By Quintus Perera – Asian Tribune
Colombo, 18 January, (Asiantribune.com): It was a pleasant surprise for Ms Nilusha Fonseka when she heard that she has become the only World Prize winner for the May, 2008 CIMA exams, her greatest achievement, so far.
Twentyone year old Ms Fonseka is an old Ladies Collegiate and studies for CIMA along with her Bio Science (B.Sc) Degree at the Sri Jayawardenapura University. Ms Fonseka acknowledges that CIMA is a course of study that is agreeable to the Average student, since a person can do it at his/her own pace.
The outstanding feat is that Nilusha had to sit for a University Exam paper one hour prior to her Management Accounting Decision Management, CIMA exam paper, the very same paper that she won the World Prize award. Planning and time management was the key to her success.
In School she captained the Athletic team, and a school prefect. CIMA Institutes also promote their own extracurricular activities such as sports.
As the World Prize winner Ms Fonseka was awarded a cash prize by CIMA global and an award at the Bi-annual prize giving held in August, 2008.
