As such there is no smart strategy guideline provided by ICSI. So now it is upto us how to crack a exam and secure a rank.
I framed a strategy as I am giving exam in coming december,which is as follows.
I study CM&SL for longest hours as it is my weak point. In that I seperated a common topics and framed a general answer for that. For example Registration of intermediary,grant of certificate.
In company accounts and aduiting and company law find out the common topics like shares and debentures,managerial remuneration and prepare a theory for both at the same time. Then solve CA daily for practice and increasing speed.
