CA Intermediate Study Plan – After students clear the CA Foundation exams, they are eligible to register for the CA Intermediate Course. Registered students will have an 8-month study period to complete the CA Intermediate Syllabus and prepare for the exams. The ICAI conducts the exams in May, September and January every year.

    Why do so Many Students Fail CA Intermediate Exams?

    1. Too much negativity around

    Since the CA course pass ratio is only 2-5%, you will naturally meet more failures than winners. So, when you ask or consult students who have not cleared the exams, you get negative feedback, which can demotivate and mislead you.

    2. No proper study material

    ICAI is the governing body of the CA course. The CA Inter study material provided by them is sufficient for the students. However the language of ICAI material is a bit complicated from other study materials available in the market. Students often study with those market books and get distracted from the proper course.

    3. No proper guidance

    ICAI updated and revised the syllabus periodically. The CA Intermediate exam pattern is also updated regularly according to industry demand and expectations. Many CA coaching institute cannot keep their syllabus updated according to ICAI and let their students study from obsolete materials.

    VSI has learned the pitfalls and has improvised and stimulated a study plan that helps students not only to pass CA intermediate exams but also to score top ranks and be the topper.
