Tips to Pass IFRS Examination

The course requires 200 hrs of study time to complete the preparations. So you need to plan accordingly.

Below are the few details on how you can plan your exam -

1. Study Style

The candidates can follow the previous year's question pattern and the questions. This will help them to identify the important questions and topics that they should give more importance before the exam.

2. IFRS Formats

You will understand the Financial Statement Format once you check out the previous year's question paper. This is important in case of questions related to Q1.

3. IFRS Theory

Only understanding the practical won't help the candidate. Along with it, they must have proper knowledge of the theory. Understanding everything conceptually is very important for the IFRS Examination.

4. Practice past IFRS Papers

You need to get 50% to pass. Practising can make you perfect and try to practice properly with pen and paper just the way you would during the main exam.

5. Time yourself

Do personally four full question papers under exam conditions of 3h 15 minutes at the same IST times 2:30 pm-5 45pm. It may sound awkward, but when you get the benefits it's worth it! However, individually when we practice consolidation questions, that need to be timed as well to strategize our exam plan whether to take up Q1 at the end or not.

6. Attempt full 100 marks

Extremely vital and important is to attempt the full paper which increases the pass chances definitely and get yourself good scores for the effort you've put in!
