Careers360 shares the interview conducted with V. S. Ramamoorthy to aid examination preparation of NCHMCT JEE 2014 aspirants.

Ramamoorthy, who is currently pursuing B. Sc in Hospitality and Hotel Administration course at IHM, Mumbai, offers valuable tips on how to beat the esteemed NCHMCT JEE exam. 

Read the interview below.

Careers360: Which other hotel management entrance exams did you take? How was your performance in those?

V. S. Ramamoorthy:  Apart from NCMCT JEE 2013, I appeared for the following three hotel management entrance examination- Manipal University entrance, Oberoi STEP Program, and IHM- Aurangabad by Taj Group.

Careers360:What are your views on benefits to be gained by hotel management aspirants by appearing in other hotel management entrance exams?

V. S. Ramamoorthy:   Taking other hotel management entrances besides NCHM JEE is really beneficial from my point of view. Test takers get a rough idea about what type of questions to expect and not to expect in the exams.   
 

Careers360: List a few hotel management entrance exams which should not be missed by hotel management aspirants. Share some light on it.

V. S. Ramamoorthy:   I highly recommend all aspirants to appear for all these four entrances taken by me, i.e., NCHMCT JEE, Oberoi STEP program, Manipal University entrance, and the IHM-Aurangabad entrance. Former two entrances give admission to 3 year course while last two mentioned entrances are conducted to offer admission to full time 4 year specialized hotel management courses.

Careers360:Did you aim for any particular hotel management institute? Share reasons for it.

V. S. Ramamoorthy:   My first target was to clear NCHMCT JEE and to secure admission at any one of 35 decent Institute of Hotel Management (IHMs). Rationale behind it was that IHMs are brand institutes, which is respected by everyone belonging to hospitality and tourism industry. No other institute in India enjoys such an immense respect. Moreover, many well-wishers of mine recommended IHMs over other institutes as the placements are much better there. I cannot guarantee anything on that field but frankly speaking, IHMs can be considered the best institutes in India for hotel management.

Careers360: What were your weak points and what were the strong ones? How did you tackle your weakness?

V. S. Ramamoorthy:   General Knowledge on tourism was the area where my exam preparation was low. To deal with the said weak point I used to read several tourism magazines. The only help that I had were the internet and various tourism magazines.

Being a NTSE (National Talent Search Examination) Scholar my strong point was Logical Reasoning and English. Thus, Logical Aptitude was a piece of cake for me.

Careers360: What were the reasons for choosing to establish your career in hotel management sector?

V. S. Ramamoorthy:  Ever since 7th grade I had a passion for cooking, which developed over the years for the love of food and learning more about it. In 10th grade, I became sure of my career goal and thankfully, now I am pursuing B. Sc in Hospitality and Hotel Administration course from reputed IHM Mumbai.

Careers360: How important is coaching for NCHMCT JEE preparation?
V. S. Ramamoorthy:
  The requirement of coaching depends from individual to individual. If one has no exposure in solving logical reasoning questions, social awareness questions and English aptitude tests. Then one certainly requires coaching.

Careers360: If some aspirant can't afford to take coaching, in what way he/she must prepare for the NCHMCT JEE Exam?

 V. S. Ramamoorthy: Well, follow the method I chose, solve previous years question papers and take other hotel management entrances.

Careers360: What was your time management strategy during the exams day? How did you manage it among the different sections of the paper?

 V. S. Ramamoorthy: There were 200 questions to be solved in 180 minutes (3 hours). Since I was not sure about some GK questions, I managed to finish 194 in the given time. Wherein I solved the Logical Reasoning first, followed by English Aptitude, the Science section, after which I attempted the Social Awareness section and lastly the General Knowledge section.

Careers360: Please share your valuable tips with the NCHMCT JEE aspirants.

 V. S. Ramamoorthy:   Just make sure that you keep a calm and clear mind while attending the exam. Instead of indulging in last minute exasperated studying, get involved in activities like listening to your favorite music just before the exam.

Careers360: Do you believe securing admission in a top and reputed hotel management makes any difference to your career prospects? Please elaborate.

 V. S. Ramamoorthy:   Yes. The kind of exposure and knowledge that you gain at reputed institutes can't be gained elsewhere. Every college has its own pros and cons, but at the end, a reputed college degree on your resume would help you on the long run.
