  9. Darshan said

    Hi Guys !

    Yesterday i gave my Final AFP exam and fortunately i cleared :-p

    Thank you Prashant sir your website turned out to be very helpful throughout my 5 modules 🙂

    Two Case Study were asked ASHWIN (case A) & MAHESH (case D)
    One thing to say ! in the exam either of one will be a cake walk and the second one will be challenging . My advice will be to make sure u take the most out of it from the case study which is easy.

    in my paper Case Ashwin was the same as SAMPLE PAPER (AFP) 2010. This sample paper of 2010 i got it from my classes and trust me only the figures were different and rest the same 🙂

    The Mahesh case was a mind challenger and no idea from where they bring those questions from

    i will upload the 2010 sample paper soon and one thing please read the case(A to E) thoroughly before turning up for the exam because its a bit cumbersome process of scrolling up and down during the exam

    and ya one more thing since its a 4 hr exam have adequate sleep before appearing for it because after 2 hrs ur mind will stop accepting to think :-p
