Yes My dear.
It is possible to clear CMA without any coaching.
It does not make any difference whether it is old syllabus or New syllabus.
In my opinion, it is possible to clear any subject under syllabus with out coaching.
All you need is dedication that you will do it.
Please note some important points in this regard:
MY REAL EXPERIENCE:
- If you want to clear any subject with out coaching then you must have proper planning for it. So plan well in advance.
- Spare two or three days for it and go through the whole book and syllabus. In this two days criticize yourself and consider the all possibilities of getting failed. Mark yourself where you are and then deduct 20% of marks from your estimation to be on safe side.
- Go through the last year questions paper and find out whether you can or not. This is because the first thing which you will require for clearing it without coaching is motivation.
- Most Important: Once you are prepared for it then no one can stop it. Prepare in the sense there should not be any doubt on your capabilities.
- Once your prepare, purchase some good reference book for costing and download a lots of other ebooks.
- If you are well in academic and if you can handle it then i suggest you to prepare different costing topic from different books. I mean generally students purchase a best book of costing or some students purchase a best book of standard costing (i assume he is weak in standard costing) but i purchase one best reference book and then prepare different topic from different ebooks downloaded.
- In my opinion Institute material, Scanner, RTP and reference book of Ravi M Kishore will be best combination for passing the costing paper.
I was told by my six friends that it is not possible to clear the CMA Advance Financial Paper of Group 4 without coaching.
Right now after clearing my CMA i can say they were right it is difficult to clear Advance Financial Reporting paper without coching. It is very though to clear it.
I had scored only 43 marks in this paper and one of my friend got failed in this paper only, where as in other three paper his score was 73,75 and 70 marks.
I told that it is difficult.......but not impossible
I score 43 marks but without coaching.Not a single coaching or any help of friends.
So lastly it is possible to clear any paper without coaching.....
Dedication - First of all i decided that i will do this at any cost.Planing - I plan a lot for it.Timining - Daily mandatory two hours for this subject. This is because of two reason. First, if you spare daily two hours then in six month total there will be 180*2 hours for preparation. In this way you will prepared well for it and i think once you prepare well your confidence level will grown up automatically.
I hope you understand the whole thing, what i am making you to understand.
Though i don't enough time to reply you but i am talking my personal interest because you are thinking of doing on your capabilites.
Remember my dear friends, in the above whole articles the only thing i want to focus is if you are confident then you can other wise you cannot.
And to be confident, first go through whole book and syllabus and plan well. If after going through whole book if you think you can't, then don't take any risk.
There is nothing to do whether you clear CMA through postal or oral.
But first thing you must get the answer "YES" when you ask yourself whether you want to prepare it on your own.
If you get the answer yes and if you focused on it then yes you will.
At last i would like to tell you that it is possible to clear it with out coaching but it is really difficult.
I had clear my MBA,CMA Foundation, inter and Final as well but it is really difficult.
If at any time you think that you can't go further, then do not feel it go throug coaching.
