Nandini Agarwal, a resident of Morena, Madhya Pradesh, made remarkable strides in her education and career. She exhibited exceptional academic prowess by passing her 10th-grade board exams at just 13 and her 12th-grade exams at 15. Her achievements culminated in a Guinness World Record at the age of 19.
Recognized by Guinness Records as the world’s youngest female chartered accountant, Agarwal earned the top rank in the CA final examination when she was only 19 years, 8 months, and 18 days old as of November 29, 2021. Her final CA exam in July 2021 saw her score an impressive 614 out of 800 (76.75%), surpassing 83,000 other candidates.
Agarwal’s journey towards this remarkable feat began when a Guinness World Record holder visited her school during her 11th-grade year. Inspired by this encounter, she resolved to achieve a record that would be challenging to surpass, setting her sights on the demanding CA exams.
Facing difficulties in securing an apprenticeship due to her young age, Agarwal persisted through setbacks, emerging even more determined and resilient.
Her brother, Sachin, played a crucial role in her success, serving as her biggest supporter and cheerleader. Sachin, aged 21, also achieved an impressive rank of 18th in AIR in 2021, securing 568 out of 800.
Both siblings, alumni of Victor Convent School, excelled academically, topping the Morena district with a 94.5% score in class 12 in 2017. Nandini’s journey was unique as she skipped two classes to reach her current academic level.
Their parents, Naresh Chandra Gupta, a tax practitioner, and Dimple Gupta, a homemaker, provided the foundation and support for their exceptional achievements.
