With The Financial management paper for BMS semester 5 turning out to be the most difficult paper, we sought some expert advice and got you tips from the guru’s to help you reduce your ATKT nightmares for the subject.

“Usually the KT papers are trickier than the Semester papers, but this time since the semester papers in themselves were so tricky we need to work equally hard”, advises Professor Vipin Saboo, Vipin Saboo Tutorials. “Instead of studying all chapters all over again, study the key chapters like cost of capital, capital structure and cash management thoroughly” says Professor Pawan Jhabak.

Professor Hardik Thakkar, Thakkar tutorials asks students not to stress up and practice past papers. They will defiantly help, he says. “Practice 4-5 sums on a daily basis”, he adds.

The FM paper generally has around 40 marks numerical and the rest is theory. As per Professor Vipin Saboo in Section 1 for the practical questions expected chapters are: Leverages, Receivables management Cost of capital, Capital restructuring and Case study type numerical on capital budgeting or cash management. In Section 2: Working capital management, Capital structure planning and Capital restructuring.

“Whatever you do, do it completely. Don’t do many incomplete chapters, instead do the key chapters completely” adds, professor Jhabak who will be conducting crash courses for the subject.

“Don’t get disheartened by poor marks, study logically and regularly, and you will definitely clear your ATKT paper with good marks” concludes Professor Thakkar, who too is starting crash courses for the KT batch.
