Anudeep Durishetty – About his success
Anudeep Durishetty about his success:
This is my fifth attempt. I have failed thrice before, and the journey was not easy for me.
It is not necessary that one should enrol at a coaching institute. These days everything is available online.
It is a tough exam and so many deserving candidates with brilliant minds attempt. So you can never expect a top rank.
I am really happy to get this result today. I am grateful to all the people who supported me throughout. It wasn’t an easy journey, but i am happy to be here.
My family has been my backbone and if I did not have their support, I would not have been able to top the examinations.
