What it takes to be at the Top? The best answer can only be given by those who have just tasted it ..!!!
On 29th of January, as ICAI released its results for Nov 2008 PCC Exams we could see members in the forum responding to the facts that it was coming in. Members who cleared the exams were over the top and who were in the merit list just couldn't believe they were there... This was the general reaction ... But specifically we caught up with Dimpy Jindal (CA- PCC)- 1st Rank holder who shared with us her experience and her future plans...
PCC-1st Rank Holder.
Dimpy Jindal- A CAclubindia member
A very charming and realistic person- this is what we could deduce while chatting to her. She bore her own opinion and did not astray from her points even when we were trying hard to do so. She was a 7th Rank Holder in CPT exams held in Nov'06.
"Yes, I was overwhelmed but couldn't stop my tears rolling down. Can't help it!!! A Hansraj College student, I believe you need to plan your college, tuition and CA course very well if you really want to work out everything along with the practical training. Practical training is very important so we shouldn't neglect that aspect too and give our 100% to it as well. I give 95% weightage to self studies and 5% to tuitions. I would like to work in a Corporate Environment rather than working in a practicing firm. Also start-ups do attract me but depends what kind of work I'm involved in and whether it provides me the individual growth that I'm looking for. Here the brand I'm working with is of prime concern too as I would like to work with those who have the market's favoritism."
"There's no shortcut to hard work. So, while preparing yourself for the exams make sure you have given your best efforts. One more thing we tend to neglect before exams or a day before exams- calmness and sound sleep. Both are very very important, I made sure I slept at least five hours the day before my exams."
"Anything you pursue it's never easy to get there. But you need to do it with dedication and commitment. My parents, teachers have been guiding me throughout and here they are a catalyst too."
Clear thoughts and ready to venture out in the world of numbers and figures, we really appreciate her presence of mind and welcoming behavior.
