Interview with PRANALI SUNIL ANERAO, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper 2013-14, K.J Somaiya college of arts and commerce.



 How does it feel to be a Topper in the university exams? Whom will you credit your success to? What was your success mantra?

It feels immense sense of happiness and pride to be  topping the university exams from my college, but the credit, obviously with no second thoughts goes to my family for their backing of faith and support in me, my college faculties and not to forget my friends who believed in  me more then myself .


Did you prepare any timetable and please share your study strategy/exam tips to crack each subject of sem 5?

Many people will give all sorts of suggestions and strategies to crack exams in the easiest way, but I believe  that there is no standardized strategy for any thing in life . it is you who is responsible to carve your own strategy in whatever goals you want to accomplish because , “strategies are never copied and standardized but instead are tailormade .


Do you think BMS student require coaching classes or is self-study enough? Had you joined any coaching class for a particular subject?

Joining any coaching class or doing self studies is totally an individual decision, but yes I joined classes, they were for subjects like financial management , logistics and special studies in finance because these are the subjects which require expert supervision.


What was your specialization subject? Why did you opt for it?   

Specialization subject was  “FINANCE” . I opted it because out of the three streams specializations only finance and marketing were available, and out of the two options I preferred finance because it Is challenging and dynamic area of operation.


Can you list the textbooks you referred for all subjects?

Vipul, Himalaya and Rishabh publications .


Which was your worst paper? Why? Which was your best paper? Why?

Worst paper no doubt was “FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT”  and best paper was LOGISTICS.


Today, we often come across students committing suicide out of failure, depression or tension of exams. What do you have to say about this? Did you use any special techniques for stress management?

Success and failure, ups and downs are a part of life, no one can free themselves from these fluctuations , but committing suicide on account of failure  proves your mistake and  weakness .. instead take the longer route of retrying the goal  in whatever you have failed in.


The Black Book project contributing a significant part to the percentage, please share the experiences you had during the preparation of the project and how has it benefited you.?  

The topic for the black book project was “ GREEN MARKETING “ however talking about the experiences , I can say as the topic was marketing related , I had to carry out some field research of sample consumers on their opinion on it. This gave me an opportunity to get valuable insight about consumers changing behavior and their responsiveness towards a striking balance between price and green product attributes.


Did you pursue any additional courses/ internships alongside BMS? What are your future  plans?

I have not done any other courses or internship alongside pursuing B.M.S.


Any tips and advises for your juniors?

The only thing I can say is, like it is always said there are no shortcuts to success, and SUCCESS = HARDWORK + LUCK + LOVE AND SUPPORT OF YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS .  And last but not the least in any way “ BE HUNGRY FOR KNOWLEDGE AND NOT MARKS ..
