On the recommendation of his mother, he joined an institution named Dexterity Global, which helped him to build his CV. Vedant was at that time trying to find out colleges in which he could pursue higher studies, and he decided to enrol on a three-month career development programme.
In Dexterity Global, Vedant and other students were given weekly and monthly assignments which helped them boost their confidence and increase knowledge in subject areas. A team from Dexterity school, of which Vedant is part, won a climate competition challenge.

According to Vedant, students should make sure that they participate in extracurricular activities as active as they are in their studies. His resume properly mentioned all kinds of extra curricular activities he has participated in and also his weaknesses and strengths. That factor helped him to get into Case Western Uni for a scholarship of rupees 1 crore.
His mother, Vijaya Lakshmi Anandwade, said that one of the main reasons he got into the university with a scholarship was his active participation in extracurricular activities. According to her, the experience and confidence her son received while he was part of Dexterity Global also helped him to stand out as a candidate.
