9th October………..to……..12th November
12th November…….to…….2ed December 2006!
I’m glad it’s the 2nd of December today. Finally my Common Proficiency Test results are out. Well you would have sensed it till now that I cleared the exam. And I did clear but not with flaunting marks at all. But still I’m content. My one month preparations during the diwali vacations paid off. I still remember telling people that I took up this examination just so that I’m occupied during my vacations. And that true. One of the reasons was that.
9th October, the last day of getting registered for CPT for the November attempt. I got myself registered at ICAI at Cuffe Parade. Before that on the 6th of October I along with all my other CA aspirants had gone to ICAI to get them registered. All were quite surprised to see me there because till then I wasn’t quite confident as to give this thing a shot or not. But anyways with the constant pestering of my brother I finally gave it a shot. On the 9th I got a set of 4 fat books. Really fat and damn heavy. Boy my back was aching for the next two days. Fundamentals of Accounting, Mercantile Law, Quantitative Aptitude, and Economics were the 4 subjects I had to gain knowledge on in just one month. I was in a situation like that of Saif Ali Khan in Kal Ho Na Ho where SRK has a plan of “che (6) din, ladki in.” remember?? and my plan was, “1 month and 4 subjects!!” ;)
I was pretty much in a bad shape for the whole month studying things by myself. I had my days of tears and laughter. As for those who know me well know that I don’t get easily tensed up. I like to take up things as they come and leave a lot of other things for option as well..hehe… ‘Tension’ is a banned word in my house. Ooh but I’m a human. I did get those goose bumps when the exam approached nearer.
Ooh! That 1 whole month …..can’t put them to words….it was totally chaotic….constantly knowing how much my other friends have finished studying where as I stood nowhere in front of then…how their classes were still going on….how I hardly understood anything of Quantitative Aptitude….in what a bad condition I was in….but still getting constant support from my friends that I could do it….I could clear it….it was all a khichadi….
I was the least prepared of all. So no doubt that I didn’t score too well. But I my so happy for all my other friends who did a fantastic job. Aah! I’m glad be be in a company of merit rankers!!!!! J
Scholars!!! Every one of them….Pooja came in merit, Alisha got a merit, Siddharth got it as well, Gauraw made it to the merit list, Rohit just missed it by 2 marks, Karthik scored pretty well, the list is endless…..all did brilliantly… I’m proud of them all. Someone told me its ok if you don’t come in merit once. I said that’s true. There’s a thrill in itself to be standing in the position I’m in right know. And my friends know that and appreciate it. What more do I ask for? .....Bravo to you guys!!!!
Ooh BUT those 30 days!!!!
Books, computer, phone, net, 'coffee' all were my supporters!!
The real test comes now…what’s ahead is something really tough…practical…
BEST OF LUCK TO ALL……
