How to Prepare for CSEET: Study Plan, Mock Test, Self Practice

How to Prepare for CSEET: In light of the introduction of CSEET, it is essential to know about as to how to prepare for it, in order to score good marks. The following points lay emphasis on the preparation of CSEET:

1. Understanding of the CSEET Syllabus :

For any entrance test, we must be thoroughly aware of its syllabus, i.e. the Papers covered under the entrance test, topics and sub-topics covered under various Papers; otherwise our preparation may not be appropriate. In view of this, it is advisable that the candidates must go through the syllabus in detail to know the coverage of the contents under various Papers. For referring detailed syllabus, please access at:

Reading Materials/CSEET Bulletin

Candidates are advised to thoroughly go through the Reference Reading Material. The reference material is available on four Papers at ICSI website :

The Reference Reading Material may be accessed at: https://www.icsi.edu/reference-reading-material/

Study Plan :

In order to pass any entrance test, we must have an appropriate study plan in place. In this regard, it is suggested that you need to devote sufficient time for the above mentioned four Papers of CSEET. While drawing up the study plan, please ensure that all the Papers are given due weightage as it should not happen that for one Paper you devote more time while for the other less time, thereby, affecting your results.

Further, you may allocate two – three hours for each Paper on daily basis and study all the four Papers on alternate days. For example, Monday- Business Communication; Tuesday- Legal Aptitude and Logical Reasoning; WednesdayEconomic and Business Environment and Thursday- Current Affairs and Viva Voice and likewise again repeat this cycle.

Self Practice for Viva Voice :

It is to be noted that in Paper 4, there is a portion on Viva Voice alongwith Current Affairs. Now the Viva Voice is somewhat similar to practical test in laboratory that we appear prior to Class Xth / Class XIIth Board Examinations. The main objective of Viva Voice is to check the communication skills of a candidate; since after becoming a Company Secretary, you need to communicate with the stakeholders of the company, government / regulatory bodies, stock exchanges etc. and without having strong communication skills it may be difficult to convey the views properly.

Now to prepare for Viva Voice, you may practice in front of the mirror by speaking on topics like- About yourself; About the Indian economy in a very general manner; About your goals in life etc. This will assist you in overcoming fear of speaking and improve your communication skills.

Thorough Reading of recommended material and other books :

For a comprehensive preparation, it is advised that a candidate must thoroughly read various topics and sub-topics covered under the Papers of CSEET. Selective study is not at all advisable. Moreover, it is only through thorough reading of various concepts you can develop a better understanding and prepare properly for the CSEET.

Joining CSEET Preparation Classes :

We are pleased to inform that the Institute has commenced with CSEET classes at various Regional / Chapter Offices situated across India. In these classes, renowned and learned faculty members conduct sessions on the Papers of CSEET.
