(a) I am from Commerce stream, what if I am unable to crack CPT/CA Exam. ? What next ?
(b) I opted Science Bio. I failed to crack NEET. All doors seem to be shut for me. What do I do now ? Any ray of hope / any options left for me ?

Giving examples of Sachin Tendulkar & Amitabh Bachchan he further said that one should focus on single field looking into the consideration the pros & cons & also one’s strengths & weaknesses. Always consider the famous adage “Jack of all trades but master of none.” before taking any decision.
