, highly energized and very determined in making and carrying out our study plans.

We think that we are going to give it everything it needs to accomplish our study goals. We don’t care about our surroundings, our circumstances and situations. When planning our studies, we find ourselves highly focused, and so we sit and come up with excellent study plans.

2. Failing to give 100%.
There are students who make their study plans and follow up on it very well. And there are also many students who are good at making plans but always find themselves falling short of meeting their study goals. They struggle when it comes to the execution part of their well-drawn study plans. Why?

2.1 Surroundings and Circumstances
The surroundings in which you live, they affect you and your ability to carry out your study plans successfully. Your circumstances and surroundings sometimes, or most of the times, dictate whether you will be able to give your 100% efforts during your days, weeks, and months of preparation for your exams.

2.2 Your Response
When you find yourself failing to give your best efforts in preparing for your CA exams, what do you do? The way you respond or react in this situation matters.

Do you begin to get mad at yourself when you fail to give your 100% efforts? Some students beat themselves up and abuse themselves thinking that doing these things will remind them and lead them to give their best efforts thereafter. You may find some immediate benefits in doing things like these but they are not healthy responses to such a situation. They do you more harm than good.

2.3 The Everything or Nothing Attitude
Some students, they come up with perfect study plans for their CA exams and they outline the perfect daily study routine they are going to follow. And when a little part of their day begin to go against their drawn up schedule for the day, they begin to get mad. They get highly disappointed and end up ruining their entire day.

They want everything to go as per their originally drawn study plan. And if things don’t go that way, they get highly upset and end up wasting their time in anger and aimlessness. They want everything to go perfect, otherwise they feel like they want nothing. Carrying this attitude, usually, does more harm than good.

2.4 Passing CA exams this time versus postponing it to the next attempt
A lot of CA students do this. They plan their studies well in the beginning, and as the time for their exams approach nearer, they find themselves under-prepared, and they begin to think of postponing writing their exams to the next attempt. This can turn out to be a big problem later on.

If you genuinely believe that you are, in reality, going to be able to give your best if you postpone your current exams to the next attempt, this may be good for you. But if you find yourself simply nervous and confused when your exams approach nearer, and if you feel you have not given your 100% in your preparation, instead of losing your mind to doubts, confusions and dilemmas, better just go ahead and give your exams. Why? Better go ahead in your life with less marks, than to go back to the same place you started out six months ago.

If you plan to give your best in your studies and plan to give it your all-out efforts, and if you are able to follow up on your original study plans, please do feel good for yourself for keeping yourself on track.

But if anything goes wrong in this process, which happens to most of the students, and as a result, if you have not been able to give your best, simply regretting over it won’t help you to move ahead in passing your exams and in becoming CA. Don’t lose your mind, beat yourself up or abuse yourself.

Revise your study plans and give the best you can for your exams under the circumstances and in the surroundings you are in.
