An interview with Alisha Savla who scored 72% and topper of Ghanshyamdas Saraf Girls College.


First of all, A Hearty Congratulations to you on this Brilliant Success!

1. Were you expecting to top in the exams?
I only had one pre-defined goal that was to come into distinction. The thought of getting into the top rank never came into my mind, for me to maintain a consistency in my grades and marks was important. And this could be said as an added sweet ingredient in my TY result.

2. To whom would you credit this success to?
There are people to whom I would like to give credit to

1. the Almighty GOD who blessed me everyday

2. My Family who supported me and provided with all the comfort and things that I needed

3. My teachers who were always ready to solve all my doubts and help me in every manner they could.

4. My friends who always motivated me that “ Alisha you can do it, just go for it. Try your level best.”

5. And last but not the least the notes that I got from management paradise which gave the summary of all books that were necessary to study for exams.

3. Did you start preparing right from the first day of your TYBMS?
Actual preparation for my exams was just one month before the exam but, I never missed any lecture of my college and with having all the fun in lecture I to concentrated in the lectures and this was the most beneficial thing for me. With this I always use to give my internals sincerely so that at least I was prepared for some topics before the actual preparation of the exam. Students generally take the internals very lightly but it is the best way to prepare for the exam as the topics for the internal are small and are freshly done in the class.

4. How did you allot time to different subjects?
My allotment of time was on a random base, i.e. it depended upon my interest for the subject on a particular day. But I always made sure that I practice the 2 the practical subjects that we had at least one hour a day. This helped me a lot to increase my speed and accuracy. That matter a lot in completing the paper during exam.

5. Did you follow a self-made timetable? And how many hours did you study per day?
There was no pre-defined time table that I followed , nor there was a deadline that I had to study for some particular hours in a day. That all depended on the need. If I had an internal next day I would study or else I wouldn’t.
But yes during the time of my exam I had time table which included at least 5 hours of study for me as well as my friends. And it was mandatory for my friends and me to follow it.

6. Had you joined any coaching classes or was it just self-study?

As QMB was a practical subject which needed a constant practice i and my Friends had arranged for a sir who is the best faculty for QMB I have ever meet. Rest all the subjects were self study.

But the bottom line here is that you join classes or you don’t its your approach towards the study that will help you to reach your goal.

7. I’m sure you must be getting bored/tired after long study hours of the day. What was your source of entertainment?
As I said that I studied for long only during my study leave so, at that time I use to watch some comedy serials on TV, have a conversation with friends on the phone, once a week we even went for movies and Mac D.
Keeping this aside this last one – one and a half month entire semester we all friends used to do a lot of fun in college.

8. 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 don’t know it was my fortune or what, I saw 3 idiots and took inspiration from that. Since my childhood I always keep my family photo with me which reminds me that I have someone who is waiting for me at my home and loves me a lot.

With regards to stress management whenever I felt tensed of frustrated I use to close my eyes and lie down for some time leaving aside all the things. My dad is my biggest motivator and he always told me one thing “ Beta try your level Best don’t worry about the grades we are always there with you and we know that you can do it.” This sentence helped me allot and I never got the so called exam fever.

9. How did you manage time during the preparation leave just before the exams?
I have already answered this Question ahead.

10. Do you think going through the past University papers is of any help?
Yes! It was very beneficial for me I just studied that for my exams.

11. What message would you like to give to the coming batches of TYBMS students?

I know as a student what all pressures we face from family and society but always remember one thing that if we study for grades we may just pass but it won’t be beneficial to us in longer run. So I would say that be calm and never take studies as a boredom just try to love your studies and you will enjoy it.

And one more important thing for my mobile addicted friends please at least during the time of exams keep your cell phones away. That would help you to concentrate on your studies more,

Here I would also like to add one more dialogue of 3 idiots “ success ke piche mat bhago kabiliyat ke piche bhago, fir success jarur ayegi tumare piche “

12. After such a great achievement, what do you plan to do now? What are the future goals on your mind?

I m very keen to go into the teaching profession . and that’s what is my future goals. I would also like to work with Management Paradise as studies is my passion and teaching is my hobby.


Thank You for being so honest with your answers and giving us your valuable time. I’m sure reading this interview would be a great help and inspiration for the students. Congratulations once again and all the very best for you career!
