Ranjith Kumar Dasa Ramesh Babu of Bengaluru and Puneeta Goyal of Delhi have topped the professional and executive programmes, respectively, of the company secretaries examinations held in June 2017. The results were declared today, on August 25.

A direct entry candidate, who worked before sitting the CA exams, he opted for CS to “expand my scope of knowledge,” securing third rank in CS inter. “I was doing CA articleship for three years and gave my CA exams in May 2017. The CS exam was in June, just after a 15-day gap, but since a few papers in both the CA and CS exams were common my task was made much easier,” he says.
Studying for CS as well as CA had its challenges, “CA is more about numbers, it’s more analytical and CS is more legal - theory oriented,” he says.
To study for the CS exams he did not join any coaching classes and just went through the study material provided by the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI). The BCom (Hons) programme “gave me strong basics for all of this,” says the topper who believes that “Life throws many situations at you, if you see them as opportunities you win and if you feel these are problems you lose,” adds Ranjith Kumar.
