a) In CPT Mercantile Law, conceptual clarity is more important. So reading and understanding theory content is more important than practicing MCQs.

b) As it is a new subject to all the students, try to pay more attention on this subject.

c) For students coming from any background, this is the most scoring subject of all. The chances of getting difficult question paper in this subject are very less. At maximum you may get MCQs based on Practical Questions which will be time consuming to read.

d) Don’t forget that the same syllabus is there at IPCC also. If you prepare well now, then it will be useful even for your IPCC course. The same syllabus will be useful for you even for your B.Com Final year , CMA Foundation & CMA Inter.

e) On the basis of past examination trends, nearly 35 out of 40 MCQs will be very easy and direct questions.

f) Don’t try to have indepth analysis of MCQs in this subject. If you do so, you may get confused. Examiner is NOT EXPECTING EXPERT KNOWLEDGE from you, in this subject. Even while answering MCQs if you think deeply or think in multiple ways then the chances of picking up wrong answers will be high. Don’t think deeply while answering the MCQs.

g) Controversies are quite common in this subject. If you refer more number of text books, you will get confused because of differences in opinions among authors. So, it is always preferable to stick on to our material alone and also to accept the answer told by the faculty. Don’t dare to refer multiple text books for this subject.

h) The chances of getting confused and picking up wrong option are high in this subject. So, think twice before coming to a conclusion.

i) If the Accounts subject is easy then the chances of getting difficult or lengthy questions in Mercantile Law will be more. In such a case, be more careful while answering MCQs in this subject.

Recent trends in question papers, challenges that you will face in this subject and how to face them?

Increase in number of MCQs on Practical questions & Case studies.Those MCQs will kill lot of time.

Students will stuck at those MCQs and they will also get disturbed psychologically.

Don’t ignore lengthy MCQs while preparing.

Case studies in our material will be given as Practical questions in the examination.

Think twice before coming to a conclusion.

Questions of the type WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS IS CORRECT / INCORRECT will be given which will be very confusing in nature and will kill lot of time. Be more attentive with respect to such type of questions.

Read thrice before coming to a conclusion.

Either try to pick up right option or try to eliminate wrong options and you will be left with correct option.

The question will be exactly same as a question that you might have already read in our material. But there might be changes in the options. As a result the chances of picking up wrong answer will be high in this subject. You will face this situation if you mug up the MCQs.

Correct classification of chapter will solve 50% of the issues.

Don’t jump into conclusion just by reading the question. Read the question as well options twice, before coming to a conclusion.

Chapters 10 & 11 – they are very important, have highest weight in the examination and may get complicated questions also. Acquire expert knowledge in those chapters.

Refer those chapters for multiple times.

Don’t ignore even in a single concept in those chapters.

  3. MCQs based on case studies

For example, “One of the following is not a characteristic of partnership firm”.
