Kathmandu, Jan 24. The British Professional College (BPC), a sister school of The British College (TBC), is very proud to announce that Riya Manandhar, an ACCA student who ranked second in the world for her exam results in 2023, has once again achieved World Topper status.
By scoring 98% in her Financial Management, Riya managed to score the second highest in the whole world. And this isn’t her first success as, at just 20 years old, she achieved the highest mark worldwide for her paper on Performance Management (PM), receiving 91% in the ACCA March 2022 examinations. And this followed her success the previous year, in which she received 98% in her Taxation paper, also making her first in the World.
The ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) programme is the largest and fastest-growing international accountancy body in the world. With over 535,000 students and 233,000 fully qualified members spread across 179 countries worldwide, it is a globally recognised body. So, by ranking first and second in her exams, Riya has received higher marks than thousands of students completing the same papers across the globe.
When asked about what helped her to achieve such success, Riya said, “I joined TBC for the ACCA programme primarily because of the world-class facilities and reputation of the tutors here”. She said of her experience that, “Students get all kinds of support during their journey towards ACCA at BPC” and credited the tutors who supported her throughout her preparation towards examinations.
In response, the ACCA Programme Manager at BPC, Dipendra K Shrestha, has said of her achievements, “The ACCA course here at the British College has a fantastic reputation in Nepal and we are incredibly proud of Riya’s achievement. It is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and intellectual curiosity. We are very proud of her. She is an inspiration to us all and we are honoured to have had the opportunity to work with such an exceptional student”.
