1) Tell us about yourself?
My name is Satnam Metharu, I am a sikh raised in a convent school and currently a student of SIES college. Curiosity is my driving force. While selecting the bachelors degree after 12th i first went through the syllabus of each course. What i noticed was while other courses seemed diluted, Bfm subjects were concentrated and narrowed down to the field of financial markets. Financial markets: something I should have immense knowledge being a commerce student. The main beauty and USP of Bfm was that all the subjects had practical relevation and reflection. Everything in book could be seen in practical life. Those were enough reasons for me to pick Bfm and when i look back it feels like a life sapping decision.
2) How does it feel to be a Topper of the college in TY Sem V exams?
It develops an excitement to prepare even harder for the next sem.
My teachers, every lecture had knowledge to absorb. Not that my attendance was 100% but every single lecture attended helped me. Secondly i credit it to my close friends that made sure i live up to my potential.
No I didn’t. I prefer first understanding the subjects and their contents in detail, which creates a flow and then i know how to prepare for each of them.
All of the subjects in Bfm show a reflection in practical life. Its not that we learnt theory, its that we learnt what’s going on outside. I related my each of the subjects to current affairs and ongoing developments in them. That surrounded me with my syllabus and subjects didn’t feel subjects but information after that.
6) Which are the easy subjects in Sem V?
I personally found Portfolio Fund Management the easiest.
Bullet points. I do give a para-graphical introduction to the answer which sets its foundation.
Case studies are where you put what you have learnt in application. I take it up as a chance to test my knowledge, and when that happens you automatically give it your best,
Mood swings are distractions are part of your everyday life. I personally don’t force myself to prepare when i am having distractions, i take a break let my mind wander around all it wants quickly and then get back to studies.
I think the first step that i would take is making internships mandatory in our curriculum.
The wisdom of both life and competition is that if you do consider them as a race, remember like in any race sometimes you are ahead and sometimes you are behind. All you have to do when your behind is brace yourself and give in your 100%.
