Interview of Vijender Aggarwal
How does it feel to be at the top?
Ans. Th e feeling presently is a mix of happiness and contentment; moments like these are hard to come by and it really feels great when you get appreciated for all the eff orts that you have put in. More than the appreciation, what really matters is the sense of accomplishment that you experience, which reinforces your trust in your own abilities and motivates you to aim for bigger things in your life.
According to you, what are the intrinsic and external factors contributing to your outstanding success in the final exam.
Ans. Given that I just got around four months leave for my exams, I really had to back upon my conceptual understanding of the subjects and the ability to churn around the things quickly for getting me through the entire syllabus. Dealing with this huge and never ending syllabus is a task in itself and at times it becomes extremely important to act smartly and improvise the things. I would say a combination of smart work and correct guidance from creditable people at the right time was a key to nailing down the exams with a good result.
What strategy/study plan did you follow while preparing for the exam?
Ans. First and foremost, I managed to take coaching for two subjects only – SFM and DT and for DT, I could only attend around 30 percent of the classes and rest all the subjects I prepared on my own. I got my exam preparatory leaves near June end and from then on, it was a step-by-step journey towards completing the entire syllabus. I must admit that the syllabus was huge and I won’t be lying if I say that I couldn’t manage to complete my first revision thoroughly. As to how much time I spent studying every day, it would be around 8-10 hours of effective study with
weekly breaks in between to catch up with friends and movies. I am essentially a night person and I used to study at night and then go for swimming early in the morning. Th roughout, I never compromised on my sleep and just divided the entire time that I had amongst the subjects that I had to prepare.
I took one practical subject at a time and complemented it with a theory subject for 2-3 hours daily to maintain a proper balance between theory and practical. Th ese kinds of nitty-gritties are purely personal and driven by one’s own comfort but the overall focus should always be to cover the syllabus comprehensively in a time bound manner. With the amount of syllabus that we have to cover, I think it’s extremely important to prioritize things and execute
How have been the inputs provided by the Institute contributed to your success in the examinations?
Ans. Given the paucity of time, in all honesty it was not possible for me to refer to the detailed material provided by the Institute. I did refer to selected portions of the Practice Manual for a couple of subjects and had a quick glance of the RTPs released by the Institute at the dead end just to evaluate my preparation. Th at’s it.
What are your aspirations for the future? Do you have any specific career choice?
Ans. That’s like a million dollar question right now. I am currently working in indirect tax transaction advisory and its like one of the best niche work meant for CAs. Th ere are many options that are running through my mind presently but I haven’t taken a final decision yet. Ideally I would like to engage myself in some higher studies before dedicating myself to work completely. Some serious brainstorming needs to be done on this issue… let us see what developments take place on this front.
Do you think the Chartered Accountancy Course is the gateway to achieving professional excellence?
Accountants are the most technically sound persons that you would come across in so far as accounting, finance and taxation are concerned. At the same time, it’s extremely important to realize that today’s competitive world demands a complete person who not only is technically sound but who also complements his technical knowledge with his
soft skills. Considering the fact that the course is a distance-learning course, a large part of the onus is on the aspirants to focus on areas other than academics so as to ensure all round development
How would you motivate the youngsters joining this course?
Ans. People intending to join the course or those who have already joined it must be mindful of the challenges poised by the course. It may get demanding Pooja R. Pareek Ahmedabad Second Rank- CA Final November 2014 at times both academically and professionally during the article training stages but the entire learning improves you as a person and as a professional. For those who are aspiring to start their career in finance and accounting, this course provides a great platform to build your concepts from the scratch and the article training, if done from a respectable place, provides the much-needed practical exposure at a very early stage in your career.
I personally believe that the IPCC stage acts as the building block for your conceptual understanding of the subjects concerned and the Final stage provides you the opportunity to learn how things work practically in the real world. The course, if done in its true spirit and complemented with necessary professional traits and personality, definitely provides you the base from where you can aim for bigger and better things in your life.
