Meet CA Mounika M

CA Mounika M
Nov 19 Batch

She Belongs to Hyderabad, cleared CA Final exams in Nov 2019

Lets’ know how she prepared, what she did to earn CA to her name

When did you start the CA Course?

I started the CA Course in 2014.

What / who inspired you to choose CA as a profession

I heard that CA is one of the toughest courses in India. After going through the curriculum I thought this is something different and which has drawn my attention pursuing this course

Write something about your journey to become a Chartered Accountant, how you started the CA Course, the challenges you faced, the hurdles you have gone through, your articleship experience, etc.

I've started CA course in 2014 I cleared CPT in the first attempt and later on, I started preparing for IPCC and cleared the same in first attempt After clearing my Ipcc I was in ICU and by God's grace I was out of it completely. And later I joined for a articleship in a mediocre form and due to late working hours in office somehow managed to attend SFM class. Later I decided not to join any classes and started self-preparation... Had given my first attempt in May 2019 and failed in that attempt.. while preparing for Nov attempt I realized that" Failing to plan is planning to fail" and this time I made a plan and executed it and I've finished my CA in Nov 19 attempt 

Which books you preferred during your preparations

  • Paper 1: FR: Study Material 
  • Paper 2: SFM: Study Material 
  • Paper 3: Audit: Pankaj garg scanner and his main book
  • Paper 4: Law: Munish bandari 
  • Paper 5: AMA: Study Material 
  • Paper 6: ISCA / Electives: Study Material and some research 
  • Paper 7: DT: Vinod gupta 
  • Paper 8: IDT: Study Material 

What was your overall strategy to clear exams?

In order to succeed in any exam, planning is very important... Along with that studying on a smart basis rather than referring 2 to 3 books... Choose one book and stick on it 

What was the one thing which worked for you to clear CA Final Exams

Good study environment and avoided using social media 

How many hours do you think is enough to devote to a student appearing for exams during the last month of preparations?

12 hrs with breaks in between and being positive and revised the ones which I 've studied earlier and during this time I've not prepared anything new. 

How much you relied on online notes shared by faculties?

I've referred formula booklet shared by Aditya Jain sir which helped me to revise the same on last day and for remaining subjects I prepared short notes and revised the same 

How much you relied on online revisionary classes?

Actually, I've not seen any revisionary videos 

Express your feeling, the moment when you got to know that you have actually qualified as CA

Despite endless sacrifices, late working hours in the office. In the end, hard work with smart work has paid me and I'm happy to see my parents reaction after clearing the exam

A piece of advice you want to give your fellows, that will help them in their studies

Make sure that a proper plan is made and follow the same without any delay. All the best for CA Finalists in advance
