Want to attain good marks in CA final then this is the right platform for you.

Sailing through exams for professional courses has never been easy. It is more of a smart work rather than hard work. The exam time table has been released and it gives us almost 1 months (approx.) to revise all the subjects properly (Final preparation) and secure good marks.

As you know CA Final Group 2 includes 4 subjects

  • Strategic Cost Management & Performance Evaluation/Advanced Management Accounting (SCMPE/AMA)
  • Direct Tax & International Taxation [Same for Old/New]
  • Indirect Tax Laws [Same for Old/New]
  • Electives (6 Paper Options) /Information system and Control Audit (ISCA)

 Out of the above subjects :

  • New Syllabus
    All 3 Compulsory papers are Practical & Electives contain both practical & Theory Papers.
    However, the pattern of SCMPE (Costing) paper has completely changed and application based theory question is asked which covers many topics in one question. So Students need to change their way of preparing for Costing paper.

Specific Points to Know for May 23 CA Final Exams:-
