Feels good to make my teachers and parents proud. They always backed me up, never pressurized. Always happy to give back to my college that has given me so much.
3) Whom will you credit your success to?
Teachers and Parents for supporting me and being there to help me each time I approached them.
4) Did you start preparing from the first day of your TY Sem V?
No ways.. Who does that?
5) How did you study for Sem V?
Just understood the concepts well and tried to analyze them with situations and examples. Never tried not mug up.
6) Which are the easy subjects in Sem V?
All of them.
7) Any special way of writing the answers? Do you write answers in bullet points or in paragraphs?
Yes, bullet points always help to give a clear picture of your answer without examiner needing to dig in and search them.
8) How do you crack case studies in theory and practical subjects?
Always be clear of each and every concept and then frame it with suitable head points/ diagrams so that your answer stays crisp.
9) Did you draw any diagram in any paper? Is it mandatory? Does it help to get more marks?
Yes I drew diagrams wherever I could. Though it is not mandatory, I feel it always helps us convey more information and also makes it easy for the examiner to judge the answer.
10)Any specific study pattern adopted i.e. timetable / how many hours per subject per day etc.?
No. Studied whenever I wanted. But covered as much as I could.
11) How do you fight against mood swings and distractions during exam preparation?
I never had any mood swings or distractions. Part of it maybe because I’m into sports and it requires us to be composed and focused at all times.
12) If you are made the Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University, what changes would you like to initiate in Indian education system?
I would inculcate more practical and hands on training rather than theory based curriculum.
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?
College name doesn’t matter as long as the student is focused in scoring well. Evaluation is standardized in all colleges on MU. Big colleges have become big due to students, so work hard and try to make your college big.
Not knowing English will make it difficult to frame good answers and explain the concept properly. So try hard on basic grammar and spellings beforehand.
14) Through this struggle and success, what have you learned? What is the wisdom of life and competition?
Confidence in every field is very important. It helps you stay focused on the task and achieve a positive outcome. I learnt that having short goals which lead to a big goal is always the way to go.
