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

Maahi Trivedi: For hotel management examination I appeared for only NCHM JEE 2014.

Careers360: List a few hotel management entrance exams which should not be missed by hotel management aspirants.

Maahi Trivedi: As I only appeared for JEE, I don’t have much information regarding other exams.

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

Maahi Trivedi: Yes, I aimed for IHM Mumbai as it is one of the best government institutes for hotel management in Asia.

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

Maahi Trivedi: Current Affairs and General Knowledge were my struggling points. I tackled my weak points by reading newspapers every day.  I also got a fair idea of question types to expect for general knowledge section by reading ample of NCHM JEE preparation guides and books. Side by side I also used to read magazines, sample papers. 

Careers360: Reasons for choosing to establish your career in hotel management sector?

Maahi Trivedi: I am a big foodie and I love cooking. I aspire to become a successful chef in future. These reasons acted as catalyst for my decision to foray into hotel management sector. So I aimed to take admission at IHM, Mumbai.

Careers360: How important is coaching for the NCHM JEE preparation?

Maahi Trivedi: In my opinion joining coaching is not a must requirement for NCHM JEE preparation. I personally did not take any sort of coaching. I prepared for NCHM JEE by self study and enhanced my preparation by revising preparation guides and books for subjects such as: Numerical Ability and Scientific Aptitude, Reasoning and Logical Deduction, General Language and Current Affairs, and English Language.

Careers360: If some aspirant can’t afford to take coaching, in what way he must prepare for the NCHM JEE Exam?

Maahi Trivedi: I will advise aspirants to analyze NCHM JEE Sample Papers and get a decent understanding of what types of questions are repeated frequently. Questions covered in NCHM JEE guide/study books can also be analyzed for the same.

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

Maahi Trivedi: Always skip a question you don’t know and come back to it when you have more time, towards the end. This way you won’t miss out on a question you knew the answer but didn’t have to attempt the question.

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

Maahi Trivedi: NCHM JEE is not very difficult to crack. Aspirants need to be calm and must not divert from their focus by worrying a lot about how to score good marks.

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

Maahi Trivedi: Securing admission in a reputed hotel management institute definitely has many advantages. If you consider IHM Mumbai itself, it has made a name for itself and many hotels may tend to give an edge to IHM students when it comes to selection for industrial training or even jobs. Besides, the kind of training and education given at branded institute has its own merit. So, in my opinion, a reputed college definitely helps to boost career prospects of a student.
