ISCA SUGGESTIONS FOR Nov 14

Hello Students,
I hope your preparations are good and you are taking care of your health. At this stage it is more
important to be focussed and to manage stress. Believe in yourself and your efforts. Remember that
the institute is only going to check what you know, not what you don’t know. So, please remain
confident and do well in all papers. As for ISCA, I hope our classes and class discussions have been
helpful in retaining and managing this subject. I have herewith included certain more important
topics which must not be missed by anyone. It, however, in no ways means that the others are
less important.
Feel free to contact for any doubts and queries. And remember, “EFFORT ALONE BRINGS SUCCESS”
My best wishes are always with you!!
God Bless!!
SANJAY KHEMKA
