Many congratulations to dear Chatterjee sir for your grand success on very first attempt. Your video is very helpful and inspiring and it is full of positive energy for those who thinks that carcking the exam in one year with a course curriculum of preimer college is next to impossible, but you did it and I hope many more will follow from next year onwards. In your video you said you worked as a free lancer for 5 years and that helped you to buold up your writting skills. I request you to make a special video over it so that many college students and others who lack in writting skills can follow your path and build their skills of writting. Thanks a lot for telling your inspirational journey.
नमस्ते sir.. Thanks for this amazing video.. If possible, then kindly provide some information regarding PHILOSOPHY optionals through someone as I also belong to a small town with no proper guidance.. I will be utterly grateful..
