Yash Patil, 16, is the only one out of the ten students in the city who scored 100% to opt for commerce. While the rest want to pursue engineering and have chosen science, Patil wants to become a chartered accountant.
Patil was delighted to see his name on the first merit list at RA Podar College and plans to complete his admission procedures soon. "I have always wanted to become a CA. My ultimate goal is to be part of the Indian Administrative Services (IAS)," said Patil.
"I have been privileged to get good education but many children are unable to go to primary schools. I hope I can help in some way," added Patil, who was a student of Indian Education Society's (IES) Modern English High School in Dadar.
Patil has started preparing for his Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations by regularly reading books and newspapers.
