    This is a great study plan. Thanks Hock team. Please can you clarify on the study hours required. As per the Study plan, for each part we need 8-10 hrs of study per week for 17 weeks totaling around 170 hours. But this was the same estimate we had for the earlier syllabus as well. So considering a whole new section F added in Part A and also other new topics added for the revised 2020 syllabus, shouldn’t the study hours be more than 170 hours?

    Hi Sajish,

    The previous study plan was 16 weeks, so it is longer than before, and keep in mind that the entire topic of Internal Auditing was also removed. We also adjusted some of the time balance between the Sections based on the amount of content. So, it should take a bit longer to prepare for 2020, but not more than an additional week or two.
