Toppers say there isn't a universal mantra to beat the game.

Students who wish to make a career in management or business have a number of courses to pick from. They can select from courses such as the Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting & Finance (BAF), BCom in Banking and Insurance (BBI), BCom in Financial Markets (BFM) and BCom. The BMS is a holistic course in management covering various business-related subjects such as marketing, management, accounting, finance and information technology for business. "Students who do not get an engineering or medicine seat after being coerced into it by their parents, should not lose heart. They can pursue any other course that they are passionate about such as hotel management, fashion and design, advertising, journalism and so on. The most important ingredient they must possess is conviction in themselves,""Schools are not allowed to fail students in lower classes even if their performance is bad. But when they come to class 10, they are suddenly asked to face board exams and are under pressure. Till then, there's no fear of exams and parents are also unaware of their children's performance.These have impacted the quality of education," says a teacher . "Students are more callous about their education today. Pressure is built suddenly in classes 9 and 10 but it should be applied in a gradual manner from class 7 onwards,".
