Learning maths was her passion and that is what helped Chennai girl, Shilpa K. Murthy emerge as the best lady candidate in the Chartered Accountancy Final Examination that was held in May 2016.

“Numbers and maths excite me,” said the 21-year-old girl, who also secured All India fourth rank in the same exam.

Shilpa was a school topper both in her Class X and Class XII examinations, securing All India Rank 10 in her Chartered Accountancy Entrance (CPT) examination and All India Rank 3 in her Company Secretary Executive (Inter) examination.

She simultaneously finished her bachelors in commerce through correspondence.  Shilpa now wants to specialise and focus on taxation.
