1. Interview with Raj Paresh Sheth –All India 1st Rank in CA May 2017

It really feels very good to be at the top. Being a CA was always my dream and getting an AIR 1 is like an icing on the cake. When I received a call from the President of the Institute at 11:14 am, I was on Cloud 9 and tears of joy had started flowing from my eyes. I felt – ‘Yes, dreams do come true!!’

Q. According to you, what are the intrinsic and external factors contributing to your outstanding success in the final exam.

According to me, focus, self-belief, perseverance and a strong will to succeed were some of the intrinsic factors that contributed to my success. Talking about the external factors. I would like to give credit to the support of my family, friends and their constant guidance and belief in me that contributed to my success.

Q. What strategy/study plan did you follow while preparing for the exam?

I followed a simple strategy of studying regularly from the very beginning and hence, not letting the pressure builds up during last 6 months or so. I used to prepare notes for theory subjects which I could revise during those 1.5 days we get during exams. For practical subjects, I used to practice problems and note the problems I couldn’t solve during the first revision so that I revise only those problems for my second revision. This way I could fighter out problems which I needed to practice during those 1.5 days before exams. I had also appeared for preliminary examination of my coaching classes in March, to understand time management techniques and to have a ‘dress rehearsal’ before the actual exams.

Q. How have been the inputs provided by the Institute contributed to your success in the examinations?

Inputs from the Institute have contributed majorly to my success. Th Study Material, the Practice Manual and the Revision Test Papers provided by the Institute were my first point of reference. It was only after I completed the reading of these inputs, did I go for other material like the notes provided by my coaching classes. It’s very sad that students ignore the Pronouncements in respect of Accounting Standards and Standards on Auditing provided by the Institute. Practising Illustrations from Pronouncements on Accounting Standard is a must. Reading the Pronouncements on Standards on Auditing and marking important paragraphs should also be done.

Q. What are your aspirations for the future? Do you have any specific career choice?

I would aspire to pursue my further studies in the field of Actuarial Science. For now, I would like to go into the field of International Taxation which is impressively
expanding in India.

Q. Do you think the Chartered Accountancy Course is the gateway to achieving professional excellence?

I definitely feel that Chartered Accountancy is the gateway to achieving professional excellence. Being a Chartered Accountant is just the beginning of an amazing journey, known as, Professional Career. It gives a launching pad for your career, which you can leverage and achieve excellent heights as you go further in life.

Q. How would you motivate the youngsters joining this course?

Have your goals set and have your ways defied – be focused. Further, there will be times when you will be in a low phase of your life. Never give up. Remember that there is always a sunshine after a dark night. Be positive.

All the best! 

2. Interview with Agathiswaran S – All India 2nd Rank in CA May 2017


Q.How does it feel to be at the top?

It gives me great pleasure at the thought of having secured AIR – 2 in CA Final Exams. Getting to know your results directly from the Hon’ble President of ICAI is the highlight and the feeling cannot be described in words.

Q.According to you, what are the intrinsic and external factors contributing to your outstanding success in the final exam.

I must definitely thank my parents, teachers, my principal and God Almighty for their support and guidance. That apart, one has to work hard and try to cover the entire syllabus. So, time management is critical both during the preparations and in the exam hall. It is extremely important to remain focused during the study holidays and exams. I was fully cut off from the Social Media during the last few months before exams. It helped me a lot to focus on the subjects and save precious time.

Q.What strategy/study plan did you follow while preparing for the exam?

My plan was to cover the entire syllabus and not to do any selective study. I did prepare a timetable for the last 4 months and allocated time amongst the various subjects as per my needs and I stuck with it. It is important to revise as many times as possible. I also attended the model exams conducted by ICAI which was really helpful in my preparations for the main exams.

Q.How have been the inputs provided by the Institute contributed to your success in the examinations?

I extensively used the Study Material and Practice Manual of the Institute for my preparations. Practice Manual has a very good database of questions. Apart from that I also used RTP and Select Case Laws and Supplementary study material for Direct and Indirect Tax Laws which really helped me in securing good marks in my exams.

Q.What are your aspirations for the future? Do you have any specific career choice?

I would like to get into either Management Consultancy or Corporate Banking.

Q.Do you think the Chartered Accountancy Course is the gateway to achieving professional excellence?

Definitely, CA course is a gateway to achieving professional excellence. It opens up opportunities in varied and diverse fields. Plus, the rigors that we undergo during this CA course makes us tough and gives us the confidence and belief that anything is certainly achievable if only we have the necessary dedication and focus.

Q.How would you motivate the youngsters joining this course?

CA is a very rewarding course but it comes at a cost. It is important to sacrifice certain things if we are to achieve our goals because I feel the person who sacrificed the most will achieve the greatest success. Ultimately, our efforts will be rewarded. During preparations, we should think about the results day and the happiness that we would give to our parents and society when the result comes out as “PASS”. When we do that, we will automatically give our best and leave the rest to God.

3. Interview with Krishna Pawan Gupta– All India 3rd Rank in CA May 2017

 

Q.How does it feel to be at the top?

The feeling is amazing and its memory will stay with me forever. My parents were delighted by my results and that was the most important thing for me.

Q.According to you, what are the intrinsic and external factors contributing to your outstanding success in the final exam.

The support from my family was a very important part of my success. Also, for CA Examinations and especially for CA Final, a lot of dedication is required and I think the focus on studies helped me to crack the exams. Enough emphasis needs to be given on maintaining good health too as the examinations go on for more than two weeks and one cannot afford to miss even a single day of preparation in the last few months before the examination.

Q.What did strategy/study plan you follow while preparing for the exam?

I ensured that I devoted equal time to all the subjects since each of the papers carry equal weightage. I tried to solve the practice manual multiple times for practical subjects and also every day I would try to do theory subjects in the morning and practical subjects in the morning. I tried to do 2 practical subjects once before going on study leaves and the balance subjects, as well as the revision of those 2 subjects, was done during the study leave as it helped to relieve the pressure of at least those 2 subjects.

Q.How have been the inputs provided by the Institute contributed to your success in the examinations?

Institute material is very helpful especially the practice manual. Practice manual provided very good practice questions and also helped in applying the provisions learned for subjects like the law. A practice manual is very much an indispensable tool for success at the CA Final level.

Q.What are your aspirations for the future? Do you have any specific career choice?

My aspiration is to lead a multinational corporation. I would enjoy working in the industry or pursuing careers in consulting or investment banking to help me broaden my understanding of business.

Q.Do you think the Chartered Accountancy Course is the gateway to achieving professional excellence?

Absolutely. Our curriculum ensures that the concepts learned in theory are put to the application during the article ship period. Also, this course is one of the best courses since it covers diverse areas like finance, audit, taxation, compliance etc. which makes CA professionals truly unique and a very important part of the economy.

Q.How would you motivate the youngsters joining this course?

To all my friends who are about to join this course or who have just ventured into this course, I would like to tell that this course will polish your skills in the best possible manner and will give a deeper understanding of the legal and conceptual framework of our economy. The subjects are very relevant and it’s enjoyable to read those subjects. Also, the members of our Institute are respected not only in India but the entire world. Just stay focused and I am sure all of you will make your family and the nation at large proud!
