Most CA Students face this problem where you score 180-190 marks and falls short of that 30 Marks in order to reach the overall aggregate of 200 Marks. This happens with 80% of cases where a student fails in the exam. This 15-20 Marks is the one that differentiates one student who cleared the exam to the other. In this article i will try to analyse the reasons due to which students fail in the exams.
So what’s the exact reason for this?? Let us analyse few issues in the first place.
We all know about peer reviews, quality review, review Vs audit, but we don’t know what is the difference between all these types of Review is. We all know Risk at financial statement level Vs Risk at assertion level but we don’t know where or when we should apply these concepts.
We all know formulas for standard costing but we don’t know why do we multiply actual rate and why we multiply by standard quantity??
And list goes on and on and on and on…..
We want to run very fast achieve very fast? Point is you need to slow down learn slowly step by step make strong foundation and then conquer exams.
We get tensed when we spend more time on concept, hence we don’t ask why???
We lose interest when we don’t crack something, hence we leave Why???
We don’t know how to understand something, hence we leave the concept.
We don’t ask doubts because people will think I am a fool!!!
There is no one to solve high level doubts / why
We simply read and solve again & again and remember things and produce it from memory.
Memory is bad 50% of times, we get confused many times; we do silly mistakes and we keep scoring low.
Guy’s the biggest reason is we don’t ask “WHY”???
So What is the solution?? What to do???
Take guidance from professors for each subject. Ask this “why” to each one of them again and again without hesitation, after you try to think about these doubts for at-least 2-3 days on your own? This will develop your thought process?
