Local boy Sanjay Nawandhar has secured first position in the all-India Chartered Accountant Final exam held in May 2014 by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI).
"I was sure of my top position in the exam as I had earlier secured 6th and second place in the first and second stages of this exam. I hope to work in the corporate finance sector. I want to work initially in Mumbai, though ultimately I want to work abroad," said Nawandhar.
Nawandhar’s father is a manager in a cold storage plant.
Nawandhar completed his schooling from DAV School in Vaishali Nagar and completed his graduation last year from Rajasthan University.
His elder sister, who is also a chartered accountant, inspired him to excel in the finance sector.
All seven students from ICAI’s Jaipur chapter secured places in the top 50 slots in the all-India examination. Kritika Khandelwal secured 11th place, Sumit Kanodi 14th, Vikas Jindal 17th, Rajat Khandelwal 21st, Anshul Bajaj 35th and Sanjay Chandak 45th.
In all, 2,206 students appeared in both parts of the CA final exam in May 2014 from the Jaipur centre; of these, 203 cleared the exam. The success rate this time was 9.2%, slightly higher than national average of 7.29%.
