Prachi Saraf Jalna topper

1.Congratulations on achieving such an amazing feat.   Tell  us  a  bit  about  yourself. Please  also  tell  us  your individual  marks  in  each subject.

My name is Prachi Saraf. I’m from Jalna….. completed my 2nd yr! 🙂

2.Did you have  a  set  schedule, a time  table  that  you stuck to?  What  were  the  daily  hours  that  you put in self study  ?

No, I didn’t have any fix schedule.
I gave around 8-10 hrs daily near exams for my study.

3.Did you have  a  different  methodology  of  tackling  the  subjects?  Any  special  notes  that  you prepared? 

I haven’t prepared any notes nor did I have any special methodology. I just understand the topic and get through it.

4.Was there  any  help  that  you acquired while  exam  preparation?  Like  any  visual  aids  any  professional guidance?  Or  those  little  tit  bits  that  the  professors  tell  us  but  none  other than the  toppers  pay  attention to? Please  share  with us. 

Ahh noo! There’s no visual aid or teacher guidance.

My friends helped me get through some topics which I didn’t understand.

5.How vital  is  the  Question bank during  exams?  Does  it  come  highly  recommended  or  you advice  thorough reading  of  the  text  and having confound knowledge  of  the  subject?

I find the question bank quite useful! We understand what has to be studied and where to start from!

I myself refer the question bank always!

6.Could you give  some  important  pointers  on  Exam  writing skills?  And also  how  should  one  prepare  for  a practical  exam?

Exam writing skill….we should focus mainly on the diagrams and the flow charts where ever required and also when not required.

For the convenience of the examiner and to get good marks!

7.So, do you have  any  parting thoughts?  Like  disclosing that  secret  mantra  that  you  chanted  or  that  special brand of  energy  drink  you savored?  Just  seriously  though..anything at  all?

Hahah! no there’s nothing like that! I used to get my sleep like I don’t care there’s any exam!

And yes when we are fresh, our mind is fresh we can learn the things faster.

So to all the Nighters I will suggest get the sleep first and then go to the exam!
