The students of Integrated Professional Competence Course [Paper 7 – Section B – Strategic Management] and Professional Competence Course [Paper 6 – Section B – Strategic Management] may note that there will be no Case Study (carrying 15 marks) in the examinations.

Instead of the Case Study a compulsory question containing five sub-divisions carrying three marks each would be included to cover maximum possible topics from the syllabus.

The new pattern of the question paper shall be applicable from November, 2011 examinations.
