A Thane youth secured seventh rank in the country in Chartered Accountant examination results declared on Wednesday. For 22-year-old Sanket Gada, what matters more than his rank is the fact that he cleared the CA exams, along with his older brother Mukund. While it was Mukund’s third attempt, Sanket cleared it in his first attempt.
“I am glad we made it together. I have just completed an articleship. Now, I want to focus on higher studies,” said Sanket, adding that he was exploring his options for higher studies. He is a commerce graduate from Mulund College of Commerce.
