“Do your best and leave the rest” says Amna Javed Hussain, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper 2013-14, Royal College


An Interview with Amna Javed Hussain, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper of Royal College, Mira Road (East) who scored 81.42% (GPA score – 6.85)



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

Being a topper in the university exam feels great and I am really thankful to a lot of people out there. Of course my parents, my family and professors were always there to support and help me out with everything.


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

Yes, I prepare a schedule for everything in my life and that’s how things work out. The only strategy to crack 5th SEM is “STUDY SMART AND NOT HARD”

I have seen a lot of people doing well at college exams and in class test and they slog too much and study everything whether it’s important or not, that’s wrong study smartly and whats needed, don’t waste your time.


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

I had joined coaching classes for finance and I think if you don’t take up classes then also you can perform pretty well in SEM 5.


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

Of course it was Finance. Marketing had too much theory and the same concepts repeated while finance is something interesting and it’s really a good going subject, hence, I opted for finance.


  • Can you list the textbooks you referred for all subjects?

Rishabh publication provides good textbook.


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

Financial management or FM was a dicey one but at the end I scored 50 out of 60 so that’s not bad and all papers were good, nothing such that worst and the best paper.


  • 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?


I think it’s also correctly said that “FAILURES ARE THE PILLARS TO SUCCESS”

Committing suicide and getting into depression is not the solution, come on, be a grown up and face what life throws upon you, such students should deal with the situation rationally and instead of sitting and crying in a corner they should look out for the next corrective step that has to be taken by them at that particular point of time.


  • 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.

“BLACKBOOK” was a great learning experience. When I began with the project I had no clue as to what was supposed to be done but later it all happened.

My topic was “THE FUTURE OF INDIAN POLITICS” and the viva was superb and I scored 92 out of 100 in my project work so it was really the hard work that gave out good scores.


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

No, I didn’t pursue any additional course, looking forward for part time studies along with a job.


  • Any tips and advises for your juniors?

This advice is only for 5th SEM, study smartly and with full focus because entire 3 years are pretty simple but the 5th SEM comes with a lot troubles.
