Mercury Institute of Management, founded in 2001, is synonymous with ACCA in Sri Lanka. Being one of the six ACCA Platinum Status Learning Providers in the MENASA region and the only one of its kind in Sri Lanka, Mercury continues to prove its academic excellence through high achievements at every ACCA exam session. Mercury is proud to have been the inspiring force behind many students who obtained the Sri Lankan prizes for various subjects in the Skills and Professional Levels, and who have also managed to secure World Ranks in the December 2013 exam session. Fathima Shazreena Omar won the Sri Lankan prizes for papers F4: Corporate and Business Law and F6: Taxation, whilst being globally ranked 11th and 14th respectively. Sivakumar Rishikesh secured the Sri Lankan prize for F7: Financial Reporting and is currently ranked 15th in the world, while Dinushanth Ramanathan is also ranked 15th having secured the prize for F8: Audit and Assurance. Stave Lerrex Silva holds the prize for Professional Level subject P1: Governance, Risk and Ethics, with a world ranking of 17th. Archchana Vekneswaran, having scored an impressive mark for paper P3: Business Analysis, has been ranked 10th in the world, while simultaneously securing the Sri Lankan prize. Mercury also produced the prize winner for P4: Advanced Financial Management, a paper considered very useful in the corporate context, but extremely challenging with a world pass rate of only 42%; M.H. Navodya Hirumali also holds world rank 10th place for this subject. Last but most certainly not the least, Mercury also produced prize winners for more of the ACCA Professional Level Optional Papers: Mohamed Umar Fareez won the prize for P5: Advanced Performance Management, with an impressive world rank of 8th and a score that puts the world pass rate of 30% to shame, and B. Pujani U. Pathirana is the prize winner for P6: Advanced Taxation, ranking 31st. Mercury also nurtured 2 FIA prize winners: Dinuki Jinadasa obtained the Sri Lankan prizes for subjects Recording Financial Transactions, Maintaining Financial Records and Management Information, with world ranks of 5th, 4th and 2nd respectively; and Rashmi Fernando secured the prizes for Foundations in Taxation and Foundations in Financial Management and was ranked amongst the top 50 for both subjects.
