Candidates can follow these general tips & tricks to prepare for CA CPT 2018 exam:
Make A Study Plan:
Before starting with your exam preparation, you should first create a timetable that guides you and keeps you focused to attain your goal. Your timetable should include all the topics that you have to study on a daily basis. You should spend more hours on the tough subjects, and go easy on the ones that are not so tough. In addition, do not forget to include sufficient intervals/breaks in your study schedule.
Keep Stress and Fear At Bay:
Fear and stress are two of the major factors that tend to negatively affect your overall performance. However, you should try and stay calm while preparing for exams. Staying calm and composed will not only help you relax your mind and body but will also boost your confidence eventually.
Don't Cram, Make Notes:
If you are aiming to crack a competitive exam like CA CPT, then you should let go of the cramming of subjects. If you are cramming everything, then the chances of forgetting everything that you have learnt increase. Instead, you should prepare short notes from the beginning while studying for exams, as it will certainly help you recall all the points at the time of revision.
Prepare According to the Latest Syllabus:
Preparing according to the latest and prescribed syllabus of CA CPT is important. Studying beyond the syllabus of the entrance exam will not help you much as the prescribed syllabus of CA CPT is quite vast. Therefore, devote your precious time to preparing the topics that are included in the CA CPT syllabus in order to crack the entrance exam.
