CPA Alex Ocitti's Story as published on the ICPAU website: www.icpau.co.ug

CPA Alex Ocitti is a full member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU), the professional body that regulates the accountancy profession in Uganda. He completed the Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (CPA-U) course in a record 2 years, from March 2017 to March 2019. He was recognized at the 11th graduation ceremony of ICPAU for his outstanding performance.


But his journey was not easy. He faced many challenges and setbacks along the way. He had to quit his job to focus on his studies. He had to overcome the frustration of failing an interview because he did not have a professional qualification. He had to study hard and smart to pass all the 18 papers of the CPA course.


How did he manage to do it? He attributes his success to three main factors: motivation, discipline and CPA study packs.


Motivation


CPA Alex Ocitti was motivated by his desire to advance his career and become a professional accountant. He was inspired by the stories of other successful CPAs who had made an impact in their fields. He also wanted to prove himself and his potential to his family, friends and employers.


He says that motivation is the key to achieving any goal in life. Without motivation, you will not have the drive and the passion to pursue your dreams. You will not have the resilience and the perseverance to overcome the obstacles and challenges that you will encounter.


To stay motivated, he advises that you should have a clear vision of what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it. You should also have a positive attitude and a growth mindset that will help you learn from your mistakes and improve your skills. You should also surround yourself with supportive people who will encourage you and celebrate your achievements.

Discipline


CPA Alex Ocitti was disciplined in his studies and his time management. He followed a strict study schedule that he designed for himself. He allocated enough time for each paper and each topic. He also balanced his studies with other aspects of his life, such as exercise, rest and socialization.


He says that discipline is essential for success in any endeavor. Without discipline, you will not be able to stick to your plans and achieve your goals. You will be easily distracted and procrastinate on your tasks. You will also compromise on the quality of your work and your performance.


To be disciplined, he advises that you should set realistic and specific goals for yourself and track your progress. You should also create a conducive environment for your studies, free from noise and distractions. You should also reward yourself for your achievements and punish yourself for your failures.


CPA Study Packs


CPA Alex Ocitti used CPA study packs as his main study material for the CPA course. CPA study packs are comprehensive and updated study guides that cover all the topics and concepts of the CPA syllabus. They are prepared by experienced tutors who are experts in their fields. They also include practice questions, answers and explanations that help you test your knowledge and understanding.


He says that CPA study packs are invaluable for CPA students who want to pass their exams with flying colors. They provide you with all the information and guidance that you need to master the CPA course. They also save you time and money that you would otherwise spend on other sources of study material.


To benefit from CPA study packs, he advises that you should use them as your primary source of study material, but not as your only source. You should also supplement them with other resources, such as textbooks, journals, online courses and lectures. You should also revise them regularly and apply them to real-life scenarios.


Conclusion


CPA Alex Ocitti is an inspiration for all CPA students who want to complete their CPA course in record time. His story shows that it is possible to achieve this goal with motivation, discipline and CPA study packs. If you follow his tips and advice, you too can become a successful CPA in Uganda.


Some advice for aspiring accountants who want to succeed in their career:

  • The CPA course is very challenging and requires a lot of dedication. Make sure you allocate enough time to study and practice the concepts and skills.

  • Collaborate with your peers. When I was a student, I benefited from joining discussion groups with other students and sharing our insights and doubts.

  • Strive to be professional, not just to meet the minimum standards. Professionalism is a valuable quality that will serve you well in your work and in your contribution to society. Aim to provide accurate and ethical advice to your clients and the government, and perform your tasks with integrity and excellence.
