Offering Value Based Coaching for CA Aspirants
Once Former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru claimed Chennai as the intellectual capital of India and since then the city has been vehemently involved in maintaining this title. This city has made numerous contributions in the field of education and one among them is Sri Sankara Coaching Centre, India's oldest and premier institution providing coaching classes for the Chartered Accountant aspirants. Established in the year 1979, Sri Sankara has tutored more than 3,50,000 students of which a large majority has successfully emerged as qualified Chartered Accountants with All India Ranks in their debut attempts.
The institute was set up by R. Nagarajan, a chartered accountant along with his wife Rajalakshmi Nagarajan as a small centre with few students. However, today it has grown in a big way as a premier institution, which guides the students for their success in the challenging professional courses. "All the credits for our success go to the excellent performance of the students and the dedicated efforts of the experienced faculties," says M. S. Niranjhan, Director - Administration & Students Welfare, Sri Sankara Coaching Centre (SSCC).
Throughout these years, the alumni of Sri Sankara have been placed across the globe in the position of chief financial officer, chief executive officer, chartered accountants, group financial controllers, financial controllers, senior accounts manager and so on.
Institute of Chartered Accountant of India (ICAI) provides elaborate study materials and allied study resources for the students pursuing Chartered Accountancy Course. Apart from the study materials given by ICAI, the institute also provides supplementary study materials in simplified language to facilitate the students with a familiarity over the subject. "We have a team of 42 faculty members who collectively make the study plan and this team also effectively acts as mentors for the students pursuing chartered accountancy," pinpoints Niranjhan.
Along with the training, the mentors impart appropriate revision classes for all subjects before main exam. "After the question paper discussions, students are given a quick revision and running notes. To ensure individual attention, we have limited number of students per batches," says Niranjhan. The institute follows an exam-oriented approach with complete syllabus coverage. Other features associated with the institute are the individual attention, innovative learning and the interactive sessions for better conceptual clarity. "Students are assisted with the recorded video lectures for the missed classes," adds Niranjhan.
The institute has two centres in Chennai; one in Mylapore and another one in Mambalam. These two locations were chosen by the management in order to bridge the teaching and learning essentials of students and mentors. Being in these central locations, Sri Sankara conducts classes for CA foundations, CA intermediate and CA finals. Throughout these years, the alumni of Sri Sankara have been placed across the globe in the position of chief financial officer, chief executive officer, chartered accountants, group financial controllers, financial controllers, senior accounts manager and so on. "In these entire thirty-eight years of journey, we have strived to fulfill the dreams of numerous CA aspirants and as we move on, we would like to present the country with more chartered accountants," concludes Niranjhan.
