Interview of students scoring 99/100 Marks in Business Studies


Dear students

We interviewed Vrishti Tokas &  Mehak Vohra of our school who scored 99/100 in Business Studies subject in Class 12 Board Exam 2019. We hope that their interview answers will give you guidance for prepration of this subject.

Vrishti Tokas 






1.                  How many hours in a day, you use to devote for preparing this subject?
I used to devote about an hour to Business Studies daily after school. It is a theoretical subject and thus requires constant hard work throughout the year. To develop a better understanding ,it is always suggested to start learning the concepts from the beginning of the session.

2.                  Which books did you refer for the preparation of this subject?
I mostly relied on NCERT textbooks which are prescribed by CBSE. I read it thoroughly along with some topics ,that had been added in syllabus and were notified by my school teacher. Apart from this ,I used a book by ‘Shiv Das' which has chapter wise ,marks wise and year wise case studies along with comprehensive study material provided by the school to reinforce learning.

3.                  Tell us about your methodology for studying this subject?
Firstly ,I always gave a thorough reading to each chapter and meanwhile ,underlined the important lines and terms. Then, I  made short and crisp notes of every chapter which made learning easier and proved useful for revision. And lastly, I attempted all the case studies and indirect questions that have been asked in the previous years simultaneously after finishing each chapter.

4.                  What was your preparation strategy to tackle case studies?
Most of the paper comprises of case studies that test the understanding and application skills of students. To tackle them, I followed a strategy as devised by my school teacher to first read the questions and then the case study. This helped me a lot. Reading the questions helps us focus on those particular areas that have been asked in the question while reading the case study. Thus ,it helps us to identify the correct concept and its allied features, advantages and limitations etc. It also minimises the chances of getting confused. Moreover ,I had practised many case studies before the exam.

5.                  Which Support material other than books, you used for your preparation?
I used the ‘Supplementary material’ issued by CBSE and the notes provided on the blog ‘www.bstclass12.blogspot.com’ for lengthy chapters like Organizing ,Staffing and Directing. Together with ,RSPL sample papers are also worth attempting.

6.                  What Tips and tricks would you like to share with students?
I feel that all the school conducted exams should be taken very seriously. One should follow a proper strategy for presenting the answers as well. The headings must be highlighted followed by a suitable explanation divided in sub-points. All the keywords should be highlighted. I find it better to start the paper from six markers, then five markers and so on. This reverse order of answering questions helps us to devote enough time to long answer questions as they should not lack content. They can even be supported with diagrams, flow charts, stick figures etc . It is equally important to practise one markers as they can be asked from in between the lines of the textbook.

7.                  In end , Please share your success mantra .
I made mind maps and tried to jot down the important points after learning every concept. It is necessary to  practise some full length question papers at home within the stipulated time to get used to the examination environment. I had consulted my teacher ,whenever I faced any difficulty. Hard work and determination can help overcome all odds. They are the secret behind any success.



 Mehak Vohra

1.                  How many hours in a day, you use to devote for preparing this subject?

 Since Business Studies was my favourite subject, normally I used to go through it everyday for some time. But during exams ,I used to sleep for only 6 hours and study the whole day! A constant revision is required.


2.                  Which books did you refer for the preparation of this subject?
NCERT is the key to all the solutions . Thorough go through is very important for everyone. I also practiced from previous year question papers and G S Alag’s book.


3.                  Tell us about your methodology for studying this subject?
My methodology was to make a mind map the chapter first which helped me to remember all the key points.
Since Business Studies is a theoretical subject it is necessary to study every day.
Generally students think they can learn it in the end and will get good marks.But it’s not true.You need to work  consistenly throughout the year in this subject. Because hard work pays off!!

4.                  What was your preparation strategy to tackle case studies?
Tackling case studies is not a tough task . I use to read it twice and tried to link it to the concepts. You should always practice different types of case studies .
Also, you should be thorough with the headings .

5.                  Which Support material other than books, you used for your preparation?
 I used to mainly study from NCERT book and study material provided by school which had  lots of case studies and worksheets.

6.                  What Tips and tricks would you like to share with students?
I would like you to make a mind map because its really helpful . Also concentrate on understanding subject and then learning  it . Headings are one of the most important thing in Business Studies , as  1/2 a mark is normally there for heading .

7.                  In end , Please share your success mantra .
I focused on my strong and weak points, mainly weak ones and tried to correct them. Making sacrifices and working beyond the comfort zone will definitely make you achieve a 100 .
Self study and dedication are key ingredients!! Good luck!
