1) Tell us about yourself?

I’m a happy go lucky  girl because I have learnt to take turbulent times in my stride.
2) How does it feel to be a Topper of the college in TY Sem V exams? 

It feels like I’m on cloud 9 and I believe every moment of joy is always cherished.

3) Whom will you credit your success to? 

To begin with my professors for their guidance and my family for their motivation and moral support.

4) Did you start preparing from the first day of your TY Sem V? 

No not really, I believe in diligence. Route learning is difficult, understanding concepts and explaining them with examples would surely be better.
5) How did you study for Sem V? 

I referred to all the books recommended by my professors.

6) Which are the easy subjects in Sem V?

Nothing is tough or easy..It’s the way you look at it.

7) Any special way of writing the answers? Do you write answers in bullet points or in paragraphs?

I believe that it’s the content which matters rather than the length of the answers. Be it bullet points or paragraphs your answer should consist of all what you know in that context. Be it facts or figures your answer needs to prove to the examiner that you deserve excellent marks.

8) How do you crack case studies in theory and practical subjects?

I’m a person who likes to know the depth of everything I do, so I think this attitude plays a part in my favor when it comes to attempting case studies.

9) Did you draw any diagram in any paper? Is it mandatory? Does it help to get more marks?

Pictures speak louder than words but when words can do the magic avoid wasting time drawing something tedious and difficult to explain. Where necessary complete your answer with diagrams.
10)Any specific study pattern adopted i.e. timetable / how many hours per subject per day etc.?

I can’t keep up with a time-table. Allotting time for a subject is not what I do, I prefer preparing for a paper till I feel I’m cent percent ready to attempt an examination for the same.
11) How do you fight against mood swings and distractions during exam preparation?

I’m a goal determined person, nothing comes my way when it comes to exams. But taking breaks during studies surely helps.
12) If you are made the Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University, what changes would you like to initiate in Indian education system?

Wow!! That would surely feel great but as Voltaire had said, “With great power, come great responsibilities” being the VC of Mumbai university would mean determining the future of India… Well in that case the education system needs to be more practical. More foundation courses and certificate programs will surely add a silver lining to the current situation
13) Many students prepare sincerely but constantly live under fear that they are not from big college / not from English medium and eventually lose confidence. What message would you like to these students?

Be it Stephen Hawking, Beethoven all have faced odds in life…. Not being from an English medium or lacking the confidence to speak fluently should never reduce your zeal to achieve your goals in life. Diligence, dedication and devotion is all it takes to overcome inhibitions.

14) Through this struggle and success, what have you learned? What is the wisdom of life and competition? 

Yesterday was but a dream, Tomorrow is only a vision but, a well lived today makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Living in the moment without worrying about what life has in store for us is what I have learnt.

15) Your feedback/suggestions for is the “go to site” for any BMS graduate. Its information is surely helpful for everyone. Thank you for being the anchor to all our troubles.
