Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What benefits do we get when we enrol for this competition?

One of the key benefits is the application of what you learn in the courses in real life situations. If you would like to build a career in finance and want a deep practical understanding of the subject then this courses serve as a good starting point. In addition to the Certification process, and the benefits of learning the course, you also get help in a guided live project, and a mock interview and career counselling session with FinShiksha. Of course, there are cash prizes too! 

  1. Are FinShiksha courses better than other courses?

Well, our answer would be biased 🙂 However, what we can say is that there are two definite salient features in our courses.

Firstly, the application of the learning to a real-life scenario using a guided live project.

Secondly, one of the key differentiating factors at FinShiksha is that we assume that participants come from differing backgrounds and have different expectations from courses. So, while the standard content remains the same, we try and give some exercises/additional videos to participants that help them with weaker areas. So, there is a degree of hand-holding even in a self-paced online program. And most importantly, the best part about our programs is the final online test. Its open book, and untimed. You can use all resources available to you. By doing this, we are making this as close to real life as possible. Do not know a concept – use a book, use internet, ask a friend, but in doing all this, ensure that you learn a new concept, even as you are attempting the final test. In all, we can vouch for a unique learning experience! 

  1. Can I enrol for more than one course?

Yes, of course. There is no limit to learning. Also, should you really do well in both those, and get Certified in both those, you get to win prizes in multiple courses too. 

  1. Can I take part in the competition without enrolling for a course?

Well, we are sorry but that cannot happen. Ideally, we are looking at someone who want to learn the analysis part and apply it in the project. The Learning is the primary reason, and the competition itself is a by-product of the learning. Hence it is primarily for those who would want to learn and apply. If you already know the stuff, no real reason for you to prove it. 

  1. What is the broad process of the FinShiksha Learning Championship?

– The candidate enrols for one or more programs of FinShiksha – listed under your year. There are two courses for First Year students and three courses for Second Year students.

– Upon Enrolment, you get access to the program content.

– Candidate must go through all the videos and appear for the final certification test.

– Final certification test occurs in batches – we conduct certification exam in slots. During FLC 2023 – there will be 2 slots to appear for the exam. You can choose any slot to give the test.

– Clearing the test (Scoring more than 60%) gives you the Certification.

– Once you clear the final test, you submit a live project as specified in the program outline. This can be mentioned in resume too. Separate email can be provided by us for the same.

– Combined score of the test (70% weightage) and the Live Project (30% weightage) decide the final winners’ list.

– Top 3 candidates for each course (total 15) are selected as winners – based on the combined score of the Project and the Certification. We publish the list of Top 15 highest scoring students in each course (total 75 across 5 courses)

– Hurray – The winners get the prizes, and everyone is a master of at least one area in financial analysis!!

– Companies will evaluate the profiles of top students from First year for live projects & summer internships; and Top students from Second year for final placements and live projects. The decision to shortlist/reject the candidates would remain with the companies..

P.S. – If you do not get certified – do not lose heart. You get another shot at Certification in subsequent months post your attempt for the final test – Free of charge. However, you will not proceed further in the competition. 

  1. Is this a team event or individual event?

This is an individual event. But students from same college do collaborate while analysing a company during live project. This enhances learning as one student is exposed to multiple sector and the team can use the same analysis in college projects or other outside competitions as well.

Just to give you a perspective, last year students who pursued some of our courses and completed the Live project won competitions like HOLT Valuation Challenge, HSBC Investment Banking Challenge, Finalist in MOSL QGLP Challenge, CFA Research Challenge.

  1. How long do we have access to the courses?

You can access the courses for 3 years from your date of enrolment. 

  1. How much time does a course require to finish?

Each course has 8-10 hours of video content, and some practical exercises. Along with this, a project is embedded into the course. To finish the course content, and the project, average time taken is around 25-30 hours.

  1. Can you participate in competition via other listed courses?

No. Because the companies which will recruit from us will require the skillset of Analysis and Modelling. Hence curated courses are part of Championship.

That doesn’t stop you from learning other topics. You could choose any topic, pursue it and we will provide the same support as we will provide to championship participants. 

  1. Will this course be good in terms of exposure?

Again, we are going to have a biased answer. Just to cut short here, you could go through some of our blogs  and YouTube channel videos. If you think the above two things did add any value, then course will definitely add value.

11. I have already enrolled for competition eligible course/Analyst program before August 2023. Am I eligible for FLC 2023?

Yes, you are eligible. If you are part of Analyst Program or Purchased 2nd year course (EV/CA or IB) and now in 2nd year of MBA or Purchased 1st Year course (Finance Essentials or AFSA) and now in 1st Year of MBA then you are eligible for FLC 2023.
