CA CPT Preparation Tips

  • Practice as more as you can because practice is the only key to get success in such kind of competitive exam.
  • While revision practice model papers, previous years’ questions, and sample questions as more as you can.
  • While practicing at home, start solving related questions immediately as you finish one portion of the theory.
  • Try to solve maximum questions as possible.
  • Avoid trying to hit and guess because if your guess is wrong there is a negative marking for the wrong answer, so try to use your sixth sense. If you are confused but sure about 1 option more than 70% then use guessing.
