What Navdeep Singh’s Family Told about Him:

Gopal Singh
Gopal Singh
Navdeep Singh's Father

"He slogged hard as his focus was to be among the top 10 in the NEET. Right from his childhood, my son did only two things, study and sleep. He slept for just six hours after passing his tenth with an aim to be among the toppers.

Since I am a teacher of Physics, my son too developed an interest in the subject. It's the hard work you put that matters and not the place from where you do your Class XII."
