Interview with Sonam M. Chaudhary, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper 2013-14, Vikas college of Arts, Science and Commerce who scored 78.86% and GPA Score –6.86



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 awesome to be a called as a topper in the university exams. I give the credit of my success to my parents firstly, my teachers and everyone who motivated me to score good. There is no such success mantra. It depends on our dedication and seriousness towards whatever we do. Give your 100 %.


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

No, I didn’t prepare any timetable before the exams. I would study difficult topics from time to time so that I don’t forget them. Practical subjects were my first preference. I would like to share that everyone should complete the difficult topics first and then go for the easier ones.


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

I have joined coaching classes as I had taken specialization in finance and I needed to be clear with basics. Yes coaching is required as university comes up with tricky questions in practical subjects.  Coaching helps to at least understand the problems.


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

My specialization subject was finance as I find more scope for finance than marketing. Finance is interesting and with clear concepts you can score good marks.


Can you list the textbooks you referred for all subjects?

I did combined studying by referring books of Rishabh publication and Vipul prakashan


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

My worst paper was financial management as there were unexpected questions and I did quite silly mistakes. My best papers were SSF and service sector management as I could attempt majority of questions right.


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?

Suicide is not a solution for any problem. Be it an exam or any life challenge.  We must be positive and learn from our mistakes. There are many opportunities in life and failure in one situation cannot judge your capability. No , I did not use any special technique for stress management.


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

My project topic was ‘Growth of Retail Sector in India’. Yes it is a significant part of the percentage as it could raise my percentage. I came to know about the scope of development in retail sector in India. I, met people for interview and questionnaires. It was a great experience.

I prepared the project by collecting information from various sources, visiting malls to study the pattern of consumers. It gave me a lot of meaningful information about the biggest sector in India.


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

No, I did not pursue any additional courses or internship along with BMS.I want to continue my studies with MBA.


Any tips and advises for your juniors?

I would advise my juniors to work on journal entries from before if they want to choose specialization in finance. Be regular with practical subjects but do not neglect theory subjects considering them easy. Try to understand the concepts than just to byheart.  ALL THE BEST TO THE JUNIORS!!!!
