04- Not Doing Revision:- CA Final students always make this mistake and skip the revision after completing one subject. The CA Final Syllabus is vast, and it is impossible to remember important topics in a one-time study.

It can result in disappointment in your result. Revision part is important to recall all important & difficult part. It is always advisable that whenever you are studying for the 1st time, you shall study the full course and keep on marking all important & difficult parts of the course. During your revision time, you need to take special attention to these marked parts, as they are important for your exams. So to avoid this mistake, always revise your subject after completing it and also make notes. It helps you to revise the important topic just before the CA Final exam. And never forget to revise the course at least 3 times before exams to get the desirable result.
05- Selection of wrong coaching center:- It has been seen that many institutes come out with new attractive offers and advertisements to attract the students, and often students get attracted by these offers and choose the wrong coaching center for their CA Final exam Preparation.

First, before taking classes from the teacher, get the information about your teacher that how much experience he/she has, what is the environment of the institute, how they solve your doubt, how they teach. After getting satisfied with every answer, you can join the institute. So it is important to find the best institute for your preparation to score better in your CA Final Exam.
