Bangalore: Srinidhi E.S. is a young, unassuming college student. What makes him different from lakhs of others his age is that he is the State topper in the Commerce stream of the second Pre-University Course. He has scored 585 marks out of 600, securing a percentage of 97.5. Srinidhi has scored 100 in Mathematics, 99 in Accountancy, Statistics and Sanskrit, 98 in Business Studies and 90 in English.
Speaking to The Hindu, the young achiever from Seshadripuram Composite Pre-University College said that although his parents wanted him to take up engineering, he was very keen on pursuing Commerce. “Most of my family members are chartered accountants. My father Sadagopan E.B. is a practising accountant. I naturally had an inclination for the commerce stream.”
Mr. Sadagopan is understandably proud. “We expected this as he has had an exemplary academic record. He has always secured the first rank, right from his kindergarten days.” Srinidhi, an avid basketball player and cricket fan, said that his professors at the college helped him a great deal. He said they were confident that he would secure the first rank.
