What is case study?
The case study examination is a written examination paper of four (4) hours. The examination is based on - Pre seen material issued one month prior to the examination date - Un seen material given at the examination date It allows examiners to test the professional competence of the future Chartered Accountants by giving an opportunity to the candidates to show the ability to solve real life complex commercial issues. According to the syllabus issued by the CA Sri Lanka, objectives of the case study are as follows. - Determine a candidate’s understanding of complex business issues - Determine the ability to analyse financial and non financial data - Determine the soundness of professional and ethical judgment in arriving at conclusion followed by making recommendations. Since the examiner tests your higher level skills, preparing for the case study needs different approach than studying for a “traditional” examination paper.

Usage of the Forum - TOP CA WITH ARUNA
Objective of the forum is to build a discussion table among applicants of the TOP CA. Aruna strongly believes that to be successful in TOP CA, there should be a team effort. The definition of the team should not only be limited to a few but it can be extended by using the forum. So, the forum can be used to discuss common issues, share industry knowledge and any other TOP CA related topics. Aruna also will continuously give feedback, post important updates, share industry knowledge and share students’ common weaknesses, etc. Therefore, Aruna invites all the applicants of the TOP CA to be part of the forum and to share knowledge. Invitation is also for the present ACA to share their knowledge with future Chartered Accountants.
