The second level of the Company Secretary (CS) Course examination is called CS Executive. There are two modules, each with four papers. A student might choose to take the examinations for both courses at once or for just one module separately. Three of the eight papers are MCQ-based.
Both categories can be eliminated in one shot with good time management and thorough planning. The following are some exam-clearing strategies:
1. Setting a daily goal and having a clear plan to reach it is essential.
2. The syllabus includes a lot of theoretical ideas and regulations that can be grasped by reading frequently and learning the specifics of the rules.
3. Choosing a specific book and sticking with it instead of moving to different books for the same themes will help you avoid confusion and extra work.
4. One only has nine months to get ready for CS Executive after passing CSEET. Hence, a maximum of one month should be given for each subject.
5. Along with their studies, students should write their own brief notes because these will be useful for the second, third, and final revisions on the exam day. 6. Quickers are quite useful, particularly for theoretical courses.
CS Executive Subject wise Strategies
PAPER 1: JIGL
There are 17 separate statutes in this subject. When studying, a student should be sure to focus on just one Act at once. They should avoid studying two Acts at once or pausing in the middle of one Act to move on to another. Also, special focus should be placed on memorising the precise name of the Act, its year of enforcement, as well as a few crucial legal jargon and expressions utilised.
PAPER 2: Company Law
This main Paper is broken up into three sections: Part A is worth 50 marks, Part B is worth 40 marks, and Part C is worth 10. Part B is more straightforward and less theoretical than Part A, which has numerous chapters. With the fewest chapters, Part C is thought to be the easiest. Students should prioritise Part B, Part C, and then Part A based on grades and a time-benefit analysis. Also, it is advisable to practise writing replies because the exam will likely require more expert responses, particularly for this subject.
PAPER 3: SBEC
There are three sections to this paper as well. There are 12 chapters in Part A for 40 marks. 6 in Part B at 35 marks, and 3 in Part C worth 25 marks. Given that Part B and Part C combined account for 60 marks and 9 chapters, they can be given higher attention. Students can also create flowcharts for the steps and procedures in the procedural chapters in Part B, which will be useful for revision.
PAPER 4: Tax Laws
There are two sections to this subject. Part B is for indirect tax, and Part A is for direct tax (both worth 50/50 marks). Many students believe indirect tax is simpler than direct tax. GST is worth 45 marks in indirect tax, and customs law is worth 5 marks. The study strategy should be adjusted in light of the fact that the exam will consist of 100 multiple-choice questions (MCQs), with more emphasis being placed on the specifics in the study material and less on the format and methods for answering lengthy questions. Frequent MCQ practise is required for this paper because the tests will place a high value on how quickly you can answer the questions.
PAPER 5: CMA
The paper is MCQ-based, thus logic and conceptual clarity are prerequisites. Part I Corporate Accounting (60 marks) and Part II Managerial Accounting and Valuation are the other two sections of this paper (40 marks). Completing Part II first will enhance their confidence because it is relatively simpler for pupils to understand, takes less time, and is simpler to score. After finishing a chapter, students should practise by answering MCQs. Despite the fact that this subject is practical, since this is an objective paper, theory should not be overlooked when studying for it.
PAPER 6: SLCM
This subject combines theory with application. 14 chapters (70 Marks) make up Part A, while 2 chapters make up Part B. (30 Marks). Because mathematical questions can be challenging, practise is essential. Although the syllabus\’s topics appear to be few, each one is crucial. Self-made notes that have been summarised will be very useful for speedy revision.
PAPER 7: EBCL
This essay has three sections that cover various theoretical topics. Part B has 1 chapter (25 Marks), Part C has 12 Chapters, and Part A has 11 chapters (40 Marks) (35 Marks). As a result, it is obvious that Part B should always be given top attention. In addition, historical trends and ABC analysis should be taken into account when researching this topic.
PAPER 8: FSM
This 100-mark, MCQ-based exam is interesting. Financial Management is covered in Part A and is worth 60 marks. Strategic Management is covered in Part B. (40 marks). In opposed to Part B, which is entirely theoretical and is advised to be studied at the end to help students recall the concepts until the exams, Part A has roughly 70% practical questions and 30% theoretical questions. In order to aid in last-minute revision, a student should ensure that they write down all the pertinent formulas in one location.
A student can thus achieve his or her aim of becoming a CS at the first attempt by working hard and being dedicated, as well as by effectively arranging the studies and having the skills to carry them out.
