Interview with Niyati Narendra Rohilla, TYBMS Sem 5 Topper 2013-14, Bhavans College, Andheri (W) who scored  84.71% and GPA Score – 7.00



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 great to be a Topper and there are many people to whom I would like to credit my success, starting with my family who have been a great source of inspiration and support, my teachers who have always been helpful and guided me and of course my friends who kept on motivating me to do better.

My Success Mantra – Where there is a will, there is a way.


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

I had no particular timetable as such. I always use to pickup any random subject to study. But I made it sure that I allot adequate time to my practical subjects, i.e. Financial Management and Special Sudies in Finance. Class tests and assignments were of great help.


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

It depends on the student whether they want to go for self-study or join some classes. I had joined classes for subjects like Financial Management, Special Studies in Finance and Logistics. Joining classes helped me to make my basic concepts more clear and thus perform better.


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

Finance was my specialization subject. I opted for it as my interest lies in Finance and I would also like to pursue my Masters in the field of Finance. And ofcourse, when compared to Marketing, Finance becomes much more scoring.


Can you list the textbooks you referred for all subjects?

I referred to Rishabh Publications for all the theory subjects while Vipul Prakashan for the practical subjects.


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

When I compare all my papers, I can say that Financial Management was a bit lengthy and confusing paper while Special Studies in Finance was the best among all.


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?

It is quite sad and disappointing to hear young students committing suicide just because of failures and depressions. The young generation are the future of India and the future cannot be and should not be so weak. They should realize the effect of this step on their loved ones. Rather than going into depression, they should gather themselves and start fresh.

Whenever you feel low or depressed or tensed, please talk your heart out to anyone you feel comfortable with. Doing this will make you feel light and will help you in performing better.


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.

I had a very good experience while making the project. I learned many new things while doing the project. And it indeed boosts ones percentage.


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

No. I did not pursue any additional course or internship alongside BMS. I am looking forward to pursue Masters in Management Studies.


Any tips and advises for your juniors?

Never underestimate your worth by comparing yourself with others. Remember that you can always do better.
