    I had passed C.A.(Intermediate)examination held in Nov, 1989 and could not clear C.A. Final due to some or other reasons and appeared for C.A.Final Group I exam after the gap of almost 25 years and could get the exemption by securing 61 marks in Company & Allied Laws during the exam held in Nov, 2014. Again I could not clear the other subjects in Gr.I during last two attempts and this ensuing May, 2016 is the last attempt for availing the exemption, so kindly guide me to clear the Gr.I at least in May, 2016 and thereafter Gr. II



    1. What I can suggest is do join coaching classes for CA Final, if you feel ashamed in offline classes, then you can also join online classes of CA final at caclubindia, I have done that and it is good, group 1 at CAclubindia for CA Final will take maximum 250 hours to finish the 3 subjects. It’s a good choice. Faculty like Rahul Malkan (FR), Amit Parakh/Rahul Malkan (for SFM), Ravi Taori (Audit) are good picks there.

      Otherwise, I don’t think referring new books at this stage will be helpful, so I suggest joining the classes as you will get some tips and techniques to crack the CA Final Group 1.
      Good luck !!!

  2. Sir
    I have registered for articleship w.e.f 1st Nov 2013 after clearing both groups of IPCC. Am I eligible to appear for CA Final to be held in May 2016? Pls reply.
    Thank you..
