I’m back! After almost 6 months. CPA na ako, not just of my own works, but especially, by God’s grace! :)

I want to share to you all my experience, my insights sa last board examination, and some advice na rin :)

Nagreview ako sa PRTC, some of them asking, why PRTC? Ang sa’kin kasi hindi naman sa trip lang, ate ko kasi nagbayad ng tuition ko, so sabi niya dun ako kasi magaling naman ang reviewers. And as the review went on, napatunayan kong tama naman siya. Na-conquer ko yung mga waterloo ko, especially BLT. :)) Sa mga magtetake ng board sa susunod, I suggest na i-assess niyo muna ang mga weaknesses niyo, search niyo kung saang review school mapupunan yung mga yun, as much as possible mag-stick kayo sa mga materials na ibibigay sa inyo (the reviewers knew very well kung ano mga dapat ibigay na materials). 

The board exam was difficult, really difficult, especially P2 (nung board exam ko lang ulit naramdaman yung ganun, yung feeling na wala akong inaral haha). I almost gave up first day pa lang, umiiyak na ko. Di ko alam kung bakit ganun yung TOA and AT. Standard-based kaya hindi pwedeng mangabisado lang, kailangan ng full comprehension. P1 was okay, for me, as long as alam mo ang concepts masasagot mo yung tanong (just be prepared for situational problems). AP, parang P1 din pero may mga binibigay na rin na questions na hindi usual na binibigay noon. MAS siguro ang pinakamagaan na subject for this batch. AT, be prepared for “grammar questions”

Ayun, basta kailangan ng sipag mag-aral. Pero siyempre, don’t be so hard on yourself, give yourself a break, mag-enjoy din paminsan-minsan (nakakaburnout mag-aral ng todo), kumain ng tama, uminom ng vitamins (bawal magkasakit), magpavaccine kung sakitin. Hehe. Pero ang pinakamatinding sandata sa lahat e prayer. Lift up to God everything that you do. Ask for His guidance palagi (whether you are a devout Catholic, Christian, o kung ano pa man). Sabi nga ni sir Ocampo before the first half of actual board, “Ngayon mafefeel mo na parang kulang pa ang inaral mo. Kaya nga merong space for Higher authority.” So yun lang, wala na ko masabi. Medyo feeling nasa cloud 9 pa rin :))

Congratulations to all CPA Board Examination passers, and as well as sa lahat ng nagtake! Nasurvive natin ang “one of the hardest” board exam sa history! Kudos!

God, you may not have answered my prayers today, but I’m still holding to that promise that You will make a way. :) I’ll be patiently waiting. :)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T. :)

I’m starting to have mutual understanding thingy with business law ❤ eto talaga pinakaayaw kong subject noon pero simula netong review classes, unti unti ko na siyang nagegets. Super galing lang ng reviewer namin (Atty. Ong), well facilitated ang discussion with cases. Nakakaamaze!

“Don’t pray for a good man. Pray for a godly man.”
