SHAILEE CHAUDHARY- A FIGHTER
Do you feel that you have lost a few years which could have been utilised somewhere else? ~ Of course there used to be a time when I felt lack of motivation. When you see the articled trainees who joined after you, becoming CA earlier than you, you are bound to feel low. But when you have a firm determination of completing the task ahead, you can’t have second thoughts.
Some piece of advice for those who feel disappointed after not being able to clear their exam in their first attempt. ~Never consider lowly of yourself. If you have the will power to achieve something you definitely will. Talk to the people who can guide and motivate you and never stop working hard.
Do you feel that there might have been a change in your course of career because of big 4 firms? ~Yes, Big 4 firms help a lot in getting you good placements after completing studies. They develop you professionally. I had a little setback in the placement procedure despite the rank due to my articleship in a mid-size firm, but once you are in the industry what matters is your knowledge and hard work. 🔥 I have cleared my IPCC first group in 4th attempt and the second group in 5th attempt. It took me two attempts for the CA Final exam also, but the second one was a golden attempt and I got AIR 1 in CA Final. I passed the second group of IPCC in May 14, just before Nov 14, when my attempt for Final examination was due.
I had started my preparation for Final just after clearing my first group of IPCC when I started my Articleship training. No matter what, I never got disheartened and continued with my preparation for the Finals. Whenever I appeared for the second group of IPCC, I started my preparation for Finals and in spite of taking it for a failure I took it as another chance for preparation. When I appeared for finals for the first time in November 14, I knew I did not have much chance because of the lack of practice, thus I started preparing for the May 15 attempt of Finals without waiting for the results. And when May 15 results were out, I was more than elated to be the topper all over India. My hard work and perseverance had paid off at last.
