Balpreet, son of private firm employee, had to battle economic hardships at home to achieve his dreams, besides the vast syllabus.
Balpreet gave tuitions to students of his locality to manage his course fee. After passing out from St. Mary’s English High School, Bistupur, Balpreet started teaching Mathematics and Accounts to students of junior and senior sections so that he doesn’t have to put any financial burden on his father and elder brother. Then he joined CA course and used to study after his teaching job.
‘I had set my eyes on doing CA when I was in class 10 and after my class 12 I appeared for CPT exam and cleared it in first attempt and later took IPCC exam. I had to manage the time between my studies and my teaching job which sometimes got very hectic’, said Balpreet, adding, ‘the income from the tuitions helped me to get specialised coaching provided by reputed coaching institutes like Jain Classes and ETEN CA.
