I was introduced to Backspace by one of my seniors who I was seeking suggestions from, about sharpening my GD-PI skills post the competitive exams. He, a student of backspace himself, suggested me to join Backspace without having any second thoughts. And so I did.
In the very first session, Partha sir made it clear that Backspace was not just a coaching institute. He told us that experiential learning will be given the utmost imprortance. He was right. Backspace was unlike any coaching institute that I had been a part of.
The sessions brought to light my flaws which, at times, made me doubt my abilities. But I always had Partha sir by my side who took it upon himself to prepare me for my calls. He kept encouraging me after every mock interview. No matter how insufficient I was in my performance, with a smile on his face, he always urged me to perform better in the next one. He believed in me when I didn't believe in myself.
My time at Backspace has been a life-changing journey for me. Not only did I find a mentor in Partha sir, I also discovered new aspects of myself. I learnt what I did mattered less than how I did it.
The group discussions, jam and various other activities made we aware of real-life problems and helped me learn how to the find their solutions. It has also helped me immensely in crossings the hurdles of the B-school admission process.
The personal interview sessions were extremely personalised. Backspace had a plethora of institute-specific questions which one had high chances of coming across in the real interviews.
Partha sir is always a phone-call away. I remember calling him anxiously before the interviews. He used to help me calm down and also gave some last-minute tips which turned out to be very helpful.
It would be wrong not to mention Siddharth sir and Aritro sir who took a lot of my mock interviews and gave me their valuable suggestions which only added credit to my entire learning process.
Thank you, Backspace.
