He casually started the preparation, while he was studying engineering. However, in his fourth year of engineering, he dedicated himself for the GATE exam as well. He did not enroll for any big coaching institute and went for the online materials available. He thoroughly followed the previous year’s papers, which helped him a lot. He spent 4-5 hrs and 7-8 hours daily and in weekends respectively. For refreshment, he used to watch his favorite TV series.
So, as we know there are no shortcuts for hard work but one needs to be steady also. We wish Ameya Dravid all the very best for his future Endeavour.
