Default Yes!

First of all good luck for ur result!...Now, CS is a serious task, but given u use the proper tools...it becomes more of a joke!...The only things u need for the exam are First Aid and a study partner...thats all! Its totally doable in a months time...regardless of ur ck result u should take cs in January because CS dates are very tricky to get once u cancel....Again, both First Aid and the study partner are indispensible!! U CANNOT pass the exam without either of them...u need nothing else..the key is practicing with ur study partner again n again and again!

I don't really have a proper SP for practising the cases
can I do it alone? Will i be able to pass CS without a practice buddy?

Default NO!

Im waiting for my results of cs and the answer to ur question is simple...NO! I studied without a partner and only in the last two weeks i got some skype partners and occasionally practiced live with someone...eventhough i felt well prepared i found the exam tough...so if u dont have a partner find one! you said ur a student, so if ur still home you can easily get one of ur friends to practice with u...or ask a senior or anyone for that matter!...But u need a partner and first aid..no way u can do it without any of these two,..trust me every day is torture for me coz im so uncertain about my result now!

and while ur looking for a live partner u can always start practicing with someone on skype...u can easily find partners on this forum...and i think this would probably be the best way for u to start since ur anxious about ur result...but i do recommend atleast 10 days of hardcore practice with a live sp...
