As you know, the examination result of CA Foundation generally remains about 30 to 35 per cent whereas the result of CA Intermediate and CA final examinations remains about 10 per cent only. Such low result data create fear among prospective CA students. They may start thinking, about whether they would be able to do CA or not.
But now, the students should not worry as VSI has identified the factors in which the students lack behind and how they can overcome them. And to deal with these reasons, VSI has developed a robust system to pass the CA examinations. If the students seriously follow this system in totality, passing the CA examination will become as easy as passing the 12th class examination; even in the first attempt.
To pass CA examinations, the students require two things: Firstly hard work for continuous studies and secondly proper guidance. Generally, it is seen that students achieve their first goal which is hard work, precisely but still they fail. The reason for this is the lack of expert guidance.

Generally, It is assumed that the classes and faculties associated with the coaching’s play a major role in CA results. Therefore the students try to join the best coaching institute. But in the opinion of VSI, the role of classes in CA results is only about 10%. The reason is being that every student thinks that, “I am taking coaching from the best faculty”, but the result remains 8 to 10% only. Also, it is observed that two students studying in the same class, one may secure All India First Rank, and another may fail. If the classes and faculties have played a major role, all the students attending the same class might have either scored the first rank or might have failed. But this does not happen.

2. Mock Test
As per VSI pattern, the Mock Tests plays 40% role in C.A. results.
There are three benefits of Mock Tests.
(i) Engage Students in Extra Study :
As we see during CA examinations, the students can study for 15 to 18 hours a day. But during ordinary days they find it difficult to continue to study for even 5 to 7 hours. If the students are required to appear in Mock Test conducted with certain intervals, they have to maintain continuity in studies. Thus the preparation for Mock Test makes the students go for extra-studies, which results in ‘Mastery’ of the subject and extra – marks in the examination.
(ii) Enable students to attempt 100% paper :
In CA examination most of the students attempt papers of 80 to 90 marks only. It happens because the student lacks a skill called ‘Time Management’. The students taking Mock Tests can know their strengths and weaknesses regarding the time taken in understanding questions, accuracy, and speed in making calculations, writing speed etc. Thus Mock Tests enable the students to learn how they can manage their time to attempt 100% paper.
(iii) Develops an ability to give a more relevant answer :
The students appearing in Mock Test learn to make a distinction between less relevant and more relevant answer points. Consequently, he/she learns to improve the quality of the answer as desired by ICAI norms and standards.
Features of VSI Mock Tests
(i) Designing of Mock Test Papers :
Generally, people believe that it is easy to design and conduct Mock Test Papers. But it is not so easy. Mock tests should be prepared and conducted in such a way that student learns various dimensions which are essential to clear the CA examination. Mock test conducted by VSI takes care of all these dimensions. In the same question papers, if the seriality of questions is being changed, it makes a lot of difference in results. Therefore, through Mock Tests we make the students learn which questions should be attempted first, how to maintain the quality of answers, and how to manage time to attempt all required question in scheduled time.
(ii) Unbiased paper setting :
The objective of Mock Tests cannot be achieved if the faculties associated with classes are setting the Mock Test papers. The question paper set designed by the concerned faculty members may become biased, and the base of the paper may become limited only to the questions which have been taught in the class. In such a situation the students securing very good marks in Mock Test may secure average marks in the Main CA Examination.
VSI has also faced this challenge and to deal with this challenge, Chairman Shri CA R.C. Sharma did depth study of all the subjects of CA Foundation, IPCC, Intermediate and CA Final classes. After making continuous efforts for two years, now he himself design papers, answer keys and marking pattern of Mock Tests. Even assessment of the answer books of Mock Test is being done by the experts other than the faculty members associated with respective classes. This change has enabled the students to secure more marks, than the marks secured by them at Mock Tests. The CA IPCC results for the preceding six years reflect the impact of this change. VSI students have secured three times All India 1st Rank at IPCC Examinations in the last six years. In IPCC examination, May 2015 VSI has received to its credit first and second All India Rank along with 7th Rank.
In CA Final May 2018, only seven students were being taught in the first batch of CA final for all subjects. And VSI got AIR –1, AIR– 17 & AIR– 48 and all students were passed.
Moreover, in the CA Final Result of May 2022, many All India Rankers from VSI have given credits to the mock test series conducted here.
All these dimensions justify the 40% contribution of Mock Tests in CA results.
3. Personalized Guidance
The students preparing for CA examinations have different levels of understanding, intelligence, knowledge and pick-up ability. Shri R.C. Sharma, Chairman of VSI, categorize these students in 50 groups. The distribution of the students in these groups is based on their performance in Mock Tests. Each category of students requires a different sort of guidance. Accordingly, as decided by the chairman sir, the counselors of the Institute provide personalized guidance to the students.
We fully understand the importance of guidance and it is needed from the beginning itself. In the CA Foundation Result June 2023, our 302 students cleared the exams. And, many students gave credit to the personalized guidance and motivation given to them.
In Jaipur City, these efforts of VSI, have changed the attitude of prospective CA students about their examinations. Most of the students associated with VSI do not have a fear of exams. They have developed the confidence to win the game. An exception might be everywhere. Now our mission is to benefit prospective CA students all over India. To develop the attitude that passing CA Examination is as easy as passing the 12th class examination among the students all over India. Also, VSI is going to invite Franchise to conduct online classes.
