Yash Manoj Kumar Goyal hailing from Jamnagar, Gujarat came third with 74.88 per cent.
‘This is my first attempt’
- “This is my first attempt, and I had prepared well and was expecting to clear both groups as well as getting a rank within 10. I did my article ship with CR chartered accountant C Narendran in Salem, but attended classes in Chennai at Prime Academy.
Sri Ram’s success mantra:
- “I used to study thoroughly on a regular basis”
- “For final exams, I spent only two to three hours each day.”
- “When I was in class 7, one of my relatives spoke to me about the CA course and also said I need not work under anyone if I clear the exam. This is what is ringing in my ears and I am yet to take a decision on whether to join any company or practise.”
Regarding Sri Ram’s family background, his father is a retired employee of a government transport corporation and mother works at district library.
