Countdown for CPT Examination Dec2013, Some Important points you should not miss


Keep in mind

1. Only passing marks are required. Marks and rank obtained in CPT are not considered for the next stage IPC

2. You need not have a maths background. If you are not good in maths, you can score more in other subjects and less in maths. Remember, final goal is to score 100 or above

3. Practice is the key to success in CPT, practice daily as many questions as possible

4. Subjects that are considered scoring in CPT are: 
(a) Accounts, 
(b) Mercantile Law and 
(c) Macro Economics portion of Economics

5. For practice at home, try solving questions of a topic immediately after reading theory

6. Practice with as many model and sample question papers as possible

Strategy in the examination hall:

1. Read all the instructions carefully

2. In the examination hall, for section 1, you should solve Mercantile Law questions first

3. Next, solve Accounts questions

4. Competition is tough, try solving the maximum number of questions

5. Even if you are confident that the first option in the question is correct, read all the options before answering the question

6. Even if you are confident that the first option in the question is 100% correct, check if “all of the above” option is given below or not
7. If the question asks about which one is NOT CORRECT, check if “none of the above” option is given below or not

8. Be extra careful on very easy and easy questions. Sometimes, these questions are tricky. Many students mark wrong answers for easy questions and regret later
9. Use elimination method for those questions whose answers you don’t know directly. Eliminate those options which can’t be right, and then choose your answer from the remaining options
10. Leave those questions about which you are not confident at all, remember there is negative marking. Don’t bring your score down by attempting questions whose answers you don’t know at all
11. Where in doubt, always consider your first guess or the answer that came in your mind first as the right answer

12. Always recheck your answers after 
attempting all questions.

Speak your mind
