How to score well in Advanced Auditing – 6 Tips
- Advanced auditing by itself is a vast topic. Splitting it into two portions – the major high scoring areas and the minor (though important areas) will help in efficient preparation
- The major portions include professional ethics and standards, while the rest together make up the minor part
- Since auditing is mostly theoretical, writing to the point, using correct technical terminology, underlining key words and structuring answers is extremely important. Citing auditing standards is one way to showcase your knowledge and back your answer
- Presentation makes a real impression. While answering correctly is important, how you present it also matters. Structuring your answers into sections with headlines and highlighting important parts of the answer will create a good impression
- Direct theory-based questions where definitions and terminology are asked are high-scorers. Answer to the point in crisp terms, use bullet points and score full marks in such questions
- When attempting questions in professional ethics, it is best to adhere to the format given in the practice manual. The first and last portions of the answer should contain the part, schedule and clauses. Include the applicability and justification of each clause in the main paragraph of your answer
