Nandini Agarwal, a resident of the small town of Morena in Madhya Pradesh, made remarkable strides in her education and career. She displayed exceptional academic talent by passing her 10th-grade board exams at the age of 13 and her 12th-grade exams at 15. Her journey culminated in her achieving a Guinness World Record at the age of 19.
Recognized by Guinness Records as the world’s youngest female chartered accountant, Nandini Agarwal achieved the highest rank in the CA final examination at the young age of 19, as of November 29, 2021. In her final CA exam in July 2021, she achieved an impressive score of 614 out of 800 (76.75%).
Agarwal embarked on her remarkable journey when a Guinness World Record holder visited her school during her 11th-grade year. This encounter served as her inspiration, leading her to set her sights on a challenging goal: achieving a record that would be difficult to surpass, with a focus on the demanding CA exams.
Facing difficulties in securing an apprenticeship due to her young age, Agarwal persevered through setbacks, emerging even more determined and resilient.
Nandini Agarwal’s brother, Sachin, played a vital role in her achievements, being her greatest source of support and encouragement. Sachin, who was 21 years old at the time, also made an impressive accomplishment by securing the 18th rank in the All India Ranking (AIR) in 2021 with a score of 568 out of 800.
Both siblings, who are alumni of Victor Convent School, excelled academically, topping Morena district by achieving a remarkable 94.5% score in their class 12 examinations in 2017. Nandini’s educational journey was truly unique, as she skipped two grades to reach her current academic level.
Their parents, Naresh Chandra Gupta, a tax practitioner, and Dimple Gupta, a homemaker, laid the foundation for their extraordinary achievements and provided unwavering support along the way.
Nandini’s determination and hard work are evident in her remarkable achievements, making her a source of pride for her hometown and the entire country.
