As this is a very much theoretical part, so you can start this subject at the last and clarity of the concepts is essential. Learning work is not much required.
Friends, one thing you should always keep in your mind that last month is all about revision. Do the revision at least three times before exam. And one month is more than enough only for the revision purpose. Apart from the last month, you still have three months that means approx 22 days for each subject.
You can start reading with the subjects which are new for you like Business Laws or Business and Commercial Knowledge. And you should daily practice one paper of either Accounting or Business mathematics, statistics, logical reasoning. So, that you can grab a command on these subjects. These are very much scoring subjects.
Guys, if you stick to only one subject for the whole day or the for the whole 20 days. Then, this will be wasting your time. You can start with 2 subjects or more and try to complete them within the above mention time. By switching over the subjects in a single day, will have you to complete the course much faster and you will also not get bored with the same subject. And if you take regularly all the subjects, then its revision would also not consume much time.
So, try to complete the subjects on alternate days basis. Two on MWF and the remaining two on TTS basis.
