I had heard about the wonders of Backspace from some of my good friends who had been students here earlier and thus had no doubts about the value proposition. But hearing about something and experiencing it first hand are like chalk and cheese and joining Backspace was one of the best decisions of my life.
If there's one thing which PPD and Backspace have done for me is to instill within me the confidence to believe in myself. Having quit my job half a year back and then having unsuccessfully tried my hand at my own venture, I had gone on to mess up CAT and did not have many calls which I had initially aspired for. I still remember the day I met Partha sir for the first time after joining Backspace and shared my disappointments, concerns and goals. And there had been no looking back since then.
Having attended school, tuitions and university classes, I can say with conviction that the classes (or episodes as we called them) at Backspace fall into the rare category which one would never want to miss. Every episode, with its themes, discussions and activities, had its own takeaways and I always returned home with food for thought. The mock interviews were huge confidence boosters and the best part was the feedback and key insights which I got post the interviews which really helped me cover all the aspects of my preparation.
I happened to join late in the season and wish my journey at Backspace would have been longer. But all's well that ends well and thanks to PPD and the entire team at Backspace I have finally managed to not only convert my best call, from MDI Gurgaon, into an admission offer, but have also found the confidence to always strive for excellence without compromising on ethics.
