& .

When the time is less but the question is lengthy, scoring good marks becomes a challenge and the biggest fear for a CA Final Costing (Strategic Cost Management & Performance Evaluation) student is to comprehend the question effectively and in the same spirit it was asked by the examiner. Here are a few tips to improve question reading and comprehension skill that a student must follow to score wonders in his or her examination:

.Introduction

.Types of questions in the CA Final SCMPE (Strategic Cost Management & Performance Evaluation): Case Study Based Questions & all other types of questions.

.How much time we need to invest in a question? We have very limited time in the examination: 100 marks Question paper is supposed to be completed in 3 hours i.e. 180 minutes. Proportionately we can calculate the time to be spent on a question. E.g. A 10 marks question shall be attempted in around 18 minutes.

.How to approach a case study question? A case study question is divided into three parts: Introduction Paragraph Several other paragraphs (Body of question) Concluding Paragraph & Requirements given in the question

In the body of a question, there are always things that are unrelated to the requirements given in the question so we shall initially focus upon the introduction paragraph or initial few lines of the introduction paragraph to gain a gist about the company. Additionally, we shall focus upon the requirements given in the question and/or concluding paragraph. Now, you are equipped to scrutinize the body of the question and extract & differentiate the information that is relevant and irrelevant in context to the requirements given in the question. Note: Read the requirements of the question at least twice.

.How to approach a question other than a case study question? Another type of question is typically divided into two parts: Several paragraphs (Body of question) Concluding Paragraph & Requirements given in the question

In the body of a question, there are always things that are unrelated to the requirements given in the question so we shall initially focus upon the requirements given in the question and/or concluding paragraph. Now, you are equipped to scrutinize the body of the question and extract & differentiate the information that is relevant and irrelevant in context to the requirements given in the question. Note: Read the requirements of the question at least 2 times.

.A Reason for choosing this topic in this video?

I, Parag Gupta, am an ex-examiner of the ICAI Final Costing examination. I understand very well the thought process of both paper setters and paper evaluators. I can be the best guide for a student about how he or she can score remarkably in his or her examination paper and be a top scorer or a rank holder in the examination.

.A Last minute-pro tip!

Even though you are fluent in English, translate the question in your native language to gain unparallel comprehension of the same question.

May God bless you all with a wonderful career.

Happy Learning
