According to sources in the media, girls shine a little brighter than boys, with the former scoring 27.26 per cent while the latter scored 26.08 per cent. Only 1.57 per cent of students passed the Old Courses, whereas 11.97 per cent of students passed the New Courses. Sachin and Nandini, pupils from Victor Convent School in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena area, graduated from class 12 in 2017. Nandini skipped two grades as a child and studied in the same grade as her elder brother since class 2. Their father works as a tax consultant, while their mother is a stay-at-home mom.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, BJP state president VD Sharma, and Congress leaders Chaudhary Rakesh Singh and Ashok Singh also tweeted congratulations after the brother-sister combo passed the exam. At the moment, their family is rejoicing over their extraordinary achievement.
The pandemic has had an influence on everyone’s life, including those of some aspirants, and has had a significant impact on their preparation. However, it benefited this brother-sister team because they had extra time to study and refine their themes.
Their Journey Together
Nandini has been in the same class as her brother since second grade because she missed two classes during her youth. In 2017, the two graduated from Victor Convent School in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena district with a class 12 diploma. They have a strong bond and always study together because they have been in the same class since the beginning.
They are each other’s biggest cheerleaders. “My brother and I have been studying together since we were in school,” Nandini explained. We also worked together on the IPCC and CA finals. Our strategy has been straightforward: we encourage one another while still providing constructive criticism.” “When we solve a question paper, he checks my answers and I check him,” she continues. There were times when I felt hopeless, but my brother’s encouragement helped me get back on track.” “It has worked pretty well for them,” the duo said while advising hopefuls to use the ICAI study material to ace the exam.
Nandini, highlighting a fundamental challenge encountered by female applicants as a result of their gender, stated, “In comparison to males, girls do not have as many opportunities to establish themselves. Boys are not required to give up if they are unable to pass a competitive exam in one or two attempts, whereas girls are not.”
“I was fortunate to have very supportive parents, but all parents should encourage their children to pursue their aspirations, whether they are boys or girls,” the adolescent continued.
