Before we get into the details on how to score good marks in CA Inter Audit, let’s look at some common misconceptions about the subject in question and how they’re true.
- Audit is a theory subject
This is a pretty big misconception. Audit is, in fact, a practical subject through and through. Understanding Audit is not only important for clearing the CA exams but also for a practicing Chartered Accountant. It is a subject that is studied to be applied in real-time problem-solving in the future.
- You have to cram Audit to understand it
Yes, agreed, you have to cram Audit to some degree to score well in the examination. But Audit is not only about cramming. It has to be a combination of both understanding and cramming. With more stress on the understanding part. Because if you understand well, there is a limited need to cram concepts.
- Audit is a boring subject and studying it is a struggle
Audit has had the ill-reputation of being a boring subject for quite some while and we believe it is untrue.
If you take guidance from trainers who know how to make concepts interesting, then you’ll never find Audit boring. When real-life examples are incorporated into teaching, Audit becomes much more interesting and easy to learn.
Strategies for scoring good marks in CA Inter Audit

- Syllabus-wise study plan
Once you have selected a good reference/study resource for yourself, you also need to put in the effort and do self-study! This is the most important aspect of any CA exam preparation.
Start with the first five chapters, i.e. from Nature, Objective and Scope of Audit to Fraud and Responsibilities of the Auditor in this Regard. Next focus on chapters 7,8 and 11. These chapters need to be understood thoroughly. Post that do chapter 10, Company Audit, i.e. the chapter with the most weightage (10-2 marks). Then do chapters 13, 12 and 6. Keep chapter 9 for last. It is a huge chapter without a proper indication of what questions can be asked from it.
One important thing to keep in mind is that you should learn the SAs along with the chapters and not keep them for the end. There are many SAs and it can get hectic to memorise them all near the end. Make sure to byheart all the important SAs.
- Study with live examples
This is a short point, but a very important one. If you study Audit with only theory from the study material it will get boring and you won’t be able to retain concepts in your mind. Studying Audit with live examples not only makes it interesting to learn but will also help you in remembering important concepts during exams.
