Siddharth Agarwal


PlaceholderCA Siddharth Agarwal comes with tons of practical knowledge in the field of auditing. He had been a statutory auditor in KPMG Chennai for the almost 2 years. He has an excellent academic record throughout. He was a school topper and pursued Science stream in La Martiniere for Boys preparing for IIT JEE.

He is a Rank holder in CA Final (Nov 2009, Rank 19) as well as CA PEE-II (May 2007, Rank 43).

As he wanted to teach CA Final Law with poise, he decided to master the subject and pursued CS. He flew down to Kolkata on 17th Dec 2011 after his stint at KPMG Chennai and appeared for the CS Final exam on 25th Dec. With 7 days of gruelling effort he managed to secure All India 7th Rank in CS Final Dec 2011.

He believes in relentless improvement - his style of teaching, attention to details and tempo improves nonchalantly with every succeeding batch. His recorded classes are carved to perfection so much so that after attending his lectures at franchisees, students are reluctant to take theory classes elsewhere.

His command over Theory papers and enervating focus on details is awesome.

He has authored impeccable Text books for CA Final and IPCC students. His material is very popular amongst the students as it is not a copy paste job but rather class notes itself explained in simple vocabulary so that students don't have to break their heads gasping over the humongous syllabus.

Teaching Pedagogy:

  1. In depth knowledge of provisions is imparted to students mingled with practical experiences and case studies so that the subject seems practical rather than theory.
  2. 100% syllabus coverage and past term papers are discussed in class.
  3. Complete Dedication to teaching so that students can imbibe the same and replicate it in their performance.
  4. Material can never replace classroom teaching.
    • a. The subject gets covered in totem.
    • b. Retention level is very high.
    • c. Presentation of answers as per ICAI examiner's stand.
    • d. Learning of provisions in class rather than at home.
  5. It is not very hard to score 70+ in Law and Audit. But a student frequently ignores these subjects. The hit or miss strategy and selective study are doomed to get poor results. Theory papers just like practical classes deserve thorough learning.
  6. Presentation can never win over content - which is why ICAI focuses on content of your answers and not on your writing style. Superior writing style in exam is a myth.

Karan’s affair with Excel

My first encounter with excel happened while pursuing FRM part 2 and it was love at first sight. After that I attended various excel modelling trainings and read some great books to show my love. In last two years I have tried to compile and build model for every topic in Finance and the effort is still going on. Also quite fascinating is when I see back that I have built a whole lot library of Books on modelling which makes me more passionate. In the journey many people were concerned and frustrated that I was leaving behind advanced software technologies like MATLAB, SAS to go design a few models on Microsoft’s toy named Excel !!! But Excel had hit my first love. I was thoroughly enjoying the amount of creativity and freedom Excel was offering, least bothered about what my resume will read. Later on I learnt some of these software’s and realized that they are very easy to work on since I knew how the entire algorithm works in excel. Had excel been missing it would have been frustrating to me to understand what the software is doing. So in my belief, not hurting anyone’s sentiments, excel takes you through the algorithm loyally comparing with these software’s which are just click and go. I wanted to ensure that just like me, commerce graduates should not be left behind because of their poor Mathematical and coding skills which developed in me a passion for teaching in excel.
