The results of the Company Secretaries (CS) executive program (old and new syllabus) were declared by the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) on Thursday. Vivek Choudhary, a 21-year-old student, has bagged the first position in the examination with flying colors.
Nothing was planned
"The feeling of seeing the word 'Pass' on the mark sheet is a very big achievement in itself as it is one of the most competitive examinations of the country. I did not expect to get any rank. For me, becoming a company secretary itself was a huge success," Choudhary said.
Difficulty level of the paper
"Unlike most professional courses, CS has a very comprehensive syllabus. There are nine subjects, multiple laws and thousands of provisions which sometimes get on your head. But all that is required to ace this challenge is a commitment, hard work, focus and a lot of sacrifices in terms of social media, parties, etc."
Plans for future
Vivek wants to become an investment banker. He further says, "But that is not my ultimate goal in life. My dream is to contribute towards the development of the society through education. I believe education is the guiding light for improved standards of living. If I am asked to define my ultimate goal concisely, it would be to bring out a revolution in education."
