Interview with Aashna Parikh, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper 2013-14, Lala Lajpat Rai college who scored 83% and GPA Score – 7
  • 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 amazing and very proud to top college. I give credit to the teachers of my college and my parents for all the moral support. Also my friends for constantly motivating me and having so much faith in me.
Mantra is to work smart and not hard.
  • Do you think BMS student require coaching classes or is self-study enough? Had you joined any coaching class for a particular subject?
I didn’t take any class. Attending college lectures is anyway a form of taking a class so why take another?!
  • What was your specialization subject? Why did you opt for it?
Finance. Opted for that since it is my strongest subject. I’m best with numbers and application rather than theory.
  • Can you list the textbooks you referred for all subjects?
Rishab publication textbooks.
  • Which was your worst paper? Why? Which was your best paper? Why?
Worse was logistic as the theory wasn’t great. Best was finance.
  • 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?
Well that should not happen as this is a part of life. Don’t give much stress and don’t expect. Just work and you’ll see results on their own.
  • 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.
Makes you do great research and pulls your grades up. Also reaches you how to conduct surveys.
  • Did you pursue any additional courses/ internships alongside BMS? What are your future  plans?
Yes I did. In a broking finance firm. Plan is to work and then do an MBA in the states maybe.
  • Any tips and advises for your juniors?
Just make sure you’ll attend lectures and score the best you’ll can in internals as they pull your grades up.
