    Hi Kirti,

    I have cleared part 2 and I think i can help you with this question. I was solving a mock before my exam and I was unable to be sure of most of the professional ethics questions because, as you mentioned, it is confusing. I learnt few things, sharing it and hoping it might help you:
    1. I took each sub topic - like Teology or Deontology, Or Corporate Culture or ethical considerations - I marked 5 points and learnt them by heart in case something in essays comes up to wrote about it. This trick worked as i was asked a sub-question on similar lines in the essay.
    2. Then, i read each line in the textbook as if how will an MCQ be formed around it. And made keywords like consequence - Teology; motivation, action - deontology; D for duty D for Deontolgy; being and moral character - vitrue; etc.
    3. I read and read and read every marked line in Professional ethics (whole chapter) 20 times in last 15 days before exam. It took 1 hour in the starting then 45 then 30 and down to 10 mins at end for revising whole chapter.
    4. FCPA is next level confusing and twisted so i tried to learn each line by heart. Not cramming it but making logical sequence like FCPA - what, for whom, what entities, third party intentions; exceptions - so i tried to link it and followed a sequence.

    I followed this and let me tell you i was happy this all worked for me in exam. There were some questions which I think i might not be right but i was able to crack most of the questions on Professional ethics in exam. Hope it helps, all the best!

    Hi Nupur,

    Thanks for taking out time to explain it so nicely. This makes sense now and probably this is the only way to clear ethics.

    Regards
    Kirti
