Strategies to score 60+ in EIS-SM

  1. Start Early

Start studying early and finish at least 30% of the syllabus a few months before the exam. Most of the students don’t take EIS-SM seriously and leave it for the last. But this subject is lengthy with a lot of technical elements and it takes time to understand the concepts in-detail. Hence, do not make this mistake and start studying early, so that you have a clear idea of concepts and plenty of time for revision before the exam. 

  1. Write Notes

Because EIS-SM is a lengthy subject, making notes as you study is very important. Make detailed notes for yourself and write down all key points which you can revise weekly. Writing makes it easier to retain whatever you are studying. It also gives you the practice to write for exams and having notes makes revising before exams more easily. 

  1. Use Good study/reference material

The key to having a good understanding of concepts of EIS and SM is that when you begin studying, you are using a good source as study material. 

Good lectures provided by experienced faculty can do wonders for your study preparation. If your concepts are clear, you will not have to struggle much before exams when you are revising.

  1. Attempt several mock tests 

Mock tests are the most important and best exercise to prepare you for the exam. Attempting mock tests trains you to get in the exam mindset, gives you writing practice, and hones your memory to retain whatever you have studied. So, attempt as many EIS-SM mock tests as you can.  

  1. Allotment time for studying and attempting the paper

Since Strategic Management is comparatively easier than Enterprise Information Systems it would be ideal to allot a 40:60 ratio of time for both studying and writing the papers.

Also, while writing the paper, it is better to begin with SM, as it can be finished faster and the questions are comparatively easier than EIS. 

  1. Presentation for paper

Writing answers with special attention to headings and subheadings will not only help you to structure your answers better but will also help you in studying and remembering concepts.

Do not forget diagrams and tables as they can convey your answers better and also save the time it takes for writing huge answers. Graphical presentation of answers is a great way to ensure good marks, specifically in EIS.

Also, make sure to give relevant examples to support your answers. Showing an understanding of current business scenarios through examples results in good marks.

Usage of good language is also a must in EIS-SM. Prepare your answers well, practice writing them and have good command over the subject. 

What not to do for EIS-SM preparation

  1. Do not procrastinate and leave studying for the last minute. There is a lot to cover and the earlier you start, the better.
  2. Do not leave out diagrams and tables in your answers. They are a great way to present answers and ensure good marks.
  3. Do not neglect the study material provided by ICAI.
  4. Do not neglect to allot proper time for EIS and SM.
