Kapurthala, September 14

Shubham Gupta, an alumnus of Anand Public Senior Secondary School, Kapurthala, has brought laurels to the city by securing 10th all-India rank in the CA exam.

A 93 per cent scorer in the CBSE Class XII (commerce) results, Shubham has been pursuing B Com through a correspondence from IGNOU, while also focusing on his CA preparations.

Son of a businessman, Ajay Kumar, Shubham has his plans clear, “I will be soon moving to Chandigarh. I have a start-up plan in my mind. Till the time I am able to roll it out, I will be starting my CA practice there.”

A resident of Shakti Nagar here, he said, “When I checked my result yesterday, I erupted with joy on seeing ‘pass.’ I checked on the portal of All India Institute of Chartered Accountants to check whether I made it to the merit list. I was excited to see when I made it to the merit list.”

Asked if he could confirm that he was Punjab topper, he said, “I am not sure, but it could be a possibility. I have not come across reports of anyone scoring better than me in the state.” Shubham’s score is 584, adding up the score of 282 in group I and 302 group II exam.

Shubham said he felt that his schooling mentored him for setting a goal and moving towards it in a planned way. “My school principal Dr Arvinder Singh Sekhon and my teacher Suresh Sethi have been a big support. My family, especially my mother Manisha Gupta, was my pillar of strength,” he says.

Dr Sekhon said, “When Shubham was a student with us, till three-four years back, we could see a spark in him even then and knew that he would surely make it big in his career. Even that time, he had his target of clearing the CA exam clear.”

On this occasion, Vikram Anand, school managing director, congratulated him. He motivated him and said he has brought fame to both the school and the Kapurthala city. Chairperson Varinder Kumari Anand and director Ruchi Anand also gave blessings to Shubham. School coordinator Nirmal Jyoti, Jyothishna, Jaswinder Kaur, Ranjita, Jasjit Walia, Ravinder Kaur, Loveleen and many others were present.
